"Great location makes up for sub-par hotel"
The location is perfect. You're right on the boardwalk and the room comes with parking. That's why I booked here. That said, the room itself was dated, but fairly comfortable. But it's a beach vacation and you won't be in the room much, so that's fine. My real gripe is with the fact that the hotel doesn't have wifi. Basically, this is a 75 dollar a […] night clean no frills hotel that, because it's right on the boardwalk, gets to charge closer to 300 a night. Good for them. Now use that money to get some wifi.

"On the beach"
About the only thing good about this hotel was that is was right on the beach and it had continental breakfast. The room was nothing like the pictures. Two beds - a night stand, small three person table, very small bathroom. The TV was the size of a computer monitor. Not at all what I expected. BUT right on the beach!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was initially disappointed with the room size. It was different that pictures shown on internet. Don't show the living room area if most rooms don't have one. Or make it clear that rooms with a living room is an upgrade. Be transparent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice location but not with the price"
we spent one night here and a morning on the beach. the location of the best thing about this hotel. the hotel has not been updated in decades. the rooms are not clean and the bedding is old.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"typical beach hotel"
Nice location on the beach. It is definitely a beach hotel, it was clean and the staff was friendly. The only issues was with the appearance. The shower ceiling showed where some water had leaked and had some plaster missing. I would recommend this hotel for families. It was right on the beach and it is the first hotel so you are a little bit away from […] the larger crowds. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel has seen better days. Elevators not fully working. Physical metal keys still in use instead of card keys....really?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Only downfall is no poolGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than last year"
Stayed here last year. Room was in better shape and air conditioning worked fairly well. Still think price is a little expensive considering rooms are a fairly worn and torn, but I was right on the beach/boardwalk, rooms were clean and the staff/service was outstanding. Will probably stay there again unless I find something cheaper offering the sam […] e. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location, Older hotel"
Great location at north end of boardwalk...Park once and walk everywhere. Hotel is older and rooms are a bit dated...but who spends time in room. Front desk staff very helpfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"On Boardwalk and only a few steps from the beach."
So convenient. Parking garage and close. To arcades and restaurants. Great breakfast room with a wide selection of items.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a wonderful stay at the Henlopen Hotel! We were pleasantly surprised to have been upgraded to a beautiful, large ocenfront room! The hotel is located at the north end of the Rehobeth Beach boardwalk...just perfect for those who want to be on the boardwalk, but not have to deal with crowds. We loved the room, the view and the continental breakfast […] was just enough to get the day started right. Add in the very convenient parking, and we couldn't have asked for a better hotel!

"A Tale of Two Hotels"
An older hotel with designs on a return to grandeur, the Henlopen has a serious case of bipolar disorder. How else to explain the lobby and elevator decked out in bamboo paneling and travertine tile, while the carpet in the room is absolutely COVERED in mold? When we complained about this, instead of just getting a clean room, we were moved to an ocean-view […] room we didn't pay for. Nice, but a bit of an over-correction. Even this prestige room has missing wallpaper (not removed, just missing from the original application) and a paint job that a 8 year old would be ashamed of: brushstrokes several inches off the mark everywhere you look (this would be conspicuous in a "rent-by-the-hour" sort of place, but the Henlopen is actually pretty classy). You just don't know what you're going to get with the Henlopen, but maybe it's worth it to spin the wheel...because with all, they are one of the cheapest bookings on the boardwalk. The staff is very pleasant and eager to please. The breakfast was nice, including only shelf stable items but very extensive (at least 40 choices). I just can't get over the feeling the Henlopen hasn't decided what it wants to be yet, and until it does, unwitting travelers will play guinea pig. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Right on boardwalk and gave us a place to sleep. Just what we needed. They let us check in early. They also allowed us to keep our car there for a few hours after we checked out so we could go to the beach one last time. Also had showers available in the lobby to rinse off before going home. Very helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is old but they do a good job at keeping it as nice as possible. It is unfortunate that the pool is only for condo residents and that the restaurant below is no longer opened. The continental breakfast was well stocked and plenty to eat. I loved that we were able to use the shower facilities on check out day so that we could enjoy another […] full day on the beach. Very nice and quiet end of the boardwalk- we will return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location Location Location"
This hotel is ideally located at the north side of the Rehoboth boardwalk - still a short walk from all the action, but a bit removed from the craziness and the crowd. It's not the most stylish or updated place, but the staff is wonderful. And - Free breakfast! Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is just yards from the beach. Parking in underground garage and a lot across the street (I believe). From the sixth floor oceanfront room we could watch the surf roll in from the table and chairs area (e.g. did not need to go out onto the balcony to get a glimpse) and watch the sun rise from the bed. Desk personnel friendly. Hotel is older model, […] the outside hallways presented as a little worn. But the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was mostly packaged, grab-to-go items (bagels to yogurt) Rate was reasonable, a good deal for the area. I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"good, will go again"
Memorial day weekend. Room is with balkony and partial view of the ocian. Good enough for me as you are at the beach anyway. Room had a fridge, microwave and coffemaker. Breakfast included into the room rate. Enough parking for everybody. Very nice stuff at reception and very sweet breakfest lady. Room has some imperfections here and there but this […] is very insignificant compare to all conveniences the hotel provides. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was really perfect for what we wanted. Great location - hotel staff was great. Parking was convenient, the breakfast was nice, and there was a good bathroom/shower facilty to use even after we checked out. We were pleasantly surprised. The room wasn't particularly exicitng - the paint was weird and the pillows were terrible - but the room was clean […] and just fine for what we needed. We will definitely be back.

