  • 8.0.Very good

    Our room was clean but the hallways were not as clean as, as I like and a rug was very dingy and dirty looking.

    Decent for Bear, De. Convenient To I-95

    Second time visit, hotel is average and suffices needs. I stayed on second floor pre-covid 2019 and first floor in 2021. IMO, The rooms are larger and quieter on second floor. I’m particular about cleanliness, and this hotel is always decently kept. The only issue is the $350 hold for incidentals, that is too much and crazy for this property rating . I visited 5star hotels that don’t even charge that much for a deposit. But, I it was apparent after the draft of marijuana came in to my room from next door after 1am. I was not bothered, but can understand why this might be a issue/irritating for guests. I know the area, so it was expected for Newark/ Bear area. It’s not an affluent area and for the hotel price, you cant be choosy/ a Karen.

    Outstanding staff. Especially Susan

    I have to say, after a crazy week of hotels this was the best. The service was the shining star. The person who checked us in was friendly and helpful. Susan who was working the morning we left was outstanding and extremely helpful. The beds need updating but please tell the staff they are amazing.

    Unsatisfactory

    The room and hallways smelled like urine. It was not a pleasant experience to stay at this hotel. Would not recommend.

    Only issue was the AC unit. Sometimes it smelled like the filter needed to be changed but overall, it was a decent stay

  • 4.0.Fair

    Outdated but not horrible...

    Very very dated hotel. I highly recommend bringing a HEPA air filter and leaving it on while you're out because it will make a world of a difference in air quality. This place claims to be smoke-free but walking through the halls you will think differently. In need of some fairly major repairs. Staff wasn't unfriendly but not overtly welcoming. The one staff person we loved was the woman putting out the breakfast; she was sweet. Breakfast was pre-packaged but not bad.

  • 6.0.Good

    Below average

    Room Door did not close all the way. Door would stick when tried to close. Fridge door sticks. Hallways were super gross, smelled bad, dirty carpets, hotel staff was not friendly. Reception didn’t even say hi back to me when checking me in. Breakfast was a joke with pre packaged cereal and little muffins.

    Customer service needs help

    I actually really liked the set up of the suite. It was perfect for my family. What wasnt so perfect waa the way i was treated when i arrived. There is a mask mandate posted so of course i put my mask on. The front desk receptionist did not have a mask on. When i approached and greated her she told me to hang on and proceeded to do 5 minutes of paperwork whule myself and another person stood in line and the phones were ringing off the hook. When she finally finished her tasks she was very abrupt with me. She handed me the keys without telling me anything about how to get to my room, where i should park, etc. I would never stay again just based on the customer service which is a shame because the actual room is quite nice.
