I attended a Marriage Retreat during my stay here this past weekend (02/18-02/20) I understand that other guests will be there during this time However, this is one of the WORST experiences in my life

From kids running around in the halls and all times of the night, open beer and alcoholic beverages being left opened around kids from adults in the atrium, to broken elevator switches There was no security on the premises Only one clerk was there overnight during this weekend d The hotel manager NEVER showed up and there was a wedding there as well I mean this was utterly UNACCEPTABLE! How could you not have staffed this correctly? How could not even try to have a maintenance fixonf elevators when you were told that children have been playing with the buttons and causing disruptions Parents acted like they weren’t responsible for their children’s behavior That’s not the hotel’s fault but there needed to be some security or someone to maintain order Kids were knocking on my door at 2 and 3am, just for fun Being charged $370 for what? For this experience? Absolutely not! And on top of that, the hot water for the showers were almost nonexistent Felt like I was washing dishes while washing myself The marriage retreat was awesome The Hotel Experience, was absolutely horrible I strongly recommend you rethink making reservations here The staff tried their best but it was too much to overlook

My family and I have loved going to this hotel for more than a decade, and we’ve all passed the love to our children It is a 👍🏾 place for the kids to swim and enjoy a nice free HOT breakfast, unlike that continental trash offered at other places They are clean and the staff is always professional and nice

I only took off a star because you now have to ask for all housekeeping services and literally beg for towels, which shouldn’t be for those who stay multiple nights

Darvon Bartholomew

Terrible stay The room was dirty white stains on the chair, desktop sticky Sheets dirty, urine in elevator

Kids with no shirts running all around the hotel,People take my word for it this was such a bad hotel We booked 3 rooms for two nights as we came for a family affair It was so bad I went to front desk to describe the condition of my room but the guy at the desk didn’t care He said no refunds He was very nasty never even looked up We took the loss and notified our credit card company we checked out and went to another hotel and we were able to sleep without feeling dirty This hotel could never get above 2 stars because it’s TERRIBLE

I just wanna start with the cleanliness it was immaculate Then the hospitality and customer service that we received from not only the owner but the employees were amazing So very nice and accommodating

The continental breakfast they provide is not mediocre The owner cooks in the kitchen himself and there were a plethora of options to choose from Pastries, fresh waffles, parfaits, omelets, breakfast meats, toast, cereal, I mean you name it … it was awesome 10/10 would recommend staying here You won’t be disappointed

Pool was gross Bed was bad Noisy AC unit outside window of room 231

I would not have chosen this hotel except it was the only Indoor pool open on a Sunday within 30 min from South Jersey I was hopeful after seeing good reviews Must have overlooked all the bad ones, and there are lots Disappointing for a Hampton InnGood: Clean, spacious room, nice bathroom with new shower (no bath), and hot breakfast with nice man cooking/maintaining itBad: Bed was old and hard Noise outside window sounded like a garbage truck running all night, and the indoor pool was cloudy with garbage floating on the surfaceIt being a Sunday we were one of about 10 people in the whole hotel Robert working the front desk was very nervous about giving us a pool time prior to check in even thought we were the only ones with a reservation that whole day and we were limited to one hour It was very nice of him to prepare our room prior to check in Though it was surprising from other reviews this is known to be one of the worst rooms (231) The room was spacious but I wish I tested the bed before getting in to sleep because it was horrible, but with my child falling asleep and everything unpacked I could not switch rooms at that point Even with a sound machine the noise from the AC unit was so loud it was hard to sleep well The hot breakfast was nice Wish they offered drinking water somewhere in the hotel

Nina Nichelle

Lobby decor was nice Room decor was simple Nice clean room

Only issues were 1 It took a really long time for the water to get hot We Had to run the water for about 7 mins straight before it finally kicked in And the evening lobby attendant was away from the desk for a long period of time when they were needed The Complimentary Breakfast selection was great 4th floor was quiet

Very clean and comfortable place to stay Nicai made sure we where we’ll taken care of and even put a cold beer in my hand as soon as I walked in The lovely lady in the lounge served us meatballs and vegetables for dinner and had served a beautiful breakfast with fresh hot coffee! First time I felt like I was actually on vacation sense we started our trip!

