After reading the reviews we choose here & were happy with the rate. It's a basic room but everything was updated, clean, flat screen tv, bedding looked brand new. Free wi fi too. No hair dryer though. Can hear the highway from our room but it didn't bother us.

We stayed here because of all of the reviews. Great value lodging. Close to really good food - famous Dave's is worth the trip. Kroger right down the road. Room was clean. Great price. We were very comfortable. A little small, but it is worth the money.

The Red Roof Inn is located off of Interstate 40. The rooms were adequate and the rate was excellent. There were not too many ameneties, but for a budget motel at least it was livable for an overnight stay. No breakfast is offered, but there is a nearby Shoney's that has a breakfast buffet. There is no pool as previously...

This was a pretty good discount stay, certainly a lot cheaper than other hotels in the area. Our third floor room was clean and comfortable -- good bed, shower, curtains, spacious suite. The air conditioner worked very well and provided a nice white noise cover for any outside noise that may have been present. The staff was friendly and accommodating...

Decided to stay at this hotel due to the value and online reviews. I was not disappointed at all. I was greeted warmly at the front desk by Lorraine. Check-in was a breeze and I received the room that I reserved. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable as far as hotel beds are concerned. I needed...

Getting to location is tricky due to road construction and changes in the exits, but once there I was very happy. It had been a long day of driving, so I wanted food delivered that was not pizza. The receptionist had a menu of a family-owned restaurant that had about everything one could imagine. It was reasonable, tasty, and hot!!!...

We have stayed at this motel multiple times, and every time has been excellent for a hotel in this price range. The rooms are very nice and the upkeep is excellent for the brand and price. In 5+ stays, we've only experienced one cleanliness issue, when there was food left in the refrigerator from the previous guest, but the linens...

I used a coupon for this stay ($42.99). The "Coupon" room does not come with a refrig or a microwave. There was a huge stain at the front door (room 111)....dirty towels were still hanging in the bathroom and the room had a slight pet odor. I gave it two stars because the front desk ladies were really sweet. There...

Our family is on a road trip. We were looking for an inexpensive, but nice place to stay. This was perfect. The room was simple, but it was clean. We slept a few hours, grabbed food from the same exit and were off. Very uneventful :)

We tend to look for Red Roof Inns when traveling because they are pet friendly. Our experiences have usually been "satisfactory". The stay at this facility was above and beyond our expectations. At check-in, Nicole (the asst. manager) showed her personable touch by chatting about our trip from Florida that day, as she was scanning her computer screen for a...
