“little gem in the middle of delaware”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Went on a business trip in Delaware and stayed at the Hilton Gardens Inn, in dover. I was very happy with this hotel!! They have a great pool and jacuzzi, as well as a work out area, albeit a small one, but enough to sweat in!! The restaurant in the hotel was great and the people that work there were very nice. The price seemed a lot cheaper than any other Hiltons ive stayed in, but i didnt seem to mind that....Its a Hotel I would definately recommend!!

The Hilton Garden Inn is a nice clean well-maintained facility. The service staff is professional and friendly. Unfortunately, if you get there at 9pm or later, the dining options are very limited. The restaurant closes early, and you must drive to the casino Dover Downs to eat or Shuckers nearby.

It would be nice if they could keep the bar and some light snacks available for people arriving from NYC after a grueling drive.

We planned a one night trip to Delaware, planning on hitting the casino and doing some shopping without paying the taxes that are charged in the Peoples Socialist Republic of Maryland. I chose this hotel because it had an indoor pool and hot tub.

We upgraded to what they call the Jr Suite, which was well worth the extra few dollars. The room was clean and comfortable. The only problem was the fact than when we arrived, we found that the room was left unlocked. Apparently the cleaning crew had propped open the door and when they finished they never re-secured the room.

This was not a really big problem for me, I had my wife remain in the hallway while I checked to ensure the room was empty. When I mentioned it to the front desk, both that afternoon and the next morning, they did not consider it to be a problem. I consider any potential security issue to be a problem especially if it was a female traveling alone or with children. This issue is the reason that I only rate this hotel as Very Good as opposed to excellent.

The hot tub was great, the pool was small but serviceable, if a bit cold. The room itself had some issues with heat distribution, the sitting area was comfortable, but the bedroom area was cold. When the thermostat was set up from 70 to 73 degrees, the bedroom area then became very hot, to the point we had to lower it back to 70 in the middle of the night.

All in all this was an enjoyable stay, and we are likely to return when we visit the area again,

A return trip to this property. I found the room accommadating (typical HGI). The bed was comfortable, HVAC worked well and the room was quiet. The breakfast offered a little less than other HGI properties, but still has cooked to order eggs. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only issue during my stay was the internet speed. I can only get DSL at home, and the internet service during my stay was much slower than the DSL.

Room Tip: The back side of the property would be my choice

Nice facilities, helpful front desk staff. Rooms were clean. I was pleasantly surprised. I was there during the NASCAR race weekend, so the rate was very expensive for a Hilton Garden Inn, which is why I rated the value as poor. I have stayed at 5 star hotels and paid the same amount as it cost for this hotel, but at least it was clean.

Been using this hotel as a "stepping stone" to Ocean City, MD the last three summers. We only stay one night but all stays were excellent. Check in is always a breeze and a couple of times I was allowed to check in a little early (3 ish). Staff is always friendly, when you pass staff in the hallways / elevators / grounds they always say hi. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The restaurant area is bright and cheery. The fireplace and small lounge off the lobby is a nice touch. Internet access using their two computers was very easy, no finnicky passwords or login names, just click and go!! Pool area is a little small but it does the job. Hot tub was hot and bubbly, no complaints. Nicely equipped exercise room with headphones. We love the little tables out in front of pool area. It's a great little place to have a cool drink and read the paper. Great location right off the Scarborough exit of the Delaware 1. Neighborhood feels safe, parking lot is well lit. Hotel restaurant is somewhat reasonably priced. Other options / stores are: Wendy's is right in front of hotel, Bob Evans Restaurant is a half block walk. Wal-Mart used to be a block away but that location closed and moved further up the road about a mile or so and turned into a Supercenter. SONIC is a 1/4 mile down the road ... oh baby!
My only regret is that I haven't written any reviews of this great hotel in the past. I was just searching for a friend to book here also and saw the tripadvisor link below the Hilton one.

Room Tip: Always had rooms that faced the rear, very quiet.

This was a nice hotel. Its very clean and good customer service. I will definitely recommend this hotel. The location was conveniently located near the racetrack, casino and mall. We had Wendy's in front of the hotel if we wanted a late night snack and Bob Evans right next door.
