If your're in the Dover, Delawre area and need a central place to stay, The BW Galaxy Inn is for you. I would highly recommend it for military families visiting their active duty enlistees. God Bless Our Troops! I appreciated how close this was to the base, shopping and eateries. I highly recommend this hotel!

The only problem is that there is no elevator and you will work to get your bags up the stairs. Located right outside the main gate of Dover... More

We had over a month to find lodging in August in Delaware, I wasn't sure I could find multiple rooms for the birding field trip we were planning, but we found this place and everyone was happy with the price, the quality and I am sure many will remember this.

Christa at front desk, she went above and beyond her duties, just to make sure all the guests were taking care of! She should train other employees in the hospitality business!

We stayed here for one night enroute from our home to Ocean City, MD. This hotel, while not the Ritz, is clean, serviceable & conveniently located. Check-in / check-out personnel were friendly, esp. the young man for evening check-in. Our room was clean, the bedding was clean and fresh smelling, and everything in the room worked fine. There is a... More

The breakfast was wonderful, the two queen beds worked out fine and were comfortable, and the room was the right size with all we needed; such as, internet, television, table and chairs, plus a good air conditioner.

I highly recommend this motel if you're in the Dover area. Very high quality amenities and great value for the price. It's also centrally located to the many activities in the area, principally boating, fishing, swimming and general daytripping for sightseeing.

I am happy to see that you enjoyed many of the local attractions. I am proud to say the Rehoboth was just ranked as one of the best beaches on the east coast. They are clean and super family friendly. I hope you got the opportunity to enjoy everything they had to offer. I hope you will visit again soon.... More

Highly recommend this hotel! Needed a place to stay on the way to Bethany Beach. This hotel has clean rooms, updated decor and friendly staff. Great value as compared to other Dover DE hotels at the same price.
