Perfect overnight stay. Great price compared to other hotels in the neighborhood. Customer service excellent. Water and trail mix at check-in along with the usual cookies. Would not hesitate to stay again.

traveling with elderly mom who uses walker and has difficulty getting around. had to find hotel quickly while traveling at southmost end of nj turnpike since she was feeling ill/tired. did quick search and found country inn & suites for good price in delaware. right off i-95, very clean and large room. complimentary hot breakfast was very good - eggs, sausage, potatoes, waffle machine, yogurt, fruit, etc. - all the standard stuff done well and plentiful. we arrived on thursday night and stayed for couple days. as my mom rested, got a chance to explore.

being close to udelaware, hs/college teams were around - well-behaved and not loud. front desk very helpful and lots of restaurants close by. found plow & hearth outlet (not many of these!) just down the street, along with tj max, best buy and great coffee/sandwich place called 'purebread'...fresh, cozy and everything named after dogs!! hospital was across from shopping area (just in case) and christiana mall was the other direction.

this hotel was real find and little gem in the middle of many higher hotel chains. on a side road from main road, but you can still see it. though they didn't have any suites, room was large and beds comfy. lending library of books is cute and underground parking was convenient getting her to car when we checked out. definitely recommend.

Room Tip: upper floor so you can walk down center staircase and take elevator to underground parking garage

People at the front desk were nice enough, but the place was filthy. Our Room (416), was smoked in by someone else, when we complained about it we were told they Motel cleaning people had something they would use to clear that up, we ask to come back in a couple hours. We did, and we were so sorry we did! The room reeked of some type of cleaning agent, so bad we started coughing. Tried to open a window and could only slightly crake open one, the other was froze in place. The room was covered with dust and the bathroom was in need of a good cleaning as well. We left and went across the street to the Hilton, more expensive but clean and quiet... Don't stay here...

We stayed at the hotel while in town for the Easter Seals Volleyball Challenge at the Delaware Orthopedic Sportsplex and were very impressed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fresh and the staff paid close attention to ensure everything was refilled and the tables were kept clean. I also really enjoyed the fresh coffee throughout the day. Parking was easy and we had quick access to a couple of restaurants without having to go out on the main road. The only thing missing was the newspapers that were advertised on their website but absent at the hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor near the main stairs and did not have any complaints about noise from the h...

The hotel staff were very friendly and the complimentry breakfast was very good. The room was very clean and comfortalbe. The lobby and hall way rugs need to be replaced because they are worn out and prehaps they could could have used a good vacuuming also.

I was in this hotel for 2 weeks, I travel for work, I have been on the road for years so I know what I am expecting. This location was pleasant, the staff was very nice. Checking in I was greeted by a sleeping clerk, but when you check in at 3 am this can happen. The rooms are clean, great parking under the hotel, and breakfast is not the same thing everyday. For the price this is cheaper than the Hilton across the street and just as nice in my eyes. Not only do I recommend this place but I am going to stay here again.

We found ourselves with a 22 hour layover at Newark airport one week before Christmas. This property was an awesome option for us because it is across the street from a very large outlet mall.

The hotel was very clean, the workers very friendly, shuttle service prompt, and the room was as comfortable as you could ask for. The rooms offer refrigerators, free wifi, comfortable beds, and quick in and out service. The complementary breakfast is very good.

I strongly recommend this hotel for an overnight at the airport.

Room Tip: Great for an overnight at EWR
