“Nice, quiet place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

Did a Thu-Fri night stay here in June, 2011. Right on the beach, our room had a balcony and ocean view. Room and particularly the bathroom were small but clean and the bed was comfortable. This section of Dewey seems quiet, no trouble with partiers keeping us up. Pastries and coffee in the morning and cookies in the afternoon were a nice touch. We liked it, and wouldn't hesitate to book it again.

This is was my third stay at the hotel. Great rates for a hotel right on the beach. The rooms are simple and clean with refrigerators and microwaves in the room. Good breakfast provided. Clean, quiet and friendly staff.

Only spent 2 nights here. Had a room on the top floor to save a few $. Nice enough for the money. Clean and updated. Pleasant staff and housekeeping. This is a pretty good place to stay and I have been meaning to post this for a while. Just get an ocean side room on 2nd or 3rd floor if you want a good view and privacy. See below.

The sundeck has a great view and ambiance. My sundeck room (and I assume the others) had no ambiance. The room had no windows that actually faced the outside world, so the opportunities for air and ocean sound was minimal. The main entry to my room had a large window next to it that could be opened, but it faced into the glassed in corridor that fronted the sundeck. If you open the window in your room, everyone walking by in the corridor will be ;looking in on you. Kind of a bummer. Next time I'll get ocean front on floors 2 or 3. This is not really a criticism, just an observation.

If you return from the beach after 11:00 AM be sure to bring some kind of foot wear. The strip up to the motel cooked our feet...But everything else was great. Even my two nieces (teenagers ) loved every minute of it. I would have stayed longer if a room was available.

Just returned from a one night stay at the Atlantic View Motel in Dewey Beach, DE
Although the motel was very clean & quiet, the day staff could have been alittle more friendly. As we arrived, (a bit early), we were told explicitly that our room would not be ready until 3pm!, period!, then we were told they didn't have any beach chairs available yet, (good thing we took our own), it felt as if we were bothering them by asking them some questions. The room we stayed in looked as if it were upgraded recently, it was very clean and we didnt really hear much noise. It was an Ocean View room, very nice view from the deck up top...The continental breakfast was great, well presented and kept, but could have been served a little earlier.....went down at 715 and there wasen't even a pot of coffee around and lobby was locked up....that was a bit disappointing for us early risers....all in all, the location is the best, can't beat it, right on the Ocean which is very clean and well kept....great spot for a honeymoon couple looking for a quiet, relaxing time, just make sure your in shape to go up and down the stairs to and from your room as there is no elevator!

Room Tip: fourth floor sundeck room w/2 queen beds, great view!

First let me say that my wife and I were by FAR the youngest guests staying at this hotel. I usually travel for business and this was a personal trip, but the hotel was one of the best that I've ever stayed. We had an ocean front room on the third floor. You can tell hotel is older, but the rooms were phenomenal! The bathroom was small but extremely clean. At night we fell asleep to the sound of the waves. I was surprised at the breakfast, it wasn't much but it was exactly what you needed to make sure that you were satisfied and ready to start your day. The beach is great and not overly filled with people like you find a bit further north in Rehoboth, but if you want that sort of thing it's only a quick 1.5 mile drive or bike ride.

My only gripe is that we're not smokers but the people in the room below us were. They smoked on their balcony all of the time and it subsequently destroyed our desire to use our balcony.

Room Tip: Get the ocean front room...it's worth it.

We wanted a reasonably priced beach trip, and this was it. The location was great! It is an older hotel, so the rooms are not very big, and the bathrooms are small, but that's to be expected. Next time we'll probably get a king room with a couch so there's more area for our toddler to run around when we are stuck inside (rain).

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area - also very tolerant of our toddler! We ate most of our meals in Rehoboth, but since we went mid-June, parking wasn't a problem most times. The hotel staff gave great directions and suggestions. The chocolate chip cookies @ 7:30 were AWESOME! And the all day coffee was a plus for me too. The continental breakfast was nice - quite a few items to choose from, including a french toast casserole and quiche each day (along with your normal fruit, yogurt, cereal, bread, etc).

Some of the lights in the first floor hallway didn't seem to work, and that made it dark there, but other than that, everything was good. We had a problem with our TV, which they tried to fix, but we never fully received all the channels we were supposed to, even when they swapped out the TV and called the cable company. This was ok b/c we weren't in the room too often, and we had brought a portable DVD player to hook up for entertainment anyway.

The housekeeping staff was super nice and our room was very clean - and anyone with a toddler knows how they can find the littlest things in the room! I've been to 4 star hotels that weren't vaccuumed as well (as evidenced by what my toddler found on the floor). The refrigerators in the rooms are a great thing - bigger than one of those small dorm ones. There was a microwave there too, but we didn't use it. The balcony was nice to sit out on and hang our wet clothes to dry. The pool is small, as stated in other reviews, but we loved it - and the conversation with other friendly guests!

All in all, we had a great trip. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ocean views are great, 1st and 4th floors have shared deck for all the oceanside rooms

While we also believe we have an excellent location and offer a great value, when it is coupled with the great service from our front desk staff and the clean accommodations provided by our housekeeping staff we know we offer the best choice in a hotel at the beach. Thank you for the kind words and for helping others make the decision to stay with us at the Atlantic View. Your business and time in placing the review is sincerely appreciated.
