Clean rooms courteous staff and great breakfast all included in your stay.Cool pancake maker and huge assortment in free breakfast.Saturday night a little loud in lobby ,a sports team of some sort unattended by adults we were told by staff,but gotten under control quickly.All in all pleasant experience,but pool not so inviting.

We've stayed here several times. Clean rooms, courteous employees. We have only had a problem once. Students from a team or band were staying at the hotel and making noise. We weren't the only ones who complained. Staff members addressed the issue and we didn't hear anymore noise that night. Breakfast is good. We will continue to come back here... More

This hotel will not honor your tax exempt status. I travel to DE several times a year and this is the only hotel that won't remove the room tax. In fact most of the others remove it without me having to tell them. This hotel insists it needs a form. No such form for the state of DE exists. According... More

Based on other reviews here, I expected more. Checking was quick and pleasant. As soon as we emerged from the elevator on the second floor, there was a stale stench of smoke even though all of the doors had a no smoking sign posted on them? Upon entering the room at the nearly empty hotel, we immediately could hear people... More
