it was run-down, smelled bad, could feel the springs in the bed, only one chair,

It smelled terrible and had dog feces residue on the carpet

We were able to stay with our dog, in a very clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff.

Shower drain was blocked. Black, dirty, foul smelling water was seeping up the drain into the tub. I was offered a 15% off coupon by the staff. I wasn't able to shower in my room. Poor experience and attempt to remedy the problem.

Close to major exits and eateries. House keeping kept passing by our room and I had to track them down to ask if they’re coming back to do our room. Perhaps this was because we had our dog with us, but when they returned we put the dog on the balcony or took him for a walk. There were 4 of us not including the dog but we only got towels and face cloths for just 3.

Outdated and hard to get in and out of the location. Some staff were very friendly, some were not. For a one night stay not to bad

Our car was stolen from this property the hotel staff was no help thanks to Newark police department for locating our vehicle and returning it safely

Friendly staff. Breakfast provided. Very convenient location.

Great stay and great location. I’ll stay again. I’ll recommend to anyone who wants to spend time in Delaware or just for a night rest.

Had another great stay at Red Roof Newark during Thanksgiving week. Stayed here a few times before and will be using facilities again. Good restaurants nearby, and close to everything else.

Nice and convenient location right off I 95 ramp, Just outside of university area. Good selection of restaurants close to hotel and only a few miles from center of town. Room was very clean and comfortable. Have stayed here before and will be back.

Hotel needs to be update, sliding door wasn't secure and couldn't seal to trim so we could feel the cold air. To many pets are allowed at hotel. For the amount of money people pay they shouldn't be subjected to varies of pets and bad conditions.
