“family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Great rooms at a reasonable price. Friendly, courteous service. Walk right out onto the boardwalk. A family atmosphere. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Very relaxing. Walk the boardwalk, take the tram, or walk just one block to catch the bus to anywhere in Ocean City.

As one of the oldest hotels in Ocean City you can't beat the charm of the antiques and decorations within the hotel. We had a room on the third floor which was nice except for huffing up stair case after stair case with full hands of luggage or shopping or anything else. Pretty much if we forgot it in the room we did without or flipped a coin to see who would be the lucky one to get in another workout.

The staff was amazing--they will hold your room key at the front desk if you're going out for the evening or to the beach so you don't lose it. A huge plus for us as we were there for a couples weekend without the children.

Extra towels were a small problem to get as they wanted the used ones first--understandable but at the same time I prefer two, one for my hair and one for my body, and I can't give away what I haven't used yet and they leave just enough in one full room for two people only. Our tub drain was a little slow as water was to my ankles after quick showers...not bothersome for our two nights but if it had been a week stay I would've complained.

Bathroom was a nice size but no counter space to speak of for girly articles like makeup, curling/straightening iron, even toothbrushes and paste. The wallpaper in our bathroom was perfect for the beach but for some odd reason the beach ball border was carried into the main room as well which had a floral background. Once again I put this down to the old style charm.

The room itself was nice sized and clean. The windows opened for a nice breeze that's always present at the ocean. Our bed was a full size and not the queen advertised but was okay for a two night stay. Large dresser with mirror and oddly enough, ample closet space to stow suitcases with hooks which once again lends itself to the old days of storing steamer trunks, etc.

The double doors on the rooms were nice...one solid on the inside and one louvered on the outside...once again leaning towards the old days to keep the rooms cooler before the advent of a/c. If we went out to the porch overlooking the boardwalk we tended to shut only the louvered one. The walls were a tad thin...but not bothersome. The fridge was a nice addition as well as the tiny coffepot. TV was ancient but we weren't there to watch it.

The outside pool is heated...such a nice luxury and a huge plus! Outside shower is in the courtyard. It could stand to have a fourth wall or door but most outside ones don't so no biggie.

If we stay again, it'll be on a lower floor due to bad knees and the stair issue as while there is an elevator we found out staff is required to operate it and its mainly for luggage only.

Great location and parking for a weekend or week.

The Atlantic is in the heart of Ocean City. Let the car at the parking for all your stay and enjoy. At the feet of the pier, the hotel is kind of a vintage one with all the up-date needed for a comfortable stay. You will feel like been at a big family home in front of the great beach of Ocean City. Close from restaurant and activity, the best place.

My husband and I have been staying at this hotel since 1966. It is one of the oldest hotels in Ocean City, but is soooooo well maintained and updated regularly. Its hands down, the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. The rooms are large and airy, the beds are comfortable and the atmosphere of the whole place is just charming. Our room had a microwave, refrigerator and HD TV with WIFI. The thing we like the best is the porch. Its lined with rocking chairs and it overlooks the famous boardwalk - just feet from the amusement pier and the widest beach in Ocean City. There is a heated swimming pool though we never got a chance to use it, because we were too busy checking out the boardwalk, all of the sights that are within walking distance and the marinas on the bay side. I can't stress enough how nice it is to walk down the hustling, bustling boardwalk and enter the lobby of the Atlantic - peace and quiet - and newly decorated. We usually only stay 2 or 3 nights, but don't even have to move the car once - everything you need is right there. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

The Atlantic Hotel is the BEST place to stay in Ocean City, Md. The staff are wonderful...from the check-in staff to the housekeeping staff. They are always friendly and remember you from year to year. Tammy, Hskpg. Supervisor always makes me feel welcome. Her daughter is working there now also. That just proves that Tara and Charlie are great people to work for...that the 2nd generation wants to work for the Atlantic Hotel. You can't be any closer to the boardwalk then walking out the front door and there you are!!!! I can't say enough about this Hotel...!!

Just got back from 5 beautiful days in Ocean City, Md. Had another great stay at the Atlantic Hotel. Mary checked us in and was wonderful. Connie our housekeeper was very nice and did a great job. Carl and Ronald came out to our vehicle and carried our things to the elevator and then in to our room because the only luggage cart they had was broken. The room was nice and clean and smelled great. The bed was a little softer than we like but we will continue to stay there and we recommend the hotel to our friends. The hotel had new wall paper and furniture covers in the lobby. It was bright and beautiful. The best hotel for the money. It's not fancy but it's clean and the staff are great and it's on the boardwalk. Get a room with a fridge and microwave. It's a little more but worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a fridge and microwave.
