Spontaneous trip to Rehoboth for warm fall weekend. Family of two adults, 1child. Splurged on Ocean Front suite after looking at 'Ocean View' suite (a sad distant look angled from side) and truly great view. Suite well laid out as far as having beds in front so sitting room has the windows with ocean/views so kiddos in bed we can enjoy sound of surf once they're in bed. Furnishings dated (think Grandma's matchy-matchy sets with old shag carpeting) but clean and functional. I have to say a big complaint is that this room has a nice balcony that we had hoped to enjoy tonight but there are two very bright lights out there that the hotel controls (to light up hotel I guess so it has a presence) that not only put us on display had we sat out but they are so bright they obscure what could have been a pretty view out to the night-time ocean. It also meant we needed to close curtain as it lots up interior. The front desk people first said they'd be off at 9pm-and at 10pm (tho oddly admitting city requires them out at 8!) promised timer really really would go by 10:30.
In house restaurant was nice for lunch. There's a stash of toys for kids anyone can use. The pool is tiny and kind of creepy looking - hoping our little one doesn't ask to use!
Access to beach is great! Hotel doesn't provide beach towels - or chairs so glad we'd brought our own.
