The Shore Inn- Clothing Optional Hotel for Gay Men

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We came to Rehoboth Beach only to find our house rental was not ready, no A/C. So we decided to stay at the Shore Inn, as it has a friendly large hot tub and many other gay men stay here and they have a clothing optional hot tub. That's where the good parts end. The management wasn't inviting at all, they must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed that day. The rooms were marginal at best. Think Motel 6 in the middle of nowhere. There always seem to be zombie like people wondering around day and night. I was very happy that we were only staying for one night, as I'll never come back again. It was really sketchy. Stay away.

This place is a funky friendly and fun spot just a few blocks from the action. The property has a perfect laid back vibe that keeps bringing us back. Always meet new friends in the sun area/hot tub. Biggest dance club across the street. Other gay bars about 1/2 mile walk, beach about 1 mile walk. Rooms (downstairs) are smallish but cozy and comfortable. Good A/C. Bob the owner is friendly and responsive.

Yes it's a motel type place, Yes it's not 4 or 5 star and Yes it's not in the heart of things..BUT the owner, Bob, has made it welcoming and relaxing without trying. The rooms are clean and basic...what else do you need in a beach town. It's a comfortable walk into town. It can't be beat.

The Shore Inn was a quirky-cool setting for a fun birthday/reunion weekend. The spotlessly clean rooms each showcased modern art, sculpture and furnishings. The outdoor common areas had a retro-chic vibe, with funky crystal chandeliers, vintage votive boxes and cool wall-art/sculpture. An inviting jacuzzi is complemented with an 'open' outdoor shower. The gardens are immaculately maintained, and there are welcoming seating areas on both room levels. A wonderful respite from typical beach lodging!

I come to Rehoboth many times during the year and have always noticed the Shore Inn. This time my partner and I decided to stay and give it a chance. Needless to say we really enjoyed the stay and look forward to coming back. The Shore Inn is just a few short blocks from the main center of town and beaches. But do not forget about the hot tub as we found it as a great way to kick back without all of the sand. The Inn is also walking distance to all the great restaurants and nightlife Rehoboth offers. If you are single or traveling with a partner, The Shore Inn is a great find.

Stayed here last summer a couple times. Previously stayed here last couple summers. The owner has been making improvements and continues to make it more attractive, comfortable, and stylish. There is plenty of off street parking. The short walk (or ask to borrow a bicycle) into town avoids the usual summertime traffic headache of RB. Very comfortable and friendly place to stay.

Lovely Place! It's the best guest house, I 've been so Far! The owners are outstanding people! They make you feel so comfy! I was glad to stay there! The room is cool, very clean and tidy. I met lots of people there, somehow it's so easy meeting people! In other guesthouse it'sa bit tricky knowing people! At the shore In people are relaxed and very keen to chat and just having a drink! If you re byyourself go at the Shore In! Even if you are a couple is a good place! I highly recomend this place! Awesome

I stayed one night at Shore Inn and wish I would have stayed there for my whole trip. The location is excellent. You can walk to the beach and town area and not have to pay the expensive parking rates. The owners were nice and the inn is well maintained. The rooms were decorated in a beach theme appropriate to the area. A pool would be nice but since the beach is so close, it works out.

The inn is in a great location. Parked the car and didn't need it again until we left. Everything is within walking distance, beach, bars and places to eat. The owners are nice and very friendly. The room were updated and many little corners to lounge.

We had a very enjoyable stay at The Shore Inn over the Fourth Of July holiday. The owners were very friendly and we had a great time. Do wish they had a pool! A little pricey for what it was. We liked being able to park and walk to all of the great things to do in Rehoboth including the beach!
