Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Wilmington-Newark
Ranked #6 of 24 Hotels in Newark
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 March 2012

What an ideal place to stay! Very convenient to I-95 affording easy access to the Univ of DE campus, Wilmington, Philadelphia. From Check-In to Check-out the staff is friendly, helpful and pleasant. In addition, this must be the cleanest and most comfortable hotel I've stayed in. The rooms, lobby and breakfast area are outstanding. This hotel provides a great place to meet with business clients in very pleasant surroundings.

This Holiday Inn Express is incredibly clean and well maintained. It's convenient to so much in the region, being right by I-95; with easy access to Wilmington, Philly, etc. The hotel lobby, lounge, halls, and elevators are all spotless and are very appealing and functional. The free breakfast is more than adequate, with hot and cold foods as choices. The room was large (King, Non-smoking) and very comfortable, well lit, and the cleanest I've seen in even the highest level of hotels. There's a good reason this is the number one hotel in the area. Enjoy your travels!

Fe 8,2111 I stayed here for 2 nights and found this place to have the best value compared to 2 other near by hotels that I stayed in. It was designed in a simple fashion and had a comfortable room. I felt safe because all parking was well lit and close to the main lobby. You can access DelawarePpark in 6 minuets without entering I 95. The comp breakfast was typical and limited. Joe G

Don't let the 3 stars fool you ....they have great rooms, great service and good location. I stay at 40 nites in Holiday Inns per year and this is my favorite! Have family nearby but we stay here every time. Clean upscale lobby, clean indoor pool, clean rooms, clean breakfast area. Very good breakfast... biscuits are flaky and not dried out, good selection of fruit, cereal and eggs. Parking is well lit, shopping mall 5 minutes away...and did I say how clean it is. One of the few places my wife feels at home. Kids love the pool and hot tub. We get the suite with kitchen area. Front desk staff always ready to help...great weekend rates...stay here you will be glad you did

Room Tip: try for a room away from I-95

Probably be my shortest review to date as there's not much to say about this location except that it's top notch all the way. I've stayed in 16 different HI Expresses over the last 2 years and this ranks as the best one so far. The breakfast menu is typical of others, but look away from your plate and you'd never know you're in an HI Express. The breakfast area is impressive with huge ceilings and tables spaced out quite nicely. When they designed this one, they definitely went above and beyond. I had a huge suite room during my two weeks here. The mini-refrigerator really isn't mini....you can even put a few items in the freezer as it's bigger than most. The beds are awesome, the rooms are very quiet and the internet is fast. For business or pleasure, you really can't go wrong here. The only thing keeping this from getting a 100 instead of a 99, would be a few more television channels. Nothing major though. If I'm ever working in this area again I know where I'll be staying.
