Stayed at this hotel while at lacrosse tournament in Delaware. Clean modern rooms and comfortable lobby. Although hotel was sold out it never felt crowded and was quiet. Breakfast options had something for everyone and coffee was great. Staff was consistently helpful informative and friendly. Highly recommend.

I was very hesitant about staying here. Mostly because we have our faves and we like sticking to them. It was a last minute booking and the closest hotel to Dover that was available.We booked for a two night stay during Firefly Music Festival this past weekend. We had a very clean King size bed room with a very spacious... More

I rarely give hotels 5s. To me, 3 is meeting expectation. 4 is well-executed and 5 is well-exceeding expectation. This hotel gets a 5. The staff is excellent. From calling before arrival to get a room requested, to the front desk at arrival/departure/asking questions, to housekeeping, breakfast and maintenance - EVERYONE is friendly and helpful.

While it is just off the interstate, which is convenient, this hotel has one side [towards the lawn/woods] which does not hear the traffic noise. So a good rest stop. It is fresh and clean with helpful staff and nice rooms. Best thing is room service.....it connects to the nearby Bertucci's, who bring your order to the front desk, and... More

I travel about once a month to Philadelphia for business. I drive the 40 minutes deo Philly to stay at this hotel because it is always quiet, clean and conveniently located right off 95. The staff is great and always helpful. There is a big mall and plenty of restaurants nearby.

I've stayed at this hotel before and enjoyed the ample complimentary buffet, free wifi, the very pleasant staff and clean room. It is close to the turnpike, University of Delaware (Go, Blue Hens!) and mall and restaurants. A minor point: the towels are paper-thin. Given that this is not a budget hotel, you'd expect better. Just one woman's opinion, but... More
