Priceline Hotel: 2* Wilmington (Newark East - Christiana) Red Roof Inn Wilmington - Newark

This is a past win (bought it on 9/28/12), but I wanted to post it because this property has not been mentioned here previously. This was for graduation weekend and I had checked for a room back in June but the prices were around $80. When I noticed that the Express Deals price had dropped, I decided to bid again and got it for $37.

They list Red Roof Inn at 2 stars. There is no way I would consider it that. There are no refrigerators in the standard rooms and no breakfast (or coffee in the rooms). They claim they are no smoking but my room smelled like someone had smoked it in, and I've seen other reviews online saying they had the same problem. Since my son has graduated I won't be going back there, but I would think twice about bidding two stars again for fear of getting this dive. Oh, and they charge you $1.50 a day for the safe deposit, and have to ask to have it removed when you check out.

On my previous stay last August, I was at the Days Inn. That wasn't great, but it wasn't as bad as the Red Roof. That said, knowing that I was paying $37 for a hotel room during graduation weekend made the stay bearable.
