At Melissa’s B&B
Ranked #4 of 14 Rehoboth Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

This was our fourth consecutive summer stay at At Melissa's. Each year we seem to be adding an additional day for a longer stay. Simply put, At Melissa's is like having your own beach house, without worrying about anything. Melissa provides a casual, cozy and relaxing atmosphere, where you really feel as though it's your own house (along with the other guests of course). The front porch is our favorite, as you can relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the cool ocean breezes (beach is 1 block+ away) while chatting with other guests or just chilling out on your own. The location is absolutely perfect. At Melissa's is definitely the best way to enjoy the beauty, fun and night life of Rehoboth Beach. Can't wait to return next year.

This is a wonderful small B&B just a couple blocks off the boardwalk and beach. Melissa is very warm and welcoming, and all the guests seem to feel more like friends of an extended family rather than just paying customers. People sit around on the porch at any time of day, and everyone is easy to talk to and interesting. The complimentary wine at the end of the day may help the conviviality along a bit! Bathrooms are very nice and up to date, and the breakfast menu is excellent. Melissa serves a gluten-free menu, which I thought might be boring, but it isn't boring at all; there is something for everyone.

This is our place to stay when we are in Rehoboth! It would be difficult to consider anything else. After years of staying in various hotels a friend told me about At Melissa's. We called and booked a room in may years ago. That one weekend hooked us and now it is every year , at least 3 different time: pre season, high season and post. Lovely old house with 6 rooms all beautifully decorated. A great living area , backyard and the front porch were you are Lways welcome! Breakfast is home made with a wide variety of food and guaranteed to not leave you hungry. Snacks beer wine and sodas all day long. Beach towels chairs umbrellas and coolers - and a short walk to the beach. By official hotel ratings this place cannot be listed as "5 star" but lets get real! This place is 5 STAR!

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...
