“Last Minute Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We showed up without a reservation and were quite nervous about acquiring a place for us to stay. We walked in and were greeted by gracious Ken. He was very helpful and had us situated in no time. We were so impressed by the cleanliness of the room. I am a neat freak! Also the location could not have been better. We walked everywhere. What an absolutely fantastic time for a last minute adventure. We are coming back in a few weeks for round two!

Just a few steps off the boardwalk, in the center of everything. Each summer we stay at the Admiral for four nights. It is clean, quiet, safe and always good for people watching. Rooms open outside and provide overview so beach and streets. Easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. Desk team is friendly and housekeeping is attentive.

Room Tip: Ocean view on top floors offer best views

This hotel has a great location. It is just steps from the beach and all of the boardwalk attractions. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. I did find the rooms a tad small - there were two of us in the room and I found it a bit difficult to have space to sit all of our luggage and other stuff. Perhaps more luggage racks, or a wider dresser could help - but these are minor points. The staff was wonderful - very friendly, very helpful. They had plenty of wheeled luggage carts for getting stuff from the car to the room and back again. The indoor pool and adjacent sundeck were also very nice. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Got there on a Friday night thru Sunday stay. Was a bit expensive for a girls weekend, $600+ stay, but I didn't have to move my car once, so for me the location is what you are paying for.
Was myself my neighbor and our two 9 year old girls. You can't get any closer to the beach and the activities while still being tucked into a quiet street in town. The life gaurd station is right there, grottos (yuck! Kids love it though) right down stairs, quick walk to funland.
I have been coming to rehoboth my entire life. The outside of this place leaves a little to be desired, but the rooms were SPOTLESS. And I am picky! Not one grain of sand anywhere. While the rooms are small, it was enough for us. The house keeping really went the extra mile when they cleaned out room. They made the bed so nicely & put our girls beloved stuffed animals displayed in the middle of the bed, even lined up their Funland trophies. And once again the room was spotless!
The pool was nice, small and could be updated a bit. I wish u had your own private balcony.
All in all I would 100% stay here again, for another quick getaway.
It was super clean, well kept, elevator was nice to have, room was updated, and you can't beat the location. If your a small group and don't want hassle of moving your car and walking a mile to the beach, stay here. You won't be disappointed.

After a very enjoyable stay at the Admiral on Baltimore, I'm going to list the pros and cons of this hotel

PROS:
-LOCATION is superb. It's on Baltimore Street, a half block away from the beach. You can walk everywhere but it's a little quieter than Rehoboth or Wilmington St, which we really enjoyed, especially at night. It's steps away from a fantastic cheese shop and little grocery store as well as many more upscale restaurants.

-Updated rooms including new sink/countertop with very comfy beds. Cleaning staff was prompt and did a great job cleaning the room

-Indoor pool! This was so incredible with our two year old when it rained for 2 days. The pool is heated and in a greenhouse type room so you still feel like youre outdoors. There's also a great sundeck right off the pool. Even though the pool itself could use a little sprucing up, it was never without clean towels and was always kept immaculately clean.

CONS:
-The hallways are a bit beat up and nothing much to look at: chipping paint, dirty, etc

-Front desk staff is not the most helpful. They are very nice but we found them to be a bit clueless about pretty basic things such as recommendations for restaurants, take out etx.

-This is a really small thing but there are no towel hooks in the room. There is one towel bar but when 3 people are in a beach hotel room, there needs to be more places to hang bathing suits/towels.

All in all we had a terrific stay at the Admiral and would definitely stay again!

the room wasn't bad. the hotel does need a little love. but it was a nice stay for three days anymore and the hard mattress would of caused back pain i'm sure. most of the staff was great but there was a gentleman who didn't feel the need to smoke off the property so we got to walk through a cloud of his smoke trying to get back into the hotel. on the bright side it was a safe hotel on a great boardwalk. i would stay there again.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I apologize for any inconvenience that was caused during your stay due to the gentleman smoking. Our property is smoke-free and we pride ourselves in keeping it that way. I am glad to hear that you found our location to suite your needs and that the staff was helpful during your stay. Our mattresses are all brand new and many of our guests find then to be very comfortable. We do understand that everyone has different preferences to the type of mattress they like to sleep on and we try our best to accommodate them. I do hope that you can return to stay with us again. Best wishes

The room was tiny. The AC unit and the fridge were so noisy hub couldn't sleep, but the next day, they were both replaced! The room was cleaned well, they provided extra towels upon request. The location is perfect, and there is a hose on the second floor parking lot where you can wash off after the beach. Nothing fancy, you might want a bigger place if you have kids.

Room Tip: Ask for one on the ground floor so you don't have to deal with ramps/steps/elevators.
