I stayed here with 3 friends in April 12 for 4 nights. I knew we would be arriving late so prior to leaving the UK I sent Red Roof an e-mail to inform them. I included all the details of the two room bookings and recieved a reply that a note would be added.
After a 3 and a half hour drive from Orlando we arrived at 1.30am to be told we only had one room booked. Even after showing the reception staff my booking confirmations they still looked blankly at me and said I only booked one room in a "take it or leave it" tone. After insisting they had made a mistake they then realised a late arrival note had not been put on our second booking and they then found it in the "No show" file. It was now 2 am and our next problem was finding parking. There is a gated car park down the side of the hotel but the gate is pointless seeing as it opens automatically when you approach it. There is a real lack of spaces and every night we struggled to find a space and sometimes had to park on the grass a little way down the road which didnt feel very safe.
The rooms have recently been renovated and they are large, clean and comfortable. This was the only positive I could find with the Miami Red Roof Inn.
In the four days we were there our keycard had to be reprogrammed twice which meant going from the fifth floor down to the reception to wait in a line because the reception is very slow. This is not very helpful after a long day out.
The communal parts of the hotel do not feel very safe either with large groups of people hanging out in the reception or by the pool at night drinking cans of beer and the back door of the hotel has a keycard reader but is never locked so anybody can get into the buildings without having to pass through reception. Evidence of the lack of security is the fact that 2 to 3 times a day people delivery fast food menus will push them under the door to your room. So if these people are free to walk the corridors without being challenged then what is stopping somebody breaking into your room?
If you are just stopping over for the night before catching a flight then the Red Roof Inn should be just enough for you butany longer then that I would suggest you find elsewhere.
