“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Wonderful location right steps right out onto the beach. Room is comfortable and no complaints. Bed frame could have been attached to the bed a bit better, was kind of wobbably and would hit the wall every time we sat on the bed. So you can imagine how noisy out neighbors could get. Overall perfect place to stay when at the beach. Clean, good price, and perfect location.

Stayed three days, two nights in Dewey Beach and couldn't ask for a better location for a motel. It's an older motel so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles like the newer hotels and resorts. But if you just looking for a place on the beach to lay your head at night with easy beach access, this is the place. Also, if you are wanting a place to watch the sunrises, this is the place to stay at. Very quiet location, several blocks away from the bars that can get pretty loud at night. Alot of the restaurants in Dewey Beach are within a short walk from the hotel, and there is a trolley stop just down the street which provides roundtrip service to Rehoboth Beach ($5 dollars per person). Better to take the trolley then trying to find a parking spot down by the boardwalk.

Room Tip: Stairways to the 2nd and 3rd floors are narrow. Recommend you pack smaller bags if you can.

The staff is very nice. Location is great. Pool is clean. Rooms are old, bathrooms are small but adequate. Free coffee in the am is always appreciated. My husband loves this place. Other guests are always chatty and freindly. Would stay again. No elevators though.

Room Tip: No elevators so get a room on ground floor if you cannot lug your belongings up the stairs. There ar...

We visited in June 2012. We stayed on the 3rd floor. Make sure you pack a light suitcase because it's rough carrying large items up and down the stairs. The room was clean and had a nice view of the ocean. You are literally steps away from the beach. You can take a trolley to the boardwalk and there are plenty of nearby places to eat. The staff was friendly and helpful. They had suggestions for local activities and restaurants. The WiFi was spotty at first, but when I brought it to their attention, it was fixed right away. They even called me in my room to make sure it was working for me. I asked for an umbrella for a poolside table and before I got back from the front desk, a staff member was setting it up for us. There's not alot of room to hang clothing - just one bar outside the bathroom, no hooks for towels etc....but this is a motel so you can't really complain about it. Small fridge and microwave in room allowed us to eat breakfast or lunch in room when we wanted to do so. Unfortunately, when we were there the ocean was very rough and the beach had a large gulley full of broken shells you had to cross before getting into the ocean. We had a much better time at the Midway Waterpark nearby. Overall, if you want to vacation right on the beach in DE, this is a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Room on end has private balcony. Others share common hallway for balcony.

I always have a good experience at Adams. The rooms are clean, the staff friendly and helpful. My kids just love the pool and I must say, it is a very clean pool. Looking down on the pool from your window is just so nice with the sun shining on the water, it looks so inviting!! I enjoy sitting there with a good book while the kids play. We have been coming here for a while now and I must say our experiences have always been a pleasure!!

We are planning our next visit to Adams before the summer is over!!

Room Tip: The higher two floors you have the best view of the ocean but all floors are nice.

My family and I have been staying at Adams for years. We have already been there twice this year and our reservations are already made for again in August. The staff is awesome, the whole place is great! I can not imagine anyone not wanting to stay at Adams or even having a complaint about the staff.

Great place to relax with the family, or just a romantic getaway for you and spouse. Everyone needs to experience Dewey Beach and stay at Adams Ocean Front!!

Room Tip: Higher floors you can see the ocean better....but the over all experience is awesome.

This hotel needs the carpets clean. The outside decks on the balcony units need to be pressure washed. Will never stay here again. Staff did not want to hear it at all. Just said they would tell the owner. But he probably would not do nothing about it.
