Donald Guarisco from Allmovie criticized the film's cinematography, "amateurish performances", "limp" pacing, and direction. Guarisco concluded his review by writing, "The Girl In Room 2A is such an uninspired proposition that even hardcore giallo fans might want to think twice about watching it."[1] Sean Becktel from wrote, "The Girl in Room 2A seems to know exactly what it is, and to cater to it’s [sic] audience. It achieves a formulaic deliverance, while staying fun, enjoyable, and ultimately entertaining."[2] Terror Trap gave the film 2.5 out of 4 stars, stating the film was "at times incomprehensible" but still great fun.[3] Brett Gallman from Oh, the Horror valeld it "one of the more dull and dry entries of the genre".[4]
