“Right off I-95, near mall and hospital”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I have stayed here before visiting family in the area. The hotel is in a cluster of hotels/motels right off the I-95 highway between Newark and Wilmington DE. Not much else in the area, close to the big tax-free Christiana shopping mall. Most guests seem to be passing through, visiting the big hospital up the road, or visiting the U of D in Newark. The hotel is clean and modern chain-hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. Nice warm breakfast that they rotate the from day to day. Good value for money and reliable.

Room Tip: The rooms straight ahead from the reception desk are next to the elevator and noisy.

Stayed one night while in town for a family function, and it was probably one of the worst hotel stays we have ever had. We have stayed in Country Inn and Suites before, and NEVER have we had such an awful night.
The walls were so thin we could hear not only every word of the people on both side of us, but every movement. When we turned out the lights you could see light streaming in along the wall/ceiling seam from the rooms next door. I finally said to my husband around 1 a.m., in a normal voice, "do you think they will ever put those kids to bed?" Suddenly things quieted down a bit. At least no more screaming kids. We did have to listen to their TV show for a few more hours, however.
Breakfast was mediocre.
Think about another place to stay if in Newark Delaware.

I normally stay at The Hilton which is across from this Country Inn, but wanted to stay some place different to save some money. I stayed in a King Suite, enjoyed free Wi-Fi, had free coffee and free breakfast each morning. I stayed 4 nights so I received a 30% discount. Large room, quiet location, and free amenities convinced me this will be my hotel in the future when I come to Wilmington. I saved about $75/day by staying here. Well worth the savings! I took my savings and then shopped in tax free Delaware!

Dear Beachlady0722, Thanks for such a wonderful review! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us- I couldn't ask for a better list our amenities and the benefits to staying with us! I and all of my staff are excited to have you back anytime! Tax-Free Delaware and the nearby newly renovated Christiana Mall are a great place to use those savings!

This hotel looks nice from the outside but looks are deceiving! The halls are dirty. Our room had wall paper falling off the wall, the tv was disconnected from the back, and the worst part was discovering the used condom next to my nightstand! I wouldn't stay at this hotel again even if I had to sleep in my car!

A nice clean hotel with very friendly staff. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic! The room was nice and clean, but the billing got a bit confusing between points and cash. It was finally sorted out and we would definitely stay there again.
