“Good staff, but the property needs updating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

I never expect much from East Coast beach hotels. If you have stayed in any, you probably know what I mean. I look for safe, clean, basic. Atlantis Inn fits the bill. The staff is very good, and it was clean. I love the location, park your car in the lot and walk everywhere.

The downside...The standard room we stayed in is in desperate need of an update. Cracked and poorly repaired ceilings, old worn furnishings. The tiny bathroom has no ventilation so it gets pretty wet after showering. It would be nice to have some sort of privacy curtain across the sink area for changing when with the whole family. The mini fridge froze everything. As noted by other reviewers, no coffeemaker.

If you have AAA you can get a good discount. I would never pay rack rates here. I hope they invest in updating this property. I've since found some equally priced hotels in the vicinity that have done just that.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and am very happy you appreciated our friendly staff, cleanliness of the rooms and of course our great location!
The hotel is older and we do try to stay on top of things as much as possible but we do our major renovations during the off season.
I sincerely hope the tiny bathroom and having no coffee maker will not prevent you from returning to us on your next visit to Rehoboth Beach.

Great location. Walk to everything. Room was small but clean. Price was reasonable for time of year. Had free wifi but had to re-enter code way too often. Good place to stay if you plan to be out and about most of your vacation.

My daughter and I stayed here after being in Bethany for a few nights at the HIE there. First, I would like to say that the service was excellent here and the maintenance people were constantly cleaning, sweeping etc. It is right on the main drag of Rehoboth, 2 blocks from the boardwalk so in the thick of things. Parking was included which was a plus. The reason I gave it 3 stars is because it is a very old motel. When we entered our room, it smelled like disinfectant, the kind you would smell in a public bathroom. The room was clean, just smelled...The rooms are tiny as are the bathrooms. There is a fridge and microwave that are in the vanity area outside the toilet tub area. The vanity has been renovated with granite and nice light fixtures, but it is small. The other downside is that the corridors are exterior, so when you are in your room, you have to pull the drapes, because people walk by on the way to their rooms. The pool on the 3rd floor was nice, with the pool deck, but if you were on that side, it could be noisy. So in conclusion, if you are looking for a reasonably priced motel near the boardwalk that has free parking, it is adequate.

Stayed there two nights. It would be fine for $70. It was clean. There was no coffee maker. There was no hair drier. There was no flatscreen TV . My closet is bigger than the bathroom. This was a very basic motel. Would never stay there again!

We appreciate your feedback and I am sorry that you feel you did not get a good value for your money.
We are a basic hotel with a great location that is walking distance to the beach, boardwalk, restaurants, shops and amusements. Our rooms are also basic but we have nice new comfortable pillow top beds, upgraded linen and most important they are clean. We do not put hair dryers and coffee makers in the room due to the space available but we do have complimentary coffee in the lobby and hair dyers available at the front desk for our guests. I apologize if you did not get informed of this during the check in process.
During the off season the room rates do go down quite a bit. After Labor Day you can get the same room during the week for as low as $89.95.
Should you decide to change your mind and give us another chance, please give me a call.

This was my 2nd stay at Atlantis. We have stayed in several places in Rehoboth where the ambience is nicer and more appealing -- but there is zero to complain about here, and the location is excellent. You can walk to everything including the beach; there is a pool on the 3rd floor which was very refreshing after our hour at the beach; people were friendly and helpful (let me borrow a menu and bring it back -- check-in and check-out very reasonable); and our cleaning staff was efficient and good too. My roommate felt the traffic was at times a problem; I took an Ambien and knew nothing about that. We will most likely come back some day.

Room Tip: Being on the 1st floor right by where your car is parked makes unpacking/packing easy -- but higher...

The good - Easy to walk to the beach and all the area attractions, they have a small pool / sun bathing area, the hotel is clean (inside and out) and well maintained. The room was small but it didn't seem to be aged. The bed was comfortable. Room service was fast and seemed to be constantly working.

The bad - Noise in the morning! It seemed like every day some time between 7am and 9 am we heard trash or recycle trucks servicing the surrounding businesses. If two people walked by the room door talking, you heard every word they were saying. You don't have a private balcony, unless you book one of the few rooms that front Rehoboth Avenue. If you want to sit outside the room you have to sit on the access walkway and your view is the parking lot. There is no fitness center.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side of the building so you won't have to listen to the trash collect...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience with us! We are happy that you enjoyed our great location and our nice clean rooms!!
I do apologize for the outside noise from the trash and delivery trucks and certainly wish there was something we could do about that. You may want to consider coming to visit us in the off season when there is much less outside activity and the weather is still great!
Again thank you for your review and we hope to see you again!

I enjoyed the access to the beach. It's right off rehoboth ave, just down from the boardwalk. It has a cute little pool and a nice sun deck. I love how close it is to everything I wanted to see. The only problem I had was the small bathroom and the tiny parking lot. :)
