Clean room, welcoming smiles. Plenty of room for us and the kids. Soft bed with several pillows...simple but comfortable. Breakfast starts at 7... We'll see if it's worth it or poor... Not much else to say really.

We had originally found the hotel next door on trip advisor but picked this one when we pulled in. Glad we did. We arrived at nearly 930 at night to find the indoor pool was open. The pool was warm and enough. It was a small space but there was only one other person in there so it was big... More

Stayed here in July for a one-night visit to the region. The hotel is very new, clean, and modern. Breakfast seemed like your typical continental fare though we had to leave just as it was opening. The staff was extremely nice. WiFi worked, and the beds were comfortable. I would definitely stay here again if I return to the area.

Something that allows businesses to distinguish themselves these days is staff tenure. It is so infrequent that you see places (any place, really) with staff that are loyal and stick around. This Holiday Inn Express is certainly an exception to that. The staff are seasoned and genuinely helpful. It's evident from their every action that they want to make sure... More

The staff was very helpful and professional. The conference room was adequate and water was available at all times. We were there for 2 lunches and 1 breakfast. Both were delicious. The rooms were wonderful- two televisions and a sofa. In addition, there was a sink, microwave and fridge. (along with the coffee maker). The rooms were very clean and... More

We arrived at the Holiday Inn Express in Wilmington-Newark, DE. The hotel was nice as was the room, until I used the bathroom. I glanced into the shower and noticed a long blonde hair on the shower floor. Recognizing that even the best of housekeepers could miss one hair I was ready to over look it. Just then, I noticed...

It was our second time staying at this hotel. I have to admit it wasn't our first choice, but hotels near the festival grounds book fast and are not cheap. It was an almost 40 min ride back and forth each day, but we were at peace knowing we had a great stay last year! We had a super late... More
