"Condition of our room when we arrived."
When we arrived on Monday the shower stall had hair on it and the ice bucket had water in it from the previous people. I reported this to the girl at the desk on Tuesday morning. Tuesday evening the room was still not cleaned up. Wednesday morning I went to report the room but there was a new girl there by the name of Darline. I told her the problems and she even took the time to go to our room and even take pictures. Wednesday evening when we returned the room was perfectly clean and we even had hand soap. I want to thank Darline for making our last night perfect.

"About what you'd expect"
I don't want to bash the place because it's pretty much what you expect. Overpriced during the summer (because they can get that much..and don't blame them for doing so), but I wouldn't go out of my way to stay there any other time. They were good about their pet policy. They don't make you book a full 3-night weekend. They were accommodated a big truck taking up more than one space. And they don't charge you "per person." So no complaints about that stuff. However, if you're one for cleanliness, then this is definitely not a place for you. If you can tolerate it, then you will survive. Mattresses and carpets are from another century and definitely show their wear. There was still coffee in the pot from another guest...that one kinda grossed me out (thankfully I didn't drink it thinking my roommate made it). Location is pretty good. It's a tolerable walk to the bars, restaurants, and beach. All in all, it's not a great place, nor is it atrociously terrible. Depending on what other area hotels are charging, you might do better, you might not.

"Had hoped for more!"
Long check in process due to glitches. No housekeeping service at all until the 3rd day. The office was not open when it was supposed to be. The motel seemed understaffed.

This was a solid hotel, in a good location, with easy access to anything you could want to do in coastal Delaware. Sadly there weren't any dirty laundry bags I have become accustomed to in hotel stays, nor an assortment of shower supplies and the worst part of our stay was finding a bag and of fish heads in the freezer. All and all these things were very minor in the grand scheme of things, the room was clean and the beds decently comfortable for the level of hotel.

"Good value for the price."
We enjoyed our 2 night stay. Room was large and had all the amenities we needed (coffeemaker, refrig, microwave, good shower) Staff was friendly and helpful and very responsive. Close to get into Rehoboth Beach, Dewey Beach, or the state park. Only problem was that the air conditioner unit leaked, making the carpet wet in front of it, which was next to the bed. Only real discomfort was having the A/C blowing directly on one of us all night.

"My sea esta iv"
It was a good stay for the time I was there but I wish there was breakfast and the service waa better. We arrived and had to wait because the machines were down so we could not check in. The elevator was extremely slow. There was no lower pool. The TV would not come on for hours. If you need a place to just crash and you do not plan on staying in the room much at all while at the beach. This is the place to do that. The rates were great for me though. Three nights-$300.

"Good simple place for a trip to the beach."
This motel fit what I was looking for. Room was fine and clean, with great a/c, and reasonably well located. It's walking distance to the beach in dewey - probably a 10 minute walk. If you have a load of stuff, or you've got kids with you, the walk might be a pain, but if not, it's not bad. Dewey's not rehoboth though, so there's no boardwalk and strip of places right off the beach. For that. you'd need to drive or bike. The motel is also walking distance to the bars and restaurants in Dewey, which aren't bad. Not a cool beach town vibe like Rehoboth ave, but good places to eat and drink, lots of choices, some with live music, without having to drive. They say parking is first come / first serve, but while I was there, there didn't seem to be any problem with spots, and they were booked, so parking capacity seems fine.

"Surprisingly quiet"
When we arrived, I was concerned that it would be noisy -- it is by the road and there was a family with young children in the next room. We heard neither traffic nor neighbors. Check in and out were easy and pleasant. The room was clean. Good value for a place in walking distance of the beach.

The room was clean. It was slightly small. The parking was adequate. It was a 10 minute walk to the beach. You have to drive to the boardwalk and restaurants. The cleaner woke us up at 7:30 am on our last day by being incredibly loud right near our room. Overall good stay.

"Moving from one hotel to the other!"
Actually we were moved to the Sea Esta III because the room at the IV had a bad odor, dresser drawers were broken and only driveable to beach. Management was very gracious to give us another room at their other hotel. Conditions were much better, bigger room, kitchenette, rear deck and one block within walking distance of beach.

"Old but suitable."
Stayed one night, the people working at the front counter were friendly and nice. The room is what you would expect for a beach hotel that has not been updated. The location is about perfect and the room actually quiet for the location. The price is reasonable for the location and the type of lodging.

"Quick overnighter at the beach"
We stayed at the Sea Esta on the Saturday night before Memorial Day 2015. Just needed some place to sleep hopefully close to the beach so we could take a walk on the beach. The motel is actually in Dewey Beach easily within walking distance of the Atlantic-side beach and also the bay-side, near plenty of restaurants, the famous Bottle and Cork, (yeah, it's still there after all these years), etc. The room was ok, staff was nice, like I said, just some place to sleep, which is what a motel in Dewey Beach typically is because you don't go there to sleep.

"Great"
I had arived to the hotel to check in when they said that our room wasn't was we had booked they were going to have to put us in a room with double beds. On Valentine's day what fun is that right? Lol but the lady at the front desk gave us late check out with was amazing. Even tho we accidentally slept a little past they were mad or try to charge us they let us gather our things and get out at a reasonable time for them. I would recommend this hotel because the service they provide is very nice. I havnt been to a place where the lady at the desk kept a smile even tho I had given he a slight attitude. Which I'm very sorry about. They room wasn't bad either is was very clean actually and I liked that the room key was an actual lock instead of a key card. I have a problem with staying in hotels with fears that someone might slip in through the night but I definantly felt secure there. I recommend if you are looking for a place definantly look here.
