"Beach front doesn't make up for grungy feel."
We stayed for 3 nights, and were definitley ready to leave. For a somewhat pricey hotel that's right on the beach, the upkeep is lacking. I expect to pay more to be on the beach, but also expect the hotel to be nice. The hotel lobby seems to have been recently renovated, and is fairly nice, but the rest of the hotel is worn and old. The bathroom in […] our room might have been renovated 5 years ago. The tile there was ok. We had two sinks, but one of them was VERY slow to drain, and the toilet was not secured to the floor well and moved slightly when you sat down. Although the furnishings were standard and pretty nice, the carpeting was old. The air conditioning worked well and cooled the room quickly, but was so loud that we couldn't fall asleep while it was on. The room got too hot during the night, so we had to turn it on again... and on, and on. The worst part of the hotel was the breakfast room. For such nice real estate and a nice courtyard there at the hotel, the breakfast room was a windowless room with old ugly furnishings, awful lighting, dirty carpet, and nothing fresh - all breakfast items came in packages. I would not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We really enjoyed the pizza on the boardwalk."
We will be back and next time stay longer I had never been to the Ocean and it was great. We also enjoyed the sunset was great. the people were very nice everyone we talked to was very niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had booked this hotel for a list minute getaway. The price was in line with the other hotels in the Rehoboth Beach area, perhaps even lower. We weren't expecting very much by way of quality, considering the reviews. The positives: free parking (albeit very small spots), easy access to the bathrooms while on the beach (even though there is only one […] stall in the ladies' bathroom), free breakfast (continental breakfast including juices, cereals, bagels, muffins..etc), plentiful towels, and located right on the beach. The negatives: outdated rooms (who uses real keys anymore?!), elevators are super slow (we used the stairs the entire time), and the air conditioning was not as strong. Since we were staying for only one night, the negatives weren't really that terrible. I wouldn't recommend staying here for a week long trip, but for a night it's not bad. The proximity of the beach to the hotel and the free parking were really what sold us. The beach is far less crowded towards this end of the boardwalk which was a plus as well.

"nice, clean hotel"
This was a nice hotel -- dated with small bathroom, but overall it was a nice stay. We would have enjoyed our time, it would have been nice to have a pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Older hotel right on the Rehoboth boardwalk"
The hotel is right on the boardwalk which we loved. It is an older hotel, but serviceable. View from balcony was lovely--ocean and boardwalk! Desk staff were helpful but not very friendly. Continental breakfast was okay--would have liked to have water available--both to drink and to wash hands. Great to have parking right in building--walked to most […] of the places we went.

This hotel has 0 amenities including no vent fan in bathroom. When asked they said we have no amenities. We knew it was old but did not look anything like pictures.Unfinished painting on door and definitely not worth price charged. We will never stay there again and definitely will not recommend to family and friends. VERY DISSAPOINTINGGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location. Good value. Will stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Oceanfront Comfort & Convenience"
Henlopen Hotel is a real find. A beachfront hotel right on tbe boardwalk just steps from a liceguarded beach w/ chair & umbrella rentals. Our room on the 6th floor was spacious and recently redecorated. We had a balcony overlooking a courtyard and the beach. The room included a fridge, microwave, & coffeemaker. The bathroom area had a double sink--really […] nice. Housekeeping was excellent. Front desk very responsive. Complementray continental breakfast was ok--a variety of cold cereals & oatmeal, bagels, Danish, muffins, juices, coffee. The coffee was way too weak for our taste, but right next door on the boardwalk is Karma Cafe w/ excellent Sumatran fair trade coffee & tables outside where we took our cereal each morning. And all shops & restaurants were just a stroll away down the boardwalk. We didn't use the car for 5 days! Henlopen is right at tbe quiet north end of tbe boardwalk, but it just takes minutes to reach Rehoboth Ave. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel near the beach."
Nothing fancy but clean. Small room but staff was attentive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, but little has changed in 15 yrs."
Pros: super close to the beach and boardwalk, included parking, private end of boardwalk, nostalgic as it is where my family stayed when I was a little kid Cons: room was very dated, lock/door difficult to operate, no restaurant in the hotel, parking lot is sometimes difficult to park in, a little expensive for what it is--if things were updated then […] I wouldn't have a problem with the hotel.

