“Ducks closing party and Hurricane Sandy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

My wife and I stayed here starting Friday Oct 26th and departed Sunday Oct 28th. We picked the Talbot in because it was MR Ducks season closing party. The room rate was offseason so it was only $55 per night. Rooms are clean with a nice view of the bay. We love MR Ducks and visit several times a year. Staff was friendly, nothing really to complain about. Rooms are ok but again is was $55 per night to well worth it. This was the weekend of the hurricane. The rain held out until Sunday I think. Even without the rain the bay and ocean started rising and the streets by Talbot start to flood. At 4am Sunday morning be headed out of OC. By 8am the streets all around Talbot started flooding. Friends of ours stayed as well and left at 8am. I live OC, I use to live there and still visit friends often. A lot of time I drive down just to visit them. So the Hurricane hit home and I felt terrible for the town. It wasn’t as bad as it come have been, so in a way we’re lucky. Anyway we can’t wait for the opening party at Ducks. See you soon!

Room Tip: Book the building on the bay.

We have been coming to the Talbot for about six years, at least once per year, twice when we can. We come here for a number reasons, close proximity to everything O.C. is the biggest reason. You can be here a week and completely forget you have a vehicle in the parking lot!! Kicking back with a good book, enjoying your morning coffee and doing a little partying is another. There are two buildings to choose from on this property, each with a different perspective. The Streetside facing north is much newer, larger and quieter if thats what you prefer. The bayside (our 1st choice) is an older, slightly smaller group of second and third floor ONLY units that face the bay. The balconies of these rooms are literally within reach of the water, and also look direrctly down on Mr. Ducks bar and grille. Which will not be very quiet on the weekend because of the quality live entertainment that brings in alot of locals. The sunsets from these units is amazing to say the least. All the bayside rooms are well equipped kitchenettes with a small bathroom, full tub, two full beds and a balcony. They are by no means fancy so to speak but most do have flat panel tv's and are kept very clean and tidy. We have stayed in the streetside rooms on one occasion but felt a little bored without the view and entertainment. These rooms are basically the same, a little larger overall and ours had a sofabed. There is no elevator in either building so be prepared to hoof it up some steps. The staff here is very, very helpfull, expeienced and courteous. Overall this is a great place to stay if you like alot of activity or love to people watch, not the creepy kind!!

Room Tip: Book early, this place fills up quickly!

If you want to stay in the Inlet area the Talbot Inn is the place to stay. Two short blocks and you are at the beach, boardwalk, and rides. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable for 4 (sleeps 6). You can see the ocean from the 2nd and 3rd floors and you are on the water on the bay side. Very pretty. Plus it is neat to see the boats go through the draw bridge. You have the OC Rocket, the Pirate Boat, and MR Ducks right there. You are close to the DeLazy Lizzard which is a neat place for kids to play and eat. The Talbot inn will be my first choice every year we go. Only con to Talbot there is no pool. See you in September 2013!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong on any floor. There is no elevator so if you do not like to do the steps, pick th...

We stay there every year for Sunfest and love it. The staff is great!!! The best part is it is right upstairs from M R Ducks which has the best bartenders in Ocean City. It may not be the most high class place down the ocean but the views, staff, and location make up for it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Talbot Inn is close to the rides and a few very good restaurants (and just across the bridge from our favorite restaurant in OC, Shark On The Harbor). As you can see from the photo attached, it is newer construction by Ocean City standards, but the price point, for the fantastic location, is very affordable.

The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, the tv is LCD HD. Rooms have fridge, microwave, hairdryer, coffee maker and the little conditioner bottles. Kids did not get black feet from walking barefoot on the carpeting, which was comfy and newish.

It's a ten minute walk to rides, games, boardwalk and the widest part of Ocean City's very clean beach. Excursions leave from the dock right outside the hotel.

The sunset photo attached was taken from our hotel balcony 8/8/2012.

The reasons I can't give Talbot Inn five-out-of-five:

1. There is not enough parking. If you are lucky to get a parking space the walk to the rooms is very short, but otherwise you have to let their (free) valet park your car for you, and they keep the key until you need it or they can find a spot.

2. There was a hole in the bathroom ceiling right over the shower. A big hole. about eight inches by twelve inches, we could see the insulation and rafters.

3. The smoke detector was hanging from the ceiling by the wires, as if it went off and someone hit it with a broom. How can they not fix this before check-in?

4. No daily changes of bedsheets.

All in all, we were very pleased with our stay and will be back next year.
