Power outage

On Christmas night I was traveling from TX to VA. A snowstorm hit and I needed to retire for the night. I hopped on Priceline and grabbed the nearest 3 star place. When I arrived, none of the lights were on. That was a little concerning, for sure. When I get inside, there's a line and it appears that the power is out. When I get the front, the man behind the desk let's me know he can't check me in because of the power outage. I have a receipt, I have a phone with internet capability, I can even call Priceline for him to confirm my payment. But they won't check me in. There was another group that *were* checked in because they didn't use Priceline. I don't get it. I paid for a room. Use a hotspot. Check people in. It's 22 degrees outside. So I decide to try and wait it out and sleep in my backseat, hoping to get a room at some point. Welp, never happened. Woke up shivering in my backseat and decided to drive a few more mile north. I have zero experience driving in the snow, but there were fewer cars at 1:00 am. This really was a terrible experience.

Treated like family

I just HAD to write a review due to the kindness and cleanliness of this hotel.. because of Covid me and my husband have been quarantined and every weekend we book a room just to get away for a while.. well I got addicted to Red Roof Hotels..In particular, the Papermil location in Knoxville Tennessee... the pool is nice and CLEAN... The rooms are always superb and well maintained.. these are 5 star rooms for an astonishing low price!!!..oh and my FAVORITE part of checking in is when I get to see Jeff Davis..the customer service agent usually here when I come. He is always smiling and such a pleasant person. Makes me feel like I'm getting a VIP treatment everytime.He goes above and beyond if needed just to make sure his guests have a perfect stay.. I hope this company rewards him for his great professionalism and kindness...i recommend RED ROOF INN to ANYONE that needs a nice place to stay at an affordable price...THANKS GUYS!!!

Family reunion vacation

Basic but well maintained hotel, very friendly staff and lovely pool. The only disappointment was that breakfast bar closed due to covid restrictions. Would definitely stay here again with the next reunion!

Very nice!

We stopped for the night on our way home from Florida. Last minute booking because we just kept driving until we needed to stop. Very nice front desk gentleman- friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and the shower was the best we had on our vacation! Breakfast was great! Don’t pass this one up!

Not highly recommended

For the price this place wouldn’t be bad at all except not too clean. The bedspread had a greasy looking stain in middle about size of dinner plate. Ok I can throw that off bc I don’t use those anyways. The sheets and blanket after folding them down, I found very long black hairs amongest them “awful”. Need to take better care of their rooms at least look like sheets and blankets were changed 😡 I like staying at RedRoof but not this one
