(Just wish they would get rid... More

With a courteous and accommodating staff, easy access to the rooms making load-in and load-out a snap, our traveling family of children's entertainers felt exceptionally well cared for on the night before our performance in Bear, DE. The heated indoor pool was delightful for the whole family. Breakfast choices were just right for our needs and tastes, and the room... More

The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. The hotel and pool was clean and in good repair. Compared to rates of other hotels in the area I thought it was the best value. Enjoyed staying there and more than likely will again if I return to the area.
