“A very Rewarding Experience”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

My husband and another couple stayed one night at this hotel on November 9, 2013. I check in was quick, employees were very friendly and helpful . We were given bottled water and snacks at check-in. There was coffee, tea , hot chocolate and cookies for your pleasure all evening. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. This was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in including the hotels at Dover Downs.

It's nice to see consistency in a hotel chain. Never have had any issues when reserving a room. Great location, friendly staff and clean rooms. Free shuttle to Harrington Casino and Raceway. Will definitely return.

Spacious clean rooms, comfortable beds, amazing full breakfast & very friendly staff. As rewards members we received a welcome bag at check in with water/snack and also a late check out which we really needed. The price might be a little higher than you are used to but they go above & beyond to make your stay the best!

My dad and I decided to go on a two day mini-trip down to Delaware for short getaway. This was the place we chose since the Holiday Inn Express in Bethany Beach. We booked a suite room, and we were given the BEST SUITE IN THE HOUSE! There was a big cathedral window, a couch/pull out bed, a kitchenette, a dinette, and two queen beds. The Internet was mediocre which was kind of a suprise. My connection was down to three bars but I survived.
The breakfast bar was just fine and there were no problems withthe food.
My dad and I had the whole outdoor swimming pool to ourselves when we were there. I took advantage of the fitness center.
I will definitely stay here again whenever I come back to Delaware. This is a great hotel and I think anyone else who will stay there will love it.

I was back again (5th stay here). This time with the wife.
For a long weekend get away. Included a day at the Beach
ALL of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly!
And, the full (not just continental) breakfast continues to be GREAT!

Would highly recommend this property.
About 30-40 minutes from the beaches.

Went down looking for a retirement house and stayed at the Holiday Inn. Quick check in, clean and a great breakfast. The people at the front desk were very helpful. The rooms had flat screen, good quality TVs. I would stay again.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor, which is smoke free, park in the back and use the back entrance.

We stay here every year for our family reunion. We always enjoy our stay, and are usually upgraded. This year we noticed our room was in bad need of new bedding. The mattress was very hard and the bedding left a bit to be desired. Most of the other Holiday Inns we have stayed in have upgraded their mattresses and bedding, but does not appear so here. Hopefully they will by our visit next year. Also the lighting in the bathroom is not very good. They have the sconces on the side of the mirrors, so it's quite dark trying to put on makeup.
The rest of the room was great and was nice to have the small wet bar area with the sink, frig and MW. ?Breakfast area is good and nice choice of food.
