Had a nice weekend with our grad-school student daughter at this gem of a throwback beach motel! Our first visit to the Delaware shore and so glad we relied on the reviews of those who return annually. Staff was very helpful. Stayed in adjoining rooms on the 2nd floor of the motel since all villas with ocean views were booked...

Our vacation got washed out in the outer banks so we headed north and came upon Dewey Beach. While looking at another ocean front hotel, we saw Adams had a vacancy sign lit do we went in. They rented us a nice ocean front room on the third floor for a good price. The hotel was clean (a little older)...

Wonderful experience. Stayed in an oceanfront villa with a million dollar view. Very clean. Very friendly office staff who was very accommodating. Had two dogs with us. Wonderful place for them. The villa was large enough for everyone. Ideal floor plan. Highly recommend. Made reservations already for May.

Reserved a first floor room a year ago and was happy to enjoy being at Adams Oceanfront again this past Columbus Day weekend for Greyhounds Reach the Beach 2016 (I have stayed here for the past 4 or 5 years). I brought my 65lb greyhound who cannot do stairs because of a recent broken leg. Friday night around 7:30pm, I...

My family has visited the Adams Resort starting in 2013 and at least once a year for the last three years without issue. However, this year, we reserved a room in the Spring of 2016 for Columbus Weekend to participate in the Greyhounds Reach the Beach weekend event. Seven days before our arrival date we requested a refund of our...

We were here with our dog three years ago and had a very positive experience. Oceanfront, dog friendly, reasonably priced...all make for a great combination!We returned this year (now with three dogs) to find the Adams Oceanfront rooms renovated and much improved. The excellent beach location cannot be improved on!

I never pass up a chance to tell people about this place - I had yet another great stay at the Adams! The staff is always so pleasant and welcoming, the villas are clean and well stocked- if there is anything you need, all you have to do is ask- you won't want for anything! I love the space of...

I did so much research before booking here! This is our third time coming to Dewey Beach and we normally stay elsewhere. When I asked for the sheets to be changed the one staff replied "well we only change the bedding after 3 days". I said "are you serious"?? Asked for towels and she said "well you have 4 don't...

I recently stayed with 13 other girl friends for a weekend of fun in Dewey. The Adams Ocean Front Resort was the perfect location to all of the restaurants we wanted to visit and great spot for the beach. The rooms are average size and clean. There is a complimentary continental breakfast offered each morning outside that includes coffee and...
