“Great Location - Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This motel is perfectly situated - far enough away from the bars and restaurants but so close to the beach. The staff was super friendly and accommodated our every need. The rates were excellent. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because all of our sheets had hair. The front desk changed them right away but the fresh ones also had hair. We just pulled them off and went on with our lives. We thought maybe the detergent used and/or the washers and dryers created static so that hair stuck to the sheets. Either way, it was annoying but not really their fault, though a solution would be nice. Last of all, don't book this expecting a 5 star hotel. This is a motel and like all motels, only the basics are provided. No fancy rooms or appliances - just the basics. You come here for the location after all and who wants to spend a lot of time inside the rooms when the beach is a five minute walk?

If you decide to visit Dewey Beach, DE...I strongly recommend The Bay Resort. It is a great motel, the staff is friendly and more than helpful. The room was immaculate and most rooms have a small kitchenette, there is also coffee available in the office all day long. I stayed on the poolside, which was fine but I'm sorry I didn't spend the few extra dollars to be on the bay side which appeared to be much more quieter. The motel is off the main road and much quieter at night. This is a hidden treasure in Dewey Beach as you have to look a little bit to find it...you won't see it from the main road driving through Dewey Beach but its well worth the easy search to find it.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a view, go bay side and pay the extra $$...however if you have children pools...

Driving up to The Bay Resort, I was kind of skeptical.. but this was an awesome place to stay. Beautiful view of the bay, large swimming pool with plenty of seating. Outdoor seating area and dock to step out on. Kitchenette for people on a budget. clean rooms!

just across the street from the beach and plenty of places to eat within walking distance.. I will definitively be back!

Room Tip: room 201 had a great view

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. Our efficiency was on the 3rd floor with a bay view - superb! The staff are very friendly and the efficiency (we had 2 x queen beds) was a good size. The building itself is not an architectural wonder but once you are in your room you can enjoy the superb bay view.
The only minor point is that the balcony is bit small and you cannot switch the balcony light off at night. There is ample parking and the location is excellent - just a short walk to the beach. I have one major complaint (at myself) - stay longer next time!

Room Tip: the bay view is superb so I would choose a room on the bay side (3rd floor)

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!

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
