For the $250 a night, this hotel was NOT worth it. I stayed here with my family. First of all, the beds felt very hard and a pain to sleep on. Another thing was the bathroom. Every appliance in there was fine. Other than the faucet on the sink falling off the first time I used it and it was... More

We had an ocean view room with balcony on the boardwalk which was great. The room was very clean. My husband found a groupon for the hotel which was terrific and a great saving. The discount card they gave us for the restaurant attached to the hotel was useless due to too many exceptions (hours available, not good on specials,... More

Decent place to stay and close to everything. Room was big enough for 2 adults and 2 kids with no one feeling over crowded. Staff pretty friendly and willing to help with any issues. Great internet service and beautiful beach views. I found the pool area to be quite unkempt most of the time.

We just stayed here August 23-25. This hotel was awesome! We had an oceanfront room and WOW what a view!!! Room was clean, spacious and the staff were extra friendly. There's a garage for guests behind the hotel. I will definitely be booking this hotel next year.

I have stayed in Ocean City many times over the years. Typically, we stay on the Boardwalk. I have had some great stays and some not-so-great stays. This is one of my great stays. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights in mid-July, prime time for vacations in Ocean City. Even though their were tons of people, I still... More

For the price of our room, pretty expensive, the rooms were too small. Loved the fact that we were so close to the beach😊

We LOVED the staff and the hotel...everyone was very friendly and I was impressed with the cleanliness for a beach hotel..no sand in the carpet, no musty smell. That's impressive for a beach hotel! :) We will be back, guaranteed!

Very nice room. Spacious, cleaning service was very good and plenty of hot water. Wish there was an ice machine on a closer floor than the ground floor and the balcony was a little wider (I am afraid of heights). All in all would definitely recommend.

Room was clean with a nice view of the ocean. AC worked ok. Nice size room for 2 people. The staff was very nice and helpful. Centrally located on the Boardwalk and an easy walk to all the sites Would definitely recommend and stay again. We had a great trip!!
