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 Outdated.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 Outdated.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

We just recently were going to stay here 06/24/14. We dropped off our bags in the room and went out to the Boardwalk for 5 hours and when we returned we found that our room was filthy. 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

Stayed for three nights as part of a big group of 13 during memorial day weekend. This motel is easy to find, well situated and satisfactory. The towels are thin and the mattresses left us a bit sore in the morning, but it was clean and quiet and the front desk staff was super kind and helpful. There's wi-fi in... More

We've stayed here three times. 2001, 2003 and 2012. First two times were great and we got a great deal for the week (7 days - about $300 each time). The last time we only stayed two days which was about $250. We obviously loved the place which was why we kept coming back. The staff even remembered us the... More

The hotel staff get an A+ for friendliness. Unfortunately though, this hotel is in sad need of repairs and updating. Moldy bathrooms, paneled walls, tattered dresser, and ripped carpeting were the bad points. The good points? Working air conditioner, hot showers, timely maid service, and proximity to fun places! NO elevator.
