Reviewed November 28, 2012

I couldn't ask for a better hotel. The rooms are very spacious and well maintained. It's a very great location right off the freeway with plenty of things to do close by and great places for dinner. But I have to say the real reason I choose to stay here with so many other hotels as an option is because of Elise. She takes a lot of pride in her job. Every time you walk in the door you are her number one priority and she makes you feel right at home. I have and always will recommend this property to people staying in this location. Great value for your money and amazing staff.

I always get a a real "lift" to a "long" day , when I'm checking in with Cheryl! She ALWAYS has a great smile and knows you by name! She is the reason why I make it a point to stay there whenever I'm in the area. By the way, the rooms are always clean and neat. Cheryl has that special ability to know how to pick you up after a long day, thanks!!!

The Red Roof in Newark DE was a surprise. After looking at other motels in the area around New Castle Airport I was almost resigned to having an uncomfortable, and expensive, stay. Luckily I found this motel. Also finding coupons at the DE welcome center made my decision to stay a good one. Some of the things I liked about the room: Clean. Very comfortable beds. Plenty of electrical outlets. Quiet. Good temperature control. Free coffee in the lobby. On the downside side there was: Small bathroom (barely enough space to close the door once you're inside). No coffee maker. No fridge. No microwave. Overall this motel is a good choice for the frugal traveler.

Room Tip: Remember to identify yourself if you are 55 or older as they offer a discount.

The hotel actually lives up to the company website billing. It is renovated, roomsa re nicely appointed with upscale sinks, pedestrian furniture and large flat screen tvs. Beds were very comfortable as advertised. The biggest problem is finding the entrance since highway reconstruction closed off the main access. However it is not that hard to find your way in if you pay careful attention.

Room Tip: chose the side away from the highways if you can

Thanks for the great Review! It's wonderful to hear we live up to the hype! We couldn't be more proud of our upscale rooms and product. Our apologies for the local highway construction, detour routes are posted throughout construction areas. Watch for the giant EAT sign of Border's Mexican Cafe and you will find us in no time! I hope you will visit us again soon.- Ben Cummins, General Manager

The Red Roof appeared to have been renovated in the near past, but the floors already showed some wear. Housekeeping was average but not exceptional. This is a bare bones location, there are no room amenities like coffee pots or a small refrigerator. Not even a hair dryer. Coffee and hot water are available in the hotel lobby, not great if you are in a room at the far end of the hotel. There were no meals or continental breakfasts included in the room rate, something to keep in mind when comparing to other hotels that offer a meal with the rate. Location wasn't bad, but there is a LOT of road construction in the area and an exit from the interstate to the hotel was closed. This should improve in a year or two, although DE likes to tear up roads they just worked on.

Recent renovations have made this a very good place to stay. It is clean, comfortable, and well lighted. There are more electrical outlets so that if you are charging phones, cameras, etc., there is not a problem. We like Red Roof Inns because they are dog friendly (no charge) and offer free WiFi. It is a little difficult to find at night if you are not familiar with the area, so it is wise to get directions with respect to stoplights.
