Our family (two adults, two young teen boys) spent August 9-12 at Ocean City, and this was our first stay at the Wild Dunes, but probably not the last! It was a great set up for us; the guys took over the queen pull out in the living area, and the adults enjoyed the privacy of our own space! There... More

This past August was our 3rd time staying here. Never had an issue and we love the location. We have a 6 year old and a 3 year old. Although the 1 bedroom isn't for everyone it works well for us for the time being. We will see you in 2015!!!!

Even though it looks like an old motel from the outside, the rooms are updated, nice comfy king bed, pullout was OK for the kids, kid size air bed for our youngest one. Small bathroom but comfy towels and great shower. Kitchenette, handy refrigerator and basic dishes for breakfast. Next door rollercoaster and other rides are very loud in the... More

We were there for the holiday weekend with our teenagers. We don't spend much time in the room because there is always so much to do between the beach, pools and boardwalk. The ocean was the calmest we had seen in many years and the weather was not the best but the hotel and the boardwalk provided plenty of fun... More

Thank you for your review from your stay in July. Ocean City puts on wonderful fireworks and we are delighted you were able to enjoy them. And we certainly agree, the new bridge is a great addition to our island. We hope to see you again. More

Pros- Location right on entrance to boardwalk, easy to get to beach. Good kitchenette. 2 rooms separated by a door. Staff was nice. Cons- We were so close to the amusement park, I felt like our hotel room was inside the amusement park at night. In August, the rides didn't shut down til 11:30 PM so kids couldn't fall asleep....

I like this hotel, pure and simple. It is clean and in a nice location. Prices are reasonable especially if you pay attn to their special offers where you get free breakfast vouchers at their restaurant, the Bloomin Tulip. We have stayed here many times. There is a sofa bed in the front room and a king size bed in... More

Don't get me wrong, we've been to this place for 3 straight years. My 4 year old twin daughters LOVE staying here for the location, convenience and overall enjoyment each time we are here. Why only 4 stars you ask? Each year their WiFi gets weaker and weaker. However, they advertise Free WiFi everywhere. Although it's free, it doesn't work.... More
