WORST HOTEL IN OCEAN CITY. not only did they cancel my room reservation THE DAY OF but they said they would refund me all of my money but they didn't and I had to open a case with my bank!

If you like flies then you'll love this hotel!!!! Over 50 flies in the 1st room they gave us. They did move us to the room right next door that had about 5 flies, which you could say is better, NOT!!!! The room was dirty and the toilet didn't flush. We checked out without spending 1 hour in the room.... More

If you are looking for something close to the beach, nothing fancy, this is the place. No clock or phone in the rooms. Decor retro 70's Beach Bum. Location to the beach, boardwalk, etc. within a short walk. Staff is friendly and helpful in recommending places to eat or see to make the Ocean City experience memorable. We enjoyed our... More

The room was great - I had read reviews that made me question my decision to stay here but I was pleasantly surprised! The room itself was extremely clean and was spacious. The people working at the front desk were very nice and friendly - when we got our parking pass early (around 12pm) we were able to pay off... More

It was an extremely clean place to stay at! The staff treated my family and I with tremendous respect. They were very willing to negotiate a proper price that worked for my family and I and tried to find discounts wherever possible for us. I would strongly recommend it to everyone I meet!

Was looking for an affordable place to stay for a couple nights and came across the beach bum motel. They had great prices and when I called to book the room, the man AJ I spoke with was extremely polite and knowledgable. I ended up getting the room for cheaper then I had anticipated. During my stay, the room was... More

Nice location, large rooms, 2 double beds. Clean full size bathroom, Priced right. Staff nice and helpful. Parking onsite and cameras for security. Only complaint, maids never made our beds and there was a $5 per night additional fee per night?

Stayed here in September 2014 for a girls weekend. It's not a fancy place but fit our needs perfectly! It was reasonable priced and close to the Boardwalk and bars. We stayed in double bed room with a full kitchen. We were very surprised and happy to find ice already made in the freezer. House keeping came with fresh towels... More

This is the most disgusting place I have every stayed. Not safe the lock was broken and we told there is no maintaince worker there to help. It was so dirty and smelled terrible. I felt very unsafe and have never been treated so poorly.
