Clean & comfortable

Stopped here on our way to ocean city, md. Nothing fancy about this place but in the end if it's clean, it's a winner in my book. We got the king size room with jacuzzi. Those can't be easy to clean but they did a great job. Decent breakfast, even hot eggs & sausage. If it would have had an elevator it would have gotten a higher score. Fortunately we didn't have much for luggage.

Needs a bit of maintenance

The room hadn't been cleaned particularly well and the halls smelled of cigarette smoke. The location is good and the room comfortable enough and well equipped.

Even one night was too much to take

Needed an affordable place to stay in Dover for just one night. My expectations were not high. Just a non smoking room to unwind and get some sleep. Thought I could put up with anything for one night. ... Staff was pleasant. Fitness room was a joke. Continental breakfast was below average, but tolerable, if healthy eating is not a priority. Room was quiet and clean. Ventilation system was horrible! My non-smoking room was full of smoke every time someone somewhere lit up. Odor was so strong it repeatedly woke us up! Between the smoke and the deodorizors used by housekeeping, ended up with migraine and a very disappointing stay. By the way, one of the wash cloths in the bathroom was filthy. Had been used, then re folded and put back with the clean towels. It was even still damp from previous use. If you must be close to Dover AFB, and you are a smoker, and you get a really good deal, try this motel.

Moderate prices, nice staff

The hotel was full and the front desk was hopping, but staff still took the time to be courteous and helpful at check in. Check out was quick and easy. Housekeeping staff were also nice.

No cleanliness or Eagerness to Help

On checking in on june 26th 14, gsa was not warm just did the check-in process and didnt even give directions of where room was at or explain the amenities. . That evening returning to the hotel tk find a blackbug under the stained mattress brought it to Samantha she was lacks in her empathy didnt help further assust me there where no other rooms. Ask for supervisor number to get my refund unwilling to help said: I know what she would say so am not going to call her its not a emergency. As providing service u go abive & beyond fir yoyr guest she must have not got the memo. "

Bad service

Samanth was very rude as a gsa- guest service agent after i brought a dissatisfaction i had with the room. She wasnt willing to assist or call a manager no sincere sympathy at all for what i was experiencing, not willing to refund the money even after being paid by the third party company i used to make the reservation.
