Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Holiday Inn Dover Downtown

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Lovely full service hotel "
Overall Score3.5/ 5
The Holiday Inn Dover is a full service hotel located off main road next to a Kmart store. Upon entering noted the lobby is a little small, does have a sitting area, lounge/restaurant to the right and desk to the left. Hotel looks newly renovated and found in 2009 had a full overhaul from a Howard Johnson. The lobby restaurant services breakfast daily and dinner every night except for Sunday. Once you go past the front desk towards the elevators is the meeting space at 2400 square feet, board room with the entrance inside the business center. The hotel does offers over 25 pages of fantastic catering menus to choose from for your event! Once on-site you can enjoy an outdoor pool, laundry facilities, dry cleaning services (sent off property), room service, business and small fitness center, comp WIFI, local and 800 calls and 3-pet friendly rooms. There are 3 exterior entrances located around the building with key card access only to help with the longer hallways. Guest room amenities include the soft/firm pillows, one cup coffee makers, microwaves and refrigerators available upon request. This hotel is also a stop for the Dover Downs Casino shuttle on the weekends beginning at 4:00pm. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler whether a business meeting or any leisure group especially family reunions, weddings or sports teams.

Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Dover Downtown

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Typical Benefits are Removed!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Those items which are typically part of hotel stays are stripped when obtaining group packaging. No continental breakfast We had to “beg” for meeting room space We had to “beg” for pool use Restaurant manager was difficult Would not recommend this particular Holiday inn for personal or group use.

25-Jun-2018 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Jun 22 to Sun Jun 24 2018 at a $149.00 group rate.
Response from Management on 05-Jul-2018:
Good Afternoon,I am sorry your expectations were not met during your stay. It is not in our favor to “strip” guests of any hotel requests. However, we are a full service hotel with a full service restaurant/bar on property and breakfast is not included in the rate. Group breakfasts are handled upon request for an extra fee depending on the type of breakfast requested. However, per your contract, breakfast was not discussed at the time of booking. What was discussed, was a possible pizza block party during your stay, which on the day of, we offered meeting space at no cost. Any discrepancies you may have had with our kitchen manager is unfortunate, as that position has yet to be filled. Lastly, our pool is naturally open for all guests from 8 AM to 8PM Monday-Sunday where normal hotel pools are open from 12pm-8pm. If you care to discuss further, feel free to give me a call directly in the Sales Department. Otherwise, thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Dover Downtown, a hotel that partners with all tournament housing for sporting hotel accommodations. Best Wishes,Nicole AtayiSales Manager
"Need Inside Pool!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Everything was good for the price we paid for rooms should have included continental breakfast. Hotel was clean and a healthy environment.

Response from Management on 10-Apr-2018:
Thank you for your feedback Consuelo.I am glad you enjoyed your stay during your Dover Downs Dash. With Holiday Inn being a full service hotel, we typically do not include breakfast in room rates. However, when you return to the Dover area, I would love to work with you to see what you had in mind for breakfast and how we could accommodate that in your rate. It was a pleasure working with you, and we hope to see you for your next group trip. Best Wishes,Nicole AtayiSales Manager
