During my weekly stay Ms. Yolanda is wonderful hostess, with business and friendly personality. Yolanda goes above call of duty to make my stay PERFECT. If you are traveling to or through Rockford Red Roof is perfect place to stay enjoy.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2011

I stayed at this hotel because it had gotten surprisingly good reviews. I'm used to staying at 3 or 4 star hotels, but I needed a hotel just for one night and I didn't want to spend much money. I also needed a hotel that had smoking rooms. So the Red Roof Inn fit my needs. the price was great, and the room was decent. It was definitely nothing fancy. It was pretty clean, although I did find a few stray hairs in the bed. The bed was comfy though. The tv didn't have too many channels and the volume in the remote didn't work. It was a fine place to stay for just one night.

Upon arrival at the hotel the price was right for the pocket and the room was very clean and smelled so good. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. Hot coffee was always available 24/7. Ms.Yolanda always greet you with a smile and ready to help. I will definatly be returning to this hotel for future stays. This hotel is one of the best in rockford, Illinois.

I was taking a weekend trip with a friend of mine to Wausau, Wisconsin for a weekend in October 2011 and stayed overnight at this Red Roof Inn on our way to Wausau. I read the reviews on TripAdvisor, thought they sounded okay. Plus I didn't want to spend too much on the room, but unfortunately most hotels in Rockford were a bit more expensive than I wanted to pay.

Anyway, this Red Roof Inn was acceptable but it wasn't the greatest. The room was clean and quiet, but there were some minor problems we had to deal with. First, the TV remote control did not work and we had to get up and change the channels on the actual cable box. (The channel lineup was pretty limited, so there wasn't a whole lot to choose from.) Second, the mattresses were saggy. We slept all right, but the mattresses could have been better. Third, there was a problem with the drainage in the bathtub when we took showers.

These problems are not major, but we paid about $90 for the room with tax. It really should have been about $10 to $20 cheaper - especially given the fact that there's no breakfast other than hot coffee.

The room was clean and served its purpose, and the staff were friendly and courteous. But the room was just so-so. No frills at all. It could have been a bit cheaper for what it was.

I gave this hotel a 4 rating due to one main factor... Yolanda. A guest services employee that was outstanding. She was up-beat, helpful and attentive to our needs. there were a few things that disappointed me about this hotel, but Yolanda took care of them and made my stay pleasant and the room was fairly modern and clean. They offer basic cable, free, Wi-Fi, and it was close to just about everything from Wal-Mart, to Starbucks, To The Texas Roadhouse for a great BBQ dinner. I would have not chosen this hotel again if Yolanda hadn't made it so wonderful. I can't say enough how refreshing it was to have a warm smile and kind words after being aggravated by a few set backs that she took care of immediately. Not only did she take care of my complaints she made sure we had extra pillows and towels waiting when we got back to our room. So if you wan t and easy affordable place to stay in Rockford, il go to the Red Roof Inn, and be sure to ask for Yolanda. She's there most days from 11am-5pm and some days she works overnight ans she will be more than happy to make you stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ask for Yolanda!

I travel with Dogs, (Spinone Italiano) and always appreciate the Red Roof policy of being Dog/Pet Friendly. This Property was easy to get to and had a pretty good Pizza/Italian place next door as well as nice grounds around it to let the boys do their "explorations". I add here that it is always very important for pet owners to pick up after their dogs so that we can continue to enjoy hotel/motel stays. Grounds were very nice. Desk people were very accommodating with providing menus, directions etc. Typical Red Roof experience room amenities .I was there for Hunting/training . would have like having flat screen and more channel access, but it is what it is. We 3 slept great and were ready for a big field day!
