Reviewed 28 September 2009

I have stayed at this B & B before, and always go back. Great setting a block from the beach. The rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The front porch is a great place to let the afternoon pass reading a book and enjoying her wine. Looking forward to the next time that I can get away and spend more time At Melissa's

Melissa's Place is the BEST bed and breakfast in Rehoboth. If you are looking for the most accommodating, lovely, generous and fun inkeeper look no further!! Melissa Clink has thought of everything that will make your stay wonderful.
Once you've been here you'll not only return, but you will never want to leave.
Thank you Melissa for everything.
xo,
Cary

I had the pleasure of spending a night with friends at Melissa's B&B in Rehoboth Beach. The house is charming, rooms are quite comfortable and cheerily decorated. Every amenity is provided, from beach towels to soft drinks, to wine in the afternoons. Melissa is a great hostess and makes sure her guests have everything they need. I have been going to Rehoboth Beach for well over 12 years now and Melissa has the competition beat hands down. Can't wait to go back.

We only started writing reviews in earnest last year although TA is our travel bible. We post negative comments only when the hype fails to match the real thing. In the case of AT MELISSA'S, the all the positive reviews are spot on beginning with the description of the outstanding owner-inn keeper, Melissa. She is a real gem. She has even invested in a commercial kitchen to serve her guests. Everything you need to enjoy the beach is there as she supplies everything except your bathing suit, but I bet if you needed one it will be there. Our room was comfortable and clean, breakfast great (loved Melissa's peach cobbler, waffles, too), all the amenities we needed were there, complimentary adult refreshments, too, and the guests very friendly as helpful because all except us were repeat guests. I could go on, but the 2008 reviews I read below are very accurate and convinced us to book a week at the beach. I would only add that fact that Melissa has a number of repeat visitors should tell you enough. And, you can now count us among them.

I have been staying at B&B's in Rehoboth for a very long time (20+ years) and my husband since we got married.

I stumbled on At Melissa's from reading reviews on trip advisor and once again trip advisor didn't fail me!!

This was our first time "At Melissa's" and it stands out from all the rest of the Rehoboth B&B's with the sheer number of amenities she (Melissa) has for her guests; beach bags, beach chairs, umbrellas, sodas & water bottles (neat coin-free soda machine out back), plenty of towels and coolers (with ice from an ice machine) to bring to the beach. Then when you get back from the beach she has white & red wine and beer! She also has small snacks out all day - which makes it nice for a quick snack b/f dinner. Just wonderful!

Breakfast was very yummy. She has yogurt, cereal, pastries, fruit, coffee (neat coffee machine), tea, juice, milk, water... etc. and best of all - make your own waffles. She also had a cheese & potato dish Sunday morning.

The rooms were very clean & cozy - we were in room 1 - first floor. It was very nice, but no TV in the room which my husband had a little withdrawal - but she does have a TV in the main room - so he was fine.

Distance to the beach is a very short walk - block and a half away - can't beat it.

Melissa as a host is so hospitable, very friendly and great to talk to. She's quit the traveler too and we loved hearing about the places she has been. She remembers your names right off the bat and makes it a point to introduce you to other guests - which is really nice!!

This truly is the beach house we wish we could have!
We'll def. be back!
