I stayed there in the beginning of May 2017. Upon arrival the hotel clerk gave me a small gift just to say "Thank You" for choosing us. The hotel was clean, the breakfast was good and plentiful. The noise level was decent. The only thing I would say that I didn't like is the cleaning crew. They make a lot...

Obviously a five-star rating does not mean this is a five-star hotel, it doesn't pretend to be in any way shape or form. However, I gave it a 5-star rating because, in its category of roadside hotels, this one is by far the best we have ever stayed in. We take an annual road trip that necessitates an overnight stay...

We have visited this hotel twice in the last while and both times have been great. The front desk staff have been extremely nice and helpful both times we have been. My daughter uses the pool and it has been well kept both times as well. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The hotel is very...

Stayed 3 nights while visiting great grand children. Quiet, clean and handy to the AF base. Breakfast was adequate and good as far as motels go. Would highly recommend. Restaurants are nearby with many choices available to satisfy most needs.

Our visit was off to a problematic start from the moment we arrived. Our reservation was booked through Travelocity for a king non-smoking room. The clerk said it was processed as a queen because at the time they got the reservation they were already out of king rooms. It took some complaining on my part to finally get a king...

Stayed for 2 nights (weekend) in August. Very quiet, set back from road, plenty of parking. Pool was very nice. Exercise room was available. Had a room with a kitchen suite. Staff friendly. Best part, breakfast available included waffles or choice of cold cereals or eggs.

Booked one night here based on previous reviews. We were not disappointed. From check-in through breakfast the staff was delightful. The lady who checked us in was the same lady maintaining the breakfast buffet. She was always smiling and singing. Breakfast was your standard hotel breakfast, the coffee was hot and tasty. Rooms were clean and spacious. Our room came...

Every year we "layover" in Dover to beat the "beach traffic" on our way to Ocean City, MD. So we've stayed at a few different establishments in the area.
