This is the followup Red Roof Inn review from my Kentucky one. Hubby and I stayed 6 nights at this Spartanburg Red Roof Inn, so I have a pretty good idea of what is and what is lacking in this hotel.
The best asset this hotel has is the staff! Very helpful front desk (Jeannie) and super cleaning crew keep the place going, but only on a shoe string. I am being critical, but not in a mean way, but in a constructive way, so this hotel can prosper, and compete.
We ate the "continental" breakfast twice during this stay. The offerings were sparse: consisted of danish, or those hostess type pecan roll with no icing; two kinds of dry cereal, Raisin Bran on the bottom of the container, with a frosted bran flake poured over the raisin bran to fill the container, and Fruit Loops. There were two bowls of ice, one to hold milk, and the other to hold a gallon container of orange juice. The breakfast area has a juice dispenser, with " Out Of Order" sign taped to the front. Continuing, there is some swill that is offered for coffee, but is probably that chock of nuts or something else. Not good at all. To add injury to the insult, the Coffee Mate liquid quart of creamer is left out, and when dispensed in my cup, fell out of the spicket with a plop.....There is also bread and toast, but I did not see any jellies or butter to accompany.
This hotel is shabby, and has a disheveled look, all because it needs a facility manager. The dining area for breakfast has most ceiling lights out, most table legs have been "fixed" with duct tape, (man thing) and there is no employee assigned to bus tables, and wipe the counter where people fix their food. The trash containers are constantly filled, and overlflowing, and were only emptied on my floor corner once in the 6 nights we were here. There are several lights in the hall and stairwell areas that are out, and would make it difficult for the elderly or even me to navigate at night.
The ice machine simply barely works. Most of the time it was out of ice, and at 8 AM the first morning, I was able to get an ice bucket almost full, after pushing the button at least 25 times.
The pool was fine, and I used it twice. I asked for pool towels, and Jeannie at the front desk had to leave her post and get them for me. The pool does have a green tint, but that is the color of the liner. Finally, the whole place is in desperate need for a makeover, as there is trash, cigarette butts, cups, etc. scattered throughout the property. This place could use a good powerwashing, and then fresh paint would make it look 100% better.
The whole time here, in spite of the trash, I did not see one bug of any kind, and that is due to the supurb cleaning by the maid service.
