I stayed here for 3 weeks while looking for a house due to a job transfer from Texas. All of the staff was great but Delmy stood out from all the rest. She was alway polite, courteous and had a smile ready to greet you when you walked through the door. She help me navigate my way around a new city by giving me or printing out directions to places I needed to go. She made wonderful suggestions on places to eat.

Room Tip: The average rating for cleanliness was only due to they were remodeling the rooms and they had large...

The receptionist Delmy was very nice, sympathetic and cordial at the same time. I got to the hotel too early for check-in but I needed to be online for my work and she understood my situation . She worked with me so I didn’t have rush in frantic to find another hotel.

Tried to check in at 2:45 pm and was told that check in was not until 3:00. Clerk said to come back at 3:00 and she would see if a room was available. Went back to lobby at 3:00 and was told that room was not ready and I should come back at 3:30. Really? So if I come back at 3:30 are you going to tell me to come back at 4:00? When I ask how it was possible that not one room was clean at 3:10 pm. I was told that there was other hotels in the area and I could leave and go to one of them. Are you kidding me? Really? You don't need my business? Maybe that is why your parking lot and rooms are empty! The clerk was as rude and mean as anyone I have ever seen in the hospitallity business, she was actually hostile and very argumentative. There was no way I was going to stay here after my confrontation with this angry person! I'm still trying to figure out why someone with this type of personality would ever be in the hotel business. I know that I cannot be the first person to complain about this woman being so unaccommodating. I decided to leave and went to the Red Roof Inn in Hanover, Md. and found that the staff there was just the opposite, very friendly, and efficient. Also the hotel is much nicer and cleaner and in a much better neighborhood. If you have to choose between these two hotels, the choice should be very easy!

I just wanted to reach out to you once again and apologize for the experience you had while trying to check in our property. Although we are under renovation I feel terrible that you feel you were not treated like a valued guest and that we were not able to accommodate you at that time.

You are a valued guest to us, hopefully you will return so we can show you a better experience.


Sincerely,

I have stayed at other RR locations and prefer this one, primarily because of staff. There are two employees, Sharvonne and Laverne who provide excellent service. They are willing to talk to customers even when tired and dealing with other people. I noticed they are always checking and organizing the lobby and adding treats for guests to pick up who are getting coffee or waiting for their transaction to be completed. They are clear when explaining policies, rooms and rates. They go out their way to make guests comfortable. I'd recommend this location to others.

The nonsmoking nose knows when a room has been recently smoked in and Room 216 is such a room. Since we arrived tired after midnight we lived with it and it was not overpowering; but such a room should no longer be listed as non-smoking.
Room had partial upgrade: mid size fridge; microwave; safe; large screen TV but not the wood look floor or new sink,also new plastic stairs.
King room has lots of space for dog crate. Dog walking much safer in back as front has small grassy area east of parking lot then grass drops off to USHwy 1.
Really basic amenities: soap, shampoo, not even Red Roof tissues here. This motel did participate in Cyber Monday 30% off sale so chose it over preferred LaQuinta

We were traveling with a young couple who did not want to spend much on hotel rooms and we had stayed in a nice Red Roof Inn the night before in Virginia. By comparison, this was like a different chain. It was a motel style where the other was a nice looking hotel. The other included breakfast, this one did not. The room in this one was much smaller. We could barely pass each other in the room. The heat was hard to regulate. We had it on around 70 degrees, and woke up around 2 AM in a sweltering room. The air conditioner had been turned off, so we turned off the heat, turned on the fan and opened the door to the outside. It was below freezing and we fanned the room with the door. The funny thing was that the other couple said that they got up around 2:00 and had to open the door and fan the room. The people were nice enough, but it just wasn't a good quality, even for the low price.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your experience at our property, it is only through valued guest like yourself that we are able to see where we can improve ourselves for our guest.

I realize you stayed at one of the New Gen properties which must have been a very pleasant stay! Just so you know we are also expecting the same or similar renovation in the upcoming New Year.

Thank you for staying with us! We look forward to your return in the near future.
