We really loved this hotel. The location, just behind the dunes on Dewey Beach, is wonderful. Off-season prices are very reasonable for the modestly-incomed. We stayed on the third floor on the ocean side & the view is just lovely. The rooms are clean, bright and very comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I was impressed at how the owners strike a balance between keeping a homey feeling to the place while proving the amenities of a high quality chain hotel.
Breakfast is pretty good for a hotel breakfast. The staff provide exceptional chocolate chip cookies every evening, still warm from the oven. Having a sizable fridge and microwave in the room was very helpful for us as we were traveling on a budget & brought a lot of our own food.
The only problem we encountered was not the hotel's fault at all. We visited in the off-season & a dredging/beach replenishment project was going on just a short way down the beach. It was a little noisy & had some bright lights & heavy machinery. Honestly, we did not find it problematic, but I can imagine that some people might. If it was occurring right in front of the hotel, that wouldn't have been too pleasant.
We spent most of our time walking the beach, jumped in the ocean once (in November), visited Rehoboth a few times (just a ~15 walk) and explored Cape Henlopen State Park and Fort Miles. Wonderful trip -- we both highly recommended these digs.
