We rented the Penthouse last weekend (Memorial Day) for a three-family celebration of my Mother's 80th birthday. While the hotel remains an historic gem, the condition of this particular 5-bedroom suite was disappointing, to say the least. We walked in to find large chunks of paint literally hanging from the ceiling of the main living area, likely because the air... More

My sister and I attended a Murder Mystery Weekend at the Hotel last weekend. We had a spectacular time. The hotel has retained it's old world charm! 90 years old and still fabulous! When you enter the lobby, you get the feel of what elegance was years ago, and sorely missed today. The hotel exudes fashion, elegance and grace. The... More

My husband and I have spent our Easter weekend at The Flanders for the last 4 years. We have stayed in the Ocean Front room and Deluxe Suite. I found the Ocean front room to be very spacious.

ok, 90 years ago, I am confident that this piece of Ocean City architecture was something to behold. Of course, then, they didn't have some broken down amusement park, complete with roller coaster, obstructing the northern views. Of course, then, they didn't slap in some kitchen counter to provide guests the ability to never leave their rooms and experience the... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Unfortunately the amusement park is not as pretty in the off season.

Just checked in for Easter/Anniversary weekend. Booked ocean front room. We can see the ocean ????? Over the building that obstructs about 90 % of our view! Front desk says higher floors are all booked and didn't offer a discount. We will see how the rest of the weekend goes, but not off to a good start!

We love our stays at the Flanders and this visit stayed in one of the promenade rooms, which is just like being at home. It has all the special things we love in our home in PA, just in OC NJ!

Stayed one cold, windy night in Feb 2015 and paid a little too much for off-season, but I enjoyed the stay. Staff was very friendly and accommodating and gave us a choice of rooms to view to decide. We actually opted for a side view 1 bedroom deluxe suite, which had a fully equipped kitchen, nice living and dining area,... More
