We have stayed here many times. During our May visit we room toured a variety of rooms. We hand picked our rooms for this visit and they were perfect! Friendly staff that always spoke to us, especially Pat! Found the property to be clean despite being end of summer. View from balconies fantastic and this is best location in town!... More

We stated at the Commander the first 2 years after it opened in 1997. I'm not really a beach person, but that changed this year after this trip. I planned this trip 3 weeks prior after spending a week trying to find an oceanfront view. I was a bit worried about some negative reviews about the place not being updated... More

The instant my friends and I drove into the hotel parking area, I became quickly frustrated. There wasn't enough parking space to park our car so we had to park blocks away, crossing a main road in order to park. But that didn't stop me from being optimistic. The view of the hotel from the outside was very promising. The... More

This was our second time staying at The Commander for Jeep weekend in Ocean City. I feel that the price is pretty good for being right on the boardwalk and having a balcony. It is right on the boardwalk on 14th street with a beautiful view. The staff is very friendly, check in was simple and quick and same with... More

To be honest, I was a little leery about staying at a hotel on the boardwalk but it ended up being a really nice place. We had plans to stay at a beach house with another family but the reservations fell through and we were able to get a suite at the Commander on last minutes notice. The hotel is... More

Wife and i just spent a short weekend at the Commander Hotel in Ocean City MD. This visit was a birthday gift for my wife from our son. Couldn't ask for a better location in Ocean City. Everything in OC happens around the boardwalk. And this hotel is located on the boardwalk at 14th street. Check in was flawless and... More

I liked this hotel. It was clean, had a great view, and was overall enjoyable. The staff was very friendly and let us use the pool after we had checked out. My only complaint is that there was some mildew on the ceiling in the bathroom. Overall, though, it was a good experience!

From the minute my family was greeted at the reservation desk, we were met with phenomenal customer service from the agents, the maids, the pool staff, and any employee we happened to meet in the halls. We made a few calls for help with directions, etc. to the front desk, and they were always willing to help. Our room was... More

This is the second time I've stayed in the Commander Hotel, and I only stayed in it again because I love its location. The first time i stayed, I opened the pull out couch and found a shirt… must have been from the previous people. So the "maids" obviously didn't even bother to pull it out to check for anything...

The bathroom door stuck horribly,... More
