If you can, get a room with a Bay View. Very nice place to stay, close to everything and affordable!! I would definitely stay again and recommend to friends :) The staff was extremely helpful and rooms were clean!

Love the location, staff, pool, and recent room updates. I tried a couple other places many years ago and realized that the Bay Resort is the best spot a while back and have been coming here exclusively ever since.

We have been coming to Dewey Beach since 2001 and I can't think of any place I would rather stay. We love the location right in the middle of Dewey. Also it is just far enough away from Hwy 1 that you don't get all of the noise from the businesses up there. The staff is fantastic and nothing is... More

We have been coming to Dewey Beach for over 20 years. Bay Resort is our favorite place to stay. The beds are very Comfortable, the room has everything you need, decent sized refrigerator, air works great, and the rooms were clean. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.

Our 3rd floor bayside room was awesome. Beds were quite comfy and the room and entire property was meticulous. Never met a friendlier staff. We parked the car and never moved it. Walk to beach restaurants and shopping.

Excellent motel and fantastic staff, all of the folks here are wonderful, rooms are clean, property is well maintained and we had a great time. would definitely return and recommend to others, most rooms have kitchenettes and the refrigerator is not one of those dorm room sizes.

The staff was super friendly. The bed was terribly uncomfortable, there were ants in the room and the carpets were very dirty. Our feet were dirty after a shower walking from the bathroom to the bed..
