“A terrible experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We needed a room on short notice, and this is what we found. The website said that the lobby was under renovation. What a misleading understatement.

Guests must enter through the back door, which remained unlocked and ajar all night with orange extension cords running through it. There is scaffolding everywhere. There are pallets of concrete stacked everywhere around the pool. But most exasperating, and unsafe, were the tiny fragments of fiberglass flying everywhere in the air, covering the car, our hair and our clothes.

I've never before heard of a hotel making such extensive, disruptive renovations and staying open for guests. This place should have closed during construction.

Room Tip: Choose somewhere else—anywhere.

We stayed here the last weekend in June 2013. The lobby is open and most of the construction is done. I thought with all the construction the rooms would be refurbished, but aside from carpeting, I don't think that was the case. Our room had peeling wall paper and some mold on the shower curtain, but overall it was fine for the weeknight price; overpriced for the weekend, (especially considering the location is a few miles from the beach. We stayed here for a lacrosse tournament in Lewes so being away from the beach was not really an issue for us. Also, it's not really set up as a beach hotel (outside shower, areas to hang your wet things, etc.) The staff was mostly really nice and accommodating, especially the night manager. Also, we arrived really early the day of our check in and they offered us a place to change, etc. if we wanted to go to the pool or beach. The breakfast was decent and is open until 10 am, but get there by 9 if you want your choice of food. The breakfast ladies stop replenishing shortly after that and if the hotel is full, you may not have much to choose from besides cereal. Another plus, coffee in the lobby all the time and reasonable prices for drinks from the vending machine ($1 water, .75 for a can of soda).

This may have been a fine hotel, but it is 2/3 destroyed by destruction., No lobby entrance, just a dangerous dusty walk through a hardhat area through a back door. Most of parkingh lot closd or full of construction vehicles. Several hotel exterior walls literally torm down exposing room to outdoors and visitors to potential hazards. Cardboard on the carpet, plastic on the walls, construction hardhat workers throughout 12 hours a day. A disaster. It SHOULD NOT be open...dusty and hazardous. The straff was nice in arranging another hotel and a refund.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Comfort Inn in Rehoboth on short notice on a weekend and were happily surprised.

We needed a hotel room in Dewey Beach on very short notice for a wedding. Most hotels in the area required a minimum two night stay, but the Comfort Inn was available for a very reasonable price and for the one night that we needed.

The hotel was in the process of what appeared to be a total update of the hotel inside and out. Our room looked like one of the recently renovated rooms and was well furnished and was a star above what one would associate with a Comfort Inn. The beds were comfortable and we had no problems at all.

The staff both morning and night that we dealt with were pleasant and seemed to genuinely want to help in any way they could.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to a traveler that is looking for an affordable hotel in the beach area without sacrificing much of the comfort and niceness of a more expensive hotel.

The Hotel was under construction when we arrived. We were not told this when we booked the rooms. Hotel staff was rude. When I called to talk to the GM she was never there. Not a good experience. We stayed here a year ago and it was good so that is why we returned. We will never again.

My wife and I just enjoyed a weekend during the off-season. We did not experience the negative items noted by the previous reviewer: there was no smoke smell, the mini fridge was quiet and the towels were plush. In fact, we were quite impressed with the renovations which are now completed on the second and third floors (first floor is supposed to be done by summer). I don't know the age of this property but with the renovations, it's like being in a hotel that is less than a year old. Our room was furnished nicely, with attractive furnishings (wallpaper, carpet, curtains). The bedding seemed to be new; the AC unit was more quiet than in most hotels at this price. For under $100, this is a value as far as accommodations in this resort town.

Room Tip: Rooms with "low numbers" like 201, 202, 203, etc. are close to the elevator. To enjoy less...

Stayed at the Comfort in in early March 2013 and found it comfortable and clean. The room was non smoking but definitely smelled like smokers had been there. The mini fridge was so noisy that we unplugged it. The bathroom was clean, but the towels were rather worn. The bed was very comfortable, and other than the noisy fridge, our stay was nice and quiet. The breakfast included options to please everyone - all self service. All in all, a good option but nothing to rave about.
