Located equally between Lewes, Delaware and Rehoboth Beach, this Sleep Inn & Suites is only 4 miles away from both beaches. Kids will love the outdoor pool, kiddie pool with small slide and the basketball net in the parking lot. The free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and free parking are also ideal for families.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sleep Inn. The staff was friendly, location was good for our needs, and the rooms were tidy and cute. It was quiet and comfortable. The breakfast wasn't the best, but it was okay and we appreciated that it was offered.
I don't have kids but I can see why kids would like this place. Came here to stay in early October and the weather was still nice. I saw kids playing in the pools (yes, more than one) like crazy and all the parents just talked on the tables next to the pool. Great place for both parents and kids to bond and also enjoy their own adult world and children world.
Breakfast is okay. At this price, I will not be picky about breakfast. Place is clean and right next to the major highway here (no noise in room). Can't be better. Highly recommended.
The outdoor heated pool features a medium-size pool with a depth of 3 to 5 feet, as well as a kiddie pool with a depth of about 6 inches. The kiddie pool features a small fish slide and other splash pad elements. A large pool basketball net that hangs over the pool edge can also be utilized on the regular pool area. Lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas surround the pool area. Pool towels are provided. The pool is open from Memorial Day to Labor day from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
A basketball net can be found in the parking lot somewhat behind the hotel. It's situated away from the roadway, too. Basketballs are available at the front desk.
The Sleep Inn is a short drive to either the Lewes or Rehoboth beaches. Both beaches are 4 miles away in opposite directions. The Lewes beach is situated on the Delaware Bay and offers calm waters, but a fee for parking in the lot. And Rehoboth Beach is situated on the Atlantic Ocean, with a boardwalk and metered parking spaces.
Families will love the opportunity to watch movies on a large screen in one of the conference rooms. BYOM, bring your own movie and the hotel will provide the popcorn and DVD player. On a rainy day, this is a great way to get the kids out of the hotel room for a bit without having to venture too far.
A full hot breakfast with eggs, sausage, a waffle making station, cheese cubes and fruit is available in the lobby breakfast area from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m., daily. Complimentary coffee and tea are also available in the lobby 24/7.

The Art of Smart Timing
The busier months are in the summer but since the Sleep Inn & Suites is located closer to the shopping district than to the beach area it is open year-round.
Lewes, Delaware is located less than an hour south of Dover, Delaware and about 20 minutes north of Rehoboth and Dewey beaches. The Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport, located in Maryland, is about an hour from Lewes and offers connecting flights from Philadelphia or Baltimore. Philadelphia International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport are both about two hours away from Lewes.
A car is needed when staying at the Sleep Inn & Suites. Several restaurants and shopping centers are immediately nearby, but located on the main thoroughfare through town so a car is needed. Walking from the hotel is limited. Families will also need to drive to the beach when staying at this hotel.
For Mom and Dad
Adults will love being a short drive away from the Tanger Outlets and the Rehoboth Beach shopping district.