Ana Castillo

For the price it’s ok Not the greatest hotel What made this place good and I gave them an extra star was the people

Staff was extremely nice They worked with us when they switched our rooms without any notice We checked in our rooms and found one room reeked of smoke, they quickly changed it to a much better room Breakfast was ok, my expectation wasn’t high so I wasn’t disappointed Overall I will not be staying here unless I really had to If you go expecting 5 star hotel experience your in for a world of disappointment

Catherine Atkinson

DO NOT STAY HERE Our reservation was not kept This hotel “walked” us to another hotel by calling the day of our stay to say they had moved us to another hotel

However the second hotel had no record of this Went to STAYBRIDGE and the desk clerk told us it was NOT HIS PROBLEM No manager on site despite it being early afternoon Thoroughly disgusted with customer service and no room offered despite having reservation confirmation well in advance Did nothing to help us find a room elsewhere Zero stars, zero chance of booking this chain again

Staff at the front desk was nice and accommodating Location is great The room was dirty

It looked as though the room had not been vacuumed or really cleaned They did give us fresh sheets though Well, on one of the beds The other one was missing sheets when we got into bed and no one was answering the phone at the front desk No shampoo orconditioner in the room (when we called, they didn’t have any so we were given a partial bottle from another room) The AC in the living area had to be serviced and the plugs in the bathroom didn’t work Parking is also sub par Not enough spots for the number of guests Overall, we probably won’t stay here again I can’t imagine what it will look like in a few years with the lack of cleaning!

Lillia W.

When I arrived to my room, it had a strong smell of weed I requested to be moved to another room which was fine but the sheets on the bed in the room were not clean and they only had 1 set of towels I the room After requesting more towels in the morning, they didn’t have any available

We didn’t get towels until that night I have seen much better breakfasts at other hotels as well I expected significantly more from my stay Wouldn’t stay again

Being someone who rarely posts negative reviews, I felt very much compelled to give my candid feedback on my experience during the check-in at this hotelWe arrived on Memorial Day morning and was appalled by the rude and impatient receptionist at the front desk The young lady was visibly displeased that she had to cut short her break and attended to us at front desk

She declined to check us in by telling us that my credit card used for reservation, which was already paid in full, was denied by her system to serve as incidental charge card She refused to take another card I proffered and made me call the booking agency I used and resolve the mix-up, which I didn’t quite understand the whole time, by myselfShe made no attempt to display any professional courtesy to make us feel welcomed at all She almost willed that with her horrible attitude we would turn around, walk away and leave her aloneI feel obliged to highlight the incident and the individual since such an occurrence and employee do not belong to the highly regarded Hilton franchise and the hospitality industry in generalThe one star review applies squarely to the above referenced individual Having said that, as a receptionist at front desk she represented the hotel more than anybody else Her behavior and attitude unfortunately reflected very poorly on the establishment she’s supposed to represent

Cleanliness was an issue 2nd floor hallway was heavily perfumed with automatic sprays The room has a mustiness to it…

Automatic sprays didn’t help the room So pretty sure the hallway smell was masked by the air fresheners Was only staying 1 night so not a big deal We went out right after check in to enjoy our day Got back late The bathroom looked like it had patch repair water damage and the wallpaper was peeling After about an hour in the room we noticed that around all the baseboards there was a line of what looked like cat litter And then there was cockroaches We tapped out at that point We checked out and went to the Fairview Very clean thereAt this Hilton I booked a double room and got a king handicap assessable room instead That part isn’t a big deal but the fact that I had all these issues in a room I wasn’t even supposed to have and not get a full refund is ridiculous My room rate was $244 including tax I wasn’t expecting the tax to be refunded but was expecting to get the full room rate back I was only given 30% backSeriously reconsidering being a Hilton Honors member

Deidre Mitchelli

The carpet in our room reeks of urine that is masked with cleaner that creates a sticky residue So “floor is lava” at this hotel Very disappointing, luckily the window opens to let fresh air in

The bed is comfy thankfully Unbelievable at this price point to have a room in this condition and very unusual in my long history of Hilton stay

Ryan Wenger

Staff came to our room asking if our 7 year old son was jumping around because they “received” a noise complaint and asked for him to stop It was 3:30 pm on a Thursday I said ok but was bewildered there was an issue

