Verified Reviews of Red Roof Inn Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I love all the people we meet each year at Red Roof. Everyone, from those at the front desk to the security guard, is helpful, cheerful, considerate and polite. The location is terrific which is one reason we have returned each year for over a decade. The only drawback I can see is the physical condition of some of the rooms. Some of our group had fantastic rooms with everything in working order. Others were not so fortunate and several rooms had to be moved on account of faulty doors or odors or plumbing issues. I hope some of those building issues can be addressed because the rest of the Red Roof experience is wonderful. Thanks.

"Nothing like photos, broken facilities, bad service, expensive"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This hotel was awful. Upon entering, we could tell immediately. The elevator had trash and papers on the floor and the hallway to our room was dank, dirty, and so narrow it made me claustrophobic. The room was nothing like the pictures we saw online. It was tiny, uncomfortable, and didn't even have a work table. Not that that would have helped, since the Wifi didn't work. When my husband took a shower, the bathtub filled with water to the brim and never drained, so I had to ask for a key to another room to shower. The staff gave me the key to a room which was supposedly empty, but when I opened the door, the room was clearly inhabited by a man. I had to return to the desk, ask for another key, and go to a different room. After all the hassle, I was late to the conference I was attending. In short, it was a terrible experience. We could have stayed at a Motel 8 and had the same quality of facilities, probably better, for 100 dollars less. I will never stay at a Red Roof Inn again.
