An OK place

I have children attending college in Kalamazoo so I have visited the city several times. I have stayed in a number of different motels. I spend most of the time with the kids so the hotel is really just for sleeping. For this trip I was upgraded to a "King's Room", featuring King's size bed, work desk, refrigerator and microwave. That was nice. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The only real problems were with the staff. Upon arriving I asked for an extra blanket. The front desk said they would send one right up. I waited over an hour without receiving one before having to go out. I stopped at the desk and picked one up hours later. The cleaning staff in the morning was quite loud. I like to sleep in a bit but was awakened by them pounding on neighboring doors before 9 each morning asking if they needed service. There were no "Do Not Disturb" signs available. They also were noisy wheeling their carts around. They also always left an empty laundry cart at the bottom of the stairs in the morning, partially blocking the exit. On a previous stay there I was able to use the neighboring gym, the mote itself has no exercise facilities. I asked about it this trip and the staff said they didn't know if that was still possible.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Had the worst omelet I've ever eaten at "Sophia's House of Pancakes." They brag it's made with 5 eggs, which I think is too many. No option for fewer so I left a lot of it. I ordered a Swiss cheese omelet and it came with one tiny slice of cheese on the outside of the omelet where it stuck to the dish. I had to scrap it off with a fork. The omelet itself was unusual "fluffy" and without flavor.

Not at all what I expected

I visited Kalamazoo to tour the breweries and spend some time with a family member who attends WMU, so I booked a night at the Red Roof Inn. There were only a couple places that I found that were < $100/night, and Red Roof appeared to be in the best location. Next time, I'll spend more to stay somewhere nicer. The room itself was very small, and didn't seem clean. I found several stains and marks on the sheets when I pulled back the comforter, which was an instant deal-breaker. To their credit, the front desk was able to give me a new set of sheets - however there was no available rooms to move me to, and they don't have a housekeeping staff available (they presumably are only there for a couple hours in the morning to go room-to-room), so I had to deal with it myself. The bathroom was clean, but was almost comically small - the tub/shower takes up over half of the room, and there is barely room to sit on the toiler (It reminded me of an airplane bathroom honestly). Very disappointed in my stay, but at least at least the city of Kalamazoo was fun.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange is < 10 min drive, and is a great time. After 6pm, beer prices 'fluctuate' based on what people are currently buying, and you can get some really nice deals on microbrews.

Good Room, Good, Value

Make Reservations for two room. Both rooms were clean and comfortable for the one night we stayed. I would definitely stay there again.

Not horrible, not worth the money

It was a fine stay, however, I felt it was very overpriced for what it was.

Never again!!

We were given a handicap room when nobody in family was handicapped even though motel was less than half full !!! We couldn't park in front of room since we did not have a handicap sticker!! When checking out, we asked the clerk "Why a handicap room?" Never could figure out her answer!! Never this Red Roof again!!

Could've been cleaner

Overall we had no issues with the hotel. The only thing that troubled us was that the bed had many really long hairs in it as well as smaller hairs in the sheet which appeared to be animal hairs. It was unsettling.

Quick trip

I have been choosing this hotel for the past years on my kalamazoo visit. The hotel is very quiet. Nice people. Everyone is considerate of one another. The location is perfect. The staff is always accommodating & friendly. They make check in very easy and pleasant. although it is an outside entrance, parking is plentiful & the area surrounding building is clean & good scenery. I will continue to choose this location for all the listed reasons.
