TripAdvisor Ratings

Best Hospitality!!!
July 26, 2019

We were in town July 17, 2019 - July 21, 2019 for my sons wedding. The moment we walked into this hotel, the staff and the beautiful lobby area were very welcoming. The staff made our stay that much better. The hotel is clean and nice and pet friendly for those that travel with their fur babies. The rooms were nice and big. I cannot say enough about the family that runs this hotel and their hospitality while we were there. Kudos to Art, AJ and the rest of their family and staff. They helped us in so many ways while we were there for the wedding and made our time there very enjoyable. I would stay there again and recommend for anyone to stay there.

Nice clean modern hotel. Got a good night's sleep. Good wifi. Good lighting in rooms. Good area out back for dog walking. Plenty of handicap parking. I've seen better breakfasts at other hotels but it was ok. Very satisfied with our stay.

Comfortable and Pleasant
June 02, 2019

Stayed in this hotel last July returning from a trip to the Smokies. Predicted from the bright and spacious lobby that this would be a pleasant night's stay. I was right. The room was clean and comfortable, and the desk attendant was friendly and gracious. Breakfast included some hot items, and, a morning jogger, I found a quiet residential area only a few blocks away on the same side of the road--perfect for a run. Will definitely stay here again next time I'm up that way.

Very Pleased
May 27, 2019

I come to visit family once or twice a year in this region. Generally I have to stay a few miles away in Athens, but was pleased to find a Red Roof Inn has opened in Etowah. From my first contact by phone (I called the local number to make my reservation) to checking in and out at the desk, I found the associates extremely personable and efficient - quiet welcoming in fact, something rare these days and much appreciated. The room was comfortable and clean, and affordably priced. Over all a very pleasant and satisfying stay.

Perfect place to stay for the train ride
May 21, 2019

The hotel is a little tired, but it's clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was average. The time it was served was convenient. The rooms were quite. Since it's the only hotel in town, we were a little reluctant. I would stay there again.
