Stayed one night at Dover Downs Hotel and Casino. Had a wonderful time. Very pleasant. Rooms were clean and roomy. Staff was very friendly. Casino is very large and roomy and it was so nice that it was smoke-free!

We stopped here on our way to Washington, D.C. The area was very nice and the hotel was really clean, and so was the casino. This was much appreciated. The little pastry shop next to check-in wasn't that good. The breakfast buffet offered a lot of choices, but there were many flies in there and I didn't like that. I... More

This was the first time in 8 years we could not book a room thru the hotel but thru an on line company. We paid dearly but always enjoy the visit. The slot machines were not so generous this year. Better LUCK next year.

We stayed on a Sun night so the casino and hotel seemed moderately quiet. I am from near A.C so that's all I have to compare it to. The bars are fine..average priced drinks. Bartender, Debbie, very nice. We gambled a bit and went up and down. Had fun though. The Garden cafe is open 24 hours but they stop... More

I come as often as I can with my fellow casino-mates, but this time I brought my disabled adult (but NASCAR-lovin') daughter with me so she could go on the Thursday track tour. We even tried some slots. I can't get over the warmth and kindness shown to my daughter by EVERY Dover employee. They so enriched our visit. Great... More

We spent a week at Dover Downs attending a conference. Our room was nice with all the basic amenities you would expect in a conference hotel like this. The fridge in the room and the spacious table with the coffee machine on it were nice perks. Housekeeping was a bit minimal when it came to keeping up with towels and... More

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay at Dover Downs for five days while participating in a car show and meet. We were both pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable; and the hotel staff, particularly the chambermaid assigned to our room, was very responsive and helpful. Another surprise was the quality of... More

The hotel is very nice. Rooms clean & spacious, but the casino lacks in many areas. I am used to the casinos in Las Vegas, and this just does not compare as to slots and table games. They seem to think that people want to play at high stakes tables, when in fact, the tables are empty and the dealers... More

This is an excellent hotel and casino. The rooms are neat, clean and spacious. Get the valet parking, it's only $2.50 per day and it is hard trying to find a parking spot otherwise. Their are many eating spots in the casino. The Garden Cafe is open 24 hours and the food is good and reasonable. Breakfast $11. I will... More
