So this place is ok. The staff was friendly and the location was fantastic. The beds were also very comfortable and I was able to watch my Fire stick via the TV. I also appreciate having a fridge and microwave. Couldn't use the stove top since I didn't bring my own cookware and dishes. However their housekeeping and maintenance is lackluster. I had to request a bunch of new towels due to the ones in my room being stained or torn. The drawers hadn't been wiped down and the floor was not swept or vacuumed very well (lots of hair from the last guest). The wash cloths are paper thin. Also the AC's constant condensation leaves some yucky muck on the balcony. All of that being said, it got the job done. With better cleanliness standards this could be a great place to stay. But right now, I can't say I would choose this property again based on my level of expectation. But if you just want a place to sleep and you'll spend 95% of your time away, this could work.

Decent room, private balcony with chairs and a table, friendly staff, convenient location, free on-site parking. More details: I stayed here on the weekend of June 5th with my wife. We came here for a beach weekend, and selected this hotel for it's proximity to Dewey beach and Rehoboth beach. Dewey beach is about a 5 minute walk from here, (you're literally across the street from it) and Rehoboth beach and it's boardwalk is about a 35-40 minute walk. But it is a nice walk through a cute neighborhood area. You're also close to several restaurants and bars, we went to Nalu and it was a nice time.

The staff was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were super clean and the floors are updated. Restaurants and beach is in walking distance. The pet allows dogs which was perfect for us to bring our dog on our couple weekend getaway from my husbands birthday.

Very clean. Friendly, helpful staff. Great bay views. Easy walk to the beach. A work in progress but the work is being done!! Restaurants are a quick walk away. This site wants two hundred characters which is annoying. This had been a pre knee surgery escape and this hotel met all our needs

The place was very clean and smelled naturally good, not chemical clean. I loved the floors, and little kitchenette. (You have to bring your own pans!) We were able to make most of our meals, which is just fabulous when taveling with little children. The staff went out of their way to help us on several occasions. The 2 grandchildren, 7 and 3 years old, were just piles of sand after each day of beach fun and the staff just kept getting us more towels and cleaning the floor. Excellent, fun stay, I already booked another trip!!!
