Fits the bill

Posted Jul 21, 2014
I am a relatively easy man to please, and affordability was my first priority. I was happy. Clean, comfortable room with the basics and a friendly staff. It did lack a coffee maker and hair dryer/iron but the coffee was free in the lobby and I had no formal places to be. You do have to drive about a mile to the Metro Station at the end of the yellow line on Huntington St. It was $4.95 all day parking in a well-lit parking garage. From there is was 30 minutes into the city. As long as your expectations match your pocketbook, you should be happy here. I would visit again.

Old building

Posted Jul 11, 2014
I had a standard king room and the AC unit was so loud I couldn't sleep. The room was very small. Hotel staff was very nice and upgraded me to a premium room. The rooms may have gotten a facelift but you can tell that the building is still very old.

Pros: staff was great
Cons: They need more info about local transportation. There is not a business center.
Location: access to the metro was good.
I thought for the price was great. I would have liked maybe something with breakfast.

Good for a night

Posted Jun 17, 2014
This was just what we needed for a night. It was clean in the room and the interior is well kept but kind of run down on the outside. Staff were very nice and accommodating when we showed up an hour before check in

Easy to get to major attractions

Pros: Very quiet.
Cons: Staffing, and keeping the rooms non-smoking as guaranteed.
Location: Washington DC
When I arrived at the Red Roof, I was concerned about the truth regarding this being a non-smoking facility. The room next door to the office had the door open and a man was puffing away on a cigarette and there was another person inside the room smoking,too. This concerned me very, very much; the clerk was rude and short tempered with me when I told of my concern and replied, "that they can't keep people from smoking, but the room should be ok." I was then told to initial a paragraph stating that if I smoked in the room I would be responsible for a $200 cleaning charge. Upon entering the the room the warning was posted at the sink. After the initial contact with the hotel staff which was very disappointing, I did not see anyone before I left and that contact was ok. The room was ok and very quiet, but the blanket was dirty, I slept with just the sheet.

Not bad. Location is OK. However, not fully satisfactory. Not equipped a refrigerator nor a microwave oven.
