I wanted to be in town and in something historic instead of the same chain hotels . I wanted to remember where I stayed and how can you tell one Comfort Inn from another .
This hotel is old and eclectic. Don't expect a white or beige sterile hospital look. The rooms are warm looking and filled with vintage items and antiques. The hallways are filled with antique pieces. It looks old, feels old and is old. It has a familiar smell like an antique store that you will recognize if you love antiquing . I can see how IKEA fans would be turned off and this hotel is not for you.
I would think kids would like it especially if you added some ghost stories in this old place.
The person at the desk is as pleasant as can be ,the rooms clean and OLD.
The continental breakfast has the usual fare except the fruit seemed fresher . The coffee was better than most and the old library it is served in is lovely and OLD.
This is exactly what I expected and was not disappointed as you can feel the history in this old building and the town .
There is no air conditioning , so if you are extra warm blooded , run , run away . But with the highs in July in mid 70's and the nights 40's we found the temp fine. I really like air conditioning in the summer and will complain loudly if it is too warm so the fact that I did not run away screaming when I saw an electric fan says it all !
Downside that could be improved on and should be , is the mattress . At least in the room we stayed the mattress was pretty hard and uncomfortable. But many people prefer a hard mattress and if you are young , you won't care at all . I
I liked it and if you are not expecting modern and want a feel of the old days ( and like a hard mattress ) , you will be happy with the Delaware .
