Could not have been a friendlier or more helpful staff !!All the children take to crabbing on the pier and it feels like a friendly, safe environment. Mostly family oriented ... great location . nice people --good crabbing and access to paddle boards and kayaks right off the back deck..

We had a great time at the Bay Resort. We booked completely last minute but when we called the hotel directly, they had one available room. The view of the bay was beautiful, the walk to the beach is less than 10 minutes and the drive to Rehoboth Beach was about 10 minutes without having to travel on main roads.... More

Great view! Friendly staff. Clean room. Amazing location. We've been coming every year for over 10 years and always look forward to it. Highly recommend for families or a couples getaway. For families ask for a connecting room!

A lot of patrons stay at the Bay Resort Motel every year, and after staying for a week I see why so many people return. Centrally located in the heart Dewey, the Bay Resort Motel is a must stay while vacationing in the southern corner of Delaware. Access to all activities in Dewey, is no more than a short walk...

Great location and a great family getaway! Close to everything...beach, restaurants and bars, shopping, and the boardwalk. I will highly recommend and stay here again. We booked only a week before our trip and were very happy with what we got for our money. Everyone was very friendly too. Very quiet and family friendly.

Thank you for the amazing review. We tend to attract friendly people because we are friendly. This makes it the friendliest place to stay in Dewey Beach. We provide great value for your money and are comparable in price to many other similar hotels, yet we are the only one in Dewey Beach located on the Rehoboth Bay. We can't... More

The hotel was located close to the beach and had a beautiful bayside view with a balcony. It was also within walking distance to many other local attractions. The pool was very pleasant and always clean. The staff was very friendly and courteous and the room was always cleaned in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this hotel to... More

This place is the most tranquil place I have ever stayed. The staff is excellent and the location perfect! The pool is very small if you are pool people, but the ocean is a mere block away and sooo easy to get to. All restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel, making this place very convenient.

Make sure to ask for a room that over looks the bay. The rooms are a good size and have a small frig and stove if you choose to cook. The only food service they offer is coffee, so bring your own. The prices to kayak or paddle board are very reasonable. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write a quick review. Our views of the Rehoboth Bay are spectacular, especially at sunset. The option to rent a kayak or paddle board give you another opportunity to experience the beauty of the Bay. We do have small kitchenettes in each room which provide a great alternative to eating out all of... More

We decided at the last minute to vacation with my daughter and her family who was staying at your facility. First time to Dewey Beach and would come back for sure. It's not as commercialized as Ocean City and is more family oriented. I missed having an elevator but overall a really nice place to stay. Our room was cozy... More

Had a great time. Walking distance to everything we needed. Nice relaxing beach area with Adirondack chairs to watch the sunset. The pool was nice and convient. Parking was close to the room. Kitchen area was great to make breakfast and pack lunch for the beach. My boyfriend had an excellent Brithday.
