We returned to FSK this week (after an average stay in February) and we were blown away at the amenities for our family. The new Shipwreck Cove (outdoor poool area) was designed with families in mind, complete with a small spray area, a bar, hot tub and mini golf course. The pirate sprayground was a huge hit with our toddlers,... More

My family visited fsk resort last summer, as a sort of last minute weekend getaway. I would definitely recommend this place for a family vacation on a budget. The staff was courteous. The rooms were clean. For the age of the hotel, and compared to other places in OC, in the same price range, you definitely get a lot for... More

The staff and management have done it again! They created a beautiful, fun, family friendly amenity, The Shipwreck Cove. It's perfect and I love the dancing waters! Rooms are clean and the decor is constantly updated. The resort is so affordable and the property is well maintained. The staff is friendly as always. It's nice to see the management puts... More

My family and I live about an hour from Ocean City and decided to attend the Air show at the last minute, so we just ended up making it a mini get away. We reserved our room with no issues. We arrived on Friday June 12th and stayed through Sunday the 14th. Check in was awesome!!! Our room was located... More

We have been staying at FSK for years and I knew they were redoing their outdoor pool and mini golf area. We just left there a few days ago and I was really impressed with the new Shipwreck Cove. The outdoor pool is great and the new pool bar and dining options were a welcome treat. I loved that the... More

Service was fantastic from all the friendly staff. Room was clean and comfortable. Anything you needed or reqired about was taken care promptly. Location was great. Not too far from the ocean and boardwalk. The shuttle bus made it very easy to get there and back. Surrounding businesses in walking distance from FSK resort provided you with extras. The 50's...

The team picked FSK, I doubt I ever would have. The whole family resort is a little "hoakie" to me. But the team was there and we made the reservation with 0 expectation. We arrived to friendly people and a clean room. The location was outstanding. All the services and things they do to make your stay easy are well... More

We stayed here for a weekend visit with an 8 year old and an infant. The price of the room was actually cheaper than other hotels we looked at and there are a ton of amenities. The room decor was nice and not as dated as it looked in the pictures. There are a ton of things to do on... More

My son and I stayed here for his 4th Birthday this year in May. We stayed the entire weekend, Friday-Sunday. We lucked up and happened to be in town for a car show so there were plenty of guests with nice antique cars for our viewing pleasures. We stayed in the Ohio Building. I loved the fact that the rooms... More

Thank you! Car show weekend is a great event and we love having so many beautiful cars here to enjoy! We were able to get ShipWreck Cove open for Memorial day but we did not make it for Cruising Car weekend. We appreciate all the kind words and we are working hard to give our guests a memory making experience!... More

We have stayed at the Francis Scott Key Family Resort for 3 years. We get the ranch house that has two bedroom, sleeper sofa, kitchen with full refrigerator, and bathroom. This room works perfectly for us with three grandkids 7, 10, and 13. They have an indoor water park, out door pool, and a splash pirate ship. The 7 and... More

I love when we see our grandparents here with their grandchildren. We are very lucky to be part of several family traditions in which we have three generations staying with us... We are located in a central area that is close to many restaurants, retail and amusements not to mention our shuttle that takes you to the beach and boardwalk!... More
