Eleven hour drive with five to go. So we stopped in Troy, IL at the Red Roof Inn. I have not stayed at an RRI since I was a child. The location is right off the highway with a lot of truck stops. I used to live in the area and knew this was a decent location and that I could trust. I was happy there were a lot of nice restaurants to choose from too. Upon entering the hotel, it was very clean and the staff was friendly. The rate was decent compared to the Holiday inn behind this hotel. 40 dollars less. We got a two queen non smoking room and was nice and clean. The main bathroom was nice and spacious, toilet was not right next to the tub which I was happy about! The kids loved the room. Had flat screen tv with great cable and large cable remote. Good channels to choose from. The view is not great, I-55 and trucks to look at, but who needs a view when all you have to do is sleep. We arrived at 10:30, so it was late. They have a nice pool and a breakfast bar. Elevator was good. The only issue I had was in the morning, the cleaning crew were waiting with their carts to use the elevator to go to different levels, that was annoying. My suggestion is that each floor should have a storage area for their carts, as to not disturb guests when they are trying to check out with luggage. Obviously they let the guests go before they attempted to get on the elevator. We had a good nights rest and headed out to Chicago. This location was nice because if you are headed south it's right before you get to St.Louis or if headed north right after you leave StL. I give this hotel a good rating for the price and location. CrackerBarrel next door too.
