It is a Red Roof
September 12, 2019

Only there for one night, relatively clean and in a Quiet area. May not be so quiet during the week. All good other than no cold water in the sink and the faucet was ready to fall off. You get waht you pay for I guess.

September 1-2 labour day:)
September 03, 2019

The ice-maker in the second building doesn’t work, small renovations outside the hallway, the light on our sink has connection problem(it takes 5 clicks to turn it on sometimes) and the room has musky smell. Overall we are good, we got what we paid for (one night) and its labour day $125.61CA. Free coffee/tea at the front desk and the wifi is fast no need password. Safe area close to Hilton hotel.No gym room, luckily we are a member of LaFitness (elite member) a quick drive. Workers and front desk are nice:)

Large Room, Good area
August 06, 2019

There's plenty of room, decent sized beds, working television and appliances. There's not much for vending machines, there's no iron, and the rooms can be a bit dark. For the price you'd think you'd have a slight bit more luxury, at least be treated kinder by the staff, but I guess it is what you "pay a lot" for??

What is the "Plus"
July 24, 2019

The staff at the desk was very pleasant and provided with the room key and information. When moving in we found a few plumbing problems, on of which was corrected immediately. Due to the others we were transferred to another room whch was very nice and we had a great time. We just could not figure out what the "plus" in the name implied. Our stay at other RRI-s (now and in the past) was just as enjoyable.(This one did not even had a breakfast room)

Adequate-not great
June 23, 2019

Very unimpressed with this franchise. Room, bed, and showers were OK. No breakfast for same price as Choice chain which has a full hot breakfast. TV tried to trick you into paying for selected movies and feature. Also tried to charge for use of safe even though we did not use it.
