From check in to check out, this was a very disappointing vacation. Waited fifteen minutes to check in while front desk person answered the phone twice. Checked out room and found bottle caps on floor and no trash bags in trash cans. The furnishings were rough and the tab curtains would not provide adequate privacy from outdoor neighbors. Only lock... More

My son and his wife came home from the Army and wanted to go to Ocean City MD. We booked this the day of going down(quick). We were very surprised that such great accomidations could be had in Ocean City at such crazy, insane prices(cheap). So close to the boardwalk and fishing dock(fun). We stayed for just one night, but... More

While staying at the Beach Bum Motel my friend lost his parking pass that he paid $70.00 for. The motel has his type of car, license plate number, and the dates of the arrival to departure logged Into their computer. When he went to the office for another pass they told him he had to pay another $60 for the... More

Dear Larry, I had sent you a private message as well. As you know that was the additional parking pass that was purchased by your friend for the overflow lot. We don't have the information logged into the computer, but you put the make and model information on the ticket that you must put on the dashboard, so it cannot... More

We had a king suite, very roomy. Bed comfy, lots of good pillows! Looks as if it was recently painted, although furniture is aged. Clean. Nice pool area, although we didn't use. Easy walk to beach and boardwalk. Staff (especially the young man who checked us in and worked the desk in the evenings) was extremely friendly & helpful. The... More

Sorry this is so late. My husband and I stayed at Beach Bum for from July 1st-July 4th. We were there for our honeymoon. I planned the wedding and husband planned honeymoon. (Tight budget for honeymoon, went cheaper on hotel so we could do things like parasail and jet ski). I will admit I expected much more upon arrival to... More

Motel was very close to the boardwalk. We stayed in the newly renovated first floor of the main building. The room had only the basics. There were no extras such as a hair dryer or extra toiletries. Also, there didn't appear to be any phone and only one hanger in the "closet" area, neither of which really bothered us as... More

Great location close to the boardwalk and beach, no need to use the car after we arrived and parking was not an issue. Room was fairly simple and not decorated with cheesy seashell pictures but with modern pretty bright paintings of beach scenes and had some outdated furniture and limited TV channels, some of which the sound was out, but...
