Best Kept Secret
WOW is all I can say about The Henson Hotel ! They definitely know how to give their guest the WOW FACTOR in ALL Areas of your stay!! It was such a pleasure meeting these smart young future entrepreneurs , the hospitality was amazing from being to end !! The Henson is what we would call a Best Keep Secret who would ever thought that staying on a college campus would be so quiet and serine , the window view was simply great the location was in a nice little but large secluded area with plenty of space but yet so warm and inviting , Oh did I mention the super urber clean rooms let me just say I have stayed at places that cost twice this amount and they need to come take a look at The Henson to see how its supposed to be done OK !! They truly take great pride in what they do and you can tell as soon as you walk through the door from the beautiful clean lobby to the ride in the elevator , It was so nice and relaxing we stayed an extra night !! I would like to take time out to say thank you all for a great stay and a special shout out to Miss. Ciera the concierge who I know from our one on one brief conversation has a bright future in this Hospitality field. But to All we say JOB WELL DONE and see you again because we will be back next year Lord Willing !! Keep up the excellent work TEAM HENSON!!

Peace on Campus
Finding the hotel was a bit of a challenge- sign designating the hotel would be helpful. The staff were very friendly, helpful and responsive to questions. The mattresses could be a bit better and our bed was short sheeted at the foot. Wish the pillows did not have a hard security tag on them, that was a bit in comfortable. Our room finishing were a bit dusty but the room felt clean overall. The breakfast selections were plentiful but items with lower sugar content would be helpful. The setting was peaceful and town quiet. Fairly quick ride back up to Salisbury University. I would stay here again.
