"Very nice, quiet hotel with Awesome Pillows!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Our room was clean and the staff was very helpful. The beds were comfy and the pillows were awesome! The road construction made it difficult but the hotel cant help that. The drive up to your door made it very easy to unload.

"Bad"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Took 30 mins to find out how to get into the parking lot. Had to drive by it three times and get back on the highway to get into the parking lot. There was water damage in the bathroom. The front door was crooked, I'm surprised the door even shut. The key card didn't work, so my husband had to walk around the building to get a new one. I eneded up getting locked out the following morning because the new key they gave us wasn't working at 530am. We had to put a $100 deposit down on the room since we used a card. (Which is understandable) when I went to go check out. The lady at the front desk didn't seem happy I was looking for our $100 back. We were looking for a place to rest our heads, that's what we got. If you prefer fancy, definitely not this place. I am not picky about staying in a hotel, especially since we are just sleeping there. But we will never go back there again.

"Terrible"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I booked a room for five occupants when I arrived was told red roof does not accommodate that many and was turned away, now I'm told I'm still going to be charged, bad business if you ask me.
