The hotel room in this HIE puts a shame on Hoiiday Inn, Hilton, Double Tree, Crowne Plaza, etc. The desk is huge, the ambient light is just perfect. The size of my room is enormous. There is a refrigerator and bar sink. The breakfast foods are standard fare in HIE. I have not written a review for a long while,... More

Stayed here one night while in Dover for a family party. The lobby area was absolutely beautiful and the staff very friendly. We arrived right at 3 o'clock and were able to check right into our room. The room was clean and had a nice little kitchenette area with a microwave sink and refrigerator. The only complaint I had was... More

HIE is one of our favorite chains and this property is as nice as we expected. Everything was well done and inviting. Most outstanding in my mind were the two clerks we had contact with. Kelsey and Nedra were efficient and always smiling. I love to cut up and these two seemed like they did too. The breakfast was as... More

Hotel was just fine. Had a king suite with Jacuzzi tub (nice for a long soak after the ride down). Room was clean and neat. Bed was comfortable. AC Unit a bit noisy, but our sleep was fine. Reception staff was friendly and welcoming. Did not have breakfast. NO complaints for what it was.

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
