Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
One of the best Hotels we stayed while on vacation in a long time. We love inside the bathroom shower the mounted shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Really cool. Also easy access to the beach and thank you for the complimentary pass for a umbrella, chairs and towels! Extremely close to fantastic Seafood restaurants.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
Likes: • walkable (10 min) to beach • both a CVS and a Wahlgreens and two restaurants (Mickey's and Bethany Boathouse) are in the same parking lot • free breakfast Dislikes: • we checked in at 4 (check-in is 3) and had to wait for our room to be ready, • we got a room next to the breakfast room and right outside the lobby (we booked in Feb. and expected a better room) • there was neither a desk nor a corner chair in the room • a new parking fee of $25/day, • a new optional fee of $25/day for cleaning service • there were not signs requiring guests to pick up their dog’s waste, and waste was left on the street and sidewalk behind the hotel

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Clean, and staff was great, but every time we went to the front desk, there were people dealing with customers complaining about the motel. Very disappointing. Holiday Express was certainly a 5-star stay, and we have stayed their multiple times. Unfortunately, not because of your staff, ad they were great, but because of new corporate polices, ie.: pay to clean rooms and park, and eggs and sausage only breakfast, we will still come to Bethany beach next year, but will stay at another place closer to the ocean and one that offers better deals. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holiday Express was a excellent vacation place for us and many others to go. Unfortunately, the new management has a different idea. If you continue to operate with these policies, you should immediately sell the business, or you will be out of business with 2 years!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were VERY disappointed !!!!!!!!!!!
