We pulled in on a cold snowy night, owner was nice and welcoming, price very reasonable., bed was very hard. I liked that the bed was separated from the sitting area and in the morning the snow was cleared for us to get to our car!

We recently had the best experience of a 15-day road trip. Along our route, we pulled up economic hotels for each night. While planning our route south through Delaware, we opted for the Relax Inn. Just off Route 13, this place was in our budget and clean! The refrigerator worked fine - we just turned it on. Nice enough facility... More

...but it sure wasn't in the same Relax Inn that I did! The good. The staff. Extremely friendly. The bad. Everything else. My adult son and I needed a place to sleep on the halfway point of a road trip. I chose this based on the tripadvisor reviews, but now I'm seriously reconsidering that move again! The room was disgusting.... More

Stayed here after searching for over five hours for a hotel or motel in the beach area of Delaware and further afield. Yes, we should have booked, but we didn't know where we'd be as this was a long distance trip! Anyway, everywhere was full or charging stupid amounts ($200+ tax for an Econolodge!). We came across this and at... More

My boyfriend and I traveled to Dover for a Mini Vacation at the End of June. We didn't want to spend alot of money and came on trip advisor to look some places up. All the reviews were good so we figured we'd give it a shot. Check-in was very quick, the room was nice and clean, and the owners... More

This is the first time I've questioned the veracity of tripadvisor reviews... Should have figured it out when so many said the same thing. I am on my room right note and it's more or less a dump. Mattresses are encased in ill-fitting plastic, no fitted sheets, the non-smoking designation means nothing since the room smells of stake cigarettes. I... More

We stayed here over the Firefly Festival weekend and really enjoyed our visit! The hotel was convenient, clean and had everything we needed for a fun weekend. The owners are so kind, and made sure we had everything we needed. This little place had every convenience of a larger chain hotel room with the comfort of a private suite. Will... More

This is a great little place. It is not a big chain motel, and I wouldn't want it to be! Check in was pleasent and easy. The owner and staff are very friendly. Sure it may show its age here and there, but nothing terrible. Just a little bit of loose wallpaper and things. As said in another review, the... More

This place is one of many second tier motels from the 50's and 60's that have been purchased by Indian immigrants. The model is that the family lives on site and provides decent lodging at a discount price. My experience with such places has been good. This little motel (at least room 105) was consistent with that experience. The room... More

This motel is very small, but very nice. The outside facility is perfect; flowers, new paint, and no trash, good parking. The rooms are perfect size, has a couch, table, refrigerator, microwave. The rooms are a bit outdated but everything works; AC gets COLD! Good service, people are nice, family owned. I would recommend staying here.
