TripAdvisor Ratings

Economical Stay Close to NIU
May 25, 2019

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The motel is an older style motel with all the doors going either out to the parking lot or the inner courtyard with outdoor pool. Our king room was well appointed with extra large bedside tables and a nice desk. The bed provided us with a very good night's sleep. There were many outlets for plugging in our devices too. Our particular room was very spacious. If you have mobility issues, you might find this facility a little more challenging as there are not many ramps to the sidewalks. The motel is located near a busy railroad track which we did not find to be a problem. We heard the trains when they went past, but there were no whistles sounding and the building did not shake. You might want to request a room that is away from the tracks.

Wow! Pet friendly and superb service

We were checked in by friendly, cheerful front desk staff. Our room was clean and comfortable. The beds were so comfortable I slept all night! That is not something I''ve been doing at home. WI-FI functioned without fail, also not so at home. Our Chihuahua was welcome and used the field on the other side of the parking lot. We stayed here before when visiting our son and we will stay again, with or without Taco (the dog). When we got home, I couldn't find Taco's monkey. I called. Vicky and staff graciously searched for his toy, but to no avail. The next day I found it had made it home. My husband was worried about noise from the trains behind the hotel. The beds were so comfy we didn't lose any sleep due to noise.

What a nice surprise

We needed a budget friendly hotel in Dekalb for 4 nights and Red Roof Inn rated well and was almost 1/2 price of other hotels in the area. We booked and checked in and what’s wonderful hotel! It’s clearly been recently remodeled. The rooms are immaculate and all brand new. Beds were amazingly comfortable and also very nice pillows. The place was quiet at night for sleeping. I can say nothing to criticize them. Also have a nice fitness center and super fast WiFi. I HIGHLY recommend this hotel.

Didn’t know what to expect

This is the first time i have stayed at a Red Roof Inn. While visiting DeKalb for a cheer competition I decided to book here because it was close to venue and a great price for one night. At check in the gentleman was very polite, he was able to check us in 2 hours before set check in time. Lobby was clean Available parking near the end of the building our room was located in. Room was clean, large, inviting. Bathroom was updated. Sink was outside the actual bathroom area, so made nice for morning prep for cheer completion. Bed was comfortable and lots of pillows, love that!! Yes, it’s close to a train track (which some have noted) but it’s not a big deal. Trains don’t blare their horns when going by. Overall, this hotel/motel was better than expected.
