Just spent the night for a quick get away. Stayed before for my daughters wedding, too. Highly recommend Salero/Henlopen for anyone considering a wedding! Dawn and the hotel staff were amazingly helpful, friendly and knowledgable. The Henlopen is really a treasure. Not far off the path, truly ocean front, and fairly priced. It's not new or glamorous- but not tired....

This is adequate at best. The place has an odor and is badly outdated and just feels icky. The bedding is old and the rooms are plain. The breakfast room is outside the lobby and not very nice. It's not worth advertising that they have breakfast. I would not go back. Yuck.

Just right for what we were looking for! This is more of a motel than a hotel as the room doors go to the outside. The rooms were comfortable and offered a side view to the ocean. There was an umbrella/chair rental in front of the motel and it was just a short walk down the boardwalk to Main St...

We had my daughters wedding at Salero at the Beach atop the Henlopen Hotel on August 19th, 2016. The Henlopen housed all of our guests from around the nation. What a wonderful experience. Although we rented a large condo down the street for the week prior to the wedding to house all of the pre- celebration festivities, we stayed at...

My family and I made a last minute decision to extend a day trip into a weekend. We were able to get a room here for the same night and they didn't try to charge us $350/night to do so. The building is odd...yes. It is half condos. The lobby entrance is tucked away around the back. However, you can...

There are several strange things about the Henlopen Hotel: 1. the entrance is on the opposite side from the ocean Boardwalk front and very well hidden from view; 2. the parking is very tight in all directions. Even the staff admitted it was strangely squashed; 3. there is direct access to the Boardwalk from the second floor patio but only...

I was quite impress with the oldest landmark hotel on the beach. Not only was our room clean but extremely spacious. Compare to the Plaza or other nearby hotels. Our savings were close to 500.00. In which we happily spend on dining and dancing. If you book a room ask for Laura . She will give you the best service...

Went this past weekend for a wedding and stayed Thursday-Sunday. While the front desk was very friendly, the lobby & elevator very nice and the cleaning staff nice, we felt that the hotel was a rip-off for what it offered. We paid over $650 for our 3 night stay and expected more in ammentities. Upon arrival to our room, we...

This is old hotel with 1/2 of it condos. Rooms are OK but dressing area has no privacy and bathrooms have no fans. Streamy. Side balcony face condo side and fans for air conditioners make a lot of noise. Continental buddy is poor. Cost better spent elsewhere
