For many years hotels such as the Lankford lined the boards in OC, full of genteel ladies down for the summer and their children who anxiously awaited the weekend arrival of the men folk from Baltimore and D.C. Alas those days are gone but the Lankford "maintains standards" and gives a taste of that time. The rooms are small but... More

I can't say enough about how great this place is. What a great value for being on the Boardwalk, with adequate self-parking to the rear. Staff was friendly and helpful. The entire 90-year-old hotel was spotless and smelled only of Thrasher's fries nearby. Reminded me of my grandma's house but by the ocean. Things that might bother some people (not... More

Lankford is on a section of the boardwalk that has many people walking by or sitting about. However, our room on the second floor was quiet. The upper porch off the second floor was very nice. It was breezy and a food place to view the beach and boardwalk from while sitting in the shade. Staff was very friendly and... More

We have stayed at the Lankford Hotel I think for about the past 10 to 12 years. We stay in the Ground Floor South and my parents and sister stay in the Ground Floor North every September. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We can not say enough about Mary, one of the owners. She is very helpful. We... More
