I rate alot of things "are they worth the money"? and yes this was worth the $59.00 a night we spent. The lady who checked us in was a little rude. I wish they would spend a little money and upgrade the tv's from the old tube 13" to something you can at least watch.

I've stayed at Sea Esta 3 many times - usually in March but not during the high summer season. I have always found it clean, everything worked in the room, and the management and housekeeping staff could not have been nicer. This is not high luxury, but is comfortable and great for the beach, excellent value. I'm heading back in... More

I needed a place to stay with my dog while I attended a business meeting in nearby Bethany Beach. Stumbled upon this motel not expecting much after reading the reviews and didn’t get much. The good – the room was large, the mattress firm, there was a bit of a view of water (the bay) from the balcony, the beach... More

We were completely appalled by the condition of the room! We were not expecting the Ritz by any means because we brought our dog! The hallways and stairways are filthy!!! Upon walking to the room noticed that the bottom of the door was kicked in and door handle was pushed in and patch repaired!!! Mini fridge was warm and freezer... More

We stayed on the 2nd floor in a room with 2 double beds. Our trip started off bad when the man at the office desk was incredibly ignorant and rude to us. We arrived at 11:00am and were simply inquiring about parking our car in the lot so we could go to the beach and possibly check in early if... More

I stayed in a room with two double beds with two others and two dogs (one little, one big). I was worried the space was too cramped, but it turned out to be fine. The mini fridge was great to stock snacks and water for the beach. More than anything, their Wifi was awesome. I found out the day before... More

We stayed here one night on our way to Ocean City. Great location, only a short drive to Rehobeth Beach. Prices were great. We could see the bay from our balcony. The rooms were nice and clean. quiet even though pets were allowed, we never heard any dogs barking. Would definately stay here again.
