“Our new family vacation spot!!!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

After MUCH research on tripadvisor and looking at tons of sites of hotels online, I came across this one. All the reviews sounded great, so we decided to go for it! Myself, husband, 2 year old son, my sister and her almost 4 year old daughter went together and stayed in one room. Fourth floor. There is no private balcony, but an amazing public balcony for the entire floor that spans the length of the floor. Very nice! The view from there is awesome! You can see very far! There is breakfast in the morning. Egg, cheese & meat omelets and French toast cooked in muffin tins. Absolutely DELISH! My fav was the French toast. Bagels, butter, cream cheese, English muffins, pastries, juice, coffee, tea, even pop tarts for those less adventurous. Big spread that you wouldn't expect for a complimentary hotel breakfast. We ate by the pool in the ocean breeze. Wonderful! Our room keeper, Marcus, even took the kids blankets and folded them up on the beds and placed their stuffed animals on top. Very cute! Only downside was the lack of an elevator up on the 4th floor (a huge trek up with bags and a cooler!). The beds were also too hard and my 6-mo pregnant self was not comfortable each night. Neither was my husband. But even with all that, we decided on the first morning that this is our new family hotel destination. Right on the beach and only a 3 minute drive to Rehoboth for all the great places to eat and shop!!
We WILL be back!!!! :)

Room Tip: Unless you like hiking up stairs with all of your stuff, go for the ground floor (obstructed view fr...

This was our first visit to Dewey Beach. The hotel is quiet and very clean. Awesome complimentary breakfast with many item selections. Complimentary wine and chocolate chip cookies in the evening....nice touch. Fabulous view from our 3rd floor room. Small microwave and fridge in our room was very convenient. Friendly staff. Great pool. Short walk to great restaurants. Family friendly and definitely will go back!

Room Tip: If you want ocean views stay on second or third floor. Can sleep to the sound of the ocean. Private...

We booked 2 rooms for 4 nights in mid July based on its location...right on the beach!! I requested 1 room on the ground floor for my handicapped mom and her sister, which was an excellent choice. I had an oceanfront room on the 3rd floor with the kids, which was fine...the climb up the stairs wasn't too bad. Upon arrival, the front desk clerk (Eric) was very friendly, helpful and even graciously helped my mom and her sister with their luggage and got them settled in their room...now that is what I call awesome service! :-) The morning breakfast was great, cheese and wine at 5pm wonderful, and the cookies at 8pm were delish! The rooms were a bit tight, but manageable. The fridge was decent size, and the beds were comfy. The other guests and staff were all very friendly and we made lots of new friends during our stay! The beach was clean and not crowded..very family oriented. The surf was a little rough at times and the cool water temperature took some getting used to, but the kids loved it. The hotel had decent beach chairs you could use..you just had to stop by the front desk and sign them out for the day, and the clerk would go and unlock them for you. We rented the heavy duty beach umbrellas on the beach ($12 per day per umbrella). The pool was wonderful..clean and the water felt great after spending the day on the beach. Sitting out on the 3rd floor balcony was a real treat...it is a small balcony and only fits 2 chairs and a table but is very relaxing and the view is just awesome! The kids really enjoyed going down to the beach at night and playing with glowsticks and sparklers. The town of Dewey offers some wonderful activities for the family on the beach, which is just a short walk from the hotel. They have a movie night and a bon fire another night. This is now our favorite beach location and we look forward to visting the Atlantic View motel next July!

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms above the 1st floor have wonderful views!

As an independent hotel the decision to stay with us for the first time is often due to a recommendation by a friend or Trip advisor. Once you walk into our lobby we work hard to show that we offer a great value at a fantastic hotel that delivers five star service. Our goal is to make the first stay with us the first of many to come as we are interested in making long term guest relationships. Thank you for staying with us and thanks you for placing the review it is greatly appreciated.

What a great hotel! I had been planning a girls weekend at Dewey for a while and after a few weeks of searching, I chose Atlantic View based on a recommendation from Stephanie who works there. She described it perfectly for what we were looking for. Upon check-in, we were treated very well and accomodated as needed (we had 2 cars and she assisted us in getting a parking pass for the second car for the town of Dewey) Fresh cookies every night at 8 were a plus! The room was SUPER clean and tidy, plenty of towels and amenities, and we even had a cute little balcony to sit out on. During the day we were offered chairs to use while on the beach which was a great space saver for packing the car. In the morning we had a fantastic breakfast in the lobby and sat by the pool (Stephanie even told me they make all the food there - the french toast baked muffins were phenomenal!!) The hotel is located in such a great spot. Basically right across the street from all the main bars/restaurants. We were able to walk to everything and not have to worry about driving or parking.

I ABSOLUTELY plan on staying here again and am already looking for a weekend to take my mom for a mother/daugther get away. THANK YOU Stephanie for making my girls weekend one of the best so far!!

Very nice little Hotel, only steps to the beautiful Beach, Mrs. Shirley and her staff were always helpful, and Happy, no matter what time of the day or night it was, Seems like Mrs. Shirley worked 24/7 the king room had plenty room for my husband and myself and our 10 year old boy Adam. who slept on the sofa bed, they also have beach chairs you can use, and even some toys for the kids to take to the beach, washer and dryer was nice as well, I was surprised with the breakfast, we did not expect hot eggs, french toast, they were made into little muffin size, but it was perfect, the staff knew the area as well, and gave us great ideas on where to go for crabs..they were the best too. as you come from the beach the hotel has a hose off and shower area, which was great and the pool was always clean and inviting, very close to everything, ocean side 2nd and 3rd floors you can see the ocean from your balcony then you have the roof, which was perfect with chairs so you can relax. thank you Mrs. Shirley and your great staff for a great vacation on the beach.

Room Tip: oceanside is a must, no elevator, you must climb stairs, but so well worth it.

While we also believe we have an excellent location, when it is coupled with the great service from our front desk staff and the clean accommodations provided by our housekeeping staff we know we offer the best choice in a hotel at the beach.

Wow! The Atlantic View was everything I'd hoped and more. Is it an older property? Yes. The rooms are small and the bathrooms are tiny. It doesn't matter in the slightest. The location alone would make people want to stay there; it is directly on the beach at a perfect location with an almost private beach feeling. Walking distance to Dewey restaurants and nightlife, just a 5-10 minute drive to Rehoboth boardwalk scene. Also, the whole place is spotless, with fantastic service. The decor is charming, the amenities outstanding (breakfast, beach chairs, wine hour, freshly baked cookies, in-room micro/fridge ,etc.), the parking lot is private, and the view is unreal. When we walked into our oceanfront room and saw the beach right through the window we were drawn out the french door to our private balcony. Heaven! The tray of champagne with the sweet cupcake and gift (cool hotel tote bag!) was totally unexpected and really lovely! All I did was mention in my reservation that I couldn't wait to surprise my husband with this trip for his birthday! We LOVE the Atlantic View Hotel and cannot wait to go back - SOON!!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money for oceanfront. Second and third floor are best for views and privacy.
