Walking into the main area did not smell of smoke as some had mentioned and i'm allergic to cigarettes and fragrence and had no issue. Now the back entry did have a smoke smell probably from people smoking... More

This hotel boasts of being smoke-free, but as soon as you walk into the hallway to go to your room, you are SLAMMED with the disgusting smell of an ashtray that has never been cleaned. The room, thankfully, did not smell of anything rancid. The room was clean. The shower head has seen better days and had terrible water pressure.... More

First I want to apologize for the smell in the hallway. We do ask guest to not smoke in the building. However, from time to time some one will break the rule. I would like you to know that new carpeting has been ordered. There was a slight delay in production and we are now waiting on it to be... More

Excellent accommodation for handicapped persons as available. Free breakfast was well stocked and desirable. Attendant very accommodating. They held the doors for us, as we were in wheelchairs. Enjoyed the cleanliness of the room. We pay a little more to stay here, and we get what we pay for!

Hotel Lobby was dark and dingy. Rooms and restrooms were small, cramped and dark. Breakfast was terrible {extremely limited and frozen microwave items}. We ate at Mc Donalds next door. This hotel is more of a cheap motel atmosphere. This Hotel is certainly not up to Best Western standards. I would not stay here again and cannot recommend it to... More

I stayed here with my husband and his aunt. I would say that this hotel was a great value because it was so inexpensive. But if you are paying more than $60-70 a night, you might want to try someplace else. Also, I found a great deal through Priceline which was cheaper than booking through the hotel's actual website.

We decided to spend the night in Dover on our way home - after pricing the hotels in the area we chose Best Western. We were surprised at how nice the hotel was and I was very happy to find a smoking room there. This will be the hotel we choose on our return trips.
