We stayed at the Sea Bay for a 10U softball tournament. This hotel had contracted with the tournament. So they new children would be at the hotel along with their regular clientele. This is clearly a hotel for the 20 something low class party crowd. Drinking and drugs all hours of the day and night. ATF and DEA would have... More

I don't stay in Ocean City hotels much but needed to go there for a few days. I looked at the Trip Advisor reviews for something a little less expensive. I picked the Sea Bay and was glad I did. I was close to where I needed to go, there was plenty of parking and the room was fine. I... More

This hotel was a complete scam. We checked in and within hours the security guards (who were on a complete power trip) showed up with the cops knocking at our door. Of course they gave us no prior warning and shoved us onto the streets. The next morning I went to the hotel and demanded when they came to our... More

What more could you want?! This place is very clean and the staff is very friendly. I have stayed here 2 years in a row and had a good experience both trips. This past trip I arrived prior to check in time and Tanya was nice enough to text when the room was ready! The room included a microwave and... More

Its only 4 floors so its easy to grab the elevator and they even have a cafe attached to the hotel. if you like coffee, there is a Dunkin Donuts and Fractured Prune (great... More

This hotel was awesome. Pretty clean and pretty nice. Good service too. I love it. The view was beyond awesome. I love how they used marble tiles. The bathroom was pretty clean. They served good foods especially breakfast. We ordered " Crab omelette " yummy..Very tasty. I love this place. Excellent.

This place is the WORST place i have ever stayed at. I tried giving no stars. The front desk was rude to start with. The rooms were absolutely disgusting. The smell when you walk in is awful. The bathroom was not stocked with any toiletries, no tissues, and hardly any tp. The tub was stained as well as the shower... More

Maybe I should share some of the blame! The reviews didn't make the hotel seem that bad. Ranked 36 out of a 108. I checked in, signed the form that states something about being kicked out if too loud after a certain time and no refunds. (first red flag). The room felt like a really nice prison cell that I...

Dear TweedleDumb I do want to personally thank you for taking the time to share your comments on Tripadvisor. I also have to apologize for the bad experience you had with us. You stayed in our West Building and the standard king that you stayed in does not have much of a view and it is very small. I think... More

Old hotel. Towels are like sandpaper. Not a decoration on any wall. Somewhat clean. Old pullout couch with rip in fabric. Pullout bed was like sleeping on your head. Needs good overall cleaning with wipe down of bed headboards, back of doors, etc. Pool water was clear but triangular shaped pool was being worked on when we were there. Ice... More

Dear jenjar2, Thank you for staying with us over the 4th. I appreciate your time for making these comments. I can honestly say that most of our rooms should be completely renovated by 2016. I know that did not help you recently, but I would ask that you give us another opportunity in the future. It also sounds like we... More

This is not a luxury hotel - it's definitely in need of some updating. However, it's clean, comfortable, and the price can't be beat for in season in OC - We had two adjoining rooms, both large and comfy - The staff were all friendly and the maids were fabulous! If you have a room in the back building,you have... More

Dear Suz in Conn, Thank you for staying with us in early July and also for your honest comments. This is our 7th season as new owners and while we have made a lot of improvements, I admit we still have a lot to do. But thanks for your patronage and we hope you will consider staying with us again.... More
