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.
This hotel was in a good location although it is not right on the water and the set up is pretty unique to say the least, with its indoor atrium style common area but the lobby does not give it away. The room itself was nice and we had a separate sleeping area, not sure if that is standard. It has a pool and you have access to a gym which is a 2 min walk from the property. Staff was pleasant as well. We had to change rooms due to plumbing issue and the heat was a bit on and off, ( it’s truly winter) but not bad.
We booked through Groupon so didn't know what to expect. We needed a getaway that didn't require driving everywhere. We were pleasantly surprised! The staff was very friendly and offered good advice on where to eat. We were in and out and each time we came back to the hotel we were greeted and small talk ensued. Our room was a suite with a separate bedroom. Everything was clean. The bathroom had an abundance of toiletries and towels. We didn't even need housekeeping to provide more, although they did ask. There was an underground parking lot but we parked on the street because the streets were empty in January. I really enjoyed our stay. Oh, we did try the heated pool but found it a bit too chilly to swim. It was only in the 30's outside though so not surprised about it. Again we really enjoyed our visit and look forward to going back.
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.
