This was a great location for the price! The resort is not very modern, but it was clean and perfect for a nice walk on the beach and quality family time. The resort was located near the Tanger Outlets, restaurants, boardwalk, and cute boutiques. We had such a good time and the views were awesome.

My husband and I have been looking to purchase an inexpensive beach condo for the past year and we came across this building. We decided to stay over night as a guest to help us decide if one of the units would be the vacation condo for us. We got to the hotel earlier than the designated check in time... More

Stayed here in September. Awesome location, right on the beach, which is why we stayed. Rooms are weird. Oceanfront, has no balcony, looks like it did but they enclosed it. I missed hearing the ocean and sitting on the balcony. Thats why you pay extra for Oceanfront! Rooms have a Murphy bed that faces a empty wall. We slept on... More

My family and I had to travel to the Rehoboth area for a funeral. Now we frequently travel to the Rehoboth/Dewey Beach for vacation and to visit family but this was my first time staying at The Surf Club. The location could not be better. It is right on the beach and easy walking distance to the main road. The... More

Great location, actually on the beach. Wake up to the soothing sounds of the ocean. Has a nice pool. Front desk staff helpful. Parking fine; check the number of permits. Restaurants nearby. Ownership possibility works out quite well, as 1/4 share give about 12 weeks / year.

After calling every other hotel in Dewey Beach we were happy to get a last minute room here since the weather forecast promised perfect beach weather for the weekend. It was not cheap but what you would expect for a Saturday night in the prime summer season. The location was perfect, directly on the beach and within waking distance to... More

Thank you for your positive feedback as we always like to know our guest are comfortable when they stay with us. We of course apologize for any parking issues, especially during the in-season as parking is extremely tight, however we are working on ways to optimize our parking situation for our guest that should be implemented by the 2015 season....

Overall, this hotel was the perfect spot for my friends and I!! It's clean, spacious, and right on the beach! Certain days they even offer packages where beach chair and umbrella rentals come with your room! Nice bathroom and enough room to sleep 4 comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking equipment, so you can save money on food... More

Location is great however the room looks very old. The bed is upright in the wall with a simple mattress that you let down. Upon our arrival like always we checked the sheets which had an old stain on it and also found out the deadbolt would not latch. Our room was switched to another upon request. Bathroom needs renovations,... More

Our sincerest apologies for the issues you experienced during your stay with us. Our property had under gone a major exterior renovation last year, but an interior renovation has been discussed and more than likely would take place in the next few years. I hope the issues you experienced recently does not deter you from staying with us in the... More
