“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This was our second year staying at the Courtyard Ocean City - on our way to Florida. Last year we stayed one night - this year two nights. This is a very well run hotel. The staff is excellent, rooms meticulously clean and comfortable and an absolutely wonderful location. This year we were on the third floor ocean front. Simply love having coffee in the morning on the balcony, looking at the sand and the ocean. Doesn't get much better than this!!

We stayed here a few years ago and were pleased. I wondered how it would be this time after a few years of beach wear and tear. They have maintained the property well. The rooms were clean, modern the beds very comfortable. The restaurant serves a good breakfast and the bar area is nice. Plenty of parking and right on the boardwalk. Be mindful that ocean front rooms overlook the boardwalk. In season they might be a bit noisy. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: If requesting ocean front, request a high floor room for less noise and more privacy.

The staff are very friendly and check-in took just a couple of minutes. Our room had two queens and still had enough room for us to get around. It was labeled a city view, but the balcony had a nice view of the beach, as well. The location is great, within walking distance of many restaurants and a little over a mile from the main boardwalk area. It has a nice pool, hot tub, and workout room. We had the room on the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend for $97. We had a great time.

Thank you for staying with us, FJOP! I'm pleased to hear that you had a great time in Ocean City! The elevated area around the pool is not technically a hot tub, but is considered a conversation pit which is the same tempature as our pool. We look forward to seeing you again here soon and please feel to contact for our hotel with any upcoming vacation plans for rates and availability.

While it's hard to say anything bad, there's nothing "Marriott" to make me feel that I would choose this over another chain that would provide breakfast at lower prices. The lobby's location on the third floor makes things a bit awkward when checking in, etc.

Thank you for your review, MarilynR. Unfortunately, the Courtyard by Marriott brand does not offer complimentary breakfast; however, we do have the Captains Table restaurant within our hotel that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. I do regret that you found nothing "Marriott" about our hotel, because our staff goes above and beyond to offer our guest the "Marriott Way" to everyone. We certainly hope that the next time you visit Ocean City that you give us another opportunity to offer the "Marriott WOW".

The OC boardwalk has its share of outdated and ugly hotels in various states of disrepair. The courtyard is definitely NOT one of them. The hotel is very clean, modern and tasteful, the location is perfect. 15th street, just up from the busy end of the boardwalk. We read a few reviews about a "weird" layout with the floors, but honestly it's no big deal. The pool was clean, ample seating. The pool itself is indoor, with huge doors leading to an outdoor sun-deck. We wished the pool area overlooked the beach, however we definitely appreciated that it was private and quiet (didn't overlook the parking lot or main road, thankfully). The balcony was great, loved the glass that didn't obstruct the sea view when seated. Free wifi is very quick and simple. Fridge and microwave were super convenient. Parking is covered, safe, and plentiful in the off-season. We opted not to have our room cleaned during our stay, and it was awesome that the cleaning staff left a bag of replacement toiletries outside our door. We also noticed that the sliding glass doors realy blocked out outside noise...when we closed to door to our balcony it was wonderfully quiet.

Our only real complaint was that our bed was uncomfortable. It was too soft with no support, and it was significant enough that we felt a little sore each day. But we so appreciated having a nice hotel in OC that we will return despite the bed situation.

We are looking forward to our next stay at the Courtyard!

Room Tip: Side view rooms are very close to the main road, so if you are on a budget and don't want to sta...

This hotel is on the boardwalk, in the middle of all the action. Parking is Extremely tight for an SUV. What we liked most was that we could park the car and walk everywhere. Hotel was clean, except for the shower curtain bar, but after a quick wipe down to remove the rust it was fine. Water pressure was good (important for girls trying to wash sand out of hair). Fridge with microwave. Coffee in lobby is terrible, but free. Indoor pool was great ( we were the only ones) although we joked the pool was warmer than the hot tub. Would have been better. We didn't try the restaurant in the hotel, too many others to chose from for it to be so pricy.
All in all a good stay.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony facing another hotel's pool. Roomy enough that we could have sat out ther...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, rmrbjr. I understand parking an SUV can be tight in any garage and the next time I hope that you take full advantage of our open air parking lot which may be more suitable for SUV's. I have shared your review with our housekeeping staff and appreciate you bringing this to my attention. We hope to see you again and have another chance to give you a great vacation!

My husband and I were looking for a mini vacation together and thought of Ocean City where we got engaged years ago. We are loyal to Marriott, so were happy to find a Courtyard right on the boardwalk. Imagine our surprise when we got a balcony room over looking the ocean!! It was a wonderful time, relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the sun rise with our champagne. Our room was neat, clean, well appointed, and with easy access to the attached Captain's Table restaurant. The high standards and quality of the Marriott line is evident here too, and the hotel is only about 4 years old. Their pool and hot tub were in an inner enclosed courtyard area, leaving the seating area unobstructed on the ground floor patio area. The pool is small, mostly for kids who just need to splash around, not do laps. There is a gym here as well. Great time!

Room Tip: there are limited spaces under the hotel for parking, with an overflow lot across the street. check...
