Holiday Inn Express Seaford-Route 13
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Seaford
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Seaford-Route 13 the nights of August 9 - 10 for a Sports at the Beach Baseball Tournament mainly because it was only 15 minutes from the ballpark and I have usually had very good experiences with HIE.

They put us in room on the top floor that had a STRONG MOLD ODOR and the wall paper near the window and roof line was raised up like there had been a past roof leak that had manifested into mold under the wallpaper. Like others have noted, I had to use my cell phone to call the front desk because the room phone did not work. They could not give us a new room because they were sold out (other unwitting baseball parents), so we bit the bullet and stayed.

I ended up getting a major nasal infection and lost my ability to smell for 2 months until the second dose of antibiotics and many nasal rinses finally got me back to normal.

Room Tip: Stay away from the top floor.

We did not see any notice that this hotel was under renovations and it definitely needs it. The upper floors seem to be completed but the lobby is still under construction. The hotel is located right off the highway and the noise from trucks and vehicles all night long was very disturbing. Our room was not right by the elevator but the dinging of the elevator door also kept us up as well as just regular noise in the halls. The renovation should include lower the bell noise and soundproofing the doors and windows! Breakfast had NO fruit just cereal, eggs, toast, etc...

Also the television is really small in comparison to most hotels.

Room Tip: If you must stay here would suggest you get room at end of hallway and at the backside of hotel to a...

There isn't a lot to choose from in this part of Delaware and when the hotel we usually stay at was full I sighed and booked the Holiday Inn Express. I figured it should be clean at least. It was more than clean, it was refreshed! The rooms has been recently renovated and the lobby and public spaces were fresh and immaculate. To add to the pleasant surprise our room looked out over the lake.
The breakfast was hot and fresh, with eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, warm cinnamon rolls and all other manner of continental breakfast goodies.
The staff was friendly, helpful, efficient and always smiling.
I will definitely book another stay there when I am back in Seaford.
Thanks Holiday Inn Express, Seaford DE!

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the lake

We took this hotel as a last minute plan to go to Dover Race. It's about 35 miles away so we at first were disappointed. We got to the hotel Saturday after being at the track for hours and did not want to travel any more. Tge room wS great 2 TVs a sitting room and bedroom SLL very clean. There were places to eat including Friendlys in walking distance. The free hot breakfast and coffee was a great touch in the 2 mornings we were there. The people were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again!!

We have stayed here before on our way traveling south on Route 13. You get what you pay for in this property. There was no indication on the web page that there is construction going on in the lobby and breakfast area. We were warmly greeted as a HI Platinum member, room was just fine on the 4th floor. Typical HI Express decore. I asked for a room with a quiet AC unit and that was achieved. Breakfast was bare minimum in a noisy, under construction breakfast room. TV and music on at the same time....OM. Desk clerk never looked up when we were leaving. The best part of this stop is the Mexican restaurant across the highway. If you are on a budget, looking to stop one night, it will do. Will be better when the construction is finished.

Room Tip: Top floor in the rear of the building.

Thank you for your second review of our hotel. We are pleased you chose to stay with us again in Seaford. We apologize your breakfast experience wasn't up to our high standards. We will try our best to inform you and our other guests of any renovations ahead of time. The renovations are almost done, with just the installation of drapery and the fireplace tile left to complete. I have informed our front desk staff to mind the combination of the lobby music and television as well as to thank you for staying with us. Feel free to contact either me or Carol Powell our General Manager about any suggestions. We sincerely hope to see you again and look forward to exceeding your expectations.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and it was the worst hotel of my fifty years of traveling experience. Why? Once in my room, I could not make the television work. I picked up the phone to report the problem and the phone was dead. Two lights were not working so I went down to the front desk to report these problems. Later, the lights were fixed, but the television never worked. When I got in the shower, the water did not drain and I discovered a huge glob of hair around the drain.

I cannot imagine Holiday Inn Express continuing to allow this hotel to use their highly regarded name.
