horrible place to stay
October 10, 2018

this is the worst place I have ever stayed do yourself a favor and if you can sleep in you car do it not here, there room had no ac the management was a bunch of liars, lie to the core sketchy neighborhood, the room the hall way and the bed smells smoke and horrible the stairway smells of urine, no exhaust in bath rooms never get the room cleaned and had a note all the 3 days I stayed sorry no towel and room could not be cleaned today, seems a bad area too, too sketchy t be more precise, unwanted activities going around and the breakfast was a joke cereal, milk and bunch of rotten bananas, never again staying in red roof chain any more.

Terrible Hotel
September 25, 2018

This hotel claims “all new rooms”. Nothing could be further from the truth. One of the worst hotels I’ve stayed at. Sink was cracked,tub had rust in it. I would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. There are plenty of other hotels in and around this area that I’m sure are better.

Great price
September 07, 2018

Located right off the highway, the hotel is an economical and good choice when coming to attend nearby attractions. There is a gas station on same side of the street that you can walk to rather quickly, as well as a few restaurants across the street, and fairgrounds are about ten minutes away. Our room was clean, and staff was wonderful, throughout our weekend stay. The hardwood-looking floors looked shiny new & made wheeling our stuff in and out very easy. The only downside is if you are driving a big vehicle, trailer, or semi - as the parking lot lane is rather small.

Mixed feelings
July 29, 2018

The room was clean. Our issues were that the phone did not work which I only would have used to call the front desk or 911 if needed. Maintenance came and tried a different phone, which didn't work either and then just left saying "You have no phone." Thanks a lot. Also asked about the TV channels as we only had about half of what was listed. He said what we got is what we got..Or at least that is what I got out of it. He didn't speak English very well. All the outside doors were propped open and the security door for which people were supposed to use their key to get in never locked, at least up until 9:30 for sure. Not the best part of town, but have no complaints about the room or desk clerk at all.

July 28, 2018

I gave this hotel a 1 because I couldn’t give it lower. The front desk lady warranted a four but then it ended. Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Filthy, things falling apart, baseboards coming off wall. People drinking in back in paper bags and loitering in front in groups. Not good neighborhood. Didn’t eat breakfast as place too dirty. Slept in my socks and washed the clothes we wore the next day. If was travelling alone I would have left.
