Wow! Thank you for the detailed review of your most recent stay, but also for your loyalty to The Bay Resort. We truly cannot think of anything better than seeing our guests return year after year. It is our aim to exceed our guest's expectations with each return visit. We love to hear our guest's feedback on all of the nearby restaurants! Guests of The Bay Resort are just two blocks from dozens of award-winning restaurants, shops, nightlife, and so much more! Thank you for choosing to celebrate your birthday with us this year. Our motel serves as a wonderful location for celebration, including our close proximity to Main Street, as well as a variety of amenities right on property including our private pier, rentals on site, and comfortable and clean accommodations. We even have a sandy cove for silent and peaceful reflection. Our staff is always thrilled to see our guests return and it always puts a smile on our faces. We look forward to seeing you again in the 2019 season!

Love this place! Beautiful views of bay, nice clean rooms, handy kitchenettes, and very helpful staff. And quiet in off-season fall and spring. It's very close to Rehoboth and all the shopping, close to the beach, and fabulous sunsets.

Stayed in a top floor 2-bed efficiency room and everything was fine. Water views from the balcony were great! This is not a posh place by any means, but clean and comfortable and a great location. No elevator but stairs were covered and not that much of a trek. Weekend rates m

Good inexpensive location if you like watching the sunset. 1 block from restaurants and within walking distance of the beach. Nice comfortable room with kitchenette. Not all vending machines work but that's okay. Probably a cold place to stay in the fall/winter since it's not

Went for jazz fest which featured brunches so we didn't need a daily breakfast and instead searched for a view. This hotel overlooks the bay and has a wonderful view, complete with dock, heron and buoy.
