From the outside it looks a little older. I can't speak for the sleeping rooms, as we didn't stay overnight. But the upstairs lounge/ballroom was awesome! Ocean view, overlooking the beach. The food was out of this world. The DJ was awesome! I wanted to bring him back to the Midwest with me. I don't know about sleeping, but if... More

We arrived early (10:30 am) and asked if we could park our car so we could explore the area. We were told we could and we were issued a parking pass. We returned to the hotel an hour before check-in and since our room was ready, we were able to check in. This is an older hotel (they have room... More

Our family of 4 (which includes 2 kids) stayed at this hotel because of its beach/boardwalk location. Its brochure boasts renovated rooms, a rooftop restaurant and complimentary continental breakfast. And while the staff was courteous, the building was completely dilapidated. Our $260/night room was far from renovated and not even clean - there were dead insects, dirt, sand, food, etc.... More

Okay...we have stayed here four times for the sand sculpture and sand castle contest. (We missed a year.) It is by far the best location for the contest although it is at the extreme north end of the Rehobeth beach boardwalk. Our biggest complaint is the PTAC unit. (packaged terminal air conditioning unit). They make more efficient units but these... More

My family of six just came back from a 2 night stay and were pleased. Laura at the front desk is always very kind and helpful,as is every staff member we came across. If you're willing to accept some imperfections here and there, this hotel can be a great choice for the budget conscious person who still wants a hotel... More

Might be a great location to the beach and to the boardwalk, but the hotel is in need of serious updating. At $260.00 for one night, I felt it was too pricey for its run down condition. Forget the continental breakfast unless you are okay with pre-packaged pastries etc. first thing I saw when we got off the elevator were... More

We love staying at the Henlopen Hotel and have an absolutely wonderful experience each time we do. Laura is extremely friendly and very accommodating. She goes above and beyond to make our stay as pleasant as possible, which goes along way, especially when you have kids. Hotel is conveniently located right on the boardwalk for quick access to the beach,... More

We stay here off season (Spring and Fall) for a few days. Off season rates are very reasonable. In its prime, the Henlopen was a premiere spot on the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. That touch of class still remains. Half the building has been (unobtrusively) converted to condo residences. Excellent parking is located at lobby level. Laura and staff are wonderful... More

Traveled to Rehoboth Beach for the first time in July, 2015 with my husband, our daughter and her boyfriend. We stayed in a suite with two rooms (King bed, Queen bed and sleeper sofa for the boyfriend :) Hotel was clean, quiet and situated in wonderful location. Our sideview view was awesome.. more than I'd hoped for. The sideview balcony... More

We went to a wedding reception here, and the restaurant/banquet area on the 8th floor (Salero) was AMAZING. Gorgeous view, beautiful space, great food. It is a shame the actual hotel rooms do not even begin to compare. We could not open our hotel room door without the front desk clerk showing us how to "jimmy" it so the key... More
