This is definitely a 2.5 star motel (not a hotel). The positives: (1) close to a relative's home (and why we stayed there), (2) clean room, (3) comfortable beds, (4) lady who checked us in accommodated my stupidity when I realized they accepted AAA discounts which I hadn't asked for when I first reserved but asked for it when I...

It's all about perspective. I stay at a lot of high end hotels for work and when my family takes vacations, we normally go for the mid-higher end chain hotels. I stay here for two nights recently for a baseball tournament. I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews but was pleasantly surprised with a couple of... More

Perfect for our over night stay prior to catching the early morning ferry to Cape May - late night customer service was excellent. Pass on breakfast though and get it somewhere else (it was too much to go to the supermarket next door, when they'd run out of butter, and get some more!) Great location, comfortable room, and easy to... More

I do not agree with some of the negative comments. Myself and several other golfers have had the pleasure of staying here several times over the past few years. Everyone is in agreement that this is the place to stay for our annual golf trip. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. But I would be remiss... More

Went to visit a friend two days ago, for the Softball League, with my sister. We had a shameful situation. They didn't let us be with her in the room for a while, called the police and told us we couldn't go back to the hotel cause there are girls from differents countries. Very dissapointed. We didn't know that they... More

Great spot, close enough to Rehoboth beach, outlet shopping, etc. but just far enough away for some peace and quiet too. Staff were courteous and helpful. Room had everything you needed, pool was nice. This is an older hotel, but is kept in good shape.

Stayed here with our baseball families: Pros: family fun environment, nice pool area to hang out, close to Sports at the Beach and stores/food Cons: Very old motel, mediocre accommodations, down to basics (no blow dryer, phone or iron in room) TV from 1980's lol

We were down in Sussex for a softball tournament and Atlantic Inn was the perfect spot to go between Berlin, MD and Roxana DE, plenty of stores around for grocery shopping and other necessities and it was only like a half hour drive to Rehoboth.
