Stayed at the henlopen hotel for our wedding. The staff is very accommodating. Laura was awesome! She confirmed the rooms for everyone in our group and made sure we had a room facing the ocean! The room was clean and had the most amazing view. It was wonderful falling asleep to the sound of the ocean! We'll be back next... More

Know what you are getting, and you will really enjoy the Henlopen Hotel. Get a room facing the ocean, and plan on a bottle of wine on your balcony listening to the ocean. Not fancy, and out of the 1970's, but clean. Be aware there may be an invasion of college kids from Maryland and Delaware on summer week-ends, but... More

This was a good find for an offseason beach getaway. We stayed on fifth floor, in an ocean front room. King bed, small fridge and microwave. Comfortable room, though bed not so great for my back. Nice balcony, and at the north end of the boardwalk, so pretty quiet. We could hear the ocean, even with the slider closed, which... More

As others have stated, this is not a 5 star hotel. But the price and location can't be beat. The rooms are nice, small but nice. I can see how a family might find these rooms too small but for a couple, the rooms are fine, and view of the ocean is great. The rooms are clean and functional. The... More

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
