Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jonny W Great facilities and comfortable to stay
We had only planned to stay in this hotel 3 days, but added 2 more as we were comfortable. The facilities in the rooms include a large fridge/freezer, microwave and hobs, all of which were of use.
The welcoming microwaveable popcorn was a nice touch.
The swimming pool was a surprise star, a great setting to relax as well as big enough to swim across.
Another great feature is the close proximity of the large Acme store and easy access to the highway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LAFAM 2 BR Suite Perfect for family of 5 with teens
The 2 bedroom suite with 2 doubles/1 king was a rare find and perfect for a family of 5 with teens. The bedrooms are actual separate rooms that close off with doors - very important with family members that go to sleep at different times (like the nocturnal teen)! With the Q sofabed in the living room, we were able to put each kid in his/her own bed - and whose kids don't sleep better (and longer) when they're in their own beds? The Q sofabed was at end of life, with broken springs and saggy mattress, but our 14 year old slept fine on it. Breakfast was not as good as we've had at Embassy Suites (where you get eggs cooked to order), but it was fine. There was an automatic waffle iron, scrambled eggs, and paper thin bacon strips (so thin I'm not even sure it was real bacon). The rest was cereal, oatmeal, muffins/pastries, toast, and fruit. At this price point, booked through Staybridge website, this room was a fantastic find and incredible value!

I commented one morning about a pothole that had developed at the entrance to the hotel. When I returned to the hotel that evening, it had been filled in and fixed! Amazing response!

What caught my senses first as we entered the building was the pleasant scent in the lobby and Great Room area. The staff was courteous, kind, knowledgeable, and greeted me as an IHG member. Everything was superior from the cleanliness of the suite to the wonderful breakfast buffet and the complimentary Thursday dinner and the housekeeping staff. Everyone was friendly and courteous. We LOVED our experience at the Staybridge Suites in Newark, Delaware.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LLPJuly2014 Staff Service with a Smile
I admit it. I'm a two-towel person. Unfortunately, I have used one of my towels for a yoga class I've attended a couple times a week that makes the towel unfit for the next day's use. Dan, the evening front desk person has never failed to provide me with an extra clean towel when I've asked. In fact, one evening he didn't have one readily available and said he would deliver it to my room. I honestly figured I'd have to limit myself to one towel the next morning. Not at all. Less than 15 minutes after I'd gotten to my room, Dan knocked on the door and delivered a clean towel, fresh and warm from the dryer. It was like getting a security blanket! What a nice service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by edev Wonderful hotel value in the Newark/Wilmington area
This hotel is new, clean, quiet and friendly. The staff were helpful at all turns including guaranteeing silence in the hotel after 10 pm. The kitchenette in the sleeping room is excellent with a full refrigerator and a two-burner electric stove. The bed and the fold-out sofa both were comfortable. We saw families and groups using the gas grilles near the pool for parties and events - they looked really happy with the setup. The hotel is located across the street from a modern supermarket and there are many restaurants within a few minutes driving distance. There is easy access to the University of Delaware. I gladly would use this hotel again in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Choosy senior Comfortable stay
Our studio queen room was surprisingly large. It was neat and clean, overlooking the pool. The a/c could have functioned better, but with our short stay, it was a minor issue. Overall, a pleasant visit.
