“Like going back to our home at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We started going to this property years ago when it was the Dinner Bell Inn. The Bellmoor is much more upscale than its predecessor, but the signature, beautiful garden with tables, water features and more is what draws us back each year. In recent years we have chosen to stay in the deluxe king rooms in the main building. The rooms are very large with comfortable beds and bedding. There is a small refrigerator in the room, but a microwave would also be nice. I believe the more expensive rooms on the 4th floor (special elevator key necessary) have microwaves along with other perks. The second shift staff are very friendly and helpful. They introduced us to Confucius Chinese restaurant down the street from the inn. It was the best Chinese we had ever eaten--yes, Chinese food at the beach. The breakfast at the Bellmoor is not as good as it used to be when the food was catered by Catcher's. The weekday buffet includes scrambled eggs or a dried out egg casserole. The fruit and coffee are very good. All in all we love this place and will continue to return each September.

We stayed in a room overlooking the Garden, a mini version of Eden. This section is older than the main building where the rooms are more like a tradiional hotel. The daily breakfast buffet was delicious. The Bellmoor staff were so helpful in restaurant recommendations. It really was a glorious week.

We have been coming to The Bellmoor, twice a year, for five years or so. We love the ambiance of the inn and the loving care of the staff.

It reminds us of The Charlotte Inn in Martha's Vineyard.

We have never been disappointed in our stay. It is convenient to everything you would want to do in Rehoboth and all within walking distance. We have always stayed in the main building in a Jr. Suite and have loved our accommodations. The garden area is really quaint.

Judy and Harry K.

Highly recommend The Bellmoor Inn.

Room Tip: They do not have an onsite restaurant, however, they have a wonderful breakfast buffet every morning...

The lobby decor is that of a European Explorer; especially, with the "study" just off the lobby. A really great looking first impression. When walking through the hotel the "feel" and "look" is consistent...it's a really nice looking hotel. One slight negative is that you have to walk outside to reach the garden rooms; however, the plus side is that the gardens are stunning! Once inside the room...at least our room, it was extremely clean as well as well decorated. The carpet in the room was a bit worn and it had a slight musty smell (which is why I didn't give 5 stars) but overall it was an extremely nice room. The hotel served breakfast as part of the package and it really was outstanding. We chose to eat outside in the gardens as mentioned earlier and it was an amazing start to our day.

I wish the hotel was closer to the beach as it is about 2 blocks away. However, it is one block from the main street (Baltimore Ave) where the shops and restaurants are located.

Highly recommend this place

Room Tip: Room 205 garden building seems to be a bit larger than others in the building.

We have been going to the Bellmoor Inn for years and they have never disappointed us. It is great to walk to restaurants, the boardwalk, the bookstore and shops without needing a car for the entire visit. The Bellmoor is a quiet retreat with the advantage of plenty to do right outside the door.

Room Tip: We prefer the main building but the garden rooms are less expensive and also very nice.

When you're inside the Bellmoor, you'd never know you were three blocks from the Rehoboth boardwalk. It's a lovely quiet place, with outstanding service and a great staff. We got great recommendations for restaurants, and the front desk people are extremely knowledgeable about the area.The outside garden is a wonderful spot to have either breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack (both complementary), or to simply read and relax. The best rooms are very pricey, and the rooms outside the main building are small, but every guest is treated as special. It draws an older crowd, and isn't necessarily a great place for young children. It's a short walk to everything, and a real oasis in a croded beach town.

In August to celebrate our 57 wedding anniversary, we,of course, chose the Bellmoor. We have been staying there twice a year for many years. How delighted my husband and I were to find that the Bellmoor had upgraded our usual garden room to a very lovely room on the 2nd floor!!
We are so grateful to the generous and gracious management for the fond memories of our stay .

Room Tip: We have found all rooms excellent.
