By Far Worst Hotel Experience Ever
November 09, 2018

This was by far the worst hotel experience I've ever had. When we arrived to our room after check-in, the room was still dirty from the last guest. The beds were a mess, trash was overflowing and on the floor, and all the towels were dirty and left everywhere, plus the in room safe didn't work. I called the front desk to let them know and they said they'd get it cleaned right away. We left to go to our event and came back over 12 hours later and the room was in the exact same condition. I went down stairs to get a different room and the lady at the front desk handed me new towels and that was it. I even told her I'd take new sheets and make the beds myself, but she said I'd have to take it up with the manager in the morning. When I was handed the towels, I used my foot to hold open the door so I could take the towels with both hands and the lady freaked out and started slamming the door on my foot and screaming at me. For no reason. I am not exaggerating. I was neither aggressive nor belligerent. She screamed and the cop that was there on duty came over and looked as confused as I was. He apologized to me and said I'd have to take it up with the manager in the morning. Meaning myself and my guest still had to sleep on dirty beds. I went back up to the room and the lady called me back down to give me a new room (she made no mention or apology for her earlier uncalled for freak out). She gave me a new room key and said I'd be refunded for the stay (have yet to see a refund). The lady that is nightshift needs to be let go and someone with more sense and a better disposition needs to replace her. I've never been screamed at like that, especially when it was completely unwarranted. I recommend anyone considering this Red Roof Inn to find anywhere else to stay for the night. By far the worst hotel experience I've ever had. F- in all categories.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I forgot my toothpaste and Saniya at the front desk gave me some, she was very nice and professional. My room was clean and quiet, I stayed on the first floor. It is a lot of restaurants in walking distance which is a plus since they don't serve breakfast.

Great Staff- Phyliss is so helpful!
November 02, 2018

I needed some printing done, and even though there is no business center, Phyliss was kind enough to print what I needed for me. The staff was very kind as well as welcoming and security guard patrols all night long. The hotel is very accommodating.

Accommodating, friendly, helpful

I booked this room for my inlaws when we were evacuated from our home because of Hurricane Florence. My father-in-law is a heart patient with doctors at Duke, and this hotel was about 7 minutes away. He also has special needs due to his health. The staff was very helpful with meeting his needs. They were willing to allow them to run their generator if the power went out (which it did NOT, thankfully). The hotel was clean and located within walking distance from many restaurants, a grocery store,and a Home Depot. The folks here made a stressful situation less so because of their kindness!

I always prefer staying at Red Roof Inns, and chose this one while visiting my cousin, and her family. It’s located near shopping and dining, and is clean, reasonably priced, and comfortable. Hope Blackwell, Cassandra, and the rest of the staff; were very helpful and friendly. My pet rabbit (service animal), Narvik; was also very comfortable and enjoyed his visit. If ever in this area again, I would definitely stay at the Red Roof Inn; and so should you! Two rabbit ears up!! (\ (\ ( -.-) o_(“)(“)
