Family stay gone wrong
April 28, 2019

I’ve been staying here for a couple months as I look for a new place to live at first they were accommodating... few days go by we hear squeaking .. ignore it for a while then we see rat droppings tell the manager he says we will look into it but he more so listens to respond, rather than hear you. He only worries about money not the quality of his place he lives there along with his family and relatives they try to get in even if there is a don’t disturb sign room service supervisor is a completely disrespectful person. Fast forward to today we just got back from Florida where we stayed at a wonderful hotel named main gate in Kissimmee.. so today we had reserved another night this guy decides to say no you have to get out with my two kids and my dog and all luggage he was upset that when we left my dog had left a tiny mess outside on the balcony I forgot to check but he wasn’t concerned with the pounds of rat crap all in every drawer. The health department needs to check this place and red roof should seriously look into this franchise because it’s poorly ran by a man of little to no character. DONT GO HERE !

Horrible experience
April 24, 2019

First, we are traveling and arrived late night, with two kids. We were looking for an easy on/off highway that was clean and reasonably priced. When we arrived and checked in to our room it smelled horribly of urine. When we went back to the front desk to say something they upgraded our room to a suite which was equally horrible but didn’t smell, so we slept for a few hours. There were holes in the walls, the side tables were dirty and sticky, the room smelled of cigarettes (even though it was a nonsmoking room), the couch had burn marks in it, the bathroom sink didn’t drain and had nasty stuff in it and the shower was moldy and dirty. This morning, we called requesting two additional towels and face cloths, and the desk said but you just checked in. Well, there are four of us and two towels/face cloths not four. They said they would bring some up. 35 min later still no items, when we called back they said housekeeping had just gotten in. So we went down to desk to get the items ourself. When arriving in lobby, the housekeeping team was hanging out in the public lobby chatting, which is discouraging to see when a hotel is in the business of service. We are in the service industry, and run a lodging facility. I understand that things happen and nothing is ever perfect but this experience was compounded with multiple failures.

On point with price and cleanliness
April 13, 2019

Tired of the 'budget' motels where the keep you up half the night with loud parties and a never ending stream of people outside your door? Tired of the high motel bills you have to pay just to get a decent nights sleep? If so, then go Red Roof off College Ave. Clean rooms, helpful staff, great price.

unexplained animosity from manager
April 01, 2019

This hotel is a mixed bag. The location is not bad, but the breakfast is at times sub- par with jellies that are stale and bitter. The room I was given had a strange TV on which ads appeared covering a third of the screen. The irascible manager claimed that all the TVs had this annoying feature but I was able to change rooms with the late night clerk and of course they were normal. One female receptionist was warm and personable while another was cold and forbidding. Everyone except the odd maintenance man was from India. Rates depended on when you booked. The hotel fills up at times because of events at nearby Delaware U,

Great stay.
