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

This motel doesn't look like much, but it was a great stay for my family and I! It is right across the street from the beach (just a short walk) and it is close enough to walk to shopping and dining in Fenwick. The televisions and flooring in the bathroom have been updated and I believe that they are working... More

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!
