This place is ran by the nicest people. We enjoyed our stay and it was a very clean and nice room. When we checked out we were an hour away and they called us to tell us we left my daughters teddy bear behind. She's slept with it every night for 3 years. They not only mailed it back to... More

This motel is so great. Clean and comfortable, great rates, wonderful fun loving staff. They really respond to all your needs. We had a "GREAT" time. Front row seat to the Atlantic. Fun watching the dogs play on the beach. Good restaurants are only a short walk away. The Jolly Trolley will take you to Rehoboth for a reasonable rate.... More

Ocean view, parking, clean pool. Finally had a room with a refrigerator larger then the 4x4 square one that sat on a luggage stand. Bathroom in our room repainted & new small tv. Seems they have done some updates since the last 15 years. More still needed. Bed spreads from the 60's. The pool is usually nice & clean till... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful, clean rooms, with simple amenities in room, refrigerator, hair dryer. Beverages, fruit and donuts available in the morning. Access to microwave in office. Dog friendly. Convenience store on... More

Great rates, perfect location, and friendly staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Reminded me of the hotels we stayed in as kids. Quiet area. All rooms are Beachfront. We will definitely be back!

Location, location, location. Stayed 4 nights with two kids, ages 1 & 4. Standard room is just that, standard, no frills, but you can't beat the location. Recommend 2nd or 3rd floor room with view of the ocean and great breeze. Made for a nice spot to enjoy evening cocktails once the kiddos went to sleep. It's not a five... More

We absolutely loved loved the Adams Oceanfront. The rooms were clean, the beds were so comfortable and thick. The staff were SO very friendly and we loved that we could bring our dog on our trip. Every morning hotel staff would clean the pool for an hour, the landscaping was beautiful and the pool was SO very nice. We will... More

Just returned from our annual stay at Dewey Beach, the last three years staying at Adams Oceanfront. We travel with 20 family members, some of which rent out the motel rooms. We rented a villa for the week. So nice! Lots of room, very convenient, especially with little ones. Close to the beach and pool area. The Villa is clean... More

This was our first time staying at a hotel in Dewey Beach, but we're SO glad we chose Adam's! The front-desk staff was stellar, the rooms were bright and airy (every room has an OCEAN VIEW), and the kids went bananas over the pool. It was so close to everything (restaurants, shopping for the girls, the beach, etc.), that we... More

A lot of BA's (backasses) stay here and smoke outside which makes me sick. I have kids and don't want them around that garbage. Pool is nice and the beach access is nice. If you have a BA in the room next to you, ask to move when you check in. Front dest people are wonderful.
