This is by far the worst hotel you can stay, its like a Halloween nightmare hotel. You will sleep with one eye open all night, between the noise, bed bugs and other filth roaming the night. The hotel does not smell, it stinks like something died in the rooms and was left for years without cleaning. Hotel staff is rude,... More

After staying in Red Roof Inn in 4 different states this was the worst one. The room had a dank funk that never went away and was very dated. The smell wouldn't go away even after hours of running the ac. The mattress was drooping in the middle and the pillows should have been discarded years ago. The bathtub was... More

You get what you pay for so shouldn't have too high expectations here and there are lots of places to eat nearby but whoever was in the room above us was very loudly banging around all day and night. The walls could definitely be thicker!

Reserved a king room with ADA accessibility. Was offered a second floor room. Pushed for a first floor room. Got one with one full size bed, no easy chair.

I was there with my fiancé and 3 year old son. Only expected a clean, simple room, no frills. Upon entrance, the lobby was dark dirty and dingy. Getting on elevator that someone was smoking weed just got off. Room looked like a crack and hooker den. There wasn't a bottom on the tub floor. The furniture was torn dirty... More

I think it was a great spot to stop in, we got in to see family and had no reservations. A lot of hotels were booked or too pricey. This place was just right and the frontdesk were more than accomodating. We checked-in later after midnight and they were quick to show us a room even though people (very rude... More

Well if you ever dreamt of sleeping in an active crime scene with filth and drug deals all around- well you found the "right" place. Bottom line this place would do well with a fire or a controlled demolition - service awful, room horrid, smell bountiful- they should have a sign: abandon all hope he who enters here". Avoid at...
