This was our second stay at the Bellmoor. We typically rent a house in Rehoboth but for shorter trips, this is a great option. Close proximity to the beach, restaurants, kiddie rides, shops, etc. makes it an excellent choice. There is not the gross "Ocean City" feel to this place that so many beach hotels in the area seem to host. The on site pool and parking is convenient. The property is well-maintained; the front desk staff is very friendly. Our main complaint this time stems from our room choice. We wanted more room for our family and booked the "Gardner's Cottage" which is like a mini two story cottage with a king bed on the upper floor and a powder room, main level has a queen bed, kitchenette, full bath and a sofa. I understand the aesthetic is not supposed to be slick and modern (this is, after all, the beach). But the Cottage felt worn and tired, rather dark and with a musty smell (it is operated by window unit air conditioning which may have had some effect on the poor air circulation). I thought the bed linens were updated but the bathrooms were sad as was the upholstery/furniture. The "main" bathroom (with shower) is tucked into the corner of the kitchen and feels like the size of a bathroom in an RV. Extremely claustrophobic. The powder room on the upper level was just that -- but you had to shower down in the "kitchen bathroom". No tub in which to bathe kids. The worst part about the Cottage was the screened porch. Whatever is covering the floor (indoor/outdoor material of some sort) is disgusting, soiled, perpetually damp and smelly. The entire outside area smelled of urine and mildew. Gross. While we liked the bedroom separation for putting kids to bed early, overall the size of bathrooms and condition of the cottage overall made me crave a guestroom in the main hotel. The one plus is that you have a dedicated parking spot right outside your door--convenient for loading and unloading. Overall, still a fan of the Bellmoor, but would skip the cottage.
