I have been vacationing in Ocean City for 40+ years as a child with the family and now as an adult. I have stayed in a number of locations - some of which no longer exist. Ocean City is very quiet from late fall to mid spring. Factors like noise and traffic may affect your stay based on the season...... More

This hotel was rated a 3 star by Trip Advisor. This hotel is definitely not a 3 star property, it's at most a 2 star. I was anxious to arrive, after reading the description of the Suite, but everything was outdated, including the Jacuzzi, which I did not even want to attempt to use. The two room suite did not...

Group of 8 men shared 4 rooms for an off season golf vacation. We spent 3 nights there found it just right for our needs. The restaurant wasn't open Sun, Mon, Tue evenings so we had to eat elsewhere. Rooms where clean, comfortable and well accommodated. Each room had a balcony with ocean view. Clean cotton bathrobes, two per room... More

So happy to hear that you were able to check in early. Obviously this time of year, things do slow down a bit so typically an early check in is not a problem. It is primarily May through September that the early check in's are harder to accommodate. Despite the negative reviews regarding “not being able to check in until... More

This is a budget hotel located right on the Boardwalk with several ocean facing rooms. The rooms are spacious and adequately furnished. We stayed in a double queen bed room. Beds were clean. Linen was fresh. Room was also equipped with microwave oven, kettle, mini fridge, etc. Comfortable stay at moderate price. Recommended.

We stayed there for one night. The hotel is very clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a great location. They are located right on the boardwalk. My only complaint would be the beds. They were not very comfortable. I would stay here again.

Thank you for your review. I am glad that for the most part, you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry that you found the beds uncomfortable.

Thank you for taking time to share your experience with others. I am glad that there were some features that you found acceptable and even enjoyable.
