I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights because I was in a wedding that was taking place on the beach with the reception at the Salero on the top floor. We arrived around 12:30pm, our room was not ready at this point but the nice lady at the desk gave us local restaurant recommendations and offered the changing room if we wanted to hit the beach. I was very sad to find out that this location does not have a pool. Around 3pm I received a phone call letting me know my room was ready. We were in room 704. There are 2 elevators at the Henlopen and they do move fairly quickly. We parked in the parking garage onsite, my only complaint here was that the parking spots are VERY tight so be careful. Upon entering the room there was a foul smell. We went ahead and turned the air up and closed the bathroom door and it seemed to go away. We had a double bed room and it did have a microwave and mini fridge. The beds were rock hard and neither my boyfriend or I slept very well. All rooms seem to have a balcony, our view was the concrete courtyard. However, if we leaned over the balcony and looked to the right, we could see the beach. The room was very outdated, it had a big gap in the doorway, open cracks in the ceiling and a very small television. Since I was the MOH in the wedding, I did visit other bridal party members in the hotel in different rooms. The bride did have an oceanfront room on the same floor as me (room 716) which was completed updated, more modern with a wonderful view. The furniture and bathrooms in their oceanfront looked very modern. I also visited another bridal party member in room 303 and their room was outdated like mine. The hotel does offer continental breakfast in the breakfast room which was nice. It had coffee, juices, pre-packed pastries, cereal, and breakfast sandwiches. It isn't gourmet but was nice to have something to get the day started. The Henlopen is located right on the end of the boardwalk and very convenient. I didn't need to move my car the whole weekend, as we could easily walk everywhere we needed to go in Rehobeth. The reception was held on the top level of the Henlopen at the Salero, and it had a wonderful view of the ocean. They did a great job with the reception and my friends were so happy with the work of the host, Dawn. Overall the Henlopen was convenient as I needed to be staying near the bride and all of the festivities, however I would not pay to stay here again for pleasure. The prices are expensive for how outdated the majority of the rooms are.
