We stay here with our dogs when we visit Ocean City Maryland. It is a very nice, convenient, and clean hotel. The staff is very helpful, especially when making reservations. We have been here several times and it has always made for a great time at the beach.

So, the first room I got smelled like cigarettes. I called and talked with the clerk who was super nice about it, came up, smelled, agreed, and changed my room. The room was clean. The carpet had a small corner tare but it didn't bother me. Housekeeping never came the first day. On other days I was usually there when... More

This was by far the worst hotel that I have ever been in. The room was dirty. The furniture was falling apart. The bath tub looked like it was PAINTED! and the paint was peeling off. We were afraid to take a shower in it. The bed linens looked like they were left over from the previous tenants, We went... More

This was the only hotel I could find close to Rehoboth Beach for the weekend. All others were booked due to an event downtown. The first room I was given had a horrible odor. Once we looked around the room I stepped in water that had pooled up under the AC unit at the window. I immediately went down to... More

I think I would lean more to a 2.5 rating. I decided to go to the beach last minute and found this motel had one room left so I booked it. I was traveling with a dog so the choices were limited. They were very friendly when booking and checking in. The exterior needs a LOT of updating (simple painting... More

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
