Days Inn Dover Downtown

Recent guest reviews

Good for a low-priced hotel. Disappointed that the Wi-Fi didn't work in building 3 (where my room was) and it has evidently been going on for a while. Breakfast was adequate, but OK for being complimentary.

From the pictures the "hotel" looks okay, but" 1. It's a motel, not a hotel, 2. It reminds a person of a place for a one-night stand, 3. The sheets don't even fit on the bed, 4. It smells, 5. Need I say more? Run and hide from this place. When we first walked into the room we immediately turned around and went back to the office and turned in our key. We then proceeded to drive 2 hrs. home because there were no hotel rooms available in the city because of an event. Do yourself a favor, don't do it.

I travel frequently on business and the Friday afternoon clerk was the rudest I ever encountered. Not the least bit friendly and exuded negative energy. Acted as if I was bothering her by trying to check in one hour early despite the room being ready and no one else around. The night clerk did not input my wake up call and I was late and harried for my business meeting.

About as expected for a 2 star property. What more can I say. This review is done.

Great location. Breakfast could be a lot better. Beds are really comfy.

I booked last minute as I was Passing through. But never again at this place

The front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. The free breakfast was surprisingly good and had plenty of options. The room was fine for what we needed - a place to sleep and shower, not much time spent in the room. The room was clean, bathroom was clean. Only complaint is not enough towels.

It was ok... The TV didn't work right.. The shower was cold.. basically it's a place to sleep that's close to the casino but I wouldn't want to stay over 2 days at the max. I guess you get what you pay for

Room wasnt ready.on time took hours.went to dinner came back still not ready, pretty clean, quiet.

The room was not terrible but could have been cleaner and by that I mean there was a used item left from a previous tenant.

When we arrived; we were told we were in a non smoking room and the room smelled of smoke. We were moved to another room where there were bugs in the bed. The last room we were moved to still stunk, so we didn't have a choice but to stay. Bought lysol to spray beds. The room was very out of date; refrigerator rusted and the bathroom door didn't shut all the way. One of the worst stays in a hotel I ever had!

I have to say the free continental breakfast is a welcome surprise worth staying in the hotel for an overnight accommodation.

This hotel was just what I was looking for. It was a clean room, convenient location, and great price.

We rented three rooms and all three had problems. Rooms were clean enough. But one room's wall light came flying off the wall. Another room had no HBO or wireless, although they advertised both as free. And when we called to inform the office, they did nothing. The third room was never cleaned during the day. When we arrived in the evening, we asked for the room to be cleaned. They merely threw the bedspread over the bed.without making the bed underneath. There are plenty of other hotels along that strip, some perhaps better than this for the price.

If you're looking for a cheap, clean hotel, it's a good value. The hotel is less than a mile from downtown and Dover Downs. The owner halfway through the process of renovating the hotel. The room I stayed in had the light fall down while we were out. They moved us over to the next room, which had the shower curtain rod partially falling out of the wall. We were obviously staying in the pre-renovated wing. There was breakfast, the rooms were clean, and the price was right. You may have to deal with a few growing pains while the renovations were ongoing, but the staff was great and accomodating to the problems in the motel.

good!! and clean !!! nice breakfast!! very good location.

very nice hotel, good breakfast, clean and good location.

Tried to stay close to the track and it was perfect .. easy in and easy out.

The hotel staff was pleasant. The room was dirty, blood stain on wall in bathroom. Very noisy, poor parking. Will NEVER go back again

When we arrived 6pm, we were given a room that had not yet been cleaned. The bed was unmade and there were wet towels everywhere. The front desk quickly put us into another room which rectified the situation. It set us back 20 minutes or so, but not the end of the world. The room was very outdated and the bottom of the bathroom door had been cut at an extreme angle. It was something I should have taken a picture of. I got the feeling that the room was made of bits and pieces from a motel that was torn down as the trim and doors were in poor condition and appeared to be recycled. In the shower, the cleaning staff had not removed the used soap from the previous guest, so there was a less than clean feel from the stay there. The continental breakfast was more or less that you would expect from a 2 star motel. It was not good or bad, but par for what is expected.
