    Plus/Minus - Red Roof Inn & Syutes Newark - Univer

    We were visiting for our daughters College Graduation. Lodging was limited in the area. The Red Roof Inn had the room availability at a VERY REASONABLE overall average daily rate. Upon arrival we noticed a great deal of construction going on at the property as well as next door. The desk clerk was very helpful and polite. Another staff member was working to assist a customer who had been staying there on business and needed to extend his stay despite the heavy bookings for the Graduation. The clerk PROACTIVELY provided a printed map showing us the best routes during the graduation period and best way to avoid the area construction. OVERALL STAFF RATIING 5 Stars, A+ or however you want to rate as Excellent .

    * The odors in the hall (I think years of smoke) * Pillows were very small and flat (almost like throw pillows) * Room was clean yet a little "funky" * This was a "suite", but you could really only view TV from bedroom area (room divided by 7/8th wall the hid bed from couch * Pool area not opened (due to construction - assuming will reopen) * Room was sparse and had aging furniture that has seen better days (you get what you pay for) * Pull out couch - Elaine from Seinfeld would have found Jerry's parents pull out comfortable compared to the one in the room (Hope some of you get the reference - if not Google it - Very Funny)

    Last resort motel

    We have stayed in worse hotels… But we can't remember when. The hotel is rundown, worn and houses many long term section 8 residents. There are many better hotels near the University of Delaware and we only booked this one as we needed a large number of rooms for graduation and no other hotels were available. Given the opportunity, I would choose just about any other hotel over this one

    ups and downs

    The price was good.

    Housekeeping needs to take more time and making sure the room is clean, behind the ded was hair and a booger on the wall it felt stuffy and damp, the price was good but won't go again the room number was 142
