“A CLEAN WELL LIGHTED PLACE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

If you're looking for luxury, forget the Sea Hawk! But if you're looking for a nice efficiency motel room that's very clean (although it's "dated") for a reasonable price, this is it! The staff was excellent and the housekeepers were attentive. This motel is oceanside, so you don't have to cross the 8-lane highway (a plus!). We did not use the pool. It's at the North end of Ocean City, so you don't have the clamor of downtown congestion and it's conveniently located to Fenwick Island (beautiful State Park) and Bethany Beach. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance - I'd recommend Dumser's Dairyland Restaurant for breakfast, lunch or dinner - great food/reasonable prices/specials every day. Grotto pizza was also good. Crabcake Factory was o.k. Would stay there again. Oh, they have an elevator so you don't have to lug your luggage up the steps! Also, be prepared for noise from the highway, but please realize that any hotel/motel on the Coastal Highway has to cope with the same noise.

Room Tip: Any room is good; but I'd suggest when going to the beach, head out through the BACK parking lot...

Motel was very clean. Friendly staff. Close to beach. Plenty of towels. Nice pool though we prefered the beach. Balcony gets afternoon sun. Walking distance to several restaurants.Grotto Pizza and a Dairy Queen are across the street. Location is uptown - closer to Fenwick Island. No high rise buildings to block the sun on the beach. Parking was not an issue as we came in September during the week. Price is right - would stay again.

Room Tip: Choose an efficiency as it has a stove, microwave, sink, full size refrigerator and table and chairs...

Went with my sister and two nieces to spend a weekend in Ocean City. Booked the Sea Hawk Motel because it seemed like a good place for the right price. Plus I had read many other positive reviews and ratings online. The motel was very clean and well kept. We really lucked out on having three days of great weather. I think it was especially nice and quiet for us since we booked it toward the end of the season. It wasn't too crowded so we really enjoyed the pool. The staff was also very friendly and upbeat. I say if you want a cheap and nice place to stay for a short getaway this is a good choice.

Room Tip: Watch the sunset from your balcony at night.

Very clean and comfortable. Good location. Nicely kept for an older motel. Would stay there again. Parking could be better - seemed limited for the number of rooms. Free WiFi but had to ask for user ID and password.

My family and I have stayed here 3 times in the last 6 years and plan to make it our yearly getaway. Very clean, friendly staff and very convenient to everything! The pool is clean and well taken care of. The rooms are comfortable. The only thing that I would add is to have an exhaust fan in the bathroom. It is a perfect family place!

This is my 2nd time staying here and it never disapoints. It's a typical motel. Nothing overly fancy, but it has a pool, close to the beach, well maintained, very quiet and exceptionally clean. There is even an elevator. At $140 a night on a weekend in season, you can't beat it. If you are looking for a clean and reasonable priced motel close to the beach, this should be your first choice. Also, there sister location, the Shangri-La, is just as nice. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: I personally prefer the rooms with a balcony facing the side street. You can catch a glimpse of the...

This place was just right for us ! We were in ocean city for 1 night with a 4 year old & were looking for a place that was affordable yet clean & convenient. The sea hawk was both ... In addition to being a few steps walk to a rather nice part of the beach - not crowded but great for small kids to play on. This may not be in the middle of the downtown hubbub - but that depends on what you are looking for. They do have a pool and there's plenty of restaurants & shopping within walking distance. It's definitely not a 5 star hotel- but the room was spacious, very clean & plenty of towels etc. Just right for us !!!
