“I wouldnt consider staying at another hotel in Dewey”
Reviewed May 22, 2010

Been coming to the Atlantic View for several years and each time they outdo themselves. Traveled for 6 days for Nascar race, the staff decorated the lobby and accomodated all the race fans with early coffee etc. Staff is so nice, from the check-in folks, to the cleaning and maintenance folks, how can this be? It is, and the place is the cleanest and the location couldn't be better. There is no choice when you come to Dewey, plus great free breakfast.

We stumbled across this property about a year ago and it is now the only place we stay in the Dewey/Rehoboth area. The property is always clean and the staff very friendly. The rooms are spotless and the location is A+. They offer a continental breakfast which is easy to take the beach and enjoy the start of the day. We have experienced nothing but friendly service and an enjoyable stay. In my opionion it is the best value in the area!

Right on the beach - can it get any better? No more walking even a block to get to the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean. We drove to Rehoboth for an evening on the boardwalk, but would rather not stay there. Book early if you want ocean side rooms!

We have just ended our 4-night stay at the Atlantic View Hotel. It was a great experience! Overall, it's a basic beach hotel. The decor has a bit of an 80s flair (seashell lamps and lavender/teal color scheme) but is clean. There are no elevators, only stairs at either end of the short hallway. We wouldn't say it is tacky, but it's got a dated beach charm to it. (Oh, and you have to pay 25 cents to fill your ice bucket.)

Because we booked late, we had to switch rooms twice in order to stay for 4 consecutive nights, but as a result we experienced double queen rooms on the ocean and overlooking the parking lot, and a king room on the ocean. All the rooms were clean and comfortable. The AC was powerful, which is important! The hotel also has free wireless.

The deck on the first floor ocean view is shared with all the others on that floor. The balconies on the second floor (both sides) are private. The ocean view rooms overlook a small patch of dunes (pretty!) and then look out directly to the ocean. However, first floor ocean front rooms do not have an unobstructed view of the ocean because of these dunes.

There are lifeguards on the beach, as well as rentable chairs and umbrellas. (Hotel has free metal chairs, the rentable ones are not connected to the hotel and are wooden.) The hotel is located about 1 1/2 blocks from the Jolly Trolly stop that takes you into Rehoboth for $2 a person (very convenient).

The continental breakfast includes pastries, muffins, danish, fresh fruit (often 3 kinds such as sliced strawberries, pineapple, blueberries), two types of cereal, juice, yogurt, and coffee. The pool is pretty small, but it is clean and surrounded by really comfy lounge chairs.

We loved our stay and plan on returning.

I traveled with my mother to Dewey for a week. We had a room on the ocean side and it was great! Our room was extremely clean and the housekeepers were exceptionally friendly. The people at the front desk were also very kind and helpful. This hotel has sand chairs for their guests to use for free. I will definitely stay at this hotel again!

Making this our 3rd year in Dewey, we decided to move closer to the beach. We picked the Atlantic View Motel, and now we can't understand why would we ever stay anywhere else.

The rooms were very neat with brand new bathrooms, individual balconies, Bath & Bodyworks toiletries, ample linens, towels and pillows. Each room had a generously sized refrigerator, and microwave. I had a great night's sleep every night of our stay.

You are told at check in that this is NOT a party motel, and noise will not be tolerated from 11:30pm until 8am. We have run into lots of noise at other motels in Dewey that were closer to Rte 1. This was a very nice perk.

The location to the beach was great. They supply sand chairs at no cost - also nice. The breakfast had enough to offer, and the pool looked nice although we were never in it. There was an outside changing house with a bathroom for early arrivals to use before you could check in.

We cannot wait to rebook for next year. We had an absolutely wonderful stay!

  • Liked — proximity to beach, location, location, location
  • Disliked — Hotel lacks any kind of internet connection.
