Room was quiet and peaceful. Pool was very refreshing with lounge chairs available. Handicap accessable features. The breakfast area is spacious with a variety of items to please all guests. Laundry facilities on site. Easy off and easy on from I-95. Sunny checked us in with the usual cheerful smile, answered all my questions. Even went out of his way...

Raj @ the front desk was pleasant and helplful. The room was acceptable for the price and we received a AAA discount. There is a pool which made it nicer for the few hours we spent each of the four days we were there.

Rooms are clean and large, Excellent room service provided. Front desk employee Sunny does an excellent job in answering your questions and provides excellent service. After working with Sunny I will be staying here for 5 months while on business. I also worked with Roxanne who also provided me excellent service and obtained me a great price for my stay.

This property is conveniently located near I-95 and the University of Delaware. I was greeted cordially at the reception desk by Sunny who followed up with a phone call to me after I had inspected my room. My room was clean and comfortable--after I got the air conditioner temperature up from its 54 degree F. setting! No highway noise.

I booked a king bed and rollout couch for my family. Upon entering our room, I found only a king size bed, so I called the front desk to let them know they had put us in the wrong room. They asked if a rollaway bed would be ok and said it would be comparable to a rollout couch. I...
