This hotel was old and dirty. It was clear that it had not been kept very well. The floors inside the room looked as if they had never been swept or mopped. She shower had tons of hair left in it...I did bring my own Lysol and bleach to disinfect everything. The room was far less than my expectations.

First day they were not cleaned bed and bath tub. Since I'm sensitive some diseases may spread. But other than that incident, every thing is fine.

My family and I just visited ocean city, MD again this year. Wanted ocean front room but waited until the last minute to book it. Not many choices left at a reasonable price.

This hotel is in need of a MAJOR renovation ! The location and views of the ocean and Boardwalk is nice but rooms are dingy and tired. Bathroom is closet size and sink is outside the bathroom almost like a afterthought .... Pool area is adequate .

We live fairly close to Ocean City and decided on a whim to go for one night. Used Rewards program for a room. When we arrived, the front staff was very friendly and quick in getting us our room key. Elevator has a glass window. I've seen complaints that the glass is dirty. These complaints are probably from people who... More

Flies all over the room. The wash sink is right as you enter the room. I kept thinking I would hit it. The balcony was dingy, and the bedspreads looked they could have used a good washing. For the price, I was surely disappointed.

Thank you for your review, I am sorry to hear that we did not met your expectations. I would love to have you come back and try a different room type.
