Brick Hotel on the Circle

Recent guest reviews

I’m a local, and I had my wedding here so we stayed the night before and after. As far as the wedding went, it went great. Things didn’t go exactly as I planned, mostly had to do with rain but the event could’ve been a little more organized. But that being said it was really nice and nobody really seemed to notice. The room, for what we paid, could’ve had a little more. We had to bring our own mini fridge so that I could store breast milk for my two month old during the stay. The staff was great! They were very nice and very helpful. I would recommend staying here if you’re ever in town. Thank you to Kelly, and Lynn for doing everything you could to make my special day go as perfectly as it could.

We had a quick get away to this quaint inn. Room was comfortable, clean. Staff was there when we checked in and took us to our room. The Inn is farther away from the beaches than expected and after 5pm the town is quiet. I can't say enough good things about the hotel but the restaurant under new ownership was a major disappointment and a poor value for the price.

As longtime patrons of the Brick Hotel restaurant and bar we were excited about the prospect of experiencing fresh ideas and new menu items being introduced by the owners of the new Counting House. On our first visit since the changeover and we left very pleased with the food and service. As usual we sat at the bar for happy hour and ordered from the varied bar and dinner menus. It remains the closest we’ve come to the friendly welcoming atmosphere of “Cheers,” and it was great to get to know Miguel who was making drinks with a new staffer, Ryan. My spouse raved about the deviled egg from the bar menu. The fried pickles and sliders also on the bar menu got a thumbs up by a patron sitting next to us. We ordered separate dinner entrees of crab cakes and coffee roasted duck breast. The two crab cakes were broiled to perfection with not a trace of filler. The roasted squash and peanut ramesco accompaniments were delicious. The sliced duck breast was a generous size and cooked to perfect pinkness and tenderness. Add the summer squash pancakes and roasted string beans and this was a fine dinner. I also ordered a small side of greens with a very tasty light caesar dressing. We took half of both dinners home to enjoy again. The new restaurant operators are still testing the waters with food creations in the yet-to-be expanded kitchen, but I’d say they’re on the right track to keeping the Brick on the Georgetown Circle a food and drink destination away from the beaches, and a convenient spot to dine for anyone enjoying a stay in the inn.

Tried to make a reservation for 6 people on the second day of the new ownership. Was told they were not taking reservations so we chanced it and got in with no wait. The menu had changed from the old Brick menu and was very limited. My friends ordered a very of entree’s but the meal that was the worst was the flatiron steak that was so tuff you couldn’t cut it let alone eat it. We brought it to the new owners attention but he seemed to just brush it off and didn’t even offer a compensation..The new owners better learn P/R or they will not be in business very long. I am not sure we are going to give them a second try, probably not...We are making sure that others are aware our experience. Just remember new owners.....Word of mouth can be costly since you failed to handle the problem correctly.

We recently stayed at the Brick Hotel on the circle one night while returning home from St. Michaels MD. We were very pleased with our room. Decorated very nice and looked to have been recently updated. The gentleman Garth who greeted us was friendly and very helpful as far as recommending some local restaurants for dinner since there restaurant was closed that night. I was expecting a little bit better breakfast, but I realize it's not a B&B. We would definitely stay there again.

Loved everything about this hotel! You just know that the owners of this hotel put their heart and soul into renovating this historic gem of a hotel!! They have staff making sure that you are taken care of from the moment you enter until the minute you leave! Some very interesting historic notes and factoids about the history and renovation of this lovely must see hotel!

Wonderful night stay!! PROS: --Friendly staff. Garth at the front desk made us feel right at home. --All the perks of a bed and breakfast --Free snacks in each room and the common space --Great location: conveniences close by... but still tucked away in a historic town square. Rehoboth Beach and Lewes not far away. CONS: --Tough to think of any con. Only a small item or two. The hotel requests that you check in by 10pm... if you're a night owl and late to arrive, there may be a 25 dollar fee. If folks sit on the balcony and talk loudly, you may be able to hear them in your room. TIPS: --All rooms look amazing. The Baker room is a little close to the main parlor. If you're a light sleeper, you might hear some other guests early in the morning.

My wife and I like to stay here when we go to Lewes, DE beaches. Georgetown gives you MUCH better pricing on overnight stays, and you are a short 25-30 min to the beach. The Brick Hotel is a fantastic place and we can't say enough good things. The Hotel sits right on the town circle, which is a beautiful view from the front porches. The rooms are nice (some are very small), and the beds were comfortable. They have an awesome patio/rooftop area on the second floor which is great for some evening wine or morning coffee. There is a full service bar right inside as well as (what looks to be) a great restaurant. We have not eaten at the restaurant yet, but we've enjoyed some cocktails at the bar and plan to hit the restaurant the next time we are in town.

The room was comfortable. The bed excellent. Dinner was delicious. Continental breakfast on the upstairs patio. The staff was friendly and helpfull. Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. Plan to return for a longer stay and walk around town. Very restful. Highly recommend to anyone.

The room was very clean and comfortable. It was very quite and relaxing unlike the franchise hotel chains. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Location is great in historic Georgetown center circle!!
