We are finding ourselves traveling to NC from Boston more frequently, and just found this hotel on our last trip. We couldn't be happier with it. First of all, it was a non smoking hotel (always a plus), and it was recently renovated, the rooms were both spacious and clean, beds were comfortable, breakfast was a nice selection of hot/cold...

The new Holiday Inn Express on Elkton Road serves its function well. It is nearly brand new, so very clean and fresh. The location is good for Newark and the University of DE, although you are cheek-by-jowl with such amenities as a truck stop and large shipping facility, so not much curbside appeal. I do prefer the HI Express Wilmington-Newark... More

I'm Back working in Elkton, and even though the franchise name changed, (was a comfort inn before) the hotel hasn't! Still exceptionally clean and spacious rooms, helpful courteous staff and honestly a home away from home feel for me. I travel year round for work across eastern Pa and Md, including some trips to De and enjoy my stays here... More

We stayed one night at this property. It's recently remodeled and is very pleasant. It has a modern look. Rooms were large and comfortable. We had some lack of heat issues but we're promptly given another room. Service was also professional. The front desk gave resturaunt recommendations and the one we tried was excellent (Blue Crab Grill).

Stopped here to spend the night and break up a long drive. Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Rooms were pleasantly large with a couch and two queen beds. Employees were friendly and did a great job. When we checked in it was late so when the desk clerk answered the phone I was already dreading having to stand... More

My wife's main concern is always cleanliness and this hotel passed the test with flying colors. My main concern is the staff and they were super. The breakfast was also very good. We would have no reservations about staying here next time.

Spacious rooms, kind staff and a nice complimentary breakfast. In your room you'll find everything you need, with a large TV and free WiFi your stay will be comfortable. That's - at a glance - for me the reason to return to this hotel whenever I'll be back in this region. Good job.

Several plus: easy to find, clean and quiet inside, good complementary breakfast and friendly staff, spacious rooms The price is adequate to the level and I never had a problem to find a room, even booking at last minute. The only thing that reduces the rating is the fact that it really looks like a chain hotel, no personality at... More

We used this hotel on a recent trip back from DC to New England where we got a late start. Very easy on/off from 95. Check in was smooth, breakfast was good. The rooms/beds were good. Would stay again.
