My teenage daughter and I came to OC for a last hoorah at the beach before school. We had no reservations for Saturday night. After calling hotels down Coastal from Rehobeth to OC, everything was 200+. The Fenwick was under 200 leaving us extremely skeptical. We were thrilled to find a very clean room with towels and sheets that smelled... More

Considering every place that I wanted for a last minute family vacation in an ocean city condo was booked, this was a nice place to "settle". Very nice for a motel. Roomy, clean, quiet, comfortable beds, one block walk to beach. Although there was no stove, the kitchenette was useful since we know how to cook meals in the microwave... More

This is the first time we stayed in a motel at the beach and my sister had a house nearby so I didn't need to rely on the small "kitchen" area for anything more then toast and coffee. I found the motel very nice the room was spacious enough for the three of us and we enjoyed the balcony every... More

It is an older building but it looks as though they just remodeled it, everything was great and clean. We got there early and couldn't check in right away but they let us park there and use the bathroom at the pool to change and we walked across the street and to the beach not a far walk at all....

My daughters and I have stayed here about 7-8 times since they were youngsters. The staff is always friendly and courteous. Rooms are clean, pool is nice, only 1 block to the beach. Looks like everything got a fresh coat of paint this year. We'll definitely be back.

Good things.....comfortable bed, soft towels, cold air, hot water. Bad things, lied they had internet in your room, ice COSTS a quarter....seriously. Too bright in the room at bedtime, small old TV with very minimal stations. Little bags of shampoo, very dirty floor. I spilled something and when I cleaned it up the paper towel was black. Gross.no irons. Great... More

Yes, this is an older motel. Yes, it needs a few update. YES, it is well worth staying here! Our first impression of the motel was the staff - we arrived quite late at night (thank you, wonky GPS), but the man working at the front desk waited around another 20 minutes after his shift ended make sure we found...

I stayed in the Fenwick Islander Motel for the second time, and again I was not disappointed. The motel is an older structure, but well maintained and in good condition. The room was clean and was equipped with a microwave, fridge and a kitchen sink. The backward rooms (with a small balcony) are very quiet. Beach access is just across... More

This was a great little motel located far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Ocean City but still close enough to enjoy the fun. The boardwalk was only a 15 min car ride away, but I much prefer the beaches of fenwick island. The motel was very clean and quaint. Each room has a private balcony; I paid... More

You have to pay for ice!!! Need I say more? I have been in expensive places and very inexpensive places... I must say this is a first fir me. Ice machine is on bottom floor only if your on 3 rd floor running up and down can get old quick. Clean but very dated. Don't bring a lot of luggage... More
