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

I have been stayed here many many years for my vacation. It may be old but I love it alot. If you stay in an ocean front room, it is out of this world beautiful! They have enough room to sleep, a small kitchette with cooking equipment, toaster, microwave, coffee pot, radio, T.V. with cable and of course WIFI. Depending... More

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

This hotel looks like it's been renovated, but really, it's been awhile. It has seen better says and a pleasant staff certainly does their best. It's a good location and a good price. The terrace where guests barbecue is often messy late in the evening, which is certainly nobody's fault but the slobs who thought it was Koa. It sure... More

Stayed here on May 9th for one night. I have stayed here several times over the last 15 years and other than the facade of the building, this place has pretty much stayed the same. The rooms are a bit dated and have a very 1980's build quality, but they are very clean and the Murphy bed is surprisingly comfortable.... More

We have been coming here for the past 15 years. We try to get down at least twice in the Spring and summer and always spend Thanksgiving here. The rooms are great, best ones are 106,107, and 108. They have recently updated the windows and are in the process of updating the interior. Great pool, great hot tub, and it's... More

Always clean. In the past I stayed here often. It has always been clean . The location is fantastic. On the beach and 3 blocks from the bay. I have always loved the concept. There is a small kitchen area supplied with utensils and pots and pans. There are books, free movies and fresh popcorn to eat while watching. The... More

I have been staying at the Surf Club since it was actually the Royal Surf Motel 25(?) years ago? You can't beat the size of the rooms at the Surf Club. While the rooms may lack balconies you get the xtra space inside the rooms! Personally I would recommend the large ocean view room over the ocean front or the... More
