“Wonderful all around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This was my family's first trip to The Bay Resort, as well as to Dewey Beach. We really loved this place. The people at the front desk were fantastic to deal with, the room was very clean, the view of the bay was beautiful, and the pool was the perfect temperature every time! I would definitely stay here again, and will recommend it to friends and family. We hope to visit Dewey Beach again soon - we just loved it!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

This is what I would like to be able to say is an average beach motel. Unfortunately so many have gotten so dirty and disgusting. The furniture is the average out dated, run down beach furniture. However it was all very clean! The front desk staff was out-of-their-way nice! It was pretty waking up every morning and looking right out to the bay. I would be curious to see a few other places in Dewey for a fair comparison but,saying that, i would also feel comfortable recommending The Bay Resort to anyone looking for a place in Dewey. We liked the town so much that next time we MAY rent a house and stay longer.

Room Tip: We were on the bay side first floor, in my opinion the best

We just stayed at the Bay Resort for 2 days, a last minute trip decision. If you have been to Dewey, you know it's a party town. I was worried about renting a hotel room, but once we checked in we were thrilled. It was very clean and nice. Cleanliness is the most important factor for us. I am a bit of a clean freak and we take our own blankets when we stay somewhere. The Bay Resort did not disappoint. For the rate we paid, it was quite a deal. I will be back!

Stayed Sunday through Friday in a second floor room with a view of the bay. The sunsets were great. We sat on the balcony quite a bit. Since it was just me and my husband the room was a good size. I think the bathroom would be a little small for more than two people. The location was good, within walking distance of everything there is to see in Dewey. The beach is just two blocks away, not far at all. The best review I can give is to say I would stay there again without a doubt.

Room Tip: Families with kids might like the pool side rooms best.

We just got back from 4 days and 3 nights at the Bay Resort in Dewey Beach. We had a great time, the room was clean, the little kitchenette was well equipped, and the staff was fantastic! We like the option of making our own meals, so we stopped at a farm stand on the way down to load up on fresh fruits and veggies and found a great seafood market, we were eating gourmet all the way. The beach was a walk away and we kayaked out the back of the motel. This is a family friendly place, I hear it can get rowdy at times but when we were there it was very peaceful. We will be back!

We love this property for our visit to Dewey. I wish they had some sort of suite for more room but overall this property is clean and convenient. Our second year there and we plan to visit in the fall with a few couples!

We have been staying @ this motel for years.
Once again it was a great stay.
Rooms were fresh & very clean. The staff was helpful & friendly.
We had a pool view, but the bays view is also nice.
It is in walking to the ocean. We would do the pool first...then walk to the beach & return to relax at the pool again.

Great trip
And they have Wi-Fi!

Room Tip: Check out is @ 10, but they will let you stay & use the pool & facilities.
