I arrived today and had some work to do on my computer and guess what no wi-fi. I asked for help earlier in the day the lady at the counter was more interested in her Skype chat. I asked again at night and they didn't know what was going. My work couldn't get done and no attempt to help me!

I got a flat tire while in Ocean City on the last day of my stay at the Princess Bayside (I'll review that hotel too) and so I attempted to stay here so I could get my tire fixed in the morning and avoid driving home on a donut. This place was the only place within one hour of Ocean... More

My boyfriend and I booked a room on a whim the night of our stay without reading any reviews, which was honestly my mistake. When we got the the door there were discarded kid's clothes, a crushed pack of cigarettes and an alarmingly large ball of hair in front of it. We peeked in the window and saw that there... More

No door security. The place should not... More

Since this was a last minute mini vacation, the room rates were a deciding factor for us. Price was ok and honestly the room was fine. The room smelled a little musty but we had prepared for this and brought our Lysol and diffuser. The pillows and box springs were gross but again we knew this was a possibility and... More

My family and I decided on a whim to go down to ocean city, we found the islander to be the cheapest on priceline, so we booked it, figuring it couldn't be that bad. First the good: Location is awesome, across the road from Phillips, close to fishtales, and the salty dog is only a few blocks away. The pool... More

Fantastic stay! This was a last minute booking for a getaway weekend that we randomly booked but got super lucky! The place was great, very clean and comfortable and at a great location in Ocean City. The owners were very sweet and gave us lots of recommendations for places to dine. Would book again without any hesitations. Highly recommend!

I paid for a room for myself and my sons. The first day it wasn't too bad. The next day the cable didn't work all day. Two different guys tried fixing it to no avail. I had to ask for towels and for the room to be cleaned. I got the towels but no cleaning up. I juSt wanted the... More
