First let me say as a Travel Agent I do contemplate a review before I write one and try to analyze all angles. Unfortunate things happen that may beyond someone's control. I am well aware that not all hotels or resorts are perfect and that certain conditions may occur. With that being said the one area that can absolutely be... More

Me and my family planned a seven day vacation from Pennsylvania to Ocean City Maryland, After staying at the ratchet shoreham hotel on the boardwalk for one night we found this gem next-door, all other hotels in the area for this. Of the summer were over $250 a night, the manager offered me a king suite bay view with a... More

But, the staff we're pretty good, always friendly and the maids did "try" to maintain the rooms as best as foreign workers on below minimum wage can or will! Floors in the rooms are slippery from all the suntan lotion and cleaning products, we never walked barefoot in the room. The bathroom floor was just plain disgusting, there's no other... More

Terrible! The AC did not work, the room keys repeatedly had to be re-keyed and they ran out of clean towels. Our AC did not work and we reported it 3 separate times. Each time they sent mechanics to our room and told us it would soon cool off. It never did. The next morning we requested another room or... More

This is our third year in a row visiting OC for the sand soccer tournament. We have stayed at the Monte Carlo and the Comfort Inn Boardwalk. The Tidelands is the best of the three by far. Two pools, ginormous suites with two king beds, mini kitchen and sofa bed plus a table for 4 and a balcony. Nice! I... More

When housekeeping delivered towels the first day, a dress was stolen right off a hanger while we were at the pool. Management never called to defuse or resolve the situation. No one has ever called!!!

I rarely write reviews, but this place was such a dump that I figured if I could save someone else the kind of stay we had, it would be worth my time. To start, the place is old and in desperate need of maintenance/updating. Supposed 'bay view' suite that we paid for had a view in the direction of the... More

And that's about it. This is a great place if you want to drink in a hotel room and then go out on the town - that's just what we did. It's right out on the beach and all the popular spots are a short can ride away. Definitely not a spot if you're trying to have a relaxing family... More

I have NEVER had as horrible of an experience as I had with a hotel before. We get to check in on Friday night (5/29), and find that our A/C is blowing hot air. We call the front desk and they tell us to give it 20 min to cool down. 40 min pass and the room still hasn't cooled... More

We were originally staying at the Ambassador Inn and came over to The Tidelands to check out the pool they offer to Ambassador guests and ended up staying here instead. We were not pleased with the first hotel and the staff at Tidelands were more than helpful to get us in a room by the end of the night when... More
