“Super friendly place to make a family memory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I found The Bay Resort while roaming around Dewey Beach looking for the spot we used to camp on the beach on the bay. What a perfectly wonderful surprise! We booked immediately and have returned many times. The staff always makes us feel at home. The planned activities for families add to the fun. Did I mention the affordability of this place? The kitchenette really helps us enjoy our vacation and not go broke by eating out every night. The midweek specials make it easy to avoid to crowded Dewey party weekends. We have three generations of happy memories here.

Room Tip: If you are just a couple book the first floor king room on the bayside for the romantic sunsets. All...

Always friendly, Dan and his staff go over and above to make sure you have a wonderful stay. We got married on the little beach/tiki hut out back on the bay. It was small, just family. The staff made sure we had everything we needed and everything came off without a hitch. I've been staying here for at least 25+ years and they never disappoint! Spring, summer and fall, this is the only place to go in Dewey!

Room Tip: I always stay bayside, the sunsets are spectacular!

Like the title says, the hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The location is great for the Dewey Beach social scene, you can easily walk home from all the bars. You can stay on the bay side, or the pool side.

Great location, excellent staff, amazing accommodations. Went for a girls weekend and had beach and pool time. Rooms were in a great location, set aside from most other guests and proved for a great weekend.

What a great weekend. With a hurricane looming we had thoughts of a wet weekend, but NOT!
Great room. So CLEAN! We love this place and staff.
Nice efficiency if u want to eat in...or walking distance to many Dewey eateries.
Fireworks off the bay.
Plan a great visit to the Dewey Beach.

Mid June Stay, Staff was very helpful and full of suggestions for places to eat/drink. Check-in was quick and easy. We had a King, Poolside room. It was perfect size, had stove, microwave, sink, refrig, small dining room table/chairs. Bed and bath were just what you should expect. Clean and housekeeping did a swell job daily. Pool was nice and cool. Bayside dock, beach chairs and hut were all comfy. atmosphere was pleasant though it was one week prior to the beginning of peak summer we had a great time. 2 blocks walk to beach. will be back.............

Just returned from a stay at this hotel - Clean, great staff, beautiful view of the bay, spotless pool area. Dewey Beach is a great wide expanse of beach. Good restaurants within walking distance. And don't forget NO SALES TAX in Delaware!!. Run don't walk to this accommodation.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and the bay lawn area has covered seating.
