After travelling all day we chose the Holiday Inn in Dover. I chose it because we could get a cot (roll away) for the little one. Inquiries and check in went well and we were all ready to rest. One of the staff brought the cot, but left me with it to figure out how to let it down. Then...

Stayed here on a business trip. Convenient to Dover AFB, downtown restaurants and shopping, etc. Although the hotel is on the main highway, it is very quiet because it is set back off the main road. The breakfast was very good; they even had gluten free muffins for those who need that. The fruit was really fresh and good and...

We travel with a Great Dane so occasionally we have to search for a hotel that is pet-friendly, even though she is a perfect, quiet, tidy hotel guest.

Hotel is short distance from Route one, and right down the road to Dover Downs Casino and track. Thermostat on wall in the room are not hooked up to the heater. Seems like they upgraded the HVAC system and didn't take down the thermostat from the old system. I woke up at 3 am freezing and checked out the heating...

It's clean and the location worked for those of us in town for the Amish bicycle ride. The cost was draw dropping! In short, it was a Holiday Inn Express that offered free breakfast, free WiFi, parking, and fairly competent front desk staff. I suggest more outlets for charging electronic equipment in the room. That's a needed upgrade. There are...
