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

We were looking for a pet friendly beach vacation since we had adopted a rescue pup in June 2014 and wanted to take her with us. My husband and I lived in Delaware for a few years and knew the DE beaches well. We were happily surprised to find that Dewey Beach is very pet friendly. Adam's Ocean Front was... More

We stayed in a villa in May 2015. We had a partial view of the ocean and loved it. We did see the 2 ocean front villas, but I really don't know if they would be worth the extra money that you have to pay to get them. You still have to cross the dunes to get to the ocean,... More

If too many people find out about how great this place is I'll never be able to get a reservation again! I was expecting to sacrifice quality for a great price for 3 nights at the beach. Ok, they had coffee and donuts instead of a full breakfast buffet....but great coffee and breakfast were only 70 yards away at Sharkeys.... More
