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...

This hotel is mixed. The Front desk clerk was super sweet but, talks your ear off. Sometimes all you want to do is get to your room, esp late night check ins. The room was a smoking room so we didn't expect pristine but, it was in bad need of paint and bleach. The furniture is a bad 80s era...

Overall my stay here was pleasant. Rooms are very clean. Staff was very courteous and great. Room service is also good. I have been to many red roof inns but this stay was my best in all. I would definitely stay here again and recommend same to others.

After two long days of driving this room was like an oasis in the desert. Bed was very comfortable. The shower head was the best I've ever seen, including some top resorts in the Caribbean and the South. The room was quiet and there was free coffee in the lobby. Close to everything. Easy access. Would definitely stay here again.

Not worth the alleged savings. There was no breakfast as promised. The rooms were very old and the property in general was not very well taken care of. The only upside was that the staff was friendly.

This is a subsequent visit at this property, mostly based on the experience from the previous visit. The rooms are quite large for the price. The room had a king size bed with clean sheets. The bathroom was clean, with no dingy caulking in the corners, etc. I also liked the fact that the shower curtain did not sway in...

Dirty and old. Would never stay there again. Poor service. However. Allowed dogs at no charge. The only redeeming value. Poor service with woman at the front desk who continually answered The phone while checking in guests.
