    Reasonable

    Although the place is a bit old, it was clean and we felt safe. The staff was friendly and the price was reasonable.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Disgusting and unsafe.

    The area was loaded with drug addicts. It looked like the walking dead was being filmed here. It did not feel safe at all. The bedsheets in both beds in the room either had burn holes or numerous stains on them. I would not recommend this hotel even if it is a few dollars cheaper than other hotels in the area.

    Red Roof Inn - Merchants Rd.

    Good value motel. This is a value motel and based on that category I give it a good rating. Room was updated, good size fridge, parking is easy. Close to major interstate. Bathroom fan needs to be replaced (noisy), but other than was fine.
