The hotel is still undergoing renovations - which is good and bad. The bad part is the mess and the number of rooms is limited. The good part is that the owner cares enough about the facility to renovate it instead of letting it run completely down. Another drawback to the current renovation project is the lack of first floor... More

We were treat so well! Barbara, the desk clerk, ask everyday if we needed anything and how our day went. The beds were so comfortable, the newly remodeled rooms were gorgeous and spacious. We were treated like family. I would definitely go back.

at check in Friday, 3/22, about 930pm, the desk clerk had the speaker phone on and was trying to make some kind of personal payment that was being declined. Instead of hanging up and getting me checked in, he attempted his transaction several times, still on speaker phone. After several minutes, and me pointedly looking at him with impatience, he...

We watch for Red Roof in the area that we are traveling. Their rates are competitive and so far the rooms have always been comfortable and clean. I have no problem recommending their chain. Their staff is helpful and fluent in English.

I've stayed a few times before the management has taken over (with great dissatisfaction). But Barbara at the front desk is so friendly and caring I only stay at this location when traveling. The new renovation rooms are beautiful. It's well worth the price now. And once again thanks Barbara. See you guys next month.
