This place was located in a very quiet, less busy area but still on Costal Highway. Inn was ok. Nothing great but nothing horrible either. Got to check in early which was perfect. Only had one chair on balcony so only one person could enjoy the view at a time. Pool looked nice even though we never used it. Beach... More

I was looking for a cheap, spontaneous beach vacation with my son and booked this place based on the great reviews. Got a great deal at $79 a night the week before Labor Day - so a bit leery of what we'd get. And was fabulously surprised! The owners and housekeeping were warm and friendly. The place is older but... More

Upon arrival we were a little worried that the hotel was a little bit too outdated but to our surprise we ended up having a fantastic trip! You can tell the new owners are working to update the hotel. Tho the rooms may be a little outdated they do an amazingly well job at cleaning and keeping everything as guest... More

Spent two nights at the Seaside Inn the end of August. We loved the close proximity to the beach. No busy roads to cross! You can tell that the owner is in the process of upgrading the hotel, but our room definitely needed new carpet! The room seemed clean, with working AC, microwave and mini-frig. Having stayed in other hotels... More

There were no frills, other than a swim pool, which I didn't use. While I didn't give the room the Hotel Impossible onceover, it seemed basically clean, the air conditioning worked, there were no "off" smells, the small fridge worked to cool off my ice chest's blue ice, and I didn't try the small microwave. Bed was comfortable. There is... More

Spent a long weekend in Fenwick Island, and this was a perfect place to stay. Just 1 block up from the beach. The owners just took over the property and has made some nice improvements. The rooms were clean and the maid service was very good. This is a typical beach motel, nothing fancy, but nice and clean and the... More

Stayed three nights and couldn't be happier. Quiet, newly painted, nice pool and great staff . Coffee always available in lobby, microwave and fridge in room. Had third floor room facing ocean and could see the water one block away . Convenient to good restaurants. So much nicer than ocean city . One block to spacious beach. No crowds!'

My wife & I stayed two nights on a beach getaway. Owner greeted us at 10:45, and said a room was already available, fours hours before check-in. Location just 5- minute walk to great,uncrowded beach. Fenwick Beach State Beach only a few minutes drive. Great food and shops within walking distance (Discovery shipwreck was great). Warrens across the street and... More

We stayed here last year and were very pleased so we decided to try it again this July. Good decision! Management had given the property a facelift - new paint, new carpets did wonders for this hotel. Front desk staff very cordial, always helpful and obviously proud of their work. This no-frills, inexpensive hotel is close to the quiet but... More
