“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We stayed one night in the off season but it was race weekend in Dover and there were many wedding going on- the place was hopping! The place was nice. Exactly what can be expected of older beachfront hotel. Room was perfect for 2 adults. Nice balcony with an ocean view. Perfect for our anniversary weekend!

We stayed a couple of nights here late in the season and found it a bit disappointing for the price. The room was nice and clean, but the TV was tiny. The AC was so loud that you could not listen to the TV when it was on. And we could hear the neighbors talking. The breakfast was minimal at best. Location is good, but not right in the heart of the action.

Room Tip: You always have to re-enter through the lobby, although you can exit by the stairs. Ocean view in a...

Average hotel. Large rooms, ok beds, ok bathroom. Very nice views of the beach, located right on the Rehoboth boardwalk. Steps from the beach. So many things to do, just a short walk from the main drag. Breakfast was not the greatest, but there are so many other places very close that we were fine. Overall a good value for the location. Could use some updating, but pretty average for a beach hotel.

Great stay, only draw back this year was no sun and no beach time.

Our third year in a row and still found congenial staff, and OK accommodation. Rooms definitely need to be updated but they are clean and close to the beach, .. Located right on the boardwalk allows for strolling in the evening giving access to many little shops and activities. Will definitely come again, but next time will try and follow the sun!.

Room Tip: All rooms have some ocean view. So no matter where you stay you can get a glimpse of the water.

Two-night stay during last week of August...........second floor oceanfront. Location is great. However, for the price, value was less than expected, even considering time of year. Hotel is not particularly attractive, at all...........very plain and somewhat worn. Our entry door lock was a witch to open and attendant could only suggest working with the key..........which was annoying to say the least. Then...........the sliding door did not have any screen..........which was worse than annoying considering we wanted to both see and hear the ocean waves. They finally got us a screen door the second day..........and it kept falling out of the track. Room was functional. Bathroom had large shower along with tub, which was a nice feature.

Room Tip: Ask questions about room features..............and ask if they will fix problems immediately or not.

This place is horrible. It is appearent that they has been not capital improvement at this hotel since in was built who knows when. The whole place is rusting out. At somepoint you have to reinvest in the property. Another suggestion would be to outfir the rooms with flatscreen TV's. I don't paying a premium for beachfront space but you have to invest in you property at some point. I would never stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone.

Another great visit to the Henlopen hotel! 3 year sin a row now and already planning next year. Granted the rooms are not up to date, but for the most part clean and comfortable. A/C is loud but room temp was perfect slept great every night. Location is key- right on beach solo perfect walk right out of hotel, wallking distance to boardwalk, shops and great restaurants. very enjoyable:)
