We had a two night stay at Beach House Dewey. It was a midweek stay. It wasn't busy. They are really on the beach. You don't have to cross a street, awesome for family with kids. The room was bright and big. I love the floor choice, no sand in carpets. It was almost warm enough to dive in the pool. They had a grill available which would be nice if we stayed a little longer (not sure if it is available to guests). The bed was really comfy and the shower great (loved the little hooks on the wall to hang towels). I definitely will be back.

The room was modern and updated. Very comfortable and clean. Staff very nice at check in. It was a great location for walking everywhere in Dewey and even into Rehobeth if you wanted. It was just kind of noisy. We were on the end unit and the traffic in the morning woke us up along with the trash pick up. That is not the hotel fault its just the only issue I had with the hotel.

Although this hotel could be noisy during peak season, we had no issues. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating. Very CLEAN, which is a priority for me. Close to the beach and definitely worth the price. I’d highly recommend this place! P.S. Bring your own coffee pot 😎

Nice hotel, close to everything. Price is up there, but all of Dewey is more expensive these days. We came to this hotel years ago, when it was the Sand Palace. We decided to stay this year for a quick beach getaway. Rooms are nice, but can use some TLC. It would be nice if the office could have a complimentary morning coffee station. All in all, a nice getaway from responsibilities.

This hotel has a great location but is across the street from a night club which made sleep challenging. They advertise that the rooms have balconies but it is a walkway, not a balcony. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful but it would have been nice not to need them. We were short on towels & one of the beds didn’t have a top sheet. They never put the top sheet on so we had to ask again & did it ourselves. The room was clean but the tub was dirty. Inspite of some of these disappointments & challenges we had a good weekend but we will look for somewhere else next time.

Hello and thank you for staying with us. It seems your stay was less than stellar. We're sorry for the towel shortage it's been a real challenge this year and we're working on a solution. Dewey is a party town and not for everyone, as it does tend to be loud but please give us a chance in the off season, it's much quieter and less crowded.

Love this spot! Elite location, right on the beach and right next to all the bars and restaurants that make Dewey great. Pool is great for my kids and the staff was super sweet to my daughters. Stone Pony donuts for breakfast too!

Decided to stay an additional night in Dewey Beach and was pleasantly surprised that this hotel was available, affordable, clean, convenient, and close to all of the nightlife and beaches. The room was clean, and so was the bathroom, which is a huge plus for someone with OCD. Could use a little updating on the exterior, but it's a dog friendly hotel - another great move! When booking a room with two beds, make sure you sleep in the bed farthest away from the A/C unit - since if you're near it, you wake up as a freeze-pop and get blasted with air that nearly blows you off the bed.

The rooms are satisfactory and the water pressure is great. Howwever, it’s the team that really makes this place shine. I hope you get to experience the sugar plum fairy that is Gloria upon check-in - talking to her is worth the price of admission alone. Everyone else (including fellow guests and the housekeeping team) is full of smiles, too. I can’t wait to get back here! Being on the Atlantic side is nice, too, meaning you don’t have to worry about heavy summer traffic when you’re heading out to catch some waves. Thanks for a great stay!