My son walks quietly (did not run at all) but did jump from bed to bed twice Later that night my son told me that on the drive to the hotel that morning he was super excited to go to a hotel but now he was super excited to leave the hotel He asked why did they get mad at him when he wasn’t making a lot of noise It broke my heart because I remember how exciting it was to go to hotels as a kid and they took that from him To make it worse, the pool was shut down by the health inspector based on the note on the pool door When my wife asked about it when we were checking out the next day, the staff denied it and said it was closed due to maintenance Again There was a note from the health inspector that says he closed it down The staff was either lying or completely unaware of what is going on in their hotel Add in the fact that the elevator was past due for it’s inspection and made some curious noises made this a terrible end to our trip I’ve always had great stays at Hilton Garden Inns in the past and this is not a negative post on them but for this specific hotel I highly suggest finding another hotel to stay at, especially for families

My husband and I came for a few days and it was Amazing! We parked the car and it never moved We walked around the town, shopping and very nice restaurants The Inn was beautiful inside, the room was so clean and nicely decorated, and we loved the breakfast

An abundant amount of delicious foods The innkeepers were kind, friendly, and extremely hospitable! Having the deck right on the canal was a wonderful surprise Thank you Ship Watch Inn for a wonderful few days We will be back for sure

Tori Falkenstein

I cannot say enough good things about the Ship Watch Inn We booked the entire Inn for our wedding weekend All the rooms have been updated and look like something out of a magazine

The staff were very friendly and went above and beyond for us The views from each room are absolutely stunning Breakfast was provided to us every morning and it was delicious The Inn is definitely worth booking for whatever occasion you have coming up We absolutely loved our experience and will be booking many more stays in the future

Hey You Harry was a fantastic host We were in Maryland for a wedding and wanted somewhere different to stay other than a hotel chain We found Elk Forge and we are so glad we did

It’s a wonderful old house with loads of character The rooms were clean, the AC was cold and it was a short drive to the wedding venue We would definitely stay at Elk Forge again Thank you, Harry!

Jacquelyn McCullough

The reason for my 3 star review is the lack of an actual breakfast other than continental items despite their website and signage at the inn saying that they would serve an actual breakfast I would have selected a different bed and BREAKFAST if I had known that this was the case Aside from that, I really enjoyed the rest of the inn

It has a very charming antique feel and lots of cute places to vegetate, read, etc The pricing is also comparable to/lower than most of the reputable hotels in the surrounding area

Deborah Montgomery

I really want to rate this higher, because I have returned here several times I will start by saying that it’s a beautiful place, in a great area It is in Maryland, but right near the Delaware and Pennsylvania lines

We have really enjoyed our experience here before, which is why we kept coming back I think it had been about 4 years since we had visited before returning recently I think because of COVID, they started with contactless check-in and check-out There is a phone in the lobby to reach the owners if needed We had no problem with checking in and finding our room We have always stayed in the least expensive rooms, which are up a lot of stairs on the 3rd floor It was very hot out during our stay this time I was concerned when it was increasingly hot going up the stairs, but it was nice and cool in the upstairs hallway, and in our room The room is fairly small, but adequate There’s a jetted tub, electric fireplace, and TV with Roku in the room There is a bathroom, though the double doors are a little strange, and there was no curtain on the bathroom window It faced the roof, so I guess that was ok, but the sun shone into the room brightly at 6:30 am because of that I would definitely prefer a curtain in the bathroom There’s a dispenser in the shower for soap, shampoo, and conditioner, which was nice The shower never got completely hot, just warm, which wasn’t as niceThe rooms are all decorated with different themes I have enjoyed the decor in every room we have stayed in However, the bed was terribly hard and uncomfortable I do remember having an uncomfortable bed before, but not this bad It was a very fitful and painful sleep, unfortunately This is the very low point of the stay for me I was glad we were only staying one night There are black-out curtains in the room, which I appreciate, but since there was no curtain in the bathroom, which faces the bed, with doors that don’t fully cover, the sun was shining brightly in the room by 6:30 It was ok, since we hadn’t slept well anywayWe went down to breakfast right at 7 The breakfast has always been good, and didn’t disappoint this time There was a wide variety- something for everyone There was fresh fruit, hard-boiled eggs, yogurt and granola, make your own waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, and an assortment of bagels and bread with a toaster I think the coffee was something like maxwell house, which we didn’t really like We are pretty particular about our coffee, though- and grind ours from beans each morning We enjoyed everything elseThere are 2 paths on the grounds, which we took walks on It was more overgrown than it has been before, but was still pretty nice There’s an area that people can rent out for weddings and such, and we noted that would be pretty All of the grounds, around the house and the rental area, were more overgrown than we have seen beforeThere is a spa if you want to book a massage or something like that during your visit, as well We have never tried thatA couple of other things to note- there are books to borrow, and nice places to sit inside the house in various places In the past, they have had water and hot tea available We were disappointed that wasn’t the case this time Again, maybe due to covid? There were a couple of small water bottles in our room Also, there used to be a shelf of games, and a microwave available to use on the way up to the 3rd floor We had brought microwave popcorn, anticipating that However, neither were there this timeAll in all, I really like this Bed and breakfast It is lovely, and the breakfast is always good However, I don’t think I will return until there are new mattresses in the 3rd floor rooms

