“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

This is a great little place. It is not a big chain motel, and I wouldn't want it to be! Check in was pleasent and easy. The owner and staff are very friendly. Sure it may show its age here and there, but nothing terrible. Just a little bit of loose wallpaper and things. As said in another review, the outside is nice, with the flowers and parking and all. And the air conditioner almost ran me out of the room! My wife likes it on the cool side when she sleeps, but I about froze! And it was not turned all the way down! I would recommend this place to anyone!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

This place is one of many second tier motels from the 50's and 60's that have been purchased by Indian immigrants. The model is that the family lives on site and provides decent lodging at a discount price. My experience with such places has been good.

This little motel (at least room 105) was consistent with that experience. The room was clean and they had free Wi-Fi. The transaction at check-in was through a glass partition and the couch had some discoloration but other than that, it was not much less than you would get at a Holiday Inn.

The AC was above average in cooling. It's a good deal.

This motel is very small, but very nice. The outside facility is perfect; flowers, new paint, and no trash, good parking. The rooms are perfect size, has a couch, table, refrigerator, microwave. The rooms are a bit outdated but everything works; AC gets COLD! Good service, people are nice, family owned.

I would recommend staying here.

My husband and I usually stay at name brand hotel/motels, but took a chance at this one for the Labor Day weekend. What a delight to find this small motel (w/only 16 rooms) so clean and spacious. This family run motel is "no frills" just the basics (no coffee maker or continental breakfast) but the beds were comfortable, the room had a nice scent to it and the air/heat was great. Other guess were very friendly and so was the staff.

I visit Delaware a few times a year...and with the economy I needed to look for a nice place to stay that was affordable....So I took a chance (because of good reviews) and boy was I surprised ....The room was roomy, and best of all CLEAN...one of the cleaneat
rooms I 've been in...Fairly new with comfortable beds...The free Wi-fY and friendly service was a plus also...I will be staying here again..

travelling around, and needed a hotel in Delaware.
I booked the hotel the morning for the evening. When I got there the owner wasnt there but had made sure there was someone who could let me pay and give me the key.

When I got to the room I was pleasantly surprise. It was very clean, the room was big and spacey. Everything worked well including the wifi (which has a code)

Couldn't find any affordable motels along the coast, so I decided to try inland. The Relax Inn was better than I expected: large, updated, clean rooms with sitting area and couch. Everything worked and lots of water pressure. Good wi-fi. My only complaint: no coffee pot in room. A real deal and good value.
