Room was large, warm and inviting . Price was most appealing to us as well. Friendly service. We needed to go to a department store for some items before turning in for the night and Tim, our desk clerk was very helpful in directing us to a dept store.

We found this Red Roof Inn simply because it was next to an Applebee's we had stopped at for dinner. To our delight, the price was very reasonable and close to our conference during the day. The staff has been knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are newly remodeled, complete with mini-fridge and microwave. We love the laminate floors because you...

The room was surprisingly nice! No carpet which was a very nice change of pace. The bed was very comfortable but the bathroom left something to be desired. Everything seemed to be recently updated except the tub. It definitely needed some help. The guy at the front desk was very helpful and polite.
