Better than most budget hotels
October 23, 2017

Me n my girlfriend stayed here for a night the front desk clerk was very nice, polite, and quick. The room was nice and clean. Bed was really hard. Besides the bed it was a pretty nice room. Not the best hotel but not terrible.

Amazing breakfast.

I had seen the previous review and was appalled at it. The breakfast host Corrie went out of his way for us. Never mentioned anything bout a tip. He got food for my elderly father and even made sure our coffee was hot. We had a bad time with front who stay on their phone the whole time. So thank you Corrie. You made us a regular there. You do a great job

Old and it shows

Up for the UTK game and the family weekend. Ok, so the staff was friendly, but walking down the hall towards the room was the first clue. Dirty carpets, stained walls and celling tiles, maybe from a roof leak, old paint. Yes the place is very dated. The room appeared to be clean, fresh bedding but the matress was as hard as a rock. They did have a microwave and small fridge in the room and we had a good view of the parking lot lol.

Not great

I did not enjoy staying here... The staff was nice and I loved the girl who worked the night shift... didnt get her name but she was a sweetheart and went out of her way for me... but besides that the rooms were dirty... On the surface they look clean but when you really get to looking there was hair everywhere and dust all over everything, stains on the bed and the showers are dirty and it had a smell of mold or mildew... The hallways were dirty and even the elevators were dirty and weirdly very hot... The breakfast was sub par and the guy who runs it wouldn't leave me alone and then had the audacity to mention that "tips are appreciated"... for what? Talking my head off while I tried to eat?... Yeah right... Dogs barking and drunk people in the rooms next to me who stayed up all night... The lady who checked me out was friendly so I guess the only thing this hotel has going for it is the front desk staff... Fix everything else and maybe people will want to stay here...

Ok but could use improvement

My family and I stayed here on the 16th of September and I did enjoy it for the most part. The hotel staff was very kind and courteous, especially miss Ashley and miss Megan. The breakfast was good (surprised that it even had one because most red roofs don't offer free breakfast) although the breakfast host decided to impose himself on our table and after we left he asked for a tip which I thought was incredibly rude. The rooms were ok, a little dated but it was clean and comfortable. All in all it was a decent hotel stay and I would probably recommend staying here if you are looking for a budget hotel. One of the nicer Red Roofs I have stayed at.
