“At Melissa's is the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

My sisters and I just returned from a visit to Melissa's. We have stayed here many times over the years and will not stay anywhere else. You don't need to bring a thing with you except your clothes. Melissa provides everything else...beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, coolers, beer, sodas. And when you return from the beach in the afternoon, the wine is waiting! And the breakfast is very yummy! Once you park your car, you will not need it again until you leave. Everything is within walking distance.

Room Tip: I have stayed in all the room At Melissa's and they are all great!

At Melissa's is a gem! Melissa Clink, the owner, provides everything for her guests. The expanded continental breakfast has a baked bread and meat daily in addition to yogurt, hard boiled eggs and fruit. The rooms are quite charming and bathrooms are updated in this century plus old house. This year she has added a new perk: free bike rental from Atlantic Cycles one block away. This is in addition to providing beach towels, chairs, toys, boogie boards, umbrellas etc. There are games for rainy days and sitting area both in the back yard and fabulous front porch, which is where we hung out in the evenings, for breakfast and other times. I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Room 5 is very roomy on the second floor, bigger than room 6. Room 2 on the first floor is next to...

I have stayed At Melissa's on many occasions. I was there for a week with my brother and always find it charming, relaxing and a friendly environment. There is a sign in the living room that says "Come as guest, leave as friends". I have always found this true as many of the same reasons I stay there, others feel the same way and have met some very interesting people over the years from really all over the world. You always feel welcome, and despite mostly bad weather for this stay, Melissa's place makes up for it with the warmth and hospitality of her house, and her personality.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the house. Its hard to be choosey in season as she books way ahead, so I would su...

My wife and I stayed at Melissa's the first weekend in May. Melissa welcomed us upon our arrival. She offered complimentary wine and beer, coffee and tea, proffered beach needs from towels to water to coolers and chairs, although it was a little windy and cool for the beach. She also served an extended breakfast from 7-10 am with lots of gluten-free options and juice. Not to mention chocolate pound cake one morning and carrot cake another! Most rooms had en-suite private baths. No fussy bed linens or lace, just laid back comfortable beach/antique furnishings. There was a covered front porch, large back deck, hammock or table and chairs in her private little courtyard. There is also some off-street parking. Melissa also has an agreement with one of the local bike shops. The area is walkable and bike friendly.

Many of the other guests were repeat customers of Melissa's. After talking with them and with Melissa we could see why. She offered great advice on what to do, where to go and what to avoid. Staying at Melissa's is like staying with a good friend, even if it is your first time! If you didn't enjoy staying "..at Melissa's", you don't know how to relax. We will go back again.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a King-size bed and lots of windows. Room 3 is family friendly with bunk beds for little...

Melissa's B & B was comfy, clean, and only a block from the boardwalk/beach. Melissa is a great owner/hostess, makes you feel like you're staying at a friends house. She offered complimentary wine and beer, provided beach needs from towels to water to coolers and chairs. She also served an extended breakfast from 7-10 am with lots of options and champagne and juice. Not to mention chocolate pound cake one morning!

The rooms and private baths were great. No fussy bed linens or lace, just layed back beach/antique furnishings, but comfortable. You could hang out on the covered front porch, large back deck, hammock or table and chairs in her private little courtyard.

Melissa was a very gracious host and clearly enjoys her 17 years of being a B & B owner. She offered knowledgeable restaurant and beach advice and very easy going.

This is a keeper, will definitely be back, the best birthday I've had in a long time. Thanks to my hubby for pulling it together too!

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the two first floor rooms, a little noisy but not obnoxiously so, from guest on...

I have just returned from my 5th stay at "A Melissa's" in Rehoboth Beach, De. and from my experiences, I can truthfully say that "At Melissa's" is the perfect B&B.
The accommodations are clean, charming, comfortable, and inviting. The porch, set with two dining tables, white wicker chairs, benches, and coffee tables is simply delightful, beckoning to you to bring your coffee, breakfast, or glass of wine out to enjoy the peace (or party) as you desire. Now, let's get to that breakfast (I wish). The warm, friendly host and proprietor, Melissa, sets out a scrumptious repast of juices, milk, yogurt, fruit, cereal, hard-boiled eggs, breakfast meats, and sweet breads. The make-your-own waffles are delicious and they (and everything served) is gluten-free! Coffee and tea are always available from a fully-stocked Kearug machine in the dining room as is complimentary chilled wine. Beer, soft drinks, and bottled water are complimentary as well. A stay at "At Melissa's" also includes lots of amenities such as beach chairs, towels, and coolers to take to the beach. Actually, Melissa has thought of everything to make one's stay comfortable and she intuitively knows how to adjust to one's level of desire for interaction - whether for peace or socialization. So, therefore, to me, Melissa is the perfect host and the very comfy "At Melissa's," the perfect B&B.

I am a US Marine from the little area of The United States. I now live in Fort Myers, FL (where I am based out of) but any chance I get to vacation with the family we always come to Rehoboth Beach. Which leads me to Mrlissa's B&B. I only have one sentence to this B&B, simply the best. Melissa's is one of the only reason I made this account so I could tell all vacationers to stay here. TRUST ME
