We had a great stay at the well maintained historic Addy Sea for 4 nights. It is an amazing location right on a beautiful,clean beach. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. We enjoyed our breakfast every morning and felt they made a real effort to mix up the breakfast offering every day. They also generously offer to make a... More

Our recent three-day stay at the ADDY SEA located on the beach in Bethany Beach, Delaware provided us with beautiful sunrises and moonlit ocean views. A warm and personable staff that acquaints its guests to the various amenities that the Inn has to offer runs the Inn established in the early 1900's. In addition to providing beach towels, beach chairs... More

We just returned from our summer weekend stay at the Addy Sea B&B. The Victorian rooms are each unique and clean. Our room#3 had a jacuzzi which we didn't use and looked 'just OK' Breakfast was delicious and we really enjoyed being able to take it outside on the beautiful wrap-around porch. We enjoyed the Saturday afternoon cheese & wine... More

This is a nice B&B conveniently located right on the beach. It's an older home with all that entails but is wonderfully decorated in Victorian style with a lovely wrap around porch and lots of comfortable chairs. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of fresh fruit, eggs, bacon and other deliciously prepared foods. The rooms are very comfortable. I enjoyed the... More

Thank you so much for your kind review, Janet. Ah yes, the parking situation. We do have 5 rooms that receive paid parking passes in the municipal lot since we have 13 rooms and only 8 reserved spots. The beauty of the daily passes, however, is that you can use them almost anywhere in Bethany Beach with a few exceptions.... More

My fourth time to the Addy Sea but possibly the last. The porch and setting remain lovely, the breakfasts wonderful and the staff as helpful as they could be. Complimentary refrigerated beverages were provided. Still charming but at $350 + a night, I was surprised that the mattress was so old, it was sunken, the bedspread and shams soiled, and... More

This charming B & B in Bethany Beach is perched right on the ocean. It should have been better than it was. Monday and Tuesday are best for breakfast when Peggy is making magic things happen in the kitchen and Donna is at the desk. We had contracted for a room that was the favorite of other regular guests.

Our bed squeaked every time we moved. The jacuzzi tub had black mold and everything felt so dirty. I would never recommend this place. We never received a tea service because " The hotel was at full capacity" , if you say that is an amenity you provide you should have it. They only offered us clean towels once and... More

Supposedly a romantic victorian b and b. Decor is dated furniture from the 1980's - not antique. Rooms are odd - sinks in the bedroom. No elevator, no porter/bell hop, no phones, no televisions. There is a municipal parking lot right next to the inn, so you have a nice view of that and the accompanying noise. The staff is... More

This is the second time we've stayed here. It's absolutely lovely. Truly a Victorian style inn. Each room is different. We booked room 10 this year for a panoramic view of the ocean. Breakfasts are delicious and the afternoon sweets are irresistible. We have already reserved for next year.
