    Clean, quiet, great location

    Just a one-night stay to participate in an organized bike ride. The location was excellent for this event (Bethany Beach area). The hotel was clean and the staff courteous and thorough. The place was pretty busy with a little league event also going on. The room was dark and quiet, and the shower nice. Complimentary breakfast was served in accordance with COVID rules, consisting of a breakfast sandwich, muffin and coffee.

    Glad to be back again

    It’s been awhile since we stayed at this property. Upon arrival we realized how much we always enjoyed staying here. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable, the location is within walking distance to our favorite restaurants, the bay and the ocean. Breakfast in the covid era was wonderful also. You had your choice of what you wanted and they bagged it for you. We opted for the breakfast sandwich with egg, cheese and sausage and a blueberry muffin. Very satisfying. The front desk also has anything else you might need. Cups, napkins, plates forks, knives, spoons etc....the bathrooms had a great hairdryer, makeup wipes,soap and in the shower there were huge bottles of shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in pump bottles. Thanks holiday inn for making our weekend getaway special in these crazy covid times.

  • 4.0.Fair

    They advertised a free buffet breakfast, but when I went down, there was nothing. There was a woman sitting in the lounge and I asked about the breakfast and she brought me out a bag with some breakfast items in it. Also it was Christmas Day, not many guests. So they had us all consolidated in one area of the hotel. The guests above me and next to me were very loud and I was looking to get some quiet so I could sleep!

  • 2.0.Poor

    Ants... but no masks?

    Hotel seemed to forget covid exists. They had large signs limiting people in elevators and staying masks required in all public areas. Despite this there was a large group of people hanging out maskless directly in front of the reception desk and not a word said by the people working. Thought we were trying to make travel safe? The next day we had ants all over our room and ended up checking out a night earlier. The woman at the desk was lovely and helped make sure we received a defund for the last night. Overall not the best hotel experience.
