stolen items
August 23, 2019

I left my watch at the property during my stay and called the same day to have them locate my watch. I called back the same day to report my watch was stolen and they reassured me that my watch was at the front desk and I can come pick it up. I called a week or two later (due to my brother passing away during that time) and no one has any history of my watch being found or located at all. talked to everybody at the front desk including the general manager and was told my watch is no longer at the desk! this property steals guest items and act like nothing ever happened!!!!! PLEASE BE AWARE! i am in talks with their corporate office and BBB! PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS PLACE! THEY ARE THIEF'S!!!!!!

Cheap is cheap
July 19, 2019

You get what you pay for is all I can say. I wasn’t expecting a Hilton at this price but it’s definitely a no-frills motel. The room appears clean and has fresh paint but it is small. It smells a little too much of cleaning products but there was no smoke smell. There is no hairdryer so come prepared if you need one. I had issues with our door. The seal is totally loose and you can see outside through the crack. I wondered about bugs coming in through the crack. The bedspread is getting tattered also. The AC is loud and while it cooled it didn’t take care of humidity. On the positive side, it was quiet, the bed was good and it’s conveniently located near the interstate. The evening front desk fellow was courteous but very busy as he was the only one checking folks in and answering the phone. When I went to check out in the morning, I asked to have the $1.50 safe fee removed and was told it had been. I could tell it hadn’t been and pointed that out and she insisted it was. I wasn’t going to quibble about $1.50 with someone who obviously doesn’t know how to read a bill so I let it go. That’s probably how they get the extra $1.50 on all the rooms. For an overnight stay it was ok but next time I will look elsewhere. P

Poor Customer Service
July 16, 2019

First I would like to say customer service is key. I booked this hotel on hotwire and paid for the hotel. I have stayed there multiple times for work. I am a lineman I work 15 hour shift I come to the hotel for sleep and shower that is all. I booked the hotel and paid for it and was denied a room because of a dnr list I ask the owner why I was put on the dnr list and he could not answer me I was told he didn't have a reason. The owner had no concern nor did he even try to correct the situation after spending money at his hotel previous stays he showed no type concern. I have never been so insulted the careless attitude was shocking. I will never spend a dime at this hotel nor will I recommend this hotel my co-workers and friends I know may review may not mean anything But I will say thank you to the owner Hardy P. for showing me how you value your guest and where not to spend my hard earned money. It is amazing how people will take your money but give you sub par customer service.

Not the best experience
June 12, 2019

I’ve stayed at this place many times And it’s a great location but the front desk staff was ok but could do better when checking and checking out its like they don’t care . I’ve also been there while waiting To to be checked in and the front desk staff was RUDE I’ve also noticed that I haven’t been seeing Vee there I’m hope everything is good with her. she was always super helpful and reminding me she just a phone Call away if I needed anything. she knew the true meaning of hospitality. The rooms smelled like smoke, old furniture, bed were comfortable I slept very well I’ll say that and the rooms were clean. Seriously this red-roof needs update their furniture

Very satisfied
May 08, 2019

I always have a pleasant stay while visiting this Location. Last few times I have been checked in by “V” which always seems to be concerned about my comfortability while staying there! Always greets me with a smile on her face, Check in process is very quick & she has great customer service skills!! Not only does she ask if there’s anything else she can do for me but always suggest she’s a phone call away if I need anything else! Will definitely recommend this location to friends and family!!
