“Planning our return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I loved the location. Family of 4- it was easy to get the 2 kids to walk to the beach and out to dinner without complaining. Room for the most part was clean (sand and pebbles in the corner). pool was nice and clean. We can't complain about anything! As for what would make the experience nicer....
1- I was jealous to see the umbrellas and chairs (assuming they were free to use) from the neighboring hotel. We sat in the sand under the smallest umbrella on the beach! We only go to the beach once a year and stay 2 days- I don't find it a necessity to purchase them just to store them at home!
2- a sign that says towel service only or access to wash cloths too.(towels were on the pool deck) We made our own beds, kept the room clean and didn't need anything but towels to shower the next day. We stopped at the front desk and asked for wash cloths.
3- bigger refrigerator would have been nice. We were able to get everything crammed into it but I left out the water bottles. we had to take ice onto the beach to cool the water bottles.
4- maybe offer an extension fee for parking.... I would have liked to stay longer the day of checkout but hate having to pay the meters so much to park. We left just before 1pm as we were asked to. There were alot of extra spaces when we were packing up early in the morning.

With all that said, we all made the comment- we want to come back to this hotel again next year!
My son was extra happy.... He was spending his Birthday at the beach this year!!

Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we greatly appreciate your feedback. We are so glad that you & your family enjoyed your stay with us. You son is truly lucky to have spent his birthday at the beach! I appreciate your recommendations as we are always looking for ways to improve our service. As far as parking is concerned unfortunately we only have enough spots for one per room, so we have to be strict with our parking policies. For further reference, there are beach rental stands on every street that rent large umbrellas & chairs, which many guests take advantage of. Everyone here at The Admiral looks forward to seeing you & your family again. Best wishes!

Just off the Boardwalk and around the corner from lots of restaurants and shops, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean - I thought the room was small as well as the sink area that also had a microwave on top of the 1/2 fridge - not a lot of space for 2 women (one teen) and their stuff. We slept well, and could keep snacks in the fridge. We enjoyed ourselves and felt comfortable.

This is the second time I've stayed at the Admiral. It was a combination business/family trip. Short walk to beach,boardwalk,dining and shopping. When my daughter came for the day, they let her park in the garage even though you only are supposed to have one car. Nice indoor pool. AC is rather noisy.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property, we greatly appreciate your feedback. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and found our location to be perfect for you & your daughter. There are times throughout the season when we do have more parking availability & are able to make exemptions to our one spot per room policy. This is purely based on our availability & we do our best to accommodate all of our guest's needs. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future! Best wishes from all of us at The Admiral.

We just got back from a four night stay in Rehoboth. The Admiral Hotel was a wonderful home base for us. The location can't be beat, right off the boardwalk and just a block from Rehoboth Ave. The rooms were large enough for the four of us and our two young kids enjoyed the indoor pool and sun deck. We would definitely return. I only wish there were hooks in the bathroom to hang up towels.

Room Tip: We faced the parking lot, very quiet. Rooms on high floors have partial view of ocean, but no balcon...

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am so glad to hear that The Admiral was able to make your family vacation memorable. Like you said our location is hard to beat, just steps from the ocean. It is perfect for families with children as you are only a couple of steps to your room. Next time you come be sure to check out our 6 person apartment which offers a large & spacious suite complete with a full kitchen. We will definitely look into the bathroom hook recommendation that you made, so thank you very much for that suggestion. Everyone at The Admiral looks forward to you & your family returning to stay with us!

This was our third time staying at The Admiral, and we will be back! The room is always clean. The beds are comfortable. The pool is indoors, so when it was raining we could still swim & play (towels provided). The boardwalk location is one block left of the main strip. So perfect because, when you are on the beach you are close to all your favorite beach food...Gratto's pizza, Kohr's frozen custard, Thrasher's fries, etc! And you are close to the public restrooms so, no dashing all the way to your room or three blocks away! This sounds weird, but we have a 3 year old daughter that doesn't give us a lot of warning when she really has to go! The staff is very helpful and they have free wifi!! The maids are quite and don't knock on the door when you have your "do not disturb" sign up. Parking is easy and free! Great experience!

I have stayed at Admiral Hotel everytime I visit the beach and my stay is always comfortable and the staff is very nice. It is just steps from all the excitement on the boardwalk.
Only thing I would say negative is they do not provide enough bedding. I had to go buy another
blanket to put on the bed but I did find out they will give you an extra blanket if you ask. The other negative thing is their coffee pots leak on the counter.

Other than that I would highly recommend this hotel! The price is right! I love the pool as well!
An added addition would be a small workout/gym area for us who workout!

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us & that you found our rates to be very affordable. We do provide extra bedding upon request & any of our housekeepers or front desk staff will be more than happy to provide them for your on your next stay. In regards to the coffee pot leaking one of our maintenance personal could have fixed or replaced the unit for you. The important thing is to let us know immediately when an issue like this arises so we can fix it immediately for you. We hope that you return to stay with us in the near future! Best wishes from all of us at The Admiral.

Arrived June 5, 2013 for seven nights. Love the location.We are managers of a chain hotel and last year stayed at one about two miles in land for 39.00/night. the saving sounded great.Stayed two nights and ended up going to our old friend The Admiral and asked to check in..Welcome Back..Between trying to find parking space,$1.50 /hr parking and so on..it's worth staying at The Admiral..free parking..ocean view..walk all over Rehoboth..leave car parked..too good..the hotel recently remodeled the guest rooms and out side..Good Job Admiral!..We will be back this Fall save us a room..for the buck you cant beat The Admiral..your friends in the Pocono's

Room Tip: Look for the ocean the view is worth it
