It is right in the center of town, great location, and right next to the beach. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this motel to anyone... More

We stayed at the Atlantic Oceanside Motel for four nights. They are definitely dog friendly - lots of folks with dogs in tow - and VERY close to the beach. (Note that in Dewey Beach, dogs are allowed on the beach in the summer before 9:30 AM and after 5:30 PM, but not during the prime beach-going hours.) The room... More

To start off on the positive, this motel is very close to the beach. It is a very short walk away. There are also a number of restaurants and shops across and down the street. The staff seemed polite courteous. The downside of this motel is this: 1. The rooms are very dated; 2. We had damaged furniture and cabinets;... More

We have been taking this vacation for a few years now and coming "home" to this hotel for a few years now. We are always greeted with warm welcomes.

Planned a weekend stay at this place and was not told of the volleyball team that had rented out the whole hotel except one room. They took over the pool for 6 hours on Saturday afternoon and the sun deck for a pizza party. And let's not forget the dogs barking at 7 am. Unless you are a regular at... More
