“Watch out for the remote”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

I usually stay at chain hotels that are indoor entrance. For a one night stay, it was fine. Cleanliness wasn't up to other hotels I have stayed at in the past. Grease-like substance on remote sealed the deal. There was a hand print on the window that I think may have been the same hand that touched the remote! Didn't report as the damage had been done. No TV watching for me! There are other hotels in the area that are a more pleasant stay than here. I will not stay here again.

Room Tip: Approach remote with caution!

Thank you for your review. Sorry that your experience at our property wasn't upto your expectation. I will try more harder to make sure these issues are addressed and taken care of.

Just stayed at an awesome RRI in Indiana so I thought we would have the same experience in Bloomington.... nope. Hotel in need of care, doors opened to exterior... did not feel safe in this area.
I would not chose this when so many other choices exist in the area.

Dear Guest

I am pleased to hear you had a great experience with another Red Roof Inn, I wish our accommodations would have provided you with the same comments. I apologize that you did not feel comfortable at our inn with the exterior corridors. I would like to know more about what you meant by “in need of care”. Please feel free to contact me directly at the inn to discuss. Once again thanks for your comments to help us improve for our future guests.

We were particularly impressed with a staff member who provided directions to a restaurant and a coupon for $4 off our check. Room was clean and price was reasonable.

Very basic room. It was clean and priced reasonably. AC unit was a bit loud.

I was a little leary of the Red Roof Inn considering with an online code I only paid around $40 for a night in this hotel. And honestly it was just fine. Room was a little small but it was clean and had free internet access. No problems. There was a very simple breakfast in the morning that consisted of a few types of cereal, oatmeal, bagels, bread, juice, and coffee.

We were so pleased with our recent stay at Red Roof Inn that we are switching hotels from where we normally stay while in Bloomington. Everything was very good for the price we paid. The contintental breakfast was very good as well. Our only dislike was the AC had no control for the direction of the air flow.

Room Tip: Second floor requires use of stairs. East side rooms get early morning sun.
