“OK for most items - wifi doesn't work”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

We stayed at the Red Roof Inn in Cedar Rapids for 3 days, as we were taking our daughter to college in Iowa. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The rooms were OK, but they don't have closets, so no place to hang clothes. We stayed on the third floor, west side, and did not notice any highway noise from I-380. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There is no breakfast to speak of - just slices of bread, a toaster, and coffee. Use the Perkins across the road. The pool was nice in the August heat. The air conditioning worked just fine. The hotel is being renovated (as of August 2013), so there are workers painting and improving the hotel. The main reason I don't rate the hotel higher is their wi-fi doesn't work, either in the rooms or in the lobby. When I asked the staff about it, the manager brought out her laptop and showed me that it worked, on her laptop. My laptop has BlueCoat security, which cannot get past their wi-fi access point. I wanted to watch Netflix in the room, and I desperately needed to order auto parts for my other daughter in New York. No dice on the wi-fi. So I went next door to the Economy Inn and Suites, and their staff let me use their wi-fi even though I was not a guest! My laptop worked just fine in the Economy Inn lobby.

Room Tip: Stay on the west side, away from the I-380 highway.

I have just spent four nights staying at this hotel. It was an excellent choice for me. The staff were very friendly, courteous and helpful and right a way I felt welcome. Those at the reception were extremely helpful and were prepared to offer help in all manner of things no matter how trivial. My room was spacious and comfortable and meticulously cleaned every day. The bathroom was spacious and by far the biggest I have seen in any hotel. The breakfast was certainly adequate as a good start for the day. The hotel is well situated having east access to Interstate 380 and there are plenty of good eating establishments within a short walking distance. Right next door to the hotel is Casey's General Store with a filling station for the car. I would certainly recommend this hotel to any visitor and if I am ever in the vicinity again it will be my first choice

Amazing hotel and awesome staff. Miss Cheryl and her staff go above and beyond. I have stayed at other hotels and this red roof is the best. Pleasant and efficient check in process. I travel with pets and always feel welcome from the moment I walk in to the lobby. Great jump start to my day with the free continental breakfast offered. The newly upgraded rooms are beautiful. Beds are so very comfortable. Amazing value at a budget friendly price. Close to restaurants. Day or night the staff is there if you need them. Always greeted with a smile.

Friendly front staff especially Sheryl's smile and Lynn's helpfulness in finding my room. Thanks and I will definitely come back! Location is superb and staff very helpful in suggesting places to eat. The pool was sparkling clean and very inviting on a hot summer's day. I had a good rest and would definitely come back in the future, I highly recommend this Inn and the price's you just can't beat compared to the surrounding places to stay this is worth every penny.
