Great place to stay for a decent price with dogs! Friendly staff, nice accommodations, great location! We unfortunately had a bad experience with another hotel (Sea Esta Motel 1) and will never be returning to this hotel. We will definitely be utilizing Atlantic Oceanside Motel in Dewey from now on because it truly was the best experience for us and... More

This is our second visit here and we will be back for Sea Witch Festival in October. The staff is amazing here so accommodating and so pet friendly. The beach is right out back and is beautiful. I have read some of these other reviews and quite frankly what they have to say is a lot of Crap. The place... More

Atlantic Oceanside is a nice motel that is dog friendly and just a half block from the beach. There is a pool and a deck overlooking the street. It is in the center of town with many activities nearby. Our efficiency even had a small patio that our dog loved as he could see people and dogs coming from the... More

We stayed a few nights over labor day 2015. Dog friendly. Nice roof top seating to people watch on the strip. Reviews said loud property, our room was towards the ocean (back of building) and we heard nothing. We couldn't hear the bar down the block or other people that were staying. My son, daughter-in-law, their 18 month old and... More

We stayed here for two nights over Labor Day. The location might be okay if you're 21 and ready to hit the bars, but the room was gross. The bathroom walls had holes from water damage, the kitchenette was falling apart, the AC barely worked, the WiFi was terrible and I woke up with bugs in the bed. Never again.... More

Each representative of the Oceanside's staff were friendly, courteous & helpful with questions. It is a short walk down the street & over the dunes to the beach which my two Golden Retrievers thought was great. I had stayed at the Atlantic Oceanside at this location quite a few years ago & I was disappointed with the upkeep of the... More

Just returned today from a five day stay with husband and two dogs. The hotel is convenient to everything Dewey Beach has to offer. Dewey is a party town. So there are a lot of bars and drunk people around. The beach is one block behind the hotel which is nice. They have a small pool that is nice to... More

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
