First time in Ocean City for me. Went down to meet my sister's family for one night. The room was over priced. The staff was nice enough to let us park even though we were early on Thursday in order to spend time with the neices and nephew. My other sister and I did not check into the room until... More

When I made reservations for this hotel, I told the person I spoke with that I had trouble sleeping, and asked for a quiet room. He put me in a room that he said he was sure would be good, and if there were any troubles, I could tell the front desk and they would help me. He put me... More

We didn't book a room in advance, but thanks to a young girl at the front desk she was able to find us a room for 5 days, which was great. The rooms were clean and the service was more than adequate. All the employees were very knowledgeable about the area. Even the lifeguard was happy to direct us to... More

I was able to book a room with a day notice.... Paid $169 for 2nd floor room across the street from front desk. Quiet and clean. Adequate for 1 night stay. We couldn't beat location. I would consider going back since it was clean, quiet, close to beach and able to find a parking spot pretty easily. We hung out... More

We took a chance on this hotel based on reviews, and we were not sorry. Two families met at the hotel and stayed for four nights. The staff made sure we were in rooms next to each other. Each room was large enough for two queen beds, a mini-fridge, table/chairs, and closet. We had 4 people in each room (2... More

This is an old fashioned motel. The things that bothered us the most were the crooked toilet that made it feel like you were falling off of it anytime you sat down and the windows and/or door were so thin you heard every trash truck every morning, and they drove by every morning. Room 600

We have been staying here for over ten years !! The front desk and staff employees couldn't be nicer. It is our "Go TO" place in Ocean City in Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring !! The rooms have always been nice and clean. You could not ask for a better location. You are in walking distance to the beach, boardwalk,... More

I just stayed at the Impala Island Inn 7/11 thru 7/13. It's a typical shore-type motel, a bit dated and smells somewhat musty. My biggest concern was with the Life-guard on duty!! I was at the pool on Saturday afternoon from 12:30 till 5:00 (closing time). Many people had young children at the pool area. The Life-guard was constantly on... More
