They need to get the smoke smell out of the room.
We had four rooms. They all smelled strongly like smoke or cigarettes. The air/heat could not be controlled. Some rooms had cleanliness issues.

Needs attention.
Room was dated, a/c controls were missing which made it difficult to control temperature, tub drained very slow, back door was broke so we didn’t feel secure, housekeeping staff didn’t speak English very well which made it difficult to communicate needs. Beds were comfortable.

I will stay again!
I was pleasantly surprised having never had stayed in a Red Roof Inn before. It was clean, comfortable and cost effective.

Great for just a place to sleep.
It was perfect for a place to sleep while passing through town. The bed was very uncomfortable (sunk in) and the shower wouldn’t fully engage so we were standing in a tub full of water with the shower running at a very low pressure.

Red Roof- was okay
The hotel looked to have been recently semi updated- not everything was renovated. Public areas- had been- new carpet in the hallways- New fast elevator. rooms had recently had new vinyl on the floors, new vanity in bathroom. Caulk around the tub was new and poorly done- but overall room was clean. They had just slapped a coat of paint on the doors to make them look a bit more presentable. At night, a ton of construction workers were coming in. Small Spanish speaking kids with out adult supervision were in the business area playing games on a the red roof computer and then they were in the lobby eating breakfast w/no adults. I did not feel safe enough to park in the back and enter through the back door that was closer to my room. Breakfast area was clean and well maintained. They had the same thing all 3 mornings I was there, sausage links and some flat round egg patties. I needed to add a night to my reservation- it was a hassle to do so through and through the hotel. So ended up booking from a customer service person from but I had to pay double the rate I had originally received. I had called hotel directly first and they refused to help me but said they had plenty of rooms. Frustrating from that standpoint. Guy who was working front desk in the morning was picking his nose as he walked through the lobby and continued as he stood outside. Very disgusting.
