“Still a good value”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

I stayed three nights in July. I arrived later than anticipated due to a change in plans brought on by work. My room was ready and waiting for me.

The exterior has not been updated on the "front" (east) side of the building as is desperately needed and has been for a couple of years now. The door was primer grey, and the room number not affixed properly

However, the inside, which is what counts for me, was in fine shape. I give housekeeping an A for thoroughness and attention to detail. I could not find any mildew or dirt anywhere in the room. There is a small problem with the baseboard coming loose, but it is just plastic adhered to the wall. The bed and linens clean, but some might find the deb abd pillows a bit too firm. YMMV. Water pressure was good, and hot water was quickly delivered to the faucets and abundant. I likes the shower head, but others mght find it a bit plain. The work area was ample enough for my laptop and paperwork. The LCD HDTV worked well. I did not use the microwave this time, but the refrigerator delivered very cold drinks.

Perhaps the biggest advantage for this property is its location. Mountain Jack's Steakhouse and The Olive Garden are next door, and Wal-mart is behind it. There are numerous other restaurants and serives including gas within a quarter mile. Access to I-65 is easy and should take less than five minutes from turning on the engine to doing 70 mph.

The other big plus for red Roof Inns as a whole is value. I get a good room for a very reasonable price by today's pricing.

Overall, if you can live with a few largely cosmetic problems, this is a great place to stay.

Some aspects of the exterior still look like a tired Red Roof, but the room felt very fresh. Bed was very comfortable, room was spotless. Iron & ironing board. Pantene shampoo! Make your own waffles were tasty. Otherwise the breakfast was basic & the breakfast room has only 3 tables. Friendly staff. Would stay again.

Red Roof Inns are generally not high end staying and this was no exception, but it was a cut above most Red Roof Inns. The staff was very efficient and knowledgeable, and the room was clean and had everything we needed. Many people were having a lot of fun there, and we met some outside the room. It was nice to have a sparse breakfast offered, though I would suggest that the coffee should have two or three carafes as the coffee was out the two times I went with just one carafe in use. We just needed a place to stay on our way home, and we weren't there for long - this motel was perfect for our needs.

Room Tip: I don't think there is any reason to select one room over another at this location. If you don...

Stayed here on first day before new deployment. Was so pleased with hotel and price I will stay here for the next 6 mths. On a scale of 1 - 10 will give this one a 9. Very quiet hotel - a good thing. Very fast internet.

The staff at Red Roof Inn Lafayette made our experience a very positive one. They were very friendly. The room was nice too. It was so nice to be able to bring our cat and not have any worries at this pet-friendly motel. We would definitely come back.

We could not have asked for more for the price. Easy access from the interstate , safe part of town, convenient to restaurants and Walmart, bed and pillows were comfortable and our room was clean and nice. Breakfast was typical for a continental breakfast. We would definitely stay again.

Were to start hummm.... The roof was falling in before I even got in the door . The room had blood stains, pubic hair and fingernail clipping on the sheets. The mattress was pee stained and had little black dots in the corners (bed bugs) ... The head board had gum stuck to it . the wall in the bathroom was unfinished . soap dish unclean and nasty . Not to mention the boogers stuck to the bathroom wall and that's not all the dust bunny's were and inch thick all the way around the floor and I needed a gas mask when I walked in the room . Wish I could bottle the smell and tag the nation with it . If you don't believe me I have pics .. TRAVELERS BE WERE ... I can't ever give this place a rating I should give them a match and some gas .

Greetings traveler. I see you've written quite a colorful review here. It makes for an entertaining read! I'm just having a hard time believing it was written about our hotel. Anything as bad as you describe would've surely been discovered during routine maintenance, housekeeping, and pest inspections, but nothing like this has been found. Were you otherwise angered somehow while you were with us? I regret that we didn't have a chance to discus any other issues you may have had while you were here. If you would like to contact us directly, we would be happy to try and assist you further.


Thank you,
