2/10 Poor

$130 WAISTED, GROSS PEE STAINED bed, loud neighbor
Bed spread had brown spots and stains all over, sheets had pee spot/stain, other sheets had spots on it, bathroom door had brown splatter (coke maybe?), sink was gross, neighbors were loud, making booty popping dance videos, baby running up and down walk in diaper while they partied, and carried one on the hip and smoked drugs. Asked for clean sheets and was denied, saying they are just stains and clean. Didn't compain about neighbors because 1. Wouldn't do any good 2. Didn't want any trouble as I was by myself with 2 children. We slept and got out quick! Nearly just used the shower and thought about leaving to find somewhere to sleep in our car, but we got through the night and out of there!

Our stay was pretty good, the beds were toooo soft for my liking and the main door needed new seals , it let light in through the cracks but overall was pretty good.

2/10 Poor

This Red Roof had tons of construction workers who left there muddy boots outside their rooms and in the walkway/breeze way where there was tons of dirt and mud. They trash been in the breezeway was over flowing with garbage and beer cans/boxes to the point of blocking the steeps. When they left for work in the morning they were not quiet at all which woke you up for hours; as different groups left at different times. The windows must have been single pane; cause you could here all the conversations, and slamming doors. The hotel staff started early morning cleaning rooms, and dragging their charts up and down the hallway. The charts didn’t have rubber wheels, they had metal wheels so you could hear the charts which were extremely loud. Either the hotel workers were drag racing them down the hallway, or the workers must have forgotten items, cause they constantly going up and down the hallways. Extremely to early to start cleaning the rooms, if the construction workers are damaging or dirtying the room so the staff has to clean them at 5 and 6 in the morning; I recommend they either stop renting to them or make them sign documents not to trash the hotel and keep it quiet on the premises. Poorly mismanaged; when you check in and the night shift doesn't give a message to the morning staff about a late check out, and then the front desk/cleaning staff wakes you up well before regular check out time its ridiculous.

Great overnight stay
The woman who checked us in was very pleasant. Our room was clean and spacious. The only complaint I would have is with the breakfast. I'm not sure how early you need to get to breakfast to have options...I dont think anything gets refilled. Otherwise it was a great overnight stay.
