TripAdvisor Ratings

Clean, welcoming staff, indoor pool and very dog friendly
May 07, 2019

Location is convenient to Des Moines and yet, out of the hustle. Quiet, off the freeway, large grassy areas for pets. Staff is welcoming and helpful. All rooms are accessed indoors. , Convenient elevators and luggage dollies. Pool, wifi, computers in lobby, complimentary breakfast and pets stay free. Rooms are nice, clean quiet, with coffee maker, microwave and mini fridge. The Red Roof Inns have taken over the spot of La Quinta's now that they have become associated with a large chain of hotels. I will be seeking out more Red Roofs for comfortable and safe travels with pets as a single female traveler.

Nice, Clean Hotel
April 19, 2019

The room was clean, smelled fresh. You really couldn't hear any highway noise. Great room for the price! Free breakfast in the morning. We did have a bit of trouble with toilet flushing (just had to hold down the handle). The beds were very comfortable. The pool was nice and warm. Would have been nice if there was a hot tub.

Quiet night in Ames
March 29, 2019

We enjoyed our stay at Red Roof. The room was clean, remodeled and quiet, with comfortable bedding.We could have used another blanket. Breakfast was good and plentiful and was checked on frequently by the management. Pool was very warm. We felt it was a good bargain for the price we paid.

August 15, 2018

On our way to CO. Stopped about midnight and this was the only room available at this exit as all the other hotels were full. We got the last room. I was a little nervous because the Red Roof back in our home town has a very bad reputation and is almost scary. So I was very surprised at how nice this Red Roof was. Looks like it's been remodeled recently. The staff was very nice. The room was clean. Beds very comfortable. Price lower than many of hotels in the area. Shower nice, water hot. They serve breakfast, the usual hotel hot breakfast. We drove down the road to Village Inn so didn't eat here. We would stay here again.
