We had a very pleasant one night stay at this property. Our navigation system couldn't find it and the hotel is set back a little from the main road so we initially missed it, but when we finally found it we were quite satisfied with the property. The front desk folks were very friendly and helpful. The room was quite... More

Stayed two times in one week as Dover is a half-way point to our vacation destination. This hotel is very accommodating, great for families and clean and modern. The breakfast buffet is good, well stocked and has a great variety of foods. The pool is small, but nice and always had clean towels. I have stayed in other hotels in... More

We often opt for the Holiday Inn Express facilities because they are typically clean and we know what to expect. This was no different. We had a well-appointed room and the check-in staff member was helpful, informative, and welcoming. The room was clean and with queen beds, we had a lot of room. We had to leave early the next...

Stayed here with my dad during our trip to the Monster Mile. We arrived at 10am race day and were able to park our car in the parking lot and walk about a mile to the track, awesome to beat traffic! I had originally booked a room with a Queen and a sofa-bed because no doubles were open. When we... More

Not great, but not terrible. Property looks older than it is, hasn't been taken that good care of. Everything seems fairly clean, just looks like it is aging. Was given a King room with a stand up shower. OK, can handle that, and the hot water was VERY plentiful, but the control was quite dirty, and the shower curtain was... More

All I wanted was a nice, clean room that was affordable and accessible for my visit with family. We got a very nice room, comfy bed and some of the best customer service ever. Clearly management takes the time to make sure everyone is happy and taken care of. When we checked in, the front desk girl was probably one... More

We have had good experiences with H.I. Express hotels, so in spite of some TA reviews, we booked a night here on a road trip. The facility was perfectly fine, although the bathroom could have used a bit of work around the tub - nothing awful, just not as spiffy as our last few stays. The common areas were very... More

My Husband and I stayed here for a weekend in March 2014. We got a good rate from Citi Credit Card. Unfortunately, the hotel needs to be updated. Not sure what the building was before, but it seemed like it still needs a lot of work. No vent system in bathroom, water pressure very low and blow dryer barely worked.... More

Rooms are pretty clean. The bathroom fixtures could use a good cleaning. Nothing special. We only stayed one night. Typical Holiday Inn breakfast. Staff was fine. Not overly friendly but nice. It's located right off the highway easy to find.
