“Restful hotel at a busy beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

The Bellmoor Inn and Spa is like an oasis in the bustling beach town of Rehobeth Beach, DE. The property is shaded by many trees and the garden is peaceful with only the sound of trickling
water from the outdoor fountains to listen to. The rooms are handsomly appointed, very clean, with all the creature comforts necessary for a good night's rest after a fun day at the beach...which is walking distance to the hotel. All of Rehobeth Beach restaurants and activities are also walking distance to the hotel. After the beach we enjoyed the beautiful 2nd floor outdoor pool and in the morning a delicious continental breakfast. We loved our two night stay at the Bellmoor and will return again for sure. Only wish it could have been longer.

Room Tip: I think that any room at the Bellmoor is perfect...just depends on your needs

My friend and I wanted a short weekend away and decided on the bellmoor. Sooooo glad we did. The room was pristine! And breakfast staff and breakfast food was amazing. Very freshly prepared.
The spa is to die for! It was everything and more.
I promise you, take a break and go. You won't regret it!

We were very disappointed with our experience at the Bellmoor Inn last weekend! We had such high expectations based on our last visit. This time we were in the Gardens. Boy what a difference. The room was old, the AC unit was loud. The bed was old, and loud. In fact the bed was so loud, hard and tinny that we couldn't sleep at all. We asked for a different room the next day, and the front desk guy said none were available. We asked for a refund of our second day, since we were going to leave, he said no. We were soo upset we just left a day early anyway. Of course we also felt really stupid for spending $450 a night for 2 nights ...one night we didn't even use ...for a Motel 6 experience.

Pretty hotel, nice room, good spa however I was surprised that the hotel didn't have any room service. As well, the complimentary breakfast was average, don't bother with it. I also didn't like not having a fan in bathroom. If anyone uses the bathroom, the smell stays in the room for a while. You can't open windows either. I figured out if I kept the thermostat AC fan on all the time, air was circulated in room. The staff was all very nice, some more knowledgeable about the area then others, but very nice and helpful.
Overall it was a nice stay, clean room and I would return again.

I chose the Bellmoor Inn for the perfect beach weekend with my husband to celebrate my birthday and I could not have been happier with my choice. The service was exceptional and the room was lovely with a beautiful garden view. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning while overlooking the fountain and watching birds dipping and koi fish swimming. Just perfect! We are already planning our next trip!

Room Tip: We loved the garden room.

Thank you for choosing The Bellmoor for your Birthday Celebration, we greatly appreciate it! I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Eating breakfast out in the garden is the perfect way to start your morning. From the fish in the koi pond to the sounds of the morning birds, it is truly tranquil. We can't wait to have you return to stay with us again. Best wishes from all of your friends at The Bellmoor.

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.

Room Tip: I wouldn't rush to choose the Gardner's Cottage if you are picky about bathrooms, mildew sme...

Thank you for a nice stay with you. Everything was pleasant and enjoyable. The cookie time could be extended or extras left out. We had returned by 4, but everything was cleaned up. We did make it one day and everyone enjoyed that. Nice that you vary the breakfasts, but keep some regular things as well. Beach chairs could be available, but not totally necessary. Pool and hot tub were clean and enjoyed by us. Maybe send a complimentary something to the guests in their room. I know you have the regular things like all hotels, but I do enjoy when the hotels give you just something else or a personal greeting with note. One time at a hotel i stayed at they sent daily notes. Also had chocolates at night. Just a thought! Thanks again. Hope to stay with you again.
