For those traveling with pets on a budget, I highly recommend this motel. We stayed 3 nights right after Labor day. It was a fantastic time to visit Dewey in general because it wasn't crowded and the weather was perfect. We are the type of people that only use a hotel to sleep and shower. We look for something dog... More

This review is actually about the suites, located a half a mile or so from the actual motel. The suites are bright, clean, and very spacious for a couple and dog. The decor is slightly outdated but clean and fresh smelling. The suites are right next to farm stand/market. It is approximately a 5 minute walk to the beach (about... More

This hotel is a good location if you like to go for the nightlife. Hotel is average, close to the beach an the staff is friendly. The TV is very old school! We went for the nightlife so the noise was not a problem for us. Really is just needs a few upgrades. We will stay again.

I love it here. Great for my dogs, easy access to the beach. We come all year, nice and quiet off season. This hotel is also right across the street from the Bay. Staff and Owner very friendly. Rooms are Beachy which is a good thing.

The beach was too steep for me but my husband walked a little. It was a beautiful day. We both said we like the Jersey shore better. It was fun for us. The hotel was a great location. The jacuzzi was dirty. We had a film on us when we got out of it. I had fun walking the boardwalk... More

Chose this hotel for the pet-friendly aspect. Room had a mini-fridge, microwave, small table and two lumpy twin beds. Cleanliness was so-so, but you are not there to stay in the room all day, so it serves it's purpose. Noise level was a bit much and went on until the wee hours from club/bar across the street. Management/owner is friendly,... More

Lots of stores eateries and entertainment. Pet friendly Motel, but you would never know it. Town is pet friendly and you can take them just about anywhere. See... More

My wife and I stayed at the Atlantic Oceanside Motel with some friends as a last trip to the beaches this year. In our opinion, when affordability, location (whether you are there for the beach or the nightlife), and quality are calculated in, the motel was a great choice and we would definitely go back. The cost was very affordable,... More
