Staff was pleasant and room was comfortable except for the loud hvac which woke me every time the fan cycled on. It was loud! When I brought this to the manager's attention he did not seem to be too concerned even though I had already heard that this was a problem that was ongoing in the hotel. He did give... More

I came here for a business trip from Sunday to Saturday. The room was clean and calm. The bath room is a bit "old style and darkish, the basn is outside the shower and WC area.

I enjoyed the size of the room with a king bed and sofa bed for the kids. The pool and hot tub were huge but kind of icky water in them. I did not find the desk staff very friendly, it was quite a piece off the I 95, but lots of great places to eat nearby!

The hotel was clean . The pool and hot tub were big. The staff was attentive. The lobby was nice. The breakfast was fine (donuts were a little stale) Our bed was a little saggy. Overall a good place for the price.

The staff was excellent. First room had issues. Once they changed our room the room was perfect. Cannot say enough about the friendliness of the staff and the comfort of the beds. Had it not been the issues of our first room/first night stay I would have given them an excellent.

I ended up staying here as the result of unfortunate travel events on a trip down to OCMD. Coming out of Wilmington I wasn't sure what to expect of this place but it was recommended as a "safer" option. It was probably the best hotel experience I've ever had. I was initially impressed by the nicely kept lobby. It was... More
