Spent a night at Dover Downs using a Groupon. Checkin was smooth and took less than 5 minutes. The room was pleasant - clean and the in room wi-fi was strong enough for Netflix. The deal included the dinner buffet & breakfast buffet. Service at both was very good. Food at the dinner was so-so. Breakfast was very good. The room was pleasant - clean and the in-room wi-fi was strong enough for Netflix. Valet parking was prompt; no long wait. The casino was well lit and no shortage of seats at the table games. I'll go back.

I visited last week and found this to be a nice casino hit off the beaten path! The rooms were clean, the service great and the casino charming... as long as you look at the beautifully painted murals on the ceilings and dont focus on the fact that a racetrack IS the only real view, you will be fine. I'd go again when I need a quick get away without really getting away.

Room Tip: buffet is what you make it! I liked the breakfast better than the dinner.

My husband and I took advantage of a Travelzoo deal for one night at the Dover Downs Casino Hotel since we had never been there before. We were both very impressed with the hotel and casino. The property has both valet parking and free self parking. The hotel lobby is beautiful! After a short wait at check in, we went up to our room on the 6th floor, which overlooked the race track. The room was very large for casino standards. The mattress was a little disappointing as it felt "springy" but the bed linens were nice and everything was very clean. As for the casino, they had a great variety of slot machines which we enjoyed. They also have table games (it looked they may add more tables on the weekends as there was extra room on the floor nearby.) The whole casino is nonsmoking which was great!!!! We will definitely be returning soon.

My husband and I spent one night at the Hotel/Casino. We had a Travel Zoo deal which was for a king room facing the track, $25 in slot play, valet parking, 20% off shopping and spa, and complimentary buffet dining from 4:00 pm on the day we arrived until 4:00 pm the next day. We arrived at 3:15 and were able to check in right away. Our room was large with a large bathroom. It was standard for a 3 star hotel. The hotel and casino staff were friendly. The casino was nice with new slots and reasonable tables. The slots didn't seem too tight. I played on the $25 for the first 4 hours we were there. Cocktails are not complimentary when playing, but there are complimentary soda stations. We only had breakfast at the buffet. After reading reviews of dried out food, I opted for the omelet station and the omelet was good. They make their own donuts and we tried one. It was just ok.

Fantastic first stay at Dover and the view of the track added to it (unfortunately no racing action, but it still was worth it). Employees were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Room was a nice 2 room suite but nothing outstanding. It was clean and well appointed but the bath was just average. Casino was a lot of fun and even paid off a little. Overall, a good experience

Room Tip: Spend a little extra for a suite, especially if you are a NASCAR fan.

Just got back from a one night stay at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino. Booked it through Travelzoo which included a one night stay, valet parking, unlimited meals @ the Festival Buffet, $25 Toppers Spa credit & $25 in casino slots. The hotel is well maintained. Check in & check out went smoothly. Room size is great. We had a track side room with perfect views of the track. Room was comfy & bathroom was quite large.The buffet was awesome. Everything under the sun available. Presentation was nice as well. No complaints. If you see a deal on this hotel, take it!

Room Tip: We had upgraded track view room on the 8th floor. Great view of the track if you like racing.

My mom and I went for a quick overnight gambling adventure and stayed at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino. Moms goes alot so the rooms are comped for frequent guests of the casino. You can't check in until after 4pm but we got there around 1 and just gambled until check in. The casino is on the main floor and has slots and tables. Good variety of slots too though I am particularly fond of one of the penny machines that gave lots of Bonus games! Rooms are nice and decent size. We were all the way at the end of the hallway so it was a bit of a walk. All floors are non-smoking except for the 4th floor. Bathrooms are very nice and large - nothing incredibly fancy I liked it alot. I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Try to stay near the elevators or else you walk forever
