“One Block From Boardwalk/Nightlife; Clean; Quiet; Spacious; Less Than $100 A Night Specials”
Reviewed May 24, 2011

Just home today: Excellent stay. We did the homework with Tripadvisor reviews. It's an old motel that's been renovated and, for instance, in the bathrooms, had all the brass and tile changed out to brushed aluminum and marble. Good everything; not great (towels are thick but frayed; comforters need to be changed; televisions are old-timey). Good strong free WiFi for Netflix.

Motel layout: Three floors of atrium suites--probably 60 suites all told, twin bed or sing sized mattress suites, we did the king. I have a video on youtube under my name jeffhfromoxford. Search by this and name of hotel at google. Suite description: Slide-card locks (nice touch), one inner room with TV/DVD cabinet with drawers (same in bedroom), one pull-out couch, a desk thing in the corner and a wet bar (nice!). Two close friends of ours could conceivably stay here with us for a night, maybe two. A lot of good space, though, for two people. This is what makes Brighton a good idea: the suite-thing. You get good space. Comfortable enough. Good clean bathroom, updated fixtures as I said, good quality shampoo (in spite of mediocre packaging). Good-sized bedroom with nice mattresses and plenty of extra pillows (due to pull-out in other room). Slider door in bedroom, no porch, good for fresh air (if you know what I mean). Pool is on 3rd floor (4th floor has a half-wing of suites) and is small, bathwater warm, and very clean. Good for parents with small kids and middle aged chill-outs. Teens will be easily bored here. Gym is not worth using: one old bike and a long-broken elliptical, plus a 1980's nautilus weight-contraption thing. Good gym with daily and weekly rates across the street--find and call on google maps. Pool towels were not always available when we were there. Cleaning crew and front desk staff are exceptionally nice; place is overall very clean. We did a three-night weekday special (Sun to Wed: $280) and we had the town to ourselves, the beach was lightly populated, and the hotel was incredibly quiet. There's a good white-noise AC system, and an inner door at the bedroom, so we hope when we return in July (five weeknight special: 1100 bucks) it will be equally quiet. Parking is excellent in their two-level free garage. There are a number of excellent restaurants for all your meals within a couple hundred yards.

Two tips: 1) Rent your beach chairs and umbrellas down at the beach; carrying them is a real drag, and it's easier to walk on and off and have the rental people hold your beach real estate. 2) If you like to drink a couple of drinks before your meal, you're going to be doing it at the bars since there is no liquor store in the downtown three-block area. Just saying: if you want a drink in your room (we liked the Purple Parrot and the Irish Eyes and liked people-watching), plan ahead and bring something from home.

General Notes: Rehoboth is a better idea than other places for rootless cosmopolitan elites (as childless mid-40s open-minded couples like us are identified in the old-people medium of television). The Rehoboth demo is a little eclectic, always safe, fun to watch and interact with, and the restaurants are excellent (and EXPENSIVE--our fave, Planet X, across the street, is 30 an entree--usually a buck and a half for a late, 9 PM dinner for us two). So for us Rehoboth is better than drunk college kids (Dewey), teenagers driving us crazy (Ocean City), or cliched/stereotypical couples with older kids and pleated-front shorts, cell phone belt holders, tucked-in shirts, and a propensity for tube socks (Fenwick, Lewes). Brighton Suites is close to everything and that's important because driving your car in the summer is a nightmare in Rehoboth; we bring bikes and lock them to our car in the garage for jaunts to farther-away restaurants and workouts; there's a good bike rental place within 100 feet of the hotel. You're gonna be walking everywhere, and this palce is close to where ever you're going. Rehoboth is very dog-friendly but we don't bring ours due to the crowds and heat.

Room Tip: One word: weekdays!

While sleeping, received a front desk call at 8:00am requesting I move my car out of the parking garage so that garage cleaning could take place. I think that I could have been advised of this the day before, during checkin. I could have parked out in the street at that point rather than be disturbed. Very unproffesional and poor customer satisfaction!

Spacious with separate living and sleeping spaces. Great location near the town center and beach. Staff was really helpful, turned us on to a great happy hour at Fins bar.

We stayed at Brighton Suites for a couple of nights in Septmeber

Rooms in need of a refurb but otherwise , staff friendly ,& helpful . Large hotel with carpark underneath. Lots of guests and everything in walking distance of the hotel.

Beach wonderful and lots of restaurants within walking distance. Towels, chairs and umbrellas available for the beach and reception area spacey and organised.

All in all a good stay

We took advantage of their mid week value pac. The hotel is one block or so from the beach and provided parking underground. My wife found the room clean and the staff pleasant. The Mariachi , Greenman, and Royal Treat resturants are right on the same block. Sammys for breakfast.The room lacked a balcony, however the sliding door provided plenty of fresh air and late at night one could hear the ocean waves.Actually there were two rooms that were spacious and had two T.V.s with dvd players. A microwave and fridge included. The $25 coupon proffered ensures we will go back again! A fine beach hotel!

Hotel delivered just what it advertised: clean, comfortable, an easy block and a half from the beach, one block over from the main drag. It's not elegant or fancy, but it's more than adequate when you just want to go to the beach and stay someplace decent. Personable staff. Free indoor parking. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

My family and I recently stayed at the Brighton Suites. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon, it was a very busy weekend and the hotel was packed. The hotel was filled with young boys playing in a baseball tournament and the kids were running amok luckily they all left on Sunday and it quited down quite a bit. I'm told these tournaments go on all summer so I suggest you check with the hotel before you book a weekend and beware. I'm not sure we could have stayed another night with all the commotion going on. The hotel has seen better days. It is worn and in dire need of renovation. I knew this going in from the other reviews so I wasn't shocked just be prepared. The bathroom looked updated but that is about it. Everything from the bedding, furniture, even the towels need to be replaced. The pull out sofa bed was the worst part of the room, a very thin mattress so thin you could feel the bars from the sofa bed. We tried putting an extra blanket down to soften it up a bit but that didn't work. By the second night my daughter could not stand it so she slept with me in the double bed which was only a bit more comfortable. On the positive side, I found all the staff friendly and helpful, the location is great, although not directly on the beach is just a quick walk 1 or two small blocks, with stores, shopping, restaurants all around. No need to use your car at all. The hotel provides free parking, beach towels, chairs and umbrellas which is great, saved us a great deal of packing space in the car. If the hotel can fix itself up it could be a great place to stay. Unless they do some renovations I doubt I would go back and I do feel bad about saying that because everyone working there was really very nice.
