We stayed at this property over the Fourth of July. The recently renovated rooms are of average size and our room included two beds, an office chair, desk, small armchair, mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The bathroom was clean, but the installed clothesline over the tub was broken which made drying our bathing suits difficult. The included breakfast was... More

We liked this hotel except it's behind the huge, crowded Sea Colony compound. It's a good 10+ minute hike to a crowded beach. Next time we stay there, we'll drive a few minutes north to the state park beach that's a lot less crowded and has bathrooms.

Thank you for the high rating of our hotel. We are sorry you experienced challenges with the beach access. We are indeed located 2 blocks from the beach and July is our busiest month. As you already pointed out, the Sate Parks located within a few miles of Bethany Beach offer a great alternative for those quests looking to avoid... More

We stayed here in early spring (I reviewed it then as well) and came back because it was so great! Now that summer is here it's location is perfect. Less than a five minute to the beach and you don't have to carry around quarters to feed the meters. The staff is friendly and helpful and the quality and variety... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a wedding in June 2014. I was hesitant to stay there because the wedding party changed their block rooms from this hotel to another due to the Holiday Inn not honoring their blocked prices. I reserved it before this drama occurred and was unable to get a refund so... More

We decided to go to the beach at the last minute to celebrate my husband's birthday, and were hoping to go back to Rehoboth Beach. Most all the hotels in Rehoboth required 2 night minimum stays, and we could only be gone for one night. There was one room left at the Holiday Inn at Bethany Beach, which allowed a... More

This hotel is your standard Holiday Inn centrally located and affordable. Complimentary breakfast...not gourmet but something to fill your tummy...and the kids will be happy. Free parking and close to the beach....Although a block away ...you cannot cut through the parallel resort....so making a left and right ...you do have to go out of your way a couple blocks but...

Great hotel and very helpful staff! Hotel is in a great location and the walk to the beach and trolley stop are not a far walk(10 min). It was easy for 5 kids(ages 2-8) and 4 adults to do. We loved having the free breakfast every morning. We also had a more complicated reservation and the front desk was very... More

Worst hotel experience of my life! A miscommunication on their part resulted in me and boyfriend feeling humiliated. Fred was the front end manager and his pompous attitude really put me off. Of course reported this to management immediately and they simply apologized for the "miscommunication". (Thanks) It was a crap way to start our mini vacay. We love Bethany... More

Deal NL, We apologize again for not efficiently communicating the hotel procedure related to guaranteeing payment at the time of check in and for the inconvenience this has created for you. We are sorry to hear you will not be returning but I was glad to have had the opportunity to discuss this again with you prior to your departure... More

Great location- 5 minute walk to the beach. Hotel staff was very nice and they had a room for us even though we arrived at 10:30am. Nice breakfast for a free breakfast, staff worked very hard to keep things stocked. The room had a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.

Nice, clean place. Friendly staff. A lot quieter then Ocean City, which was perfect for us. There is a crab shack, liquor store, Arby's, and Walgreens right there. Perfect! Oh, and the breakfast is really good.
