Went there with my friends for the vacation. It was the best holiday ever. The price was very reasonable. All the employers were super friendly. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The beach was close. It was everything we hoped for. Highly recommended. Will stay there everytime we visit ocean city.

This is the second time I stayed at this property in 3 years; the owners are doing a nice job with continuous improvements! Both trips, I stayed in a canal-front room. Gorgeous sunsets! New flooring in the units, a well-working mini-frig and separate microwave, clean bedding and puffy towels are nice. Rooms,hallways, and parking lots are extremely clean, and constantly... More

This motel has been recently remodeled and updated! We stayed in it before prior to remodeling when it was the "70's decor" referred to in other reviews. Much nicer now! One block from the ocean, and it has a friendly staff and very clean rooms! We brought our grandson with us and he spent a lot of time in the... More

My husband and I have been coming to the Fenwick Islander for many years and recently have been coming for my birthday end of June. The hotel is a older hotel but kept clean and recently added more upgrades like big screen TV and new bedding. The best part is the canal view which you can see great sunsets or... More

Good place for the price you pay. Within walking distance to the beach and shops. Staff was friendly and helpful. The pool is a plus because it is open all night. Staff promptly cleaned rooms while we were out. Nice to return to a clean room!

We came to Fenwick Islander as an overnite beach stay from Dover International Speedway. We stayed in room 201, street side. Would not recommend it. Everyone can see into your room and the blinds are below standard. Maybe they should install shears but it may get in the way of the 'residential' screen door to the deck which was wet... More

Rooms are always neat and clean, friendly staff as well.This is a family owned hotel , nothing fancy, just clean rooms. This hotel is 2 blocks from the ocean, close to shopping and restaurants.. About 20 min... More

My husband and myself have been to the Fenwick Islander twice this year. The Islander is a small motel made up of "no frills" rooms. It's draw is the simplicity, the cleanliness, the canal view, proximity to the beach, the eateries and shopping nearby, the price and of course the staff. This week we needed to get away for a...
