Historical Traveler Reviews Delaware Inn at Rehoboth Rehoboth Beach
We Can't Wait To Go Back!
My husband and I spent the night of July 26th at the Delaware Inn and loved every second of it. Sharon could not have been more welcoming (and the homemade dessert she served in the evening was a real treat.) The Inn sits on a quiet street, just a couple blocks from the boardwalk, beach, and shops. The location is perfect because you can park your car and never have to move it. The beach towels, umbrellas, chairs and bicycles were a great added touch. Our room was spotless. We had a private bathroom just across the hall from our room, which worked out fine for us. Breakfast was wonderful and relaxing on the porch afterwards was even better. I tend to be particular when it comes to hotels / inns and I can honestly say that this property exceeded my expectations. We are already planning to return next summer!
Beach and Breakfast
It was our second year at the "Delaware Inn @ Rehoboth". It exceeded our expectations. Sharon is a very gracious host. She has been busy with renovations since our last visit. The front porch is now open and very pleasant to sit on at night and meet other guests.The beach is only a short walk and everything is provided to borrow ( beach umbrellas, chairs, towels).
Adult and Adventure Friendly
Lots of good things to say. Sharon is a caring, down-to-earth woman -- serving from the heart not as a business person. The beach towels and umbrella were put to use as were the bikes Sharon makes available to guests. Great staff and excellent breakfast.
The most pleasant B & B we've ever stayed in--the owner is a delight, the food is incredible, and the decor is gorgeous. You cannot go wrong by visiting this gem! A+++++
Leave the Worries at Home
The Delaware is a lovely house just two blocks from the beach, And the restaurants, shops, and activities are all within walking distance; park your car and don't move it until you're sadly heading home. Sharon is a lovely and gracious host - we felt right at home at the Delaware House. The house is nicely decorated, and our room was very nicely furnished -and nice soft sheets and towels. Our dedicated bathroom was right across the hall - though some rooms share a bathroom. Extensive remodeling has opened up the front porch - which is great place for socializing with the other guests, and just watching the world go by. Chris served a lovely warm breakfast every day for us - such a nice way to start each day and so much better than the standard 'continental breakfast' that the big chains serve. Sharon also provides all the beach gear - which will save you the frustration of hauling sandy gear around. She has beach towels, umbrellas, chairs, and bikes! Leave it all home and keep all that sand out of your trunk! In summary, we highly recommend the Delaware Inn!
Charming home with wonderful country decor. Our room was charming and our private bath was spotless! Just may be the cleanest place in Delaware! The breakfasts were original with plenty for everyone. The inn keeper, Sharon, is a wonderful, thoughtful person and made us feel like we were visiting an old friend.
We are from Catonsville, MD where the homes have alot of character including wood floors and porches and wonderful architecture. The Delaware Inn mirrors such.
Great location and certainly within walking distance to downtown and a block and a half to the boardwalk. Internet access is available in the living room via a new Dell pc.
We will be back and we agree that we have found " our place " to stay in Rehoboth Beach.
We stayed at the Delaware Inn for a weekend in July and had a wonderful time. The inn is cool, clean, comfortable, and quiet. The rooms are peaceful and nicely decorated. The inn is in a prime location, only a block and a half from the boardwalk and within walking distance of a lot of great bars and restaurants. We parked the car at the inn and didn't have to move it all weeked.
Breakfast was very good, and despite what other reviews have said, Sharon did keep some breakfast out past 9:30 and even let my husband have extra.
After we checked out on Sunday, we were allowed to park the car there until 3:00 and borrow chairs and towels for the beach. This was wonderful as we were able to enjoy another day at the beach with no worries.
Sharon is the nicest!
I've stayed at the Delaware Inn several times now, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. First, it's just a couple of blocks from the beach, but the the most important reason to stay is that Sharon, the innkeeper, is the super-nicest lady ever. I will make sure she gets all my business. She's totally interested in making sure your stay is enjoyable, and will recommend places to go to in town, to eat, get a pedicure, whatever. The inn is nice and comfy, too.
Very good service
The Delaware Inn has many great features. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful - we asked where we could do laundry and she did it all for us with no charge - and always on hand to offer advice. The location is really good - close to the beach and also to lots of shops and restaurants. The rooms are clean. There are lots of free beach supplies and bikes - though there are many fewer bikes than guests, so you may not always be able to use them. There are plentiful large, soft beach towels, and wine and cheese every afternoon.
Despite all these great features we were a little disappointed with our stay at the Delaware. I haven't stayed anywhere else in the area so can't compare its value with other places, but we paid $140 per night for a very small room with hardly any room around the small double bed - hard to fit our suitcases in! - and a shared bathroom. Breakfast stops pretty early given that you are on holiday and all food is put away on the dot, so no coming down five minutes late. Think you can skip breakfast and have a lie-in? No chance - the cleaners clean immediately breakfast is finished and make quite a bit of noise doing it (no Do Not Disturb signs available, and in any case the entire corridor is used for dirty laundry etc with corresponding noise). If you're in your room when they want to clean you either have to leave immediately or go without cleaning for the day.
Although the owner is extremely obliging there were several shortages of basic items throughout our stay: only one bathrobe the first night, no cream cheese one morning, no wine at the usual wine time one afternoon. All were apologised for by the owner in advance, but we did wonder why the shortages occurred in the first place. Finally, the Inn is on a street with houses with beautiful large open front porches. Sadly the Delaware Inn's front porch has been glazed in, making an extremely hot dining room but meaning that there is nowhere to sit outside, enjoying the warm air and the cool breeze, sipping your wine. I looked jealously at the people doing just that every evening in the neighbouring houses and B and Bs.
Excellent Visit to Delaware Inn
Just had a great stay here. Sharron, who is the new owner has great southern hospitality. Lots of unexpected details like central air, bikes for guests and free wine and cheese. We statyed in the condo (the best I think). Very clean, tons of windows.
We've stayed at lots of places here in Rehoboth, but this is our favorite!

Travel Blogs from Rehoboth Beach
... I just spent a few fantastic days!:) Along with the beach I did a little Europe prep. Well to say the least organizing all my stuff at midnight with the family all asleep in the pop up is quite the feat so I should probably add that to my resume. The "sort of spontaneous adventure" starts now, so stay tuned... P.s this is a brief post just to get the blog out ...
... with a crowded pool, four hot tubs , two bars and noisy black jack tables with dealers in bathing suits. We ordered a pinacolada and strawberry daiquiri to blend in with this different crowd. Our plan is to get to NYC Thursday to meet up with our Chicago boating friends Charlotte and Dean. We are worried about the weather with winds picking up and storms on Friday may hold us back from the last leg to Clinton ...
... our bus route. The good news is the original Dogfish Head Brew Pub, where everything started, is right in Rehoboth Beach two blocks from a bus stop.
So we made that our lunch stop. We arrived about 11:45 and there was a large crowd waiting outside. At first we thought there must be a long waiting list ...
Today, Mike decided to get some serious biking in with a 22-mile round-trip ride to Fenwick Island, Bethany Beach and back. Unfortunately, the rear tire went flat less than a mile from the park and so he had to walk the bike from there. That 8/10 of a mile seemed really long!
Back at the campsite, he attempted to replace the flat ...
... extend our stay here one more day. Maggie booked it and then we took the puppy over the bridge to the north beach for a nice walk (well, Braddock actually ran and ran and ran). We learned that dogs can only be on beaches that are unguarded (no lifeguards). We're at the south beach campground, which has lifeguards, and the north beach doesn't so that's Braddock's beach!
