We made the unfortunate mistake of booking a summer weekend stay (2 nights) in early August at the Beach House in Dewey Beach, DE and wound up checking out and leaving town a day early. We are in part responsible for not having done adequate research on the party scene that is Dewey. The hotel is central and easily walkable to to the beach, local bars and restaurants, and the recent renovations are visible. However, it is so close (directly across the street) to one particular nightclub, Bottle & Cork, that the bass and drums of the cover bands may as well have come and setup their instruments IN our room for a live performance. The doors and walls are paper thin so if you're looking for a restful, quiet beach getaway do not even think of booking here. In addition to the pounding rock music, the Beach House is a magnet for frat-style bachelor party-types who loiter out by the pool, on the balconies and in the stairwells eating, yelling, belching, drinking and smoking only to leave their remains for you to find the next morning. Understandably a convenient and reliable beach getaway primarily for mid-Atlantic and east coast families, I can't even fathom why any non-frat type of people would consider this hotel.
