Stayed here for two nights during an April weekend with a friend. Overall my experience was present. The couple who checked me in was very friendly and also sent some time speaking with me about the area and answering my questions. The room was decent with a great view of the bay. Rooms are somewhat dated but it is exactly... More

My husband and I, whenever possible, make arrangements to stay here for our beach vacation. Since our last visit, the bathrooms have been renovated beautifully. In the last six years, the soft furnishings have been updated as well. We favor the choice of a kitchenette as it gives us the opportunity to eat in when we choose to as well... More

My fiance is a photographer so we were super thrilled to find this highly rated, budget hotel with a beautiful bay view (with a pier!). The hotel was clean and the front desk was always extremely nice and helpful. We stayed here right at the start of the off season and were by far the youngest guests that we encountered... More

This is a most amazing hotel. Great location - close to shops and restaurants as well as the windsurfing beach at Tower Rd., superfriendly staff, clean and comfortable room. Except that I was in Dewey for a wedding and a reunion, I could have hung out on the balcony of my bayside room forever. The view from the balcony of... More

Stayed at Bay Resort for 4 nights - very nice room, super clean, very comfortable bed. Our room was on the bay side - a must - just a beautiful view; we never tired of it. Sit on your balcony for meals or reading and watch the water, birds and sailboats. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Know that there... More

Nice pool, bay front room was nice you can park right in front of your room if you have a first floor room. Efficiency had all the stuff you need like dish soap and utensils. Good location in middle of all the Dewey, very nice staff. If you have kids bring your own milk as most places don't sell milk... More

This hotel is my favorite in Dewey Beach. The bayfront rooms have a beautiful view of Rehoboth Bay. There is also a little dock that you can go crabbing or fishing off. They have a nice basic pool and are walking distance to anything in Dewey. It is nice that many rooms are efficiencies so you can cook your own... More

We book our stay for September and we love it there. Clean, quiet and comfortable. We have stayed on the bayside as well as the poolside. Since there are no children the poolside is quiet and it also has a view, but not as nice as the bay side. But it does have a balcony. The only downfall with bay... More
