The Bay Resort
Ranked #1 of 13 Hotels in Dewey Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 5, 2011

We have been staying at Bay Resort several times a year for several years now and after having tried many other places in the Rehoboth/Dewey area over the years, Bay Resort is the BEST!!!! The bay views and sunsets are spectacular, the rooms are always very clean, the staff is exceptionally nice and accomodating, and the location is the perfect blend of the quiet bay with a short walk to the beach/bar/restaurant excitement.

The small kitchen in each room has proven to be perfect for an easy breakfast, cold drinks and sandwiches for the beach. The balcony with the table from the room is the best spot for eating in the area.

With check-out at 11:00, it has always been great that if they are not booked, they have allowed us to leave the car in the lot while we spent the day on the beach before leaving.

Bay Resort has become our home away from home and we highly recommend it to all visiting the area.

This is not a resort, it is a good hotel in a great location. This place is in the heart of Dewey Beach on the sound side. You have to walk across the street to get to the beach, but it's not a long walk. All of the night life is close to this resort though. You really can just park your car for the weekend.

The rooms are fine- you just sleep there, right? I did not spend much time in the room. The bathrooms are fine, but the shower was a bit small for a tall person- 5 foot 9. There also seemed to be a fly problem on the 2nd floor. They also have a cute little kitchen with a little oven, micro and fridge.

I would go to this place again- I don't think there is anything better with this location.

Don't expect much more than a nice, simple,clean motel, but for the price it was an exceptional value. It is less than a 2 minute walk from the beach, has a great view of the bay (if you pay a few extra dollars), has nice-clean rooms with a fridge and stove. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms new and clean. Staff was very friendly and the the pool was nice (but small). All in all a great deal, but if you want a real "resort" you will have to book a room on the ocean and spend 3 times more.

I had a few spare days and decided to go the beach. Read the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give the Bay Resort a try. I was extremely pleased the air in the room was on when I entered, the room very clean and fresh, large white towels in the bath.
The day I checked out I was able to leave my car parked in their lot until afternoon. They also offered use of the pool and outside shower. The hotel staff was Aplus...extremely friendly in a natural way. Best believe I am coming back!

PS> Beds and pillows were very comfortable !!

We had a beautiful unit overlooking the bay. It was kept very clean and the staff was very nice and friendly. We had balcony and small refr and stove. It was big enough for me to make breakfast and sandwiches for the beach. Only problem is the beach within walking distance does not have any restrooms at all. As it was way to far to walk back, we used the public beach instead.

Just got back from a 5 day stay at Bay resort. This is definitely not a "resort" but it is a nice motel. The rooms seemed clean, the staff was extremely friendly and happy to help with any questions. There was a nice outdoor pool although not heated it was warm enough for the kids to enjoy while we were there. The cleaning people did a fantastic job. One day we left dishes to be washed when we got back from the beach, but when we got back we found the cleaning people to have done them even though this is not one of their responsibilities when cleaning the room. We had no issues with noise and the motel is located on a nice, quiet street.
There were a couple of things we didn't like. Even though the rooms seemed clean the carpet was very dirty. After walking in our bare feet for a couple of minutes our feet would be black with dirt so I would advise bringing a pair of slippers. The pictures on the website were a little deceiving. We were under the impression there was a nice beach with access to swimming in the bay. This IS NOT the case. There is a sandy area in front of some stagnant water that smelled terrible and the water would not have been fit to swim in, but there is only a short, 5 minute walk down the road to the beach access.
Overall this was a good place for the price we paid. We were looking for an inexpensive place with an efficiency kitchen and it worked for us.
