Last minute travel trip to Delaware for an interview and the staff were very accommodating, pleasant & helpful to me. The room was very comfortable, affordable, convenient to beach, dining, local shopping and will be back soon.

My husband and myself have been to the Fenwick Islander twice this year. The Islander is a small motel made up of "no frills" rooms. It's draw is the simplicity, the cleanliness, the canal view, proximity to the beach, the eateries and shopping nearby, the price and of course the staff. This week we needed to get away for a...

every other place is booked and you have NO intention of watching TV or getting a good night's sleep, this is your place! We stayed here over the weekend and I thank God it wasn't for longer. Pros: It has air conditioning and indoor plumbing. Cons: There was a "kitchenette", with a mini fridge and microwave. There was no coffeemaker.... More

My teenage daughter and I came to OC for a last hoorah at the beach before school. We had no reservations for Saturday night. After calling hotels down Coastal from Rehobeth to OC, everything was 200+. The Fenwick was under 200 leaving us extremely skeptical. We were thrilled to find a very clean room with towels and sheets that smelled... More

Considering every place that I wanted for a last minute family vacation in an ocean city condo was booked, this was a nice place to "settle". Very nice for a motel. Roomy, clean, quiet, comfortable beds, one block walk to beach. Although there was no stove, the kitchenette was useful since we know how to cook meals in the microwave... More

This is the first time we stayed in a motel at the beach and my sister had a house nearby so I didn't need to rely on the small "kitchen" area for anything more then toast and coffee. I found the motel very nice the room was spacious enough for the three of us and we enjoyed the balcony every... More

It is an older building but it looks as though they just remodeled it, everything was great and clean. We got there early and couldn't check in right away but they let us park there and use the bathroom at the pool to change and we walked across the street and to the beach not a far walk at all....

My daughters and I have stayed here about 7-8 times since they were youngsters. The staff is always friendly and courteous. Rooms are clean, pool is nice, only 1 block to the beach. Looks like everything got a fresh coat of paint this year. We'll definitely be back.
