“Okay for the bare essentials”
Reviewed November 20, 2005

We stayed at the Red Roof as all the other hotels were booked. The staff forgot to clean the washroom but overall the room was very clean. No extra's at all. Remember to bring your own shampoo even. I would definetly spring for the Courtyard Marriott or the FairField Inn if you have a choice. Staff was exceptionally friendly.
If your looking for a basic sleep and leave spot, The Red Roof is alright as long as you get a room away from the Freeway.

Can't beat the cleanliness of this hotel for the price. Just try to get a room on the back side. The freeway noise might be bad on the front. Great staff. We were treated like old friends. If a meal is in order, the Longhorn steakhouse in Erie is pretty good. I would drive 100 miles further to stay at his hotel again.

Good rooms and friendly staff, but don't get a room facing the front. Straight onto the freeway, which meant most of the night and morning the room shook from the lorries thundering past. Worst nights sleep I had in 3 weeks of touring around. Stayed in another Red Roof Inn in Albany which was fine.

We recently stayed at this property and were pleasantly surprised by not only the quality of this inn but the overall friendliness of the staff. They are soon to begin a major renovation so I can only imagine how good this inn will look when it is completed. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty by providing local maps and directions. Everyone we came in contact with had a friendly hello and smile for us. Even the General Manager took the time to talk with us. If you are looking for an affordable hotel that is clean and friendly then this is the place for you!

The room was clean and the staff was very friendly! For the price you cannot beat it. Keep in mind it is a budget motel and do not expect anything luxurious. However, if you just need a place to rest with no frills this is the place for you!

I stayed at the Red Roof for one night at the Red Hot rate of $33.99. The staff was very friendly. The room and bathroom were spotless. I did notice some slight mildew between the walls in the shower, but it was not a concern as many places have this problem. They say they are renovating all the rooms in the next month or so. The bed was quite comfortable and the heat and TV worked fine. No, you won't get the frills such as hair dryers or little shampoos, but you will get a comfortable and clean room at a great rate.

If you want no frills (swimming pool, complimentary breakfast, ironing boards) but a nice clean and comfortable room at a good price this is it. The bathroom had a clean working toilet that did not make any unexplained noises and the shower had plenty of pressure and hot water and no clogged drains. The TV, A/C and heater all worked great. The room was very clean-even the window sill-no cobwebs in the corners! We stayed on the first floor of this 2-story motel and our car was only several feet from the front door making it very convenient to load and unload. Plenty of parking. The motel staff was very friendly during check-in and check-out. Didn't really need to associate with any of the staff during our stay since they were doing such a fantastic job.
Everything worked and the room was kept cleaned.
