Listen, if you need a place to sleep that's way cheaper than anyone else close, this is it.
Don't expect breakfast, with the money you saved you can eat at Burger King and still be ahead.
The bed was clean, the room needed updating but it was clean too. Smelled like smoke a little but my wife had some perfume that solved that right away.
The lot is well lit and the area didn't seem unsafe.
You wouldn't take your mom here but it's a good place to sleep and leave the next morning.

Trash behind the table next to bed (see pic) and the outside stairway. Bathroom counter was dirty. The room was comfortable and the price and the neighborhood are good.
Need 200 characters to submit my review? Stupid policy

This Red Roof Inn is in an industrial section of Woodbury that is dark and very unsafe. Front desk staff was not friendly, nor helpful. Our room was disgusting. The wallpaper was peeling in places, there were gang symbols on the wall, the air conditioner did not work on a hot July night, the sheets were filthy, the toilet was filthy and stained, the bathtub was stained and not clean, the bathroom floor was filthy, the chairs in the room were stained and disgusting, there was what appeared to be a spot of blood on one wall. We slept on top of the covers. If I had not paid in advance for the room I would have left immediately. In the morning, while drying my hair, it blew a fuse in our room and we had no electricity to our room. It took 15 minutes for them to turn the electricity back on. And to top it all off, the door to the outside appeared as if it had been broken into multiple times with a crowbar from all the missing paint around the locks! Never again. We booked through Hotels.com and had pre-paid so we were out our money.

Old facility with exterior doors, no elevator and rooms in need of an update. Red Roof refused to accept the website rate and booking online after midnight is not possible. Front desk staff was friendly but age, location and security concerns caused us to choose another hotel for the second night.

Room Tip: Select another hotel.

We book that hotel rm. For four nites. We finally made it to.mn after the ling drive. Got to the hotel and and went to check in. Lobby carpet was so nasty. Tape on lobby phone. Cigerette butts were everywhere. Got n the room n it was a complete dump. We check out the next day. Did not sleep that nite for fear of bugs. The clerk was kind enough to tell expeian to give us a refund.The room look like the room from the 70's. It was not clean and awlful!!!! Across the street is a bar. Refunds are at the hotel's descrection. I know we were not getting a palace, but i didn' t expect a dump. They should be made to up- date that hotel.The building is sitting in a business area. It looks good from the street and that's it.

I had a wonderful time here, the manger Kevin was very very nice and welcoming , the hotel is very close to stores and shops and you don't need a car to get to them, they are in walking distance and there's a restraint right next to the hotel . the house keepers were very nice especially Gretchen and they cleaned my room everyday , I had a very good stay here and I would come black here and I would recommend this hotel to others :D
