Kitchen and Utensils need Updated. Nice location and the Staff are Very Good though. This area is not for young kids, Bars are everywhere, it`s only 2 blocks to the beach, which is Nice. If you have children, go to Rehobeth.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. You are correct that there are bars in Dewey, but many people consider Dewey a family town. There are several activities during the summer for families including family movie night on the beach and bonfires on the beach. Our property is a bit secluded and removed from the bar scene,...

Have been coming here for several years now. The initial reason was the kitchenettes, and now I return because the price is right during off-season, and the location and the staff are great. Hope to be back next year.

Dan and his staff have no competition! They excel at everything! Always pleasant, willing to help and quick with suggestions when needed. I've been staying here as long as I can remember and remarkably, they keep getting better and better. How do you improve upon perfection?

Bay Resort provides a clean comfortable room with all the amenities--hair dryer, iron, etc. The desk staff are like family--They greet the guests warmly, extend themselves to make you welcome and to make sure that you have everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The view of the bay is beautiful.

The Bay Resort is a locally run business and the staff are very friendly--they really make you feel at home. Probably the best part are the bay views. You can walk out to the bay and rent a kayak or just walk on the pier. The pool is very clean. This hotel is in the heart of Dewey and you...

We come back to the Bay Resort just about every year. We are always greeted by a friendly staff and enjoy the calm retreat of the bay. We prefer the quiet of the bay side but the ocean is a short walk away.
