Budget hotel with good room and facilities for the price, right near the beach. Excellent review is down to helpfulness of staff. We arrived with no booking, They accommodated us and found us a place for two subsequent nights (they were fully booked for those subsequent nights). Desk staff were friendly and warm. We didn't experience any noise or other... More

Very Unfriendly Staff! From the desk clerks to the room cleaners, they all seemed to be unhappy to work there. The room was very plain, outdated, and worn. The carpet was dirty and loose. The mattresses sagged and the box-spring liner hung under the bed. There were no pictures or decorations in the room. The sofa and bedspreads were soiled.... More

This hotel was priced lower than similar hotel in the street. The feedback was not bad as well. The room is big with two queens and a sofa bed. It is good for family of 4. Microwave and fridge are definitely a plus. The big problem for me was the noises, from old air condition, street noise, as well as... More

1) This is NOT a family friendly place. Groups of teens - younger 20 year olds descended on this hotel, unloading cases upon cases of beer and funnels and carrying into hotel. It turned into party central. People coming back at 2:30 am and screaming, not fun. 2) Wifi is HORRIBLE, so very slow. 3) The pool is tiny for... More

Dear guest. It is difficult to screen every guest in our hotel. If guest pays the rate, they are entitled to stay with us. Just like every resort town, we also have to deal with those that simply want to party. We are a family-friendly hotel, and we want our younger guests to have fun as well. When a guest... More

The staff was very friendly, it was quiet at night and there is free coffee. The location is good if you like the bars/restaurants around Fager's Island area. Unfortunately, our sheets had a stain and weren't changed after 2 nights, which was relatively gross. The towels were uncomfortable. Also, there were multiple strands of someone else's hair on the blanket.... More

I have to admit that for a last minute low cost hotel the week before the kids went back to school I was not expecting much. I was shocked at how nice and spacious the room was. It was the 4 of us and we were comfortable. It was clean and everyone was so nice. They have 2 buildings and... More

We are a family-owned and operated hotel, and while we appreciate all of our guests, we expect all guests to respect the comfort and privacy of all other guests.

I would not stay at this hotel again. I worked in a hotel for 3 years so I am usually pretty understanding but I could not justify paying 300+ a night for a place like this EVER again, even in Ocean City peak season. Cleanliness is everything to me. I don't know if it was because we were in the... More

Your review was extremely disappointing. I am very sorry for your poor experience with us. You did stay in our West Building and while it is a few years older than our East (or Main) Building, we do try and keep it very clean. Not sure what you experienced with "black stuff" on your feet? I check a lot of... More

Another great golf vacation, Sea Bay staff makes you feel welcome & go out of their way to assist your every needs. We have been staying here for past several years & will be returning again next year. While the whole staff is great, Aubrey (who does our golf package) & Shelley (who manages the front desk) continue to exceed... More

This is the third year in a row we have stayed at the Sea Bay. Once again we were very pleased and we had a great week. Except for one day of rain, we totally enjoyed ourselves. The rooms are clean and spacious as well as the bathrooms. The location is perfect for us, it's right in the middle of... More

Every year we spend time in Ocean City, MD to be with our grandchildren while they are on vacation. This year we chose Sea Bay Hotel because it was located close to where they stay with their Mom & Dad. My husband & I both thought the location was ideal for many reasons! The hotel itself was really nice...not top... More
