The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean. I stay there a weekend in April nearly every year. Always great experience. We use the meeting room on the first floor for our program and receive excellent help from the staff to set up.

I haven't been to OC, Maryland for 25 years. What a treat to see so many hotels upgraded, including this one! It did not look or feel like the HoJo's of the 70's. It was clean, updated...staff were pleasant..housekeeping was excellent! Get a Oceanfront room...you won't be sorry!

This was not my first stay here and the building has been updated some since my last visit. Staff was friendly. Room was clean. I wish there was more space in the bathroom but it is an older building. Two of us shared a double room and we managed fine but it would be hard for four people. Public restroom... More

We were so happy that it was on the boardwalk so we could walk to see what is in the area plus we could walk on the beach. We were given the room quickly by a very happy and helpful person behind the desk. The value was great as was the view from the room. Highly rated!

The Oceanfront has the feel of a quaint throwback to the 50's but, with important adjustments for today. The room was small and well cared for. The bathroom is tiny by more modern standards but, it works. This is not a 3D printer motel/hotel. It has distinct personality with lots of surprising little touches.Whoever oversaw the tiny details did a... More

The staff here was beyond friendly, from the front desk to the maids, everybody had a smile on their face and was always happy to help. There is a lot to be said about that in todays world, especially in the field of hospitality. Pros of this hotel were: -Friendly Staff -Location...Right on the boardwalk! Right in the middle also,...

Very pleasant staff, always greeting you, helping you or just saying Hi. Clean. Right on the boardwalk. Restaurant is nice. Food is good, no complaints. There is a smell is the elevators, not as strong as last year's trip, but not enough to keep us from booking next year. Maid service is the best. Those ladies and the male porter... More

I've stayed there 3 times and have already made reservations for this summer. It's central to the boardwalk and offers very nice accommodations, including WiFi. The bar and restaurant are really bad but they don't run or manage them. But there are many other placed to eat and drink within minutes on the boardwalk. The rooms have always been clean... More
