We booked a previous hotel on hotels.com (Durham Skyland Magnuson Hotel). This hotel looked like a hotel out of a scary movie. We cancelled our reservation and drive to Red Roof. Tasia greeted us with the most pleasant smile. She provided world class customer service to myself and my family. She was warm and friendly and made our stay at... More

I stopped in after traveling all day, I was tired and searched and found this place while on the rood. Very nice hotel and it was close to the highway and quick access to gas stations and stores. It was the perfect location so that I could continue my trip the next day.

We were concerend of our neighbors at first that were smoking weed, and had about 30 people coming in and out but it seemed to quiet down towards the evening. Our... More

Found these lovely bugs on my pillow when I woke up. After a month of waiting on Red Roof to get back to me about this incident, they said no bugs were found in the room so nothing would come of this. On the other hand I have stayed here before with no issues.

We just needed a one-night stopover with our 2 small dogs. I can't say anything really bad, but it was just the most Spartan room ever, very dated and bare. The flooring was vinyl (I suppose because it is pet-friendly), so you had to wear shoes of some kind. There is no food onsite whatsoever but Texas Roadhouse is just... More

I stayed here for 2 nights for a conference. It was very affordable, quiet and the room was great. King size bed (could have been a little more comfortable, but I've slept on worse), desk, fridge, and microwave were great conveniences. The only issue I had was the wifi connection. I was at the other end of the hall from... More

This hotel was no frills, but very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. We just wanted somewhere to sleep while we checked out the area. Close to all major highways and restaurants. Good place to stay if you just want somewhere clean, and get a great rate.

I've seen reviews in the past about Red Roof and they've never been desirable. However I was quite surprised with this location. The room was clean and looked decent. I would stay here if ever in Durham, NC again.

The room was clean, but smelled like a smoker's room. The staff was courteous and we were able to have our dog with us. For us, we would stay here again, but only for an over night, not for several days.
