Everything was great. Two comments:
1) The whirlpool was hot, but no jets. Never seen that before. Still felt nice.
2) The room lights were motion sensors, which was maddening. Turn it off, move and some turned back on.
Location of the hotel is very convenient. The staff was very friendly and did everything to make our stay as great as possible. The room was clean, but definitely needs a face lift. I would recommend as a convenient and inexpensive option, but definitely not for someone who is looking for a luxurious stay.
Never staying at a Red Roof Inn before, I thought I'd try it because it was convenient for my desired location. Was very pleased with the staff and room. Did experience difficulty with the key card. There was very little weather stripping under the entrance door so it was sometimes hard to maintain a comfortable atmosphere while away to come back to a too cool or too warm a room but was quickly corrected.
The Italian Renaissance-style state capitol building attracts attention. Two bridges link downtown with City Island Park on the Susquehanna River. Food stands at the historic Broad Street Market offer fresh produce and an array of cuisines. The Whitaker Center contains an interactive science museum, theater, and IMAX. Visitors to the National Civil War Museum learn about both sides of the war.
