first of all, where in the world do we find the $89 deal? I paid $199. and got really bad service when I got there. I messed up my reservation that I made online. I called them to make the changes and everythign was supposedly taken cared of, until I got there 2 weeks later. They told me I double booked. Apparently, Red Roof Inn online and Red Roof Inn, NY is ""different"" for some insane reason. I got into a very heated debate with the manager. He couldn't seem to understand that I didnt' double book and that the receptionist screwed up my reservation. Would not try to compromise. Only whenl I insinuated that my lawyer will just have to fix it did he, at long last, see reason. It took me 30 minutes to fix the problem.
Rooms were alright. location was pretty nice. right in the middle of everything. room smelled like cigarettes eventho it was a non-smoking room. If I hadn't had that problem with that reservation, I would've gladly come back. if you guys make a mistake with the online reservation, when you call to make the changes, MAKE SURE you actually fix it. CALL AGAIN and AGAIN!

I had my doubts about this place given that I have seen what $89/night gets you in New York. I was very impressed by the size of the rooms and bathrooms(by New York standards), the cleanliness, and the overall quality of the hotel. Above this, the staff was nice, the location is great, and I am convinced that it is the best deal in New York city!!!

room rather small. front desk/consiguer unfriendly felt like I was bothering them! Room didn't get cleaned, fuzzy tv, maids noisy, courstey phone rang at 8:00am. Left Sun 1/4/04, couldn't understand him had to ask several time for amount of bill. his expression was ""I don't understand a word you are saying and I really don't care"". helpful hints: * Parking is on the same road as the hotel * don't plan to sleep much, request a room not near phones. * take snacks NO ROOM SEVICE/RESTRAURANT! * get to the ""free"" breakfast by 9:00am very little sitting space. * make own plans.consiguer isn't friendly, doesn't understand ENGLISH and CERTAINLY doesn't seem to want help you! * use bathroom at the last place you visit. lobby closed everytime we came back to the hotel. *purchase a New York Pass card, helps you get around into many of the tourist sights!

OK some simple facts: 1) These rooms are SMALL!! TINY!!! Dont plan on having a guest stop in your room. Ive seen closets bigger then some of these rooms. 2) The location rocks, so you probably wont even be spending any time in your room anyway (other then sleeping, obviously). So if you have a tight budget, want a good location, and dont mind sleeping in a closet with a bathroom the size of a phone booth.....this is the place.

If you are heading to New York this is the ONLY place to stay. The low prices would make you think that the quality would be poor, but the exact opposite is true. The location is perfect for anywhere you want to go in New York, and in the summer you can walk to most major attractions. (I do not recommend walking in the winter I have tried and it sucks) Make sure you check with the conciegre before you head out to your event to see if they have discount tickets. We had a fabulous weekend the first time we stayed there, and this hotel played a major role. We will be going back.

We did get the $89 rate. Our (clean) room can easily, however, fit in my bathroom at home. No joke. No jumping jacks in here! As soon as we opened the door, our first step hit the bed. Try not to get a room that ends in 10. The continental breakfast has no personality. If you are use to staying at a budget hotel with decent free breakfast (e.g. Fairfield Inn), you will be disappointed. No cereal! Only plain oatmeal. The front desk staff are soooo poorly trained. Can I get a "" Hello, Welcome to the Red Roof Inn"" or ""How was your stay""...or maybe a half-smile? But hey for $89 per night, I will not waste my time complaining. You get what you pay for.

When my other accomodations were not working out, I was lucky enough to come across the Red Roof Inn. Although I had no reservations and it was the weekend before Thanksgiving, they were able to give me a room immediately at a really great rate. I was very glad to find this hotel and will definately stay there again.

Stayed at the Red Roof Inn last month (September 2002) on the company dime and was pleasantly surprised. Great location near Times Square, though a little touristy...but the subway is just a few blocks away. Coffee by your bedside with Internet enabled cable television was a nice way to stay in bed till late in the morning. The bathroom was by far the best part--what a great shower! The concierge was always helpful and the staff remarkably pleasant. Wish I could afford to stay there more often, but I visit this place only for a couple of days on business trips. I will surely come with my wife and spend a long weekend to relax as I found the hotel very economically priced. Its a good bargain and true value for money.
