The beachside cities of Rehoboth and Lewes Beach, Delaware, are the place to go in this tiny state for a mixture of beaches and boardwalks, historic sites and delicious eateries. However, before you can thoroughly explore all the charm this area of The First State offers, you'll need to book a place to stay. Here are three spots to potentially call your basecamp while in the region.
In Rehoboth, the Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center sits right on the family-friendly oceanfront, while also putting you in easy reach of great shopping at Tanger Outlets, just two miles away, as well as dining and drinking in the downtown restaurants and watering holes. The modern property features an outdoor pool and on-site restaurant, and many guest rooms offer views of the beach. Amenities include free WiFi, so you can keep in touch with everyone back home, while also posting all your great vacay pics to your fav social media channels. For the best views, book an Ambassador Corner King guest room, which offers floor-to-ceiling ocean views along two walls, plus a spacious balcony.

If you'd rather stay in Lewes, The Beacon Motel awaits with its location near downtown Lewes, Lewes Beach and Cape Henlopen State Park. With free parking, free WiFi and a swimming pool, as well as a rooftop sun deck, it's easy to see why this property receives such high ratings on platforms such as Google and TripAdvisor. All the guest rooms come with private balconies and connected guest rooms are available for families or groups of friends. When you're ready to explore, the beach is a three-block walk away, and downtown is just a two-block walk away.

Back in Rehoboth Beach, the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel sports an attractive Victorian style, but with all the modern amenities you expect during your vacation. The historic vibe extends throughout the property, from the two-bedroom apartment furnishings to the suites to ocean-view guest rooms. Those who want the VIP experience can book a stay on the child-free concierge level, which comes with extra perks such as turndown service, use of a rooftop sundeck and spa, later check-out times and morning coffee in the garden.
