"Good for the price"
The room wasn't the cleanest but it also wasn't filthy. The fridge was gross though. For the price, the room was overall decent and I will probably book here again. The location was perfect, short walk to the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Last minute booking for an ad hoc trip to the beach. For the price, it's much nicer than what I was expecting. The staff was very very very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pay a little more to stay somewhere else. It's worth it. Internet doesn't work except by picnic tables outside. Bed covers were disgusting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Typical beach motel"
Headed to Dewey beach for a bachelor party. The motel was conveniently located to Dewey beach. We were able to walk to the beach and the main attractions in Dewey in 10 minutes. Rehoboth attractions were within a 5-10 minute drive. We only slept and showered in the hotel so we were not concerned with all the amenities.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great time during our trip to the beaches. Being that we had never stayed in this area before, we were not sure of where to stay. This hotel is located in Dewey, and is a close drive/walk to the beach. However, we ended up going to Rehobeth beach (only a few miles away) during the day, and experienced the nightlife of Dewey in the evening. […] This hotel is not on the beach, and the view from the balcony is a busy street. If I had to do it over again, I would have stayed at Sea Esta 1 to have the beach right in the back. As far as cleanliness, I would give it 5 stars. For such a great price per night, this was definitely a concern of mine, and thankfully, everything was fresh and new and clean. The King room was a decent size, perhaps a tad smaller than most, but we were never really in our room. I appreciated the coffee pot, mini-fridge, microwave, and especially the wifi (because I had school work to do while there). Overall, I would stay here again for the price and cleanliness. The other occupants were our age, 30-ish, and we had no problems with noise or kids. Office staff was moderately friendly when we checked in, extremely friendly when we checked out.

"What you'd expect."
Not a bad motel the lady at the front desk was friendly. My friends and I just needed a place to lay our heads after the beach bars and this fit well. Not to far from dewey beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent Hotel for $"
Stayed for one night before a long weekend in Dewey beach. Place was fine for one night stay. For the location the rates are decent, you get what you pay for so you're not getting luxury here. Just your basic Motel which could be just fine if that's all you are looking for. Despite a recent renovation it still could use some new mattresses.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed at the Sea Esta IV before and the main reason is that it is cheap. It's not close enough to the beach for me to want to haul beach chairs and coolers there and back. They have done some repainting to more neutral colors and the bathrooms have been updated. Still, the pillows were lumpy and I couldn't get the curtains to close completely. […] These were minor things since I wasn't expecting much to begin with. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place for dog owners! Can walk to nice beach"
I enjoyed this hotel and expect to be back. 1) They let you bring dogs for a modest fee ($10 per night for out dog) 2) It is in a decent location: close enough to the beach to walk (although you do need to cross one busy road) 3) It is a close drive to the shops and foods of Rehobeth. Our room was fairly clean and the internet was faster than most. […] Only complaint would be that the tv was rather old and the remote did not work, but that wasn't really a big deal for me.

Not the best hotel, but for the price of the room, it was great! Service at the desk was absolutely phenomenal. Easy walk to Dewey Beach and a short drive to Rehoboth Board Walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The sea Esta 4 has updated their rooms with new carpet, tile and paint! For the price, I thought the accommodations were very good and the lady at the desk was very friendly and helpful. Blankets and pillows are a bit aged, so I recommend bringing your own, but other than that it was a great experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cheap hotel, close to the beach. Not very pretty, scenic, or rich in amenities, staff was very nice. You get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This hotel is a facility for divorcees to stay"
While it was not horrible, it was not good. With hardly any guests, they stuck us on the 2nd floor. There was no reason for it. At night the hot water was barely warm so it was not possible to shower. Overall - I wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review

The hotel was a very good value for the amount we paid to be so close to the beach in the middle of August. It is clear that this is not the most modern hotel but the room was clean and comfortable. What really pleased me is that I accidentally forgot something in the room and the staff was nice enough to be concerned and track the item down for me and mail it. The staff was very friendly and help during out stay.

My boyfriend and I are most of the time broke and always have to stay in budget hotels. Most of them are pretty awful and dark and dingy and being that I have a pretty nasty germ fear I am terribly uncomfortable and anxious in a lot of them. I was honestly expecting that with this hotel too, but I was very pleasantly surprised with how cleanly the entire place was! No weird marks on the bed or towels and not even a hint of sand leftover from whoever stayed in the room before us. We were able to check in right at 3pm on the dot and whoever the lady was that checked us in (wish I had her name) was extremely personable and up beat. The air conditioner didn't cool down the whole room, but if you slept on the bed next to it then it was plenty cool. The door was hard to unlock as well, but all in all I would go back to this motel every time.

