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...

We needed a one-night stopover on our way back to NH from Virginia Beach and found a good rate here. I stay at many HIE properties each year and I found this above average. The hotel was clean, the room spacious, and the lobby comfortable. The breakfast attendant was incredibly friendly and there were even a few more choices than...

Stay somewhere else. We stayed three nights. Hotel had the nerve to blame my family instead of owning up to their mistake of not cleaning our room one day. Said we left the "Do Not Disturb" sign up. We didn't use that sign or put it out. After we returned home, I notified IHG Rewards and they at least apologized...

Worst HIE where I have ever stayed! Room 411 4th floor hallway humid and very warm. Doors that I passed had greasy finger streaks/marks. Immediately noticed that the beds were made sloppily, Stains on walls, filthy carpets with stains made my feet black, A/C did not cool room or reduce the humidity (old style without thermostat and under the window),...

The hotel was fine, except for the loud air conditioner which made it difficult to sleep but that turned out to be the least of my problems there. I left my ring in the room. I fully realize the hotel is not responsible for lost objects. But the manager said they found it and would hold it for me. When...

Hotel is located directly off exit 104 of Rt 1. Just look for the McDonalds and make the turn. Lobby is impressive, obviously a recent re-do. Parking was free, and luggage carts at the foyer. I switched my king to two queens as the check in clerk said the queen suites has whirlpool tubs. The carpets and decor are very...

Absolutely do not book your reservation with your credit card information. I'm in the process of requesting a refund for a reservation that I made 24 hours ago. The reservation is for 2 weeks from now and I am surprised that the company is giving me a hard time. This is a good reason to avoid this establishment. No one...

Comfortable bed and bedding, great room design separating bed(s) from hallway, in-room coffee and fridge. Loved the individual book lights on each side of the beds, adjustable wall thermostat, free breakfast, and free wi-fi. Friendly, helpful staff. These are the things that matter to me. I slept very well.

My annual spring pilgrimage from northern NH occurs every April. When heading to my PTSD (post-traumatic snow disorder) destination of Hatteras Island, NC, my halfway point is Dover, DE.
