All our family members and dogs had a wonderful trip despite a little rain. The new owners/staff are great and the rooms are updated and clean. Count on good coffee and breakfast snacks. Location is good. Close to beach and restaurants and bars.

Cute hotel. Nicely decorated. Close to the beach. Friendly staff. What could possibly be wrong? The facility itself. Don't accept Room 215. The door was kicked in from the inside and so bent that it gaped away from the frame. Staff kindly gave us another room on request, but they were aware that the room had been that way a long time. The second room's door had a torn seal at the bottom and rattled in the wind. Once we were in for the night, I pushed the chair against it to keep it quiet. We had to go back to the front desk because there were no washcloths, hand towels, or bathmat in the bathroom.

this was a last minute lodging because of my error. property is old and not well kept--needs a lot of repair/maintenance--hand rails dirty, windows/doors not insulated and rates the same as other properties with more amenities and newer, cleaner facilities. No elevators and staff would not switch our room (we are seniors with some health issues) and put us on the third floor. When checking out the person offered a discount for my next stay...but I won't be going back to this property and would not recommend it. Staff was friendly.

I rarely go to the beach after labor day, but decided to escape with the family down to Dewey in October - This hotel was perfect for this get away as they allowed dogs and were an easy walk to EVERYTHING: Beaches, Bars, Restaurants, and Cute Shops!

1.) Check out time – We requested a later checkout time with your overnight front desk attendant. Clearly she had not relayed the message to the morning staff when they came on shift. I did not appreciate your hotel manager pounding on our hotel room door urging us to hurry it up and then later calling the phone to reiterate the check out time of 11:00 am. The fact that you had overbooked and had guests waiting to check in early was not our problem! Being a family of four on vacation this was not a pleasant way to end our stay. 2.) Quiet Policy – This was not upheld during our stay as we experienced several guests stumbling back to their rooms drunk well past the hours from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. With 2 children under the age of 18 sleeping, they were woken up to guests pounding on doors at all hours of the night. 3.) Housekeeping services – We requested service to our room but that happened once during our 5 night stay. Again, we relayed this request to your overnight staff and obviously the message was not received as my children repeatedly had to go down to the front desk lobby area asking for towels, toilet paper and trash bags. As a guest, I did not expect to clean our hotel room while on vacation. Finally, my greatest concern is the overnight front desk person locking up the lobby to sneak off hotel property (where they cannot be seen on cameras) to smoke drugs and have sex with her male companion while on the company’s time. I would like to think that there is a drug policy in place for your employees. While I appreciate the credit refund of $199.00 for the first night, the lack of checking in with us as repeat guests from last year (during Covid), and being that my spouse and I are in the service industries, I am genuinely not impressed with your staff and we will not be returning to you hotel.

Good- On beach block. You do not have to cross busy Rt1. Sundry store on site to purchase food/drinks. Free parking in small lot or park on street. Walk to bars/restaurants. Rooms are fairly clean. Bad- Very small space. Bathroom small. Rooms small. Things run down. They need to do upgrades- even things like the shower head was bald - so like the basic one in the 70s, torn shower rod, missing bath pole to hang washcloths, rusted toilet paper holder, etc. Bed has seen better days. Ugly- My room was on first floor and shades wouldn't pull shut so people walking by could see in. Bring a clip (hair clip even) to clip shades shut. This beach, Dewey, is loud in general - more bar focused and 20 somethings so its just generally louder. The clientele in the hotel seemed not to care about their neighbors. I found folks to be loud in their room and walking down sidewalk right outside. The doors and the latches are 70s so don't feel secure when you leave the room. There is a large space around door so either hot or cold air gets in depending time of year. I put the a/c on but it didn't seem to work all that great. I tried to call the front desk for something but phone had no dial tone. Check in was tough. Couple that works the front desk seem friendly but not on the ball. Myself and another person were waiting to check in and she didn't seem to notice we were there so took a while. For me, they signed me up under someone else's name so charged me more so had to re-sign in (nothing is digital) and go through process again. Took a long time and was making me wonder how they'd fare in an emergency! Front desk lady kept pulling her mask off to talk so what is the point really??? Yikes.

First time to Dewey Beach and needed a dog friendly hotel. It definitely isn't a resort, however, the check in clerk was very personable and ensured COVID guidelines were being followed by sanitizing everything. Not many people staying there. Our room was right above the gym so we didn't have anyone staying on either side of us. Room had the basic necessities. The only issues were the $10 pet fee per night and the A/C compressor definitely needing maintenance. No carpet or rug in the room so if the dog had an accident, we could have easily cleaned it up. We were there for 2 nights and would have asked for a new room if we stayed longer due to the loud A/C. Not a bad location since it's close to the beach and restaurants. Walking distance to the beach and restaurants (if they're opened). Not a bad price for off season, but wouldn't pay much more during peak season.

This is easily one of the WORST hotels I have ever stayed in (and I've been to 45 countries). The only pros of this hotel are that it's right next to the beach as well as many bars and restaurants. Other than that, the walls are paper thin, the bars and clubs party every night until the early morning, (and no amount of sleeping aid or hearing aids will block out the party sounds), dogs are barking at all hours, and the hotel is overpriced. The noise was so bad we had to leave a day early. Do not stay at this hotel.

We loved this place!! Super pet friendly, in a cute town and recently renovated. Location on beach block was outstanding. The Beach allows dogs before 9:30 and after 5:30 I will highly talk up this place to pet parents like us. Also, lots of dining options nearby.

This is the most dog friendly establishment in Dewey Beach. Our certified therapy dog Sirius spent his week hanging out at the pool with his dad. It was much better than dragging him to the beach for a long day. This year was an extremely painful vacation. We even put it off for 6 wks & then went with the chance they could accommodate us You see, our beloved Dewey beach golden got called to heaven just 6 wks before our annual June vacation. To continue his legacy, I had Vista Print make his postcard for the doggie licensing department. The new pups enjoying Dewey would not find any postcards to write home about their spectacular vaca. Atlantic Oceanside understood our heart ache all to well. They only had one nite available. We took it. Just to get his cards to town hall for the rest of the season. Well, upon check out in the morning, they had a cancellation. It was a room upgrade but offered it to us at a better price. Nothing like the bond with your summertime fun place. They really helped ease our pain.
