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.

We stayed one night in the motel & 2 nights in a villa. We were not crazy about the motel...the beds were not comfortable & squeaked whenever someone moved, it was outdated & just not very cozy. The ocean view was nice from the 2nd & 3rd floor shared walkway. Pets are allowed on the 1st floor. There is a... More

The Adams Oceanfront is a hidden gem in Dewey. The owners and staff and friendly, the rooms are clean, and the location cannot be beat. They recently updated their decks, too, which face the ocean and feature fun little rocking chairs. You can walk to everywhere in Dewey, yet when you head back to the motel, it's peacefully quiet. Love... More

have been coming to Adams in Dewey for years...since our kids were pups. Have always had a great time and now that they are older...still having a great time. It's the perfect location at a great beach. kids can walk anywhere safely yet still enough fun for the adults. staff is always friendly, great pool, and right on the beach.

My family and I stayed here this past week and couldn't have been more pleased. The location was PERFECT! Steps from the beach and within walking distance to anything you want to do in Dewey! Definitely family friendly, we felt welcome from the minute we pulled into the parking lot. It's also just a quick trip on the Jolly Trolly... More
