Very friendly, helpful staff. Clean rooms with nice amenities of microwave and refrigerator. Good strength of Wi-fi. Walking distance to good restaurants and close to campus. Safe location and a short ride from train station. Good value for the price, would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here and thought we were getting a regular room, but we're offered a suite. For $10 more... Well worth it plus closer to walking the dogs area. Had two beds, plus sofa pulled out as well. Fridge and micro wave too in a separate living area.

We are waiting on our home so we decided to try the Red Rood Inn for a few days and we were pleasantly pleased. One of the best things were you can bring your pets and they don't charge for them like most hotels. We met Amesh and Vijay and they were very helpful getting us checked in.
