We stayed in this motel twice. The first year was no perfect but not bad. It is dog friendly and we did bring the dog therefore I was not expecting it to be fancy or newer. This visit however was significant for an ant problem. There were ants everywhere. It was disgusting. The office was not concerned and their solution... More

Went down for a girl's bachelorette weekend. The villas were very clean and well kept and stocked. Beds were fairly comfortable. It is steps from the beach and has a nice small pool. Very centrally located to restaurants etc.

We stayed one night in the motel & 2 nights in a villa. We were not crazy about the motel...the beds were not comfortable & squeaked whenever someone moved, it was outdated & just not very cozy. The ocean view was nice from the 2nd & 3rd floor shared walkway. Pets are allowed on the 1st floor. There is a... More

The Adams Oceanfront is a hidden gem in Dewey. The owners and staff and friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location cannot be beat. They recently updated their decks, too, which face the ocean and feature fun little rocking chairs. You can walk to everywhere in Dewey, yet when you head back to the motel, it's peacefully quiet. Love... More

have been coming to Adams in Dewey for years...since our kids were pups. Have always had a great time and now that they are older...still having a great time. It's the perfect location at a great beach. kids can walk anywhere safely yet still enough fun for the adults. staff is always friendly, great pool, and right on the beach.

My family and I stayed here this past week and couldn't have been more pleased. The location was PERFECT! Steps from the beach and within walking distance to anything you want to do in Dewey! Definitely family friendly, we felt welcome from the minute we pulled into the parking lot. It's also just a quick trip on the Jolly Trolly... More

Very pleasantly surprised. Hotel is clean, comfortable, and one of the very few in the area that accepts pets. Not exactly on the beach (set back on the other side of a small parking lot, unless you stay in the villas) but still close enough. Big decks with rocking chairs do give a goodt view of the ocean and access... More

Wonderful place to stay!!! The staff has been very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Rooms were nice and clean. Great location. Short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops. Plenty of parking. Highly recommend staying here & planning on coming back again too!

We discovered this gem last year and went back this summer, we weren't disappointed. We'll be back in August. They owners make some kind of improvement each winter and this year they have enlarged the decks and added new chairs. Sitting outside watching the waves and having a drink....so relaxing. Staff is the same, which is so comforting. They love... More
