"Oerpriced and Outdated"
Between the loud mini-fridge and the wedding 2 floors above us, the noise made it impossbile to sleep. The bathroom floor was sticky and the room came with absolutely no frills. Hotel also has no amenities. We paid WAY too much for what we got.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach but very noisy A/C System."
Close to beach but very poor maintenance on this 45 year old hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great staff poor quality rooms"
The staff was great. The cleaning staff did a great job considering what they have to work with in a hotel in dire need of renovation . Mold on ceiling above A/C unit, old worn carpeting etc. For $250 a night I expect a lot more-this is $75 at best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is an older hotel on the boardwalk and clean. Room and the bathroom were small, but clean. WIFI was only available from an outside company ($4.95/hour). TV was small screen and ancient. There is a free breakfast which is especially good if you are traveling with children.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyable stay at the Henlopen Hotel"
The hotel is a short distance from the busy part of the boardwalk. We actually liked that distance. The beach wasnt as crowded this time of year. The weather was great a big plus.Hotel front desk were very helpful with guiding us to good restaurants every night and also with directions. We had a suite in the hotel and our grandaughter loved having her […] own room. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable. The breakfast is basic continental with no fresh fruit though.We would recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Awesome location on the boardwalk! The beach in front of the hotel was not crowded since it was on the end of the boardwalk, and the area surrounding was quiet and beautiful. Staff was super friendly and very helpful. Will be staying again next time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice view room confortable and well equiped"
Very relaxing stay, all,commodity for a familly trip ,Genuine Expedia guest review
"ok hotel right on the beach"
the Henlopen hotel has a great location at the noth end of the boardwalk in Rehoboth beach. the rooms were clean and comfortable but nothing special. since you are right on the beach, and you spend most of the day out side, the rooms served the need. we have been there several times , and will go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's got location working for it"
When we first booked the hotel, there were better reviews on line than there were as it got closer. Best word is adequate. The beds were not that comfortable and it's surprising that in this day, Wi-Fi is not available without a surcharge. Breakfast was adequate, but nothing hot. Being at the quiet end of the boardwalk was nice. Will probably check […] into other choices on our next trip to Rehoboth Beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"At 40 Years"
At 40 years, the Henlopen is a well-maintained although somewhat dated facility. Its trump card is its location at the northern terminus of the boardwalk. The adjoining beach is wide and accommodating. Restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance. Maybe it was because we stayed after high season ended, but the staff was willing to let us leave […] our car in the garage after checkout time, and we were able to return to the lobby bathroom to shower before leaving for the day. We would return without hesitation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A lot older than I expected"
I can not even tell you the last time I stayed at a hotel that used actual keys for your room! We were told at check in that we would have to "jiggle" the key a bit, and did we ever. Had trouble getting into our room every time! Very small bathroom and just nothing special about the room overall. Floor was dirty as well. For the money we paid, I expected […] much more. If they did not have the ocean right out the door, there would be no way they could charge what they do. On the plus side, it was conveniently located on the boardwalk so it made getting to the heart of the Rehoboth area very easy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was not as expected for the price. Door to terrace would not open shade at window broken. Spread on bed had spots on it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for the most part"
This is my second time staying at the henlopen and I enjoyed my stay again. Our room wasn't ready until 4pm when we checked in but that wasn't much of a big deal; everything is always clean and its a great hotel to go to while at the beach. We did find one of the women who work at the front desk to be quite rude but other than that it was a good st […] ay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the Beach"
I like to be on the boardwalk to see and hear the beach even in my room and our oceanview room with balcony certainly did that. The hotel is at the end of the boardwalk so for my mom (85yrs old) it was far to walk to the shops in the main drag but for me it was fine and I liked the quiet. The room is simple, a little dated but big with a microwave and […] fridge for no extra charge. AC was strong but noisy. Breakfast is lots of carbs; cereals, muffins, bagels, energy bars, oj, coffee and milk. Would have loved one piece of fruit. I would stay there again because of location to beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is a dump. It is obvious that they have spent any capital dollars since the Hotal was initially built. Rust everywhere, TV's from the 1980's... I can't remember the last time I was in a hotal that did not have flat panel TV's. I don't mind paying a little extra to have a beach view but at some point you need to update your facility. I would […] never stay here again and would not recommend it to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, terrible staff member."
A female staff member was miserable. She went out of her way to NOT accommodate any request we had. She was rude and had zero customer service skills. We would not stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Please, please add fresh fruits for breakfast.Air"
Worth the money. Close to the beach.Nice walk to the boardwalkGenuine Expedia guest review
"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

"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

"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"

"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

"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
