I don't think I will be back
August 19, 2019

I've been staying here twice a year for the last few years, it was inexpensive, clean though dated but it was good enough for me, travelling alone to sleep in for a couple of nights. This past weekend I brought my 11 year old son with me, we pulled in Friday night to several groups of young people partying in various rooms, which I ignored because we couldn't really hear them once we got into our room and got settled. Saturday night however we awoke to a double shooting and a parking lot full of police cars, one dead another wounded. I know that these things happen and it's not entirely on the hotel but in hindsight I don't feel like the staff that was there when I checked in had any idea what was going on behind them. As if this wasn't enough the place has gone downhill the last few years, stained carpets, water marks and cracks in the ceiling directly over the bed and no housekeeping other than a few fresh towels tossed into the bathroom.

Third time staying at this Red Roof Inn
August 17, 2019

My husband and had a very nice experience at this hotel. His second time, and my 3rd stay. The staff is courtesy, polite, very upbeat. The room was very clean, bed was exceptional, especially good for my husband's bad back. Breakfast was included and fresh and restocked. We will definitely come back! ❤

Rude Front Desk Staff That Look Like Gang Member
August 11, 2019

My stay was pleasant until I went to check out & return my room key this morning. As I waited to do so, I witnessed a woman being treated rudely by the woman at the front desk named Crystal. I have nothing against having a few tattoos, but Crystal looks like a full fledge GANG MEMBER, with the attitude to match, not a professional representative of any legal business. Anyway, I heard the woman ask to pay for her stay with her free nights. It seemed like Crystal was having a hard time with the computer or something. So after a while, the woman asked if the manager was there or if there was someone else there who could help. Crystal got loud & said the manager isn't coming in and that she would be the only one there all day. By this time, there were several people waiting in the lobby. I was embarrassed for the way that Crystal treated the woman, so I just left my key on the counter & walked out the door.

Stay Away
July 28, 2019

This is one of worst hotels that I have stayed in outside the old Soviet Union. The room was dirty, there was mold in the bathroom, and the toilet was beyond description. There is nothing to say other than stay away

Perfect nights stay
July 11, 2019

Booked on line. Easy access off Interstate 95. There’s cheap gas/convenience store, a Dunkin and a Friendly’s that you can walk too. Etka was super accommodating ... a huge help as I requested a first floor room. THANK YOU! The room was super clean nice bed coffee n micro and the air conditioning cold. Thank you REDROOF NEWARK!
