This is just the right place for our family of five! There is plenty to do, great restaurants near, the bay on one side and the ocean on the other! It's not hard to find a quiet place if you're looking for that also...We can't wait to come back again!!

Thank you for the five-star review. We love that you love the Bay Resort. We are just right for most families as we are centrally located, sitting right on the Rehoboth Bay but in walking distance to the Ocean and great restaurants and shops. We look forward to having you back again!

Cant beat the 5 night special! Bay view room has amazing views. Nice to have a pool on site. Easy walk to beach and dining options. Second time here would definitely return. Crabbing off pier is the best and sunsets are fantastic

Thank you for the response! We do offer some great promotions, including the 4 night and 5 night weekday specials, as well as the fall weekend getaway packages. These can be found on our website. Our views of the bay are amazing and crabbing off the pier is great entertainment. We look forward to having you stay with us again...

We have been staying here overnight on our way 2 NC for a few years. We have always had a wonderful room & great experience here. However, the room they gave us this time was noted as POOLSIDE as it was all they had left. The room was anything but poolside. We had to move our chairs in front of...

Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry to hear about your disappointment in your room. During this time of year, we do get booked up and reach full capacity rather quickly. The Bayside Rooms are more desirable and tend to get booked first. I know you believe that you should have been charged less, but your room was the...

We very much enjoyed our stay, as we always have. My son and his friend loved kayaking and crabbing right from the pier. It's a perfect location for exploring the bay and still be only a short walk to the beach. We will be back again!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your continued patronage and are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. We are the only hotel located on the Bay in Dewey Beach. Yet, we are still just a short walk to the Ocean and many great restaurants. We look forward to having you back again soon.

We loved this place. We had a room facing the bay and it was great! Did some kyacking right on the bay, kids played in the same and caught some crabs off the dock. The sunset there was beautiful. We will be back next year!!

Thank you so much for the five-star review. We are thrilled that you love the Bay Resort. There is plenty to keep you busy here. Our dock is great for crabbing or just enjoying the sunset.

Staff was very friendly and was accommodating. the pool was nice and they let you bring beverages out there as long as it was in a plastic cup. this is nice because families can go out to the pool without thinking it's a party scene.

We had a bay view room, which was awesome. The sunsets were beautiful. This is a nice, quiet oasis in an otherwise rowdy town. Easy access to the beach and restaurants/bars. Close to pickup point for the trolley to Rehoboth Beach. Friendly staff, clean room and kayak rental on site made for an excellent stay!

Thank you for the feedback. We are pleased to hear you loved your bay view room and had a great stay.

I booked The Bay Resort motel based on TripAdvisor reviews and our particular needs for a relaxing vacation. We walked into a large, spacious, king sized room and knew immediately that this property would be our new "must go" vacation destination every summer. Spectacular view of Rehobeth Bay in the evening, which includes a fabulous sunset every night, is so...

Love the location, staff, pool, and recent room updates. I tried a couple other places many years ago and realized that the Bay Resort is the best spot a while back and have been coming here exclusively ever since.