I am not a person who needs a fancy hotel room to have a good time. I can sleep through pretty much anything, so a hotel on a busy street is never a problem for me. With that said, the Sea Esta Motel IV is a disappointment. For those of you who paid more, I am deeply sorry. Pros: 1. Location. 2. Pet friendly without associated smells, 3. Front desk staff was nice.4. We paid $100 a night and I'm okay with that because we were there in high season. Cons: 1. Bloody sheet on Mom's bed (it had been laundered and the stain had set, but....ewww...) 2. We had to ask for toilet paper after the room was cleaned.The second time we gave up and bought our own. 3.The one time the cleaning person acknowledged the service sign, my mother was in the room and he was rude to her. She told him never mind.

Honestly, I know I have high standards for hotels. That said, the room was overall clean. But the sheets and blankets were uncomfortable. The air conditioner was not effective or not working properly. WAY overpriced for what you get. Close to the beach, but still have to drive. Paid less to stay down the street at another 2 star that was way, way nicer (See Americinn, Lewes DE).

Way overpriced! I called ahead and rented 4 rooms for 16 people, I was informed it was $209 per night. They failed to tell me that it was an extra $15 per person per room for every room that had more than 2 people. They also failed to inform me that they only give 1 parking pass (which are a sheet of paper I could've photo copied) per room. I had 15 friends coming from many different states, so it was quite an inconvenience. At check in I told her a total of 10 cars were coming and RANDY, the check in lady, never mentioned it would be a problem until it was night and more friends were arriving. Floors were dirty, AC was mediocre, shower made a screeching noise (I felt like I was in the movie Psycho when I showered). I wouldn't recommend staying here, nor would I recommend dealing with Randy. She's difficult and rude. I am 25 years old and she spoke to me similarly to how my 2nd grade teacher spoke to me when I got in trouble. I rather camp out in my car than spend another night at this gross motel.
"Yuk. A dump. Dingy, dirty, old and on a busy street"
07/31/14 SESHLS California
Overpriced at $100 a night. Carpet was dirty, sink had cracks, front door had indentation where looked like it was punched, paint scraped off, and Wireless internet did not work on second floor. Walking into the dirty, graffiti elevator and getting off to our floor with gum on the ground. I could not imagine spending $100 for this dump. Hotwire lead us to believe that we were getting a room half off, value at $200. When we entered the hotel people checked in and paid the rack rate slightly less than we did. We felt deceived for this was not as advertised. Who scouts out these places and what a creative imagination to describe it. And, location is on a very busy street. On the positive, air conditioner worked fine and bed was comfortable. Yuck.

Over all it was a cheap motel with no frills. At first it seemed pretty clean; however, there was mold all over the ac unit and dirt on the floors by the beds from the previous guests that was not cleaned up (including shriveled up blueberries). The motel allows pets which is great even though we left our dog at home. The people in the room behind us had decided to bring their dog and leave it unattended in the room. Unfortunately for us, we had to listen to this poor dog cry and bark from 2pm when we got there til we went out that night and again starting at 7 am! They should definitely implement a pet policy preventing people from leaving their pets alone or at least have a way to contact them if their pet is disturbing other guests. When I called the front desk to complain about the noise their answer was well if the dogs barking the owners are not around so hopefully they come back soon. Really!!??

This place is cheap. I paid just about $100 for the Sunday night after the 4th of July. Therefore, I wasn't expecting the Ritz-Carlton. And the Ritz it wasn't. BUT: it was clean, a good location, friendly and helpful staff. I wouldn't want to stay here for more than a night or two, but if you're looking for a cheap and clean place to stay, you can't beat it.
"Great 4th of July"
07/05/14 bugs1964 Newark, Delaware
Came down with a couple friends for the 4th and it was great. The room was nice and clean. The staff was friendly, from Amy greeting us with a smile to Elisabeth helping us find our way around. We got to enjoy the beach, and the night life. Some great bars around. Go check the place out and have a great time.
"Hands down, my favorite place to stay while in Dewey/Rehoboth"
05/27/14 NJ S Albany, New York
We stopped on our way home from a Southern Vacation. We stay here every year and this year the Motel changed hands. THANKFULLY my favorite clerk (nice young lady who has worked here for 9 years) was on duty, training a new staff member. The rooms are painted, updated and still as reasonable as ever. Staff does make your stay top notch. We stayed at 5 places traveling over 2600 miles and this was the BEST stay of our trip. Such a pleasure to deal with helpful, courteous staff, in a facility that really cares about their customers. Wish I could find a Sea Esta IV on all of our travels ! ! !
