So I don't smoke, but I have to say the thing that stood out with this property was the, "you can't even smoke on the property unless you do so in your car". I understand, I don't like cigarette butts, and I really don't like the smell either...but how about having a smoking area or something...just seems pretty harsh, but I guess that's the way of the world these days...

As for the rest of the hotel, the beds were great for a Days Inn, the bathroom was tiny, but functional. The A/C worked better than most hotels. Breakfast was above average-probably because of the waffle maker =)

The people I dealt with at the counter were very nice. In retrospect, I really liked my stay quite a bit. The town is great, more than I could have expected. Oh yeah, there is a grocery store (not a huge one-but rather a small town local one) a 90 second walk from the hotel which is great. There is plenty of dinning options as well.

Other than the harsh smoking policy, I really liked the place. I would stay again.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are a Smoke Free Property and do allow people to smoke in their personal vehicle. Being downtown we do no have alot of extra space to allow a smoking area but we are very close to side walks just a few steps away to accomodate smokers. Thank you for taking the time to write your comments.

Like others, we were staying overnight due to our older kid participating in UNH orientation. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The pool and hot tub were clean and nice and the complimentary breakfast was sufficient. For the price, it's nice. I'm looking forward to staying here when we visit again!

If you are thinking of going to the Days Inn in Dover it will help to know this is cross between a motel and a hotel. Very reasonably priced and a good value! I stayed here several times. The staff, Joy and Tammie are absolutely wonderful, very caring, friendly and will make you feel at home. If you are a woman traveling alone you will feel secure. The hotel has two parts: 1, basic rooms which are comfortable and clean - the one I had was a little crowded with two double beds and all the amenities including a fridge and microwave. Some basic rooms have doors that open to the outside like a typical motel (I think these are like the room I had but without the fridge and microwave), my room was next to the pool and hot tub indoors where it was warm and cozy during a snowstorm. The tub and pool are small but very nice. 2. Executive suites are in separate building and are wonderful! Mine was a very large room with two double beds, a FULL kitchen and a sofa, desk and work area. extremely comfortable, quiet, cozy and clean.

The location is in downtown Dover, very convenient to trains and buses to Boston and Portland Maine. A 25 minute drive to beaches in NH and Maine, and a short drive to Portsmouth. There is a great seafood restaurant right next door and Indian and Thai food just one block away.

hotel was nicely located in downtown dover, the suite we stayed in had a comfortable lay out, the television had a good assortment of channels and the beds were comfortable, the staff was accommodating and attentive, breakfast was the usual continental fare. although, we found a used tissue and stained blanket in the sofa bed and the wireless internet was very slow and unreliable.

The best part of the hotel was the staff. Joy,Tammie and all the staff were welcoming,friendly,warm & very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.The suite I had was very comfortable, especially the bed & pillows.
Ideally located to local restaurants,
The hotel is well located to Amtrak & buses for touring New England.
Overall a very enjoyable experience.
