After I booked and read some of the reviews on this site I become nervous about my decision to stay here. Granted, it was just overnight for an impromptu trip to the beach for my Bachelorette party, so I cannot comment on long stay's at this hotel. However, I can say that during our stay, this hotel exceeded our expectations & put all my fears to rest. Maybe I am just not a picky person. As some people say, you get what you pay for, and this is true. Anyone booking lodging in Ocean City, should not expect 5 star world renowned hotels. Unless you want to book the Hilton, pretty much every hotel & its amenities are similar. I know this because I go to OC every year and have stayed at many hotels & motels there. The reason I picked the Burgundy Inn was because I needed a room that slept up to 6 people and was still reasonably priced & didn't require a minimum of 2/3 nights stay. Is the Burgundy inn a 5 star fancy place? Of course not. BUT, our room was clean, beds made & bathroom smelled of cleaning chemicals nice and fresh. Fast & friendly check in, spacious room with plenty of space to pack all of my bridesmaids into and a comfy couch & kitchen area. One of the biggest mini fridges I have ever encountered at a hotel. We fit all our drinks & leftovers from dinner in with no problem. Beds were big & comfortable. No sign of bed bugs (we checked) & water temperature was hot and pressure was good, especially after I pulled a muscle in my back swimming. The Staff are what really make the place though. Upon check in they asked what brought us down and as preceded to tell them about my Bacheolorette party & some minor disappointments such as the weather and two bridesmaids canceling last minute, they promptly gave us a late check out free of charge. Apparently its an optional fee to check out at 3 instead of 10am which I think is a nifty idea to offer guests. But I was so touched with them gave us the late check out for free. She said since we were going to be out celebrating we would need to sleep in the next day and boy was she right! As an added surprise from the hotel the vacancy sign now also flashed "Best Wishes to Rachael & John". It was such a nice touch on their part. But then as if that wasn't enough my bridesmaids went to ask where to buy some pain relief for my pulled muscle and the hotel gave us some Tylenol they had, and them my maid of honor had a blister on her toe from her shoes and they handed over a band aid for her as well. Everyone was friendly, laid back and personable. I told them I would definitely return and recommend this hotel to others. It was such a good time, my maid of honor says when she gets married maybe we can all do the same thing for her Bachelorette party.
I personally think no matter what hotel you go to, no matter where its at, there are going to be good and bad experiences. No one bribed us with any Pizza nor did they have to because we were happy with our room & stay. Would have been nice to have some pizza though because our dinner at Bahama Mama's was truly something to complain about lol.
