Clean pleasant room, helpful staff, comfortable beds, nice to have the efficiency kitchen! We have stayed here many times in spring and fall and always have a wonderful experience. The views of the bay are very special in all kinds of weather.

Loved our stay at the Bay Resort Motel. Friendly, helpful staff, easy check-in/check-out, very reasonable rates with Clean, quiet rooms & comfortable beds. Easy to walk to many places for food, drinks & fun. A short walk to the beach & enjoyed the pier & gazebo at the motel. Beautiful views from our balcony! Can't wait to visit again!

Go every year -- all is excellent. Great location, being by the bay is wonderful. Great sunsets. Great location. But it is the employees that make the difference. They are friendly, and make you feel at home.

Walking distance to Rusty Rudder for some free (and not so free ) jazz shows. Short drive (5minute) to Rehoboth and cute main ddrag by the ocean. Online reservations were...

As always - EXCEPTIONAL!! The staff, the service, the friendliness of the staff and the convenience to the beaches. I've visited several times and I've never been disappointed. I love the fact that I can cook in or dine out. This is a GREAT feature of the resort.

We revisited this little gem on our most recent stay in Dewey to plan my daughter's wedding.
