Rehoboth Beach, DE
Henlopen Hotel, set on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, welcomes families with recently renovated rooms and oceanfront accommodations with spacious balconies. This hotel’s location is definitely a plus — it’s set smack in front of the beach, but it’s in a quieter area away from the high-traffic parts of the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk. Henlopen Hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, but plenty of eateries are just a short walk from the property.

Buyer beware! What you are seeing on the internet is not what you are getting. What we got was...a "suite" (not even close), oversize bathroom (the grab bar was the bathroom door handle) that is how small it was. The pictures on the wall ,was tape (there was no pictures) and very dirty carpets. The best was getting up to use the bathroom during the night, turning on the light and having roaches scatter. Thank goodness we left that morning. They would have a very nice place there if they would shut it down, gut it and remodel, trust me ~ it needs it.
This is an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Spacious very clean rooms. Incredibly comfortable beds. And amazing views. Only draw back is that with such a wonderful hotel one would expect something a little better than a very simple continental breakfast. Otherwise it's the perfect place to stay. Even with a wedding reception going at the time of our visit it was relatively quiet.
