Red Roof Inn Charleston - Kanawha City, WV
Ranked #14 of 23 Hotels in Charleston
Reviewed December 28, 2007

I stayed here one night. My special internet rate of about $42.00 plus postive reviews on TripAdvisor sold me. I mostly have positive stays at a Red Roof, but this one could use some improvement. The front desk, while friendly could use some more information on the immediate area. I asked if there were any 24 hour restaurants and she did not know. I actually found the IHOP across the street open 24 hours. The room could been cleaner. It seems the carpet needed a vaccuming, plus the carpet was stained and/or faded. The linens were clean, but I could see some stain that didn't come out on the comforter.
The bed was comfortable and everything worked well. For the price, I was not complaining.

Upon arriving at room in the Red Roof Inn in Kanawha City, WV, we noticed that one bed was turned down, but not the other. Considering this only an oversight, further inspection revealed that both beds were poorly made up. Again, willing to overlooked this possible mistake, we later noticed a pair of dirty panties and a t-shirt laying behind the bathroom door. This provided us with enough evidence to conclude that the cleaning staff did a poor job and we immediately left the room.

We notified the front desk, and, to her credit, she offered to clean it for us herself. However, we weren't willing to wait for this to be done since the time was 10:00 p.m, so we went on our way. Overall the motel was a bit rundown and definately subpar, even for the rate we were paying. We eventually found a room at a Days Inn about 45 miles away that was much nicer, much bigger, and less expensive. If you can, I suggest you bypass this Red Roof Inn and stay at the Days Inn in Huntington, WV.

I highly recommend the Red Roof Inn in Kanawha City.

Getting in to the hotel parking lot is somewhat of a pain, but it's all gravy after that. The staff was very friendly, our room was immaculate, and best of all, it only cost me $57 with tax!

The hotel has recently been remodeled, and everything looks brand new. Our room was clean and comfortable. The AC wasn't the greatest, but it looked like it was the original one from when the hotel was first built. Everything else, from the comforters to the television set all looked like it just came from the store. The beds were comfy, and I had no problems sleeping. The front desk staff were very nice and very helpful.

The hotel is about 10 feet from a Wendy's restaurant, so if you're hungry, you can easily grab a bite to eat there. There are also plenty of restaurants and gas stations within a short driving distance.

There are no amenities at this hotel (pool, etc.) so if you're looking for a weight room or a hot tub, you'll have to pick another hotel. However, if you want a clean, comfortable, cheap stay, this is definitely the place for you!

Solid economy lodging near food and gas options. For a traveler on the road looking for a bed and clean room, you can't go wrong with this Red Roof.

The room was clean with comfortable bed. Standard Red Roof decor. The
furniture was well-maintained and bathroom was spotless.

The hotel itself was a little tricky to find with an awkward entrance
off of a entry off of the main road (might want to get good directions from the highway exit to the property).

There are other hotels and services in the immediate area - pretty much your standard exit ramp traveler situation.

The staff were helpful and polite. Plenty of parking. Area was safe enough for me (female traveling alone).

Internet available, but not free. If you want wi-fi, there's a Hooter's down the street with free wi-fi and great wings.

I would recommend this Red Roof to anyone passing through and looking
for a night's rest.

Note: I've stayed at several Red Roof Inns and they aren't all places I'd recommend. Some were pretty bad - this one is really good and a bargain at $40 a night.

Having literally walked in off the street, I was given a "business king" that cost me, including my AAA discount, $46. The room included a nook-style business desk, a comfortable king bed with crisp turned-back sheets, tasteful abstract art on the walls, a halogen desk lamp, unlimited long-distance calls to anywhere in the U.S. (!), and an adjustable executive chair. The only misstep was the absence of a hair dryer.

I've paid three times as much for far less at "name" hotels. What a nice surprise!

Pretty clean, although eerie old dust in bedframe. No sound on some TV channels, staff said recurring problem. Booked king bed, but received double queen. Staff blamed online registration, shrugged shoulders, although gave discount. Situated in unpleasant area almost under the interstate. Other than that it is the normal, decent, budget price Red Roof quality.
