"Never Again"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
My email to corporate: To Whom it May Concern, I wish to inform you this was the worst hotel/motel experience I have ever had. Please see attached photos. I booked through the Red Roof phone number I found online. I had to take my daughter and granddaughter to the airport very early in the morning and needed to be close to the airport as I live quite a distance away. I found a room online for $107 per night. The agent informed me she only saw a room for $128 plus tax and fees. I agreed to book through your website as opposed to booking.com in spite of the price increase. I informed the agent we were three people staying in the room and requested two beds. When we arrived after a great deal of car travel, I was greeted by a lovely woman that was so overworked and overwhelmed. Accolades to this lovely woman, she was doing a fantastic job in spite of everything! She checked us in and we went to our room. Upon entering I discovered one king sized bed. My daughter, after using the bathroom, discovered there was no soap to properly cleanse her hands. She also wanted a shower and there was no shampoo and towels for only one person. I went to the front desk and advised we were too exhausted to move to another room although I booked for two beds, no towels or soap or shampoo. She apologized immediately and gave me some hand towels, washcloths, soap, shampoo and body lotion. She apologized for not having bath towels and explained that housekeeping would deliver them. I went back to the room and my daughter pointed out the chair that was in the desk area. It was covered in mold! (see attached photos) She returned it to the front office. There were dead bugs in the room (see attached photos) the floors were sticky and I had to strip and remake the bed to ensure there were no parasites. Your wonderful front desk employee, in the midst of putting out many proverbial fires, ended up delivering the bath towels, where was housekeeping? While $175 may not be a lot to some people, I am recovering from cancer and have a great deal of medical expenses. This was supposed to be a special last night together for my family and me. It most certainly was not and I am requesting a refund.… I have heard nothing from management!

Overall Score5.0/ 5
The people at the desk were wonderful. They really did everything to accommodate us Unfortunately, my husband got sick and we could not complete our stay. The room was great. The staff was so friendly and understanding. We're back in SC after a day at the airport. Because of our circumstances, we're grateful to be home but also very grateful for our experience at Red Roof. Thank you very much. Best wishes, Martha Obrien.

"Unacceptable"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
The room opened to the outside. Not safe for a single woman. People standing around outside made me nervous. When I went to bed, I checked the mattress for bugs. I did not find bugs, but a disgusting stain on the mattress. And on one of the pillow cases, I saw several drops of old blood. That is unacceptable!