The hotel was close to campus and thedesk staff were pleasant There was an awful moldy smell in the hallways (several different hallways, over two days) The beds were okay, but not super comfortable

And, the “restaurant” offering breakfast was all microwaved food Overall, the hotel was clean and the rates were great But, I don’t think we’d return unless other options are sold out

Rawlings Vadanga

Friendly staff, spacious and great location However seems a mismatch to have old thermostats in such a modern hotel, especially if they don’t work Got to the hotel at 11:45 pm after a long drive on a winter night

Thermostat did not work Waited for about 30 mins, no luck It was a close to 1:50 am when I finally got another roomManager told me she would call me since she had just got to work when I checked out She didn’t

Laura Forrester

We checked in for our wedding weekend, and learned they gave our suite away to someone else They put us in a normal room, s offered to charge us for a normal room rate (as if this was helpful so we weren’t paying the suite rate that we booked, no duh) and comped the second night Also not helpful since the suite was supposed to be complimentary on our wedding night since we have the Marriott a 50 room block full of paying guests

Next, I went to my room to sleep for night #1 after a long rehearsal and dinner I just wanted to go to bed There was dirt all over the beds I brushed off before going to sleep I will be sharing pictures with the hotel tomorrow Thanks for ruining my stay and grossing me out during my wedding

We were very comfortable at this hotel The staff is very nice and everyone was accommodating when we needed anything Special shout out to the kitchen staff – the breakfasts are truly outstanding! We stayed for several days over Christmas 2021, and had a chance to sample several of the dishes

Everything is made of fresh, delicious ingredients The portions are generous There’s a range of options; many are super healthy If you’re wondering, I’m not an employee – I live far away: )

Dahlicia Holmes

This places was disgusting First of all no one seems to ever answer the phone when calling the front desk I checked in on July 2, 2022 for one night

The hallway did not have any a/c and it was extremely warm with a foul odor Upon walking into my room, it had a foul odor as well The bathroom sink had a huge crack in to that leaked onto the under cabinet of sink and onto floor The shower had no grab bars which is a huge hazard especially since the shower door did not close all they way which caused water to gush onto the floor of the shower making your floor towel soaked The couch had stains on it and the carpet looked dirty I paid almost $200/night for my room which I feel like I got robbed bc my room was disgusting This Sheraton must do better especially since they’re charging so much for their nightly rate

Danielle Reily

This hotel was a dump Our arrive check in time was for 3:00PM Our room was not ready until 3:45

When arriving to our room it smelled like someone had smoke a whole pack a cigarettes in there the night before The hotel tried covering it up with some kind of strong spray The pillows the towels everything smelled like smoke The room is outdated Costumer service was horrendous Don’t stay here

I had higher hopes for this hotel It is in a convenient location, and the hotel itself is very unique However, I had some personal items of mine that were thrown away by housekeeping

When I brought it up to the hotel, the just didn’t seem to care This was very frustrating because these items were never recovered to me Additionally, I had a roach in my room during my stay I unfortunately do not plan to stay here again

