Welcome to Red Roof® & Red Roof PLUS+®
We opened the first Red Roof in Columbus, Ohio, in 1973 with the goal to provide travelers with simplicity and economy without compromising quality. Today, Red Roof has over 500 properties across the United States and is growing internationally with 3 locations open in Brazil, 1 PLUS+ property open in Osaka, Japan and others to follow in Thailand and Canada. And our customers are even more impressed with the value and comfort of our newly designed NextGen® rooms being implemented across the country—featuring flat-screen TVs, contemporary furnishings, plush new bedding, and spa-inspired bathrooms.
Red Roof introduced franchising in late 1996 to accelerate the expansion of the chain. Today, while 100% of Red Roof Inn locations are franchised, we continue to manage almost 26% of the brand*. So our owner/operator perspective continues to guide our decision making and keeps the brand focused on the same goals as our franchisees.
In 2014 we introduced Red Roof PLUS+, designed for guests seeking more value and an enhanced experience, but engineered for economy segment efficiency.
