“Wonderful getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

This is one of the nicest hotels that I have ever stayed in. It is always very very clean. The staff is helpful and try to please. There is a nice little Mall right up the street. Michelle's estaurant is awsome but expensive.

I have been going to Dover Downs for several years. The rooms are lovely and spacious. I agree with the reviewer who mentioned pulling down the heavy duvet. How anyone sleeps with that weight on their legs is beyond me. I vote for lightweight blankets in each closet, too. Only problem with this trip is that the buffet was closed, but it has reopened as of today, so that will not affect any readers. It is supposed to be improved, with more personalized stations, so I will be sure to check it out on my next trip. I have never yet left the casino as a winner, but the free room takes a bit of the sting away!

Room Tip: I asked for a track view room even though the horses are not racing right now. It is more pleasant...

We only stayed one night, but we had a great time. The hotel room was beautiful. It was large with a big King Size Bed. 2 bottles of water in the fridge was a nice touch. The casino is big and smokeless. We didn't win but we had a great time. We ate in 2 of the restaurants. Frankies is Italian and a great deal for the price. We had a really nice dinner with great Service. On the other hand, The Garden Cafe was really bad. The service was very slow and the food was terrible. I completed a survey that was sent to me from Dover Downs and told them about the experience. I was contacted the next day by the manager of the Cafe and she assured me that they are working on the problem and that the next time we stop she would like me to call her.

Room Tip: Check the website for special from Monday thru Thursday.

Just spent a Sunday night at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, to enjoy a great room and contribute to the local economy in the casino. We have stayed there on numerous occasions, and have always found the accommodations to be excellent, with outstanding food available and good customer service. Will go back again when the "slot fund" allows.

Spent three nights at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino this past week for my third time. We had a nice room with a track view which was fun since there were some cars out racing on the track. I love this casino because of the non smoking. Played some slots....they had a lot of new ones since my last trip. Played my favorite game Video Poker and hit a royal for $1000.00. Awesome! They still don't have a poker bar there which is a big drawback since that is my game. Enjoyed dinner at Frankie's and Doc Macgrogan's also ate at the Garden Cafe. I had a great time all in all and can't wait to go back.

My mother and I went for an early Mother's Day trip. We only stayed one night but will certainly return. It is a very nice hotel and great options for food. Loved the coffee shop in the lobby! We are not big gamblers but loved the fact that the casino is smoke free! Lots of shopping in the area and we simply didn't have time to shop as much as we liked. We are definitely returning for more days! The staff at both the hotel and casino was very nice and professional. We ate at the Festival Buffet for breakfast and Frankie's for dinner. Both really nice with a good selection. Can't wait to return.
