“Will definitely be coming back to Adam's Oceanfront!”
Reviewed 28 July 2011

I just got back from a three-day stay at Adam's Oceanfront. There were four of us girls that stayed in a motel room on the third floor. I've stayed in four other motels in Dewey and this was by far the best motel I've stayed in. The location was perfect! All the rooms overlooked the ocean and the beach was literally a one minute walk and you were there. The pool was very well maintained. We would typically get to the pool around 10ish in the morning and there were plenty of chairs and umbrellas available. The staff was always helpful and very nice to accommodate us. The room was kind of small especially with four girls in it but we managed well. I liked how we had a flat screen TV with plenty of channels and a fridge to keep food and drinks cool. The room was decorated in a cute way also. Overall, my friends and I really enjoyed this motel and I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Dewey for a weekend with friends to a week trip with a family.

Room Tip: I would suggest the third floor if you want the best view. If you're unable to walk stairs then...

We stayed here for a weekend at Dewey Beach. This hotel is so amazingly close to the beach, even looking out of your window you can see the ocean. It was really convenient to be so close to the beach that you could run back to your room to go to the bathroom or get a drink or whatever. The motel is also near other restaurants so you can definitely walk around the town and feel like you're right in the center of things. The rooms themselves were clean and had only a little wear and tear. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. I only took off one star because the room wasn't immaculate, but I think that's very hard to find in a beachfront motel where there's so much sand and moisture. Overall I would most definitely stay here again.

We enjoy staying there very much. Location is excellent, rooms are nice but a bit too small. There is a grill with a table in front where we used to make our meals.

Love the low-key feel of this small well-kept motel which is right at the beach... with low dunes between you and the ocean, just a minute's walk from door to waves. The room was very clean with comfortable beds. Easy walk to Grotto's pizza (it IS really good!) and much of what is going on in Dewey. Spent mornings and late afternoons on the sand. During the hot parts of the day, we spent hours hanging out, enjoying the ocean and breeze from the shaded balcony. Our stay and the folks at Adams Ocean Front helped make the celebration of Mom's 80th something really special. We will definitely be back!
NOTE: Dewey is a bit wild with the young partying crowd on the weekends, and a lovely uncrowded family getaway during week.... an old-fashioned small beach town in the best sense of the words.

Definitely not opulent but you probably not seeking opulence if you are going to Dewey. Furniture dated- not the coziest bed- but steps from the beach & easily can walk anywhere. Parking easy in/out which is a perk in this permit town. Lots of flies in room- not sure if housekeeping had door open because we didn't. Wireless Internet a bit spotty but did the job. Would def. Stay again. 2 dbl room would be tight fit for more than two of us.
