Let me summarize - holes in walls, shower held up with duct tape, handicapped shower bench was pulled right out of wall, broken electrical socket plate, dirty stained bedspread, shady area. I don't know how a usually decent Red Roof corporation allows their name to remain on this place.

Save yourself and pass this one by, The whole street this motel is on is horrible. From the moment I pulled in and saw folks sitting outside I knew that if I stayed there would be 100% chance my car would get broken into. Checked in due to being tired from a drive. Ended up checking out five minutes later....

Absolutely disgusting! The first room we were given was infested with cockroaches. They were on every surface including the bed! Our second room was equally disgusting. The beds were not made and the sheets were severely burned by cigarettes. They also had various stains including blood. The room had two chairs with large stains and broken drawer set. The bathroom...

This is one review I hate to write. This is the worst place we have been to in over 30 years of travel. During check in someone was unhappy and was going to call police. Place was very noisy with kids running loose out side, refrigerator didn't work until I played with it, sink stopper broke, floor was very dirty,...

Booked through Expedia App Check in was quick, staff polite. Bug problems were immediately noticeable. Killed the first roach within the first 3 steps into the room. Several more through the night. In their renovations they replaced the typical cheap hotel room carpet with faux wood flooring. Unfortunately someone forgot to tell them you still have to clean hard floors....

I recently stayed here over the weekend to go to Bush Gardens Howl O Scream. I've been staying at this hotel for the past 4 years for that event since the hotel is so close to the park. I've never had an issue with it, till this year. This year from the moment I walked into the lobby I felt...

Needed to stay for one night. Nothing else was available. The worst place ever. We couldn't sleep all night. Everything was disgusting, didn't look that room even was cleaned...dirty furniture, somebody's hair on the bed... Worst experience.

Seriously. Get out. Does it look like a great deal? It isn't. It's probably the worst place I've ever stayed and we were there for less than 10 minutes. Don't bring anything into your room. Put everyone and everything back into the car, head down to Zeko's to get a bite to eat, and find somewhere else to stay. On...

“Ask for a room in the far corner of the property, away from the pool. The rooms near the pool tend to be the noisiest.”
