Red Roof Inn Hiring


Click here to learn about Red Roof Inn.

Once upon a time, an entrepreneur named James R. Trueman had a vision for a hotel chain that was unlike any other. Wanting to provide a clean, comfortable room at a fair price, Mr. Trueman opened his first hotel on February 20 1973 in Grove City, Ohio with rooms at an unprecedented $8.50 a night. As a fan of a well-prepared steak, Mr. Trueman named his hotel after the Red Roof Tavern, a steakhouse in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and from there the Red Roof Inn experience began.

Throughout the years, Red Roof continued to enhance the guest’s experience. In 1980, Red Roof introduced a toll-free reservation system to provide guests with an easy means to make reservation. In 1982, the RediCard loyalty program was launched to reward repeat guests. And by 1984, Red Roof implemented a computerized property management system which was the first in the economy lodging segment. By the 90s, Red Roof had expanded into new markets, began welcoming franchise partners and was on course to turn every traveler and four-legged furry friend into a Red Roof fan.

Travel fast forward to the 21st story and Red Roof has become a recognized leader in delivering a comfortable affordable choice for lodging. With 400 locations and growing, guests repeatedly rave on social media outlets such as TripAdvsor, voting Red Roof #1 in the economy segment in 2013. In 2014 Red Roof introduced Red Roof Plus+, creating a new premium room type with added hotel features and enhanced service to dazzle travelers young and old.  Come add a chapter to our continuing story.
