When we got there, was told our reservation was the week before...shocked!!! I called and changed it to a later week and the person who took the reservation never changed it!!! We had to take whatever we could get for their mistake!!! VERY rude staff ( not housekeeping...they actually felt sorry for us!) An office person named Ricky (female) was... More

For the price the room is decent size, two old beds, dated room. Telephone doesn't work even to call office. We stayed with our whole family, I went to the office to request a crib. The woman took a very nasty tone with me so I'm not sure why people claim to get good service here. Lots of stairs, small... More

You can find a full list of the amenities we do offer here: http://ocrideau.com/ocean-city-md-hotel-rooms-amenities/ Your comments regarding additional amenities will be considered going forward.

I travel often with my work so when it comes to hotels/motels I would say I have some experience with how they compare. This being said... Online the photos look great! When I arrived the room was dated; the mattresses were terrible -all I could feel were the springs; the phone did not work - even to call the front... More

Jax17851, I want to personally thank you for staying at the Rideau and also let you know that we do appreciate your comment about our staff being "wonderful." It's certainly the busiest time of the year for us and unfortunately it's extremely difficult to ensure that every single one of our guests is completely happy with their stay. However, I... More

Rideau was very easy to locate in OC-MD. Very friendly staff, clean rooms and hallways. Nice pool. Easy access to the boardwalk. We were there when it was very hot and humid, the AC was excellent and our bed was comfortable. Large,easily accessible parking lot. We enjoyed our stay at Rideau. Would stay there again.

We stayed here for two nights which is nice because most oc motels have a three night min. The room was large and clean! I wish we would have got a boardwalk room but we didnt. With that being said we could hear a lot of the cars going by. Also they could use some new bigger tv's.

Stayed here sort of on a whim for Springfest weekend in OC. I must say, I enjoyed it. I've read some of the negative reviews on here, and if you are uber picky this may not be the place for you. My room was clean and good sized and overlooked the boardwalk. Its a great spot to sit on the... More

We have stayed here several times. While the hotel and rooms could really use some updating,it is usually generally pretty clean. This is the first trip that we had a issue with cleanliness as the sheets and pillowcases were stained with an unknown substance. We were fairly certain the sheets had been laundered and there were extra sheets and pillowcases... More

No elevators, which was okay for walking up 2 flight of steps with just a small suitcase. Hotel has great potentials if they would only dedicate time and invest some $$ on it. As long as you bring your own sleeping bag or an anti-bed-bug sheet to put on top of the bed, and plenty of Lysol you should be... More
