I was in Rehobeth a few years ago with my son for a baseball tournament and we passed through Dewey Beach and loved it. Found this hotel online and had kept it in mind ever since. My husband and I came for the 4th of July with our small dog. We stayed in one of the 1st Floor dog friendly rooms. Loved the proximity to the beach and town. The room was basic but clean. Pergo floors were a great touch (read older reviews about damp carpeting). Pillows could have been better and I wish there was a coffeemaker in the room. Free coffee and breakfast starts at 8. We went up the block to Sharkey's which opened at 6 before our early morning walk on the beach. The staff was so incredibly nice and helpful. My only major complaint is that the 1st floor rooms have absolutely no view whatsoever. You are literally looking right at the parking lot. I wish that people with dogs were allowed to stay on the Upper floors. We have a small dog so stairs are not an issue. We have stayed at other dog friendly Oceanfront motels elsewhere that allowed it. We loved everything else about our stay and already reserved a Villa for next year and hope our boys will join us. Couldn't get one of the Oceanfront ones but maybe we will in the offseason someday! If you are booking a dog friendly room please keep in mind that you need to call or email the motel. I booked online initially but it is through Booking.com and those are only for non-dog rooms. I emailed the motel and they switched my reservation. Villas are all dog friendly.

Last year we stay in the motel. Nice third floor room. It was clean and comfortable.Great view and really liked the rocking chairs. So this year we booked a villa. At first looked very nice but the sofa and two chairs were very stained that i couldn't seat on them because i didn't know if they were pet stain or what. So i did not feel comfortable in the bedroom because i didn't know what or who was in that bed so a covered the bed in a great sheet i brought from home with incase i used it on the beach, the living room floor also was dirty. Very disappointed which took away from the good view and pastry with coffee for breakfast.

Just returned from September vacation at Adams Oceanfront. As always, it was perfect. The entire staff - office, housekeeping, maintenance, as well as the owner, are professional, friendly and do everything possible to provide everything required for a perfect vacation. They all do a fantastic job of making you feel at home. The Hotel had a perfect view of the ocean from our second floor room. All of the rooms are oceanfront with rocking chairs to enjoy that perfect view. They provide a great continental breakfast each morning. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Thanks to all for another great year. I can't imagine ever staying anywhere but here in Dewey Beach.

I have recently returned from Dewey beach Delaware first week Oct. 2019. We stayed at Adams ocean front villas. We stayed in villa 18 one of only 2 that are ocean front. There are other villas behind. There is a parking place under the villas. Steps to first floor. When inside 2 floors. Floor kitchen, living room, 1/2 bath, balcony, fold out sofa, table, TV The villas' kitchen has, oven, sink, fridge, microwave, dishwasher. The 1/2 bath has a washer and dryer and Adams supplies soap. The upstairs has a full bath and sky light in bath room. 2 bed rooms, master bedroom in front with balcony and full size bed, TV closet drawers for clothing. The other room in back has 2 single beds, balcony but no TV. Down stairs in the living room the fold out sofa bed is not the best for sleeping although I managed. Dogs are welcome for extra charge. They have some breakfast items in the front office not always the same every day. They have donuts, muffins, pastry, fruit, In AM: around 7:30 coffee, hot water and tea bags, creamer, sugar, sometimes O.J. no extra charge. The villas are clean, staff friendly, even other vacationers all friendly. Outside near villas and rooms are showers to rinse off great for dogs. I took dog shampoo out and did quick washes on dog after beach time worked great. We have already made our reservations for next year in one of the other villas in back, if you want a villa you have to stay at least 3 nights. See attached photos.
