We couldn't have been more pleased. This Red Roof is great. It seems new. It is certainly light, modern, very clean and in good condition. Room was spacious which is just as well as we were holed up here during the snow travel ban. It's a large block opposite Capitol Hill (great views if you have a front facing room)...

I have stayed at a number of Red Roofs but this one was a cut above the others. They are usually clean and comfortable; this one a little more so. Great location in the Downtown area, convenient to restaurants and sites. They do not have parking which wasn't obvious from the website and required a telephone call to verify. The...

We stayed here one night (a Friday night) for an event at the XL Center. The hotel is right across the street from the Amtrak station but has good outdoor parking facilities for $17. The XL Center is a 5-8 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel condition was good, without a lot of frills like a gym, bar or...

We stayed at this Red Roof Inn in December 2016. The view from the front on the hotel from the upper floors is magnificent as it is directly across the street from a huge park, the Capitol building, and a landmark Arch. All are nicely lit up at night. The pillows, linens, and bed were soooooo comfy !!! There is...

It was my sister's birthday and she lives downtown Hartford at the Bushnell. The Red Roof Plus is very close so we stayed there. We had booked two rooms both with double beds when my daughter got there first they only had one double and one king. My daughter called me to see if they could have the double and...

We were checking in late and only staying one night. With that in mind we went with the least expensive option. -We were met with a $17 parking fee which negates our savings and proceeded to stay at a subpar hotel. The fee wasn't noted when we booked. -The room smelled as someone had been smoking in it. -The ice...

Dear Gangalv, We appreciate your recent stay with us and would like to apologize for the issues you encountered while staying with us. The $17 parking fee is standard within Downtown Hartford. The parking lots are owned by outside parties and unfortunately we have no control of the fees. We take all feedback seriously and I will make sure the...

The worst hotel experience I can remember. I'm traveling on business, so my hotel room (in Hartford, CT) was booked (and paid for) by my client. When I checked in, I was told that I needed to pay $864. I said, no, that was handled by my client, who made the reservation, and was told that that was just to...

We stayed here before an event at the park near the capitol(right across the street). The place was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. You have to pay $17 for parking, there's plenty of security cameras in the parking lot. The room was a good size with a fairly comfortable King sized bed. The room did...

Good, but very basic room. No full length mirror, no refrigerator, very small basic room, but the location is great for theater and restaurants. Price was reasonable. Front desk was helpful and friendly. Room was clean but a little dated.
