It was great in ocean city Maryland. Hotel couldn't have been better. Perfect in location and room. Hotel staff were amazing. All restaurants were good. Weather was sunny and beach area always clean. Over all would recommend this hotel and place to visit on your next vacation.

We have stayed at The Lankford for the last seven years. The location, the staff, the breakfast....it's all great. We stay in an efficiency with a fully stocked kitchen! It is very convenient. There is even a bike rental company every morning right outside the hotel!

We recently spent two (week)nights at the Lankford Hotel. In short, 90% of the cost for this hotel is the location. The beach is literally at the front door. It was close to the best part of the boardwalk, and only a 5 minute drive from other main attractions & restaurants, such as Seacrets and Hoopers. The room itself felt... More

Stayed at the Lodge for 3 nites (June 26-29) and it was impressive. Very well maintained and the room was perfect esp with a view of the ocean. Everything is close by and easy to drive. I think the only issue I have was the shower....the water temp was hard to formulate cause it just switches from luke warm to... More

We loved it here. As long as you don't mind the compact rooms, this hotel has everything you could want. Friendly, attentive service and a built-in cafe make for convenient amenities. The outdoor pool area is also spacious and very well kept. By far the best feature is the location - you're just a few steps from the boardwalk and... More

What a beautiful historical property!!! This gem of a Hotel has so much charm and allure. I would have been real upset to stay at a Hilton or Marriott after seeing this. We had a great experience from the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out. The front desk staff and other hotel workers were so friendly... More

Our room was clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. A great place for an older couple or young family. A great family atmosphere. The location is awesome - close enough to downtown without being in the middle of it. Many restaurants within walking or biking distance.

I chose this hotel based on the excellent reviews and my curiosity after seeing it featured on Hotel Impossible. My sister and I stayed for two nights in an oceanfront room (203 I believe). We enjoyed our stay, the hotel itself has a certain historical charm which I appreciate. Our room was tiny but very clean and the beds and... More

Stay was very relaxing, the people were very helpful and flexible to our adding a days stay. My wife and I will surely stay at this hotel again when we 're turn. Rooms were nice and the view of the oven was great.
