The hotel was fine, except for the loud air conditioner which made it difficult to sleep but that turned out to be the least of my problems there. I left my ring in the room. I fully realize the hotel is not responsible for lost objects. But the manager said they found it and would hold it for me. When... More

Hotel is located directly off exit 104 of Rt 1. Just look for the McDonalds and make the turn. Lobby is impressive, obviously a recent re-do. Parking was free, and luggage carts at the foyer. I switched my king to two queens as the check in clerk said the queen suites has whirlpool tubs. The carpets and decor are very... More

Absolutely do not book your reservation with your credit card information. I'm in the process of requesting a refund for a reservation that I made 24 hours ago. The reservation is for 2 weeks from now and I am surprised that the company is giving me a hard time. This is a good reason to avoid this establishment. No one... More

Comfortable bed and bedding, great room design separating bed(s) from hallway, in-room coffee and fridge. Loved the individual book lights on each side of the beds, adjustable wall thermostat, free breakfast, and free wi-fi. Friendly, helpful staff. These are the things that matter to me. I slept very well.

My annual spring pilgrimage from northern NH occurs every April. When heading to my PTSD (post-traumatic snow disorder) destination of Hatteras Island, NC, my halfway point is Dover, DE. This year, I overnighted at the Holiday Inn, Express on N. DuPont Highway in Dover. This turned out to be a great decision. Not only was the weather warmer, the hospitality... More

Maybe because this hotel is newer, but it has a tall, welcoming lobby that is very trendy and rivals the atmosphere of any Manhattan boutique hotel. We got a free upgrade to a fifth floor suite and it was spacious. Living room, separate bedroom, kitchen with mini-fridge, microwave and sink. Bathroom has hot tub with separate entrance to bedroom. Or... More

Thank you for sharing on Trip Advisor on your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express, Hotel & Suites. We are located off of Route 13, however, pretty far back after you turn off of the main road.

We stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting for a family wedding. Whilst showing some (minimal) signs of wear and tear, the hotel has very clean lines and is bright and cheerful. Check in was a breeze, we arrived late (almost 10pm) but we were in our room very quickly. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were full sized... More
