I spent one night here in late April 2013. I was disappointed to find that it would cost $9 to get a cab to the airport. I did not see this mentioned on the Expedia website nor on http://www.redroof.com/. Travelodge Inn (nearby) has a shuttle and they are upfront that they charge $2 each way. I would have preferred that Red Roof Inn be equally upfront. The airport is only 2 miles away and might be a pleasant walk, but I had a bad leg.
When I arrived early evening, I tried to run a bath to soak my swollen calf, which I had injured on my bike from San Diego. The water was not hot enough. With the hot water full on (no cold) it was barely OK for a shower. I called the lady at the front desk and she expressed surprise as the hotel wing out back (where I was - room 125) had few people. I tried the bath later that night and the next morning- not much better. In fairness, people wanting only a shower (which probably means 99% of the visitors) would probably be OK with the water temperature.
There were no amenities in the room, such as coffee maker, refrigerator or microwave. (I think one can get these if one pays more - I paid $50 total). Coffee is available in the lobby. There was a safe for which one had to pay $1.50 per night. I did not use the outside pool.
The room faced the back woods which was pleasant. It was also clean and quiet.
The next day I walked the 200 yds or so to the other side of the highway to await the bus, which runs about hourly. It normally costs $4.50 but is free for seniors (60+) so I paid nothing. Crossing the highway is a little tricky as there is no pedestrian crossing. But if one waits a watches the traffic patterns, it is fine.
There is a Dennys on the N side and a Subway on the south. Also several good convenience stores, with decaf and regular coffee. With one's own mug, any size qualifies as a refill and costs about $1.
