Hotel options are very limited in Bethany Beach. Usually we rent a home for a week, but since we could only stay a few days, this was our best option. The hotel is clean, quiet and rooms are lovely. We were 2 adults and 2 children and had a deluxe queen. It's worth paying up for the extra space. We...

My family and I spent a few days at this property and we were all very impressed with the quality of the property and the level of customer service provided by the staff. We arrived early (around 12:30pm) to check in, but there were no rooms available due to a sell out night from the day before. The front desk...

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in mid August. It's located across the highway from Sea Colony which sits on the ocean. You cannot access the beach through their property but if you walk about a quarter of a mile you have nice beach access. The main area of Bethany is a little further maybe 1/2 mile. Bethany...

Great stay for a family for a beach vacation in Bethany Beach. The room was very spacious with nice bedding, furniture, bar area, and bathroom with granite counter-top.
