The special that I got last min reservation ,cleanliness,
There weren't any breakfast only coffee. I've stayed at 2star hotels and have received breakfast during my stay.
Upgraded room was very nice with a separate lounge w/ microwave and fridge however I only got the upgrade because the initial room I was assigned had an unmade bed. The front desk addressed it quickly though.
The fact that the room was moist, the a/c not good, I woke up with a sore throat. The sink was not in the bathroom. The tub had a "dip" in the middle & had a Crack in it like too many people stood in the same spot. The lighting was poor even with 6 lamps. You had to go to the front desk for extra linen, the cleaning ladies didn't have any on the cart. Lastly, cause I'm tired of talkin. My cousins room had MOLD on the wall where the sink was that was supposed to be in the bathroom. No maintenance people on site, just a security guard. I will never stay at another red roof inn. They are ratchet & so is the staff.
Stayed quite a few times and we just love it. Great little getaway, very clean, comfortable, and incredible staff. They go above and beyond to assist in any way to make your stay great. Never stayed at such a clean hotel, this is really top notch.
Worn out. Chair ripped at desk.
The staff was really nice! Rooms are extra clean.
We stayed in a room that had the connecting door. My wife and I were trying to sleep, this is already 12:30 AM. There were kids in the next room. Laughing, joking, yelling and screaming really loud. We had to call security to get them to quiet down. Also, this hotel allows dogs. This is the worse idea. Someone with a dog across the hall, couldn't get him to sleep. As a result, he would bark all night. Generally speaking, most people do not have common sense. People would go in and out of their rooms, and allow their doors to slam, waking others in the process. We went out for breakfast. When we returned, our room smelled like marijuana. Someone near our room had smoked up, and the smoke traveled underneath the doors. The bottom line, the price is not bad, the staff is nice and friendly, the rooms are very clean, but some of the people that come to the hotel ruined it for everyone else.
Low price, room and hotel were clean, nice HD TV, free Internet
Wood Floors, no breakfast, limited toiletries
The towels could be a little thicker and larger for shower use.
Red Roof Inn Long Island was basic but clean and quiet. I like that there's a written notice of a no partying rule displayed at the front desk. We just wanted a place to get a good night's rest at a reasonable rate before leaving out of JFK the following day and we got it here. If this is the same thing you're looking for within driving distance of JFK or Manhattan then you won't go wrong with this Red Roof Inn. There's plenty of places to eat nearby.
Beds were comfortable, the room was quiet and the hotel location was close to restaurants and shopping - as well as being easily accessible to expressways.
While there was wireless Internet access the signal was not strong and cell phones could not connect to that network unfortunately. Ice machines on several floors seemed out of order or not working very well. The hotel was functional but basic - one small pkg of kleenex/day, 1 small shampoo pkg/day. Possibly if we asked for more it would have been provided, however.
The location and price was perfect for us. The hotel was clean and facilities acceptable.
The hotel was unable to provide a crib for my 16 month old child. They said they only have one and it was being used. It seems strange that a fairly large hotel only has one crib.
I like the free coffee machine that was in the lobby. My son gets hungry at night and it's nice to know that I can get hot water to make him cup a noodle. Howver, the carpet in the room needs to be clean. Plus, the amenities were not complete. There were only one soap and one shampoo. There were three guests in my room and we only had two towels. But, overall it was a pleasant stay. Would definitely stay again. The price is right.
