Verified Reviews of Red Roof Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"In town for Cane cutters Baseball game"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
My daughter and I took a chance on some of your reviews. We don't have tons of money, so looked for something affordable. As we turned into the property we both lost our breath as we observed men drinking on the back of a pick-up, men sitting outside (in nasty shirts and jeans) sippin' booze, men leering from the upper level and nasty looking building all the way around! We are not snobs, this was friggin' scary! We would have been afraid to get out of the car! The whole area is the same! We found something in a way better area, nicely dressed people of all persuasions! Whew! Guess you really do get what you pay for!

"Ugh"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It had been years since we stayed at a Red Roof. Our 1st room was sold as a non-smoking room, but it was connected to a smoking room. Go figure. Let's just say the folks in that room were smoking more than cigarettes and were very noisy. When I couldn't take it any longer my husband went to the office and they did move us to a different room, which was much nicer anyway. We used ear plugs because of the highway noise on that side of the motel. I was reminded that you get what you pay for, along with the type of people that only want to spend $50 on a room.
