My family and I needed a nice spot to stop over night to break up our trip from NC to Cape Cod. We were avoiding 95, so we took 13 up to Dover.This was a good spot to stop. It was right of 13. We left after work, so I did not use the hotel for much other than to... More

The room was clean and neat. They had the slowest TV to surf on in all of recorded history. No "store," merely vending machines. The area around the hotel has lots of restaurants and shopping. Overall it was a very average HIE.

Stayed here after returning on a long 8 hour flight from Germany. Comfortable bed and clean room. Free breakfast was a bonus. Recommend this hotel for anyone traveling in the Dover area and looking for a clean and affordable hotel.

We stopped her on our way to Virginia Beach for a halfway point. Check in was fast. Our room was a two bed mini suite nonsmoking. We were the last room towards the stairs on the front side of the building. WE were on the 4th floor so we had an excellent view of the outdoor pool from our room!... More

We had a very pleasant one night stay at this property. Our navigation system couldn't find it and the hotel is set back a little from the main road so we initially missed it, but when we finally found it we were quite satisfied with the property. The front desk folks were very friendly and helpful. The room was quite... More

Stayed two times in one week as Dover is a half-way point to our vacation destination. This hotel is very accommodating, great for families and clean and modern. The breakfast buffet is good, well stocked and has a great variety of foods. The pool is small, but nice and always had clean towels. I have stayed in other hotels in... More

We often opt for the Holiday Inn Express facilities because they are typically clean and we know what to expect. This was no different. We had a well-appointed room and the check-in staff member was helpful, informative, and welcoming. The room was clean and with queen beds, we had a lot of room. We had to leave early the next...

Stayed here with my dad during our trip to the Monster Mile. We arrived at 10am race day and were able to park our car in the parking lot and walk about a mile to the track, awesome to beat traffic! I had originally booked a room with a Queen and a sofa-bed because no doubles were open. When we... More

Not great, but not terrible. Property looks older than it is, hasn't been taken that good care of. Everything seems fairly clean, just looks like it is aging. Was given a King room with a stand up shower. OK, can handle that, and the hot water was VERY plentiful, but the control was quite dirty, and the shower curtain was... More
