Stayed here while attending a Soccer Tournament in Hockessin. Overall, good location, easy to get to. Definitely an older Residence Inn, but the lobby / breakfast area had been completely remodeled. Breakfast was very good! Rooms are very large and spacious. Not the cleanest Marriott hotel, but it was bearable. Unfortunately our room did not have hot water, however the...

We were visiting University of Delaware and this was a great location. Rooms are large and comfortable. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was expansive, coffee could be improved. Enjoyed the Paul Mitchell soaps/shampoos.

When making reservations for this property, I was concerned because I don’t typically like staying at motels (rooms open to outside/no internal hallways). With that said, this was the nicest suite style Marriott property in the area to accommodate our family for the 5 night stay over Christmas break. When we checked in, we were pleased with the friendly staff,...

Our family of 5 stayed here for 1 night as a stopping point between VA and NYC. I wish we would have read the reviews before staying and kept moving to the Towneplace Suites. We were on the first floor right across from the welcome center. Our upstairs neighbors spent a good portion of the night stomping and dropping large...

This is an older Marriott property and, by and large, it shows. It could use a refurbishment (new carpets in room, etc.). The buildings have the doors to the rooms on the outside (reachable by outside stairs to landings, for example), My personal preference is to have the room door on an inside hallway. Maybe it is a matter of...

My wife and I attempted a one night stay (using Marriott Points) at this location. We arrived around 10pm on Saturday 9/10.

Really nice cottage style hotel. Room was very clean! Great breakfast! Staff helpful! Kids liked walking from room to the main house. Pool looked nice. Located near highways, gas stations, restaurants and stores. 10 minutes from University of Delaware's campus.

This location was an ideal stopping point between Long Island and Virginia Beach.
