Dover Downs is a lovely hotel, spacious, clean rooms, pleasant housekeeping staff and accommodating front desk. Let me start by saying we're not complainers, really we're not....in fact we go out of our way to compliment servers and wait staff but the Festival Breakfast Buffet, didn't allow many compliments to be offered the two mornings we were there. We've eaten... More

This is our 5th or 6th time staying here and we are mostly happy. All times, except this one, the rooms have been very clean. We have always been on the upper floors but this time our rooms weren't ready so they placed us on the 4th floor. While I believe this is a non-smoking hotel (the casino is non-smoking),... More

This hotel lives up to its 5-stars. We have stayed there several times, but this last time was extra special. For my husband's birthday, they booked us in a suite. It was an extra unexpected treat to celebrate with. It is always clean and modern. You don't have to worry about anything broke or dirty there. Recommed it highly.

The National Sorority of Phi Delta Kappa, Inc., held our annual conference at Dover Downs. It was a pleasant stay and the room was very nice and comfortable. No complaints. Gambling is on the main floor, which was not a problem for me since I'm not a gambler. Nice restaurants inside the hotel where you didn't have to leave to... More

We stayed 3 nights and everything was great. Check-in was fast and friendly. The room was spacious, and more importantly, Quiet, and the beds were very comfortable. All of the staff were friendly and always had a smile and a greeting for you. There was one exception - one of the female bartenders at the Gazebo Bar had a little... More

We were watching the NASCAR race on TV and they mentioned this hotel and we figured this would be our next trip. It is a very nice hotel and big. The parking was free but if you wanted valet parking it was available at a small cost. We went during the week so it wasn't very busy. Check-in was quite... More

After arriving to the room and inspecting found a plastic knife in the chair. the two lounge chairs arms were worn and stained. So glad I... More

Some nice restaurant choices on property and tons of stuff in Dover. We ate at Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House just off the casino and it was good. The... More

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
