Met by a great helpful staff after a long day of travel. Nice rooms with updated facilities. There was an electric outlet everywhere we looked for charging electronics. The room lighting had many options. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable and soft. We had to ask for more pillows and towels but only because we were traveling...

While traveling to the beach our family, family of 4, stayed here. This nicely remodeled hotel didn't disappoint for what we were looking for. NO carpet in the room and everything was clean.

We found this "Suite" quiet retreat on Trip Advisor while googling around for reasonably-priced, pet-friendly accomodations near a business conference in Gainesville, Florida. When we walked into this Smoke-free King Suite on the fourth floor, we were wowed by a spotless, light-filled, spacious two rooms with kitchenette and bath. Along with the comfy bed and furnishings were two flat screen...

I left the hotel I was in to stay at Red Roof Inn. It was awesome, beautiful, and the staff was very respectful. The only downside is that it had no fridge in the room, but overall an amazing place to stay.
