You really can't find a better place than this in Dewey Beach. You can walk to just about anywhere in Dewey, but you're away from the buzz of the main street.

Nice view of the Bay and the sunset. The room was clean and a bonus was the fact that the room had a mini fridge, sink and microwave. We loved the close proximity to Beach and restaurants. The staff was very friendly.
