TripAdvisor Ratings

Love This Place!
October 06, 2019

Very good location, GREAT staff, and extremely comfortable beds. I use the little workout room, which is perfectly adequate for a treadmill 5K in front of a flatscreen TV. I even like their little packets of Nescafe decaf coffee crystals, which, when mixed with the regular brewed coffee, makes for just the right viscosity level. This RRI motel is my favorite landing place for DeKalb-related business.

Decent to good
August 27, 2019

Stayed overnight on a trip from MN to IL. Red Roof was a nice little motel. Had no problem with sleep, rooms were quite and bed nice. Very good value and easy location just outside Dekalb. Would be great if visiting university. Staff friendly and reception check in quick. Large pool, although didn't go in Perfectly fine for an overnight stay

Basic lodging at a good price
August 06, 2019

Perfect if you are just looking for a clean place at a good price. I was in the unit right next to Lincoln Highway but was not disturbed by road noise at night. Staff polite and attentive. Suburban strip-type restauants close by.

Awesome Manager
August 05, 2019

Nicest Hotel Manager (Vicky Torres) that I’ve ever dealt with and very nice, clean room! We got in very late at night and left early in the morning so didn’t have a chance to look around the area so cannot comment on that.

affordable and safe place to stay
August 04, 2019

Since I have home renovations going on to make home physical disability accessible I am staying a month in Redroof Inn. My first week here was very comfortable. It is a safe place and convenient with many places to eat around the Inn. The room is cleaned properly on a daily basis. I just love Jessica who takes care of my room. Staff are very friendly, helpful, and responsive to your issues or requests. The Inn also has an outdoor pool that families can enjoy. Northern Illinois University is also walking distance from the motel so people coming for events or to visit their kids at the uni can conveniently stay here. I never hear any noise and sleep comfortably -- I note this since some reviewers complain of the train and traffic noise . For a week I had very sound sleep. The inn also has disability accessible room, especially the bathroom--another feature here that I enjoy. Rooms do not have a fridge but they do have a coffee maker with coffee and tea supplies. So if you want an affordable place to stay in DeKalb, that is conveniently located, safe and clean, consider Red Roof Inn and Suites.
