Great location

The hotel was located in a great spot just off the highway and a very short walk to the ocean beach. My reservation was waiting and check in was easy. I planned ahead from reading previous reviews and had Febreeze in hand (several reports of musty smell in room) and glad I did. Upon opening the door, room was "dated" but in order, but there was a strong "musty" odor. The Febreeze helped a lot. Room served it's purpose for our time there...beds were okay...bathroom was adequate except the toilet had zero room and me being 6'4" and a big guy, made it very difficult to "access". For the money, and it's location, not a bad deal, but rooms do need some work. If you want a quick cheap get-a-way close to the beach, this place does fit the bill.

so so

I have stayed here before and it was always satisfactory. This time we found a half bottle of shampoo in the shower. We did not get room service one day. Just drop keys off at front desk and we are walking to car underneath the deck when my girlfriend gets water poured on her head. Staff was dumping a trash can above and she was hit with water. Staff tried to say it was rain water, but it was still from a trash can. NO apology. The front desk did give a room key back so she could RE-shower. One bad experience out of about 5......

Nice off season beach spot

Nice off season beach spot, close to the Georgetown baseball tournaments. Nice, clean place and the staff was very accomodating.

The room was nice and clean, the only problem is that I had to go1 mile up the road to the other site to check in and then go back to the hotel to sleep.

Great location

I got to the hotel and they did not have my reservation. The hotel was full but they just had a cancellation before I walked in so I got lucky. Could have been a nightmare and I don't feel comfortable booking, traveling and having to wonder if the hotel got my reservation or not.

Good location but very old rooms

The hotel needs complete renovation. Old bathroom, very old furniture, wet carpet, stinky rooms. Big parking. Very close to the beach

Good location

For a last-minute day trip, staying at the Sea Esta was a pretty good choice. The location is the best part of this motel, it's only a few minutes' walk from the Dewey Beach nightlife.
