Cheap hotel for a one or two night stay. Could use updating though out. Rooms are clean but the rest of the hotel could use a remodel. Older location and it shows. Friendly staff and very close to I380 and places to eat.

I'll cut management a bit of a break due to ongoing construction, but a coat of paint and general cleanup in the hallways and stairwells would do wonders to diminish the beat-up feel for this place. Our room itself was clean and the bed was very comfortable, although I'm not a fan of faux-wood flooring, but we definitely holed up...

I was not comfortable here. The king bed room was small, no chair except desk chair. Going through renovation and it shows everywhere. The comforter or bedspread had several stains. It was cheap, but would have bad more somewhere else for nicer room. Stayed here based on other reviews. Maybe things had changed since reserved couple months ago.

It's a tricky question, do you rate within the genre? I recently rated a Motel 6 with a 2, fair I think, but as a budget room perhaps higher. When one is choosing an inexpensive lodging expectations need to be adjusted. Is an in-room fridge worth an extra $10? This Red Roof Inn is in the middle of a much...

We (my children and I) woke up at 4 am covered in bed bug bites, they were actively crawling all over both beds!! I took pictures and videos! Still trying to contact managers for a refund and most importantly so they quit letting others stay in this room, but both general and district will not return my calls! The place...

First of all, I usually like Red Roof because they have a great pet policy for those of us who travel with dogs. They aren't a luxury chain, and I think my expectations were not out of line--I just want a clean, safe hotel. I have actually stayed here before and been satisfied with the motel, but this visit has...

Stayed for two nights. The walls in the room were freshly painted. The beds were comfortable. The place has outside walkways that are crumbling. The ceiling above walkways were also in terrible condition. I went to the free breakfast one day. There one piece of bread and some stale biscuits and gravy.

I rented two rooms, both lacked a waterproof shower curtain so both bathrooms had mold. The location is poor, being grouped with several other hotels right down the street from a strip club. You can, and should do better than this place.
