2/10 Poor

Absolutely a horrible place. After confirming our room multiple times a week before our checked I was greeted to a closed office and told that my room wasn’t never booked (even thought I have phone records and emails for proof) and was turned away in the middle of the night. Management has yet to call and offer compensation or a remedy for there problems that was completely avoidable. Would not recommend this establishment.

2/10 Poor

I never checked in because the rate was changed from the agreed upon rate when booked. Property looked very low scale and safety possibly a concern.

6/10 Good

Some tried to come in our room. Even though the room was locked, and said wrong room, and left right away when they knew someone is in the room. They also charged as a different amount upon arrival.

Half-Way House
The place is a half-way house! Very dirty furniture and no air condition in the room. The lady Liz, site manager, was very nice and refunded me my money when she realized that there was no AC and the furniture was very dirty

Awful stay at red inn
Who ever clean my room went through my things they only fix bed and did nothing else. It didn't make me feel secure to leave my stuff in here for three nights. I didn't know this hotel would be so far away from my job. I wish I can cancel tomorrow and get closer to my usual picks.
