“Budget Value only for smoker! Non smokers beware!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2010

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!

As other people write, the rooms are nice and spacious. They also were clean. But the staff and service was terrible.
1. Wireless internet didn't work. We went to the front desk and complained. The guy at the desk didn't do anything about it. The next evening we complained to the same guy, who told us that other rooms had also complained, so he was going to call the manager. This means he didn't believe us the first day and was very slow on taking appropiate action.
2. The first day we went to the breakfast there was no coffee, no milk, no juice, no bread. In short, there were only were non perishable items: plastic cups and trays, packages of sugar, prepacked cereal. We asked for coffee. The staff member (the same guy as in the evening!) told us he would make coffee. After 15 minutes he said that the machine was broken. Now I read here that you are supposed to go to the breakfast in the hotel next door on weekdays. Nobody of the staff informed us about this. Lousy staff!!!!!!!

We booked a room for Thursday through Tuesday and PAID IN FULL when we booked the room. We got to the hotel stayed one night, went out on Friday and went back to our room and our room key didn't work. !!! We went to the front desk and they said we had to pay another $87 because we were staying on a Friday night. We showed them the receipt that we were paid in FULL but the front desk staff insisted that they can add charges whenever the area hotels are all booked. This was the craziest thing I ever heard so I demanded to talk to a manager. The mangaer was not in so they got another crazy person that said that even though we paid when we booked the hotel, they still wanted extra $$ because of this being a Friday. After spending over an hour going back and forth, they finally decided to call the hotel manager who finally gave in and agreed that we were paid in full, per the price we were quoted ($129 per night). We never should have been given such a hassel in the first place and we missed our dinner reservations in Ocean City. We went to this hotel for the past 6 years but will NEVER stay here again.

This Rodeway has it all for a great price...............outdoor pool, continental breakfast (cold cereals, oatmeal, toast, muffins, donuts, english muffins, juice, coffee) laundry facility, across the street from and next door to outlets, Cracker Barrel in same parking lot, across the street or close to many other restaraunts such as Outback, A&W, Applebees etc. So much to do in the area from Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey, well under an hour from Ocean City even with quite abit of traffic. We ate everywhere from Ocean City to Lewes, did waverunners in Dewey and Ocean City, 5 minutes from beach, shops, restaraunts in downtown Rehoboth. If you want a lower cost hotel so you can use your money to have fun, this would be a great place. Don't stay expecting an experience of staying at a higher brand hotel. I heard one man complaining about the breakfast...........but he can't expect a "Hilton" experience when paying a fourth of the price! (crazy!) We were very surprised how large the rooms and living area/kitchen were in the two suites. We had a family game night and all 13 fit fine in 1 suite for that. (had 3 rooms) We were happy with the hotel, the few things we needed changed or help with.........all we had to do was ask and the staff or management helped right away. (extra towels, more donuts in breakfast area etc) If you want/need a fancy or large bathroom, you will not be happy here. We figure most of our time is at the pool, beaches, eating out, shopping and having fun, so we would rather spend our money out than stay in a high price hotel when we are only there for sleeping.

Rooms are recently updated, spacious, comfortable. Not luxury living, but it was a great VALUE. Beds are comfy. but I was glad to have my own pillow. As a family of six, the spacious two-room suite was just what we needed! Rooms were spotless when we arrived. It actually is much better than the pictures show. There's a cute balcony or patio in back. Very quiet location, right near outlets. FYI: While in Rehoboth Beach, DO NOT eat at Lazy Susan's down the highway-lousy service, overpriced, under-flavored food. Sounds strange, but the best meal we had was at the IHOP just a couple of blocks down the road. Service was great, big portions and surprisingly great food! During the day, your best bet for a cheap lunch is Subway's $5 foot-long menu. Anytime two people can eat for $5, it's a good thing! Be cheap, take a cooler with drinks to the beach and save big! That way, you might have money left to splurge on a $4.25 soft-serve cone or a tasty, ubiquitous, but overpriced Grotto Pizza. For fun, try a kayak ECO-tour with Coastal Kayak of Bethany Beach, about 25 minutes away. Easy paddle around the salt marsh, little risk involved, lots of wildlife-great staff. I'm from PA, so have never seen sea stars, horseshoe crabs and osprey in natural habitat. My 17-yr-old stated, "I'm not going to lie-I thought this would be lame, but it was really neat." You'll end up with filthy feet, definitely wear the loaner shoes they offer. With coupon from tourist guide, it was $40 per person. This was our splurge.

a 2-bed room with a patio. Ammenities included: swimming pool, mini fridge, microwave, blowdryer, coffee pot with coffee, radio that you could plug your ipod into, and a Continental Breakfast. Met nice employees, clean room, no insect problem. They took AAA and AARP discounts. Short drive to the beach. Worth the visit, will come back.
