“Worth the stop over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Another of the revamped Holiday Inns. Convenient, right off the parkway. Nice size, clean rooms...clean safe lobby with plenty of seating. Included breakfast was very well done as well. What made the stay was the manager going out of his way to not only recommend a local Pub restaurant (Two Stones) but he also got us the phone # and before we could even google map it he had directions printed out for us! EXCELLENT service... and the fact that he was spot about how great Two Stones was just made it a great stay and well recommended.

Hotel is really clean, room was also clean, pool is a bit cold and small but still nice.

Breakfast had a good selection, and overall was a nice place to stay. Nothing to complain about.

Will come back next year for sure.

Excellent Holiday Inn, close to shopping area, interstate and University of Deleware. The breakfast area and room were clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room easily slept 6. Large lobby and indoor pool.

This is a very nice HEI. It's either brand new or very recently updated. Rooms are very roomy and clean. The breakfast area is much bigger than the standard HiE breakfast area. The dining area is very large. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There were two sets of front loading washer/dryers for guests to use. $2/load to was and dry. We used our reward nights for the one night stay and thought it was an excellent value.

Literally right off I-95, this location couldn't be more perfect. Walking distance to 7-Eleven, Shell gas, a smoke shop, and a liquor store. Further walk or very short drive to Pizza Hut and other fast food.

My room was clean, comfortable and quiet, with a fridge, microwave, great free wi-fi, and good air conditioning during a warm and muggy night. Computers in the front lobby area are connected to a printer for boarding pass printing.

Breakfast was the typical HIE fare: fresh fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, sausages, biscuits & gravy, cold cereals, juices, bakery items, and I'm sure something else I'm forgetting.

The staff were all friendly and very helpful. There was even a small pantry next to the registration desk with frozen meals, ice cream, candy, and beverages for purchase, along with toiletries and Delaware postcards. Ample parking. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and probably will!

Room was clean, plenty of hot water, no issues, nice linens, etc.
A little pricey for a holiday inn,($212 per night) but amoung the best travel hotels I stayed at.
My room was very large........would have been great if traveling wqith my family.
Breakfast was rather plain, but typical for these types of hotels.

This relatively new hotel is right next to I-95 and very close to Christiana Mall where you can shop tax-free. Despite its proximity to the Interstate, we spent a very quiet night at this hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortably furnished and spotless. Complimentary breakfast offers a variety of different foods to choose from. The fanciest device is the pancake machine. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The only problem we had was caused by our GPS which led us past the hotel onto the Interstate. So make sure you turn onto Gerald Drive and don't continue straight ahead.