"2nd visit to hotel"
This is our second year at this hotel. The room lacked a desk and enough chairs(hotel staff found another chair) for three adults to work on computers. Last year we had a desk and small table. The free breakfast is still carb loaded, lacks protein ( yogurt) or low cal milk. We planned for this because there is a refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot […] in the room. The hotel also supplies covered parking, which is helpful because on street parking can be expensive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The place to stay in Rehoboth"
I can't say enough positive things about the Henlopen Hotel. This was our first stay here and, unfortunately, my husband has to be rushed to the hospital our second day. A policeman and a beachgoer were kind enough to take our beach chairs and some personal items back to the hotel for me so I could accompany my husband. When I got back, one of the desk […] employees said how everyone in the hotel management was so concerned, asked how he was, etc. All of our things were safely stored in the back and tagged. The next day, Laura, the manager, called to ask for an update on my husband's condition and showed heartfelt concern for our predicament and spoke with me awhile to calm me down. The bottom line was that everything turned out okay and I left the hotel knowing it would be a hotel I would stay at again. Along with this unsolicited personal touch, the room was great and clean, the breakfast more than ample, and the view from our balcony spectacular. Ignore the negative reviews listed here, folks. The Henlopen Hotel is wonderful and its location is second to none. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"View is the best feature - access to the ocean"
While the view is terrific and access very good to beach and boardwalk, the overall room experience was like 'summer camp'. Basic at best, coffee was good, A/C was horrible - loud, disruptive to sleep and hard to live with at night. Beds were clean but older/hard mattresses from age. The staff was minimal but helpful and pleasant (please put your personal […] phone away when I arrive:) Housekeeping was fine as well. Parking was also a plus - if you want a upscale don't stay here. Dry breakfast was okay but if you remember the old Henlopen and restaurants you'll be disappointed. If you want to spend most of your time on the beach, outside, walking in the nearby parkland then its fine for a short term stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Absolutely love this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach!"
We were at the beach for a three night stay. The room was clean and fairly spacious for a double queen standard. The beds were not very comfortable. The room had a nice size refrigerator as well. We loved our ocean view! We were disappointed not to have wireless access at the hotel, but managed just fine. Continental breakfast was just that. Juice, […] coffee, bagels, muffins. pop tarts and cereal and milk. No fruit! This hotel is located down to one end of the boardwalk so we found the beach to be less crowded that in the middle of the boardwalk and it was quiet in the evenings. Overall, it was a nice stay. If you are looking for a lot of perks, you will not find them here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right at the beach"
Already considering a stay for next year. It was great being so close to the beach and the boardwalk. Plus the desk clerk was so accomodating when we checked in. She took time to show us the room and was very accomodating. Room was clean, good shower. Parking was convenient. Made our summer vacation truly enjoyable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great beach hotel!!"
Very convenient to board walk and beach right out ur back door!! Great views loved the locationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location. Directly on beach."
Stayed here with my 3 kids. Room size was adequate but certainly wouldn't be called spacious. Room had 2 queen beds. Double sink outside bathroom. Refrigerator provided. Small porch with 2 chairs. They give you real metal keys. My son immediately dropped one in the sand but they replaced it, no charge. The breakfast buffet is really lame but better […] than nothing. Just packaged cereal and muffins. Coffee and juice. The beach and boardwalk directly behind. Changing room and bathroom in lobby so you don't need to go back to your room. Parking provided. I would return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We felt like we got our money's worth with a great view of the ocean and a great location of on the boardwalk, on the beach and minutes away from Rehoboth Ave. The hotel didn't have impressive amenities, you're really just paying for the location which is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to everything"
We loved the proximity to the downtown area and it is right on the beach! Having a balcony (and view of the ocean) is a real plus! Nothing fancy, but everything is clean. The staff is friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach & boardwalk"
It was nice to be able to just walk right out on the boardwalk & beach without having to worry about parking & meters. The parking garage right there was nice but not made for SUV's, very tight spaces. The rooms were really clean but definitely needs some updating especially the carpet. I wouldn't recommend getting the Wi-Fi service which was supplied […] from an outside company, it was horrible. Aside from those minor things we enjoyed our stay & would stay again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, great nice staff, great location."
Hotel was great, the staff was nice courteous. Breakfast was not all great but the location and the view made up for it. Definitely a great hotel and will consider staying there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed a beautiful ocean front room that was right on the boardwalk. We were able to hear the waves crashing against the shore all night. The location is excellent and the room was extremely comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
keys - really! Worst continental breakfast ever Too far from the actionGenuine Expedia guest review
"on the beach"
On the beach ... nice quiet area on end of boardwalk. The room was okay, but had a mildew smell at times and the air conditioner was loud. The view from the balcony was really nice .. inside ocean view.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to beach,"
We found the hotel very accommodating, nice continental breakfast, clean rooms and shower available after check out if you want to go to the beach. The biggest drawback was the air conditioning unit- very loud and no thermostat to figure out the temperature.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Below Average Hotel"
1. very old Hotel and poor facility. It felt like we stayed in a cheap motel even after spending so much money. 2. Below Average customer service at reception desk. 3. No facilities on the premises. For example, Gym, swimming pool or breakfast buffet etc 4. Great location. Beach is right outside. But beach has too many rocks once you go in water. […] Not impressed.

