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.
