You feel like you have gone back to the golden age of road trips when you enter this inn. Rooms are basic and clean. The location is very good and walking distance to restaurants and the beach. Pool is behind a miniature golf course so you will hear music which is played low. Getting across the street may be tough... More

OK, to start i am giving them a 3.5 mostly for room cleanliness and price ($69 a night). It is an old school shore motel that i kinda liked but was just average. The staff were nice and the room was VERY clean which i liked. We were leaving OC on the first sunny day in 3 days and we... More

The Atlantic Coast Inn has been our vacation destination for many years. The location to the beach is a short block, Dunkin Donuts, taffy and popcorn across the street, and great crabs nearby. Perfect for us!! Love this area so much and always feel welcomed upon arrival. Rooms are clean and comfortable and windows for the ocean breeze are a... More

Hubby and I stayed a couple of weeks ago at the Atlantic Coast Inn. This was our third or fourth stay at this Inn. We had the bottom unit in the back corner, nearest Rt 54 and it was super quiet. Large bed, sofa, small table and two chairs, sink, counter, microwave and small refrigerator. Nicely painted, newer carpet, TV,... More

This is a classic family style beach motel. It is clean and comfortable and conveniently located across the street from the beach. Had a room on the first floor with a mini-fridge and sink that was nice as well as a table and seating area. Fine for a beach getaway. Nice folks at the desk.

We used to make the trek from No. VA to the Outer Banks every summer, then we discovered Fenwick Island. It is the next "town" north of Ocean City on the DelMarVa peninsula. Fenwick is a "family" town, and that is one of things we love about it. Atlantic Coast Inn is a little hotel on "the bay side of... More

After reading mainly positive reviews, I decided this may be the right motel choice for my family. Was I ever wrong. I understand that hotels/motel rates would be a tad higher when they are situated close to the beach. But, this motel was more like a Days Inn, Family Inn type of joint, that should have been priced accordingly. (like... More

I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. However, this is the first complaint we've had about the rooms being weathered so, I'm sorry that the room was not up to your expectations. The bed coverings and towels are replaced every year, and the rooms were recently painted, so I don't understand how those were outdated for... More

This is a simple, clean place with great people. Check-in was fast/Check-out faster. All the staff are nice and helpful. If you have kids, it is close to most things that you will go and do. Walking to the beach is easy and just across the road. The water park is walking distance along with Go-Carts and three Mini-Golf Courses.... More
