“Top notch hotel facility”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Loved this hotel! I had a king room which was very spacious and CLEAN. The bathroom was very large, nice shower and included a phone. The heating unit was quiet (which I find to be unusual when traveling) as well as the entire floor. A small refrigerator also provided a way to keep beverages cold. Elevator access required the use of a room key (security reasons I suppose) which was OK. Of course the entire casino is smoke free, something I love, so you didn't have that lingering smoke making its way onto the room floors. Our room included the breakfast buffet which was delicious....made to order omelets and all of the accompaniments including poached salmon if you choose. The staff was extremely friendly throughout the facility and everything, everywhere, was so clean. Loved it there.

Dover Downs Hotel is a first class hotel and I can understand why it has been awarded AAA four diamonds rating. I have stayed there several times. All of the rooms are well maintained, spotlessly clean, and well thought out. The beds are extremely comfortable, there are always plenty of towels, and room service is exceptional. In addition, there is free internet access, in room safes, mini frig, and coffee maker. With Revel now moving to allowing smoking, if you are a non smoker who likes to gamble in smoke free comfort, I strongly recommend giving Dover Downs Casino Hotel a try. You will not regret it.

Room Tip: Sign up for a player's card and receive a discount at the buffet.

Dover Downs has several nice but not too expensive restaurants along with the premier Michelle's which is pricey but great for Sunday brunch. The rooms at DD are very nicely furnished and the room service is great. Meeting rooms are varied and spacious. Entertainment is often available and not too costly.

Room Tip: The rooms on higher floors, away from the casino are great.

First and foremost, I left with more money that I came with!!! Clean comfy room! Friendly staff! Not a big fan of the parking but it is ok. Valet is available but I don't really like to valet so that is my hang up. Great buffet breakfast! Overall, very enjoyable! I will repeat!

Ok so the first time I went here I didn't like it but we gave it another shot. Since then we have come to favor it over the other ones in the tri-state area. Here are the pros and cons -

Pros -
First off they give the best comps I have received anywhere hands down (inc AC and LV)
Brightly lit
Large casino floor with a great variety of games
Excellent food at Frankies at a great price and the buffet is extensive and good too
Bells and whistles are going off everywhere lots of winners all around and loose slots last time we went the woman a few slots down won over 6k (all but the section to the right of the tables don't know why)
Many places to eat and nice shops
Very nicely decorated

Cons -
The valet is slow
The areas near the night club and the restaurants when they convert to a bar are extremely loud
The minimums at the table games are higher than most others and there are limited tables
Larger amount of drinking clientele and more younger patrons than many other places
At times it can be very busy
Not many cocktail waitresses

Overall I can deal with the few cons because I stay away from the bar area, don't play the table much anymore and use the beverage stations. The only thing I really dislike are the crowds but I haven't been during the week so I can't say about those times. I would put up with alot more to be at a place that pays well anyway. Hope these help. We'll keep going back.

Room Tip: Book early this place is almost always booked.

Took advantage of an over night package they offered including 3 meals.
Spacious rooms, very friendly service and very good buffet.
Not as big as one you might find in Atlantic City but what they offered was a little beyond the normal fare.
The dessert choices were much better in my opinion then many larger buffets.
Close to Wilmington and would definitely go again
