My sons ice hockey team was participating in a tournament at the university of Delaware and we were booked in this hotel and it was horrible.

Stopped here for an over night to visit my daughter at UD then head south to UMD with my other. The hotel is clean, staff friendly and the morning breakfast buffet has good variety and fresh food.

Thank you, so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. As far as the bathroom lightening, the bulbs are mandated by IHG and is what we must use so there's not a lot we can do about that. The longer the bulbs are on the brighter they get. We appreciate your feedback and will make note of the issue. More

This Holiday Inn Express is outstanding -- spacious, spotlessly clean rooms, plenty of parking, and friendly staff (seriously, the staff is FABULOUS). As well, breakfast is delicious -- many different items, both hot and cold. Will definitely stay again.
