Working for the US Government, I've stayed here on three occasions, the quality of the rooms are awesome, always clean and very comfortable. I rated them with five on the first visit, abstained from rating on the second and feel compelled to rate the third as three, or average. I felt the lady at the front desk was very condescending,...

This was a great stop for an overnight stay in business. This hotel is very similar to the rest of the chain. They are all good clean places that offer a great night's sleep. Prices are reasonable and it is definitely worth a stay

This particular Holiday Inn Express was very convenient to local Dover attractions (Dover Downs, Malls and local restaurants). It could use a bit of final touches to the rooms, but overall the staff makes up for the minor issues with their rooms. I would consider it for future use. Great breakfast with lots of morning choices included in the price.

We recently visited Dover for a family event and stayed at this Holiday Inn. From the minute we walked through the door, we knew this was someplace special.

We enjoy staying at HI Express. Always clean, great breakfasts and the staff are very accommodating. The front desk people and the kitchen persons were very customer oriented and went out of their way to please. We are going back in a couple of weeks and we are having more people come with us at this HI Express.

The hotel was set back from highway and was quiet. We were just here overnight, the room was fine, they had Bath and Body Works toiletries. The bed was comfy and the breakfast was the usual. Nedra was very nice at check in. We would stay here again.

Perfect for a quick overnight. Stayed here after a local brewery event, the rooms were spacious and nice. Love the Bath and Body Works products and the breakfast was good. Pillows were very comfortable! Pretty lobby too!

It is a decent hotel. The rooms could use some deep cleaning and a little updating. Especially the bathrooms. We stayed in room with whirlpool tub. It needed some serious cleaning. The front desk/staff were pleasant.

We stayed here 2 years ago, and we came back because it was good, and the location very good on our way south. The room we had this time had been redone. Very clean, very nice amenities. The breakfast seating was ample, and the food just fine.
