Red Roof PLUS+ Philadelphia Airport

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had bad time, felt very unsafe. Room was very tight...uncomfortable for my like. I wish I had cancelled then staying for 3 and half hours.

Just disappointed I expected more I staved in the area two weeks prior for $20 less thought this would be more convenient but sacrificed a lot of comfort and a higher price

The rooms need to be updated. The carpets were stained (even had gum stuck on one of the rugs in between the beds) and not tacked down (the carpet when you came into the room was not tacked down completely). The faucet on the bathroom sink was loose and moved every time you turned the water on and off. The toilet handle was loose and caused the toilet to constantly run. Light bulbs were out in fixtures and on the bed lamps. I might suggest that when the rooms are being cleaned that the doors get closed to the outside as we had a squirrel or something come in and munch on our pretzels and chips. The bags were eaten through and whoever cleaned our room just put them back and cleaned up the salt spilled. The bolt on the door was broken and hanging by one screw. Heaters make a dripping sound when they are running. We did get moved to a new room (which had issues as well) when we told the front desk about the visitor to our room and upon check out we were also credited the movies that we watched in our room. The staff was very apologetic and kind.

The Hotel was easy to find, room was clean except for the bathroom which clearly had not been cleaned after the previous guest used the toilet I remedied that myself.

Never got my wake up call almost missed my fflight and they don't tell you no shuttle. To airport

Rude staff. Loud. Right by the highway. Don't go there. A little dirty.

Decided to move from downtown to the Red Roof to be closer to the airport to catch an early am flight. Wasn't a good idea, but for the purpose it worked. Won't recommend beyond that. Room felt damp and had a smell.

However, each of my three nights found me killing insects (spiders and something that looked like a centipede). Also, staff person banged on the door at 8am and then tried to enter while I was sleeping. Based upon photos in Orbitz, I was expecting something along the line of a comfort inn. This is a motor lodge.

The hotel was filthy there wer yellows brown stains on the sheets and a large hole in the wall that had been patched over. Upon arrival my room wasn't ready they tried to give me a double bed room and when I went to the room it hadn't even been cleaned sheets pulled all off the bed

Our room was fine. The bathroom was really smal but we managed. The lock on our door to our room was extremely hard to work and took several minutes to close when leaving out .

Sort of a given that you shouldn't leave items in a hotel, but I think it's reasonable to expect a degree of professionalism from the staff. Sad to say, I left an external hard drive behind and called to find it unreturned. Big mistake on my part for missing such a valuable item on my exit, but an even bigger mistake in trusting this hotel staff to be honest and professional. (I know that I left it at the hotel because that was the last place I took it out before finding it missing.)

Lady working the evening I was there, Janet, was very friendly and so helpful. Got there on a Sunday afternoon and had a very difficult time getting a cab to pick me up at the hotel so I could check out a few places. Waited almost from 7:30 to 9:00 for a cab. But, cheap and close ride to/from airport. Neat and tidy room but very tiny and terrific rate.

Stayed before and early flight the next day. A good price fairly clean and comfortable but there was Trash behind the nightstand

The hotel was fine. We were just in PHL for the night before an early morning flight. Hotel is close to the airport and clean. Rooms are basic but in good condition. We've stayed here twice previously, and will continue to book in the future.

Never had any problems, room cheap n clean. Good value for the money and close and easy to airport.

Right next to the airport -- but NO shuttle service...cab was reasonable -- front desk at check in nothing like being made to feel like you were bothering them !!

This hotel is an average hotel if you need to stay for a couple of nights. You definitely need a car if you are staying here. It is 20 mins away from downtown, Philadelphia. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay can be convenient. I really dont like Red Roof`s baths but is average and usually clean.

If you are on a low budget this hotel is a great buy.

Getting to the airport is very easy -- great for a 6am flight. The room was plan, but clean with the necessary amenities. The check-in was *very* fast. I would stay there again under the same circumstances.

Had to fly out of the airport and needed a place to spend the night. This place was great, enjoyed the room and the staff.
