Location is near supermarkets local restaurants and laundry facilities. Simple amenities free coffee and the staff has been great at accommodating any needs I've had since check in. So much that I've decided to stay 2 more weeks Here! The housekeepers and quick and efficient especially Katie. Angela and Alivia at the desk are great employees with wonderful personalities. I often am just hanging out in the room as I am in between houses and they always make me feel welcome and give me great company in the lobby just to get away for a little bit! Michael the current GM is also very friendly and is always available to help as well. I truly am enjoying my stay here and these employees are a great asset to the red roof! Thanks guys!

This place sucks! Had to wait to get my door blow dryed bc they don’t have the proper freaking doors! This is very inconvenient & inconsiderate when it comes to paying customers. Get it together!!!!!!!!!!! If I could give a rate of -0 I would.

Room great! Breakfast - muffins, toast, cereal choices, juice, fruit and coffee of course in a pleasant setting. As we are traveling with our cat, the hotel needs to be predictable, accessible and pet friendly. This suits our needs. Very pleased to have stopped here.

Room Tip: Our room on the east side got the morning sun!

I recently got kicked out and needed somewhere to stay fast and they gave me a nice room w/a fridge and microwave.I have a kitten also that I was scared he was going to runaway cuz he is very skittish and I ask them to not go in my room when I’m not there and they respected my wishes and didn’t go in my room till I gave permission for them to go in.The staff is amazing the lady that cleans my room (Ashley) is very respectful of my things. Now of course since I have a kitten there’s a liter box and she took out the bag that had the kitty litter in w/o me asking I felt bad cuz it’s not her job it’s mine but she did it anyway and I’m very appreciative of that.amazing service would definitely stay here again (been staying here for 2 weeks )And the neighbors next to you never bother you and are quite. And when my light in the bathroom stopped working they fixed it right away.

Room Tip: Bottom suites are the luxury ones there also non smoking.

We stayed here for 2 nights while in the area visiting attractions check in was fast and easy no unexpected fees. We had a room with microwave and fridge also a safe and sitting chairs and desk area. Other than that it was a little spartan no hair drier. A small bathroom and shower that drained slowly. The beds were comfortable and the place was clean there are many places to eat and shop well within walking distance. There's a Walmart next door in the plaza. We had no problems whatsoever. If in the area I would stay here again.
