Great service!!! Get what you pay for! Free Wi-Fi in hotel full kitchen and porch in every room!! Right in the center of Dover, on the beach. Amazing location! Good for Jewish Rabbi's spreading the word that the Lubavitcher Rebbe is the Messiah and alive forever!!!

Will definitely return to and recommend this almost 'budget' hotel. The room I had was spacious and comfortable and though fixtures and decor were basic (see pics) it came with microwave, fridge and balcony (upper floor). Hotel was clean and tidy and was very close to the hub of St Lawrence Gap (10-15 mins walking) and Dover Beach. Staff was...

The front desk was very friendly and accommodating (even when we asked for an extra night stay). The room was perfect for two people with all the amenities including microwave, cable TV, refrigerator and a nice balcony although the bed was...

Only patronise if on a tight budget. The positives are on a tight budget it's really close to the beach, activities and the bliss cafe where you can purchase a delicious breakfast every morning. There is a fridge that works The downsides are the rooms at every basic and minimal. The view is really bad from the balcony. It doesn't...

While trying to find a unique place for a weekend get-away I chose Melbourne Inn because it was recommended by a friend that stayed there years ago. I was sorely disappointed. The room was small and the bathroom consisted of only a bath/shower and Toilet to wash your hand u had to come out and use the sink outside the...
