Verified Reviews of Best Western Galaxy Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nasty place to stay."
Overall Score1.0/ 5
Not sanitary at all. Canceled my reservation. Stay away. Stained sheets. Dirty floors. Hallways wreaked of cigarettes and funk. I can not believe a hotel could look like this.

"Good"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Good for the price we had no problems. The hallways are cold and the entrance on the side smells like cigarette into the halls some. Overall I'd have no problem staying there again the rooms are clean and the breakfast was decent.

"Made My Weekend Stay a Delight"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I came down to stay for the Country Junction Festival and had the best weekend of the summer! Very clean and comfortable. The front desk clerks were very sociable, outgoing, and helpful for all our needs. Thank you for everything. I would recommend it and certainly would stay again as it is only a short ride to the beach.

"Affordable Clean Comfortable Charming Room, Accommodating Courteous Efficient Professional Staff."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Check in shortly after three PM on 7/19/14 at the Best Western Galaxy Inn Dover, DE was a very relaxed, pleasant and satisfying experience. The desk clerk was very courteous and executed the check in most professionally. Requesting a change of rooms before checking into the assigned room later that night, the clerk, friendly and welcoming was accommodating as she reassigned an available room. The room was in perfect order and the standard of cleanliness was as good as it gets. Kudos to a hard working house cleaning,laundry and management staff in perfect harmony. I've experienced stays in four and five star hotels in the US, the Caribbean, Mexico, Europe and Asia and I would submit that the staff and management team at the Best Western Galaxy Inn for its size and location were as competent and aware of the needs of their hotel guests. My short stay merits a superior rating.
