Verified Reviews of Red Roof Inn & Suites University

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Don’t stay there."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We left after being reimbursed. The room we were given stunk of smoke. The entire place looks worn out, dated and felt unclean. The lobby was locked and we had to check in through a window that was hard to communicate through. I felt that we were addressed with suspicion and borderline hostility when we checked in. We requested that we get our money back because we were not willing to stay there. We will never stay at another red roof inn.

"Gross"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
We were not happy at all with this hotel. We understand that it's two star, but it could have at least been clean there was a dark stain at the top of our stairs with a soiled towel covering it. The headboard in our room was thick with dust and there was hair on my pillow. The chain on the door was broken, as was the toilet seat. Our toiletries included one tube of shampoo and a bar of soap. We went to bed and heard music coming from the room next door. It kept going and we were up in the middle of the night trying to call the manager, but our phone was disconnected from the wall, so we had to call using our mobile but couldn't get through. My husband ultimately went to the desk and told the guy “what if the alarm clock went off to music and there's no one in there.. can you check your computer to see if the room is occupied? Then you can go in and turn it off.” He “texted” his manager to see what to do. Consequently, the music went on all through the night. We ended up cancelling the rest of our stay because it was such a nightmare. The one thing I can say is that the daytime staff were very nice.
