The lady who greeted us at the front desk was an absolute gem! What a sense of humor. As we were finishing the check-in process, she said, "If you need anything (other than money), call anytime day or night. If you need money, call 1-800-Obama."
Our room was well cleaned and well-lit. The entire Red Roof Inn is non-smoking. Why doesn't every hotel adopt this policy? There are plenty of fluffy white towels, of both hand and bath sizes. Spacious room to hang clothes, a rack on which to put my bag, and blessed, blessed heat on this chilly night. Plenty of outlets that can be reached without moving furniture and free, unsecured wifi make this a pleasant stopping place.
The shower has one of those silly convex curtains that are supposed to make the shower seem more spacious. Is anyone out there fooled by that? I hope not! The sink is in a separate alcove outside the toilet/shower room. Again, why doesn't every hotel adopt this practice?
There is no breakfast included, continental or otherwise. A "Room Service" menu is in the room, but don't be fooled -- it is from "Order Inn" a private company which delivers to hotels in a given area. Take careful note of the prices -- some are rather cheap but some are outrageous. Also, pay attention to the $3.50 "packaging fee" added to each order. Further, the service is not available on "Most Major Holidays." Believe it or not, this is National Work Zone Awareness Month. Is that considered a "Major Holiday"?
I am most happy and satisfied with the balance of quality received and room rent paid. I would happily stay here again.
