The lady that checked me in was very nice. The room was clean, bathroom was clean and bedding was clean. I stayed in a king room and the bed seemed kind of low. but was comfortable. Plenty of pillows. Lots of channels on the TV. Internet worked good. No excessive noise from others. She said there was a limited breakfast available, but I left early and didn't get any. Very good weekday rates. I'm very satisfied with my stay.

Hate to leave a bad review but this place is horrible! When we tried to check in the guy in charge had his feet on the coffee table and was high as a kite! Said I seriously doubt it with slurred words. We stayed here last last year and it was ok besides Chase offered drugs to our neighbors. Room was clean and updated. We decided to stay an extra day after staying at the Riverbend cabin. When we checked in there were older ladies with a 120 lb dog barking at us and scared my wife. After supper we came back to have a good sleep. The ladies beside us we were loud and dog barking. We complained to the desk several times and then realized they were employees. They told us to leave for complaining to much and one came to our door and said what is wrong with you! We said we just wanted to go to sleep. We left in such a hurry without one of our suitcases containing juicy couture $100 perfume. And other things totaling $1,000. Said nothing was left , they obviously divided it up between them! Turns out they were employees, divided our stuff between them. By the way they have a cat that’s ear is hanging off his face we offered to take to a vet and pay to get him fixed. Check the cameras if you have them corporate! You’re people that run this motel are all using drugs! Will be telling our story on all social media! If you think we give bad reviews a lot follow us on trip advisor and see we rarely give bad reviews! Stay here at your own risk! They said we didn’t leave any thing after they took what they wanted and through away what they didn’t want! Never stay at Ref Roof ever!

We reserved the room last minute the night before. We’ve never stayed at a Red Roof before but because we were traveling with our dog we decided to give it a shot. We got to the hotel to check in and they didn’t have the room we reserved (2 queen room) but instead had us in a king suite which sounds great but my 2 boys weren’t exactly thrilled about sleeping on a disgusting pull out couch. But we accepted it and moved on to the next issue. We booked the room at $260 (which was overpriced but given the last minute timing and the time of year, it wasn’t unexpected), however they tried to push the room rate up to $320 when we arrived because they were putting us in a “nicer room”. Obviously that wasn’t going to work so after a brief conversation that was corrected. So then we get to our room we first pull out said couch to find a disgusting mattress with food crumbs. No biggie, we wipe it off and deal. Then we notice things moving on the ceiling...yes, the room was infested with bugs. A huge stink bug on the curtain, let bugs throughout the room. But that’s not all, there was also a water bottle under the air conditioner and an open liquor bottle in the freezer. Needless to say we got a refund and found another place. Do yourself a favor and don’t book this place.
