Red Roof PLUS+ Pittsburgh South Airport
Ranked #49 of 72 Hotels in Pittsburgh
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I needed a clean budget room for a last minute short stay in Pittsburgh convenient to downtown and the airport. This location, with the newly remodeled rooms, fit the bill. The one staff person I met was friendly and helpful. The location offers no amenities (breakfast, pool, etc.), but provides a solid bed, good television, clean room, and decent linens. The location is ideal for quick on/ off freeway access, but it is in a busy commercial location. Don't expect to to hear the birds singing in the trees in the morning. The advance purchase, no refund, option can save you $10-$15. However, Red Roof has a silly $1.50 "room safe" charge which you have ask for back in a refund at check out, however.

Room Tip: Second story rooms have interior hallway access. First floor rooms have outside access.

We were a little unsure since we usually Hotwire a better "grade" of hotel, but with prices high in Pittsburgh we "setttled" for a two star hotel. The room was very nice--the hotel had touted beforehand about remodeled rooms and the room was nice with hardwood floors and most importantly very clean. I'm a little obsessive compulsive, so I take a good look and nothing to worry about there. One reviewer mentioned something about area being sketchy, but I'm not sure what that was about--the entire area is hotels, restaurants, a mall, gas stations, etc. Very good restaurant next door. The front desk was a little slow considering we had gone through hotwire and i was the only person being waited on. I was a little concerned about a recent reviewer who came back one night and said there was no parking (we would be coming back late from a ballgame) and when I asked the front desk I received two blank looks. For those concerned as well, we had plenty of spaces to choose from.

The only thing to remember is this is a no frills hotel. My wife commented that she was used to a hair dryer in the bathroom, so she didn't bring one and Red Roof didn't supply that, but otherwise for under $70 on a Saturday night, this hotel fit the bill. Excellent locations and also very close access to 376 for those going to Airport or back to Pittsburgh.

We have stayed for three days in this red roof inn. If you do not pay too much (>85$), it is a good stay. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. It is easy and fast to go to Pittsburgh. There is a large mall behind the inn.

We booked 2 nights stay at this hotel. On first night, we came back to a room that smell really bad. Mild dewy, stale smoke, almost smells like homeless person who hasn't shower for a week. Bathroom vent was not working, AC makes the smell even worse. Room was missing toiletries and was not clean. On second night, we switched to another room across and the room was fine. It didn't smell bad and it was clean.

Parking was limited at the hotel and we found no parking space left upon returning to the hotel. We ended up parking in the lot in front of the hotel which belonged to a restaurant next door. The front desk clerk told us he'll keep an eye on the car to ensure that it won't be towed away. He assured us that the restaurant usually confirm with the hotel before calling for a tow truck. Yikes...

We have stayed in many Red Roofs and expected very basic clean hotels. This one was the worst by far. Seems that if you are unluckily assigned one of those 'bad' rooms, it will certainly be a very disappointing stay. Not sure why hotel management addresses the complaints from those specific rooms where vents are not working, rooms not thoroughly cleaned. Hmm...

Room Tip: Ask for a different room immediately if you don't like the room assigned! Or better yet, ask to...

Needed a place to stay overnight close to the airport but not so close that I heard any jets. This hotel fits the bill. They have a free shuttle but be forewarned that it is not the hotel's shuttle, they service other hotels in the general area so make sure you leave plenty of time to make your flight. The cost of the room was okay for what you get. Staff was friendly and helpful. The diner next to the hotel serves a great breakfast. No elevator so if you have mobility issues be sure to ask for a ground floor room. Be sure to have $1.50 charge removed off your bill when you check out if you don't use the safe. I would stay there again if I was watching my budget. It worked great as a layover hotel. No frills.

No TP or toiletries in our room. Super nice front desk staff. When we tried to order a movie we had to call the front desk, which insisted we return for a $50 deposit on our credit card! Never, ever had that happen before. Won't be staying at one of these again.

Room Tip: Stay in building down from main/front desk building. Quiet location.
