We stayed here August 7th-9th. We came down for the beach blast hockey tournament. I am super critical on hotels and cleaniness. I absolutely loved it here. The hotel was super cute. The main sitting area was nice with wifi and tv plus a play area for the kids.We arrived and they offered us early check in. The room was... More

We come out every other year from California to enjoy a week with friends and family. The Lankford is always welcoming, clean, and feels like a home away from home. The staff are courteous and helpful. Location is perfect! Can't wait for 2017!

Our visits here started in my youth and now I bring my little ones cross country to continue the tradition. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Part nostalgia, yes, but also because of the care and service we receive every time we visit the Lankford. Family run for years, their pride in what they do shows. Atmosphere is homey and... More

We enjoyed our experience here so much last year, we could not imagine going back to the Grand Hotel where we had stayed quite a few years prior. Family Management here is truly involved in the day to day activities and they care about their clientele. Everything here is so convenient -- the beach, the pier, eateries and activities --...

Rooms to fit any budget. Right on the boardwalk. Nice continental breakfast. The owner helped us with our luggage. Very clean, well maintained rooms. If you want a hotel pool go some place else. If you need an elevator go some place else. Other then that the Lankford Hotel wants for nothing. This is the only place my family would... More

Be staying at the Lankford for well over 10 years. We always rent one of their larger places and the whole family comes down. The staff and the owners are friendly and they go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. Can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Hi Anita, We are so glad you found us 5 years ago and continue to return. It is because of guests like you that we are still thriving, so thank you for that. And the staff also appreciates the kind words. Hope to see you again next year. More

Have no complaints with the rooms. Old and small but utilitarian. My complaint is the repulsive odor emanating from the cigarette receptacles on the front porch. It is really unbearable. Used to be a nice place to gather and talk on one of the rocking chairs at the end of a long day or while other family member's are shopping.... More

Mike, We certainly appreciate all the years you and your family chose our porch as your meeting place, however, as an Ocean City resident, you certainly understand that we have to cater to the paying guests of our hotel, rather than those who just come sit on the porch. After you voiced your complaint in the e-mail, I did check... More

Just checked in for a glorious Sunday evening. Lovely reception. (LaToya!). Perfect Oceanfront Room. Old world charm lobby, common areas & room. Spotless accomodation. Reasonably priced. 1st trip to OC, MD. & therefore, to Lankford. Most assuredly will not be our last. Thanks.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your feedback and your kind words regarding the hotel and especially LaToya were very nice. It is often hard to find just the right staff to interact with our guests and LaToya has been a wonderful addition to our hotel. While it was your first time with us,... More

We have been vacationing in Ocean City MD for 19 years. Each year we've stayed at a different hotel, condo, etc saying each year that once we find the perfect place we'll stay there every year. A few years ago we found the Lankford and have now stayed there the past 5 years and have no intention of ever staying... More
