Atlantic Coast Inn
Reviewed May 19, 2012

We loved this hotel! It is located within walking distance to beach, amusements and some restaurants. If you're looking for family fun but don't want the hassle of the boardwalk area this is it! The prices are really low in comparison to other hotels/motels in Rehoboth. Easy drive to Rehoboth or OC. The hotel itself was clean and the staff was very nice. Not alot of ammenities, just the basics. We booked it originally because of the low price and location but inturn have found a great little gem we'll return to each year!

We have been staying here for many years. They have always kept their prices very reasonable. It has allowed me and my family to get together every year for SpringFest weekend without breaking the bank. It's very clean and provides you with all you need for a nice stay at the beach. It's conveniently located. You cross Coastal Highway and you're right on the beach in a few minutes. Centrally located to drive into OC or go in the other direction to Rehoboth. The owner always takes great care in updating the rooms. The rooms are always very clean. Very nice pool. The front desk makes us feel so welcome, especially Sandy who has provided excellent service all the years we have been staying there. It's a little gem not many know about in Fenwick Island. Thanks again Atlantic Coast Inn for a great stay. See you next time :)

Another great stay! Rooms are super clean. I stayed in the king room. Probably some of the best nights sleep I have had in a while, the beds was super comfy. Front desk welcomes you warmly which is an added personal touch. Thanks again. You won't be disappointed when staying here.

This is our 5th year staying at the Atlantic Coast Inn! We don't even think about staying elsewhere.

We stay during peak time, this year was 8/20-8/22 and have always been happy with the service and experience. We decided semi spur of the moment to go so we were lucky that there was availability. We did have to stay 2 nights though.

Our room was nice. 2 queen beds, upgraded larger dorm type fridge/freezer and microwave. AC, TV, dresser, and standard bathroom. Standard toiletries. Coffee maker. They also have King beds, efficiencies, 2 BR. Book early for a wider selection of rooms.

Each room either has a small patio or balcony with 2 chairs for sitting outside. The larger suites have a deck with picnic table.

We had a ground floor room with a small sitting area out the back door. We sat here each afternoon and evening for a break from the beach. It was a lovely place to just relax.

The best thing about this hotel is the location! it is one block from the ocean in Fenwick Island. It is a wonderful family friendly location, with plenty of mini golf, restaurants, ice cream and even a water park next door! We love Fenwick Island b/c it is away from the noise and congestion of the boardwalk in Ocean City, MD but yet is only a few miles away and we can drive or take the bus for $1. it is ideal for families!

The hotel has a wonderful clean pool that makes a nice respite from the hot and sandy beach.

The only complaint i have is that the walls are thin. Not so much the walls but the Floors/ceilings(?). Although i didn't hear our immediate neighbors, i could hear our upstairs neighbors walking across the floor at all hours. But that is my only complaint. If you are a light sleeper like i am, ask for an upstairs room.

Also, there isn't any WiFi.

For the value and location it can't be beat. We started going there before we had children and now that we have a 5 year old we know we will be going to Atlantic Coast Inn for years to come!

Room Tip: We prefer the back building for a quieter stay

rooms are clean, good maid service (carol rocks), nice location. good parking. Had some rude noisey neighbors partying on deck at 2am, called office and they took care of it. We go here every year. Only complaint is that the a/c made weird noises and kept me up and you can not turn off the porch light so lots of light came through even though the blinds were shut.

The room was clean, which is a BIG plus, but the bed was dipping to one side. The sheets were soft, but quite worn. The toilet bowl had stains in it and everything needs to be updated, but for 2 nights it was fine. My biggest complaint is that the water coming out of the shower head smelled rusty and my hair smelled of rust until I washed it when I got back home. If you're trying to save money and don't have high expectations, this motel will do. We were in room 140. It was what I would expect from a motel.
