Thank you for the detailed review. We are pleased that you enjoyed almost everything about your stay. We are sorry that we did not have an elevator for you. Next time you stay with us, please request a room on the first floor and this should help alleviate your issue with the stairs.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 19 September 2016

I and my family and a friend or two have come to the Bay Resort since around 2001, staying several times. We love Dewey and Rehoboth beaches and boardwalks, but this place has the best of both worlds, being on the bay and just a quick walk to an uncrowded and relaxing ocean beach. With the pier, you can fish...

Thank you for the great review! We are thrilled that you keep coming back to the Bay Resort. We agree there is so much to do in and around this area and so much to choose from. However, if it's relaxation you seek, you can find that right here on our property. Between, the pier, your bay view patio, the...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much! The staff was very helpful and the service was very good. It is very close to restaurants, bars and other stores with a short walk to the beach. We would recommend The Bay Resort without reservation!

Thank you for the great review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We are within walking distance to many great restaurants and shops, as well as the ocean making it easy to never drive anywhere once you park on property. Thank you for such high praise and recommendation. We hope to see you again soon!

The Bay Resort is the best hotel. The staff is wonderful. From our room we can enjoy the beautiful sunset every evening from the patio. We can have coffee in the morning on our patio watching the ducks swin in the bay.

Awe! Thank you for the positive review and kind words. We love being your happy place. It is lovely watching the sun set over the bay and seeing all of the wildlife during the day. We hope you'll be able to return again soon!

The Bay Resort was clean and friendly. The beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was very family friendly and quiet. We were in town for vacation and had a fun and relaxing time. The price point was good. I would definitely recommend calling them directly as they have much better rates than most online services indicate (travelocity, hipmunk, etc.).

Very relaxed environment. Unique experience on the Bay and 2 blocks from Dewey Beach. Always a good value and near Restaurants and Ocean. This is our choice to stay at whenever we got to the beach. Enjoy the stay!

What a lovely hotel...location, service, and value! Bay Resort goes above and beyond to accommodate their guests. We have stayed several times, and already have our next trip in the works! Spectacular sunsets and walking distance to everything! Recommended by a good friend, and we are truly appreciative.

We have been staying here for years. The sunsets are beautiful here if you are lucky enough to be back in your room in time to see them. This is a little gem of a place. It's right on the bay. They have kayak rentals on site now & bike rentals too. Only 2 blocks to the beach & walking...

Thank you for the five-star review and for your continued loyalty! We are so appreciative that you keep coming back year after year. The sunset over the Rehoboth Bay is a sight to behold.

Out three generation trip could not have been more perfect! Plenty of rest for grandma and granddaughter and lots of near/by shopping for daughter. Local food was outstanding, anything from Woodys or Dewey Brew! Highly recommend to all!!

What a fun idea! We couldn't be happier that you spent your three-generation family trip with us. We are conveniently located near great shopping opportunities and fantastic local food. You can find everything you need just a stone's throw away! We hope you have many more three generation trips to The Bay Resort in your future!

The Bay Resort is a great place to stay on the bay. We enjoy coming during off seasons because it is a very quiet tranquil place to get away. The staff provides exceptional customer service, which you don't find very often anymore.
