Ya Get What Ya Pay For
October 09, 2019

Don't get me wrong, it's OK. We were only staying one night, so it was acceptable. The breakfast is skippable, the room is fairly clean. Could use new mattresses. Vending machines were broken down. The ice machine was empty. I would have been disappointed if I were staying for a longer vacation. This is definitely a motel, not a resort by any means.

A Nice Stay
September 28, 2019

Very nice, clean and comfortable. Very close to town center, certainly within walking distance. Breakfast provided included waffles and pancakes but no fresh fruit. Note that the sidewalk that juts out on the right when approaching the office can barely be seen due to the steep driveway. Would we stay again? Probably

The free internet is garbage and must have been installed by the Wright brothers after there maiden flight. Your better off with two dixie cups and a hunk of twine. The carpet was filthy and the sink spit water everywhere. The door looked like it had been broken into so many times they stopped repairing it. For over $200.00 a night I expected more than a hostel for backpackers. The only reason I gave it one star was you couldn’t give it less. I wouldn’t stay here again at gunpoint

It was very nice. I loved the view. The room was perfect. The staff was friendly. I will definitely be back and next time with my kids. Anything we had problems with they fixed. The pool was nice. Rooms were cleaned.

Went to office was advised towels just now coming out of dryer 1/2 hr later towels arrived but still no effort to clean room.Returning from dinner still no effort to clean room, mattress was very uncomfortable and sagged in middle.Second day went into town for breakfast and touring returned at 3:00pm fresh towels in room.But room not cleaned at all. Disgusted with motel and checked out early, loosing cost of third night.Desk clerk could have cared less Will never use Red Roof Inns again
