“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

Great quiet location, walking distance to beach and local quaint boardwalk. If you dislike crowds this is the spot. Close to crazy Ocean City and Rohoboth Beach. We stayed here in early May. Most of the shops and restaurants were still closed for the season but it's a short drive to Ocean City where you can get everything you need.

Thank you for visiting the "Quiet Resort". We are pleased to hear about your positive experience with our property and that you were also able to find various entertainment options in the nearby town. May is a great month to visit Bethany Beach, just before the rush of the summer season.
We hope you will consider us again for your next getaway.

The weekend of April 25th, I stayed here and was thoroughly happy. The town was bustling with the 25th Ocean to Bay Bike Tour. The hotel was full of cyclists. The front desk offered suggestions for early morning restaurants (we decided to not go to). Our room was clean and comfortable. The housekeeping staff, especially Nellie, was very accommodating. The complimentary breakfast was full on! Scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, pancakes, muffins, cereal, juice, milk, coffee just to name a few. Will most certainly stay there for our return trip.

Nice Holiday Inn about one half block from the beach with a hot breakfast included. They also had free wifi. We arrived early and the reservations clerk allowed us to check in early. The place is a little hard to find using by GPS. Just look for the sign on Route 1.

The hotel is less than 1/2 mile from the center of town. We stayed a couple of days (Sat. to Mon) in mid-April so it was still off season at the beach so parking at the beach was a breeze. The hotel room was large with a separate set back area containing a fridge, sink and microwave and coffee maker--very convenient. Free breakfast was very good-lots of choices. Staff very friendly and helpful. Cute touch: they have soft and firm pillows and the pillowcase identifies which is which! I'm sure the hotel fills up quickly for summer season- so book early!!

Room Tip: Elevator runs very slowly, use the stairs, if possible.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Clara was warn and made us feel at home in her breakfast parlor. We asked for a seafood restaurant recommendation and they recommended "Off the Hook". It was superb! The hotel was easy to find and walking distance to the beach. We will go back again.

Like others I have a place in Bethany-- but because of renovations needed a place to stay. What a nice hotel. The price is right, the people are SO nice, and the room was spacious, clean, comfortable and nice. It is nice to know a hotel like this is near us for friends and family. It is also located in a great spot so you can walk to the beach and to the town center

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Bethany twice now in the off season, recently in Mar. 2014. The hotel lobby and rooms are very clean; there even seems to be a nice scent to the lobby. The breakfast is simple self serve style but pretty comprehensive. There are scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, great biscuits, juices, yogurt, apples,etc. It's frankly just as good as some of the local (but perhaps less fun) breakfast places. The lobby has homemade chocolate chip cookies each afternoon.
What really stands out is the service. Any staff we encountered were attentive and genuine. I left my raincoat and they mailed it to me immediately. It's not a charming inn or B&B but a very good value and nice surprise. We'll return.

How wonderful to hear your recent experience will keep you coming back! The scent you detected in the lobby is specific to our Holiday Inn Express family and definitely a nice welcome touch. We are also pleased to hear you enjoyed our breakfast bar and the hospitality of our staff.
