Celebrate with Red Roof as they reach a special milestone

 

When you travel it’s important that you find a hotel that suits your needs and one that provides you with the comforts of home.

When I was younger my family and I traveled a lot. We stayed at a lot of hotels. Some hotels were awesome and offered a lot of perks, and other hotels were just lackluster. I spent many summers staying at several different hotels during the course of our summer vacation from school.

As an adult, I don’t travel as much as I did, but finding the right hotel is still important to me.

One popular hotel chain – Red Roof – recently reached a big milestone just this past year. They opened their 500th Inn in  Biloxi, Mississippi.

I stayed at Red Roof many times when I was a young adult. My boyfriend lived way upstate (a 6 hour drive from where I lived) so we used to meet half way for the weekend at stay at a Red Roof. I’ve had nothing but positive experiences with the hotel chain.

In addition to opening their 500th Inn, Red Roof also opened their 50th PLUS+ property.

The celebrate, Red Roof is offering travelers some great incentives, including 500 RediCard bonus points.

To take advantage of this great incentive, you simply need to sign up for Red Roof’s loyalty program, RediCard, and register for the 500th Property Promotion to get rewarded. You’ll be able to earn 500 bonus points on your very first stay at any Red Roof location up until February 28, 2017.

The Red Roof loyalty program, RediCard, is the richest in the industry, rewarding members with free nights with only 6,000 points and many other exclusive offers and services.

You must be registered in order to be eligible to receive the bonus points. Non-members can click to join; then register to receive all the benefits. The 500 bonus points will be added to the member’s account after completion of their paid stay. There is a limit of one bonus per member.

My husband and I recently spend a night at a nearby Red Roof PLUS+ location.

Every now and then my husband and I like to get away – even if it’s just overnight. We live in a tiny condo and have to sleep on a sofa bed in the living room. There are times we simply want to get away – just the two of us (like a “date night”). Having the opportunity to sleep in an actual bed is also wonderful.

We traveled up to Poughkeepsie, New York to spend the night at Red Roof. It’s located in an ideal location – very close to plenty of restaurants, the mall and local movie theater.

We were very impressed with how kind and courteous the young lady at the front desk was upon our arrival. Check in was quick and easy. She even let us know about some local restaurants that we might be interested in checking out.

There are different room options available – regular, supreme and premium. We were in a premium room. The premium room came with these amazing perks.

Our room was incredibly spacious. It was almost too much room for just two people to spend one night. Living in a tiny condo it was a nice change of pace to have such ample room.

Our room came with a huge desk, flat screen television, coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator. It’s would be a great room to stay in if you needed an extended stay. The fridge came in handy for my left over dinner.

I’ve stayed in a lot of hotels, which means I have slept in a lot of hotel beds. The bed we had at Red Roof was by far the most comfiest bed I have slept in. It wasn’t too hard. It wasn’t too soft. It was just right. It also wasn’t very high off the ground. I don’t like “high beds.” I always feel like I am going to roll out of it.

Whenever we visit a hotel the first thing my husband and I do is check out the bed. Like I said earlier, we sleep on a sofa bed, so having a real bed is a big deal for us. The bed at Red Roof was so comfortable that we didn’t want to get out of it to go get something to eat. We both looked forward to coming back to the room to jump back into the bed. Even the comforter and pillow were “just right.”

The room had a nice, modern look to it but at the same time it felt “homey,” if that makes any sense?

I like how Red Roof supplied us with a wealth of information, which was found on the night stand next to the bed.

We checked out the fridge when we first got into our room. Inside we found a box. We opened the box and found a bottle of water, orange juice, microwave popcorn and other goodies. We assumed they were the kind of treats that you have to pay extra for. Just to be on the safe side we checked with the front desk on our way out to get dinner. The nice lady at the front desk told us they were complimentary for premium hotel guests.

WOW! That was a pleasant surprise. At most hotels you have to pay for those types of goodies. I wish more hotels would offer freebies like this for guests. Thank you Red Roof! That was a pleasant surprise.

Nice size fridge. It kept things really cold.

What’s inside the box?

Yum! Water, juice, microwave popcorn, granola bars and more!

My husband and I really enjoyed our overnight visit to Red Roof. The staff was friendly, the bed was AMAZING, it was quiet (no noisy guests), the room was well appointed, the goodies were a nice surprise and we were able to enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast in the morning.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we plan on staying there again in the summer time (another weekend getaway).
