My husband and I stayed at the Canalside Inn during an impromptu beach trip last summer. We had pretty low expectations, based off the websiste. But it came highly recommended by a colleague- and the price was reasonable so we took our chances.
Firstly, the website does not do this place justice. It is very quaint and decorated well. The rooms and the inn were very clean (which is important to me). The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was sufficient, there was ample parking, and we even utilized the jacuzzi and pool during our stay. Our breakfast experience was fine: we were expecting a continental breakfast and found plenty of muffins, danishes, coffee and juice.
The Innkeeper was present for our arrival and our checkout. And while he wasn't very friendly, he was helpful to us. He provided us with a parking pass to drive down to the beach and offered restaurant suggestions and gave us a map of Rehoboth. There was a (minor) problem w/ our room when we checked in, and once we brought it to his attention it was addressed immediately. I'm actually glad to hear that he wasn't as friendly to other guests, as we weren't sure if we should take it personal or not. He seemed to be pretty much running the place by himself, so we chalked the lack of hospitality up to stress. But then again, if you want a lot of hospitality, it would likely require hiring additional staff, thus driving up the rate of the hotel.
Again, I would definitely recommend this place to others and I would stay again next time we go to Rehoboth for a quick weekend getaway. You get what you pay for, and I think that this was a value.
