We were on our way home from North Myrtle Beach, SC and decided to return home via the coastline, do the tourist thing all the way home. We got to Ocean City, MD and we were exhausted. OC was jam packed. We could not find a hotel vacancy anywhere. We finally asked one of the front desk clerks, where she... More

One of the few motels that takes pets, the motel is what you pay for. It's not fancy, but basic enough for needs. Rick, the manager is a really nice guy and really helpful if you need anything. I think a lot of people were ripping on the place. Yes, it is a little outdated, but we were fine and... More

We stayed here two nights in May 2014. It was clean enough for us and the people were nice. We would be happy to stay there again on our next visit to the beach. They are close to Lewes and the beach there.

We were driving home on a Monday and, as we passed the Red Mill Inn around 11:30am and the weather had turned really great, decided to stay over to visit Cape Henlopen if there was a room ready. The owner put us in a small room which was made up. That night my wife discovered gum on the underside of... More

Last minite hotel booking while on the road. Upon checkin the room was moldy, old and had dead flies in the room. We did get moved to another room which was just as bad. The towel rack was hanging off the wall and the bathrom door had a major sized hole. The beds did not look refreshed with clean linens.... More

We only stayed one night,a spur of the moment trip. The price was cheap enough, and the young man at check in was nice as well. The room had a musty smell, the towel rack and toilet paper holder were missing and there just two hand towels. We spent the first ten minutes killing flies. Finally, I'm not sure my... More

I've seen worse and also have seen a lot better. Overall, pretty clean. Bedding yellowed and warn with holes. No blanket other than bedspread. Old-fashioned tube tv. Free wifi in room, but none of them were dependable. Didn't use pool, but it didn't look bad. Very close to Lewes public beach and Cape Henlopen and you miss all the horrible... More

Was looking for cheapish hotel near Lewes area for one night and ended up stayed here after seeing it from the road. Seemed nice from outside - rate was $125 - tiny outdoor pool (did not swim). No cover for ice bucket - community ice maker top was open and exposed - had to scoop ice from the top. In... More

Im definately one who does not like nasty rooms, I can handle basic when necessary and this is just that. Mustiness goes away with a little AC and its a couple miles off beaten path so a lot cheaper if your looking for weekend stay to do a DE state park. Not much more than camping at Cape Henelopen and... More
