Very clean room and bathroom was more modern then hotels in the area. Loved the pool and being by the bay. Perfect location right next to the North Beach bar with the Starboard only a couple blocks away. Will definitely come again!

Everyone was wonderful! The room was very clean and cleaning people made a point to come everyday at a great time to clean the rooms. The location was great and the view from the back was relaxing. I will be back!!

This place was perfect for us. Everything was very nice. And the location was PERFECT! The access to the beach is amazing. You're so close to either bayside or walking to the ocean. Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. We didn't need anything other than what we had close by. Could the rooms be more updated? Sure.. But... More

Excellent stay. Room service was terrific with great attention to detail. Nice quality materials in rooms. Staff always friendly and ready to assist. Rooms were quiet and did not hear people next door.

Very respectful place. Never a problem for the staff to help. Definitely will recommend them to friends. Very clean and up to date rooms. Parking was not an issue. I liked that our room was ready upon our early arrival.

When picking a hotel for staff and people we support it becomes difficult to find a hotel that is accommodating. It was reported back to us that everyone there was very kind and helpful. The rooms were clean and well maintained. Another staff who was on the trip booked her own family vacation here while on her visit. The only... More

My kids and I have stayed at this motel every year for seven years. I love the staff. They are the friendliest people I have ever met in customer service. The rooms are always clean, property is always clean and beautifully kept. This is not a fancy resort, it is a family motel and I feel safe and relaxed while... More

There are very few waterfront hotels in Dewey and Rehoboth. This one has a beautiful view of Rehoboth Sound and is just two blocks from the beach. The efficiency rooms make it very convenient and comfortable to stay.

Thank you for the review. You are correct. We are the only hotel in Dewey located on the Rehoboth Bay. The sunset views and animal watching on the bay make a great reason to stay with us, but that's not the only reason. We are still conveniently located a short walk to the beach on the Atlantic Ocean, as well... More
