“Nice Hotel...Excellent On-Site Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Decided to finally try the Marriott Ocean City in the fall/winter after going elsewhere during the summer due to the high rates. Location is great, not too far from the boardwalk action and exactly in front of the nice rocks in the sand that most people take pictures on. Like others have mentioned, the parking lot is very tight. At one point I had to squeeze in a spot between an SUV and a wall.....unfortunately my wife had to climb over to the drivers side to get out of the car. Check in was smooth. The lobby is on the 3rd floor of the hotel which is a little strange. Everything was right along with what you would expect at any Marriott.....comp coffee, cookies etc. ...but the hotel decor throughout the hallways was a little outdated (beach theme). Our room was spacious, and the balcony was decent, aside from the bright lights on all night. Don't expect to get a strong wifi connection....wireless or wired. The best thing about the hotel is the on site restaurant. The Captain's Table was excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. Prices are a little steep, but the food quality is top notch and the waiters/bartenders were great.

Room Tip: Room 218 has a wrap around balcony.

My husband and I are Marriott members and stayed one night. After cooking and family visits we went to Ocean City for a quick break. Enjoyed the winter lights show with no line. Our view from the room was perfect. The room was clean and spacious. A Sunday night stay was perfect!

I am a travel agent and stayed here for one night in November of last year and it was awesome. tend to stay at Marriott prodcuts when i can.

The rooms were new, updated, contemporary and clean. You can't beat the location right on the boardwalk.

However, the best part of the hotel is the restaurant. I got in around 7:30 after a long drive and just wanted to get a guick bite. When I asked the front desk they recommended their restaurant. I have to admit I generally don't think to highly of hotel restaurants. I looked at the menu and thought I could eat here. On top of it they had a nice small bar that I could sit at and watch TV. This appealed to me since I was traveling by myself.

I had the rack of lamb which was perfect. Everyone around me said there was terrific. We got to be so friendly that we all started sharing our food. I know that sounds a bit bizzare but you had to be there. The next morning I had breakfast, and again I was not disappointed.

Excellent hotel, great location, wonderful ocean view rooms with balconies, clean, and the hotel provides the amenities to relax ie,jacuzzi, indoor pool, exercise room, and restaurant with great breakfast, lunch and dinner. We spent a week for some fall rest and relaxation and it was wonderful. You could rest, relax and dine in the hotel or step out on the board walk, a short distance to the outlets or explore Ocean City and surrounding Wicomico County Highly reccomend this Ocean City hotel.

First of all this hotel was very clean. The layout was a bit confusing because the lobby is on the 3rd floor, so when we were assigned to the second floor it made it confusing, however later I realized it made it more secure because when coming into the hotel the elevator opens at the ground floor and the lobby only, unless you have your room key you are not getting to any of the other floors from the elevator. They were very gracious about my 5 to 10 min. late check out. We checked in about 4:30 pm and went to the on site restaurant because we saw the
"early bird" advertisement in the elevator because we were pressed for time to go anywhere else. When we opened up the menu we were shocked at how expensive the prices were for dinner. For instance, chicken meal was about $24.00, Fish was $30 and steak about $35, plus on the menu they charge $ 6 if you "share" a dish, so when the waitress came, we were going to order soup and salad that was still overpriced, however we asked about the "early bird" special and she said "Oh yes you were seated before 6 pm so let me go get those early bird menus, she never offered them. The restaurant was not super fancy and the hostess looked like she just rolled out of bed her clothes hanging off her sloppy looking, not what you would expect for the prices they were charging. Overall the hotel itself, coffee in the lobby 24 hours, very nice, and coffee in the room with small refrigerator. Our room was ocean side view, very comfortable. Very nice staff that offered help when I was leaving. OVERALL do not hesitate to stay here, very nice place. We paid $168 for one night, but it was worth it.

Room Tip: Ask to be above the third floor
