Right across from the Bottle and Cork make this the loudest hotel/motel ever. I like Dewey beach but Jeesh! Zero security, screaming drunks every night, beer cans piled high outside several rooms and rampant pot smoking make this place not so great. There is a small pool, they do take dogs, there are bike racks in the back lot and... More

Motel is on same side of beach, so no need to cross busy road...and it's a short walk. We stayed here because of motel being known to be dog friendly. There is small pool on site, which is always filled with kids -- so not a calm setting. We only had noise first night of four when a group partied... More

Very nice, clean, a little noisy in the bedroom. Sirens, motorbikes !! Great access to the beach! Dog loved it. Great for walking to the shops and restaurants!! No one told us to get the dog license at the visitors center on sat and sun. It's on the Main Street. Driving is crazy but a fun town great short distance... More

We've stayed here off and on for over 25 years. This is a beach motel, I get it, but it is time to update, clean up and modernize. Bathrooms need work. Time to reinvest in comforters and carpeting. Painting is due.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our silver anniversary trip! A great little motel that gave us our first beach experience! We loved that we could sit on the deck and people watch and the traffic! We have three dogs who stayed at home but we're thrilled to know they are so pet friendly! Less than... More

Just returned today from a 3 night stay here. Motel is nothing fancy but rooms are clean, pet friendly and a PERFECT LOCATION! Easy 1/2 block walk to beach. Staff was courteous and accommodating to us. Would and will stay there again as we were very satisfied. Thank you guys!

Ok...this place is not the Taj Mahal, but it provides a place to sleep and shower. It's great for the younger crowd. You can walk to the Bottle and Cork, Jimmy's, Starboard or even the Rudder. You are about block and a half from the ocean. There is a deck to sit on, have a beer and watch the strip.... More

We didn't know what to expect from this motel as we booked it last minute (day before we were arriving!) But we were pleasantly surprised!! The motel was clean & accommodating to all our needs. The staff is FANTASTIC!!!!! They were so nice & friendly & welcoming to not only us but to our puppy (Duke) that we brought along!!!... More

First and Priority for us is Dog Friendly! We have a Great Dane and English Bull Dog. These two adore the beach as much as we do! We are respectful of the seasonal beach restrictions for dogs allowed in places such as the beach so we make it a point to go late April/early May as to avoid the majority... More

I stayed here for several days with my dog for the 10th Annual Doodle Romp. The room was simple but clean. The outside deck was perfect for us to gather with our dogs and snacks in the afternoon. Management was great. I have already booked a room for next year.
