Sleazy, lying Management; rude and disrespectful
December 05, 2019

Two seniors Driving from New England, we received a call from Red Roof around 3 pm telling us we could not stay that night with our standard poodles as planned. I was shocked, as I had called ahead to get approval for our two therapy dogs, and a younger one in training. I had also confirmed two days before arrival with the front desk, who were again friendly and welcoming of the dogs. As I started to explain, I was quickly transfered to the manager. Why were we being turned away, and why so late? Not only had we received prior approval, but the manager confirmed we had stayed there two years ago with our two dogs. Yet, he just continued to play “broken record”, Repeating, “m’am, i just told you our policy only allows one dog”. As i continued to question, he became very angry and told me we are banned from the property (like he thought we would show up?) And then he hung up the phone. It is outrageous that this manager refused to answer reasonable questions, and was so rude and disrespectful. Do not believe any info you receive from them. What’s sad is the desk person was welcoming and lovely. Too bad these places are controlled by distant managers ruining their reputation.

Ekta was very pleasant and helpful. Room was very clean and quiet. Easy off easy on highway. Very convenient fly located. Friendly's right next door with 10 % discount with room key. Will stop again in our travels.

Stay Away!

Do not book! All other hotels were booked for UD family weekend, so we resorted to Red Roof. Smelled of cigarettes in a non-smoking room, hallways were musty, room appeared dirty, air unit did not work properly, and ROACHES. Yes, found a live roach in the bathroom. All carpets need to be replaced in the motel - they are gross. Next time I would gladly take the ride from Wilmington to stay in a CLEAN hotel if all others in Newark were booked. There was a reason why this hotel still had vacancies. Lesson learned.

Everyone was helpful, friendly and pleasant. Breakfast was enjoyable. The location was very convenient from the highway - easy on and easy off. My room was clean and had no unpleasant odors. After encountering heavy truck traffic all day I was so pleased to have found this Red Roof Inn when I gassed my vehicle. I would consider making a point of staying here again.

She was very courteous and helpful. She answered all my questions and help me sign up for the rewards program. She done a great job. The way she acted made me change my business of booking hotels to red roof Inn. I was looking for a new hotel and she made up my mind.
