Avoid. When I checked in the unfriendly and slightly scary person at the front desk told me their policy was to charge $1.50 more than my reservation as a "complimentary safe convenience fee" and after discussion agreed that they'd reverse it the next morning after I checked out. Foolishly I agreed. The room was awful. It smelled like a cave....

Thank you for posting a review of our property. I am very sorry that you had issues with your room during your stay. It sounds as if you were in one of the rooms that had not been renovated at the time. Since your stay, we have completely renovated our property. All rooms now have wood floors, new beds and...

Not impressed at all! I've stayed at Red Roof Inns in the past, because I travel with dogs. Obviously, I'm not expecting Hilton quality, but I do expect some basic cleanliness. I walked up the stairs to our second floor room, and to my disgust, there was a condom lying right at the top of the stairs. It's a hotel...so...

So Red Roof Inn's haven't always made a good impression on me in the passed. I once had to abandon a reservation because although I booked a non smoking room in a Red Roof Inn, their "non smoking" room was most certainly used for just that and they couldn't find us another room. We booked our room on Priceline at...

My family and I reserved two rooms here and were so disappointed that we will make sure we never stay here again. Not very clean, not a very nice area, driving a Uhaul while towing a vehicle with our valuables, there wasn't a safe place to park. The was clearly a pimp arranging for his "client" to come to the...

We reserved 2 rooms under the same reservation. You would think that the 2 rooms would be somewhat near each other. The rooms were not even in the same building and both sucked. The bathtubs would fill up after 2 minutes in the shower even though it took 20 minutes to get lukewarm water. The bathroom doors could not be...

My advice is sleep in your car before wasting your money on one of the dirtiest hotels I have ever seen. No refund so was forced to stay, I had to remove the used wash cloth from the shower....😝 This place should be condemned.

We were looking for a convenient and not too expensive place to stay. I can usually be wary if the price looks "too good to be true". Not so in this case. I just need a good CLEAN place to sleep. The staff was great. Felicia made sure that we got a room that fit our needs. . The room...

This place was dirty and sketchy. Even checking in was weird, with a guy behind a glass wall and sliding your credit card in, like you're at some kind of a late night, hood gas station. The young man was not very friendly, the room was gross and my bed spread had a icky stain on it. It was me...
