Size of rooms, quiet setting despite location on Coastal Hwy,. less than 10 munutes from Boardwalk and comfy beds should have made this a winner for a quick one night stopover on an 9 hour drive. other pluses for a budget motel were a large refrigerator (which had sticky spill in the freezer compartment) and separate eating area with a table and two chairs.
Unfortunatley, our non smoking room smelled of smoke but not as bad as a smoking room would have been. Had I realized my nightclothes would reek of smoke when I removed them from the suitcase the next night I would have sought redress. However, the front desk clerk was not particularly helpful. He waved in the general direction of the farthest back building when I asked where the room was. This was a looonnnggg building with two rows of rooms, some facing the parking areas and some facing interior courtyard. Our room was on the closer end but he did not tell us that and we spent at least five minutes trying to read room numbers on the second floor.
Our request for a king bed (all availabale at reservation was two double bed room) and first floor were rejected due to the hotel being "totally full." We only observed about half of the rooms, if that, being occupied!!
The fan and a/c worked well and were quiet; the ventilaiton did not reach well into the bathroom and eating alcove, so after my husband showered it was unbearably stuffy back there. The outside balcony was roomy and nice that morning as an escape from the stinky room. I did not want my feet to touch the carpet and there was a large stain on the wall above one bed.
Breakfast was good, just no fresh fruit but there was juice. On check out when i mentioned the smoke smell and burn marks in the carpet the clerk said, oh when people ask for smoking and we only have non smoking some of them do smoke. We should be better about it. i agree!
With the staff attitude and the room smell I felt taken advantage of at $116 even though I did get a quiet room with a comfy bed. It was a Friday night mid May and a race weekend at Dover so perhaps this was the best Rehoboth had to offer with little advance planning. We did enjoy the boardwalk and Dogfish Head Brewpub. Would be willing to pay more for that ambience if we knew the area, but this was our first time staying in Rehoboth. At $75 this motel would be a budget bargain-- for a smoker!
