“Quaint, clean and down-to-earth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Better late than never, I'd like to thank Gary for last year's 5-day stay. My daughter and I had a delightful time staying at the Cabana while in town for a family wedding!

After (re-)reading the existing reviews, I feel the need to comment, that apparently what goes around comes around :) Gary was quite forthcoming, concerning all of our questions and extra wishes (infos / late check out / using parking / etc.)

The amenities were exactly as described, very clean and the beds were comfortable... anybody expecting more, or a different location, maybe should have done some reading-up prior to their stay. (E.g. we brought a Keurig along, because yes, the coffee offered does indeed leave a lot to be desired if you are an avid coffee drinker)

If you are looking for a nice, clean, quiet place 3 blocks away form the ocean and 1,5 from the shops and bars - this is the perfect place! A wonderfully contorted house with all sorts of nooks and crannies to gather or relax in... we are bound to return one day!!

My family and I really enjoyed our stay. We go to Rehobeth and Ocean City frequently, staying at many different places. Cabana Gardens definitely stands out. It has a nice little pool, immaculately clean and beautiful rooms and common areas, and it was obvious that Gary the owner is committed to folks enjoying themselves. If you like peace and quiet and beauty, this is the place!

We returned to Cabana Gardens in September, 2013, for our third stay in the last six years and were not disappointed. The innkeeper, Gary, is a great host who possess a very funny, dry wit. We loved chatting with him and getting the scoop on what's been happening at the beach since our last visit. The rooms and common areas are, as always, clean and well maintained. Breakfast consisted of a variety of cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruits (the figs were delicious), eggs, juice, coffee, tea and those amazing muffins. There was a good mix of guests at the B&B during our stay, both straight and gay, and everyone got along famously, whether at the dining table for breakfast or at poolside. The pool area was very clean and the grounds surrounding it attractive and serene. We've stayed at other B&Bs in Rehoboth, but Cabana Gardens can't be beat, especially when you factor in its ideal location, reasonable prices (compared to the other B&Bs in the area), the pool, and the cleanliness of the inn and grounds. We can't wait to go back next season.

Room Tip: We'd suggest staying on the 2nd floor either overlooking the pool or the lake.

Thanks Gary. Hopefully we will be back next year. Great location and clean rooms. Walk to beach was very easy and places to eat were close. Girl who cleaned rooms was nice as well. Swimming pool was a great addition for a bed and breakfast.

I've stayed at three bed and breakfasts in Rehoboth Beach in the last five years. I stumbled upon this one because the other two were fully booked the weekend I wanted to stay. The stay was perfect. The location is central, but off the main street so it is quiet. Wonderful restaurants are nearby, as is a coffee shop, liquor store and grocery store, all within two blocks. The beach is only four blocks away (as well as the boardwalk). The breakfast was served continental style and was plentiful. The pool was clean, and very private from anyone not staying at the B&B. I will definitely return to this B&B in the future!

The accommodation at Cabana Gardens is clean and basic. Rooms feature the bare minimum and common areas are much the same. As many have noted, breakfast is served from 9-10 AM with no exceptions. Overall, not worth the hefty price tag.

The most appalling thing about this B&B was the rude innkeeper who made our average experience poor. Rules are posted everywhere (but simple things like the internet passcode are no where to be found) and any requests (Can I leave my bag here past check out time? Can I leave my car here 2 hours past check out time?) are treated as impositions and generally shot down with ridiculous excuses.

Needless to say, I will be taking my hard-earned money to a (friendly) place where I'm not made to feel like a delinquent/child the next time I vacation at Rehoboth Beach!

Gary T, Owner at Cabana Gardens Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review, August 17, 2013
This reviewer appears not to be familiar with room rates of a resort beach town like Rehoboth Beach during peak summer season. We are the only in-town B and B with a swimming pool and we offer free parking which many B and B's in this town do not have. We also have rooms with a lake or pool view and some rooms have decks. Features that many Band B's in this town do not have. All of these factors influence the room rates. My rates are competitive and below average for comparable accommodations.

As to the comment about the 9 to 10 am breakfast: breakfast is available before 9am and never stops untill all guests have eaten which is usually around 10:15. On Saturday morning, the reviewer's traveling companion told me about 9:45 that she wanted to take a 20 minute run and asked if she should take breakfast items at that time to her room. I replied that she could but it wasn't necessary and that breakfast would be available when she returned from her run. She returned around 10:15 and had breakfast. At 10:30 the reviewer and her traveling companion were still at the breakfast table chatting. All other guests had eaten and left. Breakfast items were cleared at that time, but only after these guests indicated that they were finished eating.

As to the comment about leaving bags after check out, the reviewer's traveling companion asked this question because she was catching a bus at 7:30pm. I told her she could leave her bags in the lobby but with the understanding that we would not be responsible for the items left behind. She apparently did not like the answer and did not leave her bags.

My husband and I booked a last-minute stay at Cabana Gardens last month. We had never been to this B&B before -- it turned out to be perfect for our getaway. The rooms, though basic, are very clean. We were glad that previous reviews mentioned the lack of toiletries -- we brought our own. The breakfast is basic but nice and sufficient, and the breakfast areas are spacious and relaxing. There is a small pool which is a nice amenity, and an outside shower to help prevent sandy rooms. The greenery on and surrounding the property is beautiful. Cabana Gardens is within walking distance of the beach and the main shopping/eating strip, and tucked away enough that that it’s not incredibly noisy (rooms with window AC units have the most white noise barrier, I imagine). The rates are reasonable, making a stay there a good deal for the area -- we hope to return again soon!

Room Tip: Rooms with window AC units have the most white noise barrier. These rooms overlook the pool and are...
