"Location Great, hotel is old"
The staff was very friendly but the hotel and rooms were very old. There were stained floors, carpets and walls. The parking garage stinks. Overall the location is why I come back to this hotel. You're a close walk to the main street and right on the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"Just far enough off the main street"
Friendly and helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Never,ever stay here !!!"
Air conditioner deafeningly LOUD and blew only HOT air...thus room was stiflingly hot....carpet stained and dirty.....just awful.....awake all night sweating.....Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel. I like being close to the ocean. The weather was beautiful. We had a good vacation. except for tripping and falling in the driveway and scrapping my knee.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was nice, only disappointment was the breakfast - only prepackaged foods, no hot breakfast.Genuine Expedia 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
"Oh the noise, noise, noise, noise!"
The location was great, right on the Boardwalk. The air conditioning unit did not work well. It did not cool the room until the second day of our stay. It's speed would not vary no matter what button we pushed. The unit was exceedingly noisy. We could not sit on the deck because of the noise. We could not hear the tv because of the noise. It had a deleterious […] effect on our stay. Also, the refrigerator did not work well. Our beverages were barely cool. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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 stayed two nights the week after labor day and enjoyed our stay. There is bike rental shop just down the boardwalk and we rented bikes one afternoon and rode north into Cape Henlopen park. The park has a beautiful new bike path that runs right through salt marshes with a number of wading birds. The path includes a long well-constructed bridge. The […] Henlopen Hotel is very convenient to this kind of bike excursion. On the last day of our stay we had to check out of the hotel at 11:00, but the staff allowed us to leave our car in their parking area the rest of the day so we could enjoy one more time at the beach. They have a restroom with showers and fresh towels behind the front desk that they allowed us to use before driving home, so that was a plus. They also let me use their computer to check emails.

"Lovely Location. Loud, noisy air conditioner"
Staff was really warm & helpful. Building is very shabby, with extremely poorly working facility. We will stay elsewhere in the future.Genuine Expedia guest review
"In need of maintenance"
Confusing on room. We expected full ocean view, but ocean was only visible when on balcony. Room and bathroom were small.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with a location that can't be beat!"
My girlfriend and I checked in and were upgraded to a room with an ocean view and king size bed. The folks behind the desk were very accommodating and helpful in giving suggestions of where to eat and fun places to check out. They always wanted our feedback on how our night and where we went...and we were happy to oblige! I would definitely recommend […] this hotel to others and I would come back for another stay.

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, why not go world-class!"
Rehoboth Beach is a wonderful location. The Henlopen Hotel sits at the north end of the boardwalk, too. In front of the hotel is a nice park and small lake/pond. The hotel is on the beach. The area is family-friendly. The nearby streets are home to numerous recently-built beach cottages (large). Also Henlopen Acres is a block away and it's home to some […] beach mansions. The bicycling paths in and around Rehoboth are such a positive aspect to the area. The outlet stores (away from the beach) are a nice diversion. Rehoboth Avenue is your usual beach/touristy location with surf shops, beach snacks, knick-knack shops etc. With all the area has going for it, it would be nice if the Henlopen Hotel were a four star or better hotel. In this era, the hotel needs amenities, such as working Wi-Fi, a pool, an exercise room, restaurant. Read moreGenuine Expedia 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.

Only there 3 days wish we had more time to spend there . Didn't want to leave. Very relaxing . Everything was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel great location"
This hotel is at the end of the boardwalk, therefore, it was not crowded. It is a nice hotel and the staff was nice as well. My only complaint was that the towels and washcloths were hard.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stayed here before and came back!"
Love the location of the hotel. It makes up for the hotel which needs a little TLC. Older hotel, but accomdations were fine. It is easy to see there are areas which need repair, but we will still return. Ocean front room with bacony. Great bathroom with tub and separate shower stall. All you need for the beach vacation. Thanks.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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
"Location location location"
Checked in for 1 night. The room was a good size. Two double beds. The staff was wonderfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, worn rooms"
Right on the beach but there is no pool. Rooms are worn down but clean. We had a "view" of a cement courtyard and the rooms across from us. Not worth the price they charge in the summerGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fabulous hotel on the beach"
Loved the clean, spacious room and balcony. Great location at north end of boardwalk. Desk staff very friendly and professional. Plenty of room on beach which was not as packed as beach near center of boardwalk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok hotel for on the beach, but needs updating..."
The hotel is ok if you are just staying for a night or two, but not more than that. The rooms really need serious updating and the air conditioners need to be replaced with quieter ones. We liked that this hotel is right on the beach, but if we had to do over again we would stay at a different hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's all about the beach"
The hotel was fine. Many things about it were average. But, if you are looking for one of the less expensive hotels to stay at that is next to the beach (as my wife was) it's one of your better choices. Besides the location to the beach, the staff was friendly and the parking was fairly easy. As I said, most else was average. Although, the WiFi was […] terrible for our room. With some hotels it depends where your room is located in proximity to where the hotels strongest signal is. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"On the beach but deceiving."
The picture on the ad is of the building next door. Looks like a run down old hotel in a Great location. The rooms are old. Rusty doors that don't close well. Was afraid someone could break in while we were out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean room, very roomy, nice patio on 2 nd fl."
We planned a last minute trip and had no choices. Wanted a pool, no pool. Small old tv but it worked- not there for TV. It's on the beach so , no walking or parking was a plus. Needs updated and air was very noisy but kept cool.my 8 yr old grandson was in heaven, short walk to arcade!Genuine Expedia guest review
Convenience to the beach, but also convenient to nice restaurants. The hotel is clean and nicely laid out.Genuine Expedia guest review
For such high prices, this hotel is poorly maintained. Cheap shower curtain rod fell down; slippery tub had no mat; elevator buttons don't work.Genuine Expedia 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
"Good location but a tad worn"
I booked two adjoining rooms for two nights. I was told that check-in would not be until 4 and as it turned out I could not get into even one of the rooms until then. 4 means almost a lost day but they do have a nice changing room on the first floor and they did let me park my car on their lot at noon. The rooms needed refurbishing. Old quilted spreads […] need to be chucked for fresher linens. The rooms were clean but we quickly ran out of TP. We also needed more towels. The "ocean View" rooms looked over a courtyard and one could see the sea when on the balcony. The continental breakfast was quit nice with lots of cold food offerings. The staff was very nice!

Was not impressed at all with this hotel. The room was small for the amount of money we paid. No pool, no bar. Needs upgrade. We could only use lobby to get in and out even though our room had the outside access we were told only customers in the condominiums could have that access.Genuine Expedia 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 place to stay!"
We looked for a last minute place to stay in Rehoboth Beach. Our room was updated and beautiful. It faced the ocean. It was nice not to have to carry our beach items very far. The outside of the building needs a little clean up. Although I would highly recommend this hotelGenuine Expedia 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
