On 1st of December it was quiet, quaint and great treatment upon arrival. Modern rooms and clean. I will be back if I travel in the future to Dagsboro business meetings . The WiFi was stubborn, but on 3rd try it connected. Quiet night before presentation in front of 26 people.

My dog had better accommodations and treatment. Received call (late at night) from Alicia at front desk about my dog being left in a crate, in the car. She said the situation was "unethical" and advised me to move my dog. This was not a Pet Friendly place, so where did she expect me to put my dog and why... More

Good Afternoon Keely H. During your stay multiple guest advised the hotel of a dog which was locked in a vehicle in our parking lot. Numerous guest' threatened to call the authorities, because they viewed a dog being locked in a vehicle overnight with the windows completely closed as inhumane. On that note our front desk clerk decided to contact... More

We stayed recently during their off-season and were very impressed. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The continental breakfast buffet was quite nice, and managed well by Miss Felicia, who we met while having coffee. All the staff came across as being genuinely interested in the guests' satisfaction. Free Wi-Fi worked properly, the room was comfortable and had all the amenities... More

This is a very good Holiday Inn Express in a great location and it has a great staff. It does get busy so the breakfast buffet gets a little crowded but it is the shore after all. I stayed here twice this summer and was very pleased.

This hotel advertises it it is 1 block from the beach--it's not as simple as that especially with children. It's one long block half of which you walk in the street in the "biking" lane and the other on a side street. It's is also a 15 minute walk from town. That could have been tolerated though and certainly would... More

We have stayed at this property before. The rooms are typical HIE. The hotel is close to the beach. The room was ok but the bathroom was not clean. They have these things on the bottom of the bathtub (I guess so you don't slip?) but there is mold/mildew - dirt all around the edge. I called to complain and... More

The price is really high for one night. But the front desk staff is one of the most helpful and friendliest. Especially Miriam. She was able to help us get a rare last minute room and allowed us to check in early. The pool is nice and wasn't busy until late afternoon. Lots of choices for breakfast. All in all... More

Holiday Inn was fantastic! The manager Destinee was amazing! She was so friendly and accommodating! It was a spur of the moment trip and she found us a room. She even got us into the room right away so that we could get settled since we drove through the night! I would definitely go back because of her!!
