"Horrible, will never stay in this one again!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We had booked this room through the Red Roof app after not being able to find the local phone #. When we got to the room, there was no microwave or refrigerator. They said it had to be requested and we would be charged for it. Really? They said it was because I booked online. No one asked me if I wanted them, they are usually in every room. When the sheets on the bed were pulled back, they were dirty. They did come and change them. We have stayed at Red Roof Inns many times and not had any problems, this was horrible. Nasty and dirty and so were the people running it. If I call the number in my app to book a room, why is it any different than calling the hotel directly? If they are under the Red Roof, it should be the same.

Room small, no coffee in room and coffee in reception area was awful. No breakfast. Did not receive bottle of water that goes with redi club. Was totally disappointed in this hotel. Did not get a receipt when we checked out. Was told because we booked thru a booking company. So I would need to request in from them. That did not happen the week before. I booked the same way and I got my statement when I left. Sorry won’t stay there again.

"Average Place"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We needed an inexpensive place to sleep and knew this was a two star hotel so did not have high expectations. However, we did not expect a broken bottom drawer in the unit in the room nor holes in the bedding. On the plus side, the staff was pleasant and brought towels quickly when we called to request some since there was only one set in our room.
