This motel is not for those in want of luxury. My first stay here was last year, solo and off season as I did some surf fishing. This year I took my wife 10/24-25 for just a little get away and again off season. The cost ... $45/night less 10% AAA.! Can't beat that with a stick. For that you... More

The rooms are sufficient, clean but alittle small for 4 people. But loved that we could bring our dog with us. The pool is small and in a weird place under the hotel so no sun gets to it - and you can't lay out by the pool, but I am a beach person so that wasn't an issue for... More

We found bugs in the bed and later developed severe bites. Reported to the hotel and got very little response. Called back a few days later and they had no record of my report. To date, almost 2 weeks later, we've not heard that they exterminated or inspected the room. Poor service and responsiveness to this issue.

We stayed for 2 nights and chose because of pet friendly and great price. Large room, no frills but comfortable. The micro and frig were great and convenient. Coffee in the morning ( after 8 am) We felt safe and comfortable. Location was good to drive to the beach and area attractions. Short drive to the Lewes Ferry. Captain's Table... More

At Sea Esta IV the pool was litarally the size of two hot tubs put together, fine if you just wanted to soak for a bit. The Air conditioning in the room we were given was not big enough to even cool the room. After checking things out we discoverd that a 4 block walk to the beach was required.... More

We stayed at the Sea Esta IV for the "Greyhounds Reach the Beach" weekend Oct 9 - 11. We are very picky about hotels and were a little leary about the Sea Esta but were very pleasantly surprised. It's an older property and needs a little updating but it's extremely clean, safe, in a great location off the beach but... More

Very disappointed in this hotel. I have never written a review online before but felt that the owner handled this problem poorly. What happened to customer service. We had no hot water and reported it to the owner. He said that it was an act of God and that he could not do anything to adjust our bill. He explained... More

We booked this stay through the motel's website and phoned them with more then a little skepticism. Normally we book after researching a place to see which is the best bang for the buck. This was last minute and we didn't have time to do that. We were surprised to find the place was convenient to the action, even though... More
