I should start my review by stating I grew up in Dover and am more than familiar with the hotels that have existed in that city for more than 30+ years. So I know the history of this particular hotel (or at least the history of the building). The photos online had me thinking we were reserving a room at... More

We are staying at this hotel for Nascar race weekend May 31- June 2. Our first night here wasn't bad. The bed is fairly comfortable and the room is spacious. We haven't used the pool yet, but might use it today after the race. There are a lot of people here, but you wouldn't know it as it is very... More

The location is not "downtown" as stated in the name. Did not include wifi and breakfast but was less money than other similar hotels we stayed at on this short road-trip. Didn´t have a pool. It´s a bit run down but the room was clean. The beds were way to soft for us ... but that´s a matter of taste.... More

Hotel is 1 mile from casino. Holiday Inn is clean, the room has a great and comfortable bed. The air conditioning was noisy. The front desk staff was very friendly, both day and night shifts. Wish the room had a fridge.

We got this room on an expres deal through Priceline. We weren't expecting much, but boy were we pleasantly surprised! It was fabulous! The staff was great and very friendly. We got a room on the second floor. It was beautifully remodeled, clean, and quiet (when our kids were sleeping). The TV was acting squirrely and the front desk clerk... More

Front lobby is nice and clean. Clerk was friendly. That was about it. It's a hike to get to the room. Carpets are dirty. Elevator smells horrible and old. It needs a refresher to be at par with a holiday inn. Gym is non existent. It's just a 10 by 10 spade with old bad treadmills. No weights. They did... More

At the last minute, my wife and I decided to stop in Dover. The Casino was booked (and expensive) on a Saturday night. After checking Hotels.com, we received a $99 deal at the Holiday Inn on Dupont Hwy. I was surprised how close it was to the casino. Walking is possible, but I'd only suggest that during the day.

We wrongly thought this hotel would be a step up from the Best Western we had previously stayed at in Smyrna. Instead we ended up without a fridge, microwave, or continental breakfast. You can get a couple eggs and bacon with a cup of juice and coffee delivered to your room in the morning for $15 after a fee and... More

Please accept our apology for the issues during your stay. Unfortunately we only offer refrigerators and microwaves upon request due to having a full service restaurant onsite. While continental breakfast is not a standard for full service Holiday Inns, we do offer a breakfast special available daily for under $7. We wish we could have met your needs during your... More

Stayed here because of it's close proximity to the Amish Country Bike Tour. Arrived early and got a room right away. The room was clean. I checked the shower immediately, since the water pressure is typically a problem but it passed the test. The sink counter was too high for me. The measly coffee maker was on the bathroom sink...
