The location of the Red Roof Inn is nice because it is next to a Walmart, Kohls, IHop, and different stores that are walking distance. Housekeeping doesn't clean the rooms daily, so you need to make sure that they clean them. Even though it states 100% smoke free, we happen to see people smoking outside the rooms by the balcony...

Staff was always friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Would definitely stay again. Only change I would suggest is adding a small refrigerator and a hair blow dryer and lose the room safe. Rooms aren't large but the king-sized bed was very comfortable. Very small desk area. Lots of restaurants and things to do in a short driving distance ....

When attending an event in Akron, the organizers recommended the Red Roof Inn. I was happy with the low rate but a little concerned what the room would look like. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised that our room was clean, the staff was friendly and the location was very convenient. I would definitely stay here again.
