Stayed here with my dog because it was the only pet friendly hotel in the area that didnt charge $50+ for a pet fee. I trusted the reviews on trip advisor and booked from the road so i didnt have time to research thorughly. But i wish i had stayed someplace else. To start, its not the best area, and it looks like a shabby run down motel. The rooms are small, no fridge, no micro, and the worst was the loud construction they had going on all day. It said they stop at 5 pm but they went well into 6pm with the noise. I felt like a prisoner in the room because there were men working directly outside my door. The drilling and jackhammering was so loud i thought they were going to drill right through the wall and into my room. I feel like they should have mentioned this before i booked the room. The large windows face the outside walkway so people can see right in. This means you have to keep it closed all the time so you end up without any natural light. My dog was freeked out with all the noise amd workers outside our door. They left buckets and equipment outside my door which made it weird and awkward everytime i had to enter and leave my room. The grounds are small with only a small grassy area for dog walks, they do offer bags but it looks like no one picks up here. There is no restaurant on site, and no breakfast. I didnt trust to walk barefoot on the carpet and instead wore flip flops. They only give you 3 small pillows the size of cotton balls, and i also decided to sleep in long sleeve and long pants. It just didnt seem clean enough not to --granted this is my first time at a red roof inn, and i know the construction was a huge factor in me not liking this place, however i could only see someone stayng here as a quick one nght sleepover and then get back on the road. Definately not a family place, dfinately not a vacation. Seems dangerous and run down. I only left the room once to get food - plenty of chain restaurants nearby. Also seems overpriced at $99 with tax, when i paid that much at a Hampton Inn that also took dogs and was like the ritz compared to this. Definately more like a $50 a nite place.
