“Nice hotel in good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

Hotel felt as though it was new. The room had pleasant decor with very nice bath fixtures (e.g. granite). Beds were comfy, although the A.C was Definitely needed to reduce room humidity in the summer. The hotel is located right next to one of the Tanger Outlet areas (Bayside?) and also very close to the road (1A?) leading to downtown Rehoboth Beach, so it is super convenient. The front desk staff were above average.

Negatives were fairly minor: Internet speed at the "business center" (a computer workstation near the entrance) was akin to dial up. Also, I reserved pretty far in advance (it was Ocean City Sunfest weekend) and I'm not sure the prices were really any better than if I had waited. The free breakfast period ends at 9:30am, so I cannot speak for the quality of the offerings, but I did overhear someone grumbling about coffee that seemed like colored water.

Otherwise I was very pleased with my stay and would stay there again.

Dear RFJ,
It is reviews, such as yours, that provides our staff some insight into areas of opportunity and growth. I apologize for your disappointed experience with our business center's computer. We pride ourselves with providing the best possible experience for all our guests during their visit with us. After reading your comments, we called a computer technician to 'tune-up' the desktop. We did conclude that a new business computer is our best option. We expect to have this installed and configured between December 2010 and January 2011.
We were excited to read that you feel our staff provided you with above average service. We truly have a hard-working staff with 'genuine', caring attitudes.
We graciously "thank you" for allowing us to be your hotel of choice during your visit to our area during the Ocean City Sunfest.
Warm Regards,
Dawn Heck
General Manager

This is a great hotel if you don't need to be within walking distance of the beach. In the fall, its pretty easy to drive in Rehoboth and park for free near beach and restaurants. The room I had was either newly decorated or very well maintained. It was very large, and had two queen beds, a sofa, table with two comfortable chairs. No desk. I had refrigerator, microwave, large TV. Outside pool. Computer in the lobby was the slowest computer I have seen lately. Hotel was full but quiet. Good sized parking lot. Breakfast included hot items such as eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits, gravy, sweet rolls and many other items. Hotel in next to outlet mall, and IHOP is a few blocks away. Otherwise, driving is necessary. Road in front is too wide to cross on foot.

Thank you Polarlady for sharing your experience with other fellow travelers. Our "Simply Smart" shower head provides a relaxing bathing experience and continues to get rave reviews from many of our guests.
We look forward to your future visit(s) with us and will most certainly provide you additional in-room coffee.

We used this hotel a few years back and were pleased to find that it was the one we were able to get it at a good price with Hotwire this august. The hotel has nice rooms, even if the one we had this time was a little tired. (Office chair could not be changed from a very low position and carpet could have used some spot cleaning). But it still was just fine and we enjoy the provided convenience of the wet bar. I just wish hotels would start to provide both two decaf and to regular coffees, they all seem to insist on just one of each. (But we got all we wanted downstair, so not a bif problem). As a European used to better water pressure in the shower, I love the shower heads here. They are the best I have experienced in any hotel in the USA.

Front desk staff was friendly and we felt welcome as guests. The free breakfast is better than many other places and we enjoyed that it was something new the second day. Hotel is within walking distance to one of the tree outlets and well placed for anything you want to do in Rehoboth. The fact that it is very quiet since it is a bit off the main strip is an added advantage.

Free use of a computer in the lobby as well as pretty good wifi in the rooms. We didn't use the pool, so can not comment on that.

Great location, with shuttle service to the beach. Very good breakfast, housekkeeping is very efficient. Fridge and microwave in room came in handy and the pool is nice. Staff is helpful and friendly.

Only problem is the tile floors are extremely slippery when wet and combined with the high bathtub walls are very hazardous. People should be warned of this and large bath mats must be provided.

Dear Valued Guest:

As with any guest comments received via trip advisor and other traveler review sites, we fully rely on the experiences of our guests to aid us in creating the safest and most enjoyable stays possible.
After reading about your stay, I believe I owe you an apology for not providing you with that feeling of safety. I certainly will take the comments regarding your concern for the bathroom tile and discuss this with our other team members. We may conduct a few experiments to see under what conditions the tile acquires a slippery feeling so we may remedy that concern. It is my belief that if you experienced this issue, there potentially may be other guests who have experienced it as well, but never brought it to our attention.
We do provide terry bath mats in each of our rooms and rubber bath mats are available by calling the front desk. We will take the appropriate steps to add this last communication to our in-room Guest Service Directory to aid in informing all our guests.
Thank you for allowing us to be your hotel of choice during your visit to our area. We do hope that you will choose to stay with us again if you ever visit the Rehoboth Beach area again.
Warmest Regards,
Dawn Heck
General Manager

Stayed here in Aug 2010 with baseball team. The rooms comfortable and clean. Breakfast sufficient, and the staff EXCEPTIONAL!. Although our group had a unfortunate happening in the parking lot, someone keyed all our cars...We would definately stay here again due to the fact that the Staff was so professional and accomodating.

Dear Levittownlightning,

After the major unfortunate incident which ocurred with the keying of your vehicle while park in our parking lot, I was delightfully suprised and happy to read that the situation did not dampen your opinion of our property or your stay with us. Each of you had handled the situation with such grace and understanding.
When it ocurred, I felt as if my 'own' car had been vandalized. I felt helpless not being able to do more for you and your group.
I, as many others, realize how limited our personal time is and for you to take that time and send out your thoughts and comments of your stay with us, is appreciated more than you may realize.
We hope you come and visit our property again and experience a TOTALLY spa-like stay :-)

Best Regards,
Dawn Heck
General Manager

My wife and I often stay at a "boutique hotel" in Lewes, but at the end of June we wanted to take our boys (10,12,14) to the beach so we tried this hotel. It was perfect for the 5 of us in every way.

For the 4th of July weekend, my wife and I could get away by ourselves and this time selected the Holiday Inn Express since it had been such a pleasant experience for our family the week before.

The hotel is on the strip, close to everything, yet back far enough to be very quiet. It is very easy to get to downtown Rehoboth Beach from the hotel.

The rooms are clean, well equipped, the air conditioning works perfectly (it was 98 º outside,) the pool is very nice when the beach gets too crowded and everyone we met working at the hotel on both trips were professional, friendly and very helpful. There are some negative comments about the free breakfast in this forum, however, we found it to be quite nice for what it is. We were not expecting a brunch buffet, we were expecting a quick express breakfast and that is what is offered; fresh juice is a plus here. We will be back again for another trip to the beach with our boys soon.
