5 stars for availability. My husband and I decided to go to the beach VERY last minute for Labor Day and there was a room available (score!). They greeted us with a smile and a bottle of water and potato chip package. The room was clean and nice. We weren't in the room much as we explored all the surrounding...

Have stayed here several times in the past. As either a family vacation or couples get away. Each time the Holiday Inn has done its job it doing it right. Location is excellent within walking distance of the beach. Was able to get 2 car passes as I arrived a day later than my wife and that really helped. We...

We just needed a few days at the beach. The hotel was close to the beach, had a nice pool, and had wonderful breakfasts to start the day off well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The fish house next door was delicious and very convenient.

Our family did a last minute weekend in Bethany Beach. We got one of the last rooms in the hotel and originally booked a king bed as it was the only option. I called and requested 2 queens and when I checked in, they did have us in the 2 queens, which I appreciated. We paid a high nightly rate...

Hotel options are very limited in Bethany Beach. Usually we rent a home for a week, but since we could only stay a few days, this was our best option. The hotel is clean, quiet and rooms are lovely. We were 2 adults and 2 children and had a deluxe queen. It's worth paying up for the extra space. We...

My family and I spent a few days at this property and we were all very impressed with the quality of the property and the level of customer service provided by the staff.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in mid August. It's located across the highway from Sea Colony which sits on the ocean. You cannot access the beach through their property but if you walk about a quarter of a mile you have nice beach access. The main area of Bethany is a little further maybe 1/2 mile. Bethany...
