This a retro type motor lodge. The facility was clean and quiet and a good value for the money. It's not a modern facility but an older motor lodge with character and great location. I will come back.

The location can't be beat. At the north end of Dewey Beach, one block from the ocean and about 4 blocks from the bay, you can hear the surf from the parking lot. It's quirky. Each room comes with its own fly swatter embossed with the name of the hotel no less. The climate control system is ancient. The walls are so thin I could hear sighing in the bathroom next door. The parking lot if made of small stones so as to not track dirt or mud into the rooms but which grab hold of your tires so it's hard to back out (in an all wheel drive car!) Amenities were typical: microwave, coffee maker, fridge, TV with 20 stations, nice toiletries, extra towels and blankets (for when the heater doesn't work). Staff was very pleasant. Room rate was very reasonable. I think I'll be back.

My dog really liked it and it was close to the beach at a low price. No beg bugs! Room smelled musty.
