“Best western gold leaf would return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

close to the beach, freindly staff, and great breakfast. Wish they had a balacony nothing fancy but the beach was so close and clean. first time staying in dewey beach it is a very clean and freindly area. thank goodness the hotel had free parking that was a bonus because we got a parking ticket for running into a store for 2 minutes. Dog freindly area. movies on the beach and bonfire was really fun

We stayed over 4th of July. Hotel is very close to beach and has indoor parking.

We stayed on the 1st floor but I wouldn't recommend that if you're staying during a busy time as you will hear the road noise.

The room we had was fairly large but the bathroom was tiny. Room was clean, beds were comfortable.

The only issue we had was the fire alarm malfunctioning at 12:30am for about 30 minutes. While they did apologize, nothing was done to compensate us for our inconvenience.

Continental breakfast was your standard fare. Nothing special but not bad. Still went out for breakfast. Staff was friendly, hotel clean.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper request an upper floor. You will hear the noise from the traffice outs...

First thing, the rooms are tiny. Four people in one room was really too much. The room smelled a little musty and was very stuffy, so the air conditioning hadn't been turned on. The décor was outdated and very well worn. The room was clean, but the bathroom lacked towels for four- even though I made reservations for 4. Front desk service was very nice and friendly-at first, and as the evening went on they became insensitive and unhelpful. The trouble started around 10:30 p.m. with the fire alarm going off. evacuate, turn off alarm, go back- another alarm. By midnight the alarm had gone off 5 times- we couldn't go to another hotel, and the front desk staff said: "It's not my fault" REALLY? The fire alarm continued to go off throughout the night. We asked at 1:00 if we could get a room at another hotel- but it was fourth of July, so no vacancy anywhere close. We lost count of the times the alarm went off the rest of the night, but at 6:00 a.m. we asked if we could have a later check out and our money back. We were given a noon check out and told "No" on the money. With the alarm supposedly fixed we returned to our room to sleep only to have housekeeping begin pounding on our door to get out at 9:00a.m. even with a do not disturb sign. We explained 3 times that we would leave at noon, but continued to be harassed by housekeeping. we stuck to our time of noon, and insisted on a return of our money.

Room Tip: Don't come here

My family and I have stayed here numerous times and have always had a good experience. The rooms are as clean as I have seen for a beach hotel. Towels are always nice and beds are clean. The breakfasts my children are always excited for because there are so many choices.I have never has an issue with the parking garage... we always find a spot and I don't feel it's too cramped. It's free also, that makes me happy. So many places charge for parking. I am so surprised at the negative reviews here. We have always gone during the summer so maybe they provide better service during their busy time. We once had loud people on our floor, called to the front desk and it was taken care of. I have no complaints... as a matter of fact we are visiting again this summer.

The front desk clerk was so friendly and welcoming, Our room was very clean and comfortable. We were here for our anniversary in February and we are considering coming back in warmer weather. The only negative is there isn't a bathtub in standard rooms. No big deal for me, but may be for those traveling with children.

The woman at the front desk (I think her name was Sandy) was very pleasant and helpful at check-in. The room was a nice size and looks like it was recently renovated. Very clean. Quiet neighborhood during the off season, seemed pretty safe. Room rate was very good in January, but I would imagine during tourist season the rate goes way up. Only major disappointment was breakfast, the waffle maker was broken, there were no hot scrambled eggs (just cold hard boiled ones) and a pretty limited spread of other items. I guess I can forgive this since they are off season and it doesn't make sense to waste food during periods of low occupancy. Would definitely stay again.
