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

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
