First, let me start by saying that my wife and I have stayed at the Fenwick Islander many times throughout the past years, often several times per year. We've loved it and considered it a great value (considering proximity to the beach and other motels in the area). The staff is and always has been wonderful - very welcoming, kind,... More

this was our 3rd visit to the Fenwick Islander Motel in Delaware. Clean, friendly service. No coffee pot in room, but they have it in the lobby. King size bed, microwave, sink, refrigerator with small freezer compartment included. The pool is lovely and clear. The staff was great; knowledgeable about the area etc.we will certainly stay there again as we... More

I stayed here with two small children around Labor Day. The front desk staff was very nice and you can't beat the proximity to the beach...but DIRTY!! our room was full of mold! Mold on the drapes,in the shower,on the mini fridge...everywhere. I even found half eaten crackers on the floor(that didnt belong to us)- if things like this matter... More

The location was perfect and the cost affordable even on a busy Labor Day weekend. Beds ok. Inexpensive looking toiletries but they worked. Parking was difficult when we got home around 11 pm so I would suggest you either keep your car parked or be sure to come back early if you want to have a parking place at the... More

My boys and I stayed here for the night this past August. The motel was very clean and the staff was friendly. We ordered some pizzas from a local pizza place and sat by the pool at the nice tables they have set up and enjoyed dinner outside. The motel is close to everything. Will stay again!

I booked 2 nights midweek. I've been going to Ocean City for over 50 years, and this is the second time I've stayed on Fenwick Island. I love the atmosphere; very quiet and friendly for all ages as opposed to the frenetic atmosphere of OC. I would definately chose Fenwick Islander over the other bay-side hotel I stayed in last...

We didn't expect to stay the night in Fenwick Island, but were tired of driving and thought the town looked cute... we saw a vacancy sign and a pool with a family laughing and enjoying themselves- it looked quant and friendly. We were pulling a trailer behind our car, so ease of getting in and out, and the security of... More

The service was good: for the most part the staff was great. Location: right across the highway from the beach, therefore good. Rooms were somewhat clean, and kind of small. A little mold in the bathroom. But the smell of the room was horrible- musty and moldy. The majority of our family slept alright. For us it was not a... More

Nothing fancy but very clean. Friendly staff, and very convenient location. Just a minute walk from the beach. I would recommend it to the families who would like to stay away from wild party atmosphere of ocean city. We never had to complain about noise or anything. No elevator though, but talking to one of the staffs I found out... More

We recently stayed at the Fenwick Islander Motel and read the previous reviews on TripAdvisor before booking. This was a last-minute trip, so our options were somewhat limited, especially since we weren't booking an entire week. We were grateful to find a few nights available near the beach here. Overall, the Islander is a basic motel - no extras, no... More
