The hotel was conveniently located right off I-10 and was priced well, only slightly more expensive than Motel 6. I have stayed at other Red Roof Inns before.
The room was clean but I noticed the drywall was crumbling in a few areas like around the HVAC unit on the wall. The bathroom was also clean though the chrome of the shower fixtures had considerable hard water deposits. The bed was comfortable but the furnishings were outdated and worn, and look like the ones from my college dorm room, way back in the 1980s. Come on, Motel 6 has nicer furniture than this.
These are minor issues, but the reason I am not recommending this hotel is because I didn't get much sleep. The noise didn't come from within, but from its surroundings. Its proximity to I-10 made it easy to find, but also exposed you to traffic noise (which is still considerable even in the middle of the night).
But the worst part was the trains. There is a major freight line just across the freeway from the hotel, and I was bombarded all night long by the train engineers blowing the whistle.
So unless you are hard of hearing like my 83 year old father, or can sleep through anything, I simply cannot recommend this hotel. The whole point of a hotel is to get a good night's rest, and I didn't get that.More
