I wish I took a picture, but I didn't have much time, so I'm just going to explain what I experienced last night. I went down to the hotel with international students who just arrived in the country and had nowhere to stay. When we called the hotel, we were quoted $149/nt (I want to mention here, that it was...

We stayed for one night at this hotel. It was extremely clean and nicely decorated. Our room was spacious, with a comfortable bed. While it is not on the beach, it is about a 2-block walk from the boardwalk, where there is beach access. It is within easy walking distance to restaurants, stores, etc. The free breakfast was well-stocked and... More

From the outside the hotel appears to be recently built or refurbished, which was a plus. There was enough parking for the hotel guests it seemed. After parking and entering the hotel, my sweetheart and I were warmly welcomed at the front desk. The check-in process was painless and upon entering our room there was no damp smell and the...

My boyfriend and I took an overnight in Bethany Beach over Memorial Day weekend. Had previously enjoyed stay at Holiday Inn Express in Rehoboth but it was full. The Bethany Beach Express was a very short walk to the beach and right next to Sea Colony complex. The room was great, updated bathrooms and none of the damp smell that... More

If you want a nice clean hotel within walking distance to the beach this is the one. The room was very clean and modern. A nice place to come back to. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Will stay there again!

This is a standard HIE. Very clean, reception is welcoming, breakfast is typical free hotel breakfast, not many amenities/extras. The location is solid, as it's right across from the beach and within walking distance to everything. Solid value.

this HIE is probably the cleanest and nicest place in bethany beach (until perhaps the new hotel opens directly on the boardwalk). it's a little bit of a walk to get to the boardwalk, especially if you have little ones and beach stuff to lug around. it's not really close enough to head back to for any reason during the...

Stopped at the Holdiay Inn Bethany for one night on our way to Ocean City. My wife and Daughter were running in the Bunny Palooza 5K. It was convenient, clean and the staff were very pleasant. Mrs. Felicia was exceptional in the breakfast area. She was working hard to make sure all the food was available and tables were clean.... More

I been a PC member for 30 years and do over 150 nights a year the IHG hotels. This hotel is walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The mattresses were saggy and appeared to be old.

We stayed at this hotel late September early October and the service by the staff was excellent!The hotel manager Fred Thompson was very friendly and gave top service because we were from the same area in Ontario that we were.The friendly efficient service was greatly appreciated and we highly recommend this hotel to Canadian travellers.
