My wife and I went here for a week on August 17th 2014. This place was recommended by my buddy at work. The place was clean and the front desk people were super friendly and helpful on recommendations for places to go. **** Tip*** Get the 2nd or third floor bayside rooms. You won't regret it! Only a short walk... More

Just spent several lovely days here. Loved the view from our room. Very friendly owners. Get a bay view room. The only reason you would want a pool room view is if you have children you want to watch while they swim in the pool. Room for improvement would be in cleaning the rooms. The carpet was so dirty my... More

This is a your typical clean, older hotel. Room was spacious and had a stove, fridge, microwave and nice size balcony. Front desk staff was super nice. Everything you need at the beach- I would stay again

LOVE this hotel! The ladies at the front desk are so warm and friendly and accommodating. The rooms are huge and have large mini-fridges, stoves, toaster ovens, and sinks. It's always clean and has everything we need. The pool is a big draw to hang out in, and there is a beautiful gazebo and pier on the bay. On the... More

The Bay Resort was definitely a great find! It's in an ideal location because you can walk to lots of restaurants, stores and the beach within minutes, yet it's still away from too much noise, traffic etc. it's tucked at the end of the street right on the bay... be sure to get a "bay view" room because the sunsets...

WOW! What a gem! This small hotel with only 67 rooms is delightful. Everyone is so friendly and willing to assist you in anyway possible. From Shirley, Rusty and the entire front desk to housekeeping. Everyone is so personable and eager to go that extra mile to ensure you are happy. We booked a first floor bay view room and... More

I've stayed at the Bay Resort probably about 10 times over the past 4 years - both with friends and my husband. It's my #1 choice in Dewey but I don't always want to pay the extra money for it. Very clean rooms, all have a patio or balcony and I think all of them have a kitchenette as well.... More

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.
