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.

What a dump! The eaves were all ripped out and covered in plastic, no mention of renovations at check in. Disgusting room... It smelled, the floor was so dirty. Furniture and room itself in rough shape. There is a reason it was cheap! Never again...

We recently spent a night at the Red Roof Inn in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The room was clean and roomy. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioner worked well. We had a handicapped room and the bathroom was large and the shower worked well. The hallways were not air conditioned and the carpet in the hallways is worn...

I stayed at this hotel b/c they are pet friendly. no charge. I had stayed here before back in 2011. I thought the property had gone down hill since then. It says they are under renovation, but I didn't see anyone working. I stayed a total of five nights. The first night I used a free night. I picked Red...

The room was clean and while small it was adequate. Pool was clean, a little cold but it was a hot day. Breakfast was simple but good and there was plenty of seating. Staff was friendly and prompt. The price was great but the area is a little unsafe feeling and some of the clientele questionable. Not sure what I...

I stay here about once a month and I am always happy with the service. Bobbie was proactive on a reservation for me that was a nice refreshing change from some of the service these days in business. Although the hotel is not up to date yet (it's under construction) the hallways and entry ways are still pretty bad..the rooms...

I booked this based on the Trip Advisor Rating as we had never stayed in a Red Roof Inn before. The hotel is Pet Friendly (doesn't seem to show on Trip Advisor but does on Red Roof website) and does not charge an additional fee for pets. The prior reviews have generally been accurate. Best Things Pet Friendly Clean Family...

I wanted someplace close to the freeway as I was just stopping for the night. The room was nice but absolutely freezing when I arrived. Nice TV; Free breakfast was so-so. Common areas were dirty looking especially front entrance. Carpet kind of icky in halls; no trim between wall and carpet and paint kind of ran onto carpet. Front grass...

It was very interesting. The desk representative was not in a uniform, looking unprofessional. The hotel was run-down and maybe under renovation. The toilet ran to refill every 15 minutes and the air conditioner sounded like an airplane on the tarmac warming up. The pool was really nice. The morning breakfast was not appealing so we ate at Perkins. With...
