    Thin WALLS. Felt like extended stay from that respect.

    Price. HYATT Pissed me off and wanted to charge $139 plus tax. I think Red Roof was around $50 and was nice enough to get the job done. The “FREE” breakfast is nothing compared to HYATT. But if you offered the same quality or better FREE breakfast that HYATT offered and raised room rates to cover it. Maybe $10/ night. If you advertised that hard, I think you would kick ASS. Little gimmicks go along ways and Red Roof is clean enough right now to get the job done.

    When checking in, they have you sign a waiver. We had a non smoking room. So if we smoked in it we would be charged $700. We walked into our room. It reaked of smoke. I called the desk, they promptly came and put an air freshener in the air conditioner. The bathroom was microscopic. The sink was clogged and ran slow. There weren't any brochures for local restaurants. Everything was bare minimum. I guess you get what you pay for here.

    The staff was friendly, helpful and quick to address any concerns. Location was great.

Property was advertised as recently renovated and everything in the room interior definitely reflected the newness - bed, floors, bath and vanity area, electrical outlets, etc. For a 10 hr stay, definitely met my needs.
