TripAdvisor Ratings

Best Redroof inn I have ever stayed in
July 14, 2018

I was very pleased with this hotel. Traveling with family. Comfortable, friendly staff and front desk. Very clean and breakfast was good. I would recommend this hotel anytime! Thank you for a great nights sleep.

Clean Place to Rest
July 10, 2018

Room was clean. We were in the "back" building which was a bit out of the way. The other buildings had balconies on the rooms, ours did not. The front desk was busy with phones ringing however we were checked in efficiently, Room was also spacious and comfortable. Some of the furnishing could use updated (desk, sofa). Overall a decent place to stay for a night.

One of the best Red Roofs I have been to
July 05, 2018

This is a family-friendly hotel with a no alcoholic drink policy - the first time I was aware of such a policy at a Red Roof or elsewhere - maybe I just hadn't noticed - but perhaps in a college town that is prudent. Very well-lit parking lot. Noise not excessive from nearby road. A very friendly staff, comfortable bed, big pillows. Clean, well-equipped, large breakfast area that is conscientiously attended. Did not expect this level of service and quality at this price. If only all Red Roof Inns could follow this model.

Has a college dorm feel!
June 12, 2018

We stayed here for a single night on our way to Atlantic City, and aside from the card accidentally deactivating due to my phone messing with the magnetic strip, everything went smoothly! The room was very comfortable and had a similar feel to a college dormitory. It was clean and relaxing to stay in, and the service I received from the front desk staff was well-appreciated! ♡ I called in to check if coming in late was okay, and the front desk clerk was an angel! She provided me all the information I needed and ensured everything would be okay. My only negative is that the breakfast variety was limited, and the danish they carry is far too sweet (which isn't much of a complaint anyways, considering how everything else was delightful). We really enjoyed our stay and will consider this hotel if we need to stop on our way to Atlantic City again. This place was a proper safe haven after a stressful drive!

Got a good night's rest
June 12, 2018

The staff is so friendly and willing to help. They really work together as a team to ensure every guest has a good experience and bring life to the property. The hotel is in a great location just off of the exit, surrounded by restaurants, gas stations, and the University of Delaware is about ten minutes away. There's a Wal-Mart, Wells Fargo, and US Post Office within fifteen minutes of the hotel. Each room has a microwave, fridge, Wi-Fi, flat screen TV with cable, HDMI, and ISB ports, and a work station. The rooms are clean and the beds are medium in softness. Very comfortable pillows and clean (spot-free) linen. You can tell the staff takes pride in keeping this place up. There were a few reports of the halls smelling like smoke but the staff has clearly worked diligently to keep the smoke- free halls smelling good. The bathrooms was free of stains and is stocked with complimentary shampoo, conditioner, lotion, body soap, and hand soap. More of the travel size toiletries are available at the front desk. The halls are well lit with a sitting area near the side entrance of the hotel. There are sitting areas throughout the halls for guest to relax and read. There's a workout room and a breakfast nook downstairs. They offer coffee, apple juice, orange juice, boiled eggs, danishes, white bread, wheat bread, oatmeal, grits, apples, oranges, and waffles for breakfast. They also have a laundry room, vending machines, and even snacks for sale at the front desk. The only thing they don't have is a pool. I would love to stay here again. I'm a truck driver and I was only here for two days. I had an amazing experience here.
