“Good enough!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

Happily found a clean room after a long day in the car, I would stop here again! No restaurants close by, eat before you get here. Everything is north in Petersburg! Although the desk clerk said there is a Chinese place that would deliver here.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Booked this room through priceline. Im not really sure why priceline considers this a 2 star. It should be a 1 star hotel, thats what it felt like. The living area seemed clean, the bathroom could have used a good cleaning, hair on the floor. TV worked, front desk was nice, a few questionable guests staying close by....Its close to 95 so if you need a place to rest your head, i guess this place is okay. Bed was comfy, except that there was no fitted sheet on the matress, just a regular sheet. So needless to say I woke up sleeping on a dirty matress. No coffee maker in the room, but had a fridge and microwave. All in all, it was okay, but shouldnt be advertised as a 2 star hotel, its more like a 1 star motel.

Pricelining a 2 star hotel is always risky - but usually if the hotel is new it's okay. This one, thought, not new, was really better than okay. Clean, comfortable beds, decent shower . . .and very affordable. Staff was beyond friendly and helpful . . .it was a great stop for the night. Breakfast was substandard - but free toast and coffee is still free.

It's a bit far away from downtown Petersburg but the staff is friendly and the hotel room I stayed in wss clean enough.

Don't believe the negative reviews. The hotel is a good value for what it is - chain motel.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

The pro: The front desk personnel and manager were nice and accommodating when we asked to cancel our reservation after viewing our room.
The cons: The room was dingy, threadbare everything, moldy smell, no coffee maker, empty pool. We thought the place was boarded up as we approached. We passed a parked car filled with smoke and young men on the dead-end road leading to the property. All we could think was, if we were running from the law this is where we'd stay.

Stayed with dogs which we had to paid extra for. Average property, clean, free coffee and good wifi. Friendly staff, had dog statue on counter with a sign they were pet friendly but charged. It was raining so we stopped, Ref Roof Inn doesn't charge extra for pets, but we were in heavy rain so we paid

We stopped overnight here on our way to Florida. Spacious clean room where everything worked. Friendly, helpful staff. Treed, quiet location, but close enough to I-95. No restaurant but microwave and refrigerator in the room so who cares?
