Oceanfront view was amazing. You can’t find a more convenient spot to get to the beach.

Amazing ocean side view

Clean, basic, and casual. It's for going and spending time at the beach. The view on the ocean side is worth it, especially in the off season.

No elevator or I couldn't find it

Pros: Next to beach
Cons: Elevator?
Location: Beach, bars, honky tonk
Had some room issues. Maintenance man was very accommodating. Front desk either didn't show up the next morning, or went somewhere. Maintenance guy happened to show up when I was trying to ck out and took key. These beach places are typical of a laid back, often careless service by young people employed. As a grandfather, I don't get upset, but wish our youf were more shaped up, because there is a lot of competition out there, and you are likely to be replaced by a robot or iPad in the future....

Great staff and great hotel (and free popcorn!)

Pros: Pretty much all the things
Cons: Not sure.
Location: Tons of bars and restaurants nearby. Try the Starboard for a killer Bloody Mary and great Sunday brunch! Also, it's oceanfront, so beach things.
I was a little skeptical about going to one of the beach hotels in Dewey (which basically transforms into Delaware's own version of Jersey Shore in the summer), but I figured I might as well try it once (it being the much calmer off-season). My boyfriend and I drove up on Saturday morning and arrived about 2 hours before check-in. I went into the front office and talked with the lady working the desk, who was more than happy to give us our parking pass and any information we might need about where to kill time/grab lunch until our room was ready. Also, there was a popcorn machine in the lobby, from which I was encouraged to take as much as I wanted. I told the lady that I would probably be taking the whole machine's contents. She suggested grabbing the ice bucket in my room and filling it up. The room, even being the cheapest, smallest option, had a beautiful view of the ocean. The bed was small, but pretty comfy, as was the couch (also a pullout bed). The decor was outdated, but I personally found it kind of charming. Quaint and beachy. Also, it reminded me a bit of my childhood trips to the beach. Overall, it was a great weekend and I highly recommend this hotel!

Nice hotel; super close to the beach.

Pros: Proximity to the beach/ocean, outdoor pool, laundry room, friendly, convenient to other locations.
Cons: The bathroom was TINY! The place was dated and some of the (tub) plumbing looked as if it could fall off at anytime; it needs some sprucing up.
Location: Very close to everything in Rehoboth (waterparks, restaurants, movies) and Lewes (Kalmar Nyckel). Then since its right on the beach, there's that!
The hotel was right on the beach; although we didn't have an ocean-front room, we did have a view of the ocean. They had a small kitchenette which is great when travelling with kids, and an outdoor pool for those times we didn't want to get full of sand (they have outdoor hoses also, to clean off after the beach which was nice). The concierge staff was quite friendly and nice. We'd go back again...this time we'd ask for ocean-front though!

Perfect location

The hotel was ok. I did have a few issues. Parking was extremely limited. The room was large and the amenities expected. However it was not very clean. The ceiling fan and lamps were covered in dust. Also we could hear people walking on the floor above and clearly hear people conversing through the walls. When the cleaning staff came to freshen the room they did nothing but replace the bath towels. They did not empty the full bathroom trash or pick up the wet beach towels.

Pros: It was on the beach and well maintained. There was a great veiw of the ocean. The staff was helpful and friendly.
Cons: Maybe parking, although we did not have a problem… parking was somewhat limited.
Location: The hotel was ON THE BEACH! There were a number of good restaurants with-in walking distance.
Everything about the Surf Club and Dewey Beach is fantastic! We have been going to Rehoboth Beach/ Dewey Beach for about 10 years. We have stayed at a few different locations and the Surf Club has it ALL! Number 1 is the location- we could walk to the beach (right outside our hotel door) and it was beautiful! Sandy and sunny, with dolphins and fishermen and local residents walking their well behaved pet dogs (in the early morning and after the beach closed at night.) The room was fantastic- clean and well set up for a week-long stay- coffee maker, toaster, 2 burner stovetop, refrigerator, sink and microwave! Plus dishes, silverware, wine glasses and coffee cups! There is a sofa that could be made into a queen sized bed and a full bed with a comfortable mattress and four pillows. The bathroom included a tub and shower (it was spotless.) There was plenty of hot water! We could walk to some very good restaurants and ride our bikes (2.5 miles) to Rehoboth Beach and the Boardwalk (and a Starbucks!) A short car drive (maybe 15 minutes) brought us to the excellent shopping available in the area. The area was safe, quiet and well protected. All in all, it was the perfect place to stay and we plan to return next summer!

Dolphins and Diamonds

Pros: The hotel had everything we needed and more (coffee maker, toaster, kitchenware, stove, access to laundry, dvd player & cable, wifi, heated lamp,etc)
Cons: The pool, whirlppool, & sauna closed too early at 8:30 pm, & we wished it was open a bit later so we could soak after the day to relax muscles.
Location: We loved Dewey Beach because we enjoyed watching dogs allowed on the beach. It is far enough away from business, yet not too remote.Dolphin watching!
The staff was so courteous, friendly, and accommodating! If we arrived a tad early, they were able to get us into our room an hour early with notice, which was really helpful. It was our first trip to Dewey Beach and I had alotted a little more time than needed for travel. I was worried about parking since in Dewey and Rehobeth you need permits to park anywhere unless you are at a hotel with free parking. This hotel did offer that. There was plenty of room to unload vehicles before pulling into our final parking spot, just across the street (close). Later when it came time to leave, we were able to check out at 11, but keep our hotel parking pass for a few more hours so we could maximize time at the beach on our last day there. They allowed us to change in the pool changing room before going home so we were comfortable. I shook hands with the hotel owner thanking him, and he offered his first name, and asked about/cared about how our stay went and was receptive to feedback, and encouraged us to revisit. I told him that I had such a comfortable night's sleep. The pull down bed was unbelievably comfortable. He said that they are brand new mattresses put in just this year! I loved the fact that we could put up the bed for more room or pull down for a great night sleep. The view was beautiful & there was a cushioned bench seat where I sat to watch the ocean before kids awoke. Its enclosed by glass, so you can't open it to hear the waves & smell the salt, but the view was pretty

Thank you for your input, I was the one whose hand you shook and I remember speaking with you. Our whole team work very hard to earn reviews like this. There is an operating window in each room, most people don't look at it because it is the small sliding window next to the large floor to ceiling fixed window. We look forward to see taking care of you again.
