“2:30am attempted forced entry!!!”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

I stay in DE once a year, usually Days Inn in Dover. Decided to try Super 8 in Harrington this year. It was the worst experience ever!!! When we arrived, the front desk attendant had already billed my credit card for 3 nights which, for starters, did not please me. Once in the room we notice the door doesn't shut properly without really pushing on it. The room was dirty and towels were stained. All of that I could of dealt with but during our 2nd night we were awoken at 2:30am by someone trying to force themselves into our room. The man was yelling and was very irrate! At 2:30am when you get woke up like that you think the worse!! The man had our door open and had his hand inside trying to move the safety bar off the door that we thankfully had been using. After my boyfriend jumping out of bed and screaming at the guy to get out the man left. The front desk called moments after this happened and explained they had given the man our room and activated his key to our room. Terrible experience!! We had our 9 and 6 year old in the room who were terrified! We left the motel and went to Days Inn were we should of stayed from the beginning!

Stayed November 2013, travelled with family

I apologize for the late night issue. There have been changes due to new ownership and have caused confusion among staff. This kind of occurrence will never happen again. The staff member on duty apologizes over and over again for the mishap. As for the quality of the room, we are sorry to hear of your disappointment, we are in the midst of making major changes to the rooms and overall property. Renovations are being carried out during the winter months to update and clean up all the rooms. If I had known earlier of your disappointed stay, I could have made changes to accommodate you better. Once again sorry for everything that has happened, I can assure you that major changes are occurring to prevent things like this from happening.
