We are waiting on our home so we decided to try the Red Rood Inn for a few days and we were pleasantly pleased. One of the best things were you can bring your pets and they don't charge for them like most hotels. We met Amesh and Vijay and they were very helpful getting us checked in.

Was back in town for the holiday and as always booked a room at my favorite Newark Delaware motel.

Can't believe the positive reviews on this place. It was filthy, dimly lit parking lot and the staff argued with me when I asked for a refund because the room was dirty and gross. Stuffy room that smelled bad with damaged furniture. I've never left a hotel before but this was exceptionally bad that I wouldn't have even stayed there...
