TripAdvisor Ratings

Nice, clean economic place
October 14, 2018

We stayed 2 nights at Red Roof. The rooms were very clean and the staff was friendly and courteous. We will stay there again if we are in the area. The only problem was the people above us were very heavy walkers. Second night we stayed on the 3rd floor.

Clean hotel, friendly staff
October 12, 2018

We decided to stay at this hotel because it was close to the train depot. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I would recommend getting a room facing away from the highway because there is a good bit of noise from the traffic. Breakfast was good and there are several places to eat in the area. Would stay there again.

Welcome to the South

Every year we go to Tennessee this is the hotel we stay at. My father lives in Etowah. Other family members live near by, in Benton and Cleveland.. The staff there is very friendly. Our rooms have always been satisfactory. I would recommend this hotel to vacationers that would be traveling here or need over-night stay from the freeways.

Very nice hotel, great staff/owners!
June 14, 2018

I drove some people to a nearby town and stayed overnight. This was the second time I've stayed. They were accommodating for my need to check out late which helped tremendously. They are pet friendly too, the first time we stayed in 2017 we took our dog and he enjoyed it as much as we did!

Needs Updating but clean
May 28, 2018

Location is great, close to local stores just in case you forgot something. Free parking as well. The rooms were clean but could definitely use some upgrading. The sitting chair in room was a little worn - black marks on the seat, arms and ottoman. Shower area was clean but very awkward shape, walk in shower but it was shaped in an 's' shape & water would get all over the floor in the bathroom. The wifi was very slow and the a delay in the TV was very noticeable. The room was clean which is always what I first look for & for the price not a bad place to stay.
