Truely located right on the bay, this old school 3 story motel is completely updated. Our unit was very clean, new carpet, furniture, bedding and bathroom fixtures. The balcony overlooked Rehoboth Bay. The office staff was courteous and professional. We were the first guests of the 2017 in room 200. Our efficiency had included a small kitchenette with basic appliances,...

Thank you for the great review! We are so happy to hear that you had a great weekend getaway and found your room to be more than satisfactory. We are located on the beautiful Rehoboth Bay and in the heart of Dewey Beach. The weekends can be a bit busier. However, during the week, you will often find it to...

This was a great place to stay in Dewey Beach. Nice view of the bay and clean rooms. We enjoyed the pool. This is a must trip for us every year to hit Starboard!! Best bloody Mary's EVER! Easy to walk to anywhere you need to go.

I have been coming here since I was a young girl. The employees here are very kind and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the beds are very comfortable. The hotel butts right up against the bay with a little patch of grass in the back and a long dock that people often crab and fish on. They also...

We stayed for 3 nights in August. Our room was clean, well kept, everything we needed for 2 adults and 2 children for a short stay at the beach. We enjoyed crabbing from the dock behind the resort. The front desk staff were great to everyone. We were able to ride our bikes or walk everywhere we wanted to go....

Kitchen and Utensils need Updated. Nice location and the Staff are Very Good though. This area is not for young kids, Bars are everywhere, it`s only 2 blocks to the beach, which is Nice. If you have children, go to Rehobeth.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. You are correct that there are bars in Dewey, but many people consider Dewey a family town. There are several activities during the summer for families including family movie night on the beach and bonfires on the beach. Our property is a bit secluded and removed from the bar scene,...

Have been coming here for several years now. The initial reason was the kitchenettes, and now I return because the price is right during off-season, and the location and the staff are great. Hope to be back next year.

Bay Resort provides a clean comfortable room with all the amenities--hair dryer, iron, etc. The desk staff are like family--They greet the guests warmly, extend themselves to make you welcome and to make sure that you have everything you need to enjoy your vacation. The view of the bay is beautiful.
