One of the lower priced motels in the area, it is an old road-side motel just north of the I-95 interchange. Crumbling sidewalks and a facility in need of renovation provides cheap lodgings. Rooms are typical road motel - outside entrances, two lamps with dim CFL bulbs, bathroom and bedding was clean. Don't look behind the beds or cabinets -... More

Basic. Older hotel good for one night stay. Inside rooms is nicer than outside. Pool closed. Breakfast basic. Over all clean and quiet. We didn't experience noise or crack house qualities As written in previous review. Had a big grill laundry room and fitness room

This sleazy pit is full of pimps, drug dealers, and crackwh*res. Noisy 24/7 and the rooms are gross. they probably don't even wash the sheets. I almost got robbed leaving my room. the traffic is ridiculous

On the way back from Florida I booked a pet friendly, handicap accessible room. Nice young woman checked us in. The room was very clean and the bathroom spacious. It did not have a shower seat or hand held shower so I was unable to take a shower. It was on the last leg of my trip so it wasn't... More

It has been several years since we stayed there; but I believe that it has the same owners. It has switched companies several times. It was very clean and comfortable, and the back part of the inn was quiet and great for pet owners. We pass by it frequently and it looks very nice from the outside. The property was... More

Stayed here two nights during the massive power outage in the Philadelphia area where I live. Hotel looks nice, room was cheerful and clean, had a fridge, bed was very comfortable, cable and wi-fi both worked well, and it was definitely quiet all night. The heater worked well and was whisper quiet. There was a complimentary continental breakfast in the... More

I booked this hotel via Hotels.com. I needed a place to stay for a conference in Wilmington. From the photos online, it looked OK, and there was a notation that the facility had been renovated in Jan 2013. This property was a motel, with a sportsbar right next to it (sharing parking, it seemed), very close to I-95 exit. Checkout... More

Had booked a room at Howard Johnson's across the street but left due to a roach crawling on the wall. Needless to say, I was in desperate need for a place to stay! Front desk staff allowed me to check out the room before booking. This hotel is one of those you get what you pay for, good budget hotel.... More

I was in town for a reunion, needed it only to sleep. met my expectations. Breakfast was Average, waffles and cereal. the room was clean, had clean linen. It's nothing fancy, a nice budget hotel. I would stay at this location again.

I stayed at this property for one night when I went to the area on business. A travel coupon made the total cost $54 for the single night, which was quite a bit lower than other motels in the area. The motel was easy to find, but be prepared to try finding a place to make a u-turn to get... More
