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.

Mid June Stay, Staff was very helpful and full of suggestions for places to eat/drink. Check-in was quick and easy. We had a King, Poolside room. It was perfect size, had stove, microwave, sink, refrig, small dining room table/chairs. Bed and bath were just what you should expect. Clean and housekeeping did a swell job daily. 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!!

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
