The Brighton Suites is ideal for larger families seeking to be near the beach and boardwalk. Located in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, which is situated between Dewey Beach and Lewes, Delaware this hotel features suites that can accommodate six people.
The indoor pool with outdoor sundeck is also nice for kids who may not be into the sandy beach or just want a break. While the hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi and parking, there are no restaurants or complimentary breakfast available onsite. But because of the hotel’s proximity to numerous restaurants, there are several options for breakfast, lunch and dinner within walking distance.

Rooms & Rates
The 66 suites at Brighton Suites were recently renovated and open to a bright atrium-style indoor hallway. The suites feature separate living and bedroom areas in a crisp white and bright dÃ©cor. The living room area is spacious enough for kids to play or to fit a crib. There are no balconies in any of the suites.
Cribs and rollaway beds are available for a nightly fee. Some connecting rooms are also available.
The king suite features a king bed in a separate bedroom area. The living room area features a sleeper sofa, small dining table for two and a microwave, mini-fridge and sink in a wet bar area. There is a television and DVD player in each room and the bathroom features a bathtub.
The double suite is similar to the king suite, but features two double beds in the bedroom area. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room area, along with a small dining table for two and a microwave, mini-fridge and sink in a wet bar area. Each room has a television and DVD player and the bathroom features a bathtub. The double suite can sleep six people.
Great location but NOISE was a problem! Despite my request for a quiet room they put us in a room facing the street and the beer garden from the hotel across. The first night music and happy and drunk people kept us awake half the night. The second night we were woken up from loud banging on the wall behind us - from the action on bed next door. The third night we finally moved to a more quiet location of the building, only to be woken up at 5 AM from the alarm clock in the next room. It would not stop and I had to go to the reception desk because the night guard did not pick up the phone. It took her 30 minutes to make her way up and unplug the clock. Other than that every flush of the awesome new toilets could be heard from all the rooms around. To add to the misery, the mattress was uncomfortable. It was old and sank in the middle and the mattress topper did not help because it got hot. The pull-out sofa was a true disaster. So there was no avoidance of discomfort anywhere. Needless to say, we did not sleep well for 3 nights!

I'm never very confident when booking a beach hotel sight unseen, so I wasn't expecting much when we arrived at Brighton Suites. BUT, I was very pleasantly surprised! Parking while checking in was an issue. It was Memorial Day, and there was nowhere to park just to check in. So, my husband stayed in the car while I ran in and checked in. They do have parking in an underground garage, which was nice. Once in the room, I was very pleased. I love suites with separate rooms. There was even a door to the bedroom! And CLEAN! The bathroom was spotless. We had a king sized bed, which wasn't the most comfortable, but adequate. The water pressure was perfect! I have long, thick hair and really like the water pressure when I'm rinsing it. That's a problem in a lot of hotels we stay in.
It's located about two blocks from the boardwalk/beach, and they offer towels and chairs to use for the day.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly too!
We really enjoyed our stay at Brighton Suites. We definitely will stay again.
The Rehoboth boardwalk and beach on the Atlantic Ocean are about a block from the Brighton Suites. The hotel provides complimentary beach towels and two beach chairs to guests who wish to use them.
The indoor pool, located on the third floor, is small but has plenty of lounge chairs and tables and chairs. A large outdoor sundeck can also be found just off the pool area, which features even more lounge chairs and palm trees. The pool is about 3 feet deep and pool towels are provided. The pool is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
A changing or dressing room area with showers and bathrooms can also be found just off the pool area. This area is great for guests who may have checked out of their room, but spent the day at the beach and could use a place to clean up before heading home.
There are no onsite restaurants at Brighton Suites and breakfast is not offered. However, there are numerous restaurants that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner within walking distance to the hotel. Coffee is provided in the lobby all day long.

The Art of Smart Timing
Rehoboth Beach is at its peak during the summer months, which is when the Brighton Suites is also at its busiest.
Rehoboth Beach is located about one-hour south of Dover, Delaware and about 10 minutes north of Dewey Beach. The Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport, located in Maryland, is about an hour from Rehoboth Beach and offers connecting flights from Philadelphia or Baltimore. Philadelphia International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport are both about two and half hours away from Rehoboth Beach.
Families are within walking distance to the boardwalk, beach, amusement rides and many restaurants and shops when staying at the Brighton Suites. For younger children, a stroller would be convenient as the sidewalks and boardwalk are wide. A car is needed to venture further away from the hotel.
