Beach View Motel
Ranked #3 of 27 Hotels in Rehoboth Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 September 2010

I wanted to give these folks the benefit of the doubt from previous reviews and try them out. Plus, the guy responding to the reviews seems to pay close attention to what's going on, so that gave me a lot of hope. Well I'll never go again. No way. OLD rooms, old furniture. Not worth nearly the price we got charged.

It's a pretty easy decision for me in the future. I won't be staying here, not that they'd have me. Don't try to ask for anything; you'll be disappointed.

This motel has seen better days. Looks elsewhere. It's that simple. Old and worn out.

Our family has been in the hospitality business for over 60 years. After serving hundreds of thousands of guests in that time frame you learn a lot about people. One unfortunate thing we have learned is you can't please everybody. We try very hard to make every guests stay enjoyable and memorable. Some times as hard as we try some guests simply do not recognize the effort we put forth. I believe the majority of our reviews tell the true story of the experience you will enjoy at the Beach View.

The motel was clean & comfortable; staff is very friendly, helpful & accommodating, and the location perfect - steps from the boardwalk and beach & across the street from Funland for my 8 year old son! We will be back.

We did a short trip to Rehoboth beach (just 2 nights). This motel was wonderful! They allowed us to park in the parking lot before it was time to check in, very helpful considering parking at a meter is $0.25 per 10 minutes. Location is great, just a short walk to the boardwalk, ocean and Funland. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. You can't beat the price per night to be this close to the boardwalk! We spent more time than we would have liked in the room due to the bad weather the days we were there. The room was very comfortable, nothing extravagant but basics all there. Loved that the sink and mirror was outside of the toilet/shower room. Made it very convenient to get ready while one person was showering. The Motel has a small pool available for guests, but we did not use it due to the bad weather. The only problem we had was not being able to log onto the Internet. The password we were given at the desk did not work. We did not pursue the problem with the front desk. We weren't too concerned with using the Internet anyway. I am sure if we would have contacted the front desk they would have been willing to help us. Overall, we definately plan to book again at this Motel for any future Rehoboth trips.

Looking at all the great reviews encouraged me to make an online reservation here for myself and family. Huge disappointment. We booked two rooms and both had moldy odors and were moderately 'clean'. Beds were very uncomfortable with cheap low-grade linens. Location is close to the boardwalk which increased the noise level. Loud teens were noisy throughout the evening. The pool looked very unclean and dingy. Way overpriced for quality of motel. We were so dissatisfied that we had to find a last minute reservation elsewhere that cost us twice as much. I personally think these reviews are way over-rated. Would not recommend or ever stay here again.

This is a duplicate review by the same party that used the same heading on August 17. This is the sister that the brother was upset with giving us a bad review now. Unfortunate that we have to suffer the burden of a bad rating because a guest made the wrong decsion in choosing a property. Notice the stay was in May and now that it is recognized that a refund will not be given after disputing with credit card company the review is written by first time users of tripadvisor in both incidences.

First time In Rehoboth Beach and the Beach View Motel was excellent especially the housekeeping staff. They were very helpful, kind and considerate. Our housekeeper Nancy was exceptional and the head housekeeper was on top of everything. Just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean - 50 feet or less - very convenient with 2 kids in tow. We paid extra for an ocean view - not an ocean view at all unless you could crane your neck way over to the right above the tree - we were on the first floor. Suggestion: Air Conditioner in the King size room could be replaced - very loud and the couch - sit on it and it sinks. I did a couple of loads of laundry - washer was excellent but, the dryer did not dry the clothes in one cycle - had to run it twice - heating element is weak - may want to replace it. Why do you charge for ice? Should be a free guest service. We will be back again - keep up the excellent service.

Thank you for reviewing the Beach View and for choosing our hotel for your first trip to Rehoboth. I will let the housekeepers know you mentioned them by name, they always appreciate good feedback as do I. We have tierd prcing to reflect the better views from the balconies, the higher the better. We will look into the dryer problem. While it is not something we like to do we have the 25 cent charge for ice to prevent guests from filling their beach coolers which drains the machine of ice for only a couple of customers. We will always reimburse you when using the ice for in room use. We look foraward to you staying with us again.
