We have been staying at the Henolpen every year for 6 years, so obviously we really like it. The comments about the breakfast are all true. The choices are all really unhealthy. That said, there is no additional charge for this breakfast, so why complain. If you do not like it, there are plenty of close by places for you... More

We stayed here in June and returned for a few days a week ago. The first time we arrived we had no reservations and was happily greeted by Jennifer. We had a great room and she and the other staff were great that week. She gave us a lot of good recommendations. When we returned last week we were thrilled... More

Spacious rooms, friendly front desk, excellent location, breakfast very minimal. I do recommend this hotel though. Cleanliness was satisfactory. You can walk just down the boardwalk to the "Jolly Trolly" which will take you to lots of places and restaurants and to Dewey Beach for only a dollar or two.

I always research hotels online and read reviews before I book anything. I even Google Earth locations to make sure it's exactly where I want to stay. I found most of the reviews for the Henlopen Hotel were spot on. The hotel is located just a little further up on the boardwalk away from all the other hotels, so it's... More

The location is perfect and really couldn't get any better. You are steps from the beach, boardwalk, shopping and dining. The property itself is OK. It's older and a little dingy but our room was very clean and comfortable. It's nothing spectacular by any stretch but it's what I expected for a weekend at the beach. The breakfast area however...

We stayed on the 5th floor in an oceanfront room. It was great! The hotel is on the north end of the boardwalk away from the crowds and arcades so it's perfect for sitting on the balcony enjoying a lovely ocean view. We arrived earlier in the day but were able to check in and use the hotel changing rooms... More

Nice Hotel / Condo right on the Northern End of the Boardwalk away from the Hustle and Bustle of the Boardwalk Arcades etc. It has Ocean Views and best of all Parking for the Hotel Guests which I think is the biggest problems with Rehoboth. You can walk right out of the hotel and you are on the boardwalk and... More

We had an ocean view room which was very comfortable. The hotel is right on the beach, but far enough away from the arcades so it’s still quiet enough to be enjoyed by people born before 1990. The staff was friendly and helpful. Parking is free. It only had one problem: Food. The continental breakfast was the worst breakfast that... More

Two of my good friends and I decided to take a short getaway from NYC and DC respectively to Rehoboth for some fun in the sun! We had one basic requirement and that was to be able to park the car and not need it until we left. That's what this place allowed us to do easily. As others have... More

If you come here expecting opulence, you'll be disappointed. Instead, expect a place close to the beach and be happy. Yes the sheets and towels are reminiscent of sandpaper, but just think, you're skipping the exfoliating step to keep your tan nice. There's noting luxurious about this place, but it's Rehobeth, not Rome. If you're willing to sit back, relax,... More
