“Conviently Close, but too loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The location is fantastic. You really couldn't ask for anything better. We parked our car and walked everywhere we wanted to go. 1/2 block to the beach, several restaurants and a few little shops, and of course the bars all within a few minutes walk. The room was clean and modern. The lack of a closet was a little bit of a downside, but there were a few hooks (cute dog tail ones), so I could kind of hang things instead of having them folded in the dresser. Mini fridge and microwave were great!

The downside, we brought our small children with us so it wasn't my top choice of family friendly. The hotel was mostly college aged party-going people. The music from Bottle & Cork thumped our room (literally) until 1am, and then everyone came back and reveled outside for a while. Our room (103) was directly outside of the pool gate. We didn't even get to use it because everyone else was in it and my 4 year old didn't want to swim with the big people. No big deal, for that really, we came for the beach anyway.

We had dinner at Woody's down the street. Awesome.

All in all, I'd come back with just my husband or a group of friends, but we probably won't bring the kids back.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We stayed two nights and were very pleased with the close proximity to the beach. The room was very modern and clean, but there was no closet to hang up our clothes. I would have preferred a room on the second or third floor since ours was right in front of the pool and picnic tables and you could see through the tinted windows into our room, so we had kept the shades drawn the whole time. Unfortunately, we were kept up til 3AM with the noise of the partiers outside our room and the very loud music from the club across the street. Just because the bars close at 1AM doesn't mean it quiets down. We spent the days on the beach in Dewey and the evenings in Rehoboth. We'd probably just stay in Rehoboth next time.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the first floor.

Great location just off the beach, across from DQ, the Best wings in the area, walking distance from all the bars and restaurants, free onsite parking, and a nice pool. Staff really aimed to please and went out of their way to make our visit enjoyable and hassle free. If your plans take you to Dewey this should be high on your list as wonderful, convenient, newly refurbished, and affordable hotel option in the area.

Room Tip: upper floors closest to the beach work the best.

I thoroughly enjoyed my one night stay at Beach House Dewey last week. Upon arrival (and checkout)we were greeted by efficient and friendly staff. The recently rennovated rooms are bright, trendy chic, and immaculately clean. The beds are comfortable. The pool was inviting and it's just steps to the beach. Parking is free and within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. You can hear the music from the Cork and Bottle but we enjoyed hearing Kellie Pickler's soundcheck before going to the show! If you are planning on attending a show (or not) this is definitely the place to stay.

My wife and I stayed here at the Dewey Beach Hotel for 1 night. The hotel staff was professional and nice to speak with. Our room was on the first floor near the pool. The parking was also free at this hotel. We stayed here because it was right across the street from the Bottle and Cork. The room was clean with two beds. There was also a flatscreen tv, microwave and refrigerator. My only complaint was that the bed I slept on was aweful. It had a huge slant it in, like it was broken. You could lay on it and slide right to the other side. I didn't sleep well at all. For the owners, it was room 102, the bed closest to the window. The Hotel is also a hundred yards or so from the beach. Very nice. We would stay here again and I suggest you give it a shot.

Growing up in the DC area a trip to Dewey beach always meant a start to the summer.
We went down in early June and stayed a weekend at this property. Everything looked new. We had a clean room,and staff seemed to go out of their way. When we did have a problem things were fixed immediately. Best of all it across from Grotto's. I love Dewey because I have friends in both Rehoboth and Bethany, Dewey is the perfect middle ground. Not many choices in Dewey, but this is our first choice.

My family and I recently stayed 2 nights at the Beach House Dewey. Over all it's a nice place. The recently renovated décor is contemporary chic. ...Ikea would be proud... Our room was clean and it was nice to have a mini fridge. There is also a micro wave (we did not use). It's a basic room and for the price and availability (we booked just days before arrival) we were happy to have stayed. The location is great 1 block from the beach. Since parking at Delaware beaches can be a pain, it was nice to walk to the beach and park (for free) at the hotel. There are enough restaurants with in walking distance. (Nalu was a favorite) Others pointed out the noise from the Bottle and Cork, but...I got to hear Kelly Pickler from our room. Although the show was over by 11:30 p.m. Not a big deal. If I were to visit Dewey again, I would consider staying at the Beach House Dewey again.
