Normally, when visiting family, we stay at the Comfort Inn Delaware (formally the Super 8), but we were given a better rate at the Best Western; so we thought we would try it out. When we arrived at the hotel on New Year’s Day at 1:30 a.m., we were greeted with a smile and friendly service. Check-in was fast and uneventful. The hallways had new carpet and looked nice and clean. They have a pool and hot tub when you first walk in.
Our room number was 128, near the end of the hall a few doors away from the breakfast area. The room was CLEAN and UPDATED with nice bedcovering. The mattresses were comfortable and no beg bugs. There were some minor scratches on the furniture, which is to be expected with dark wood. In the room was a flat screen TV, with a remote that is cleaned (if you stay here, you will know what I am talking about), small desk with a chair, coffee maker, a padded chair, microwave, small refrigerator, iron board, and blow dryer.
The sink is located in the bedroom not in the bathroom. The bathroom was CLEAN but NOT UPDATED. The door had some white paint on it, and the toilet knob was busted as well as the side of the toilet. The shower curtain was clean.
Spending all day with family, we were exhausted and couldn’t wait to get to bed. Unfortunately, we heard teenage kids running back and forth above us until 5:30 a.m. I told my husband to turn the fan on in our room to block out some of the noise, but it only worked a little. We could have called the front desk, but we were too tired. I really blame the parents on this one, not the hotel. The second night, they had checked out; so no issues whatsoever. Next visit, we will ask to be upstairs.
Breakfast room was clean. They had yogurt, apples, bananas, four types of cereal, coffee, juice, sausage, bacon, hash browns, little muffins, bread, something that looks like an egg cheese omelet and a waffle maker that you can make your own waffle. When we arrived on New Year’s Day, it didn’t seem full of food as it did on January 2nd. They did add apple, cherry, and lemon filled danishes the next day, which were so good.
If you arrive on the weekends, they will have biscuits and gravy, too. Bridgette, who works in the breakfast room, seven days a week, was very nice and did a great job keeping things clean! My only suggestion to the hotel is to have bottle water. I don’t like getting tap water from the sink for me and my daughter.
If you don’t like their food or coffee, then go to Starbucks, which is right in front of the hotel. If you are wanting a big breakfast or more to eat, then go to Bob Evans, which is just down the street.
We had plan to use their pool and hot tub, which looked really nice and clean, but we found the pool room to be too cold inside (temperature in the hallways were warmer) and the water in the pool was cold too. It was 18 degrees outside that day, so that could have been the problem. My 10-year-old daughter was disappointed because we always go swimming before we head out. If this is important to you, check the temperature first before checking in!
Would I recommend this hotel? Absolutely.
