“Awesome gem in the heart of Dewey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

As a former guest at the sands palace, I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the beach house. Not only were the remodeled rooms excellent, but the staff was even friendlier than I remembered. I cannot wait to spend another weekend in Dewey staying at the beach house!

We were looking for a hotel in close proximity to Delaware Seashore State Park, as we had friends staying there, but looking for something affordable and nice. I had read other reviews on Beach House Dewey mentioning the noise from the nearby clubs. The fact that it HAD clubs within walking distance, made it appealing for us. The room was very well maintained, nice décor, not over the top or extravagant, just a very nice hotel. When we arrived, apparently the prior guests had been smoking (it is a smoke free hotel), but room service was happy to do what they could to resolve it, and the nice folks at the front desk, location of the hotel, and overall accommodations made up for it. It was also in close proximity to Rehoboth, too, so it was a great place to stay!

I recently stayed at The Beach House hotel in Dewey for only one night. Our room was very cute with modern decor. Loved the flooring- waaaay better than carpet. The worst is nasty old carpet in a beach area hotel. We had a 3rd floor room. There's no elevator for those who have difficulty with stairs. We plan on returning next year.

The Beach House is the best place to stay in Dewey. The rooms are super clean and the people who run it are amazing! They are super accommodating and fun. They even have a pool that has its own light show at night. Highly highly recommend this place!

Pictures look better than the real deal. It is a nice motel. If you are looking for a place to sleep while you visit the Dewey Beach/Rehoboth, this may be ok. We considered it "just average". Do not know what else to say ....... Will not let me post with less than 200 characters.

We stayed here while in Dewey Beach for a family wedding. We enjoyed our stay, found the front desk folks more than made up for the elements missing in the room. Like no hair dryer, but they had them at the front desk, likewise an iron and ironing board. All we had to do was ask. The room had been recently updated with a retro feel. No carpeting but being in a beach town that makes sense to me. It was a perfect location to walk Dewey Beach and within close distance to several good restaurants. I would recommend it to to someone looking for something a bit out of the ordinary.

Room Tip: All the rooms wrap around the pool, so I would ask for a room on the second floor. To be a little b...

We recently attended a wedding in the Dewey Beach/Rehoboth area, and stayed at the Beach House Dewey.

When I booked our stay, I don't think I realized that the hotel was actually set up like a typical beach motel: Small "lobby" for checking in and out. No common space, except the pool area. Rooms faced an exterior hall. No elevator (that I could find). No food and beverage outlets.

Also, the hotel is in the midst of a remodel - the pool was being refurbished (rather loudly and messy if I may add) and the exterior spaces were all pretty rough looking. You can tell that its a work in progress.

The rooms were a pleasant surprise. Completely remodeled with big comfy beds, furnishings that belonged in a cool hotel in Miami or LA - that sort of thing. We slept soundly each night. Our rooms were cleaned properly - really no complaints!

As far as location, it can't be beat. Immediate beach access and easy parking. Walking distance to the local restaurants and shops.

So all in all, I think that the new owners of this hotel are on the right track. If the rest of the hotel starts to resemble the rooms, then I think my star rating would go up.

Also, if you're deciding between Rehoboth vs Dewey, pick Rehoboth. Rehoboth is very upscale, quiet, and beautiful. Dewey is like the roudy, drunk younger sister to Rehoboth.

Room Tip: Rooms by the stairwell are noisy, but the window faces the ocean. Rooms away from the stairs are qui...
