TripAdvisor Ratings

Average at best
October 30, 2018

Didn't have many chooses for last minute stay in Newark for homecoming. Room was dingy and probably not upgraded for a couple decades. Bed was OK. Halls had been refinished. OK I guess for a place to lay our heads. But average at best.

Genuinely Caring for their Guests
October 29, 2018

It's not often you find accomodations that are not family owned where ALL the staff clearly care about their job and their clients. Red Roof Inn in Newark exemplefies this dynamic. Makes a huge difference. Keep up the good work guys.

Never Again
October 17, 2018

This hotel is old, dirty and smells bad. We made the mistake of booking a 2 night stay and quickly regretted it after seeing the property. We tried to get out of our reservation but they had pre-charged us at check-in and said our money was non-refundable. For them to charge the price they did for Parent’s weekend at the University of Delaware and then so quickly deny our request for a refund is criminal. Be warned! Go and check out the rooms prior to paying. You will thank me later.

Friendly and nice place to stay
October 14, 2018

The people at the front desk very extremely pleasant and very accommodating! Cleanest windows we’ve ever seen looked like there was no glass on the glass door in viewing the outside!! Good breakfast included and very reasonably priced. Would go back!!

They hate autism
October 12, 2018

I was traveling with my two autistic children this summer and made the mistake of stopping at this hotel. As soon as the front desk clerk spotted my boys she became extremely ill-tempered. She placed us in a room next to a group of marijuana lovers and sent the room service personnel to check on us five times in one afternoon. When I went to her to complain she told me I was free to take my children to any other hotel in the area. Of course I did. Anyone traveling with a person with intellectual disabilities should absolutely avoid this establishment at all cost
