Show More / Less

Our Bear hotel is near the University of Delaware and Wilmington University, which makes us a favorite for guests visiting students, faculty or staff. Brandywine Valley area hotels are well-known for offering a great location that's close to everything. Whether you're here to visit family in New Castle or are looking for Newark hotels with a great reputation, count on us for a great stay.

We offer a convenient location to area businesses, restaurants and tax-free shopping. Easy on and off major highways make our Bear hotel a favorite. With an indoor heated pool and spa and family luxury suites available, relaxation and comfort is key here.

Many guests are in town to go to the Firefly Festival, Lums Pond State Park or to explore historic Old New Castle. The Delaware City, DE area is a popular region for history buffs, families and couples looking for a romantic escape. The local Christiana Mall is a great shopping experience full of tax-free deals and is also near the sporting complexes. Blue Diamond Motor Cross Sports Complex is three miles away and the Kirkwood Soccer Club is 4.50 miles away. The Christiana Hospital is just five miles away as well. From shopping to sports and everything in between, our Bear hotel has you covered.

We regularly welcome business travelers in town with Delaware City Refinery, the Armed Forces Reserve Station, Bank of America and Astrazeneca. Our Bear hotel is staffed with friendly and family-oriented staff who are always happy to assist guests. Whether you're here for business or pleasure, we'll take great care of you.

Reserve your spacious room at Best Western Plus Newark/Christiana Inn, where guests are always our top priority! Enjoy your stay.
