TripAdvisor Ratings

Very nice staff and great rates.
June 27, 2017

I had not been back to this motel in almost 15 years. As a boy it was a 'Ramada Inn, and has changed ownership several times since. Red Roof Inn offered very reasonable rates, especially for late June. The employees were very nice and helpful. Even walking by a door with my arms full, a girl ran over to catch the door for me. Every employee I encountered was friendly and helpful. The motel itself is older and is scheduled for some remodeling to my knowledge. Great rates and childhood nostalgia brought me back. After breakfast I walked over to the indoor pool where my father taught me to swim about 36 years ago. The indoor pool and spa looked well kept. It was nice the motel offers a breakfast. Unfortunately the waffle machine was having problems that particular morning. Some improvements needed as far as breakfast goes. All and all, Red Roof Inn offers one of the best rates for what they offer and I can't complain. I've stayed at a few near by places and paid more for less. I rather enjoyed the old school 70's/80's feel of an older motel.

Highway 101 Pitstop
June 23, 2017

Was really nervous about staying somewhere that cost less than $65 per night. That said, the place wasn't as bad as expected, there was no smell of marijuana, as many of the reviews stated, and the room was fairly large, clean, and staff was friendly. The sink did not drain very well and the toilet had issues re-filling with water, but overall it was to be expected for the price. The pool appeared decent from a distance, but we didn't use it. Breakfast included waffles, donuts, juice, cereal, etc. Also surprising for the price. I did attempt to make a waffle and had to toss it though because the batter seemed watered down and it didn't set properly. . .just couldn't stomach it. Was also disappointed that the room did not have a mini fridge and was not available upon request. Fridges are available with the price and inconvenience of a room upgrade. Overall, it was mediocre and we'd probably stay here again if traveling highway 101. Free wifi was available, but the connection was extremely slow and made it impossible to download anything from the cloud.

Never again!

Stayed here on our way to Oregon. All I can say is gross! It was the longest 6 hours of sleep I had. The room felt dirty, the bathroom was dirty, and the continental breakfast was questionable. The coffee was good, that's it!

Gross and scary, it look as if there were people that lived here, during the night there was some partying of activity in the parking lot out side our window. Dogs allowed but there was only a over grown yard for Fido and no attempt by anyone to clean up after their dogs. The bed mattresses were stained and quite old, and bedding stained as well, we asked for extra pillows and it was taken from another room. We ask for laundry facilities and was referred to the public Laundromat across the street where the house keepers do Red Roofs Inns laundry. It was cleaner than our room. Key card machine stopped working after our arrival so the quests that came later had to be let into their rooms by the front desk master key.

Smelled like Marijuana
May 16, 2017

Terrible place, got a headache from people smoking pot in the rooms. We complained to the front desk, they did nothing for us. We contacted corporate and they appologised and sent us a free night stay, so we tried the one in Portland Oregon and it was just as bad, the pot smell was horrible, so we went to the front desk, told the guy we were not staying and drove all the way back home. We spent over 12 hours on the road that day. We will never ever stay at a Red Roof Inn again, I would rather pay triple the rate to stay anywhere else. Freaking pot smokers dont understand smoke free means no cigarettes and no pot smoke!!!
