“Great beach vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

My husband and I spent five nights at the Henlopen Hotel and had a wonderful time. The location is great, especially because we were there with our family with grandchildren. It is so convenient to be able to go back and forth to the beach and to be right on the boardwalk. Our room, which was a suite, was very comfortable, and had a view of the ocean from the balcony. Everyone, from the people at the front desk to the staff that cleaned our room, were very friendly and helpful.
This was our first visit to Rehobeth beach and if we return again, would plan to stay at the Henlopen Hotel. The rates are very reasonable for a hotel with such a great location.

Please do not choose this hotel! It is awful! They try to fool you with the lobby, which is nice. But once you get to your room, beware! The room hasn't been refurbished since the 1970's. It was dirty (there was sand in the bathroom when we checked in and it was still there when we checked out!) and musty. The towels were a joke....worn and thin and only two provided. The staff was rude and unhelpful! The hallways are dirty, sandy and hot. I read the reviews before I booked this hotel and now I wonder how anyone could have given this hotel a good or even decent review?

We spent a few days at the Henlopen Hotel mid July. Every one of the staff from the front desk to the maid staff were friendly and always willing to help or give dining suggestions. I lost a valuable piece of jewelry and the maintenance staff and the management couldn't have been more helpful. It is rare to find such a great group of people in every department of a hotel. I would return and recommend this hotel to anyone. Some of the rooms still are slated for renovation, but the staff is the best I have ever encountered in my travels.

Room Tip: Ask for a renovated room.

Very clean, basic room, the staff was very accommodating regarding early check in, late check out, etc. not luxurious, but nice view, right on the beach - just what we were looking for! Location at end of boardwalk makes this a reasonably quiet location away from the noisy end of the boardwalk, but a short walk to all the Rehoboth attractions and services.

Room Tip: Ask for the best ocean view.

We had our wedding at the Salero on the top of the hotel recently and we booked a number of rooms for our guests. Our oceanfront suite (for Groom and Bride) was fantastic. The room was comfortable, spacious, had amazing views of the beach and ocean, was very clean, and the bathroom was exceptionally nice for a beachfront hotel. Likewise, my parents had a very large suite that was perfect for hosting the afterparty when the reception ended. Their room was also outstanding. I can't help but think that any negative reviews are just not people with reasonable expectations. Frankly, I didn't expect the rooms to be nearly as well kept and clean as they were given the fact that these rooms are regularly used by families with kids going on and off the beach and boardwalk.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and very accommodating. Anything we needed, they went out of their way to do for us as quickly as possible. I really couldn't have asked for better service, or a better value in a hotel with this location during peak season.

Thanks to Henlopen for a seamless and enjoyable experience. We will definitely be back!

This hotel, on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, is a really good choice!

Clean rooms, friendly staff, great location.

Free parking, breakfast for the kids, very helpful at the front desk, housekeeping went OUT OF THEIR WAY EVERYDAY TO HELP US!

So glad we choose the Henlopen Hotel! See you nice folks again next year!

I liked this hotel a lot for a beach hotel. It's on the beach and a lot of the rooms seem to have a partial ocean view. The amenities weren't great--the AC was really loud, which totally blocks any ocean noise. It's a little far from the main attractions on the boardwalk, which was a plus and a minus. The beach is emptier, which is great, but you also have to shlep to get to Funland, etc.
