I've stayed here many times over the years, and the Pavilion has always met my expectations. As far as the location goes, it cannot be beat. The boardwalk is just a block away where all the action is. The rooms are clean but a bit outdated. They've added new flat screens and a nice fridge and countertop area. There's also... More

We had a great stay. It's so close to everything, especially the beach. The property is older, but in a fun and nostalgic way. The rooms have been updated, and our stay was comfortable. The staff are all very friendly, and we plan to be back for years to come.

We've come to accept that an affordable OCNJ experience is going to entail a hotel where you just hold your nose, get in and get out, and bed down for the night. After all, these places make their money in just a few months, so there's little cash for improvements. We got the weekend holiday special for a good price... More

Our hotel room was clean, block off the Boardwalk, good location. All were very friendly, Rooms are basic, had a refrigerator, Wish it had a coffee pot or microwave, they had higher class rooms and apartments. We took weekend special and got a Free Massage with Lucy across the street at Compass Excellent. :-)

My family stayed at this hotel last year before July 4th. The rooms were a little dated, but they were clean. The service was friendly and the hotel is located walking distance to the boardwalk/ beach! There was no free breakfast, but the little restaurant next to the hotel had good food for reasonable prices. We traveled with two adults... More

Prepaid a room for a Sunday night stay in September to attend an OC Pops concert 3 blocks away. Initial impression upon check in was poor--the surly desk clerk was more interested in collecting a mandatory $10 in cash deposit for "the metal room key" than telling me anything about the property or the room. The 3rd floor room was... More

My family and I took a trip to Ocean City for the long holiday weekend. A last minute deal and lack of rooms available took us to the Pavilion. The location was amazing between both amusement piers. Rooms are tight, with two queen beds. Very good service to an average room. Enough room to sleep and get changed but that's... More
