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 Based on other reviews we knew to expect outdated fixtures and small rooms.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

We decided to stay here after reading the wonderful reviews on this hotel as we have had it with the pricier and larger hotels on the boardwalk. (The past few years we paid higher room rates for amenities we did not need and then we were frequently awakened in the middle of the night to LOUD fire alarms forcing us... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at The Lankford Hotel. The staff was friendly, the price was right and the location was perfect! The hotel is older, but the room was clean and we just used the room to sleep, so we didn't need anything fancy. The only complaint I have about the room was that the air... More

Pros: The location was perfect as you are directly on the boardwalk and seemingly in the middle of everything. The hotel staff did a great job of cleaning the rooms and was very polite and helpful. Cons: The room and bed was tiny (Lodge Side Room) and my wife and I had a hard time sleeping. The shower head needs... More
