I stayed for two nights in late August. I picked it because it was the least-expensive option on the online-search site I used. (It was either Trivago or Priceline.) The single-biggest advantage of staying at the Admiral is that it is just a block away from the Ocean City Boardwalk and the ocean, so you don't have to drive to... More

This place sucks!!!! The absolute worst9. Our room was infested with bed bugs and they wouldn't even give me the money back for the days I had left to stay. Mold everywhere. They should condemn this place

Wasn't a bad stay at all. The workers were all very nice and we didn't have too many issues. Me and my friend decided to take a last minute trip to the beach and for 2 nights it was a good pick for the price. Had a few ants in the room but wasn't much of an issue. Easy access... More

First, this is not a five star hotel by any means, there are many improvements that need to be made. That being said, for the price and the location this is an ok hotel. I went to ocean city with my fiancé and 3 year old son. The room could have been cleaner, we did notice a few ants (as... More

My friend and I were looking for an inexpensive stay and this was certainly it. Thankfully I brought my own sheets and quilt because although clean, we didn't want to sleep on them. The room was falling apart. Mold, rust, and rotting wood. The staff was very friendly and always welcoming. However we could really only use one work to... More

My girlfriend and I went there for 4 days. Read all the reviews and they all were right. Ants in the bathroom and in the cooler some how. Bathroom sink was out in the room, no dressers to put your stuff in very old tv that barley works. The toilet seat was beyond disgusting it had paint chips and looked... More

Last min trip to beach due to work schedule being changed... We booked the hotel online, drove down only to find out that the website changed the dates! I didn't even bother to double check before leaving because I knew what I was searching and when I wanted to go.... But the hotel had room and accommodated us. I was... More

The admiral hotel is an older hotel in Ocean City at 9th and Baltimore. We always stay in the larger apartments so my review is of the 2 bedroom apartment. You pay about 1700 for the 7 days. This gets you a two bedroom apartment with a pull out couch and a drop down bed. You have plenty of room... More

They right away said I was receiving my refund and it's been over a week and I called every day and they have lied and won't even give me the... More
