My sister booked us a room for my birthday weekend . OH My GOD. This place is HORRIFYING !!!!!! Mold mildew no hot water. For a family owned and operated business one would think you would put a little pride and effort into your income..obviously I give you too much credit .

Your hotel was disgusting! We checked in around 5:00pm and went to room 73. Upon entering the room we were overwhelmed with the smell of mold and mildew! There was no hot water and no washcloths. My 10 year old son actually was physically ill from even being in the room. Your staff was rude and offered nothing in return... More

This is the MOST NASTY, STINKING DIRTY HOTEL I have ever been in! It was mold everywhere! I dont recommend this hotel for a dog let alone people!! All of our belongings smelt of mold and had to be washed immediately. They did not have any wash clothes in the room and there was no microwave and fridge as advertised.... More

Beware, there are bed bugs at this motel. My son, husband and I got over 60 bites each on our arms, hands, and back. The staff tried to accommodate by switching us to 2 more different rooms through our 3 night stay, but all of the rooms we visited had bed bugs. We stayed in a different room each night.... More

No wash cloths, no extra towels, no bath mat. No hot water, no water in the pretty fountain on the website. Comforters don't match each other and clash horridly with the curtains. Pool only open 9AM-9PM. No exhaust fan, counter or shelving in the bathroom. TV is a 1980's, 13-inch model with no remote. Entry mode is an actual key,... More

My friends and I booked a last minute trip to Ocean City and stayed at the Islander Motel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was exactly what I expected, outdated and a little unsanitary. The sheets seemed clean although when they accidentally fell off the bed there were blood stains on the bed. There were always a few... More

I wanted to stay here because it is only one block from Fishtails. The best kept secret in in Ocean City. Good food, friendly staff, great sunsets, and kid friendly. The room was very basic. Clean and a great deal on Groupon. My only complaint was the shower/bath. Water could not be shut off, constant running. When turned on for... More

I will say this as a small tibit as to the type of place this is - we found marijuana on the nightstand that had not been cleaned up from the guests before us! Our friend booked the reservation, which was our first mistake. We show up before the friend and are not allowed to check in. We even offered... More
