Recent guest reviews

Good price and clean room with comfy bed. Only thing thst kept us up was the noise from the highway very close by.

Haven't been here in awhile, but it seems it's glory has faded. Surly night staff, rundown stuffy rooms. Felt like a truck stop motel

It is a great place. Very clean and courteous management. Nice breakfast and room service. Good internet connection speed and rooms are neat. Highly recommended

It's a decent stay for the price but I seriously don't understand why they cannot fix wifi issue. I had read reviews from years back saying there were wifi issues but I thougt that would have been fixed. I am totally wrong. Stay was good but connectivity and the response from front desk when I enquire about wifi was not at all satisfactory. I may still go here if I don't need any internet. It's a good place for the price! Hope they fix the Internet also the service.

Overall nice motel. The free WiFi was a great amenity. Setting the temperature of the room was hard to control.

A dead roach on the bathroom floor. The grout was blackened with mildew. They could have easily thrown some bleach on that. I sat on the bed because the chairs had stains. The desk clerk for the afternoon shift was very argumentative. The girl that came after her was very polite and accommodating. I would not recommend this hotel to an one!

The room is OK. The service is below average. You get the sense that this is not a happy place. The check in was not good and I felt as if someone was doing me a favor. Checkout was better and the lady was nice. Be ware of what you get here. If I knew better I would spend the extra money and book across the street at Fairfield, however, the only reason I came here is because I had two sweet angelic dogs who needed a room too.

Taking in consideration the low price it is a good place to stay. Clean in a quiet safe area. Only problem I had was that there were a few gnats in my room which was a nuisance, but other than that it was fine.

Bit unclean and bad smell but overall worth for money.

The trip was very short and the hotel was great. Staff was super friendly. It was just an altogether great relaxing experience.

Needed a place to stay with my friend while in the state for a soccer game. Good value for the money

Booked this hotel as my sister and I were going to the beach and outlet shopping and we needed an average place to sleep as we were not planning on being there at all. We actually didn't check in until after midnight. The electricity was not working when we got into the room so we had to go back to the front desk. This is not something you want to deal with after a long day and it was already late. We thought they were just going to move us into another room, but they did something to have it working again. Room had a bad odor, very basic room, little amenities, but can't expect much for a cheap stay.

Nice hotel for the value. Room was clean and staff was friendly

Typical RedRoof Inn. What you see is what you get. Ok amenities BUT a great price and a very convenient location

Decent value I suppose , but rooms need MAJOR update.

Not bad for remodel just not clean and poor staff help.

The hotel had definitely been updated but the customer service was unsatisfactory and the bathroom wasn't clean at all. There were urine stains on the toilet and the tub was filthy.

The hotel was close to my job and comfortable enough for the week.

First, let me say that while what happened during my stay wasn't exactly the fault of the hotel, it did happen on their property so they are responsible in that aspect. Upon check in, I was greeted with that famous NJ hospitality of not saying a word to me and just staring at me like I was interrupting something. Barely a word was spoken to me, even though I tried to be as friendly and courteous as possible. At the room, it was pretty average, but that was to be expected at such a low price. It was a room for one night so we really didn't care. My main issue with the room was that (as with ALL Red Roofs) it said it had free wi-fi. I guess technically it had some routers, but it was absolutely worthless. We couldn't load anything. I would have been fine with some kind of option to pay for Internet, if it had actually worked. At 1:30am we were woken up by the sound of glass breaking and people yelling right outside our door. I panicked not only for our own safety, but also our car was parked right there as well. My boyfriend looked out the window to see three men assaulting another man and break a liquor bottle in his face. A couple seconds later they realize that people are looking at them from a bunch of rooms and fear that they will be in trouble, so they all run. My boyfriend then opens the door to ask the man who was assaulted if he needed an ambulance because he was covered in blood. He declined and staggered to his room. A couple minutes later the police arrived. Everyone had already ran away, so my boyfriend went out to tell them what he saw. They looked around for a little while, but since no one was around, the police soon left. Maybe 30 minutes after the police left, the men returned. They looked around outside our door for a bit, as if they had dropped something, then started going back and forth throughout the night. They would pass by with liquor bottles, random crying women, and a couple cars that circled the building for hours. While I realize that this was not exactly something associated with the hotel itself, I can't recommend staying here if safety is a concern for you. I was absolutely terrified and we didn't sleep at all that night. I can't say I would ever consider staying there again or recommend to anyone that they should stay there. It's just not worth it to not feel safe.

The room and bed was comfortable. No refrigerator or microwave. The front desk staff was walking around barefoot! If you need a place just to sleep, I'd recommend it but that's it.
