We stayed at this location for one night to break up an extremely long drive. Chose the Red Roof over several other locations nearby due to it having the higher rating, this meant a slightly higher cost but figured that since the Red Roof's were going through a major nationwide upgrade that it would be reflected in the room's quality. After we were checked in we drove over to our room and tried to get in, however, our keys wouldn't work. So I ran back to the front desk, the clerk re encoded our keys, went back and we were able to get in that time. The new room look is nice, especially compared to the old Red Roof Inns and some of the other low cost motels. The appearance pretty much matched the pictures we had seen online with the exception of lighting. The pictures made it look as if the rooms were brightly lit (even a little card placed inside the room said, brightly lit work area). My guess is that they were going for energy savings and put lower wattage bulbs in everything because even with all of the lights turned on it still seemed very dark in the room. Even one of the lights over the bed had a burned out bulb in it. For the most part the room was very clean, the only dirth/filth I saw was around the edges of the room close to the walls and corners (understandable, its hard to get a vacuum into those without using some sort of attachment). The bed was very comfortable, more so than a more expensive hotel we had stayed at earlier that week and the linens were very soft. My only main complaints is that the shower and toilet are together in a room while the sink is in the main section, this is fine except the toilet and shower leave just enough room to turn around in their and the bathroom door has no lock. I can imagine sitting on the toilet and having someone swing that door open ouch. The other complaint would have to be the TV selection there were only a small handful of channels (many of which had nothing on them). So the long and the short of it is that, I love the new design and the room was mostly clean and comfortable, there were a few minor complaints. The room seemed a little pricey for what you got, if there had been more channels and a little more attention paid to cleaning around the edges I would be more inclined to stay again. However, I would still recommend it to others as for some these gripes may not be that big.
