The Empress Motel in Ocean City MD. is a great little motel, its clean has a really nice pool and is a half a block from the boardwalk and beach on ocean side so you don't have to cross the street. The owners also own a apartment housing/cottage right next door. If your looking for a nice place to stay... More

Almost everytime I visit Ocean City, I stay at the Empress. The rooms are clean and well kept. The staff is always sweeping, cleaning, etc. to keep this motel up to par. It is not a fancy motel, but it is a very good bargain considering that other motels at the same rate would be terribly sub-par. The ownership truly... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Empress for over 13 years. We first started out one of the owner's other motels in Ocean City over 23 years ago with wonderful experiences. We started staying at the Empress when that motel was sold, thanks to the great desk clerk (Yvonne). My husband and I always stay on the... More

This will be our 3rd year staying at the Empress (Sept 2013) The place is extremely clean and well managed. Office, janitorial and maintenance staff are extremely helpful, friendly and hard working. We stayed on the 3rd floor the 1st year and on the 1st floor last year. The location is great !! Only steps from the beach, boardwalk, shops... More

It's very hard to shop on line for a beach motel & I was holding my breath until I arrived at the Empress. I was so happy to see more upgrades than anyone would expect at an older motel at the shore. The room carpet was obviously updated, nice flat screen, even clean/newer balcony carpet. Additionally, clean & well maintained... More

This was my first trip to Ocean City and I travelled with my wife and two teenage daughters. We loved Ocean City and plan to return. The beach/town we loved, the motel we did not. That does not mean it would not be right for you. You just need to know what you are in for. Yes the price was... More

The Empress is a small but clean motel. We have stayed here several times. It is located steps from the boardwalk and beach. It sits behind another building so there is not any oceanfront. The rooms are small but have everything you need when it comes to staying at the beach. We have children and like to stay at places... More
