Stayed in town to run a race starting just down the street at Dover Downs. Rooms were clean, quiet, & close to the race start & a large number of restaurant choices. Staff was friendly & allowed me to have a late check-out so that I could return & shower after the marathon. Thank you for a great ...
We arrived early from Jersey. We stopped in at the desk to let them know we were here in DE because we had appointments and knew we wouldn't be back in the area until later. They would not check us in, if they did they would charge us an early check-in fee. So we had to come all the way back to check ...
Confortable hotel. Breakfast in the morning and a nice hot pool. Comfortable and clean beds. Shower was horrible. The bathroom floor would fill with water every time we showered. Overall, decent hotel to stay at. Better than what I expected.
The room had a bit of an odor, almost musty, but not terrible. The beds were very soft, so if you like soft beds great, but not us. Breakfast was the typical quality inn breakfast with eggs, sausage, waffles, etc. Pool area was very nice with a nice hot tub. Location was a good 40 minutes from anything ...
Rooms were very clean and nice. The room heat and ac was sensor controlled and the room was cold and the unit seemed to blow cool air even though we had turned the thermostat to 75 . It was tolerable with the nice bedding. Bed was very comfortable but the pillows were terrible. Great breakfast and ...
We stayed here for a night as we were passing through town. The hotel is right on the beach and really cute. I'm not a fan of cookie cutter style resorts so this really appealed to me. The room was exceptionally clean and decorated very nicely. It was appointed with a nice size mini fridge, a 2 person table and a microwave. The windows had very nice mini blinds that were in between the glass panes. The balcony was really nice also. We would've used it if we had been there a little longer. We stayed in October but the beach looked beautiful. We actually liked it so much that we are considering going back this summer for a weekend.
Room was clean and eco-friendly. Pool was under maintenance. Breakfast was,good.

We got there late and got a smoking room...... Breakfast was your standard hotel continental breakfast.
A love for history is just one of the many reasons that travelers are drawn to Dover. It's been the capital of Delaware since 1777, and it was established during the American War of Independence. This quaint town is nestled within a rapidly growing commercial region of the state. Aside from historic sites, there are several activities available nearby that visitors can enjoy year-round. The primary access highway to the town is US Route 13, known locally as the DuPont Highway.
There are plenty of sites and destinations located within walking distance of downtown Dover and Dover Downs. Travelers who need public transportation to get around the city can use the Dart bus transit system. The Dart system allows bus riders to access nearly every part of the city, including both sides of US Route 13. Airports located in the area include the Chandelle Estates Airport (0N4), Dover Air Force Base and Delaware Airpark.
Dover Downs, Dover International Speedway, Delaware State University, the Dover Mall and the North Dover Shopping Center are all located in close proximity, off US Route 13 on the northern part of town. The Korean War Veterans Memorial Highway runs parallel to US Route 13 and allows travelers to access Dover Air Force Base.
Visitors who love sightseeing will enjoy taking a walk to see the historic architecture located on State Street. Near the intersection with Loockerman Street, the road is composed of cobblestones, and visitors can see the historic Supreme Court building. Between Governors Avenue and Division Street, there are a series of historic Victorian-style houses that were constructed between the late 1800s and early 1900s.
The Old State House Museum building was originally constructed in 1791. The structure was eventually converted into a museum after legislative staff moved to a more modern building in 1933. The Biggs Museum of American Art provides free entry to view a personal collection of American art. The Schwartz Center for the Arts is the place to go to enjoy the symphony, local theater and historic architecture. There are more than 10 museums in the area that are nationally recognized.
The largest sporting events held in Dover are NASCAR events. The events at the Dover International Speedway draw around 150,000 racing fans to the town of 36,000 during June and September of every year. Dover Downs hosts the mile-long NASCAR track and several attractions, including a thoroughbred racetrack, casino, and several restaurants and hotels. Anyone who enjoys bird-watching or a good hike may consider visiting the Little Creek Wildlife Management Area.
