Hotel is located on Route 40, easily reached by exiting Route 1 in Bear, Delaware. I found the room to be clean, with nice bedding, lots of pillows, and soft bath towels. Room was well-lit, quiet and included a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The Wi-Fi was very good; there was a flat screen TV, desk and chair for working, and a small bench for sitting. Room was large, with new carpets and I saw no evidence of disrepair in the room. Hotel has an indoor pool and hot tub (open until 11PM) which I did not use because I stayed here just for an overnight during a long road trip. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
Near the hotel are many chain restaurants and a decent pizza place just a few steps from the front door. The hotel offers free warmed chocolate chip cookies in the evening, which I thought was a nice unexpected treat.
Scrambled eggs, sausages, waffles, bagels, pastries, yogurt, cereals, juices, coffee, were all available at the complimentary breakfast. Breakfast area had plenty of seating.
What I wanted was just a place to "crash" after being on the road all day and facing another all-day drive. This hotel definitely more than met my expectations. less
