There's a Delaware Hotel That Tries and Fails to Look Like the White House
While driving down the highway on the way to the popular Delaware weekend destination of Rehoboth Beach, you'll end up passing a stream of Comfort Inns, Rodeway Inns and various other "Inns," but it's this one that caught our eye.
First, it was the "Best Buy on the HWY" sign that made us turn our heads, but then the faux-White House structure set just back from the highway had us intrigued. It looked like some sort of dressed up old brick apartment building, and yet it was a Golf Club as well as a hotel?
This, the Heritage Inn and Golf Club, where nightly rates starts at $129 during the summer, is a perfect example of the type of accommodation that appears every so often along the East Coast highways.
The theme is traditional Americana, and the bald eagle atop the sign just adds additional flavor. You can bet that the rooms are done up in red, white and blue (and they totally are), and that they proudly display the AAA logo. Oh, but it gets worse: "Each room is named for a state, territory, national park or other American Tradition." Rest assured that we didn't stop here long enough to sleep here.
