“They allow dogs at no charge...”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

That is the only nice thing I can say about this hotel. I waited for the front desk person to continue arguing with a personal matter on the phone. When she finally started to check me in, there were other people waiting and she yelled out my phone number and room number a few times. Two things that were just awful for people to hear, personal information and room numbers are never to be said out loud. The woman has a very loud speaking voice and therefore everyone could hear everything...ugh. The room was dirty, carpet not vacuumed, tub had hairs and was dirty...the carpet had to be older than I am. It was musty and dated. The outside was very dirty with trash everywhere. It didn't feel safe either as there were questionable people staying there. There were a couple men that stopped at my window to look in! Jeesh...creepy and rude.

Being a vacation area, hotels are expensive here so even though I read the negative reviews my wallet prevailed. If you can go elsewhere then you should. Otherwise just be observant and alert to your surroundings. I didn't go out after dark, got in and that was it. The police were there twice during my stay, I'm not sure for what as I didn't hang around to find out.

If you can afford it then stay else where.

Room Tip: It looks like some of the rooms were updated with faux wood floors or newer carpet, I would suggest...

The room was so disgusting. There were bugs, actual balls of dust that you know had been there a while, holes in the wall, smelled like mildew, had mold in the bathtub, carpet left your feet black, etc... That is just the tip of a HUGE iceberg. The outside of the hotel is covered with trash and cigarette butts everywhere. The pool actually had band-aids and trash floating in it. One of the most out-dated and dirty places I have ever entered. In hindsight I wish I had asked for a refund shortly after checking in. Do yourself a favor and pay more money to stay anywhere else!!!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay at the hotel! Stay anywhere else. I can't imagine a worse room elsewhere!!!!!

Pet friendly, pets are free which I think is really cool, they are starting to modernize their rooms! Nice pool area, decent free breakfast, great AC and somewhat clean. Double bed rooms are not updated as of yet, the king bed supreme rooms are, plenty of ice machines for those that are not fortunate to get a mini fridge, if this is important request it! Good bang for your buck.

Room had two double beds and reservations were for four people. Only had two towels. Lots of loud kids at the pool unattended. The grounds were horrible. Parking was bad and scary. The room smelled molded and the fridge was rusted. The shower had lots of mildew. The toilet looked as if it hadn’t been cleaned in months and the floor looked dirty. Bedspread had burn holes in them. Pay a little extra somewhere else and feel safe and clean.

Room Tip: Don't book here.

Very disappointing hotel. The room was badly in need of paint and the shower was very moldy. However, the staff was very efficient. When we got to our room and discovered there was no TV remote, someone was there within minutes and even stayed to program it for us. The breakfast was disappointing, just some pastry and cereal for the most part,, we went to the Dunkin Donuts next door.

We stayed for 1 night Aug 17 - we got one of the last rooms so should've felt lucky...not so much. It was a hdcp accessible room which was fine but it only had a double bed in it. I didn't realize hotels still have those. I've heard many advertisements about new rooms for RRI but this isn't one of the lucky ones. There were many things missing from the room - blow dryer rack but no blow dryer - lamp but no light bulb - tv but the remote didn't work - taped batteries to the remote. Breakfast was lacking in many things - juice & fruit & cream cheese. Checked out the pool but luckily it was closed - couldn't see the bottom. I dont think this property is typical of RRI so hopefully they'll get some funds tp renovate very soon

This place was all that it said it would be. For a discounted AAA rate of 79$ a night during busy season, you can not pass up this deal. I have previously stayed in a few "motels" up and down Market street in wilmington and have not been impressed . The red roof inn was to my suprise , very different. We reserved a double smoking room that was clean and spotless when we arrived. I had previous problems in each motel with bugs, and here there was none. The staff was friendly and the Continental Breakfast was up to par. Jack and Tracy ,the house keeper managers, took care of us and made sure everything was proper. My only complaint was that we had to ask for more towels ( they only provide 3 towels in a 2 bed room) but they fufilled my request when I asked. All in all this place is great. Its by no means a 4 star hotel , but for a cheap stay, in a clean reputable motel, This is your spot

Room Tip: rooms near the pool are great, except when people want to swim at 11pm when they are not supposed to...
