We were last minute shopping for a birthday weekend getaway at the beach. We came upon this motel's website and took a chance and called. We are always a bit leery of small private motels but were so pleased with this property we had to write a review. The attendant who answered the phone was super friendly and had a...

We have stayed at the Adams for many years! Nice to have just a short walk to the beach. The folks that run the place are very nice and we have always enjoyed our stay there. Rooms are adequate - nice to have a small refrigerator and hair dryer provided. No luxury but really great value for an oceanfront hotel....

Very nice staff. Friendly and helpful. Very clean. We loved everything about it! We will be back in September for sure! We weren't sure about it at first. Then we read reviews. We tried it and we loved it!

This place is ran by the nicest people. We enjoyed our stay and it was a very clean and nice room. When we checked out we were an hour away and they called us to tell us we left my daughters teddy bear behind. She's slept with it every night for 3 years. They not only mailed it back to...

This motel is so great. Clean and comfortable, great rates, wonderful fun loving staff. They really respond to all your needs. We had a "GREAT" time. Front row seat to the Atlantic. Fun watching the dogs play on the beach. Good restaurants are only a short walk away. The Jolly Trolley will take you to Rehoboth for a reasonable rate....

Ocean view, parking, clean pool. Finally had a room with a refrigerator larger then the 4x4 square one that sat on a luggage stand. Bathroom in our room repainted & new small tv. Seems they have done some updates since the last 15 years. More still needed. Bed spreads from the 60's. The pool is usually nice & clean till...

Location, location, location. Stayed 4 nights with two kids, ages 1 & 4. Standard room is just that, standard, no frills, but you can't beat the location. Recommend 2nd or 3rd floor room with view of the ocean and great breeze. Made for a nice spot to enjoy evening cocktails once the kiddos went to sleep. It's not a five...
