My wife and I were on the road south of Dover, DE on the evening of this review looking for a place to stay and read the reviews of this HIE. They mostly seemed good so we called and made a reservation. When we arrived we were concerned to find first that all the plants at the entrance were dead. Humm. There were cigerette butts scattered all around the entrance. Upon entering the hotel we noticed the door mat was really dirty. We checked in with a friendly young women who gave us a room on the third floor. As we walked to the elevator, the place was dirtier and dirtier. Molding around the hallway entrance by the elevator was torn off- no notice of "excuse our mess" etc. there were smudges all over the elevator. When we got to our room, there was a towel laying on the floor *outside* the door. When we opened the door, one bed was completely bare and the other was obviously slept in. The carpet down the hallway was dirty. It was as if the cleaning crew took the day off. Why would the clerk give us an unmade room? How in the world does Holiday Inn let their managers get away with such incompetence? We went back to the clerk and told her we would not be staying there. I told her the room was unmade and the place was filthy. She smiled and said ok. We ended up staying down the road at an HIE in Delmar, MD just north of Salisbury.
