I found The Bay Resort while roaming around Dewey Beach looking for the spot we used to camp on the beach on the bay. What a perfectly wonderful surprise! We booked immediately and have returned many times. The staff always makes us feel at home. The planned activities for families add to the fun. Did I mention the affordability of... More

Always friendly, Dan and his staff go over and above to make sure you have a wonderful stay. We got married on the little beach/tiki hut out back on the bay. It was small, just family. The staff made sure we had everything we needed and everything came off without a hitch. I've been staying here for at least 25+... More

Like the title says, the hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The location is great for the Dewey Beach social scene, you can easily walk home from all the bars. You can stay on the bay side, or the pool side.

Great location, excellent staff, amazing accommodations. Went for a girls weekend and had beach and pool time. Rooms were in a great location, set aside from most other guests and proved for a great weekend.

What a great weekend. With a hurricane looming we had thoughts of a wet weekend, but NOT! Great room. So CLEAN! We love this place and staff. Nice efficiency if u want to eat in...or walking distance to many Dewey eateries. Fireworks off the bay. Plan a great visit to the Dewey Beach.

Pool was nice and... More

Just returned from a stay at this hotel - Clean, great staff, beautiful view of the bay, spotless pool area. Dewey Beach is a great wide expanse of beach. Good restaurants within walking distance. And don't forget NO SALES TAX in Delaware!!. Run don't walk to this accommodation.

First and foremost, the best staff anywhere! On check-in they were helpful with recommendations for restaurants, helpful with local parking and just really great people! The rooms were nice and clean, and either you look out on the pool and the bay and ocean like we did, or get the most beautiful sunset view on the bay side rooms. The... More

The staff is so nice from check in to check out. The pool was clean. The rooms were great. The back grass area was a fun place to hang out. Went with my friends from college after graduation and had a blast here it was everything we needed and more.

WE LOVE THIS MOTEL AT DEWEY!!! We stay here June & September. 2 blocks from the beach. Quiet location. Friendly staff. Nice pool. GREAT Bay view!!!! Any bay view room is best (unless you're watching children at the pool). Great for watching sunsets!!