THEY HAVE BED BUGS!!! My boyfriend surprised me for me birthday with a 2 day getaway at this hotel The room we stayed in was called the Ashton, our stay was from Sunday, May 15th until Sunday May 17th We didn’t even stay for the whole second night, because I was bitten by a BED BUG

I took a shower and laid on the coach that was in our room, I immediately was irritated and scratching my legs My boyfriend checked my body and removed the cushions from the couch and there was a BROWN BED BUG We took pictures of the BED BUG and my bitten up legs, we left the room immediately and took our clothes and another shower We had to sleep in our car for the remainder of our stay I am now breaking out because of these BED BUG bites We stayed in our car from 1 am until 7 am, we spoke with Ann at the front desk, who claimed she never seen a BED BUG BEFORE and told us we wouldn’t be compensated for our second night a least The hotel will not give us any money back!!! She informed us that she would speak with the owner, and we weren’t able to speak with the owner Ann stated that she will contact the exterminator and proceed that way She called us back by noon and stated that the hotel will not drop the pending transaction My boyfriend is losing his 611 dollars for a BED BUG INFESTED HOTEL Do not stay here !! It’s disgusting, they’re not properly cleaning up I have no reason to lie, I’m having anxiety from this No one seems to care at this hotel about the horrific night we had today It’s terrible I will never stay here again

making you feel as though you are out in the country somewhere We chose it as we were stopping in Wilmington overnight on our way up the coast and it was on the Historic Hotels registryWe were in the DuPont suite and WOW It was so lovely, with its own little porch where we sat and enjoyed the mild evening The bathroom was spacious as was our room and the bed was absolutely divine! Sleep quality and comfort was perfectionThe staff we encountered was very welcoming and warm I would absolutely return here if I were ever in the area again

This hotel is GREAT especially for the price point! Didn’t cost an arm and a leg Staff was very friendly and helpful The pool was the best part, open from 9AM to 9PM and was extremely clean

3-5 foot so was perfect for our kids The breakfast Buffett had some good options including: waffle maker, bagels, little danishes, yogurt, cereal, hot eggs, sausage and biscuits, a juice machine etc Our room was extremely clean basic amenities I mean nothing extravagant but clean and everything worked Bathroom was fully stocked with towels which I appreciated Beds were comfortable and the pillows as well, clean white linensThe only slight issues we ran in to was the toilet clogging up and not having a plunger to fix it I suggest putting a cheap plunger in the rooms since it happened multiple times also the vending machines didn’t take credit cards like most places do cause a lot of people like myself don’t carry cash around anymoreOther then then that, I loved my stay Thanks for the excellent customer service 😊We will return for sure!


This Comfort Inn & Suites offers spacious rooms The hotel staff is friendly The room was decent just needs a bit of updating

I’m a stickler for my bathroom areas The bathroom presented clean except the toilet needed to be cleaned much better, I don’t like to see urine drops They also offer a typical continental breakfast, I picked up a frozen Jimmy Dean sandwich and coffee since there is a microwave and refrigerator in the rooms Lastly I really didn’t care for the side road location, but on the plus side it’s not in a noisy area

Tried comfort inn for the first time Worst “3-star hotel” ever Won’t come again

1, Loud noises from next door at 5 am in the morning The rooms are connected from inside through double doors which are not sound proof, so by design you can hear people from next door clearly If you are unfortunate like me who has people next door playing loud rap music at 5 in the morning, your sleep will be ruined2, Horrible smell The room I stayed in smelled like somebody just had a pot partyDefinitely stay away from Comfort Inn in the future Other 3-star hotels like the Hampton Inn are infinitely better

My family and I stayed here the end of July for a family reunion that was in the area The lobby was clean with plenty of space to chill out and/or watch TV All of the elevators were functional

The pool was small, but it kept the children occupied Our room was clean and equipped with a mini fridge and microwave Continental breakfast offered different types of foods that were good Overall, this place was a good find and I would stay again

Nicole Park

We just stayed in a king room at this Holiday Inn Express & Suites over the weekend The hotel was exceptionally clean Our room was spotless and the bed and bedding were fresh and clean

The restrooms on the main level were also fully stocked and sparkling clean In addition, the décor in the lobby, common areas and guest rooms was updated and comfortable To say I was impressed is an understatement I would highly recommend this hotel when visiting the area and will certainly come back should we pass by this way again

