The suites are approx. 4-5 blocks NORTH of the motel on the same road (Coastal Highway/Route 1), Unfortunately not oceanfront, however a short walk thru residential side streets to the beach. The Suites are much nicer & newer than the motel rooms, both in terms of size, amenities, and location! There are also grills outside in the courtyard, as well as tables and chairs to relax during the evening. Rite next door is a farm stand/market, (Fifer Orchards), great for breakfast, lunch, fresh fruit, etc....Plenty of grass areas nearby to walk dogs. Note, while it is a long walk, we have walked to Rehoboth Beach from here! We have stayed at the Sea Esta IV, and were happy, but it is a very basic motel room. All of the Sea Esta Motels are Clean, but basic acommodations, useful & functional.Friends of ours have stayed at Adams Oceanfront(with their dogs), and had no issues and were happy there, except for the stairs to their unit, so they now stay with us at The Atlantic Oceanside Suites as they prefer a ground floor room. We spend a week there every year ( over 10+ years now!) during October for our Annual Greyhounds Reach the Beach Event. I hope I was of some help, if I can help further (dog friendly places/restaurants, etc....) please let me know.
