I recently stayed at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Dover, Delaware. It was my first visit to the hotel, but I can assure it won't be my last. We were warmly greeted at the front desk by Star, who was friendly and hospitable. She made me feel like I was a guest in her home. The hotel's location is just off the North Dupont Highway (U.S. Route 13). The directions on the hotel's link, through www.choicehotels.com, are spot on.
The lobby of the hotel is very striking. There are books to read and comfy chairs to relax in. There's even a little nook where someone could curl up and have a little more privacy. As someone who occasionally travels alone, I am always conscious of my environment and the safety of my accommodations. It was reassuring to find out that the only entrance to the hotel was the front door.
I've visited enough hotels to recognize the signs of a property which lacks attention. I didn't notice any of those signs at the Comfort Inn & Suites. The hallways were tidy and the elevators were clean. It was quite obvious that the housekeeping staff took pride in their work.
Our room was very nice and was immaculate and comfortable. My nephew, who accompanied me on the trip, noticed the treat waiting for us: a basket with two bottles of water and an assortment of snacks. It was a pleasant and welcome surprise.
One of the perks of staying at this hotel is that Dover Downs provides a complimentary shuttle to their location. Dover Downs is not far from the Comfort Inn & Suites, but after driving for a couple of hours - plus dealing with Friday afternoon traffic - the thought of having someone else drive was very appealing to me. As Star had suggested, we called her shortly before we left the room and headed to the lobby. We were told that it would be about 10 minutes before the shuttle arrived at the hotel. Unfortunately, the shuttle didn't arrive for almost 25 minutes. Star had phoned them twice, and apologized to us for the delay, even though the problem was clearly the fault of Dover Downs. It was a very minor glitch in our stay and certainly didn't affect our opinion of the Comfort Inn & Suites and its staff.
Breakfast was included with our room, and we enjoyed hot and cold selections in the hotel's breakfast area. A different woman was at the desk that morning and although I didn't get her name, she was as pleasant and friendly as Star. She wished us a good day as we headed for the Dover Days celebration, and even asked if we'd enjoyed ourselves when we returned. Check-out was a breeze.
I highly recommend the Comfort Inn & Suites in Dover, Delaware. The location is convenient to Dover Downs and downtown Dover, which boasts many historical landmarks and is simply beautiful. But even if you just stop in Dover for the night, the Comfort Inn & Suites can provide you with comfortable and pleasant accommodations.
