The staff at the front desk was always accommodating (allowed another family traveling with us to park their 5th wheel camper with big truck in side lot with no questions asked), courteous, and very pleasant. They offered up more than enough information when inquiring about the free casino shuttle and activities at the casino other than the obvious gambling. Free coffee, juice, and cookies (which were very good) seemed to be available all day now, a treat (especially when children in tow). I believe it was coffee only, in morning, and just cookies in afternoon the last couple years. The room was nicely cleaned and ready at 2pm. This hotel has yet to fail to get me into a comfortable room, after a long drive, within minutes of arrival...A+.
Pool area continues to be small (they're not knockin' down walls anytime soon...lol), but certainly usable. Was never crowded this year or years past. I do wish they had better ventilation for the chlorine though as it tends to get irritating after awhile. Next year I may prop door to outside to get some air as some of the children in our group started coughing after an evening swim of only 20 mins. or so. Even the adults were rubbing eyes. Nice sitting area outside of pool is another bonus, as well as comfortable (a couch and chairs with TV) seating in the lobby as well. Nice options to go to besides your room when you get that cramped feeling.
First year using the free wi-fi and it worked well, good signal and no drop-outs. (Room 426). We have never had a room on the front of building, but the ones in back (facing woods) are very quiet. Would seem ones in front wouldn't not be at all bad either as this hotel is off the Dupont Hwy. by a couple of football fields maybe.
All in all, another great, albeit short (one night), stay. The staff at the Hilton Garden Inn, Dover, DE never fails to impress. Always welcomed you back upon your return. So much so that I already booked for next year (July 2014)!!
