My room had roaches. My tube was filthy. I work at night and need to sleep during the day. The hotel was only willing to move me to a new room in the hours I was sleeping. The hotel was not full, but insisted on placing me in a bank of rooms where work was being done, instead of to a quieter area of the hotel.

This was BY FAR the worst hotel experience I've ever had. We saw roaches as soon as we walked in. The toilet seat was only partially attached. The paint was chipping off everywhere. The attendant at the front desk was not very helpful.

This was the worst motel I have ever been in. It was absolutely disgusting. I stayed is the king suite with spa bath and we seen roaches crawling up the walls. It smelled like cigarettes, the walls were cracked and had holes. The pull out bed was so dirty my son had to sleep in bed with my husband and I. There was no door knob on the bathroom door, the carpet was so dirty I was afraid to take my shoes off. The spa bath jets were broken. The air conditioner took hours to cool the room down. The halls and outside of the motel were just as nasty. I paid over 200 for this room and have had better rooms for less than 100,

Dirty run down motel. Broken faucet, filthy worn out carpet, and smell of stale cigarette smoke in a supposedly non smoking room. Do not stay at this red roof

This property was disgusting! The room smelled like the rugs had never been cleaned. There was mold in the bathroom. The wall paper was peeling off the walls. The sliding glass door to the patio was broken. You could not close it so there was a gap and the only thing holding it shut was a flimsy toggle bolt! not safe for a first floor room!
