"I had a wonderful stay at the Red Roof in Athens, AL. The staff was helpful from the start and made my stay easy and pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and clean with lots of space- the full refrigerator was great to have. I look forward to staying at the Red Roof again the next time I am in the area!"
