My wife and I booked a room during the Sea Witch Festival with our 70 pound Lab/Shepard mix dog. Check in was easy, and we were supplied with maps, time schedule, etc for the activities planned for the festival. This hotel is very pet friendly, and we were pleased there was no issue on weight limit for our dog. We... More

This was my second time staying here for Greyhounds Reach The Beach...we had a GREYT time! The rooms are perfect for dogs, friendly staff, easy access to the beach, and also a nice deck patio for socializing. We had a very relaxing stay and hated to go back home. The only complaint I have is that there isn't a coffee... More

We stayed at the AO for Greyhounds Reach the Beach, 2014. The staff is professional and hospitable, the rooms clean and everyone is so dog-friendly! Vending from the third floor was a bit of a hike since there is no elevator, but that did not stop success. Love this place, the nearby BAKED Coffee Bar (Pam and staff were so... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night with our two dogs. Its nothing fancy, but its a good place to stay if you have pets and you're on a budget. The microwave was pretty old, but at least its something. There was a mini-fridge as well so that was nice. The hotel is a short, 3 min walk to... More

Dropped in to see what the rates would be for a midweek off-season stay with my dog, and couldn't pass up the deal the woman at the front desk offered me. I wasn't expecting a whole lot, but was pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean. Yes, there are a few things that need sprucing up -- the doors to... More

I stayed there in Oct 2013. It was ok. Place was old & kitchen area was dirty. There was a strange lady next door who was in my business. I almost moved to another room. Only advantage was they take pets. So since it's hard to find pet friendly places I decided to reserve for this Oct. I had to... More

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
