I usually go for the cheapest places to stay at the beach because, let's be honest your there for the beach not for the hotel room. With that in mind, this is the worst motel I have ever stayed in. We stayed in room 310. The curtains are stapled together and they have holes in them. There were ants in... More

Ok it's bike week. I'm with a friend so it's just about a place to sleep. So it's adequate. But if I booked this place for my family I would be pissed. The rooms are clean but stained. It doesn't look like any money had been spent for major upgrades in decades. For bike week it's good because it's off... More

The price is cheap, tired, I didn't want to drive the family around looking for deals. A funny anecdote is after getting my key from the front desk, I asked the guy if there is any cheap place to eat, He told me, cheap and good don't go together, little did I know, I just made that very mistake by...

We decided to go on a spontaneous vacation to boot it was over Labor Day weekend. This is the only place that we had luck at and didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for. The motel is probably 70's style, it is not up to date with new furnishings and it still has panel board walls. It... More

My friends and I have been staying here since 2008. I have stayed at the Princess Royale, the Buckingham Hotel, the Fenwick Inn, and various places. I always come back to the Riviera Motel for the price and the location. Yes, booking could be made easier if it was online, but this is an old fashioned hotel. It has been... More

This place is very out dated and dirty. I pulled the sheets down to look for bugs and found long hair on my pillow. When I pulled the blind down in the bathroom it fell off the wall, the good news was-no bugs that I could see. A large sign in the lobby said NO refund for early check out... More

The Rivera Motel is located in Ocean City MD near the Boardwalk. Upon checking into my room I noticed there was a strong smoke smell. The room was very dirty and out of date; there was a baggie with the corner ripped out of it lying in a drawer. The door did not have a second lock on it and... More

Stayed over Labor day weekend, place was 100% full, lots of kids. Price avg $89/night + tax for standard 2-bed room is a bargain in O.C. It is a very old Motel, looks like it's not been updated since the 70's, but is kept relatively clean. Has free Wi-Fi. Rooms are spartan: with old, dark wall paneling like your Dad's... More
