I'm not sure what the other reviewers are talking about this being a sketchy place. Yes, there are some folks who hang out outside of their rooms, but that doesn't make them automatically up to no good. It's a non smoking hotel and people hang outside to smoke. A few were drinking too, but nothing crazy or too loud and...

Ok lets start off by saying that the hotel itself isnt awful, it is the people they have staying there and no security. Second night there room next to us a guy busted the window out and pulled a woman through it. Another night drunk couple upstairs fighting all night. Then you have all the drug addicts roaming around the...

Dear Randy, Thank you for your comments, it was unfortunate that someone broke the window to the room next to yours. We did have the police investigate to ensure there were no injuries and find out why they did this. You also mentioned someone arguing upstairs on a prior night. Please be assured we do monitor the property and take...

Toilet was broken, called front desk twice, 4 hours later I had to walk to the office. First night at 0200 in the morning there were people in the parking lot blasting their music, the base was shaking my room.

Dear Eric, Thank you for letting us know about your stay with us in January. I am sorry about the toilet not working, and the clerk not following up on time.

Older Red Roof with Typical Drive-Up Rooms. Basic Rooms / Nothing Fancy. Advertise as 100% Smoke Free but Smoking was Very Present. People stand in their Doorway and Smoke and Walk the Walkway Smoking. If you are 100% Smoke Free How About Enforcing Staying Away from the Doorways , Eh. What is it with Smokers , Very Rude and Inconsiderate...

This was a disaster. Hotel has major deferred maintenance issues. Everything is in need of repair. It is so bad that our door mechanism got jammed and we were trapped in our room. When we went to use the phone to call the front desk for help, it didn't even work! We had to climb out the window, thankfully on...

Not a good place to stay. Be leery of what you can't see. I had to do two doctor visits behind my stay at Red Roof Inn. The room was still dirty from the previous visitors. There was soap scum and hair in the bath tub, along with facial hair in the bathroom sink and used tissue under the bed.

Room was billed as non-smoking. It was obvious that smoking had occurred in the past, especially in the bathroom area. Room was quiet, convenient (outside door) and bed was very comfortable. Desk clerk said it was very difficult to control people who chose to smoke in the room but would have maintenance work on it right away. Room rate was...

I rarely write bad reviews, especially of economy hotels, because I figure you get what you pay for. I'm okay with no-frills or lack of amenities. What I'm not okay with is filth. My room at Red Roof Inn was disgusting, not in its entirety, just the wall beside the bed. There was a booger collection on the wall that...
