Didn't have many chooses for last minute stay in Newark for homecoming. Room was dingy and probably not upgraded for a couple decades. Bed was OK. Halls had been refinished. OK I guess for a place to lay our heads. But average at best.

It's not often you find accomodations that are not family owned where ALL the staff clearly care about their job and their clients. Red Roof Inn in Newark exemplefies this dynamic. Makes a huge difference. Keep up the good work guys.

The people at the front desk very extremely pleasant and very accommodating! Cleanest windows we’ve ever seen .....it looked like there was no glass on the glass door in viewing the outside!! Good breakfast included and very reasonably priced. Would go back!!
