I was reluctant to stay after reading other reviews, but have been vacationing in Ocean City, MD for over 30 years. I've stayed at some of the best places when I used to have a ton of "disposable" money, but also stayed in some rather questionable establishments, where they stole my clothes, jewelry, towels, camera, etc. Let me start by...

My friends stayed at this hotel and my BF and I stayed at another because I had read bad reviews on this hotel. Well so glad we didn't stay because when we visited our friends I didn't even want to sit on the sofas. The carpets looks like they have not been cleaned in years. The smell of mildew is... More

We are cheap and don't usually like to spend alot on a room, but the mold and bug infestation wasn't in the brochure. We did save at least $500-$1000 (4th of July Weekend) So I'll give 2 stars for location, price & the air conditioner worked. !!!!!!!!!BE SURE TO BRING YOUR OWN BEDDING!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do you get blood on the box spring of the bed?Why did the fire alarm have wires and no covering hanging from the ceiling?Who has shower head that spurts... More

We stayed at this hotel with a bunch of family for a family reunion. The price was the lowest we could find without staying too far outside of Ocean City. The room was ridiculously small and dirty. The bathroom looked like it hadn't had a really good cleaning in years! There was some kind of rust or dirt across the... More

The rooms are terrible, small and disgusting. The bathroom, horrible. The shower is so small you can't turn around, it's 2X2...no ventilation in there and the toilet moved everytime you sat down. There were ants and when we asked the house keeper for spray she said "ugh, there's always something going on in this room!" We even asked her for... More

I stayed in this hotel in 2012 and thought it wasn't terrible. Remarkably, I've managed to hit it again on senior week. (think masses of teens, noise, tom-foolery, drama, drunkenness, etc) In addition, this week featured an air-show and father's day. *read: super-extra crowded and obnoxious people. The hotel was $125/night (including taxes), no longer a "deal." The linens have... More

My daughter found this place for she and a friend online and the price was right, so she booked the room. I was paying for the room as a birthday gift, so my job was to drive them there, pay for the room and leave. I know that it is senior week and things are hectic but I had a... More

First room had ants all over the mini fridge, blood on sheets, and an inscent burnt on the sink (obviously showing the room was not cleaned) we complained and moved us to a new room. The second room had hair and paper in the tub drain, as well as mud on the bathroom floor. And to top it all off... More

I do not normally write reviews but felt like I needed to. We arrived and the front desk said they weren't expecting us. (They said they did not get the notification from the site even though we booked it a month ago?) He said that b/c of that, we might want to make sure our room looks ok b/c it... More
