"Hear the ocean!"
It's an older hotel, and that shows in some ways, but it was clean, quiet, and the location is perfect. On the boardwalk but past the madness. Nice view of the ocean from the balcony and if you leave the slider just cracked open, you can hear the ocean all night!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Henlopen Hotel has the feel of a place that has been in the hands of the same people too long who have profited too much by doing too little. Sitting on the boardwalk in north Rehoboth Beach, the hotel is well aware that its location alone guarantees a steady stream of eager beach goers, and it treats its guests and its property as if this were its […] sole recommendation. The beds are old and lumpy, the doors rattle in the wind, the drab curtains and funky carpet...ew. The luggage rack was broken. The coffee maker was stacked on top of the microwave stacked on top of the minifridge. The coffee I used the first morning was not replaced for the second. The touted restaurant on the 8th floor was inexplicably unreachable; the elevator simply stopped at 7. The "provided" continental breakfast was not. Wifi? No. TV? Perhaps 28". The good news? You can see and hear the great ocean from a small terrace outside the rooms, most of which seem positioned to provide this same amenity. But you can go to boardwalk and get the same effect. Stay elsewhere. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"beach get away"
Best part of this is LOCATION-a short walk to the beach. Also can easily walk to all restaurants and shops but is at the end of the boardwalk so isn't noisy. Has free parking-a benefit in Rehoboth Beach. Room was clean and had great ocean view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall good value for a great location right next to the beach and boardwalk. Just less than three short blocks from the downtown Rehoboth Beach. We liked our room since it was divided into two sections so it gave the kids some independence. The hotel was quiet, and had convenient parking below. No gym available. The room service was good, breakfast […] was comparable to others in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I love that it was on the Boardwalk, but away from the noise of the main hub of the City. There was a shower and changing room in the lobby. We requested more pillows late at night and they delivered right to our door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We love staying at the Henlopen. The staff are lovely, the location is perfect and the rooms are clean and in good working order. The only downside is the free breakfast - everything is prepackaged with no fresh food options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"Good friendly hotel very close to the beach"
The Henlopen has a great location, friendly staff, great first level parking, and a terrific complimentary breakfast. The elevators are fast and it's very easy to get from the beach to your room quickly. That's perfect for a family with little kids when there is always something else you need. It's not fancy or recently remodeled but very liveable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff was wonderful !! Appreciated the shower facilities available after checkout . Would stay there again.Genuine Expedia 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!

"Great location, but needs a lot of work"
The staff of this beach hotel was very friendly, but the decor and ambiance is in desperate need of a significant makeover. Big minus is that the pool on premises is reserved for the adjacent condos and with the infestation of aggressive sand sharks off the coast, there are not a lot of opportunities to swim.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overpriced but location was perfect. Rooms were fine and staff was great. Included breakfast was perfect, especially with kids and getting to the beach early.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel on the beach"
My boyfriend and I have stayed here twice this summer. First was memorial weekend and this past time was sunday-monday during the busy 4th of july weekend. We were very pleased both times. A hotel ON the beach! We arrived early both tmes and were allowed to park the car and hop on the beach while I our room was being prepared. The staff called to let […] us know it was available. The rooms had a great view-505 and 414. We loved 414 because it was only 2 rooms away from direct beachfront room. The staff was very accommodating when we asked for a King bed. The checkout was very smooth and we were also allowed to leave the car for a few extra hours to go back on the beach. When we returned, although we had checked out, they let us use their showers and changing room. So the ride back home was clean and comfortable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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
"Good location on the boardwalk and beach"
I do recommend this hotel because it's on the water, at the very end of the boardwalk. There is still plenty of foot traffic but not nearly as busy as just a few hotels down the beach. There is no street traffic to speak of. The hotel is dated and many of the rooms have less than desirable views of the water, if any. Parking is challenging as there […] aren't enough spaces for guests. The complimentary breakfast available is pretty standard, but the food was always fresh and the room was kept clean and orderly. The maid service was good. We didn't go to Rehoboth Beach to stay in our room, so for the purpose intended the room was okay. We also chose the Henlopen Hotel because the rates were better than several others we looked into when we booked last February. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The only hotel I'll stay at in Rehoboth Beach"
I adore Laura at the front desk, she is so professional and had the most calming voice. She makes sure our stay is comfortable. I'll never stay anywhere else. I have been going to Henlopen Hotel for years now and my parents as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent staff and excellent location!"
This hotel is located just by the beach. It is relatively less crowded than the beaches of the other hotels. Staff was excellent and the room was so clean. Even though this hotel is a bit dated, the service completely compensates for this aspect. We were completely satisfied during our stay for 5 days!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful hotel, right on the beach. Lovely help."
We had a marvelous time. Two adults and one 5 year old. However the continental breakfast was more than adequate and saved us much money but it was difficult to use and much too confined to use. Our 5 year old refused to eat in the room, preferring a bench outside. All in all we would return for a longer stay next time. Dr. LaVelleGenuine Expedia 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

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.

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.

"Decent hotel on the Boardwalk"
Hotel with a motel-feel. Very old-fashioned with traditional keys to room, rather than swipe cards. Room was old, yet was ok for a one night stay. Location was superb. Also, I was there for a wedding and I was rather impressed by the 8th floor venue and how well the ceremony on the beach was carried out.Genuine Expedia guest review
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
