Traveling from the Northeast down south and needed a bed and a shower and that's what we got. Room was clean but the overall feel of the hotel was average. Water pressure in the shower was minimal. Staff was courteous and attentive and honored the rate I was quoted online with out having to book through the app. If you...

Room was clean, furniture was from another decade. Bed was comfy, front desk was very helpful. The exterior garbage can were all full and very smelly so either they were very busy or short staffed. For an inexpensive stay under $60. All was ok.

The room was so dirty and unkempt that I was uncomfortable all night. We had to stay somewhere on our way to SC and this seemed like a good place online. No way. Never, ever again. Gross, dirty and the "breakfast" was disgusting and disappointing.

We utilize the Red Roof Inn in Emporia, VA as our first stop on our way to Florida. Basic accommodations, currently being updated. Clean, quiet, the staff was friendly and helpful. Bathroom was a little dated, but it was clean as were the towels. We would stay here again.

We like Red Roof, and are members of their benefit club, but this is by far the worst one we have stayed in. We arrived late and were very tired. We had a king room reserved. When we got in the room, it was in horrible shape. There was dirt and grime all over the AC unit, hair on the...

Like other reviewers, we were just passing through T, needing a safe, cheap, quiet place to spend the night. The hotel seems to be undergoing a bit of a rehab, so improvements may be on the horizon. Our room was clean (enough, not perfect, but fine), had adequate towels you won't be tempted to steal. The heat/AC unit was quiet...

Traveling on I-95 and needed a place to stay. We stopped in Emporia where there are a few hotels just off the interstate. Best Western and Holiday Inn Express had much higher rates. All we needed was a place to sleep. RRI priced quoted was significantly less than other places we checked. I was quoted $62 on the phone. Arrived...

Like other reviews, it's a place to stop for an overnight stay while traveling I-95. Rooms are basically equipped with refrigerator and coffee maker. I would have given this place 2 stars if the sheets were cleaner. Sheets were all stained, meaning they weren't laundered properly or not changed at all, but don't want to consider the latter. Many thanks...
