When working in the state of Delaware, I use this motel most often due in fact that it is centrally located in the middle of the state. Its overall outside appearance speaks volumes to the weary traveler and extends a warm welcome. Once inside, the appearance is even better than the outside! Im always greeted by a friendly face at...

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

Spacious clean rooms, comfortable beds, amazing full breakfast & very friendly staff. As rewards members we received a welcome bag at check in with water/snack and also a late check out which we really needed. The price might be a little higher than you are used to but they go above & beyond to make your stay the best!

I was back again (5th stay here). This time with the wife. For a long weekend get away. Included a day at the Beach ALL of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly! And, the full (not just continental) breakfast continues to be GREAT! Would highly recommend this property. About 30-40 minutes from the beaches.

Went down looking for a retirement house and stayed at the Holiday Inn. Quick check in, clean and a great breakfast. The people at the front desk were very helpful. The rooms had flat screen, good quality TVs. I would stay again.
