We have been staying at the Fenwick Islander for many years. It's the only place we even think about when vacationing on the eastern shore. They treat you like family and go above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay. We call ahead and make sure we always have the right room on the backside of the... More

Clean and well located but overpriced for what this motel is. I have stayed here twice. The first time we paid for a balcony bay view room but we're not given one. Instead of refunding us the difference the management gave us vouchers for a future stay. Hence my second visit. The second time we come to find out in... More

Stayed there 2 nights. Room on the bay overlooked canal. Very clean. Comfortable king bed. Nice balcony with chairs. Quiet even though it was mostly full. Ask for room on third floor bay side. Staff was excellent. Family owned. Decent price for area. Close to food and shopping,just above Ocean City.

This place is ok for about three nights, nothing more. They give you bare minimum on towels and one light was out when we got there. Also we stayed on the top floor and could barely get a signal for the wifi. The TV worked well and so did the bathroom appliances. The beds were very unstable and if someone... More

Very nice Motel. We stayed here now for the last two years and like it very much. Clean rooms and nice staff. The pool is great, having a late in the year booking. This allows the pool to receive sun and keep the temp of the pool up.One block from the beach is nice as well. Also, they don't allow... More

We liked the location of this motel because we could walk to several restaurants and walk across the highway to the beach. The rooms had a refrigerator, a microwave, a small oven, and burners, but there was little room to store many groceries. There was ice near the lobby, vending machines, and coffee in the lobby. They had a nice,... More

Was very pleased with how accommodating the staff were on a spur of the moment trip as well as how clean the rooms were! Would definately stay again if passing through! If you're looking for luxury resort this is not the place but if you're looking for a comfortable & clean hotel one block from beach this is for you!... More

My husband, 2 young daughters and I stayed for 5 nights in August. The Motel is fine for a short vacation - it's across the street from a nice beach and has a pool. They have small flat screen tv's which are fine. You can walk everywhere. The staff was nice and accommodating but they are a little stingy with... More

We stayed here again in 2014 and 2015. Rooms are very nice, clean and close to everything. However, I am having a problem with getting the manager to call me about a billing issue. Hoping to hear from Tom soon . They had a Taxman special when you booked early, which I did do, but my bill doesn't reflect that... More

Agree with everyone that has stated that the Fenwick Islander is a great deal and provides a pleasant place to stay, with great beach and restaurant access. Have stayed at this motel four times over the past three years. So, I must like it, right? It believe it's gotten better each time with the motel making pleasing renovations and improving... More
