We stayed here two nights a couple weeks ago. The rooms were over priced. The fridge did not work. The beds were terribly uncomfortable, with springs felt in both beds in the room - mine had springs across where my lower back was - I finally lay on top of pillows (including one from the car to make it work)....

Reading the reviews I expected a down-at-the-heels motel. Since I only had a choice of two motels in Dover,I chose the Dover Inn. GOOD CHOICE. The room was large,VERY clean, had a microwave,refrigerator- not expected at this price. To find a hair dryer and an iron/board was exceptional. It was also quieter than the usual motel. If I am in... More

A great place to stay for fishermen, hunters, or visitors to the Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area. Located 1/8th mile from The Trace which runs through LBL and within a few minutes of Kentucky Lake and Barkley Lake boat ramps and marinas. They have traditional motel rooms that have microwaves, mini frig, iron-ironing boards, and hair dryers. They... More

Great family (American) owned property. Clean and close to all the area attractions. Everyone I met always asked if there was anything else I needed - even extra cleaning rags to wipe down my motorcycle.

We were having a family reunion at the Brandon Springs Group Camp, about 10 mile or so from this motel. We had originally planned on staying in Cadiz Ky., not realizing that it was about 35 miles away. When contacted by a family member who told us that the town of Dover was much closer, I started searching for motels.... More

Dover INN was the closest hotel from our camp ground. The staffs are usually assleep at around 10 pm. But they are very cooperative... More

Dover Inn is one of a limited choices in Dover, TN. Regardless, you CANNOT beat the customer service! When we first checked in our reservation was not exactly as we had made. Got cleaned up and went to dinner. By the time we got back, someone had checked out early, they had taken the time to clean the room and... More

We happened upon this place on our way to visit Land between the Lakes, and enjoyed our stay here. It is an older motel property, with add ons and a few cabins. Its has a quaint style that reminds me of the family motels that we stayed in on vacations in the 60's and 70's, when they each had some... More
