This place is terrible. The first impression is accurate. Keep driving. The rooms are run down with stains on the carpet, old screw holes in the walls. Cigarette burns in the sheets, and tubs that do not drain. The staff does nothing to correct any problems that are reported, and the breakfast is mediocre at best. Nothing like other Choice... More

Pros: check in star was very friendly. Room was comfortable and clean. Cons: while clean, there was quite a bit of wear and tear. Carpet could use a good shampoo. Cracked tiles. Water pressure not the best. WiFi signal was horrible. The thing that made me drop from three to two stars was that two days in a row, maid... More

Because there was an event at the Univ. campus, all the other hotels were booked so got a room at the Rodeway. When you first pull into this place, it becomes quite apparent why the room was so much cheaper than the other hotels in the area. This hotel looks like the abandoned building beside it--sidewalks cracked and unswept, weeds... More

We came for one night only. The room has been partly refurbished. It was clean. The pool was closed probably for a long period. It's really close from the highway. So, for a one night stop it is a good choice. No breakfast offered but there's a Dunkin Donuts nearby. Not much more to say.

Least expensive hotel along I-95 in the area. Room was clean and comfortable. The room with the free breakfast had plenty of fresh things to eat. It ain't the Marriott but for the money you can't go wrong. Nice morning staff.

I booked this room for the cheap price. I looked at the available reviews and since most of them seemed ok, I thought I would chance it got a night. The old adage of "you get what you pay for" was in full effect. When I got to the motel I noticed the abandoned restaurant next door and the almost... More

This hotel is a in great location for travel, just off the I-95 exit in Newark. Perfect spot if you are visiting the University of Delaware. Also, you have access to two different public bus systems. I found it very easy to get everywhere I needed to go. Several restaurants and convenience stores are close by if you need something... More

I rated this Inn as "Excellent" because although I've been to more modern and updated motels, the reliable and kind service I received was much more important to me. I stayed one night and it seems I left my wallet with cash and bank cards in the bed. I think my pocketbook turned over. I did not know until I... More
