simple hotel with outdoor pool. Staff was helpful. Short walk to nearby restaurants, beach was less than a block to the rear of hotel. Rooms could use updating, thin beds.

Simple hotel. Free parking. They let us check in early. We got a room with 2 beds near the pool, which was heated. Short walk to the beach. Room was decently clean. Only complaint i could have would be the fly problem but this seems to be in all of Dewey Beach and not unique to this motel by any... More

For hours I have been listening to children or elephants or something running back and forth and stomping. The floors are very thin, and we can also hear exactly what people are saying upstairs. Called to complain and the office made it seem like they would call the upstairs people, but they obviously never did.

We have stayed here every summer for the past 16 years. It is the best value in Dewey Beach. It is 2 blocks to the beach, has a pool, and it is located in the heart of Dewey Beach. It also has a Subway sandwich shop on the premises. It is within walking distance to Dairy Queen, Grottos Pizza, and... More

This place takes the cake. Not only are they more than reasonably priced, but they allow dogs, have the nicest staff, and PLENTY of parking. On top of that, they are a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. Seriously, this is the best kept secret in Dewey. No, it is not luxury, but it is clean, roomy, and... More

This is an economy motel. Everything to meet our basic needs was satisfactory. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. There is little counter space in the bathroom. The fridge and microwave are nice to have in the room. This motel is in the middle of Dewey Beach. At night, it is a real party town. If you don't... More

My friends and I decided to go to Dewey for the fourth of July. It was three girls and we were looking for a place that wasn't outrageously priced during a holiday weekend. After reading some reviews about Atlantic Oceanside, I was a little skeptical; however, I was actually quite surprised. Everything turned out better than expected. I was quite... More
