Holiday Inn Express Harrington
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Harrington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 February 2013

I recently stayed here for two nights on business in a King Suite. The room was large, well equipment/furnished and extremely clean. On check in I found the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms included hot breakfast that consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, gravy, pancakes, cinnamon buns, cereal and various bread items as well as juices and coffee. I went down for breakfast near the end the scheduled time the first day and the food was still fresh and hot. The room was quiet but the hotel was not very busy so it was hard to judge. The hallways do smell of smoke but as soon as you get into the room the odour is gone.

The hotel is located within walking distance to several stores and restaurants in the area (and just a few minute drive to the casino where there are a few more good restaurants). It's also located on very close to a main highway intersection so getting to Dover or such can be done within 20 to 25 minutes.

For those that are planning on staying in Harrington, I would recommend to give this hotel a try, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose a room not directly above the front lobby doors. Less noise from people coming in and out.

This hotel offers very clean and comfortable accomodations/grounds, extremely friendly staff and wonderful breakfast at very good price. Stayed for two nights, houskeeping provided great service. My pet peeves when traveling are not enough towels upon arrival and dust collections in corners, this DOES NOT exist at this hotel, VERY CLEAN in all areas. Location is also very convenient.

My husband and I made a casino trip to Harrington for one night. We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express there before but it has been quite a while. The clerk at check-in was very nice and we received our Priority Club bonus...bottle of water, nabs and a piece of candy. When we got to our room, it smelled of smoke even though it was on a non-smoking floor. They immediately moved us to another room that was very nice. It was clean and comfortable and actually had electric sockets in convenient places for us to plug in our laptops (most places don't) The internet worked very well. It is a short drive to the Harrington casino and not that far from Dover Downs. We didn't eat breakfast there but I did go in for a cup of coffee and everything looked and smelled good. We used to stay at the hotel down the road because they allowed pets and it was cheaper. We have 3 chihuahuas and for $20 we could take the dogs. The last time we went there, they wanted to charge $20 per dog..no thanks! This motel is much cleaner, friendlier and all around nicer and this is where we will stay (even though we have to leave the pups at home with their sitter! :) Highly recommend it! Thanks for a very enjoyable stay..we will be back!

Normally I stay at a 'cheaper' Motel down the street when I visit the Casino. This time a great price was available through Hotwire ($69/all inclusive), which made it the same price as the cheaper Motel. Loved the comfortable beds, pillows & linens. The free breakfast was an excellent touch. Will stay here again!

Room Tip: Get the non smoking room. Try the King size bed, awesome!

Stayed at the hotel when I was down to visit family. First impressions are important. Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff, clean rooms and location is great. Located in within a 5 minute drive or they offer a free shuttle from 2pm to 7am. Lots of food chains within walking distance and shopping within 15 min drive south. Free continental breakfast, which was great. Loved this hotel. Only thing i can say is the tv's need to be updated and if you dont like a firm bed it might be a little uncomfortable. But worth the stay!

Stayed here for two nights at the end of a holiday weekend. First night everything was fine.
Second night, while getting ready for bed I began to smell cigarette smoke. Though the hotel did not seem to have a high occupancy, I did hear guests in the room above me. Poor hotel construction and sound proofing does mean you will hear the guests in the floor above. I thought they must be the smokers and somehow it was filtering into my room. But when leaving my room in the morning I noticed the room beside me was occupied and was a smoking room! That's crazy. You think they would have separate floors for smokers. Though I found this a good location and good hotel overall, this issue would definitely keep me from returning.

Room Tip: be sure to inquire about smoking room locations.

Dear guest, we apologize you were inconvenienced by a near by smoking room during your recent stay with us. Our property currently only has less than 10% smoking rooms. Since the number of smoking rooms is so low we do not have an entire smoking floor. However we do have 100% non smoking floors and will be more than happy to accommodate this request for our guests. If you will consider our property again in the future please feel free to give us a call and we will update your profile with a special request for a 100% non smoking floor.

We stayed here on the way home from a long trip.

We arrived around 330pm and were welcomed with a smile! My Priority membership was recognized and we received some goodies.

The room was as it should be. Very clean with the necessary amenities.

The internet worked well.

After some time at the local casino, we returned and had a restful sleep. The bed was comfortable and the heat system, tough a bit noisy, was good and constant.

We rose early and enjoyed a pleasant complementary breakfast. The hot items were hot and the cold was cold. The lady handling things was very nice and kept the area clean and stocked.

I have stayed in Dover and Harrington and this is a favorite place for us.
