My stay was almost 6 weeks, they took care of all my needs during that time .Would recommend mainstay too anyone.
I'm away from home alot and it's hard to find a place that makes you feel like you are at home. From housekeeping too the front desk and management make sure your comfortable.
Thanks Mainstay

I apologize that your stay was an unpleasant one. Our check-in time is 3pm and the fact that your room wasn't ready at that time puzzles me. I apologize for the excessive noise as well, we do have a quiet policy that spans from 11pm to 8am.

Thank you for your comments and in the future please allow us the opportunity to accomodate your logding needs again to make it right.

The rooms were clean and in excellent condition. I found no major fault with anything except that the indoor pool isn't heated, nor is the pool room. The bedding could've been a bit nicer. If you have reason to be in Dover and aren't set on swimming during your trip, you could do a lot worse.

I do apologize that the indoor pool and pool room wasn't heated during your stay with us. We have since replaced the heating unit in the pool area. I also want you to know that we are in the process of updating the bedding in all of our suites, this will be completed by May.

Thank you for your feedback on these issues. It tells us what we are doing right, what we are doing wrong, and how we can improve.

First they offer up a full kitchen but when you check in you find the rooms are cramped, no closet space and the kitchen is a microwave and 2 burner range top. So if you had needs for an oven, forget it. Provided dishes looked like they hadn't been washed. There was no table to eat at and the bed was less than a foot from the heating and ac unit that cycled on all night no matter what setting you had it on. It started off blowing cold air and then hot and it blew directly into your face all night. Staff was loud in the halls while they flirted with each other. On top of it the hotel must not care for their employees as there seems to be a lack of an employee break room so they eat in the customer lobby or at the front desk.

Also the minute you walk into the lobby you are greated with heavy cigarette smell and then a big chemical flowery smell of some cleaning agent. So yucky.

The room & bathroom were spacious. Easy to drive to all Dover & surrounding attractions. Pet friendly. The room needed a serious cleaning, all obvious surfaces were clean but the corners, cracks, and behind things were very dirty (dirt/dust/food crumbs).

Room Tip: It is pet friendly, so you hear occasional barking.

Our room at Dover Mainstay was very accommodating and comfortable. We had a small kitchen with a large refrigerator, a large closet, and a very comfortable king size bed. The hotel was easy to locate off of the highway. Parking no problem. Ordered pizza from a place in town and had delivered to room, no problem. Breakfast was included in the room price and offerings were good. All of this for $99 a night. A very good deal!

Room Tip: One type of room has larger kitchen, sofa, large closet, and full bathroom The other type doesn'...
