Holiday Inn Express Seaford-Route 13

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Arrived mid-evening Friday and got the room key-cards with no hassle. Check-in was good, however with two separate room reservations made at different times, the registration clerk overlooked the paperwork for the second room until I reminder her. Rooms were comfortable, spacious, and clean. Went down the to pool the next day and the family had a good time. All in all, a good experiance

I had nothing to complain. Except the heating system that was a little noisy. We had a good time. I will go there again. There is a beautiful view on the south side of the hotel.

stayed 2 nights, staff very nice room was clean, in fast and out fast

We ended up staying at this hotel for a last minute 4th of July getaway. The room was clean and met our needs for crashing after a day at the beach. It is rather far away from most things but when there is nothing else available it is a good choice.

We have stayed at this hotel three times and have seen it decline in cleanliness over the three stays. It's not filthy, but it is not as nice as it was our first stay two years ago. The employees were very accommodating and the breakfast was fine.

My second weekend staying at the express, once again it was a delite, staff was friendly. Rooms where very clean and quiet. Every time I'm in the area this will be the hotel of choice. -D

We booked a room with a view (extra charge). We walked into our room to find that it had been completely trashed by the previous guests. Furniture was tipped over, headboards removed from the beds, mattresses on their sides. Trash was everywhere, blood was spattered on the bathroom walls, and a razor blade was in the sink. We immediately reported this to the front desk and were quickly given a different room. We found the second room to be already occupied. We walked in to find clothes hanging in the closet, open suitcases, and a TV that was on. We quickly exited the room (we could have been attacked) to once again return to the front desk. We asked that the staff investigate those two rooms and inspect the third room that they would assign us before we walk into it. The third room was vacant, but of lower quality and had no view. The hotel promised to compensate us for all this, but some NINE months have passed and they have not done so. Best to avoid this place.

On any other weekend this stay would more than likely been OK. But they don't seem to have the race weekend down yet - but don't mind charging a premium for the stay. When we went to check in our room there were people already in it. The staff told us it was impossible - yet there they were. We were told they were overbooked and at 4:00 PM when we checked in they were already sending people to other hotels. They gave us someone elses room that had not checked in yet and said they'd figure it out later. Too bad for them!! On the positive side, in this chaos, the desk clerk was very helpful and friendly. Hope she got paid well. I'll find some place else next year.

We drove 3 hours for a family party and my husband said we could drive home the same day but I wanted to stay the night and relax so I booked this hotel! Wow! We arrived at the hotel pretty late in the evening and found the receptionist very nice and helpful. She even upgraded us to a suite! The hotel was spotless(I used to own my own cleaning service so I am very picky) Our room was really nice and updated.The bed was really comfortable. Next time we will make excuses to the the family function and get to our room earlier! The free breakfast the next day was very good.I have been to other hotels and found the free breakfast half filled with the food selections,this one has everything out! We would definitely stay here again!!!

Stayed for a friend's wedding. Close to the venue and comfortable to sleep in. Great breakfast!

As expected, payed more that other hotels in the area and got little extra in return. For those needing 1 or 2 nights lodging and don't need extra "frills" there are other choices that deliver more "value". If you need the perception of "higher-end" than HIX is for you. I'd rather have a clear, comfortable room and adequate breakfast than an entreway that resembles something found in a larger market - it's over-the-top and unnecessary. It just adds to the cost of the room. The pool is an "after-thought" and a product of poor planning. If the HIX was $30 cheaper it would be my #1 choice in the area - but at current prices it delivers below-average value.

We planned a trip at the very last minute and needed a place to stay on the way. We ended up on the ground floor at the end of the hall. It was great because we had a very large room (it was one of the handicap adapted rooms) and we were far removed from the rest of the noise and activity (the hotel was otherwise FULL of little league baseball teams). The room was comfortable & clean. Breakfast in the a.m. was good. Plenty of choices and everything was fresh.

Stayed at this hotel for one night before a conference. Location was very convenient, right off the main highway. Overall the hotel was pretty average. Clean and quiet. And the room was nice, and fairly comfortable. Nice breakfast in the morning, but felt overall the price was a bit high for what you got.

I had a beautiful view of the lake, in the fall with the leaves turning to enjoy. The remote in my room didn't work, but the gal at the front desk worked hard to get me one that did- she didn't have any spare batteries. Quiet relaxing clean room.

When I called for a reservation, late on a busy night- I was told there were no rooms available, but later was able to book through Orbitz. However the rate was twice what others were paying. We were happy to get a room at that point. Room was clean, but it was a smoking room when we had booked non-smoking. A pancake breakfast was included. Desk Staff -relunctantly helpful.

The hotel room was cold could not adjust heat, could not call front desk because phone did not work other than that itwas OK

Stayed here for the weekend of the Seagull Century (south in Salisbury MD). The staff were great and clearly recognized the event and the significance of "all the bicyclists" that would be in that weekend. Breakfast was particularly good (cereal, bananas, cinnamon rolls, eggs, bacon) for getting fueled up for a whole day of bicycle riding. At this modest price it doesn't get much better.

dover race weekend chaos

GetawayWithFriends

On any other weekend this stay would more than likely been OK. But they don't seem to have the race weekend down yet - but don't mind charging a premium for the stay. When we went to check in our room there were people already in it. The staff told us it was impossible - yet there they were. We were told they were overbooked and at 4:00 PM when we checked in they were already sending people to other hotels. They gave us someone elses room that had not checked in yet and said they'd figure it out later. Too bad for them!! On the positive side, in this chaos, the desk clerk was very helpful and friendly. Hope she got paid well. I'll find some place else next year.
