TripAdvisor Ratings

Amazingly pleased
April 02, 2019

I had never stayed at a red roof before but I'm glad I did the staff was amazing very kind and helpful. Clean rooms I absolutely love the pillows! I checked out and had to check back in the same night but my room was still available so they placed me back in the same room so I'd b more comfortable in a familar room kinda like home I will definitely be coming back!

Not bad at all
March 26, 2019

My husband and I like to travel with our dogs but normally we stay at Airbnb’s or the La Quinta chain. Unfortunately with the NCAA tournament in town, it had everything booked up so we took our chance here. When we pulled up, it looked quite a bit run down but our room was surprisingly nice and the staff was likd. I like that the floors are not carpeted for the animals. Our door to the outside did not lock with the deadbolt and you couldn’t enter through it either, which the latter ended up being ok because there were some sketchy people in the back parking lot so we avoided that area and used the main entrance. The staff was friendly and the place seemed clean. There isn’t much land for the pups to use for the bathroom. We’d stay here again if we were in the same situation.

Very Mixed Bag
March 26, 2019

Our room was terrific -- spacious, clean, well-appointed with all the necessary stuff, and with a comfortable bed. The price was great, and we always appreciate Red Roof's pet-friendly policies. Convenient location (though if you take your pet for a walk in the neighborhood behind the hotel, watch out for the neighbor with the three extremely ferocious and unleashed black dogs). Front desk staff was OK, not hostile, not overly friendly. And the wi-fi wasn't immediately obvious, that took a little work to figure out. But -- the breakfast was beyond substandard. The sole main choices were (1) Raisin Bran, (2) Cinnamon Toast cereal, or (3) biscuits and gravy, with some sausage patties on the side. No fruit, no yogurt, no eggs, waffles, etc. Even for hotels in that value class, this breakfast was bad. Need to work on that a lot.

Very accommodating
February 20, 2019

We came in late to their hotel and was very tired. We were staying 2 nights. in Manishe the receptionist gave us extra towels and wash cloths so we could refresh ourselves. It was appreciated it. The breakfast was nice and hot and always filled

Best Red Roof Inn
February 15, 2019

While traveling through Iowa, I became ill and had to be hospitalized for a few days. We had stopped at this motel for a night but ended up being there 3 nights. Manisha, the front desk person, was so kind and did everything she could to help us. The room was spacious and clean, and a comfortable santuary for my husband and our two dogs while we were waiting for me to be released from the hospital. The beds were comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
