“Excellent Place To Stay, Perfect For Kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

We enjoyed our stay here. The pool is perfect for kids. The lazy river is small, but the kids loved it. The slides kept them amused for a while. We got a one bedroom suite, which was pretty spacious, and it had a full kitchen, which was nice. Not sure it was worth almost $500.00 a night, but still, we'd go back. I expect to pay more on the boardwalk. Location is great, roughly the middle of the boardwalk, in the center of everything. I have only 2 complaints. The restaurant here is awful. Coral Reef, I think it's called. Food was awful, service was awful. Bartenders were great, but that is the only part of the restaurant I can recommend. My other complaint was that we did not get either of the two wake up calls we ordered. Had we had something scheduled and missed it, we'd be upset. We were upset anyway, not to have gotten the promised call, but if we had missed an event or something, that would have been even worse. After complaining, we set one for the next day, and were promised it would come through. Alas, it did not. Could be an issue, but didn't affect our day too much. All in all, the perfect place to stay in Ocean City, and we will be back.

Am currently here and having an awesome stay. This is our second stay at this property. The kids 13,11 and 4 love the beach and the pools - especially the water slide. The room is very clean and we have a beautiful view of the ocean. We love the location on the boardwalk. The kitchen has everything we need - except bring a bigger frying pan if you plan on making pancakes. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: room 904 - the window and balcony have great beach view without paying beachfront rate.

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in July with our two children who are 3 and 6. Our suite was great and we loved everything about it. The room was super clean, the beds very comfortable, and having the kitchen is a great feature that allows you to save on eating out all the time (3 meals out is just to much for our kids at there ages). The adult pool does not get over crowded, and while the kids pool is more crowded, it is just so much fun and we took the kids every day. The boardwalk is a flight of stairs down from the pool, so you have a lot of privacy. I can't say enough about how much we loved this hotel and we honestly would not want to stay anywhere else now that we've been here!!!!

I've stayed here twice and was very satisfied both times. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was great and the location was perfect! My husband and I had an efficiency suite that was very comfortable with a balcony overlooking the ocean. I would definitely stay here again.

Very clean room with very comfortable beds. Paid about $500 per night for a 2 queen bed oceanfront suite in July. The suite had a bedroom with 2 queen beds and a flat screen TV. There was a large balcony off the bedroom with a great view of the boardwalk, beach, and ocean. There was a kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishwasher. It was stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, flatware etc. There was a living/dining room area with a table big enough to seat 4-6 people, a sleeper sofa, and another flat screen TV. Our room was on the 5th floor and had a very nice oceanfront view. While the room was fairly expensive, we were not nickel and dimed to death. 12oz cans of Coca Cola products were only 40 cents in the vending machines and there were washers and dryers available for use at no charge. There was free fresh fruit available in the lobby each day. All you can eat breakfast in the restaurant was about $10 plus beverage. The pools were very nice, especially the kiddy pool. I can't wait to come back next summer.

This is seriously the BEST on OCM! I have 2 small children and the pool here is beyond awesome! Perfect for them! Everyday we start at the beach and when they get bored we move up to the pool! My only complaint is the waitress's at the
Pool! Do yourself a favor and walk to the bar and get it yourself! Some, not all, of these girls need
some waitress training to say the least! Horrible! Anyway, the rooms could use updating for the price of the room.....but love how sound proof they are! Great location and oh yeah go to DaVincis a few streets down if you love real Italian food! Yum! Can't wait for 2012!
