So I booked this resort not expecting much since there were some mixed reviews. No this is not a posh hotel if that is what you are looking for. Yes it is clean which is very important and they have temperpedic mattresses. This is a great place to bring your family and have just a wonderful time. I went with... More

It will be our 2nd time visiting the FSK resort. Just to say that my boys ages 4 and 8 can not wait for their next visit coming up next month. For my kids to choose to come back to a place it must be something positive and memorable for them. Yes this may not be a luxury hotel but... More

We stayed at the Francis Scott Key Family Resort with my daughters basketball team for a weekend tournament. This place was wonderful. The kids enjoyed the pools and basketball court as well as the mini-golf and pond. The parents loved the picnic pavillion and the overall family feel of the place. Any questions or problems were addressed immediately by the... More

Francis Scott Key is by far above the rest of the hotel for a family stay. They offer many amenities for all types of weather and strive to make sure everyone is happy. My favorite things are the pool areas ( 3 of them - indoor, out door and a spray pirate ship), movie nights, and the outstanding courtesy of... More

This is my family's second visit to FSK and it was just as we remembered. We're a family of 4 to include a tween girl and toddler boy, and I must say there was something for them both to do at all times. My toddler particularly loved the Spray-ground while my tween loved the indoor Caribbean pool! They were able... More

Our first stay here and I must say I have never stayed at any place like FSK. The staff and management here really get how to give their guest families the opportunity to have a good time. We appreciated the cleanliness throughout, the shuttle to the boardwalk, the pools, the spray park, the poolside bars, the nightly movies for the... More

This was our 6 th summer at FSK and it keeps getting better. My family loves it and we are never disappointed. From the indoor Caribbean themed pool to the spray ground and outdoor pool to the mini golf and free shuttle and activities there's so much to do. My 6 and 4.5 year old love it. The resort is...

This place is great if you have a family with young kids. There was plenty to keep them busy and when it rained that enjoyed the indoor water park. We love the family movie and popcorn they do every night as well. The rooms are very clean an comfortable. The shuttle service is an easy way to get to the... More

We really enjoyed FSK hotel on our recent trip with three kids 5 and younger. This is definitely not a luxury place, the buildings are old. But it was clean, spacious enough, and the beds were comfortable. It is a huge bummer that there are not separate bedrooms in the room so when the little ones go to sleep everyone... More

Thank you for your honest comments. We are an older property but we are and continue to invest and grow. We just completed a major upgrade with our WIFI and we have had very little notifications of issues. We have noticed that you may need to agree each time after the splash page or you may loose the connection. We... More

My grandson had a baseball tournament at Ocean City and almost all of the team stayed at the Francis Scott Key Family Resort. It was fantastic! When not at the tournament, there were several activities for the kids. Plus there are multiple picnic tables where we could all gather and eat. We took the shuttle to the boardwalk/beach area. It...
