We stayed here for two nights over Labor Day. The location might be okay if you're 21 and ready to hit the bars, but the room was gross. The bathroom walls had holes from water damage, the kitchenette was falling apart, the AC barely worked, the WiFi was terrible and I woke up with bugs in the bed. Never again.... More

Each representative of the Oceanside's staff were friendly, courteous & helpful with questions. It is a short walk down the street & over the dunes to the beach which my two Golden Retrievers thought was great. I had stayed at the Atlantic Oceanside at this location quite a few years ago & I was disappointed with the upkeep of the... More

Just returned today from a five day stay with husband and two dogs. The hotel is convenient to everything Dewey Beach has to offer. Dewey is a party town. So there are a lot of bars and drunk people around. The beach is one block behind the hotel which is nice. They have a small pool that is nice to... More

Right across from the Bottle and Cork make this the loudest hotel/motel ever. I like Dewey beach but Jeesh! Zero security, screaming drunks every night, beer cans piled high outside several rooms and rampant pot smoking make this place not so great. There is a small pool, they do take dogs, there are bike racks in the back lot and... More

Motel is on same side of beach, so no need to cross busy road...and it's a short walk. We stayed here because of motel being known to be dog friendly. There is small pool on site, which is always filled with kids -- so not a calm setting. We only had noise first night of four when a group partied... More

Very nice, clean, a little noisy in the bedroom. Sirens, motorbikes !! Great access to the beach! Dog loved it. Great for walking to the shops and restaurants!! No one told us to get the dog license at the visitors center on sat and sun. It's on the Main Street. Driving is crazy but a fun town great short distance... More

We've stayed here off and on for over 25 years. This is a beach motel, I get it, but it is time to update, clean up and modernize. Bathrooms need work. Time to reinvest in comforters and carpeting. Painting is due.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights on our silver anniversary trip! A great little motel that gave us our first beach experience! We loved that we could sit on the deck and people watch and the traffic! We have three dogs who stayed at home but we're thrilled to know they are so pet friendly! Less than... More
