We enjoyed the location, walk to Café 99. Starbucks down the street. Quiet, polite staff. Good value and if you want to stay in a reasonable place and still visit Portsmouth it is great. Jump on the highway and get anywhere, no traffic noise at the hotel though.

We live slightly more than an hour away from Dover, but due to numerous Friday commitments and back to back Saturday/Sunday family reunions, we decided to stay at the Hampton Inn, Dover. A circuitous route, due to appointments, took us from Amherst, to Henniker, to Exeter, to Hampton, and we arrived in Dover road weary. A smooth check-in and comfortable room eased our transition from road weary to a relaxed state.

Our 2nd floor room was near the elevator, but hallway/elevator traffic was negligible during our two-night stay. More problematic was plumbing noise - the rush of water when a toilet was flushed on the floor above. Our room was at the back of the hotel, over the pool, so we had a view of trees and a fence between a neighboring house and the hotel. Be aware this hotel sits between a busy commercial area and a neighborhood of private homes. Despite the location, we did not notice any issues related to outside noise.

The bathroom had a walk-in shower, no tub. There were not enough bath towels, but that was quickly corrected with a call to the front desk, who notified Housekeeping. We also needed firmer pillows, and we found them on our bed when we returned from dinner. The king-size bed and luxurious linens allowed for comfortable sleep. The room had a microwave oven and mini-refrigerator; we did not use the microwave oven, but appreciated the ‘fridge for our beverages and ice packs. It was easy to connect to the internet; we did not use the television. The coffee machine on a bathroom shelf seemed like an odd location, but we did not use it, taking advantage of coffee in the breakfast area both days.

The breakfast was fresh and plentiful, even at 9:30 a.m., with service ending at 10:00 a.m. I was most grateful the fresh fruit mix did NOT include blueberries, as I have an allergy to the pervasive New England fruit. Choices included scrambled & hard boiled eggs, sausage, waffles, pastries, bagels, muffins, dry cereal, hot oatmeal, and numerous beverages.

There are a few energy saving measures that were inconvenient. Having no night light, I left the bathroom light on at night, but it shut off automatically. The cooling/heating system has a mind of its own, especially during the night, and it did not maintain a steady temperature.

I was disappointed that I forgot my bathing suit and could not take advantage of the pool, as it looked clean and inviting. Next time I won't forget to come prepared!

Would we stay here again? Yes…the amenities far outweighed the very few discomforts.

Room Tip: We will try the 3rd floor next time, as our 2nd floor room had the sound of rushing water every time...

I stayed only one night but the family had such a great time when they visited me. The pool is very nice and clean with plenty of towels. The room was a good size and bedding with pillows was very comfy. Little things like charger outlets on night stand, and thermostat on wall made my stay easier. Liked large shower instead of tub. I'm short so I didn't like the high sink and counter. Gave location a 4 because it was hard for me to find hotel (not from area). All staff so helpful and friendly. First time I stayed at a Hampton Inn and probably won't be my last.

This is our second stay at this hotel, we're staying at this location for our shopping spree in the area. You are close to Kittery Outlets, Target, Walmart, 2 malls, Fox Run and Newmington, all within 20 min of driving. Hampton Beach for a little break in the sun is only 25 min away. A good variety of restaurants also nearby.

Nice little hotel with great breakfast. A little noisy on the AC and bathroon exhaust, but a comfortable bed makes up for it. The TV was a bit small for how far away it is, but not everyone has bad eyes.

The room was very clean and the you could not hear a sound from the hallway. My only complaint is the breakfast scrambled eggs didn't seem like they were made with real eggs. Everything else was perfect.
