I came to OCMD with a bunch of friends on biker weekend. I am a loyal Hilton family man, so I was happy to find this brand new Hampton when the Hilton was sold out.
I'll start by saying that I was very impressed by this hotel when I pulled up and walked in the lobby. Free parking right out front of the hotel, which is great. Free fresh fruit, coffee, and other drinks available in the lobby at all times. Checkin was great - we arrived around noon so no lines at all. Had two rooms, one was available when we arrived so we were able to get early checkin. The second room was available at the normal checkin time which was fine. The hotel was completely booked up for this weekend, but the staff was still able to accomodate early checkin and two connecting rooms, which was great.
This hotel was brand new and probably only a couple people stayed in the rooms before we did, so as you can imagine they looked flawless. Typical Hampton Inn room, two beds, mini refrigerator, microwave, flat screen, nice size bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean and looked brand new (because it was). Plenty of towels and toiletries in each room. We had a bayfront room, which I would highly recommend since the balconies overlook the bay and the pool/tiki bar area. The best part about the room was definitely the balcony, just sitting out there and relaxing, day or night. Temperature control in the room was great, we kept it cold the entire stay.
The staff at this hotel was really top notch. Every single staff member that I encountered was friendly, courteous, and willing to help with any need that I had. We called the front desk to order a cab, and they ordered it for us. Zack at the front desk was especially helpful in getting us extra room keys and checking our other guests into the second room when they arrived. The housekeeping staff was also great. Denise, who was cleaning our room, helped us out with lots of extra towels.
Pool/Tiki bar area:
There are two pools at this hotel. One indoor, which I checked out but didn't use, and one outdoor. The outdoor pool was great. Nice, clean water the entire time. They have a hot tub area as well (both indoor and outdoor). There were plenty of tables and chairs at the pool area when we went. The tiki bar really makes this outdoor area cool. Plenty of drinks and food selections. Plenty of bar chairs and seating areas. The bartenders were really cool. Even for being brand new, we had absolutely no problems with our food or drink orders.
I would not hesitate for one minute to book a stay at this hotel again. Alot of hotels in OCMD are old and run down, but this one is brand new and in a prime location. The pool/bar area was incredible considering it was a Hampton Inn and overall the staff was awesome. I would challenge any other hotel in OCMD at this price point to compete with this Hampton Inn.
Definitely opt for the bayfront rooms. They overlook the pool and tiki bar area and you can watch t...
