I've stayed at this property a number of times, as it offers great access to local attractions. It's an older single-story property, and the grounds are definitely showing signs of age. But the housekeeping staff does a good job, the beds are comfortable, and the "Business-class " room I had had a coffee table and sofa facing the flat-screen tv, which made it a bit more like home. I have always had a nice, clean room, a decent-sized desk with a desk lamp with AC plug for easy use of electronics, and a comfortable bed.
You would think, however, that the "business class" room would have decent wi-fi. It does not. There are a number of wireless nodes in the facility, but none provided Internet access. After talking with the front desk, I realized it was clearly a local network configuration issue, so I didn't bother calling 800 tech support. I just went up to the front desk and asked permission to hang out in the breakfast room when it wasn't open. There, the signal was strong. Still, the hotel needs to get this squared away, and the sooner the better.
The breakfast room was large and sunny, by the standards of this star level, and it had standard fare: two brands of cereal, hot waffles, juice, coffee.
The hotel is right on busy, busy Rt. 13 in Dover, in the midst of a commercial strip dominated by small businesses just north of the junction with Del 1, which takes vacationers to the northern beaches: Rehoboth is 50 minutes away; Broadkill Beach quite a bit closer, though I didn't visit. Dover Downs is just a few blocks away, and there are quite a few restaurants and shopping nearby, particularly if you head south on Rt. 13 a few blocks. If you are a birdwatcher or nature enthusiast, Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, Slaughter Beach, Prime Hook, and Broadkill Beach are within 20 minutes' drive.
