Unless you can't find anything else on the Board/Rehoboth, you might want to skip this hotel. I check in for a night and though the hotel was near empty they wouldn't give us a room with an ocean view, so we had to settle for a side view. The hotel looks like a nightscape out of a King oven. Dark... More

I stayed at the Henlopen a few weeks ago and initially walking to the building left me feeling unsure what to expect- it was right on the water which was exciting but looked like a run down building literally falling apart! There were dangling pieces of siding up top of the roof that looked like they would fall any minute.... More

We wanted a quiet, restful day at the beach away from all the turmoil of our busy lives. We had an ocean front room on the 5th floor which was perfect. The room was clean and had all the things we needed - microwave, refrig, coffee pot, hair dryer and the bathroom had sufficient towels, soap and shampoo. This was... More

In the real world, for what real people can pay, there are different standards at the beach. Location looms even larger, and you put up with dated finishes and fixtures. Demand is high in season, or even near season, and you take what you can get. By those standards, the Henlopen is a pretty good choice. The location is deceptively... More

The pros to the Henlopen Hotel: They literally had the only room left on or near the boardwalk this past Saturday via a travel site, and we are glad they still had availability. Parking is convenient. Beach access couldn't be any easier, and the front desk staff was pleasant. The cons: they hand out metal keys (no pass card type... More

The Henlopen Hotel in Rehoboth is not a luxury hotel. The rooms are large, they have a fridge and a microwave oven, so they are convenient for families or people who do not wish to eat all their meals at a restaurant. All the staff including Steve, the General Manager, Laura (senior staff at the Reception) are very friendly and... More

I found this property online at the last minute. We decided we wanted to visit Rehoboth on a busy holiday weekend and chose the Henlopen. It has very nice views of the beach and I enjoyed how close it was to everything. The parking was great. The breakfast was ok and catered more to children than adults. It would be... More

The location was ideal, the view was spectacular. The hotel was nice! Not overly exciting but did the job! The workers at the front desk were very accommodating and friendly. I would I would recommend this is a convenient place to stay with a great view.

The hotel is located at the end of the board walk in Rehoboth Beach. It was a very quiet location and provided easy access to most of the downtown area. We had a two room suite, the rooms were a bit dated but spacious. The breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast. I would stay there for a night or two... More

For a reasonable price we stayed at a clean beachfront hotel in Rehoboth. Very nice front desk personnel, easy and free self parking and wifi. Breakfast was low end in a dingy room without windows. The rating would have been a bit better had the ancient A/C not not gone off and on all night and made it difficult to... More
