The stay was great. The indoor pool is very great, but the hot air inside needs to be vented outdoors. The green on the put golf needs to be replaced. All the help working here is very nice and friendly.

We've stayed here a few times. Can't wait to see the new water park & golf putt course next year. Diner is awesome. Brought us out hot fresh little doughnuts @ breakfast for free. Diner just needs to be open until at least 8 pm. Shuttle{s} are nice perk. Drivers are very friendly & funny. We've stayed at a lot... More

My family and I stayed two nights at FSK in OCMD. We've never stayed here but it's very close to where we keep our boat at Sunset Marina also in OCMD. This is a very family orientated resort, clean rooms, A/C worked well. It's an older property but very well maintained. The rates are very reasonable for what you get.... More

We just stayed 2 nights, and we had a great time. The rooms were spacious and clean. The amenities on the grounds are perfect for small children. Our 6 year old had a blast playing in the different pools and at the playground. The staff members were all kind, friendly and helpful. We loved the free shuttle service that takes... More

I had the opportunity to speak with this guest and received great constructive feedback. We are so pleased that we will have the opportunity to hit our marks with this family when they return in August. I believe that we have a cracker jack staff but we are not perfect and we can use these moments as teachable ones for... More

On our way to ocean city we came across this hotel. We have small children ranging from 2-7. This hotel is definitely great for children. There are so many free amenities that are included that you can enjoy by wearing your wristband. They have indoor and outdoor pools, volleyball, miniature golf, and even movie nights. I could say the ONLY... More

We do have security and we understand how important a good nights sleep is for our guests. Please contact the front desk when with us or anywhere you travel as we will do our best to rectify... More

We just stayed at FSK for our second time and my kids have decided that they want to come back here every year. This is an excellent hotel for families. There is so much to do. Even if the weather is bad, there is an indoor pool. My son loves the free movie rentals as well as the family movies... More
