But with the neglectful behavior of some pet owners, how long will this last? That's why I am asking for your help....

We stayed here early 2014. Booked online as I booked our other hotel 1 night short of what we really needed. We have never stayed at a Red Roof Inn before so I totally rolled the dice.

Just a stop over for one night, HORRIBLE!! The carpet and chairs in the room were filthy, the bed was broke, the heat/air didn't work right. One of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in.

I have stayed at dozens of different Red Roof Inns in the US in the last two decades but this was by far the worst. Most Red Roofs have been upgraded but not this one. This room is from the 1990s-- or earlier. It also needs a good cleaning. On top of that, my daughter called the hotel to talk...
