This was our first stay in Dewey and overall it was good. the Atlantic View was a very friendly and helpful place the rooms were very clean and comfortable the staff made you feel welcome,breakfast was awesome and in the afternoon they put out wine ,cheese and crackers and in the evening fresh baked chocolate chip cookies .well worth the money with all the snacks.it is very relaxing and quite there the beach is just out the door and the pool was very nice and clean.there were only a few cons -no elevator and no in room coffee makers and office doesnt make it in the morning before 7:30

As an independent hotel the decision to stay with us for the first time is often due to a recommendation by a friend or trip advisor. Once you walk into our lobby we work hard to show that we offer great value at a fantastic hotel that delivers five star service. Our goal is to make the first stay with us the first of many more to come as we are interested in making long term guest relationships. Thank you for staying with us and thank you for placing the review it is greatly appreciated.

The hotel is charming, a lot going for it including excellent morning breakfast buffet, small but very nice pool, great beach location but they need a front desk overhaul. Our first night check in assistant at the desk was charming, but the day side and the subsequent night side people acted as if they couldn't be bothered to answer simple questions, and they made a mistake in billing. Didn't see a single smile after that first night. The parking situation is less than desirable and there isn't an elevator. Hauling suitcases up flights of stairs isn't easy if your knee joints are what they used to be. The owners make the effort to provide a quaint and tastefully done little hotel but the desk people need to be working elsewhere, preferably not in hotel servie.

We moved away from the area and decided to vacation in Delaware this year. We had stayed at "Atlantic View" many years ago and decided to return to it. Everything was great: room, personnel, food, and location. We loved the breakfast, the wine and cheese, and the cookies.

Room Tip: Higher floors have ocean view. Bottom flour has lovely patio, but the dune hides the ocean.

We are a family owned and operated hotel which I believe is what sets us apart from the normal hotel stay. We take a great deal of pride in the product we deliver to our guest as we want the first stay with us to be the first of many to come. We recognize we can not be a successful by only having you stay with us once and go away unhappy looking for another option the next time you visit the beach. All our staff lives by our motto Friendliness and cleanliness its the back bone to any successful hotel. Thank you for you business, your kind words, and for taking the time to review our hotel it is sincerely appreciated.

My husband and I decided to take an impromptu beach vacation this past weekend with our kids. It started on Thursday night with me browsing hotel sites to find a last minute place to stay. It was only going to be a quick one night stay and calling around to the hotels in the area everyone was nice but when I got Eric from Atlantic view on the phone he was above the level of friendly that I had been getting during my previous phone calls. He helped me book a room and allowed us to park in the lot early to get the kids to the beach!! When we arrived again the staff was so friendly and welcoming, took my cell phone number and said they would call once our room was ready. We were on the beach for about an hour until I received the call and before getting to the desk we had decided to stay two nights instead. The girl that checked me in was accommodating to my request and got a room ready for both nights that we wanted to stay. Friday night was beautiful and they even had cookies out for the kids at 8:00 that evening. My kids were beyond excited for cookies and milk before bed. On Saturday after a long morning on the beach we made our way to the car to drive around and see the sights and to our surprise our rental car wouldn't start so one of the staff, Kelly, proceeded to use her own car to jump our car battery. It started and we were on our way. She was a life saver and genuinely happy to help us! When we finished eating dinner our rental car wouldn't start again we were panicked and called the front desk at Atlantic View and Shirley was again so helpful and sent the maintenance guy to come jump our battery. I can't say enough how friendly and amazing this staff is! I have never stayed at a hotel with a more friendly or helpful group of people in my life! I will be back and I will make sure to tell everyone I know about the awesome experience I had here!! Thank you everyone!

We appreciate you taking the time to write a pleasant review and so glad you made it home safely. Here at the Atlantic View we think of all of our guest as part of our family. It was very nice meeting you and your family and glad your children had fun at the beach and enjoyed the cookies at 8. Looking forward to your next stay with us.

We did like this hotel. It is conveniently located right on the beach. They serve coffee and breakfast in the morning which is great! I loved the variety. The staff were really nice. The in room refrigerator and microwave made it possible to bring home left overs and stock up on food and water. The refrigerator is a little bigger than a dorm room variety and allows for quite a bit of storage which is useful when visiting the beach. I would recommend it to a friend traveling to the area but there are just a couple of things to be aware of.
1. The first and fourth floor rooms have a SHARED balcony/patio. a friend booked this trip as a gift and was told that we would be on the third floor with a private balcony so they were really disappointed when we told them we were on the 4th floor. We were willing to accept that we had to share the balcony with the rest of the floor until we realized that the shared balcony also has a curfew!! Yep, you need to be off of the balcony at 11pm if you are on the 4th floor. We arrived at 10:30 after a LONG drive and were looking forward to some ocean air...
2. only one parking pass per room so any additional vehicles need to PAY for a parking pass and park on the street.
3. you must vacate the parking lot at check out time. that is right, you need to be out of your room and off of the property at check out. This stinks because if you plan to go to the beach for a bit after checking out, you need to buy a parking pass.
4. no elevator. so if you are on the 4th floor you are walking up and down every time you leave the hotel or go for breakfast/coffee.(i actually loved this but is something that people should be aware of when they go to a hotel.)
5. there was hair in one of our beds. Luckily we had two queen beds so we just slept in the other one, but it kind of made us feel uncomfortable/unclean.
We would recommend this hotel because overall it was okay. But seriously try to get a guarantee in writing for a 2nd or 3rd floor room if you want a private balcony.

Room Tip: 2nd or 3rd floor only

We haven't been to this hotel in many years, but it's improvements since then are great! The room updates on the 2nd floor just make the oceanfront rooms even better than I remember. My husband and I will be back again much sooner next time! Thanks to Shirley and Kelly for their excellent customer service- they made our stay seem like a visit with friends. I highly recommend Atlantic View during the quiet season - thanks!!

We spent a few days before Memorial Day weekend at the Atlantic View hotel. We had a room with the oceanfront view and it was spectacular. I would strongly recommend this hotel with rooms that have the oceanfront view. The service was great and the breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean are the best choice.
