I've read the recent and old reviews and there is now ample hot water, good water pressure and the staff was nice to us. The rooms were outdated and only god knows when the carpet was last cleaned. We had to keep he window open and run the AC to keep the funky smell out. I thought we were over... More

I paid $319 a night for a two night stay from August 8th, 2014 through the 10th. That's including tax btw. I have never stayed in a place so ugly in all my life! I was in room 201. The room smelled weird/gross. I think it was from the air conditioner. There was a spider in my bed and an... More

We stayed here for one night in May 2014. We wanted a cheap place to stay mainly for a bed to sleep in. The room was nice and spacious with a big queen size bed, a small TV and air conditioning. It felt a little old but was clean overall. The bathroom also felt old but fairly clean. Late at... More

Hot room. Crappy remote. Outdated. Dirty. Fought with wifi. Outdated. Dead bugs in bed. Size of a shoe box. Noisy. ... I regret booking this. I live close to ocean city and love spending weekends there. We stay in the off season normally so the high prices are everywhere. We tried to go cheap (395$ Friday-Sunday) and apparently I expected... More

There were bugs, spiders crawling on the floor the bathroom had staines and soap scum and other people's pubic hair in the tub... More

The room was a good size, very comfortable beds and the pull out sofa looked and felt really nice. The room had a coffee machine and a hairdryer however it did not include an iron board or continental breakfast and for the cost of the room this should have been included. The staff was attentive and responsive to all requests... More

Literally the most disgusting place I've ever had to stay. If rather sleep in the bathroom at secrets. To keep my beer cold I left it outside in the sun and clear away from the fridge. There was no shower head I gave up on cleanliness all together. There was a random ulitity closet that came off of our room.... More

We arrived a few hours before check-in and didn't know what to do. They allowed us to check-in about an hour later and we were thrilled! Everyone that we came into contact with was absolutely wonderful. The only downside, well few, was that the rooms are dated, no electronic entry - need a key and you only get 1 so... More

I booked this place online and paid for the first night. Got there and finished paying for two nights, went to the room and it was horrible! We were there a matter of minutes, I went to the front desk and the guy said it was against policy to give a refund. All I wanted was the $83.50 I just... More
