Very poor service. The rooms smell like cigarette smoke. The floor was nasty. People at night screaming outside. Lobby attendee rude not very welcoming. Coffee maker not working. Door lock fell off doors. The maintenance man was the only one that was polite very nice. I should get half my money back.

"Terrible, they had to use a rubber hammer to open our door."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Our first room was not cleaned and there was food and food wrappers everywhere. The beds were not made and towels were everywhere. The gave us another room which the door had to opened with a rubber hammer. There was no phone and the little refrigerator was frozen shut. The second day we had no towels and our room was never touched let alone cleaned. Will never stay at another RedRoof Inn again.

"Terrible! Unsafe! Police present! Door smashed in! Dirty looking condition!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Do Not Stay There! After getting our keys, we drove around to the room we were assigned and a guy in a car came speeding out and almost hit us. As we pulled forward, two big guys were standing by our room door. The door was dented in. We did not park. Police pulled in behind us and we followed them around the building to return the room keys and tell them to cancel our reservation. Nasty area and not a safe, nice place to stay!

Overall Score1.0/ 5
I need to get a full refund as we never used our keys. We were almost hit by a man in a car running from police as we drove around the back of the building and up to our #109 door. Two big guys were standing by our door and the door was dented in. We pulled back out and drove around the front where the police were sitting observing the main entrance area. I went into return the keys and asked for a refund since this was definitely not a place I wanted to stay with my grandson. I was told my reservation was unchangeable. Under these circumstances, I left anyway. You please refund my money ASAP! This hotel listing was rated a four star. This is not a 4star area or building in anyone's stretch of their imagination!

"Left within 45 minutes still had to PAY! READ REVIEW!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Left room within 45 min. Only reason my husband was there that long was because he was trying to use his phone as a TV remote because there wasn't a TV remote in the room. He then checked out and we were told he was in the room too long to refund it was now considered dirty.. Believe me, It was dirty on arrival. We had prepaid and now are still awaiting refund of the second day. But I sure did get a receipt by text and by email of the entire two night cost on the second day. Still waiting on a refund of the second night! So far the most expensive 45 minutes ever and trying to use his phone as a remote for the TV failed as well so don't waste your time with that! Either way I made a reservation at 8:30 am He checked in at 2:45 He checked out at 3:30 and so far it has cost us 143$ dollars and some change! This experience was beyond unpleasant and all so that he could stay close to his JOBSITE since he had to work all weekend! This Hotel (more like motel) made working the weekend the highlight! Shame on Red Roof for not making an exception and refunding 100% OF OUR STAY! We went to the Holiday INN Express on Arlington Ridge and were treated amazingly! GO there and ASK for ASHLEY! Tell her Rocco the Bulldogs Mom sent you!

"Did not stay!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Upon arrival we were asked to stand ouside of the hotel in 91 degree humid weather while they did shift change. Upon checking in and looking at the room it was filthy. First glance were stains on the bed spreads, spilled fluids and grime on the mini fridge. Bathroom was full of flies and mold. We went immediately downstairs for a refund. Unfortunately we were told they did not know how to refund and that they did not have a contact number for them. It was a very unpleasant experience to which I am still trying to get a refund for five nights I did not stay! I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It felt very unsafe in the area of Akron it is located. I did look at the photos and reviews online prior to booking and felt that I was grossly misled.

"Poor"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I did not have a good experience at all. I would not recommend this “hotel” at all! If anything, just spend the money on a good hotel or find cheaper if you can. My room had two pillows for a huge king sized bed that were pushed to one side. The blankets and sheets had homes in them and did not look washed. The sitting chair had this food left on it! It also smelt like a smokers house and I instantly left! I did not bring anything into the room and I would honestly recommend not to if you desperately need to stay here.

The room was filthy. I wiped water off the floor and the rag was filthy. The bed spread served as the blanket and was obviously dirty with stains. The room stank of smoke and there were burn stains in the rug. Was a non smoking room. Disgusting.

Overall Score3.0/ 5
When we entered the office, at least I thought it was a good deal, my wife thought not too bad either. Then we got to our room, found there were no towels. So we called the desk, no big deal. Time went by that I decided to go to the office for ourselvs. While at the office, I had to mention to the clerk about the dresser drawers being missing, so that they would not think we took them. Other then those small details, We had a wonderful time. The desk clerk was very helpful in directing us to our next endever. Thank you.

"Unhappy Stay!"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I would not stay here again. They jacked up the price due to events going on. I've stayed in excellent hotels, classier, and nicer for less. The room had bugs like gnats of some kind. There was a gap under the entry door. The air conditioner didn't work properly. No vent in restroom. Due to the time and events, I had no choice and was told this was last room. They knew when I left on the 9th I was not happy. It is the 19th and I have had no response from them.

"Not Happy"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
When making reservations, I asked if there was a coffee pot and a hair dryer in the room and was told that there was. When we arrived we found out that most rooms did not come with either one of these and of course our room did not have one. Other than that, the room was fine and the receptionist at the front desk was very nice.

The room was quiet and clean. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling with pets. Close to I-77, easy on and easy off. Lots of places to eat and gas up.

"Hotel Planner got money but didn't make the reservation"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
When I arrived at the Red Roof Inn in Akron (the night of October 24, 2013) they did not have a reservation for me. I showed them my printout of the reservation. They were very polite and called the nearest Red Roof Inn to see if it had gone there in error but they had no record of it either. Next we called the national Red Roof Inn support number and they also had no record but could tell from the information I provided them that the reservation was made on the Hotel Planner website and not Red Roof's. They gave me Hotel Planner's phone number, which I promptly called--now it's around 9:00 - 9:30 pm. After going through a couple of prompts I got the message: "all of our representatives are busy assisting other callers, please leave your message and a phone number and we'll call you back as soon as possible" ---(that's not a verbatim quote but the essence of the recorded message). We hadn't had dinner so we went to a restaurant next to the hotel and had dinner thinking that our call would be returned while we ate and then we could get this snafu straightened out. NO CALLBACK EVER CAME!! The Red Roof Inn registration person was very helpful and got us the best rate possible and was everything you would want a person in that capacity to be (bless her!) so we paid for the room (again) and were able to spend the night. We were enroute to the East Coast and today, November 26, 2013 at around 5:00 pm, is the first opportunity that I've had to put this in writing. WE STILL HAVE NOT HAD A CALL FROM HOTEL PLANNER. At this time I don't know if Hotel Planner is a scam website or not but there is a charge on my credit card for them so my next email will be to my credit card company to get a credit for service I never received. In the future I will be much more careful to only use websites of actual hotel chains to avoid such an incident. Bob N
