First, the hotel is hard to find. You have to make a turn onto a side road ad if you miss it, you need to loop around again. There is a sign saying where to turn once you get to that side road, but not telling you to make the initial turn. Amusingly, once you get there, they have a sign that says "You Found Us!". The hotel is questionably two stars. There is no breakfast, no refrigerators in standard rooms and no coffee. When you check in, you have to agree that they can charge you $1.50 a day for the safe deposit box. You need to ask to have it removed at checkout if you did not use it. Our room smelled like someone had smoked in it, even though the location is advertised as smoke free (this is mentioned in other reviews; the front desk clerk acknowledged that people do smoke in them even though they are told not to). The air conditioner was very loud, as was the fan in the bathroom. The bed wasn't bad. Shower did not have an adjustable shower-head and shampoo/soap were tiny sizes, smaller than other two star hotels. There was only one ice machine that I was able to find, on the first floor next to the office (we were on the second floor), and it wasn't working our first night there. I seriously question Priceline's rating system if this can be rated two stars, as it definitely seemed more like one star to me. I would probably not bid 2 stars in this zone again for fear of getting it again. The only good thing I can say is that I got a great price, considering that it was graduation weekend at the University of Delaware, and I wasn't in the hotel room very much. We had to wash all of our stuff after getting home because of the smoke smell in the room. The Internet worked reasonably well, although I had problems streaming the graduation ceremony (it was choppy), but it was not clear if it was the hotel or university's problem.
