While this is a very nice hotel and located just off the UD campus, our stay was interrupted by issues such as one working elevator and the hot water being turned off without being given proper notice. With a high volume of guests for a UD orientation, there was only one working elevator. Having a room on the highest floor,... More

It's not really fair to postpone an excellent review just because you don't want to risk the place being full every night. This property is everything you want in a night on the road - clean, quiet, good cable, excellent staff. Though it's off the beaten path, it's totally worth the effort. Given the horrendous state of Marriott properties in... More

I was very pleased with my stay at this hotel. Conveniently located. Easy to get to. Plenty of parking. It is also nice that the University of Delaware has students that work in the hotel as part of a "full hands-on practicum learning experience".

Have stayed at this Hotel several times-the Front Desk very efficient and polite-the rooms were very large and clean-the food service was reasonably priced and food and service of good quality-the crab cakes were the best I ever had-really enjoyed the University students who were working at the Hotel as part of their studies.
