Another of the revamped Holiday Inns. Convenient, right off the parkway. Nice size, clean rooms...clean safe lobby with plenty of seating. Included breakfast was very well done as well. What made the stay was the manager going out of his way to not only recommend a local Pub restaurant (Two Stones) but he also got us the phone # and... More

Hotel is really clean, room was also clean, pool is a bit cold and small but still nice. Breakfast had a good selection, and overall was a nice place to stay. Nothing to complain about. Will come back next year for sure.

Excellent Holiday Inn, close to shopping area, interstate and University of Deleware. The breakfast area and room were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room easily slept 6. Large lobby and indoor pool.

Literally right off I-95, this location couldn't be more perfect. Walking distance to 7-Eleven, Shell gas, a smoke shop, and a liquor store. Further walk or very short drive to Pizza Hut and other fast food. My room was clean, comfortable and quiet, with a fridge, microwave, great free wi-fi, and good air conditioning during a warm and muggy night.... More

Room was clean, plenty of hot water, no issues, nice linens, etc. A little pricey for a holiday inn,($212 per night) but amoung the best travel hotels I stayed at. My room was very large........would have been great if traveling wqith my family. Breakfast was rather plain, but typical for these types of hotels.

This relatively new hotel is right next to I-95 and very close to Christiana Mall where you can shop tax-free. Despite its proximity to the Interstate, we spent a very quiet night at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortably furnished and spotless. Complimentary breakfast offers a variety of different foods to choose from. The fanciest device is the pancake... More

We like to stay here on our way north and south on Rt 95. A very comfortable stay each time in a quiet area. Lobby and breakfast bar areas clean and inviting. Saw the pool but didn't have time to enjoy it....maybe some other time.

We stayed during UD Graduation weekend. For what it is, this hotel is virtually flawless. Feels like new construction, so rooms, lobby and breakfast area are all up to date. Pool and hot-tub along with a small gym fit the needs of most travelers, and there's even an outdoor patio with couple of round tables and umbrellas. For those wanting... More