This hotel is in a good location with easy access to the beach, shops, and restaurants. The facility is a bit old, rooms were clean, and beds were comfortable. The ground were simple. Staff was very nice. Parking is included, which is a premium in Rehoboth.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great views of the ocean. Both sides of the room have beach views. One on the balcony and the other at the rooms front door. If you love the sound of the ocean and the splash of the waves then you will enjoy this Hotel. Its within walking distance of a cluster of places to eat. Its a older Hotel but clean and pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
I am a migraine patient that was looking for a quiet place place to stay and booked my friend a room next door. We only stayed one full day and they were pressure washing the courtyard. It was awful and ruined my whole stay. Even the next morning before we left we thought we'd have afew minutes of peace and quiet and the guy came over and told us he'd […] be doing in front of our porches and we'd have to get off. Neither one of our a/c and heater units worked correctly and the maid service was horrible. They didn't give us enough toilet paper and replace our coffee and cups, and we had left a decent tip the day before. I really would like a partial refund. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Our great overnight stay at the beach."
We often go to the beach to stay overnight. We have stayed at many different hotels. This was our first stay at The Henlopen. The front desk staff was very pleasant. We arrived prior to check-in to spend some time on the beach and we were permitted to park in their parking deck. They also had changing rooms and restrooms available to us to change for […] the beach. They called us when they had our room ready which was prior to check-in time and then to our delight, they upgraded us to an ocean front king bed room!!! When we got to the room, it was wonderful! It had a tub and a separate shower, a table and chairs in the room and two chairs and a small table on the balcony along with other features such as a refrigerator, kitchenette and great climate control for the room. The balcony was great it was the biggest balcony we have had at any other hotel. Everything was very clean, our wake up call was on time and the sunrise from our balcony was out of this world. We will definitely stay at The Henlopen hotel again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK. But WAY overpriced"
Minimal amenities. OK comfort-wise, but way overpriced. "Breakfast" was a joke. Microwave your own frozen mini-sandwich? Really?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the beach"
Staff was really friendly and accomodating. However, no wireless internet in the hotel room - and you didn't have the option of paying for it to get it in your room. I couldn't even get service on my cell phone to make a phone call either. Not sure what was up with that ..... Room was fine, and in a GREAT location - you can walk right on the beach! Only […] thing with the room was that you could hear the person in the room above/next to you. Overall, a good place to stay if you want to hang out at the beach for a couple of days.

"Great location, awful rooms"
It's amazing this hotel can charge what they do-I guess it's the location, right on the beach. The rooms are pretty awful-like they haven't been renovated in decades. The booking promised a balcony-instead our room (2nd floor) opened to a big non-private cement rooftop. Breakfast (included) consisted of poptarts and other packaged items. Disappointing-hope […] the management decides to bring this hotel into the present day, since the lovely location is wasted on this defunct property. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

My family and I had a wonderful experience at your hotel. Staff was very friendly, room was clean, and it was a great location at the end of the boardwalk. I would definately recomend it to others and I would love to stay there again myself.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful ocean view without ocean view price!"
I loved it. the staff was great, the room clean and the location super. I was able to lie in bed and watch the waves and the mile long boardwalk was right outside the door. I would definitely stay there again. Only issue - the beds were advertised as queen but seemed more like doubles - not terrible but not comfortable for two.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hangin' at the Henlopen"
This is an old hotel, currently under rehab but it has a long way to go. The continental breakfast was so minimal that we went "down the road" on our second morning. Wi-Fi was available only in the lobby, the staff saying that the rest of the hotel would be served soon by a new IP. Location and views were good, but it falls far short of its listing […] on Expedia. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location Nice size rooms"
Very dated in many ways Heater/ air conditioner very inadequate.....and cold air leaked in from outside.....we had to cover the unit with a blanket. Bath tub drained poorly. Overall cleanGenuine Expedia guest review
The Henlopen hotel was everything we were looking for. A cheap hotel with ocean view! We stayed over one night just for an off season getaway. It was cheap and clean and the perfect spot. In the morning we sat on the balcony and watched the dolphins swim right by! The hotel is at the end of the boardwalk so its quiet and not near all the hustle and […] bustle but its a close walk to all the shops. The staff was really nice. There was a wedding when we were there, they made sure to warn us and asked if we wanted to switch rooms to be farther away from the noise. Overall it was a great place to stay and we will absolutely be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beach in the backyard"
This hotel is literally steps from the beach. It's clean and all except for the hard mattress very comfortable. Great value off season. Close to all the fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
Right on the beach. Hotel was adequate. We did not have remote control for our tv and we're told that the worker that handles this wasn't working that night. Light bulb burned out on one lamp and some fuzz blew out of the shower drain when we first ran the water. These were all things we could deal with as we were not there for the tv, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"This hotel has the perfect locale for me."
This hotel is so close to the ocean I can hear the waves at night - better than a lullabye. There is a continental breakfast and a coffee maker in the room. Also fridge and microwave - perfect. Close to the action, but not on top of it with all the noise.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Old but clean"
The hotel is dated but is very clean. The staff was very pleasant. The location of course, right on the beach/boardwalk is what it's all about at this place. A little musty smelling rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
