What a great location!!!!
My husband and I had a get away for a few days and loved staying at this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised of its location--it was located at the quite end of the boardwalk and only steps away from the beach. The proximity to the beach and boardwalk and its activities—you just can’t beat it.
We had a great view of the ocean from our room. We had a double queen suite—enormously large room with a sitting area (couch, end tables, TV, etc.), and wet bar area with granite counters with two chairs at the bar, with sink (although the sink’s faucet was not installed correctly—it does not really stick out over the sink, so water does go all over the counter when you turn the faucet on), refrigerator, lots of cabinet space, microwave, and coffee maker. The bathroom was quite large: double sinks, granite tops, and a very large and deep tub. We were again, pleasantly surprised that we had two balconies with chairs and tables…making the whole ocean view seen amazing.
The Henlopen Hotel allows for one parking space per reservation in their underground secure parking garage. If you ventured out driving, you knew you would have a parking space when you returned from your outing which was a plus.
There’s a free continental breakfast each morning from 0700 – 1100am. The breakfast consisted of cereal, bagels, muffins/pastries, juice, coffee, and milk; however, no fruit which would be great to have. The breakfast does get you going in the morning and remember, it’s free.
The hotel is a site for weddings, anniversaries, and special events. Their eighth floor is only used for the special events. While there, a beach wedding was held, very romantic with the waves in the background and great pictures for the wedding couple’s albums. With the proximity to the beach, this does allow for this type of venue.
The boardwalk and all its restaurants and activities are within walking distance. The shopping area of Rehoboth Beach is lined with shops and eateries. Nightlife is abundant-take your pick of where to go. Rehoboth Beach is within driving distance to Lewes, Dewey Beach, and wineries for tours and you can actually drive to Ocean City, Maryland for the day for an adventure.
The staff was quite friendly, helpful, and courteous. They allowed us an early check in which gave us more time on the beach!!!!
We would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends. We will definitely stay here again; in fact, we made future reservations while checking out of this stay.
Get a room at least on the 6th floor for a great view.
Pillows are hard; bring your own.
