TripAdvisor Ratings

WARNING! Worst hotel in the area.
October 11, 2018

Worst hotel we've ever seen. Ever. Worst. Ever. Live bugs, dead bugs. Dead bugs smeared on the wall, The front desk clerk said "Well - you get what you pay for." We didn't stay a single night of a two night reservation after seeing the room. The manager, Jeff refuses to refund both nights, furthermore cementing his status as a scam artist. I feel like it should be illegal to do this to us, much like the "defrauding an innkeeper" law. It was obvious there was prostitution going on during just the short time we were there. When we stepped on the bathroom floor, water came up from underneath. I hate this place and their business practices, and the staff. DO NO STAY HERE!

Stay Away
September 13, 2018

This is the worst hotel experience I have ever had. We checked in at 4:00 and the woman looked around confused whether or not they had a clean room. We assumed everything was fine once she typed a bit on the computer and handed us keys. The room smelled as if it was cleaned with porter potty water. We had meetings, so left and hoped it would go away. We returned later and the smell was still there. We had no cups, ice holder and an ac that barely worked. We went to sleep only to be woken up by the strong smell of ciggarettes. Apparently the smoking area was right outside our room and was being blown into our room all night long. We barely slept and got up early to leave. Neither of us showered as there was hair all through the tub and only one towel. I think that the room wasn't even cleaned based on our experience. We were going to talk to the front desk when we were leaving, but he was busy smoking outside, so we just left that place and will never go to another Red Roof Inn again, which is unfortunate since they have never let us down before. I never write reviews, but I felt obligated to so no one else would have to endure this place.

I stay at the red roof in town for entertainment at the end arena, upon check-in they were extremely busy but the Gentlemen at the desk his name is Stephan he was very professional and knowledgeable about the surrounding areas. They didn't have a business center but he helped me print out my tickets for the concert. The room was awesome smelled wonderful ac worked fine staff even gave me a late check out. At noon like I said great stay Great staff will stay again.

Upon check in we discovered no towels in the room. Following morning discovered outlet in the bathroom doesn’t work, requested an iron and ironing board, they were all loaned out. Second night returned to room, room had not been serviced. Called front desk the young man acted as if he could care less. Spoke with lady when checking out, she acted like it wasn’t her problem. Website: breakfast included, never saw it. We travel to this area a lot, we not be returning.
