Dated infrastructure but nice staff

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Staff
Cons: Infrastructure was dated (bathroom, for example)
Location: U-Del is the big draw
Breakfast was the usual carbo-fest, with some protein. Styrofoam plates and bowls a bit disappointing.

Cleanest Holiday Inn Express with great breakfast

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: Clean, New and Great Breakfast
Cons: For the money, nothing
Location: Amish country is about one hour away. That was a lot of fun. Univ. of Deleware is within 15 minutes drive.
This was the cleanest Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed in. The hotel staff was great, and the free breakfast was exceptional. Usually I won't eat the free breakfast in hotels, but this breakfast was very good. They had scrambled eggs, fruit, pastry and pancakes that were actually really good. Nice job to the breakfast staff.

It's a new hotel and clean everywhere. The bed is too soft though...

Excellent Stay

Posted May 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
This was a nice place to stay. Our room was clean, the bed very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got there late, and got down to the complementary breakfast with only 15 minutes left, but they were still bringing out fresh food. I could not be more satisfied. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Nice place

Posted May 26, 2014
Pros: Breakfast, hot tub.
Cons: Pillows are very uncomfortable, stiff like a rock. My neck was sore all day.
When we reached the street where hotel is located we were a little lost, couldn't find the entrance from the main road. We arrived at 11:30 pm on Saturday and there was no parking available, had to park on the other side by another hotel. Smell outside of the hotel was unpleasant. However, it is clean and smelled well inside. Employees were very helpful and check in was quick. Inside pool clean, but small. Breakfast was fresh and appetizing.

great place to stay to visit student

Posted May 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
I have stayed here before and have found the location close to shopping, dining and the Univ of Delaware. The hotel is very clean, quiet and just such a pleasant place. The breakfast is very good with lots of variety. The staff is also very friendly. I will be staying here again.

This is a great place to stay. Easy location, clean, friendly. Pool was amazing, great for small children. Breakfast was good. Beds were comfortable. Was pleasantly surprised when I saw they use yummy Bed & Bath shampoo, conditioner and lotion.
