I've visited Bay Resort several times and will definitely be returning! Several people's reviews have pointed out that it's not a resort but actually a motel, which is true. That's something you would easily notice by looking at their website though. This place is phenomenal for the price. You hands down cannot beat the location, with the sunsets over the... More

We stayed here two separate times (2011, 2013) while vacationing in Dewey Beach. The first time we were poolside and more recently were bayside. This hotel is great, especially for the price. The price is much more reasonable than the other hotels in the area. While it is a little outdated, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Also, each... More

We were planning a beach vacation but couldn't commit to a full week rental, so none of the condos on the ocean were available. We like having kitchen facilities so we're not locked into having every meal in a restaurant and also like having somewhere else to sit other than the bed, so we got one of the bayside king... More

We stayed here 4 summers ago & remembered how nice it was. Still is! Had room overlooking the bay - gorgeous sunsets from private balcony. This is an older motel but very nice, clean, comfy beds, room had kitchenette. FYI: Dewey Beach is a 'party' area at times with at least 3 'dance clubs /bars with live bands within walking... More

My husband daughter and I just returned from a very nice stay at The Bay Resort. Overall it was a pleasant experience. The property is older and in need of updating but it is clean and the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. One word of warning that I would give is that this property is close to many of...

Enjoyed my time at the Bay Resort. It has a good staff. Nice views of Bay. We are just used to more renovated or newer rooms. The kitchenette could be an added benefit but when in Dewey it is usually cheaper and more fun to eat out at the many not so healthy choices in Dewey. If you are a... More

My family and I had a very pleasant stay! The check in was very easy. Our room was on the third floor overlooking the pool. All rooms have a balcony, which was nice. This is not a newer motel, so the outside has some minor flaws. It needs a paint job. The room was basic but clean and comfortable. I... More

This is our third year staying at the Bay Resort, however the first time I am reviewing it. The Bay Resort is an excellent place to stay. It is extremely clean and comfortable and the staff is great. Several staff members were the same from the past two years which is a major plus because Shirley, Dan (and I forgot... More

Perfect location 1-1/2 blocks to beach and bay in the back yard. Great access for my wife and I to kayak the bay in a future trip. Quiet and extremely friendly/helpful staff. Dock for crapping and fishing. Would recommend for the active/outdoor types and we will definitely return. Great areas outdoor to relax.

Just spent a long weekend at the Bay Resort July 11-14. It was my 8th year in a row staying at the hotel, and I can say hands down, it is one of the best hotel experiences I have each year. I travel extensively for work and stay in many hotels. The location and staff of the Bay Resort make... More
