At Melissa’s B&B
Ranked #4 of 14 Rehoboth Beach B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 August 2011

I have stayed many times at this B& B. It is truly a splendid place. It is very comfy and cozy and well cared for. The front porch is a delight for all. Everyone seems to enjoy it so much. The location is just a block and a half from the ocean and easy walking distance to restaraunts, bars and shops.

We adore Rehoboth Beach and have been coming here for many years now. What matters most to us are being close to the beach and a great place to stay. At Melissa's B&B met our needs.

This is our first time staying At Melissa's. It's a comfortable beach house that became our wonderful beach home for the week of July 25th, 2011. We stayed in Room 3 on the second floor, and it was spacious, cool and clean. Our rest was quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Our private bathroom was across the hall and it was always clean.

Continental breakfast was plentiful and tasty - freshly made waffles, hardboiled eggs, sausages and bacon, fresh fruits and so much more.

There are available for us beach gear such as towels, umbrellas and an outside shower in the backyard with eco-friendly soap, shampoo and conditioner. The outside shower was an absolutely treat for us after a long hot day at the beach!

The best part of At Melissa's is Melissa herself. She's a warm, wonderful hostess and innkeeper. She is the heart of this jewel of a B&B.

We had a truly relaxing family vacation and thanks to Melissa, we also now have a new annual family tradition. The only place for us at Rehoboth Beach will be At Melissa's.

You cannot beat the location, only 1 1/2 blocks to the beach and a short walk to great restaurants and bars. Melissa is the consummate host. So generous and friendly. The B&B was always pristine and the continental breakfast was fresh and tasty. (Loved her quiche!) She has beach chairs, coolers and towels for all to use. You MUST try out the outdoor shower. Just fantastic!

We loved coming back from a late dinner or walk on the beach to relax on the porch with a glass of wine (complementary BTW). The area is surprisingly quiet at night given its close proximity to the boardwalk, shops, etc.. At Melissa's is also gay friendly with a nice mix of people of varying ages. Just a really wonderful experience overall.

We will definitely return!!

This was our family's second stay at At Melissa's. We enjoyed our first stay last year so much, that we had to visit again. This summer we spent five days at the Inn and could not have enjoyed our stay more. Melissa simply makes you feel right at home. She almost seems to anticipate your every need. From the bountiful continental breakfast, with loads of fresh fruit, yogurt, bacon, hard boiled eggs and make your own waffles, to the free wine, beer and soda, not to mention our morning's Mimosas, Melissa has everything you could want. The Inn itself is just a block and a half to the beach and boardwalk, with Melissa supplying all the beach gear you need. Great restaurants (Melissa's recommendations) are also just a short walk away. The rooms (we stayed in 5 and 6) are nicely appointed, clean and comfortable. And the front porch, with cool sea breezes, is a great place to have breakfast or an evening glass of wine. We are definitely planning a trip for next season. Truly a lovely beach Inn, with a wonderful innkeeper, in Melissa.

Room Tip: Rooms 5 and 6 on second floor, room 1 on first floor and room 4 for large groups on third floor.

This is our second stay At Melissa's and it truly makes the beach experience perfect. The rooms are bright and clean, the open air front porch is an ideal place to spend the day, and the location is equally perfect for access to the beach and shops/dining.  Even more, Melissa offers a delicious breakfast, access to wine and snacks galore, and always offers knowledgable recommendations. Simply could not be better!
