“Not to my liking....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2011

My boyfriend and I stayed here and we were not very please with the accommodations. The owner was very nice when we checked in/out, but they really need to redesign their rooms. We noticed the terrible smoke smell as soon as we walked in the room & did not feel very comfortable sleeping their for the night. The bathroom's shower curtain had stains on it, and I did not even want to shower or touch much of anything in the room. Though you could tell the someone did clean the room, it's not enough! I would not recommend to anyone, sadly. But until they start over with their rooms, this is not Rehobeth's finest...

Room Tip: Maybe stay in their suites* they may be better than the rooms**

I have to say that this was a great place to stay. My husband and I were in OC and on way back decided to stop in Rehoboth Beach. We came upon the Pirates Cove Motel and stopped in. The owner was very nice and accommodating. The price was very desirable and the room was clean. I would definitely come back and stay here again.......!!!!!

If you need a basic, clean room within 5 minutes of the boardwalk and beach this is a great place. It was 100 less than most motels in the area. Furniture in the rooms isn't new, but is in good repair. Everything worked. Management was very nice. Good room if you are on a budget with a family. Save the money for something fun.

Very bad, Old dump needs major overhaul. Stayed in old shack aka cottage entire place reaked of old booze and smoke, from the burned out old shack on the property. This place needs to be comdeamed by the powers that be. Words fail me on how bad this place is, we lost out on our money and went to a decent hotel down the street. The owners Pat and Joe live in a luxuary home next door with views away from this dump, Do they even know or care about what a slum that they have? Only the money OH no parking only for one car! check out the photo below, if you dont believe us, do a drive by first, you will be glad that you did!!!

I have read the reviews that claim lack of towels,hot water, etc etc etc. I just spent two nights there and it was your average budget hotel. They gave extra towels when asked. Never had any problems with the hot water. They have no pool but the ocean is only 6 blocks away. Real nice board walk on the beach and the staff was helpful. You do get what you pay for but if you are looking for a cheaper stay to just have a bed to sleep in, this will do.

I travel a lot and can honestly say this hotel was fine for the money. It is a bit of a walk, but still walkable to all that is happeining in Rehoboth (if you aren't carrying a bunch of beach stuff). The room (directly above office) was clean and just fine. The check in and out service was friendly. The breakfast place across the street was excellent.

It had everthing I needed: An available room when I needed it, it wasn't creepy, in walking distance to Rehobouth beach, the price was right. What do you expect? The Ritz at $300 a night? That is what you get if they close their doors.

In my humble opionion the owners need to take a serious look at the place and decide to renovate or sell to a new business.
The place is relatively clean but the furniture is run down and so is the mattress.
And there is always the problem with the hot water...it is slow coming and you wonder it there is going to be any and the pressure is bad.
There is a thin line between the distressed look and depressed look so decide and enjoy accordingly.
I felt safe and the place is quiet and they try to keep it as neat as possible.
