“Old outside, new inside”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

While this hotel was nothing to look at from the outside, the rooms were updated and very clean. Also the price was extremely reasonable. It is also pet friendly, so make sure to ask for a no-pet room if there are allergies in the family.

Thank you for your nice review of our property. We take pride in our hotel's appearance, both outside and inside. Our hotel was renovated last year, which included fresh paint on the exterior of our classic open exterior chalet style hotel. We are always looking to improve our property and guest's experience. Thank you for staying at our hotel. We look forward to seeing you again.

We found a coupon in the Northeast coupon book at rest area. $59.99 for the night. When the front desk clerk saw me walking with a cane she offered me their handicapped room. It was so nice. Everything was handicapped accessible. Laminate smooth floors, 2 different level peep holes on door, outlets at correct height and not hidden on wall, huge king size bed, big screen TV, microwave, fridge, safe and a huge bathroom with a massive no edge shower with a sprayer and shower head with a built in seat. Also had grab bars everywhere. The staff was so nice. We have found our new hotel when we travel upstate New York!!!

Room Tip: Try the coupons in free book.

From the moment I arrived at the hotel, Kristen provided a service that went beyond her call of duty. She was extremely pleasant, respectful and eager to make my stay a special one. The following day, Jake, front desk, continued the same level of service that I had not encountered in other hotels. The room attendant, a young man by the name of Carlos Velez was so helpful, clean and careful and respectful that I felt like if I was at home. The rest of the staff continued that level service for the remai.der of my stay. Thank you Kristen, Jake and the rest of the staff at the front desk, as well as Carlos and the rest of the house cleaning staff at the hotel. Thank you. I will highly recommend this hotel to family and friends. Excellent work, guys.

We had bad experience with Red Roof Inn years ago, and when we came to Utica I read the reviews on trip advisor and saw that Red Roof Inn had high marks, so we decided to book a room. What a pleasant surprise! Very clean room, comftable bed, it was just right and at a fantastic rate!

Thank you for giving our hotel another try and sharing your review on Tripadvisor. There are many variables involved in ensuring that our guests receive the quality and customer service in which they deserve. Sometimes things can go wrong. But, at the Red Roof Inn, we strive to resolve issues and improve our guests' overall experience. After all, if it wasn't for you, our guest, we would not have the joy to share the best of what Red Roof Inn has to offer. I will be happy to share your review with the rest of the team. We hope you stay again in the near future.

Easy to access for overnight stay. Good location and quick service. Room was simple and clean. It fitted well for our (4 person) purpose to stay overnight near highway when travelling to Niagara. Value for price was excellent.

Much better than we expected! Very clean and comfortable, super helpful staff. We were travelling with our dog, and expected to have to settle for less than nice accommodations. Not so here! We were very pleased, and would stay here again even without the dog!

I usually don't stay at Red Roof Inns. but after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor, we went ahead and booked a night here. The other reviewers were not wrong! The motel was totally full, but the two people at the front desk made us feel very welcome. We had a couple of small issues with the room, but Grant came to the rescue right away, and took care of the issues with the same concern as you would hope the owner himself would have. The room was nicely arranged. Bathroom a bit small, but okay. Very high cleaning standards. As I read a few more reviews after I booked, I realized that it is a pet friendly motel. I was not excited about this, as I love pets, but outdoors. However, there was no trace that any pets had ever been in there. The beds were very comfortable. There was no breakfast, but coffee was available at all hours. Kudos to the owner, management and quality employees!

Room Tip: For those who prefer a pet free room, the front desk told me that MOST of the time people with pets...
