Just left from staying at the Seaside Inn after a last minute weekend reservation. We couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. It was a short walk to the beach- which was great for our family of 4. The room was spacious and had clearly been recently remodeled. The Seaside Inn is a great quiet location within walking distance of restaurants and some shops. We will definitely stay here again. We couldn't have been more pleased with our weekend stay!!

Let me just start out by saying that Irwin and Leah (sp) sorry if I spelled your names incorrectly, but they are AWESOWE and so are the staff. Always have a smile on their faces and say good morning. They are the owners of the Seaside Inn. The room I had was awesome. 2 queen size beds, microwave, small fridge, desk, 2 nice chairs and a sofa that is a pullout bed. Rooms were clean, plenty of pillows, 4 per each bed. I found out that the Seaside Inn is only open 6 months out of the year. April - October. If you stay 3 nights they give you a 5% discount. The beach is about 100 yards away. They have 2 ice machines, there is no smoking in the rooms, there is parking for each room. The beach was clean and quiet.

This is our second visit to the Seaside. Staff is still great and the rooms are still clean and updated. Great quiet location with easy access to the beach in peaceful Fenwick Island. Beach is not crowded in the area either

The couple of hundred yard walk to a wonderful, quaint beach that's pristine and not densely populated was very nice indeed. Property was clean and had all of the essentials. The only thing the property lacked was a view of the ocean, but the price for the area was great, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. We'd stay there again.

Nicely appointed room! Very clean. Excellent and friendly staff. Location on the family end of Fenwick Island. A block from the ocean. Walking distance to multiple good restaurants including one directly across the street. Nice pool. Plenty of parking.

No Hot Water, Staff service sucks, room was filthy. Too expensive. Not worth it. Pool sucked. No real perks at all. No real privacy. Don't give these people any money. They suck. Rude, creepy, and nosy staff.

Seaside Inn of Fenwick Island, Delaware is a very pleasant surprise. In this era of chain hotels and exorbitant prices, this "mom and pop" establishment really delivers. Beautifully decorated clean rooms. Generous sized new flat screen tv and free cable and wifi. Nice swimming pool for rinsing off the salt. Friendly and courteous proprietors and staff. One short block from a huge empty (!) beach.

The SeaSide Inn location could only be better if it were oceanfront or had oceanfront views. I loved that there were no other hotels around; just beach houses and a great location a short 2 minute walk down a very quiet road/alleyway (never saw a car on it) to the beach; it was much closer to the beach than I thought and very safe, short walk. The rooms were better than expected with modern colors and wooden floors. My only complaint was no coffee maker in the room - would have loved to have coffee in pjs on the balcony, but you need to go to the lobby to get coffee. The pool area is small, but beautifully decorated with exotic plants and flowers that make you feel like you're on an island and definitely adds to the beachy atmosphere! The hotel staff were all great - very kind, professional and customer service focused - thank you! With the highway bordering the front of the hotel and with other guests, I was expecting our room to be noisy, but did not hear anything or anyone at all unless our balcony door was open, and even then, it wasn't bad at all. I would definitely recommend and stay again at this location if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of Ocean City, but still be able to drive to the boardwalk within minutes. Family of 4 - stayed July 2017.

If you want to stay away from big box hotels then this is the hotel for you.The Seaside Inn is walking distance to the quiet and peaceful Fenwick Beach. It is rather small with only three floors and no elevator . We stayed on the third floor and went up and down frequently and it was easy. The hotel lobby is also small and rather Spartan but the rooms are large, very, very comfortable and each one has a balcony. It looks like the rooms were recently updated. Great water power in the shower too. There is a small pool with plenty of lounge chairs if one gets tired of the beach. But who gets tired of the beach? The staff is very friendly and goes the extra mile to meet the customers needs. There also seemed to be many repeat customers.Would I stay there again, absolutely!

It is a yearly tradition to visit Fenwick Island , and when we do we stay at the Seaside Inn. From our senior week years to now bringing along a son and the family pet, this Inn has come a long way. Loving the newer upgrades of flat screen televisions and bathroom lighting!
