We loved this boutique hotel. Friendly staff, very comfortable room. We had a suite with a king-sized bed. There was some noise from the Crown & Rose below, but could mostly hear it from the bathroom, only a little from the bedroom. We were so tired that well fell right asleep despite that. We had no trouble parking in the...

I booked a "Corner Deluxe" room using the "Long Weekend Package". I talked to Brittany who was extremely helpful, answering all of my questions. As it turned out, her recommendations were spot on. I planned this as a mystery getaway weekend for my wife's birthday and she was extremely pleased. Our room was extremely clean, tastefully decorated, and had a...

Another great stay at Hotel Rodney. Staff is always wonderful, the suite is clean and cozy. We love the area and access to everything in just a few steps especially having the convenience of the Rose & Crown within the hotel.

Quaint hotel on 2nd Street in downtown Lewes. Great view and close to everything. You could walk to Lewes Beach(maybe a mile?) . The hotel is adjacent to the Rose and Crown an English style Pub whit very good food. The staff is friendly and the rates are more than reasonable. I would stay there again in an instant.

My wife and I just love this hotel. The rooms feature beautiful hardwood floors and gorgeous black and white marble tile bathrooms and the staff treated us like royalty. I slept great because the beds are so comfortable. My wife loved all the tax-free shopping nearby, but what I enjoyed was sitting by the fire in the glass blocked-walled lobby...

My wife and I stayed for President's Day weekend. Lewes is a quaint seaside town, and Hotel Rodney's location was perfect. The first night we ate (and drank wine!) at the in-house restaurant, Rose & Crown, which is connected to the lobby and is a really nice looking place. Good pub food at reasonable prices. The second night we wanted...

Do not try and reserve a room online unless you buy pigs in a poke. There is no way to make a reservation online and know what you will get or what it will cost. Even though the online form says: "This is a REQUEST for reservations form. We will contact you via e-mail or phone to COMFIRM the AVAILABILITY...

While we stayed in February (off-peak) it was very quiet and pleasant. The hotel is charming, simple and clean. The in-town setting is great, there's a pub around the corner and a great bakery with coffee just up the block. Lewes is a great place to take a walk and relax.

We have seen this hotel many times and decided to spend a few nights there. It was a very enjoyable time spent in a very historical town. The staff was friendly and helpful as well as the attendants that cleaned up the room for us. The hotel was very clean. We had no problem parking - some of the time...
