The hotel is dated including the very small rooms. All was clean. We skipped the breakfast which looked to be nothing special. But its right on the Baordwalk with covered seating in the front and on the second level . Ok for a night or two.

Let me start by saying we were extremely pleased with our stay at Lankford. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in an efficiency in the building next to the main building. We had a balcony which was wonderful! We sat out there a lot. The only downside was it rained and not the entire balcony was undercover,... More

Nothing fancy. Friendly. Right on the Boardwalk Close to everything Once we got there we stayed right on the porch most of the time. Very relaxing atmosphere I wish I could think of more to say without boring everyone half to death but they are making me use 200 letters

The pictures made the place look fabulous. But once there reality hit. The decor looks like it's from the 60s or 70s. The bathroom you couldn't even open the door the whole ways. The front desk people were very helpful and understanding when I left early and thanked us. The only good thing is it about 5 steps to the... More

We visit the Lankford whenever we are in Ocean City MD. Since the 1920s, this hotel has remained in the same family. Modern glitz and glitter can be found elsewhere. The Lankford is quaint and comfortable and peaceful. The family and their staff quickly attend to any needs and respond to any challenges. Housekeeping personnel are friendly and thorough.

What a wonderful find in Ocean City! This was to be my first time in town ( for an obligatory family function) and I must admit that I was truly appalled at the exorbitant hotel pricing in Ocean City. Someone in my party was lucky enough to find this wonderful establishment and we were given a huge discount on the... More

We were referred to the Lankford from another hotel in OC and are very grateful! The staff felt like family and were very helpful - from loaning us an umbrella left behind to telling us the places they like to eat. The rooms were huge for our family and the beds were very comfortable. We all slept great with the... More

We loved the Lankford! Let me start off by saying this is a 100 year old family owned hotel. There is no elevator, no pool, and the showers are small and water pressure can be suspect. However all of those things should be expected in a gem like the Lankford. This beachfront hotel offers so much family charm it's hard... More

We stayed in the Teal room. This was not the room I asked for, but they didn't have any other rooms that fit more then 2 people, which is one down fall for this hotel! But probably the ONLY thing I can say bad about it. They did give me the upgraded room at a discount, due to the mix... More
