My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this hotel, and were very pleased. Our first night was Labor Day, so being at the end of the season, I don't think we hit this hotel at a peak time Our stay started out pleasant due to the awesome front desk staff.

We easily reserved our room 1 week ahead. Checkin process was easy, the room was a little muggy initially because the AC was off. Room and bathroom were spacious, plenty of room to relax, catch up on work, and sleep. It was very clean. Definitely walking distance to the beach (less than 1/2 mile), a drugstore, good quality liquor store,... More

The beach is about two blocks away, a short walk. The property is new, clean, and quiet. The décor is modern and functional, but lacks any aesthetics. The pool area is well kept and the pool is clean and clear. The property is kid friendly and the staff very patient and helpful.

Our family of 5 stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at Bethany Beach for two nights. The location was perfect, located a short walk from the access to the beach. We chose the hotel because of this location and it did not disappoint. Our room was large enough for the 5 of us, including our 3 teenage boys. It was... More

We stayed for two nights and would book here again in a heartbeat. Our room (two queen) was bright, airy, clean and roomy. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was very good, beds were comfy. We didn't go in expecting much because beach hotels don't always live up to your hopes, but we were very happy with every... More

Just arrived here at the hotel today. I Have stayed here before, and the hotel is fine for this price range. However, I was charged $50 over the Saturday rate I was originally quoted when I reserved last month. When making reservations, I had the IHG website open with their quoted rates for my Saturday to Wednesday stay, but called... More

This hotel has it all, clean rooms, friendly staff, great (free) breakfast and a terrific location less than a 5 minute walk from the beach. The outdoor pool was awesome (would love it to be open until 10pm) and the beds/pillows were comfy. Best of all when our battery was dead as we were checking out, Fred came out in... More

We are always pleased with Holiday Inn. Everyone we have stayed at has updated been clean. This one however is close to the beach which is a plus. The in room refrigerator and small kitchen sink were also nice.
