I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel this week for work. I can’t express how delighted I was with the hotel and staff! What a great group of people who love there job! When I checked I went back to my car and came back to find the young man had already taken my suitcase up to my room. Just the best place ever! I will find a reason to go back!

While planning a Birthday weekend for my boyfriend, who was working in Baltimore for the week, I searched relentlessly for an affordable, historic accommodation along the coast in Maryland or Delaware. I stumbled upon the Brick Hotel on The Circle in Georgetown, DE and based on location and price, I booked it right away. I was NOT disappointed! Garth was amazingly accommodating, and the room was really beautiful. The electric fireplace added ambiance - although a real/gas fireplace would have been preferred. The location was ideal and we took two separate day trips to Rehoboth Beach as it was just a short drive from the hotel. Georgetown is a charming little town and the people were very friendly. I could NOT be happier with my choice. We hope to go back again soon!

We recently stayed overnight at The Brick. We were warmly greeted by Garth, who could not have been more welcoming. He personally showed us the hotel, the breakfast room, double porches and our room, all of which were tastefully decorated. We had gotten a deal for our room through Expedia: a $130 room for $115. The Brick upgraded us to a $145 room which overlooked The Circle. It was clean, but had the sink and vanity in the room, not the bathroom. The only thing we didn't like about the room was that the bed and pillow were very uncomfortable, that and the bed linens not typical of a room of this price.

We recently booked our reception with The Brick. (One year out from our event) We encountered many issues that were NOT positive! The owner Lynn sold the restaurant in Aug of 2018 one month prior to our reception and did not inform us in writing or personal phone call of the change. Further, that a new chef / owner would be preparing our menu! I just happened to call mid Aug to look at our reception space for final decor decisions and was told by their coordinator “By the way, did you know we sold the restaurant” Totally unprofessional! Then when we looked at the room, 4 weeks before our day, she offered a second tasting with the new chef, who she informed us was a James Beatd award winner. However when we had our tasting he failed to provide the salmon dish! The coordinator also offered us additional space for our bar to make room for more dance space, then a week before the reception, informed us we could not use it, informing us that it was booked in Aug! It was not avail to us yet she told us we could use it! I asked for a call the day before our reception to check in early and never received it! Only to find it in an email the day after our wedding that I could have checked in! Then the night before I arrived at 8 pm the reception room was clear but the coordinator was asking to change the arrangement of the room from what I had planned for a year! We had to wait for them to find linens for the tables And rearrange tables! Then to top it off the young woman who was our bartender literally laid into me regarding decorating the mantle ( of which I was very careful to not harm) Had I known she was going to be our bartender I would have demanded someone else! Her attitude was very sour even at the reception! The only shiny moments were the food was exceptional! Miguel the new co owner gave us free mimosas while getting ready The bartender in the restaurant gave us long islands on the house! Miguel was exceptional on Sunday!! All said it’s done! But I woul not ever book another event with this venue!!! Unless they fire their coordinator Kelly who really is in the wrong business

Simply Amazing. The staff, the food, the Owner even the guests. Its a great place to stay and very comfortable cozy and quiet. If you don't want the hustle and bustle of a large Hotel with the warmth of a hot cup of cider, give The Brick a try. I promise you'll love it and you will return as I have made it my second home in trying to purchase a home in Delaware. :')).

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.
