friendly staff but hotel was dirty people loads scary
Plus/Minus - Red Roof Inn & Syutes Newark - Univer
We were visiting for our daughters College Graduation. Lodging was limited in the area. The Red Roof Inn had the room availability at a VERY REASONABLE overall average daily rate. Upon arrival we noticed a great deal of construction going on at the property as well as next door. The desk clerk was very helpful and polite. Another staff member was working to assist a customer who had been staying there on business and needed to extend his stay despite the heavy bookings for the Graduation. The clerk PROACTIVELY provided a printed map showing us the best routes during the graduation period and best way to avoid the area construction. OVERALL STAFF RATIING 5 Stars, A+ or however you want to rate as Excellent .
* The odors in the hall (I think years of smoke) * Pillows were very small and flat (almost like throw pillows) * Room was clean yet a little "funky" * This was a "suite", but you could really only view TV from bedroom area (room divided by 7/8th wall the hid bed from couch * Pool area not opened (due to construction - assuming will reopen) * Room was sparse and had aging furniture that has seen better days (you get what you pay for) * Pull out couch - Elaine from Seinfeld would have found Jerry's parents pull out comfortable compared to the one in the room (Hope some of you get the reference - if not Google it - Very Funny)
Last resort motel
We have stayed in worse hotels… But we can't remember when. The hotel is rundown, worn and houses many long term section 8 residents. There are many better hotels near the University of Delaware and we only booked this one as we needed a large number of rooms for graduation and no other hotels were available. Given the opportunity, I would choose just about any other hotel over this one
ups and downs
The price was good.
Housekeeping needs to take more time and making sure the room is clean, behind the ded was hair and a booger on the wall it felt stuffy and damp, the price was good but won't go again the room number was 142
Sign on door asking people to take off scarves and other materials covering their faces- made me feel unsafe.
Breakfast really not much of a one. Waffle is only hot food offered. We brought our own bananas to have with cereal at breakfast. Two cereals were offered both high in sugar. Wallpaper was coming down in our room, beds were poorly made. Hotel is very worn and needs some money put into it.
The staff was very kind and attentive.
The hotel was a confusing maze and my bathroom wasnt very clean.
The smell of the room was mildewish
It was located conveniently to my destination each day, Breakfast was included daily and consisted of a good variety of item including hot waffles, pancakes, fruit, cereals, hardboiled eggs, and several other items - very good. hotel is old but very clean and fairly quiet. Will stay with them again.
room had 2 beds and one chair, would like to see more chairs. breakfast was served at 6AM weekdays and 7AM Saturday & Sunday, We needed to leave before 7 and would like to see serving begin at 6 on Saturday also.

have to take four/five steps to get to rooms- with luggage- not really easy
it was very friendly and family orientated, staff well mannered. the room was very cozy, the service was great.
The $15.00 per day parking charge.
