TripAdvisor Ratings

Award stay.
February 19, 2018

I stayed here for two nights using my redi awards. This is an average, basic hotel. Not the best Red Roof, but certainly far from the worst. My only complaint was that I found a toilet brush and other supplies on the top floor, told a housekeeper, who said, "so?". Housekeeping is always a challenge, especially in a budget motel. If you like Red Roofs this is an OK place to stay.

Red Roof Inn So. Akron
February 07, 2018

I travel frequently to Akron, OH. I originally choose to stay at the Red Roof Inn because of its convenient location to downtown Akron and its reasonable rates. Since I have been staying here, the staff is very friendly. If I had a problem (which is rare) it is quickly taken care of and without any trouble. The rooms are always comfortable and kept very clean. For these reasons, I would recommend travelers to stay at this location.

I travel quite frequently all over the U.S for work and have recently started staying with Red Roof Inns after years of staying at various Quality Inn locations. I made the switch initially due to the recent jump in prices with Quality but now that I've been searching for a new frequent hotel this Red Roof location has really shown me just what I've been missing out on at an even more affordable price! At checkin I explained my situation to the staff member Angela and she was able to accomodate my needs fairly early in the AM hours before their normal check in time which was great! She also informed me of a discount due to being a AAA member which saved me a couple dollars. I thought that was really great because she took into consideration my issue with the previous inns. Once I checked into my room which was as requested first floor (kudos again!) I'll be honest here, I was immediately surprised in regard to the cleanliness of my room as well as the fresh clean smell. The bed was fresh, floors spotless and plenty of towels for what I needed! I really am pleased. I even spoke to Angela again when grabbing some coffee in the lobby after check in and complimented the property and welcoming atmosphere. Close to everything, helpful staff and a nice clean room. What more could I ask for? I will without a doubt be returning to this location when my work brings me back around and furthermore any other travel destination I will now be sure to give Red Roof a try! Excellent ratings! Great Job!

Best location and the nicest employees!
January 10, 2018

Location is near supermarkets local restaurants and laundry facilities. Simple amenities free coffee and the staff has been great at accommodating any needs I've had since check in. So much that I've decided to stay 2 more weeks Here! The housekeepers and quick and efficient especially Katie. Angela and Alivia at the desk are great employees with wonderful personalities. I often am just hanging out in the room as I am in between houses and they always make me feel welcome and give me great company in the lobby just to get away for a little bit! Michael the current GM is also very friendly and is always available to help as well. I truly am enjoying my stay here and these employees are a great asset to the red roof! Thanks guys!

Paying Customer
January 06, 2018

This place sucks! Had to wait to get my door blow dryed bc they don’t have the proper freaking doors! This is very inconvenient & inconsiderate when it comes to paying customers. Get it together!!!!!!!!!!! If I could give a rate of -0 I would.
