I stayed at Beach House Dewey for a few days last week and had a wonderful time. Our room was on the second floor and looked like it had just be remolded. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean and at night it was quiet. The best part about the hotel though is the location. It is the best you could ask for as you are on the beach AND just a short walk (across the street) to all of the restaurants and bars. During the day, we went to the beach, sat by the hotel pool and went to the Starboard. The trip was a great time and I would certainly stay here again.

This place is by far the best place I've stayed in, people are friendly and it's right beside bars restaurants, I will definitely return. I spent 2 nights there and didn't want to leave. It's a must place people.

Not having been to Dewey before, I booked this hotel based on the modern look and location. I could not have been more pleased. I organized a bachelorette party, and the rooms were so cute and modern looking, it really added to the whole ambiance of decorating a party in a hotel room. The staff was very friendly, and the hotel was located right in the middle of everything (close to the beach and to the bars!). The pool was clean and had a lot of people to hang with. I wouldn't call this a family hotel, but definitely a good choice for people looking to party.

I wanted to write while the experience was fresh (and I am sitting here packing to leave...can't get more fresh!)

My husband booked in advance, but tells me he didn't get a confirmation email, even with them taking his email address. Still he called to verify dates of stay a few weeks ago, and then yesterday before check in. "Yes," they said,"you're good" they said (I witnessed those calls)...come to find that they only really had us in for one night and now we're forced out as they're booked solid. How this gross error in communication happened, I don't know, but now we have no place to go as places around here are booked solid. This is precisely why confirmation emails are so important. Otherwise -

The room - bright with no clutter, so that was nice..but there was hair in the bed when we arrived, and that kind of grosses me out...

Beach access is easy, another plus...

Somebody made good coffee in the lobby...

I dunno. I just wish things had gone nicer. Today is my birthday and now the husband are away from our home with our 5 month old, and most hotels booked up...it's either find a cheap place away from the beach, or cut our vacation short and drive home.

Dear Guest,

I would first like to sincerely apologize for the miscommunication that occurred and disrupted your vacation. It is my understanding that you booked through a third party website. When booking through one of these sites, generally that site will confirm your reservation. Even though this is the case, we would like to accept responsibility for the mix-up, and are now working to ensure that this issue does not reoccur.

We are honored to receive your business, and we truly hope to have the opportunity to make it up to you in the future. If you book on the beachhousedewey website, we can guarantee the lowest possible price and avoid all possible confusion. Please come see us again in Dewey!

Sincerely,
The Beach House Dewey Management Team

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were nice and roomy, and stylish. Colors were bright and cool, and rooms were open and light-filled. During the week, the hotel had several families who enjoyed the pool and fun family activities at the beach right behind the hotel (e.g. beach movie night and bonfire). There was easy access to Rehobeth by trolley with a stop right across from the hotel. One negative, was slow house keeping and limited cleaning (staff skipped shower each day and left plenty of sand). That said, this was a minor negative given all the positives and we look forward to returning. Great, easy, fun, affordable family vacation!

All parts of the hotel are remodeled. Everything is in pristine condition. Best bargain at the beach!! I've stayed in a lot of hotels. This one was a really pleasant surprise. Front office was very helpful. It's right in the center of all the action too!!
