Where do I even begin.... We had a late check-in and during the process the front desk guy looks at my husband then asks if he's my husband because he's all about family and not any nonsense. Found that odd. Then we go to our, what should have been, awesome room on the first floor where we just open our... More

I stayed here with my family. The first room they showed us was a nightmare. The walls were dirty and the carpet was dirty. The second room was a little better until we moved the cover. After we moved the cover the sheets had brown stains on them. They were beyond dirty. I requested a refund and the front desk... More

I just had my first terrible experience in Ocean City, Md. Instead of a nice, relaxing night, we had to listen to a wedding party staged on the common area patio, just outside our room. The music was blaring and the guests were out of control drunks, load and unruly. The manager did nothing to help. I can understand having... More

The Seabonay was able to accommodate us last minute which was a life saver. The whole place needs a new coat of paint and updated. Pretty sure the wallpaper is older than I am. It's right on the beach which is wonderful and the boardwalk is like four paces to the right. Pretty pricey for how old it is and... More

Booked this Motel based upon availability at the last minute. Pictures look okay, but the motel condition is very poor. Rooms are big, two queen beds. Bathroom renovated, and is actually the best part of the room:) Privacy is an issue. The privacy curtains do not close all the way. It gets very noisy when the camping ground downstairs has... More

Pros: on the beach, balcony, at the end of the boardwalk Cons: "free" wifi, but you keep getting kicked off, fresh fruit & coffee is in the office daily, but I wouldn't touch it. Dirty/dated & no maid service. We had to clean the room ourselves!! And why was there hair on everything?

The motel was overpriced. The rooms were filthy and ran down. There was broken glass outside the rooms on the lower level facing the beach and was not cleaned up for the night we stayed. The bed was filthy and hard as a rock. The TV had bad reception and quality. The AC was loud and kept me and my... More

I've read some of the reviews on here about this motel, some are a bit harsh and some right on. This is a decent motel in a great location but there are several nuances that you will have to deal with. For starters the parking, one lot is very close the other is across the street, street parking is available... More

oceanfront, close to boardwalk and restaurants. Our room was clean and had new carpeting and bathroom. Had requested early check-in. But wasn't ready till 3. Didn't think that would be a problem, as we arrived on Monday. Pool was clean. I was worried after reading so many bad reviews, but for a great price, it was much better than I... More

The bathroom was completely re done and looked and felt great. I'm super clean and I did not feel grossed out taking a bath there. Very comfortable. I wish I could sleep in the bathroom, but I can't. Because the room was run down. The wall was falling apart (paneling with mold) the fridge was rusted on the outside doors.... More
