First, I was foiled by priceline.com. I meant to book The Admiral on Baltimore in Rehoboth. Traveled to Rehoboth only to find that I didn't have a room there. Walking in the room I was smacked in the face with a waft of mildewed air. I was scared to take my shoes off not knowing what might be on the... More

Got there and it didn't even take me two minutes to hate the staff. The "hallways" getting to the rooms were horrible and covered with cigarette buds and rust from the rusty leaking Air Conditioners. Got into the room and it smelled like vomit and there were holes everywhere in the room (ceiling, floor, walls, etc). The beds were disguising... More

After last minute booking, we looked at photos and comments made on here about the admiral and we're very leary of what we did and what to expect. We showed up earlier than our check in time and received our parking pass with no problems. The staff was very nice. When we seen our room we were very satisfied. Not... More

Stayed here for 2 days. Smallest bathroom I've ever seen. Moldy shower and tub, no counter. Bed springs sticking out, flat pillows. No WiFi. Water in sink wasn't hot. Dishes had lime and mold. Stove was FILTHY. Housekeeping entered without permission twice, were rude and got in my face. $300 was way too much for this terrible experience. Would have... More

We stayed 2 nights and had no issues. Staff at front desk were always nice and friendly. Will defiantly stay again. Perfect location to the board walk and stores. The front porch is great for evening to relax.

Stayed here for 3 nights. It wasn't great and it wasn't awful. You can't beat the price as far as location and the fact that they have a pool. The cleanliness of the place was however much poorer then I expected.