Christina Brogaard

Usually hotel is great But yesterday morning at 9:27, I had my DND up, was getting out of the shower when housekeeping tried to walk into our room I’m not sure why you would try to enter an occupied room with the do not disturb up at that hour

It wasn’t check out time and I certainly wasn’t checked out But we do stay here regularly, which is why I would still give 4 stars But I shouldn’t have to worry about people walking in on you while getting ready for the day

Front desk very accommodating Prompt in bringing whatever is needed in the room with room service not offered on a daily basis for first three days You can request servicing of the room 24 hours in advance

Adequate parking Great location for a meeting connecting to a convention center Food is good Handicap accessible rooms don’t all have walk in showers or even a shower with a low lip A tub with bars attached to the wall is not adequate

Chintan Patel

The service at this hotel was very friendly The morning manager who prepares breakfast everyday for the buffet is professional courteous and downright one of the nicest hotel managers around We came in from Brandon for a wedding this past week and we’re treated to the kindest service and a delicious breakfast every morning

Thanks for a wonderful stay we really enjoyed our stay

Sylvia Perry

It was ok good is to much and bad isn’t good enough The staff was fine the bed was comfortable but the shower floor was so dirty I wanted to wear shower shoes I made the mistake of trying to split my hotel bill on two cards and the girl completely messed it up

I ended up with pending charges of well over $300 on one card and nothing on the other (Wow) how she did that I’m not sure We had to call to for the error to be fixed We just wanted a one night getaway from our everyday life This place was not worth $230 dollars I did enjoy our dinner and a movie and just a chance to relax

It was so cool to stay in this historic house! I can’t believe how inexpensive it was compared to hotels in the area The streets surrounding it are walkable and have beautiful trees and buildings The property has a little outside garden area and it adjoins to the nearby park that was beautiful and on the water

This location was more than anything I could have expected The house was like staying at your grandma’s, very homey The staff was so accommodating, they met us for a late check in and made us an early breakfast both days just to fit our schedule

Nora Truscello

We did not stay at the Bed and Breakfast but instead had a wonderful afternoon tea there Upon our reservation we were informed we would be the only guest in the large dining room She only seats one party at a time

The assorted sandwiches and desserts pail only to the selection of excellent teas We had a wonderful time taking our granddaughter to her first official tea The hostage made our granddaughter her own P&J sandwiches with different jams She even provided her with a punch served in her own tea pot The house was built in the 1800’s and the décor and collections was a perfect fit for the house I would gladly attend again

Melissa Castillo

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Terry House in historic New Castle, DE The house was built in 1860 and is furnished and decorated with lovely antiques throughout the property The service and hospitality was stellar

From the moment I spoke to Sue on the phone to book the reservation, I knew we were in good hands Breakfast was tasty and we enjoyed eating it in the dining/ tea room Overall a very pleasant stay

My husband and I booked a weekend Friday evening I was going there to attend a women’s conference The hotel staff outstanding and the restaurant in the hotel the food is absolutely delectable, tasty and seemed freshly prepared which is rare it seems today

This wasn’t our first stay but each stay we leave very welcomed and welcomed back and enjoy the room and quietness and especially the care and attention they give to their guests One of my favorite places to stay (And we only live an hour away yet choose to stay here and make a weekend of it – that alone means yep we enjoy staying at Hilton Christiana Delaware


Great customer service and the room was very comfortableThe food and cocktails were delicious A young lady that works in the restaurant created a drink(can’t remember the name of it) but you must try it! The restaurant staff were my favorite!I enjoyed my stay!

Eugenia Thornton

Convenient, clean, loads of amenities, suitable for weddings and other important events PeeWee Hockey going on when i was there Friendly staff at front desk and at breakfast

Dog friendly but higher than normal charge for dogs, and size is limited to under 75 which they do not tell you until you arrive Convenient dog potty area out back, but not able to reenter building at either of the two doors in that area, must walk around building Breakfast and coffee cost extra, though they are virtually the same as what you get for free at other hotel chains You do not have to bus your own table, though Super happy breakfast room attendants Plenty of uniformed staff around to answer questions and they were happy to do so
