Although the hotel experience was not the best. The spot we got on the beach was great. Kids had fun, beach is clean, no profanity allowed. They have rentals like umbrellas and chairs, priced fairly. So if you forget your chairs and/ or mbrellas don't fret.

I could not get over the amount of people that were on the beach. It was a lot!!!!! And every once in a while the life guards would blow their whistles for every one to get out of the water and gather around to talk about beach safety. Had never seen that on a beach before.

You have a nice boardwalk, the beach is clean and has lifeguards on duty most of the time. There's plenty of shopping, hotels, and food all within walking distance as well as amusement rides and games for the kids of all ages!

The beach was clean and the views are amazing. Enjoyed sitting on the beach and taking it all in. Love how they take pride in not wanting to hear profanity (having signs up on the boardwalk) especially when it is a family resort area.

Coming down to OCMD started many years ago when NJ (our home) was having huge problems with spoiled beaches ! Came here on a recommendation and never looked back. This is the REAL Ocean City !!! Not much to dislike........MUCH to Love !! Just one of the neatest shore towns you will visit.

Our grandchildren were amused for almost an hour climbing on the concrete Dinosaur Bones that blends well in the sand. Great place for photos. Capture a shot of your child hatching from a Dinosaur egg.

A clean family safe and great place to spend a day or even longer. Well patrol and life guarded. Where else can you see people and dolphin's as you enjoy the sun and fun. I'v visited during peak summer season as well as after labor day and both have there advantages. Lots of parking and the beach access is free... More

This is by far my favorite beach to go to, all the way from PA. It's clean, free and not usually wall-to-wall people. There is a nice atmosphere that OCMD beach has. Dolphins are usually visible from the beach in the summer, along with boats and at night you can see the fishing trawlers.
