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

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

I almost canceled after reading some of these reviews but I didn't and Im glad I didn't. Yes its an older place but the location is awesome the rooms are huge. The only down fall to this place is there is no elevator so we had to walk up 5 flights of stairs which wouldn't have been a big deal... More

The south end of the building is extremely loud at night due to a bar on the first floor on the boardwalk. The whole motel is in need of renovations. The hall ways are dark, dingy, and extremely hot. There is no elevator, so if you're on the 3rd floor, you have to carry luggage up and down 3 floors... More

The rooms look like a total dive!!! Everything smells, the hallway, the rooms. Shower like a sprinkler. No iron. Ice cost 25 cents. No closets. Need to close it down and rebuild. The only thing decent is the pool!!!
