We arrived at the Holiday Inn Express in Wilmington-Newark, DE. The hotel was nice as was the room, until I used the bathroom. I glanced into the shower and noticed a long blonde hair on the shower floor. Recognizing that even the best of housekeepers could miss one hair I was ready to over look it. Just then, I noticed...

It was our second time staying at this hotel. I have to admit it wasn't our first choice, but hotels near the festival grounds book fast and are not cheap. It was an almost 40 min ride back and forth each day, but we were at peace knowing we had a great stay last year! We had a super late...

Stayed overnight en route to New York. Situated close to the highway it's surprisingly serene. The hotel is extremely well kept. The beds are very comfortable. I was assigned a room which had a hot tub, kitchenette and lounge. Breakfast standard, but the dining area is superb. Would I stay here again .... Yes!

Stopped here for night on the way to Virginia Beach. This Holiday Inn is right off 95. The room was very spacious and the breakfast was very good. Newark is home to University of Delaware so fun to go into town for dinner.
