business trip

Difficult hotel to reach from the main highway. Needed to go around twice before I noticed an unmarked access road that paralleled the highway; the hotel was on this access road. Visible from the highway but hard to get to.

Very nice overnight stay.

For the price range, it was a very nice hotel. It was clean, maintenance was up to date with everything I needed. Comfort was above average and unexpected. I would definitely stay there again. After a long drive, I just wanted to relax and turn in early as I had an early appt. the next day. TV selections were to my interest and great reception.

Less than ideal

I would not recommend for women travelers traveling alone. The location is less than ideal and it is not very safe. When I went downstairs the following morning, police were trying to gain entrance into one of the hotel rooms.

Last minute was a good idea!

I made this reservation one day before my mother and daughter were to travel to Durham, NC. I was annoyed at the taxis services and their professionalism when I tried to get my people a cab. I had a very different response when calling the Red Roof Inn staff requesting special care and handling of my mom and daughter when they got there as they would be tired and frustrated. The staff took great care of my family and everything worked out just fine. They loved the area and felt safe and secure while they were there.

Call Charlene's Safe travel cab company if you need wheels. They were a step above all the others.

quick road trip

Had to get to Chapel Hill for a meeting that ran late and then needed to stay over night. The staff was helpful and the room was large and clean. I got extra towels on the spot, and It was right off the highway.

Great Location

We checked in but the attendant said we didn't have a reservation. When I showed her my receipt from the story changed. Three of the rooms were not cleaned yet. It wasn't a problem because we had not intended on staying right away. I'm glad I checked in before I needed the room.
