My wife & I spent our 30th Wedding Anniversary here just a few days ago. The rooms are clean and up to date. We had a side view of the ocean which was perfect. The free breakfast in the morning included scrabbled eggs, Canadian bacon, waffles, fruit, oatmeal, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice and more....very nice. All of the employees were very nice and made you feel like family. Devon at the front desk was amazing!! The lobby area is very nice with a large screen TV on one side and a fireplace on the other. We'd love to return.

Beach and Boardwalk
The Bethany Beach Ocean Suites is on the oceanfront so families are only a few steps away from the beach and the Atlantic Ocean. A short boardwalk (no amusement rides) is all that separates the hotel from the beach. Families will find lots of shops and restaurants along the boardwalk and promenade area, too.
There are outside guest showers just off the boardwalk to wash away any sand. Request the Presidential Suite and you'll be able to walk right out of your room onto the boardwalk and beach!
A multi-purpose game table is located in the lobby. Ask the front desk staff for the pieces to chess, checkers or shoots and ladders and kids will have lots of fun, especially on a rainy day.
Complimentary breakfast with items like eggs, sausage, yogurt, waffles and fruit is available to guests from 6 to 9 a.m. on weekdays and from 7 to 9:30 a.m. on weekends. Coffee service, along with flavored water or lemonade is in the lobby throughout the day.
99 Sea Level Restaurant
Serving lunch and dinner, the 99 Sea Level Restaurant is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to midnight. Dinner reservations are recommended in the summer months.

Planning & Tips
All About the Extras
Wi-Fi is complimentary to guests throughout the hotel.

Pets are welcome at this hotel for a $150 fee. Dogs must be under 15 pounds and a crate is required if housekeeping service is needed. Dogs are not permitted on the boardwalk or beach between May 15 and September 30, per the town of Bethany Beach.
Located near the pool, the fitness center features cardio and weight machines and overlooks the pool. The fitness center is open 24/7.
Free, covered parking is available for one vehicle per guestroom.
The Art of Smart Timing
Bethany Beach is mostly a seasonal town so during the summer months, the hotel is at its busiest. Spring and fall, however, also draw people to town.
Bethany Beach, situated between Ocean City, Maryland. and Dewey Beach, is located about an hour south of Dover, Delaware. The Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport, located in Maryland, is about 45 minutes from Bethany Beach, but offers limited flights. Philadelphia International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport are both about two and a half hours away from Bethany Beach.
Families can easily walk to the beach and several nearby shops and restaurants. The short boardwalk is also nice for a short walk or run, but a stroller may be a good idea for younger kids. A car is needed to venture further away from the hotel, as the main drag through Bethany Beach is considered a highway.
For Mom and Dad
If parents can sneak away for some quiet relaxation time, the Oceanova Spa is the place. Located near the pool and fitness center, the spa offers full body treatments, massages, manicures and pedicures. Oceanove is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
99 Sea Level Bar
Complete a date night with cocktail at the lobby bar. The bar is open until 10 p.m.
