The Holiday Inn Express has a lot to offer for families traveling to Bethany Beach. Great Location - a short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. Comfortable Room - the rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable - we all sleep well. Nice Breakfast - nothing fancy - breads, cereals, fruit, eggs, turkey sausage, biscuits and gravy, coffee,... More

This hotel was clean, comfortable, and well run. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in, on the first floor, was large, with a decent bathroom, and good, almost too good, air conditioning. It had a refrigerator & microwave, along with a coffee maker. My husband had the only complaint and that was that we couldn't open... More

Nested across the street from the Sea Colony Resort- The Holiday Inn Express at Bethany Beach is a great family friendly hotel that includes complimentary parking and breakfast items at a decent price!

Efficient check-in at front desk, clean and comfortable room, our 4th floor room was very quiet, and in room cable TV got Nats game! Plenty of parking and excellent location close to town. Reasonable price and value.

We stayed here for a long weekend at the end of July. Got a discount through AAA, rates were pricey but standard for the season and area. From reading other reviews, I expected that this was a well-managed hotel and was not disappointed. The room was very clean, had no issues. Everything was modern and well-maintained. The hotel had a... More

We came to visit with family and were there 4 nights. It is an older hotel with inexpensive decor and basically no frills. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was clean with very comfortable beds,pillows and linen. Breakfast is included. It is about 2 blocks from the beach and has an adequate pool, although... More

Thank you, Frances B, for reviewing your most recent stay with us on TripAdvisor. We value your comments and feedback! I will more actively engage our maintenance team with regards to pool cleanliness supervision. Since many families like to hit the pool after the beach, and don't shower off beforehand, we often find ourselves vacuuming out sand several more times... More

Overall, the hotel property is nice. The rooms are recently remodeled and the hotel is comfortable. We only stayed for 2 nights as a quick getaway, which was enough. Any longer than that, and the stay would not be comfortable. The pool was very dirty and the pumps not running when we visited. It was like swimming in a pond.... More

We stayed over the 4th of July and were on a first floor room. It was a handicapped room which was not necessary for us. The room was clean however, since the hotel was built on a swamp, the room was very damp. We even had to turn on the heat to dry out the room. Imagine the heat on... More
