Disliked: Cleanliness
I got a non smoking room and when I walked in it stunk terribly. The bathroom had bugs in it. Towels had stains and we found hair in the towels. My three year was walking on the floor and her feet turned black. The clothes iron holder was disgusting. After 45 min of being in the room we found a room in a hotel beside it and stayed the night in that hotel. I tried to get a refund but the property manager just said it’s not refundable and did nothing. Would never stay at any red roof in again.

Disliked: Amenities
We checked in late and entered our room and it was hot and smelly. Once we turned on the room AC unit it did cool down. There was the smell of cigarette smoke and marijuana smoke in our room and figured it was coming from outside our room. But we were exhausted and fell asleep quickly. The next morning we were awoken at 5am to the very strong smell of cigarette and marijuana. Again, we thought it was coming from outside and once we couldn't go back to sleep we decided to go next door to Cracker Barrell for breakfast. When we stepped outside we didn't smell anything and then realized the smoke must be coming from a room near our room. When we got back from breakfast our room was so smoky that we just packed up and left (a lot earlier than we anticipated and without taking showers). Upon checking out I mentioned the smoke issues to the receptionist.

$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!
