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

First, let me start by saying that my wife and I have stayed at the Fenwick Islander many times throughout the past years, often several times per year. We've loved it and considered it a great value (considering proximity to the beach and other motels in the area). The staff is and always has been wonderful - very welcoming, kind,... More

King size bed, microwave, sink, refrigerator with small freezer compartment included. The pool is lovely and clear.

Mold on the drapes,in the shower,on the mini fridge...everywhere. I even found half eaten crackers on the floor(that didnt belong to us)- if things like this matter... More

The location was perfect and the cost affordable even on a busy Labor Day weekend. Beds ok. Inexpensive looking toiletries but they worked. Parking was difficult when we got home around 11 pm so I would suggest you either keep your car parked or be sure to come back early if you want to have a parking place at the... More
