"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
"Nice view.. Staff could be friendlier"
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
"Great hotel, right on the beach!"
We had an excellent experience! The staff was wonderful; the room was clean. We loved being right on the beach and close to the boardwalk, but far enough away that it was peaceful to just sit and listen to the ocean at night. The desk clerk gave us great dinner recommendations and was knowledgeable about the area. We will definitely go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel on the beach in Rehobeth"
The hotel was exactly what I was looking for. We could sit on our balcony and see/hear the ocean. You literally go downstairs and walk a very short distance to the beach. The free breakfast is all packaged goods and the room it is set up in is just ok. The hotel is at the end of the boardwalk, so nice and quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location, but at what cost?"
The location of the hotel is ideal. The price of the room is a bit high, in my opinion, considering the subpar quality of the room itself. The lobby is beautiful, but once you are in your room and really look around, it's sort of cruddy. The bathroom is insanely small (they don't even have a fan), the lights flicker, the TV is from 1960 (not really, […] but it's smaller than my computer monitor). The breakfast room is small, with only about three tables, and the items provided are not that great either. Hotel staff are all a bit ...odd, too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
our room was very dirty, lock on door was a joke, the screen for the balcony would not slide. The sliding door was installed wrong and the screen was on the inside,but no matter the air conditioner was so noisy on the balcony you didn't want to be out there anyway. The room would have been overpriced at $50 per night no matter the locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel location is wonderful as located right on the boardwalk just steps from beach, dinning and activities. Hotel is old, staff is not friendly or helpful. Needs a major overhaul.Genuine Expedia guest review
Right on the Beach and boardwalk. Perfect location. Hotel was dated but had everything you need.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"beach and shops"
enjoyed the area> biggest negative is that air condition was very poor it was a wet lite cool in room and very loud running which it ran all the time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on the beach!"
The stay was very pleasant. Walk from hotel to beach. We left our vehicle in the garage and walk everywhere...from breakfast to dinner to bars. We will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, great staff and convenient location."
Overall a great stay for the price. It's 2 bocks from all the craziness and just far enough up the boardwalk to be in a perfect location for added peace and tranquility. Staff, room, etc were all most pleasant! I would highly recommend this hotel to travelers.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Some of the pictures were deceiving"
Over all the stay was good. But some of the pictures used in the hotel ad were of the condo's and not of the hotel. It showed a bigger room with a big eating area. I am sure the pictures were of the re modeled condos and not the older smaller hotel room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Front desk service was rude and cursory ... Need to install cameras in parking lot and key areas to prevent theftGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only perk is on the boardwalk"
Front desk staff was not informative or welcoming. They were not busy and they made no recommendations of things to do or see in the area. Room keys are actual keys with no key chains, could be easily lost. Air conditioner made loud banging noises. Toilet ran all night. No exhaust fan in the bathroom. No restaurant or bar in the hotel. No guide in the […] room to indicate what channel is what station. Parking garage was awful with big columns are not easy to navigate. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel at end of boardwalk on ocean"
We had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is older but was very nice and even though the balcony was on the side and not ocean view, we could see the ocean from it. Great location, nice and quiet, far enough away from the main attractions but close enough to enjoy a stroll to town. Loved it!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach"
We've stayed here before so the experience was what we expected. No perks. Just a room with a great view of the ocean at an affordable rate.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a nice hotel for the price. The desk clerk was very unfriendly. The second day there we found a pair of SOMEONE ELSE'S underwear in our bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Grand old Hotel"
Looking at the history of Rehobeth this was probably the Grand hotel of Rehobeth in it's day. It's still a great location and very professinal staff but somewhat beat up due to age, the elements and newer and hipper places to stay. Would stay again and I would image it will eventually be demolished and rebuilt into another complex or (God Forbid) turned […] into a parking lot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the ocean and boardwalk shops."
Room was clean. The hotel is at the far end of the boardwalk, but easy walking to shops and food. Restroom and shower just behind the lobby was really nice. You didn't need to go all the way to your room to use the restroom while you were on the beach. Also, you could shower off the sand before going to your room or walking on the boardwalk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"On the boardwalk"
Our room was very clean, the service was exceptional. Our bed was very comfortable. Being located on the boardwalk was very convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice a clean hotel. Check in was late and many people were waiting in the lobby to get access to their rooms. When asked how much longer receptionist was rude and said she had no idea. Quiet hotel and good location. Easy access to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly."
Truly a case of the good, the bad, the ugly. For every good thing there was a bad thing. GREAT = PARKING. One space per guest room with in-an-out privileges. Good = Location. On the boardwalk. About a .2 mile walk to Rehoboth Ave. which I liked. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to be quiet and to walk off the ice cream cones. Good = Clean. […] Given the condition of, and location of the hotel it's a challenge. Good job. No sand! Good = Some Updates. Good = Staff. One person was unbearable and highly inappropriate. All of the others were nice, room staff particularly. Bad = AC Unit. OMG!! Sounded like a jet taking off but it kept the room cool. Bad = Beds. Far too soft for my taste but they were clean. Believe me I checked. No bed bugs. No sand fleas. No hairs. So good job. Bad = Breakfast. Whew! Don’t bother. Bagged bagels, warm 2% milk, Nutri-Grain bars. THE UGLY = Well, everything else. It’s an old hotel that has been pounded by tourists and the salt air. Tube TVs. Vinyl roll down shades. Lots of rust. Few updates. Old carpet. Old furniture. VERY old lighting. My favorite, wait for it, REAL KEYS!! All of these things are ugly, but, functional. I DO NOT recommend for families, couples, or the business traveler, but a couple of friends that just want to get away, do the beach thing and drink, ehh, then okay. Don’t cancel your trip if it’s the only hotel that meets your schedule. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay on route 1 and save your money"
I was disappointed with the hotel. Wouldn't let us check in any earlier than 3 pm and when they did they had us in a room with one king size bed (wrong room). Room has no view and was small. Hotel has a pool but only condo owners can use the pool. Water pressure was horrible and hotel is out dated. Hotel Room cost over 200.00 and was not even worth […] 100.00. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"I always come back!"
