We booked a double room with 2 queen beds, the beds were springy, could actually feel and hear the springs when I move. The space for the shower was only half the normal size and it was kind of blocked where the water in the shower will rise up to my ankle. 2 towels was only provided hence there was...

The most amazingly accommodating and efficient staff. We called from airport at 9:30 a.m. for a shuttle. While others from more expensive hotels waited frustrated by poor communication, we knew how long ours would take and got a call back with an update. When we arrived at hotel, we were hoping we could leave our bags behind the desk since...

So when we checked in, things were good, friendly worker. The noise the first night was a bit much until about 11pm then got a little better. However the second and last day/night was totally different. The noise was horrible, and a lot of it seems to be from other guests who seem to live there and like to yell...

Red Roof Downtown was the perfect spot, for the perfect price! LITERALLY everything you want to do is a mile away. There is Little Italy, Seaport Village, the USS Midway Museum, etc...The walks were a breeze. The room was comforting and roomie. Overall great stay! I would definitely recommend.

The guy that helped us in the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The inn looks like a motor inn. The room was standard, spacious, walls are very thin, I can hear people coming in and out of their rooms having a conversation outside, wasn't too bad. I'm glad we had good neighbors that night. They have room service...

Of course it's an older motel. But they are remodeling it now. With that being said, I am sure when they get it done it will get my 5 star rating. No it isn't the Hilton, but I am rating it that way... I am rating The Red Roof Inn. Would I stay again? Yes...

From unsafe to disgusting. These photos are our actual room. The phone is broken, there is mold in the tub, grime around the toilet, uneven flooring and the topper is the outlet without a cover. The dump isn't worth the almost $150 per night. The bed is hard, squeaks loudly and the pillows are flat and stink. I'm totally grossed...

We chose this hotel based on price as we were only staying one night and it was just somewhere to lay our heads.
