Very very clean, immaculate! Attentive front desk staff, guest room was in perfect conditon. and the best breakfast (free!) in years. The scrambled eggs were freshly made, home made taste and texture.

We stayed here while we attended the NASCAR races in Dover. We couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. The staff we encountered were all very professional. The culinary staff gave great care to preparing and serving the complimentary breakfast. The dining area was always kept scrupulously clean. The desk staff provided great directions and tips for sightseeing. The housecleaning staff was very thorough and timely with their duties. Bravo!

This place is superb. It is pretty new and it shows. The place is spotless, the rooms are plenty big and the bed is....OMG......seriously the best night sleep I had for months, and I have a good bed at home.

There is no bar or evening restaurant, but it does include a buffet hot and cold breakfast. It is amoung the best I've ever had at a hotel.

The local area doesn't have alot close by, but it is more geared towards business so that's fine. Saying that, a 10 minutes drive down the road you hit the "main strip" of newark and it is a pleasure. Pubs and restaurants delivery any need you are looking for.

Check in and check out were easy, this is my second visit and have never had to queue, the hotel is quiet, almost as if it's Delaware's best kepp secret (hotel wise).

It also has a Gym and Swimming pool, what more could you want?!

The main purpose of my trip was to visit Delaware Park Casino and I noticed this property was a lot cheaper (50%) than the Hilton alternative for the dates I wished to visit.

Location:
There is also plenty of parking and is within 2-3 miles of the main entrance to Delaware Park so is ideally situated.

Bedroom:
Very spacious (in fact, I'm not sure they even need to big that big!), large comfortable bed and decent size tv with a few HD channels. Bathroom had a walk-in double shower and plenty of toiletries. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Wi-Fi was included in the room rate.

Facilities:
Walked past the pool to get to the gym. Was empty when I went and had 2 treadmills, 1 cross-trainer and (I think) a bike machine. Water machine and plenty of fresh towels, air-conditioned and a large tv all to myself.

Breakfast:
Buffet-style included in the room rate and eaten in the large dining area (which kind of reminded me of a large lodge/cabin). Bacon and omelettes were the hot food supplied along with lots of pastries, youghurts, breads, fruit, muffins, etc. What was even better was that I was able to take some food away in a take-away bag in preparation for my long drive.

Staff:
Pleasant staff. In the morning at breakfast, the member of staff was very courteous and even recommended I take some food away (I can imagine some staff in other hotels not being happy at guests taking away breakfast buffet food!!!). I managed to get a late check-out as I was running a little late - I was not made to rush.

Overall:
Excellent value. I have rated this 5, not because it is comparable to a 5* hotel (because it isn't), but for the category it lies in (a 3* hotel), it represents exceptional value for money and exceeds my expectations at that level.

Stayed to attend our daughter's concert at the University of Delaware last evening. Beautiful hotel, decor-wise; room very comfortable and quiet; bathroom large and well-lit, with two things I hadn't seen in other hotels--shelving for toiletries and a night light (the soap and lotion also smelled very nice); the free breakfast buffet was delicious and offered much more than continental items (such as scrambled eggs and fruit salad). Would highly recommend this hotel, and especially because it's very reasonably priced for all that it offers guests.

They delivered what I would expect for a fair price. The room was clean and nice. Bedding and all was comfortable and pleasant. Breakfast buffet was clean and good with a nice presentation in a nice area. Staff was professional and nice. No complaints at all.
