My wife and I stayed at the Atlantic Oceanside Motel with some friends as a last trip to the beaches this year. In our opinion, when affordability, location (whether you are there for the beach or the nightlife), and quality are calculated in, the motel was a great choice and we would definitely go back.
The cost was very affordable, especially considering the location. There will be an additional cost (it was $10 per person, per night for us) if there are more than two staying in a room.
The location is right on Rt 1. in the heart of Dewey Beach. It is one block from the beach. It is also a very easy walk to all of the best known bars and restaurants in Dewey. Of course, it is a 2 minute walk to the closest Jolley Trolly stop that will take you into Rehoboth.
The motel itself is a typical open air walkway, older, beach hotel. However, it is well maintained by an attentive and friendly staff. There is a small pool area that is well maintained. There is also a large second floor balcony with tables and chairs overlooking the main drag through town. The rooms are slightly dated with a tube TV and a refrigerator in every room (two beds or one king are available). The bathroom is small, dated but functional. More importantly it was clean.
So overall, we were pleased with our stay. The 4 star rating is relative to the fact that it is a Dewey Beach hotel without the expectation of luxury. It was clean, convenient, and affordable with a nice staff. We plan on returning and recommend it.
