“A quiet paradise at the beach”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

At Melissa's is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed at. Melissa does an amazing job of making her B&B feel like your home away from home. She goes the extra mile to make sure that her guests are comfortable. The daily breakfast is delicious - she was even able to accommodate our vegan needs! One of our favorite things was the spacious front porch. It's the perfect place to read with a cup of tea to start the day and the perfect place to unwind in the evening. We will definitely return and look forward to making At Melissa's one of our annual traditions.

Hubby and I stayed here when we were invited to a beach wedding. The place was immaculate. The bed was very comfy. She thought of all the ammenties you could wish for. I especially liked the eye makeup remover. These handy little presoaked pads got every bit of mascara off. She was out of the house when we arrived, but not to worry. We found our key and our room ready. Very casual. Goodies and coffee available all day. Very nice selection of Keurig, as well. Food was pretty good. We also loved relaxing on the rocking chairs on her big porch. I like the lamps she uses on the porches; nice touch. Really makes you feel warm and homey as you stroll down the street and see the lamp on. Melissa has bikes, beach chairs and towels all waiting for you, too, so you don't need to drag these items along. Oh, and the location was perfect. You are close to everything, but not on the main drag so everything was walkable, yet quiet when you want quiet.

Another wonderful stay at Melissa's! Second time this year after a great weekend with friends in August. Food is always fantastic, as Melissa starts her preparations at 4:30 am, after she frequently entertains until 10pm the night before! Amazing! Love the breakfast and the new gluten free beers. Rehoboth is always entertaining even in the off season. Lots of fun and with her new, upgraded WIFI, sure to keep everyone entertained!

For the tenth year nothing but a fantastic review! How does she keep doing it?? She must be almost 60!!?? She is up before dawn every day, makes an amazing (now all gluten-free, but still tasty) breakfast, tells us what to do for both lunch and dinner (always great referrals) and provides incredible refreshments in the evening! It never stops. GO GO GO!!

This place was just fantastic. All you could ask for in a B&B, beautiful historic home and wonderful rooms at great prices and close to the beach. But, the best part is the innkeeper, Melissa Clink. She's like the best friend you haven't seen in years. There for you when you need her, giving you space when you want it. It's her home as well and it's like coming back home to a place you love. The breakfasts are out of this world, everything you could possibly want or need, and if not, just ask! They say "like brings like" and the guests I met were all wonderful people and had a great time with some of them since I was alone. I was there for a week during off season. Can't wait to go back again!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed perfect!

I have stayed At Melissa's many times, and like always, this was a great time and experience. Was with relatives and friends for the 2013 RB Jazz Festival and could not have asked for better time and accomodations all the way round. There is no bad day at the beach with At Melissa's

We have stayed at Melissa's twice now and having sampled a few B&Bs cannot exclaim high enough about our stays at Melissa's. Over the door the board says "come as a guest, leave as a friend" and truer words could not be spoken. One feels right at home instantly. Attention to detail is foremost to make one's stay the best ever. She caters to all individual needs including totally gluten free with delicious breakfast and snacks. Everything you may need for the beach is provided. Beautiful rooms, wonderful vacation destination, gorgeous beach, shopping galore with many outlets and farm markets...there is something for everyone including just sitting on the front porch with a glass of wine. It doesn't get any better.

Room Tip: They are all wonderful. We stayed in room 1 and room 6. For the fitness center she provides a pass...
