“Haven Hotel on Steriods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

The Old Haven Hotel has been updated to the NEW Ocean 1 Hotel and Suites. I've been staying here for years, FINALLY they have updated the carpet in the property, service has improved 1000% percent and the front desk can actually speak english. Location is right on the ocean front and boardwalk, I promise you this is not the old Haven, it has a new life.

The people at the front desk were more than helpful and very friendly. My room was great, it appeared to have been redone recently. I never stayed there when it was Haven Hotel, but I can tell you, NOW it is a great place to stay. Nice location, nice rooms. The parking is about a block away but I don't go to the beach to drive my car every day. One trip to hotel when I get there and one trip back when I'm ready to leave, so no big deal. How many trips up and down the boardwalk do you take? That you have to walk a block to park, come on, how bad is that? I will definatley be staying there again. You owe it to yourself to check the place out since it changed hands.

I find that the hotel itself is nice. However they are missing a few things that are key to a good ocean hotel. They need a POOL!!! Without a pool they will not do as well. They need digital alram clocks in the rooms. Overall just nice

Room Tip: Rooms were ok

Haven Hotel & Suites is a clean, affordable hotel room right on the Ocean City Boardwalk. It served as our "haven" after a disappointing check in at a timeshare a few yards away. The staff was wonderful and allowed me to preview the room before checking. I was given a very reasonable rate after they learned I had spent good money on a condo unit that was inhabitable.

Haven Hotel more than meets the standard for a clean, affordable, comfortable, lodging while exploring the Ocean City Boardwalk!!!

Thank You Haven Hotel for saving us from the BoardWalk One RCI timeshare in Ocean City. Upon arriving at Boardwalk One it was neither on the beach nor was it any way inhabitable. The must and mold immediately gave me sinus trouble ... God Bless the Haven Hotel!!!

Judging from what others have written on here I am sure we way overpaid for our room. We were there over Cruisin" weekend 10/5/12 - 10/07/12. The room was $187.00 a night. But I wanted on the Boardwalk and Ocean Front, so I was happy. The room was very roomy, had a kitchenette and a jacuzzi in the bedroom. It was clean in the parts you used, but don't look behind or under anything. Those are the pros of the place, the cons were how shabby it is. Corridor carpets are bordering on disgustingly dirty. The curtains and bedspreads all had holes in them. The sheets had grease on them. The maid did not change the sheets when she made up the room. Just remade the bed. The pillows felt like cheap 2 for $5 flat pillows. Bed was ok but definitely well used. Good TV and cable, but not HD. Someone else mentioned the towels were the softest she ever felt. Ours must have missed the fabric softener rinse, they felt like sandpaper. Parking was not a problem. Just a short block away. We pulled right up and unloaded, then parked the car. I would still consider staying here again. The location was great. Hangers in the closet would have been a nice touch. Oh also, the air conditioner sounded like a constant leaf blower. The front desk was very friendly and accommodating.
