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.

Overnight getaway

Our reason for staying at the hotel was that we planned a last minute beach trip, and this hotel in Dover, DE was the closest hotel to the beach that wasn't booked solid. It was a little less than an hour away from Rehoboth Beach, DE which suited us just fine. The exterior of the hotel isn't the most inviting, but the room was perfectly clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff were friendly. The continental breakfast was excellent. As a bonus of being in Dover, we went to Dover Downs Casino in the evening (we are cheap, and only played penny slot machines fyi), but it was fun. Note that the hotel is right off of the highway (DE route 1) which was a plus for us, but may not be for you depending on your situation.

Good Price

This is a good value for a room in this area. Conveniently located if you are visiting someone at Dover AFB or if you are looking to go to Dover Downs Casino/Racetrack without paying Dover Downs weekend prices.

Good for Firefly

The hotel is extremely basic, but you get what you'd expect. The staff was friendly and helpful. The prices were jacked up for Firefly festival but rightfully so. I'd recommend it for the festival or any major event at Dover Downs, but that's about the only reason to ever go to the city (and that's not this hotel's fault).

Nice surprise

Considering the price I was expecting the worse. I was totally wrong. Nice room, plenty of food spots within 5 mins and NO NOISE.
