This Red Roof Inn, like most of them we've seen, was a two-story building with outside room entry. We like the fact that Red Roof Inns don't charge an extra fee for our pets. There was an AKC Dog Show the weekend we stayed, so there were all breeds of dogs around in the mornings and evenings. But we never heard any barking or whining while we were in our room. There are small areas of grass for dog walking around all of the parking areas, and a large empty lot on the left side of the back building.
We were on the second floor, in a "Superior King" room, which meant we paid a little extra for a fridge, microwave, and a tiny coffee maker. The room was very nicely decorated, everything looked fresh and clean. The carpet was a textured brown, smart for a pet friendly hotel! The front desk person said the motel had been renovated about a year ago. The flat screen TV worked well, the AC unit was quiet and soothing, and the blackout curtains did as good as they could, considering there was a porch light right outside the door. The shower head was high with good water pressure. The wifi signal in room 219 was very good. The bed was comfortable with four good pillows.
This Red Roof Inn does not offer breakfast, just coffee in the lobby, but there is a Waffle House next door that serves diner-type breakfasts. I had some good scrambled eggs and oatmeal with fruit, and my husband said his grilled biscuits and gravy were good. The service was very fast.
Unfortunately, there were a couple of odd occurrences while we were there. Our room was not cleaned on Saturday at all. No new towels, the coffee wasn't replenished, nothing. The front desk person did genuinely apologize when she found out the next morning. It was not a big problem for us. But the other... My husband was approached by a man who appeared to be staying at the motel. After talking for a couple of minutes, the man asked him for enough money to buy three gallons of gas (the motel is also next to a gas station). So my husband knew he was being scammed and said he had to go to his room. When he had walked about 30 feet away, policemen surrounded the man, arrested him, and led him away. Should that make us feel less or more secure? You decide for yourself. Bravo to the police!
