“Good Deal and Pet Friendly”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Chose this hotel for the pet-friendly aspect. Room had a mini-fridge, microwave, small table and two lumpy twin beds. Cleanliness was so-so, but you are not there to stay in the room all day, so it serves it's purpose. Noise level was a bit much and went on until the wee hours from club/bar across the street. Management/owner is friendly, but line staff were a bit confused on hotel policies and basic Q&A.

Pool is small, but dogs are allowed in the pool area so that made it great to me. Rooms could use updating, parking is included and the location is right by the beach and a few eateries. Also has a deck/patio and everyone hangs out with their pets and socializes freely. Bottom line: if you want to bring your dog(s) along for a road trip, this place fits the bill. If your looking for comfort and ambiance you might be better off renting a condo or beach house.

Room Tip: Make certain to keep your reservation information (and who you spoke with) on hand since staff seem...

Great place to stay.. We just planned and booked our 2nd vacation of the year at this Motel. Centrally located in the small town of Dewey, you can walk to ANY activity. Lots of stores eateries and entertainment. Pet friendly Motel, but you would never know it. Town is pet friendly and you can take them just about anywhere. See you at the end of the month Dewey!!! Thanks Atlantic Oceanside for a clean, roomy and affordable place to stay.

My wife and I stayed at the Atlantic Oceanside Motel with some friends as a last trip to the beaches this year. In our opinion, when affordability, location (whether you are there for the beach or the nightlife), and quality are calculated in, the motel was a great choice and we would definitely go back.

The cost was very affordable, especially considering the location. There will be an additional cost (it was $10 per person, per night for us) if there are more than two staying in a room.

The location is right on Rt 1. in the heart of Dewey Beach. It is one block from the beach. It is also a very easy walk to all of the best known bars and restaurants in Dewey. Of course, it is a 2 minute walk to the closest Jolley Trolly stop that will take you into Rehoboth.

The motel itself is a typical open air walkway, older, beach hotel. However, it is well maintained by an attentive and friendly staff. There is a small pool area that is well maintained. There is also a large second floor balcony with tables and chairs overlooking the main drag through town. The rooms are slightly dated with a tube TV and a refrigerator in every room (two beds or one king are available). The bathroom is small, dated but functional. More importantly it was clean.

So overall, we were pleased with our stay. The 4 star rating is relative to the fact that it is a Dewey Beach hotel without the expectation of luxury. It was clean, convenient, and affordable with a nice staff. We plan on returning and recommend it.

typical motel room one block from the beach. jolly trolly stop one block away. we stayed on the 3rd floor which was quieter than the bottom level. pool opened early in the morning and closed at 9pm. the only downfall was parking. the lot was almost always full and people parked badly and the TV's were really old and the picture was bad. other than that I would recommend this hotel for the price to be so close to the beach....

Room Tip: 3rd floor was great. it was a pain carrying all your baggage up the steps, but well worth it. less n...

My parents are currently staying here right now as I speak. And, I feel rightfully so to give a very great review of this fine establishment since my parents took my sister and I here throughout our teenage years. This is the best place to stay within the Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach Area. It is the most affordable and cost-effective. It is also the nicest and directly in front of the beach. Growing up at this resort, I can only say positive comments about this place. It is just a short drive from the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk and Rehoboth Beach Tanger Shopping Outlets. Dewey Beach is the best beach to stay at throughout the 5 possible beaches (Rehoboth/Dewey/Bethany/Fenwick Island/Ocean City). And, Atlantic Oceanside is the best place to stay at Dewey Beach!
