    Terrible stay during Covid

    This hotel has really gone downhill during Covid. The cleanliness of the room is very questionable as I found a plastic bag in the closet floor, the coffee pot in the room had water in it, the tub was discolored, and you have to hold the handle down until the water has completely dissipated to flush the toilet. Even the hallways have a musty, damp feeling to them despite the weather being the high 70's that week! Not to mention, you don't receive any of the perks of staying at a doubletree, no cookies upon arrival, no shuttle service, the hotel restaurant is closed.

    The hotel was dirty the pool was broken and the front desk gave someone a key to my room. That person walked in while my kid was coming out of the bathroom.

    Washcloth left in my room.

    There was a washcloth left in my room. That tells me the room wasn’t cleaned like guaranteed. During this unprecedented time of Covid-19, that should not happen. Very disappointed.

    The hotel is right downtown. It’s an older hotel that has been refurbished. I like those old school hotels. It was clean, no complaints at all. Brian checked us in at the front desk, and he is the nicest guy I have ever dealt with. The staff members at that hotel are definitely working to ensure you have an enjoyable stay. I would go back there again.

    Family Visit to DE

    With family in the area, I have been staying at this hotel for about 5 years. The service has always been great, rooms nice and spacious. Obviously with COVID-19, many services have changed or been stopped. I definitely miss the restaurant and bar service but I do understand. With the limited options, they definitely need to focus more on the cleanliness of the rooms. I can't wait for this property to return to full service.

    The staff were truly delightful. The room needs renovation— the bathroom especially. The bathtub metal faucet fell of mid shower and almost broke my toe and started shooting water everywhere and that prevented me from taking an overhead shower. I had to end up taking a “bird bath” in the last day of my stay. Additionally, the toilet just kept “running”.
