Thank you Susan, graveyard shift front desk..

Thanks for your excellent customer service and making sure I had everything I needed. You go above and beyond! The time you spent making sure I had a room secured after I left the hospital was greatly appreciated. 5 stars :-)

Not terrible
July 14, 2018

We were looking for an inexpensive place to spend the night to break up a long road trip. Traveling as a woman with a child, I’m always a little leery of motels but don’t want to spend too much just to sleep for a few hours. This red roof inn felt a little lower end than others but it did the job. Some of the guests looked a bit concerning but most were families. There was a police car parked across the street for hours which both concerned and comforted me. They had cable, a bed and AC but not much else. For $52 - it wasn’t terrible.

Decent Place to Stay
July 09, 2018

Very basic Hotel. Some rooms do not have coffee makers. No free continental breakfast which seems common in this price range. Staff was polite. Room was clean. Would stay again because the price is right at under $60/night.

This hotel needs to be updated and improved.

The price was right for a night here and service was fine, however this hotel needs to be upgraded and improved. The bed comforter had burn holes in it. The room was dark and dingy. The overall appearance was aged and cheesy.

We had a standard, 2full bed, upstairs room. Not a bad price for summer season. There is an elevator but it is stiflingly hot. I couldnt breathe! We took the stairs most of the time. There were bratty kids throwing footballs outside without parents watching and and they hit the car so we moved it so it wouldnt get hit again. There was a guy yelling at a girl in the parking lot. I did tell management about that one, and she went down there. There were kids playing outside at 2am kicking balls against the doors. There is no fridge or microwave in the room. I asked about that, they said its only in the king rooms. If im paying, why dont i have one? So everything sat in the sink in ice. This place is close to a lot of restaurants, both sit down and fast food. Theres a sonic within 5 minutes where you can eat til like 2am. The beds are comfortable enough. Wish there was more pillows cause they are super flat. There is a snack machine and a pop machine. I didnt eat the breakfast so i cant comment on that. And the bathroom is basically a closet. Hope youre not claustrophobic. Better leave the door open. All in all, while not unbearable it wasnt the most pleasant, so we probably wont stay at this one again.
