Recent guest reviews

Wifi did not work. Bathroom was tiny. Otherwise OK.

Everything was ok I have no complaints about the room or the staff

nice place to stay with my four legs kids. it's a comfortable place and many nearby area for reataurant.

All was very good EXCEPT the extraordinarily irritating a/c fan which cycled on and off all night long. There was no way to have the fan run continuously (that we could find). Every time the fan cycled from very loud to silence, and back, everyone in the room woke up. Also, road noise from outside was very loud at times.

We only needed a place to sleep for the nice. Well kept, nice hotel. We did find some hairs in the towels, but overall was a good stay

Had to move rooms because kid ran around upstairs and I could not get any rest. 2nd room was ok. Friendly staff.

Got there said I had to pay for my room again when I already paid a week in advanced, asked for some extra pillows and were told no we don't allow customers to have extra.

The customer service is terrible. Not one smile in the whole place. The wifi sucks!!! It shows up like its connected but wouldn't allow me to actually surf the web, watch Netflix or play the ps4. Using my own service, it worked fine so it wasn't the location at all. The manager is rude and doesn't seem to be interested in providing great service. Haven't stayed there in so long and I definitely remember why. Thought they had new workers but that doesn't matter if the management doesn't improve. Won't be staying here again....only as an absolute last resort and I think I'd rather sleep in a car than to subject myself to terrible service.

The staff was very helpful. We were amazed on how clean the room was. The Internet didn't work

We had a great stay in the hotel located almost next to the Raceway. The staff is friendly and curteous. the Rooms are nice and clean, just some minor noise from the main road next to the property.

The staff was friendly, location was in Dover which has alot of restaurants. We went to a Home Depot very close by, as well as a Food Lion Supermarket. We were just passing through and liked the King bed.

The front desk staff was very accommodating and friendly. The hotel was fine, no real frills. Very close to The casino. The room above us sounded like they were moving furniture all night, but not hotels fault.

Room was clean. Staff was nice. But the a/c unit did not get cold nor blow well on high it was hot n uncomfortable all night. Told staff in the am but they didn't seem interested. Breakfast could use sausage, bacon to eat with the waffles. There is only 2 tables to eat. We will not return.

The hotel was very clean and comfortable. Check in was quick and easy and staff helpful. Great location

The owner is very unfriendly & the channel selection is awful.

Extremely upset I couldn't watch my show on VH1. 3 Spanish channels....really??? Tv selection sucks

The room was clean, large, and very comfortable. I had booked online and was placed in a smoking room- the girl at the front desk was more than happy to switch us to a non-smoking room. We only stayed one night. I would go back here to stay again as my fiancée and I will be traveling to Deleware a lot to plan for our future move there.

Very nice staff, room very clean. Sits next to highway but was very quiet, Good place to stay.

This hotel had a great location close to everything, but everything in the room was very outdated. The beds were very old and springy, not comfortable at all, the air conditioning leaked water, the shower head needs to be updated, water pressure not so great and the towels were very rough. I requested a handicap accessable room, did not seem to be an option. Overall stay was not too bad.

I had a work class in dover and needed a place to stay for the night, thinking dover is busy central place, i figured this would be a DECENT room. 1) The hotel and room smelled like cat litter box, the whole place reeked awful. 2) The room was very outdated the wood and trim and furniture was worn and chipped. 3) The bed was large but horrible on my back and body and the bedding was from 1980 and smelled gross the sheets looked clean but WHO KNOWS! 4) the bathroom was decent at best nothing great. 5) the staff is dry not very cheery or helpful. 6) the continental breakfast was cheap and sparse. 7) wifi did not work in the "LARGE WORK AREA" room that ordered so i had no internet. I was miserable and wanted to sleep in my car instead. I am usually very considerate and grateful for hotels i stay in for the rooms and the employees but this is my worst experience ever. DO NOT stay here.
