!st time we stayed there because we have a small dog which they allow, but only on the 1st floor. We didn't have a view because of the dune in front but if you don't have a dog I would suggest the 2nd or 3rd floor so that you can see the sand and the ocean. Beautiful large porch with... More

This is our 2nd year coming here. Found Adams on the Internet. Great location! Price was reasonable. Room was clean. The staff is very accommodating, welcoming, helpful. We had a wonderful stay here. Already booked our room for next year. Plan on staying here whenever we visit Dewey DE. 👍🏼👍🏼

This was a nice place to stay at the beach! It was smack dab in the center of Dewey - just walk to restaurants, bars, grocery stores. Best part was the beach being so close. We stayed on the 3rd floor, which has a great Ocean view and nice rocking chairs on the community balcony. My son and his girlfriend... More

I have been staying at Adams Oceanfront for many years now with my dogs and I love it there! Great location, just a walk to the beach, they've upgraded the porches so now there's a "platform" in the midst of the stairway on the end (makes it easier for my dogs to go up and down), and the rooms are...

Another week and another great vacation! As before the Adams Oceanfront was a great value and comfortable stay. Staff is responsive. This time we brought our Kuerig coffee maker which helps immensely, especially in offseason. They do set up coffee and donuts by 7-7:30 but we are early risers. Also there are great breakfast restaurants within a short 10 block... More

We stayed in this motel twice. The first year was no perfect but not bad. It is dog friendly and we did bring the dog therefore I was not expecting it to be fancy or newer. This visit however was significant for an ant problem. There were ants everywhere. It was disgusting. The office was not concerned and their solution... More

Went down for a girl's bachelorette weekend. The villas were very clean and well kept and stocked. Beds were fairly comfortable. It is steps from the beach and has a nice small pool. Very centrally located to restaurants etc.
