“Not one of Red Roof's better hotels”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

I travel typically twice a month year round, and unless I'm going somewhere that doesn't have one, I usually stay at Red Roof. This particular Red Roof isn't quite as nice as most of the Red Roofs I encounter. The bathroom is too small, tv is outdated (most now have flat screen tvs), one of the lights is burnt out, and the bed is hard and uncomfortable. Also, there are only 19 tv stations to choose from... 9 of which I consider filler garbage- sports and news. 1 is cartoons. That leaves me only 9 stations to try to find something to watch on. During the usual news hours fox, abc, nbc, and cbs are also useless. Internet at times is also exceedingly slow. Also, the entrance to their parking lot desperately needs to be repaired! It is rough, and pot holes are near impossible to avoid.

Room Tip: Tip: Don't expect much at this Red Roof.

We only needed a room to stay the night, about 10 hours. After booking, I dreaded checking in, as reviews caused me real concern. Well, our stay was just fine. We were off I 70, parked and at the desk in one minute. Front desk clerk very pleasant. We stayed in Room 107. Hallway smelled of stale smoke, but room did not. Carpet seemed new. Toilet, sink, shower all in good working condition. Furniture was fine; huge desk, microwave, fridge. Linens a bit worn, but clean. Hard mattress, six pillows per bed. Soap, no other toiletries. Coffee maker, no coffee cups. Used water cup. Quiet all night. Breakfast pretty sad, no milk for cereal...left, to eat somewhere else. Maybe the place changes with summer racetrack crowd, but for a quick, cheap stop, hotel was more than satisfactory.

Stayed February 2013, travelled with family

The room was disgusting! As soon as we arrived we found a cockroach on the lap. The towels were stained and filthy and I saw pubes in the bed. We left and went to anther hotel. If you value a sanitary environment at all.. Run for your lives!!!!

those of you who pull in here with the thoughts of the usual red roof quality....forget it. this one is probably the worst one i have EVER stayed in and i have called red roof customer relations regarding this site. my husband, who usually isn't as picky as me has determined we will never stay there again. let's see, where to start...large white painted patches on the ummmmmm...ecru walls in both the hallways and rooms. the property is trashy. room 203 has a days inn shower curtain. there is an obvious rust problem in the water that could be solved using red out from wal-mart. the linens are all dingy. there are 4 settings on the shower head......same water pattern on all four settings. one out of the five pillows on the bed was acceptable. no milk or yogurt for breakfast. the o.j. was waaaay over-diluted. the rock hard mini donettes were chocolate covered and obviously out of the freezer on the first day. the remaining crumbs from the package were all that were there the second day. there were a couple of pieces of bread and a small amount of cereal...but no milk. the hallway carpeting is filthy and full of holes. the furniture upholstery is disgusting. no turntable in the microwave. our visit was the third time the key card holder had been used (and the last). the t.v. station guide was absolutely disgusting AND incorrect. only one local station (NBC). no iron or ironing board. no extra toilet tissue. curtain liners are disgusting with the cracks/flakes on the once white rubber lining patched with pieces of black electricians tape. yes, it was a smoking room, but the stench was really bad......not quite so much after i used my fabreze spray on it. phone didn't work. security door lock into building nonfunctional. no screens or safety locks on our window. oh yeah....nice paved parking lot. sooooooooo........why did we stay two days you ask? we were heading home from PA, my husband wasn't feeling well, so we stopped, expecting the usual red roof quality. he determined that we would leave the next morning but felt too unwell to do so (we travel together in separate vehicles).

two couples stayed here for 4 days, one in the first floor, the other in 214. After leaving the ones in 214 were infected with bed bugs. After contacting the hotel they denied there was any problem in that room. After contacting Red Roof Corp they played good cop/bad cop and kept pushing things off. Nothing was done and they now do not even return phone calls. We just wanted the cost of that specific room stay to be refunded and the cost for replacing two suitcases. Beware of this Red Roof location.

Room Tip: If you must stay insist on staying on the first floor. Look carefully for bed bug droppings.

This Red Roof features interior stairways, a continental breakfast, and a public computer workstation in the lobby. The lobby had several chairs for guests to relax in, too. The breakfast was very minimalist. There were a few basic cereals, some very small doughnuts and beverages. (The orange juice tasted like the old Tang of astronaut days!) The standard Red Roof coffee machine was out of order the two days I was there. Also, no phones in guest rooms worked. Nothing was said about this when I checked in so I trekked back downstairs to find out if it was just my room or motel-wide. I was told a storm had knocked them out earlier in the week, but I could use the one in the lobby next to the computer. This was interesting since normally it's all or nothing with phone systems. So, no phone for the weekend. Maybe if one needed a wake-up call, they would have banged on the door? The room itself was clean, and the bed was good. I had the Superior King, and while there was a table with two chairs, the usual lounge chair was absent. Fortunately, the computer chair was comfortable. The computer workstation was far superior to the usual one found at Red Roofs. The access drive leading to the Red Roof's parking lot has basically disintegrated, but the parking lot itself was well-maintained. (Probably the access road is not their responsibility.) So, although there were a few inconveniences, I would stay again without hesitation. Plenty of grass for pet relief, too.

Firstly, the staff has been so nice, and accommodating. For the price it's reasonable. I only have 2 complaints- 1. its a non-smoking hotel, and some one was obviously smoking pot. Our room stunk of it terribly. 2. The water is undrinkable. Thankfully was traveling with bottled water, but I didn't want to brush my teeth with the tap water.
