While not the newest looking motel, the Atlantic Oceanside was very clean, nicely priced for weekdays, very close to the beach and many restaurants and located near things we wanted to do. I would definitely stay again. Bed was a little hard for me.

You get what you pay for - property is pretty nasty but there are definitely worse in Dewey. (My husband stayed at the Sea Esta 1 last time - yowzer!) Recommend you stay away from the ice machine - it's covered in mold. Room smelled of mildew and some cleaning agent. Location is great, right in the middle of the... More

My fiance and I stayed here because it was one of the few hotels in Dewey that allowed pets and it was right off the main drag. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach, which is nice. I knew the place wasn't going to be great but was optimistic. At the time, they were using air scrubbers to get... More

We weren't able to access the wi-fi, the hot water runs out, and the rooms are dirty/moldy. However it is a 5 minute walk from the beach and it allows pets. Also, it is close to the downtown area with easy access to Rehobeth Beach. If your priorities are low prices close to the beach, then this place is good... More

Came here for July 4th weekend with my dog. We had a great time and the motel is nice for what it is. It's 1 block to the beach and right in the middle of all the bars and restaurants. Considering the "Dewey crowd" - a mostly young drunken mess - the staff maintains a nice, clean motel with great... More

This suite was old, a bit battered - like it might have been last redone in the late 80's or early 90's. but it was a typical beachy rental pretty standard, very basic. It was clean enough except for the disgusting couch which was riddled with so many stains i had to put a blanket over it b4 i could... More

Nice place and Pet friendly!!! We took our pups with us and they loved the beach!!. You would never be able to tell dogs had been in this room before it was so clean. And being off season was so quiet and the price was great.

Ive stayed here twice in the off season with my mother and our 2 dogs. Both times the room has been clean and didn't smell of other animals staying there. We had a small fridge in the room which was nice and it is super convenient to the beach, which is what we and the dogs were there for! The... More
