“Small & Quiet with Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We very much enjoyed our stay at Dover House - more for the location and history than the amenities. Fully aware that this was an older property, we weren't disappointed by the room or kitchen size, and the darkness of the bedroom really worked well for sleeping later into the morning.
We traveled with family and friends for a one week vacation and found the accomodations adequate for our party of 7. Yes, we needed two rooms. The property is right across A1A from the beach - we couldn't have asked for a better location.

Some of the furniture was in disrepair and it is why our review is not Excellent.

Room Tip: If you want to overlook a courtyard instead of the parking lot, ask for a room in the main building...

Stayed at the Dover House for a week through an RCI trade late April 2014. Weather for Florida was stunning for 7 days straight. Dover House is right across from the beach and just off the main strip Atlantic Blvd. Unit was a small one bedroom, bath, with living room and small kitchen. Not your 4* hotel resort but a perfect place for a couple or couple with kids to enjoy the beach and everything south Florida has to offer.

Room Tip: We had a first floor unit in building 3, don't see how you can go wrong with any of the rooms.

My husband and I spent a week at The Dover House and it was perfect for us. We had an end unit on the upper floor so we had plenty of light due to extra windows. We actually had everything we needed. Check-in was easy and the property is well kept even if it isn't new. The couch was very comfortable (sometimes in condos the couch can look nice but not feel good) and we slept very well on the mattress. There was ample closet and drawer space. On top of all of that, the location is perfect, right across the street from a beautiful beach and walking distance from fantastic restaurants. We would love to return again.

Room Tip: The upper floor will offer a view of the ocean from the landing outside your unit where you can sit...

My sister and I booked two weeks in this hotel.. Although it was renovated yet I find it lacks a lot of standard hotel amenities ... The bedroom is extremely dark I could hardly find anything in my closet and it had no mirrors .. none ... the kitchen is OK although the cutlery were probably bought in the dollar store ... When we first checked in rather late ... I took a shower and went to bed and to my astonishment, the sheets were not cleaned... there was sand and coarse hair... my sister and I had to change them in order to sleep... Next day we went to the office and they were extremely shocked and apologetic and we got ourselves new clean fitting sheets... Another strange thing, building one is separated from the other two building by an active street where cars continuously circulate and use as U turns... That said, the hotel is average and OK for a short stay... The staff though is out of this world... friendly, courteous, charming, accommodating, helpful, smiling, efficient .. a true delight ... and the location is superb .. across the street is the beach and 10 minutes from the hotel East Atlantic where all the good hotels, boutiques and activities are ... next door three very good restaurants too...

Room Tip: All rooms can see parts of the ocean as all Delray Beach beaches are hidden by trees

My family and I stayed for a week. Very clean and nice. Access to beach was perfect and within walking distance to shopping and restraunts. Will definitely be coming back! The employees were very welcoming and helpful whenever we needed anything.

This is an older time share property, but adequately maintained. Had a one bedroom condo unit for four people, which was adequate. Beds were comfortable, kitchens were adequate, and location directly across from the beach was perfect. The only drawback is that the rooms are non-smoking and there were many smokers there when we were there. They sit on the front patio areas which are all connected, and the smoke drifts to all other units. This is nasty! They should book all smokers in the same building so they can smoke each other out!

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the building where the office is located, which is the southern set of building...
