Needed a getaway

We wanted something close to Chesapeake City and this was a very reasonable rate. It was easy to find the motel. A perk was an upgrade from what we booked, 2 Double beds, to a king. Very nice of them.

The Best By Far

My son and I are ALWAYS taking trips from Texas to Connecticut, stopping through Wilmington, DE in the process. We weren't expecting much from this hotel as far as anything went, but it was priced nicely and we had lots to do. When we arrived for check in, the person at the front desk was very nice and made eye contact when he spoke to me. He told me my room was ready and to let him know if we needed anything. Because of previous experiences in various hotels in the same area, I have become accustomed to bringing my own disinfectant and air freshener when getting a room...neither was needed in this case. Not only was it incredibly clean, it smelled so fresh it made me smile involuntarily. You can tell they actually wash the linens AND blankets!!! It was quiet and all the appliances were clean and in proper working order. The bathroom was like something out of a magazine and exceeded my expectations. The toilet was clean, the shower curtain wasn't stained with mold or mildew and the inside of the shower itself didn't make my skin crawl. Upon our departure, a different gentleman was at the front desk and he was just as polite as the one that checked us in and asked (with genuine concern) about our visit. As often as we visit Delaware, this will be our new place to stay. Thank you for making this visit a completely enjoyable one.

near the college

The hotel needs a lot of work. I choose it because I knew we were arriving late and leaving early. The location was right down the road from the college. If I had to stay longer I would find another place.

Value for money

Good value for money located about 1/2 hour walk from the edge of the U. Delaware campus. There was a pool that looked OK, the computer in the office was a bit finicky but OK. Everything is there that's needed including a nice diner next door.

quick in and out

Overall experience was positive, even thought water boiler went busted in the hotel and half of the building did not have hot water. As a result I had "to miss morning shower" for excusable reasons. Hotel personal has been very nice.
