We were excited to come back to the Lankford Hotel to see all the changes that have been made. We have stayed here several times for the location and price but this time was different. The changes have made staying at the Lankford Hotel much more relaxing. The environment and the staff and the rooms all deserve an A+. Keep... More

I am unbelievably pleased that my husband and I were able to stay here. The Lankford is an older building (with older fixtures and signs of wear, but nothing unsafe, dirty, or unsightly) and the rooms are on the small side, but I don't go to the beach to camp out in my room, you know? First, a few caveats... More

This is a first-rate lodging experience for those who value quiet, competence and consistency. I've stayed at the Lankford occasionally since the mid-1970s and never have been disappointed. This is not the place, however, for anyone who wants modern, steel-and-glass luxury. (There is no business center.) It is comfortable, old-style accommodation reminiscent of the hotel in the movie "Key Largo".... More

We recently stayed for one night at the Lankford. It's a pretty, older hotel and the rooms are basic but fine - no complaints, as the hotel owners made it clear when I booked that the rooms are basic. We had a seafront room, which had an amazing view. The only downside were the noisy A/C units on the exterior... More

The Lankford is unique in that it has been owned by the same family for years! The family is very much present in the day-to-day operations, and are extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed in The Lodge, which was half a block from the main hotel, across a small street. the room was a newly decorated 2 bedroom unit, beds... More

This lovely iconic hotel on the Boardwalk in OC is a fun and unique break from "big box" hotels for a first rate beach vacation. Stayed for a week end of August, with 2 teens and a 20 something kid. Had a blast! We stayed in The Raven, oceanfront, and it was great! Pros: price is right at weekly rate,... More

Had a small one bedroom for a long weekend stay and was perfect for what we needed. Can't beat the price and the bedroom was clean, AC worked great and had a small fridge. TV was small but you shouldn't be watching TV anyways. Bagels and coffee in the morning for breakfast was a nice touch. Best part was that... More

Overall, we enjoyed our experience here. Based on other reviews we knew to expect outdated fixtures and small rooms. However, some of the less permanent items such as toilet paper and pillows could use some improvement. That being said, the location, friendly staff, and value make this hotel worth staying at.

This place is lovely and only a short walk (10 feet tops) to the boardwalk and to many area restaurants. The hotel is older and has its quirks (nothing bad just like any other old home) but that is more then made up for with the helpful staff and location. You can do no better.

Well, I was nicely welcomed by an extremely friendly front desk staff to a family place that resembles a lot one those old and cozy beach houses. You see people sharing couches on the lobby, talking on commune balconies and all that right in front of Ocean City’s boardwalk. I liked the ambiance a lot and the Internet speed was... More
