if you like being on the beach and taking your dog this is the place to go. older rooms but kept fairly updated, tile floors would be better as the carpet always seems to be damp. can only speak of the first floor as that is the dog rooms. but clean and friendly and great beach access. restaurants and shops...

We have stayed in the Villas before, with a good experience, but our last trip was literally a nightmare. The Motel and adjoining Villas were full of drunk, rude, obnoxious parents and children from a baseball league in town for a tournament. They took over the pool, played loud music all day and late at night. My kids couldn't go... More

We just returned from a long weekend stay at the Adam's Oceanfront and I could not be happier. We stayed in a Villa and when I made the reservation several months ago, I got the last Villa and I was told at that time, it was one of the Villa's with out an ocean view. I was fine with that,... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the last 9-10 years. It's my favorite hotel in the area. It's away from the riff raff, ON the ocean, has a nice pool, etc. The rooms are always clean. They aren't fancy but this isn't the Four Seasons in a major city...it's the beach & about as good as it... More

My girlfriend and I decided last minute, spur of the moment, to head to the beach on Friday the 12th of September (2014). We were taking her dog, and just getting away for the night. We headed toward Deleware with no real idea where we were going to stay, which beach, etc. On the way my girl was calling hotels,... More

I didn't know what to expect and I heard that Dewey could be a little rowdy and a party beach. We were there during the week, so maybe we missed any rowdiness but everything was fen. Location couldn't have been better and we were able to bring the dog. The negatives were that the room had ants, which would get... More

What a great place and the price was excellent. It is oceanfront but from the first floor you have a view of the dunes but it is a very short walk to the beach. The room was a bit musty but that is not unusual being at the beach. We brought our dog and it was good. The place is... More
