We have stayed at the Hilton four times over the last six months, but my kids have been dying to stay at the Commander since it's on the boardwalk. We got our chance this week. We were at the Hilton for three nights, and when we checked out, our van broke down (naturally, right!?). The Hilton welcomed us back, but... More

The Commander was very clean, affordable and loved the layout of the room. We stayed in the ocean front room, 6th floor. The room had two TVs a seperate living room and a large refrigerator, not those small college size frigs. The Skipjack restaurant on site seved a terrific breakfeast. (buffet on weekends) We were not able to enjoy lunch... More

My friend and I booked a stay for us and her two children (Ages 4 & &7) at the Commander last summer after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We have taken many trips to Ocean City back in our young single days and stayed in many of OC's boardwalk hotels--some nice and some not-so-nice. We loved the Commander! The location... More

We love this hotel because they are very happy to accomodate people with chemical sensitivites or allergies and they don't have an attitude about it. Please note if you are a smoker, this IS a NON-SMOKING Hotel, HOWEVER, I understand that you can smoke if you book in the Cabana Bldgs. I was told that Smoking isn't allowed on the... More

I stayed at the Commander Hotel for one night during Labor Day week in September. Unfortunately, it was right after spending two nights at the new Hilton Suites on 32nd street. That did not bode too well for the Commander in comparison, especially as it was more expensive than the Hilton. However, the woman at check in, P.J., was simply... More

Stayed here in the spring during SpringFest. We were impressed with the entire hotel. Liked it so much that we returned this fall. Great views of the ocean and the boardwalk. Room was very clean and comfortable. The entire staff were outgoing and friendly. We will stay here again.

Avoid Room 206 Balcony is directly over SlipJack Resturant. Other hotel guests like to feed to pigeons so every morning I woke up to that sound. Note: 2 to 3 screened windows that open for... More

After years of visiting Ocean City, this is the first time we stayed at the Commander. It was last minute and only a cabana was available. We were very impressed with everything. The room was lovely and the staff was courteous and friendly. The pool is nice and big and stays open late. The only problem we had was that... More

We were drawn to the Commander by good reviews and good location, and we were not disappointed. Parts of the hotel seem to have been redone in recent years and it really shows. The lobby is beautiful and creates a great first impression, paired with an incredibly friendly staff (PJ is the nicest lady I've ever dealt with at a... More
