This stay was a last-minute change of plans to put a break in a long international journey, so I wasn't shooting for the moon - just a clean, comfortable bed near the airport. I'd recently been staying in 4-and-5-star Inns and Resorts during a 1-month Christmas/New Year's holiday in the U.S., so my expectations were quite low. So - my first stay in a Red Roof Inn - THIS one, at least - was a pleasant surprise. For $50 a night I got a very nice, exceptionally large room (#221) - clean, comfy bed, big flat-screen TV, mini-fridge, safe, microwave, large, wrap-around business desk, coffee maker, etc. I've stayed in a LOT worse for a LOT more. The front desk was kind, courteous and helpful, both in person and when I called in advance to notify of a 9 p.m. arrival. The rep told me to take a taxi from the airport - not to wait around for the shuttle, and they'd reimburse. I thought, "Right, and Penelope Cruz is gonna call me for a date tonight." But 10 seconds after I approached the desk with my receipt, the full cash reimbursement was handed to me. The view is a spectacular vista of a parking lot, but really, did you expect the Grand Tetons? A couple of things to be aware of: the location, while close and convenient to the airport, is NOT within walking distance of ANYTHING, including FOOD. Your late-night choices are pizza and wings delivered. And if you crave a cold beer (or any other alcohol) after a long journey, best to have the taxi stop at a convenience store, because you won't find it here, and nobody delivers. So, those caveats aside, I would stay here again - it is what it is, and it's a good value.
