We have stayed at the Belle with our two dogs on a couple of occasions on our trips from Maine to Georgia. The staff is very welcoming, the room clean and cheery. Phil, the desk clerk, was especially warm and made us feel so welcome. He provided good directions as well. We will most assuredly stay here again!

Recently stayed at the Clarion for a week on business. The hotel is convenient to where I needed to be and the room was spacious with a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave. However, the restaurant closes too early for business travelers and the night I did get there before closing, the chicken caesar salad was not edible. Housekeeping was also... More

The hotel is very nice. The rooms are clean and temperature control was very easy on a very cold wether stay. People were friendly in the restaurant. Food was good but not outstanding. I used the Wilmington train one day and it was a very short ride straight into the terminal area.

I was passing through the New Castle area for business and found the Clarion to be a perfectly good place to spend the night. The free wifi worked well, and I did not have time for the complimentary buffet breakfast, but it seemed more promising than some of the rudimentary free breakfasts normally offered in hotels of this type.

I wasn't sure about choosing this hotel at check-in since the process took 30 minutes….trying to find adjoining rooms that had been requested. Ultimately, it was determined that there were no adjoining rooms available that had the required bed configuration. While this was a long process without the desired outcome, I was impressed with the obvious efforts being made to... More

All in all, not a bad place, given the heavily discounted rate we received booking through Expedia and paying in advance. Though a bit small, the rooms were clean, had all the necessary amenities, AC worked well, and the beds were comfortable. The TV channel listings were a bit hard to decipher, and we had to get a printed list... More

Pet Friendly hotel - main reason why we stayed there. I have stayed in this hotel several times over the last 3-4 years. It's never been overly clean. This time was the worst. *All of the glasses in our room were dirty. One even had lip marks on it. *The sheets had what looked like blood stains on it *There... More

Pros: Nice staff, attractive Delaware art in hallways, furnishings and decor are okay, good lighting in room (nice, because I hate dimly lit hotel rooms), safe location. Breakfast was good. Cons: internet did not work when we checked in and was not fixed during our stay, bathroom towel bars and chrome magnifying mirror (nice to have!) were very dusty and... More
