You want the Ritz, stay at the Ritz.

Cons: At the breakfast, the eggs were a little rubbery, but edible.
This isn't the Ritz, but for a good nights stay in a clean and quiet room the Red Roof Inn in Newark, De. is a fine place to stay. We have stayed here before and will again when we come to Newark again.

A College party dump...

Pros: Location
Cons: Everything
Location: Convenient to highway.
Dirty, loud clientele, shabby furniture, bugs, lumpy worn mattresses. Doesn't match any Red Roof advertising. If the red roof at Christiana mall is available, stay there. This hotel is a dump.

Disgusting

The parking lot was full of trash. The hallway smelled like urine. The room smelled of chemicals. The curtains were torn. The bed was saggy. The bathroom tiles were broken. We took one look at the place and immediately checked out. Would NEVER recommend. Totally gross.
