Great value. The Sea Esta is always clean. It allows dogs and is close to everything.No frills but there is coffee in the morning and a nice quiet place to start your beach day. We have stayed here several times as it is reasonably priced and you may bring your dog.

I was mildly impressed for with this motel given the rate for a weekday right before a 3-day friday holiday weekend ($119/tax). The following weekend night was $299/tax which is not a value relative to other closer options. While .6 of a mile to the Starboard and about a mile to the Rudder, it's a very doable walk. The room... More

I stayed here for the Coastal Delaware Running Festival last weekend. Really liked the feel of a smaller family owned place and the location was great. Amy, the Front Desk clerk was very efficient and friendly. I will be back and I recommend this place highly.

If I could give this 3.5/5 I would. 3 would be a bit harsh, but not quite good enough for a4. First off it would get 5 stars for welcome: it's always nice to be welcomed with a 'I was expecting you Mr x' makes a change from the anonymous chains- although note that reception closes at 9. This is... More

We picked this hotel for a girl's weekend because of it's convenient location. Not needing all "the frills", we were looking for nothing more than a place to rest "our tired bodies". From front desk staff to housekeeping, they were by far some of the friendliest I've experienced in all my traveling years. Rooms were clean and everything operating properly.... More

We had read a number of reviews about Sea Esta IV. We can only wonder if we were staying at the same property as some of the reviewers. We chose the Sea Esta IV as, at the time of booking, we had an older Greyhound who wasn't good on stairs and this hotel has an elevator. After 12 hours on... More

This was the worst place I ever stayed. The toilet was filthy, there was hair in the sink, the rug hadn't been vacuumed, there was a lot of dust on the refrigerator and it needed to be defrosted. The microwave did not work, there was no chain lock, no Do Not Disturb sign, no hangers, only one hand towel and... More

No frills, but a very convenient spot to stay for a quick beach trip. Just a few minutes' drive from the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk and even closer to Dewey. And it's one of the few places that allow dogs if you want to bring your pup along to the beach. The wifi wasn't working when we were there, but that... More

The only good thing about this place is . . . . . . pet fee is only $10 per night per pup AND all the free ice you want. We arrived 8/24/14 to find the room looked exactly like in the photo - that exact same polyester cover on all the beds. There is NO WIFI. They give you... More

The hotel was a very good value for the amount we paid to be so close to the beach in the middle of August. It is clear that this is not the most modern hotel but the room was clean and comfortable. What really pleased me is that I accidentally forgot something in the room and the staff was nice... More
