This in offers all you need for a weekend or week especially if you are on work assignment. The place is clean and offers something for everyone even children. Just be careful to look at your card statement.

We spent one night here on our way from ME to Virginia. Location was convenient to highway with plenty of restaurants nearby. Staff was friendly, our room was clean and breakfast was good. We didn't use the pool because of the weather but it looked clean and was good-sized. The hotel overall gets an average rating from me due to the layout of the property. It seems like an apartment complex that was made over into a hotel. As a result, each room is its own unit. Our first floor unit was right on the walkway so we had to keep blinds closed for privacy. Though nothing happened to make me feel unsafe it felt less secure than other Marriott properties due to the layout. It also appeared some units may still be apartments, though I suppose they could simply be long-term hotel guests. It was fine for a quick overnight but I wouldn't choose this hotel as a base for a longer stay.

This location was a bit tricky to find, but we were very happy after we did locate it. Our unit was near the pool and main office where breakfast was served. The outdoor pool was very nice. Our unit was quiet and spacious. We both slept very well.

I read the reviews from others that said this property was older and others had hot water problems, but decided to give it a try since the price was pretty good and we needed the space for three of us over several days. When we checked in we noticed mouse droppings under the sink where the garbage can was. They appeared to be old so i just cleaned them out and took the garbage can out. No big deal for a ground floor room. The room is older and the mattresses were soft, but again not bad for the price of the room. The hot breakfast was average. The disappointing part of the stay is the high speed wifi is not high speed and it constantly disconnected causing issues. I paid the extra five dollars a night and still had the same issues. I shouldn't have to log in every time i need to use a device. The other disappointing aspect is the cold showers we all had to take. Even my sister-in-law who was staying in another part of the complex complained to me of a cold shower. For these last two reasons i rate this place poor instead of average. The place really needs to do something about the hot water. Also, I-95 is very close so road noise is constant but after the first night it becomes white noise. Some positives: Polite, friendly staff; location is good with Christiana Mall nearby with good restaurants and Target for shopping. Fitness facility is very small but serviceable with 2 treadmills, a recumbent bike, an elliptical and some dumbbells.

We had the 2 bedroom room and it was great! We also brought our dog with us. We had plenty of room and the kids slept upstairs and had their own bathroom and we had a king size bed downstairs with our own bathroom. It will be hard to go back to a "normal" hotel room after staying here. The breakfast was good too.

The staff was very friendly. Check in was quick and easy. The room was nice and quiet, I got some of the best sleep I have had in a while there. The breakfast provided was amazing and more than expected.

This hotel was just okay for me. My room was not cleaned properly, the staff was pleasant though. The staff who cleaned the room was very difficult to understand so I was not able to communicate my needs.

This hotel was picked for our team to stay while in the area for a soccer tournament. After staying in another Residence Inn in Richmond, VA, I was worried this hotel would not meet my needs to having 2 beds in the room for my daughter and I to sleep. I called the hotel the day before the arrival and I was told that I was in a room with 2 beds. Upon my arrival, the lady at the front desk told me they had to move some people around, but I wasn't moved because I had called. This started the weekend on the right foot. The hotel was clean and acceptable for the 2 nights I had to be there. The location was good, close to the soccer fields, to the highway, and to shopping. I was traveling with my teenage daughter. The staff was very help and quick to fix the toilet when I told them it was running and didn't work correctly. The breakfast was good and was a bonus to the stay.

Stayed here while attending a Soccer Tournament in Hockessin. Overall, good location, easy to get to. Definitely an older Residence Inn, but the lobby / breakfast area had been completely remodeled. Breakfast was very good! Rooms are very large and spacious. Not the cleanest Marriott hotel, but it was bearable. Unfortunately our room did not have hot water, however the front desk was accommodating and let us use the vacant room next door, This was still obviously an inconvenience, but things happen. Late checkout request was granted for our last day there which was much appreciated.

We were visiting University of Delaware and this was a great location. Rooms are large and comfortable. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was expansive, coffee could be improved. Enjoyed the Paul Mitchell soaps/shampoos.
