Took advantage of travelzoo deal a couple of weeks ago. The lobby was very lovely & elegant, check in great. We got a corner room, racetrack view on 8th floor, so spacious. Bathroom huge! Had dinner @ Doc Ms, both enjoyed meal. Fresh seafood. After dinner, I played slots for 3 hours & broke even. Next morning hubby said breakfast... More

Check-in was pretty quick and the staff was very friendly. The rooms are spacious and the shower is huge. The indoor swimming pool is extremely small and the fitness center is small as well and is not large enough to accommodate the amount of rooms that they have at this hotel. We ate at the hotel and ordered the buffet... More

Gambling is not our thing, but we got a Travelzoo deal for an overnight stay with all meals, so we thought we'd give this a shot. It turned out to be a very good move. The hotel is great - rooms are comfortable and staff friendly. The buffet offered excellent variety, and the food was fairly tasty and somewhat better... More

Had a discount voucher for an overnight stay and was pleasantly surprised. The room on the 7th floor was spacious and clean with a view of the track(harness racing at this time of the year). The bathroom was spacious and instead of the obligatory tub with shower there was a really large tiled shower with glass doors that looked like... More

Dover Downs is a nice hotel that provides comfortable overnight accommodations for guests wishing to gamble. It offers little more. For what it is, I'd recommend staying here, especially if you are able to get the Travelzoo special. That is a good deal. I would not recommend this hotel as a romantic getaway, or a weekend to splurge. There is... More

We have stayed here three or four times. Every time has been very good. Great service, they always seem to be able to "upgrade" our room purchase when we arrive. Rooms are clean and neat. Quick check in and check out, can't say enough. Love this place. Wish all hotels had this kind of service.

I loved the casino and hotel room. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean. The little shops are nice, especially the sweet shop. Stay away from the buffet even if you have comps. Go to the oyster bar. We will return to stay at the hotel.

The room was very clean and comfortable. Nice large bathroom and nice view of the race track. Could view the harness racing from the hotel room. No complaints at all about this property. Linens are exceptionally clean and the hotel uses cotton duvet covers instead of bedspreads, which adds to the cleanliness factor. Individual heat controls in the rooms. Nice... More

My beef was more with the so called deal I bought with travelzoo. 108 for a room and buffet passes during a weeknight. Turns out that I could have gotten the room for 59 and passed on the yuckie buffet. But I loved the hotel! Staff was awesome! Casino was great too! Would def go back and skip travelzoo next... More

A friend and I took advantage of a Travel Zoo package that included a night's stay and free buffet dinner, breakfast and lunch at the Dover Downs hotel.. We were impressed with the hotel and casino, but can't say the same about the buffet. It was so bad after eating dinner at the buffet upon our arrival that we didn't... More
