I was short on time to get my son dressed to go to his prom. I got checked in. We walked to room 117. House keeping was cleaning. I didn’t have any time to spare. I went back to the front counter to get some help. A very nice young man said he would check. We followed him to the room. He spoke to the house keeping lady, she said it would be around 10 minutes. I said I don’t have 10 minutes. He went right back in grabbed a couple trash bags and some cleaner. He volunteered to help without a question. I almost fell over. Normally I would expect to hear “ sorry but that not my job”. Steve needs to be recognized for this simple but huge effort. Thank you very much Steve!!!!!

This is a really nice budget motel...no frills but clean and friendly. Convenient to UFL and I-75. Staff was very helpful from check in to check out. Had issue with hairdryer not working and they installed a new one right away and they followed up to confirm was good to go. Did not get a chance to use pool, but looked great. Disappointed they don't have breakfast but clearly says on website so you know in advance so that is fair. Would stay here again.

This was my first time at a Red Roof Plus and I was impressed. Nicely updated room that was very clean and comfortable. I was happy to be booked in a King Room with my dog. Very pleasant staff. Reasonably priced. And bonus of no extra charge for pets!

We stopped on the way home from visiting family during Covid. We chose this place because they were rated high for cleanliness and safety during Covid. The place is old and not well kept. There were stains in the kitchen and bathroom. The pill pot couch was falling apart. Springs stuck out and hurt my son at night. There were rips in the couch. However on the flip side the staff was extremely warm and friendly. Unfortunately they were not able to control some guests who were not masked during COVId despite the law. We will ne we return.