"excellent service, great location,"
we loved every minute at henlopen, The breakfast was good, the location north of rehobeth ave. was quiet, but convenient. the room was great the view of the ocean exquisite, I would return in a second.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great Location on the "quiet" north end of the boardwalk. Great side views of ocean. Great access to Rehoboth beach. One free space to park car under the hotel. Very clean guestroom. Non smoking policy on property that most guests obey. No funky mildew/damp smells. However, no fans in bathrooms. Decor dated. Prices raised this year compared to stays […] in previous years. Hotel needs to upgrade noisy heating/air conditioning units. The abandoned restaurant on the bottom floor makes the place feel second rate. The hotel should at least take down the "yesterdays" signs and repurpose that area that used to be outdoor dining. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Can't beat location"
Room and breakfast were not as nice as we expected for the price, but wonderful location on the boardwalk and beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This was a deal for a beach-front hotel....!!!"
I have been to Rehoboth before, so I knew about the hotel, but had never stayed there!! It was clean, convenient, and well-run!! I would make the breakfast nook a little more pleasant for guests---perhaps small tables; maybe more tables on the walk-through for eating breakfast!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
Air conditioner in room was quite loud and did not seem to remove all of the humidity from the room. The hotel location is fantastic and just a short walk to the beach. Room was clean and quality of service was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice location on the beach. Nice and helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel needs overhaul"
I stayed at the Henlopen about six years ago. My stay this past Friday was horrible. The room was old, dirty, air condition was nosey and bathroom looked as if it was wiped down not cleaned. I got no sleep and all this for $300.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location! Location! Location!"
This is an older hotel and it definitely hasn't been updated in awhile! However, the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. It's the location that sells this hotel. You can literally step out of the hotel and hit the beach. The view from the room balcony was spectacular. It's pricey during the season but comparable to other surrounding hotels. […] All and all a great stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent location but could use some updating"
the staff was wonderful a better choice of breakfast foods that were not carbs would be helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice beach hotel!"
Great location at the quiet end of the boardwalk, away from the action, but short walk. Very clean rooms and accommodating staff. Ask for an ocean view. Rooms are very clean, but its the beach - they're not luxurious. Very adequate and fairly priced for the access provided. Lovely park behind the hotel . We enjoyed our stay and would return.Genuine Expedia guest review
THE HOTEL WAS VERY NICE. HOWEVER THE A/C WAS VERY NOISY MAKING IT HARD TO HEAR THE TV AND AT TIMES SLEEP. BUT OTHER THAN THAT NO COMPLAINTS. VERY CONVENIENT TO THE BEACH AND STORES. WE HAD A NICE TIME AND WOULD RETURN AGAIN.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very convenient to all local sights"
We were not very satisfied with this hotel. It appears to be about 20 years overdue for a facelift. Room was not very clean. Had a nice view of the ocean and beach was great. The morning breakfast was just adequate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was a fair hotel."
The hotel was adequate. It was an older hotel. We had a balcony that was nice to sit on albeit noisy due to the air conditioner. The complimentary breakfast was okay, all packaged foods. The staff was nice enough when approached, not overly friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We were close to the beach."
The hotel itself served the purpose we were looking for, a place to sleep. We were pleased with being able to walk right to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location right on the beach."
At first we were given a room with an air conditioner that leaked and saturated the rug. It could not be regulated and remained on high and was extremely noisy. The security lock was literally falling off the wall; it was missing one screw and the other was falling out. When we asked to be moved we were told there were no other rooms.I knew this not […] to be true bc I had inquired about a room with a better view and was told there was one but it was further away from the elevator. When we said this was unacceptable, we got a prompt response and were moved to a much newer looking room with a clean rug replacing the filthy dingy one in the other room. All rooms are supposed to have a view of the ocean, but those further away from the front get barely a glimpse from the angled patio. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It'a OK for location"
Location is definitely great. It's an old-school style with "real key on knob". Ha! I think it's OK, only that $200+ for a standard room is over-priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel was nice, quiet, great location front desk staff seemed As I was bothering them when I had questions Or even when I just came in to get my room and keyGenuine Expedia guest review
