This is one of those buildings that you drive by every day, and don't pay much attention to. Occasionally you may need to stop in, but few do. Unless you're a commuter. Then you quickly realize it's whole existence is based on Rule #1 -...More

There is nothing special about the Wilmington train station. There is poor food available and the parking runs out fairly early in the morning. Still, I am glad that the station is there!

I arrived & left from the Amtrak Station in Wilmington DE. It is small but quaint. Very clean restroom and a small convenience store for misc. items. The staff was extremely nice when I asked a few questions. Much easier to access that Philadelphia station.

I recently traveled through the Wilmington train station and enjoyed the interesting architecture of the building. It would be worth a look if you are in the area and enjoy historic sites. However, it's a pretty standard train station otherwise.

This train station is very easy to navigate compared to many others we've traveled. The station is clean, and the staff is helpful.

Have used the car rentals located in the station numerous times. Station offers your basic services and is adequate for the town the size of Wilmington. Very poor food options.

The train station is adequate and serves its purpose but is nothing like the ones in larger cities, so don't expect a lot. It's also not in a good area of town so be careful when traveling at night.

There is a hotel about 4 blocks further into town. Other hotels are along the waterfront, then down Rt 13 towards the airport. For best pricing use the search feature of Tripadvisor.
