First of all I want to say the front desk people are very nice and trying the best they can to run a large low end budge hotel. Most of the time my experience with Red Roof is pretty consistent and good. Usually slightly above Motel 6, Super 8, Econoldge, etc... But this was a very low end Red Roof....

The water in the shower was barely over body temperature & the visible stains on the comforter sent it straight to the floor. They had a mini safe in the room but a microwave & mini fridge would have been more useful considering they did not offer breakfast when most hotels in this price class at least offer cereal and...

There are pros and cons for this property. I will list the cons first: * The toilet was found to be clogged right off the bat. The lady at the front desk let me use their plunger to unclog it. * The carpet had a large stain near the door, and off to the right. The carpet was rather worn....

I don't know who determines the Diamond Star AAA rating but I wanted to drop a quick note to describe our less than amicable experience at this hotel. I chose to reserve two rooms at the Red Roof Inn Knoxville Univ of Tenn for my recent family trip to Tennessee during Thanksgiving weekend through my Mid Atlantic AAA travel website....

We spent one night in this hotel on our way back home. It was a good place to take a rest before going on the road again. However, the room wasn't clean, the carpet was awful, there was no toilet paper, the bed top sheets were not so clean. The staff was friendly though.

Red Roof Inns welcome pets without a pet deposit. This is what we needed and the room worked perfect for this. The room was clean and in a good location. We saved a few bucks by booking it online. There are lots of places to eat close to the hotel.

We made reservation and when we arrived they gave us a first floor room that smelt like a used cat liter box. They were nice and moved us but I feel this should not have happened. The new room was clean and on the third floor.

Red Roof Inn is in a great location. Everything you need is within a ¼ mile. But the really pleasant part was the room (room 123) was very clean, the shower had great water pressure and everything worked. Kathy was very pleasant, much more pleasant than most of the people. She was in the midst of working a double shift...
