We stayed at the Atlantic Oceanside Motel for four nights. They are definitely dog friendly - lots of folks with dogs in tow - and VERY close to the beach. (Note that in Dewey Beach, dogs are allowed on the beach in the summer before 9:30 AM and after 5:30 PM, but not during the prime beach-going hours.) The room... More

To start off on the positive, this motel is very close to the beach. It is a very short walk away. There are also a number of restaurants and shops across and down the street. The staff seemed polite courteous. The downside of this motel is this: 1. The rooms are very dated; 2. We had damaged furniture and cabinets;... More

I was looking for a hotel in this general area and I had four criteria- dog friendly, walking distance to the beach, under $200 per night and outdoor pool. I found several hotels that met some of the criteria but not all- Atlantic Oceanside was the only hotel that met all my criteria- is it perfect? No, but it made... More

My boyfriend, dog, and I just returned from a trip to the Atlantic Oceanside Motel. We had room 101, which was right next to the main office in a little alcove. The room was very clean and easily accessible from the parking lots. There are two side streets to reach the beach, which is about half a block away. The... More

We have been taking this vacation for a few years now and coming "home" to this hotel for a few years now. We are always greeted with warm welcomes. The rooms are spotless, you would never know if a pet had been there or not. We don't bring a pet, but enjoy seeing them at the hotel. Karen and her... More

Planned a weekend stay at this place and was not told of the volleyball team that had rented out the whole hotel except one room. They took over the pool for 6 hours on Saturday afternoon and the sun deck for a pizza party. And let's not forget the dogs barking at 7 am. Unless you are a regular at... More

Spent an amazing weekend at the beach and was pleasantly surprised to find a motel that fit into our budget! We had a great time and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff couldn't have been more friendly. We learned from the office staff that they are in the process of renovating and we can't wait to come... More

We too had a problem with Sea Esta I, where we had gone every summer for 20 something years After George sold it, the office staff there was terrible.

Great place to stay for a decent price with dogs! Friendly staff, nice accommodations, great location! We unfortunately had a bad experience with another hotel (Sea Esta Motel 1) and will never be returning to this hotel. We will definitely be utilizing Atlantic Oceanside Motel in Dewey from now on because it truly was the best experience for us and... More
