Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carol01 Convenient Location on Way to Auto Train
We give high marks to the Holiday Inn Express locations wherever we stay, but this one in Newark,DE was particularly convenient this trip. We enjoyed the clean pool before dinner and loved the extra large lobby area and breakfast room. The next morning, We were able to have a relaxing breakfast, including their famous cinammon buns, drive to Lorton, VA, arrive for a quick lunch, and still have plenty of time before the train departed.
The staff recommended Klondike Kate's for dinner. the food was good, but we were by far the oldest ones there. Newark is a college town and Kate's is definitely a college hangout.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Uselessfield Nice hotel
We needed a place to stay for a few days for my fathers funeral. HIExpress was close by so we elected to stay there. Overall this was an excellent hotel and the staff was extremely pleasant. Being recognized as a military veteran at check in the individual thanked me for my service and provided a few amenities as a thank you. The location is in a bit of an off area being at the 273 flyway which can be confusing but still this was a very good facility. Breakfast was plentiful, hot items were hot and cold were cold. I will stay here again when I visit my family in the Newark/Bear/Elkton area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by casswriter Best HI-X?
Having logged many nights at Holiday Inn Express locations nationwide (and enjoying all of them), I think the Newark HI-X is at the top of the list: a beautiful, modern facility; very quiet and comfortable rooms; and the nicest and roomiest HI-X breakfast room I've ever been in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by evie6762 Enjoyable stay
As Director of Sales at Maximum Tours we were on a Familiarization Tour of Delaware at the end of June and had the pleasure of staying at Holiday Inn. The lobby and breakfast area were clean and the food was good. The meeting space would be able to accommodate a bus group.
The beds were comfortable. Based on availability we were given a handicapped wheelchair accessible room. Although we didn't need it I was truly impressed at the ease that a roll-in shower would provide. We went on site inspection of the rest of the hotel and really liked what we saw. The jacuzzi in the suite was really nice. The indoor pool was large and inviting.
Donielle in Sales was very pleasant.
I look forward to bringing groups to the hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Marc68 Room Not ready When I Arrived
Check in is listed as 3:00. I arrived at 4:00 and my room was not ready until 4:30. Due to being rushed, the maid missed cleaning behind the chair in the room. There appeared to be a rubber band or similar object on the floor. The room was adequate. I can't comment on the variety of breakfast choices as I did not stay for breakfast. I don't understand why the charge on my credit card is $10 more than the bill I received. I can't say that this hotel was any better than other places I have stayed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Katsoleen New Hotel, Outstanding Breakfast
We had a wedding to attend on a Monday in Newark. We received great service and the room had a comfortable bed and pillows. I normally don't sleep well away from home but had no problem here. The pool and hot tub area were spotless. The Holiday Inn Express served the best continental breakfast I have ever had.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Greg70 Mostly Good.
Checked in for four nights for project in town. Went home on the weekend, came back for four more nights. Overall pretty good. Property and rooms fairly clean, breakfast typical for HIE.
You get a bottle of water for being Platinum. That's it, no wheel to spin or bag of munchies (like you get often times).
Just like most HIE's I stay at, I didn't get upgraded. I think in two years and probably 200+/- nights, I've been upgraded twice at HIE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patricia129 Excellent Experience
This was the best hotel stay my husband and I have had in a long time. The room was immaculately clean, well equipped and very quiet. The hotel staff was pleasant, efficient and quite helpful. We enjoyed the variety of breakfast foods each morning and appreciated the spacious dining room with its comfortable chairs. It made for a relaxing start to each morning. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family, and we will stay here on our next visit to the area. A very good value.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JW99 Nice, clean hotel
Overall, a very nice and clean hotel. Comfortable beds, good breakfast buffet, and little to no noise heard throughout the night. Staff was very friendly overall. Especially the breakfast staff. Great location right off I-95, but also close enough to downtown Newark to get around easily.
The only downsides I would say were:
-Shower doors that don't close all the way....nor are they hung well. I had to rehang a shower door while taking a shower. Not worth making a big deal over, but still a bit of an annoyance.
-Lack of typical "Platinum Member" experience. Only difference by being a platinum member was a free bottle of water. I'm not going to complain about free anything, but usually there are other benefits. Again, nothing to make a big deal over.
Overall: I would definitely stay here again. A couple minor adjustments and this would be a true 5 star Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DRU2C Our favourite during our recent road trip
We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel during our recent road trip; it was ideally located for museums in Wilmington as well exploring parts of Delaware. The staff were extremely friendly, we appreciated the free hot breakfast and use of guest laundry. As a bonus, rather than a shower over a bath, it had a large walk in shower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa17 All Around Great!
I travel for my job and have stayed at many hotels over the past year. I've been staying at this one for 4 weeks now. Coming back each week, after the first one, is almost like coming home. This hotel is very close to the top of my list for the best. It is quiet, comfortable and the staff is exceptional, especially the ladies who keep breakfast going each morning. They are always smiling, cheerful and happy to help with whatever might be needed or wanted. The only thing that was missing from here, that I've grown accustomed to at other hotels, is a restaurant. But there are plenty of places to find just about anything under the sun within a 5-10 drive. I will stay here every time I'm in town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pompoms Another Good Place To Stary
My husband and I like Holiday Inn Expresses, as they are clean comfortable and easy to find right off main highways when we travel. We are priority members and call to make a reservation even when on the road, a service person on the phone will help us find the next available HIE near where we have to be, so that not to go out of our way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Murchad A very nice hotel - gotta love the breakfast area...
This property is located just off the highway, about 1 minute from Rt. 95 so it is very convenient. The room we had was clean, spacious, comfortable and worth the money. The lobby was clean and well sized but the breakfast/dining area one of the largest ones we have seen. It made a nice impression. This hotel isn't one we would normally visit. It is close to our home - too close for a pleasure visit but business brought us there overnight and we were
quite pleased. Can't ask or say much more than that!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Would stay here again.
This location is very clean & the room's are very quiet & the staff were helpfull & friendly. The only thing is the bed was a little high for someone who has short leg's & shall I say "a low centere of gravity" & the price was a little high, but that's the differance of having an iside pool, workout room, in room wi-fi, a breakfast beyond the standard "continental" style other places offer #if at all# & other small perk's that this location offer's. All in all, I would not hesitate to stay here again if ever in the area again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fred15 Great service and breakfast
I was a late arrival without a reservation, got the last room, and all was well. I was able to have a late cup of decaf and was recognized as a Priority Club member. The breakfast selection was good, and I was able to choose among items still reasonably consistent with my diet in combination with portion control. I had scrambled eggs, sausage, whole wheat muffin, raisin bran with 2% milk and yogurt. I had a difficult time passing on my favorite cinnamon roll.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by arubagirl2006 So glad I found you again
2 years ago my sister and I stayed at this Holiday Inn. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub, and breakfast in the morning. But, we forgot which Holiday Inn (HI) we stayed at the next few times we were traveling. We were disappointed with the others
Finally, we were looking at some pictures and recognized the right hotel. The pool is small, but indoors so we are able to swim all year. There is a hot tub nearby. And...it opens at 5am! We can swim before we hit the road.
The only thing I would like to see would be some more choices at breakfast, but there is plenty of food and hot coffee.
