There is another Red Roof in the Dover, Delaware area; plus one near the university in Wilmington. I have not stayed at either one of these. On the New Jersey side, and just before you get to the Delaware Memorial Bridge, there is a nice Holiday Inn Express that has a $10 per night pet fee. You can get a studio suite that has a queen size bed and a pull out couch for about $130 a night, so if you share, it’s not too bad. A single queen is less, In the $115 range. If you use IHG points, you can get a deal for $85 + points Per night.")
