Went with some girlfriends and this place was perfect. Had a balcony overlooking the ocean and beach. Watched 2 weddings on the beach...pretty cool. Had a nice breakfast included...nothing fancy but perfect for us. We would definitely come back!

We stayed here to attend my niece's beach wedding. It has the feel of an old hotel that is past its heyday. It does feel like it's had a facelift in the last few years, with new tile flooring in the lobby and rooms. It's a low-service hotel but a very good value. We stayed just one week before Memorial...

We have been coming to Rehoboth for over 50 years since I was a small child and now my adult children also make it an annual (or more) event. Those years when we dont have time to rent a condo or house,we always stay at the Henlopen. From year to year,they remember us and remember our room preference on the... More

This is an amazing place. On the beach, one of the best beaches anywhere, withing a short walk into town where everything you could want is for a vacation. Easy parking and excellent location for anyone at the beach.

I must say that we were a bit hesitant about going to this hotel after reading the reviews here but it exceeded my expectations by far. The hotel is really on the beach and if you have the chance book a room with ocean view. It is just simply the best. If you like new decor and high end furnishings... More

The location of this property could not be more ideal. My husband and I stayed here one night for a wedding reception in the hotel restaurant. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We, luckily, had an oceanfront room, which was fantastic. The room had all the necessities, including two showers, which was a surprise. There was a frig and... More

We attended a wedding here and reserved a room for 1 night. Check-in was easy and pleasant. The usual room rate is 179. + tax,but our rate was reduced to 149.+ tax(not ocean front)for the wedding party. This property is on prime,beachfront real estate. That's the only reason to stay here. Except for the lobby,which was nicely decorated,the rooms we... More

We stayed one night in the off season but it was race weekend in Dover and there were many wedding going on- the place was hopping! The place was nice. Exactly what can be expected of older beachfront hotel. Room was perfect for 2 adults. Nice balcony with an ocean view. Perfect for our anniversary weekend!

We stayed a couple of nights here late in the season and found it a bit disappointing for the price. The room was nice and clean, but the TV was tiny. The AC was so loud that you could not listen to the TV when it was on. And we could hear the neighbors talking. The breakfast was minimal at... More