The Henlopen hotel is the best old school, but charming, hotel on the boardwalk. It's not the place for someone looking for the regal 5 star experience. But if you wanna enjoy hallways that are wide open to the winds and sounds of the beach, then this is for you. The staff is always nice and talkative. We always get there early(check in at 3), and we […] always leave the beach late(you check out at 11). But they let you park early, and they let you use their little bath houses even after you check out. I just stayed their a few nights, and after I told them that the door wouldn't really close all the way, they bumped me to oceanfront! The clerk said,"Yeah, they're replacing the doors". And that the door just wasn't finished yet. He looked a little embarrassed, then asked if I would mind an upgrade. It's the second time where something wasn't right on their end. But they always accept responsibility and treat you great. They really seem to understand how to make people come back. I always do! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great balcony view of the ocean."
Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Henlopen Hotel this year. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Most of all we loved our balcony view of the ocean. Having to walk only 15 yards from the hotel to the beach was perfect for our family. The front desk attendant was very accommodating to us when she said we could keep our car parked in the […] hotel garage even after we had checked out so we could do a little shopping before we left. We will definitely be staying at this hotel again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
our stay at this hotel was really great. despite thebad weather the day we arrived we were very comfortable in our room. beds comfortable and rooms very nice, especially the view of the ocean off the terrace. u couldnt ask for a better oceanfront location. The complimentary breakfast in very nice and clean cut. we have been coming to rehoboth beach […] for many years and i would say this is the best hotel to stay. We also were able to speedwalk on the boardwalk in the morning which was awsome. its great for all ages and the staff is very friendly and accomodating. i really cant think of anything wrong to say about this hotel. They also have nice size clean refrigerators and microwave and coffee machine in each room. next time we will make our stay a little longer. the location is the best and this price is right!

"Great Location, Friendly Staff, Okay Rooms"
If you don't plan to spend a lot of time in your room, Henlopen is a great find. It's right at the end of the boardwalk which means you have easy access to everything without a lot of foot traffic out your window. The guy working front desk was outstandingly friendly and even offered to let us keep our car parked for an extra hour or two after check […] out to avoid the meters while we spent a little more time on the beach. Only complaint that can really be made is that the room is in major need of a redo - the door still has a traditional key to open! If they updated the rooms and there was a pool on site, this would be the best place to stay in Rehoboth Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"better than the ratings it recieved"
I would stay here again. Rooms were clean. Had ocean view balcony. Front desk let us check in early. Its right in the beach. Everyone was friendly. And the breakfast had a ton on variety. Yes, the TV and somethings could be updated, but you are at the beach, so you are not in your room muchGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night stand"
The front desk staff were great. The hotel was not. They had replaced a lot of the doors to the rooms and failed to install the hardward on the door frame. As such, you could easily open the door with a bent object. More concerning was a room key we found on the floor of the room. If they are not accounting for the keys dished out, someone will end […] up robbed or hurt. I guess it also means no one vacuumed the floor. We didn;t make coffee becasue the pot was nasty. The bed was very comfortable and they upgraded our room (great view) due to the door issue. This hotel is 2 stars. Rightly so. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Definitely great hotel for families."
I have been using the Henlopen hotel for many years - the quality of service and friendliness and efficiency of the staff is excellent. Wonderful for families. That's why I choose the Henlopen.Genuine Expedia guest review
"well-priced comfortable room right on the beach"
This was a very nice hotel stay. The location is fantastic - right on the boards and a short walk to the avenue, yet it is definitely on the quiet end of the boardwalk, and very accessible to the beach. As others have mentioned, the hotel is on the older side and could use a face lift, but everything was comfortable, clean, and worked well. The age […] issue was superficial only. The AC was loud as others also mentioned, but we sleep with fans so it was just white noise to me. It did prevent us from having a conversation in the room, but we weren't hanging out in the room too much anyway. The continental breakfast was ok - it was all pre-packaged food - cereals, oatmeal, nutrigrain bars, bagels, pop-tarts, muffins, milk, juice, hot beverages. It wasn't anything to write home about, but what do you expect from a free continental breakfast? And the wrapping means you can take the food out on the beach for later.

"Nice room with a amazing view!"
What can you say about a nice room with a stunning view of the ocean. The hotel has some minor downsides just like almost every hotel in this price range. This one is conveniently located on the boardwalk. It was great to take a short walk down the boardwalk to the center of Rehoboth and enjoy all of the fun shops and restaurants. Even if you can't […] swing the cost of the ocean view room it is still with staying there based on the great location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We recently stayed at the Henlopen Hotel in Rehobeth. It was perfect for us. Located at the end of the boardwalk where there wasn't a lot of noise and yet very close to the shops. We loved sitting on the oceanfront balcony drinking coffee in the morning and watching the dolphins. I loved that the room had a separate tub and shower - perfect for us. […] I love to soak in the bath and read - so relaxing. We had to leave early due to an emergency; but we will be back for sure. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"beach front hotel"
The hotel was alright. It is right on the beach and close to all the board walk attractions! The location was the settling point. Although the hotel was not 5 star we would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
