“seabay hotel stay march 8-10”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

our stay was pleasurable and the staff were friendly. Only thing I would have changed is the view... the building adjacent to us connected to Seabay was vacant and would have loved to have been looking over the bay... and they need to install an indoor pool somewhere located under the second building adjacent the parking lot, like maybe enclosed under the lower part of the section of the building... next to the bay... otherwise, we had a great stay and they have remodeled and repainted the 3rd floor, and beds were comfortable and pillows were too.. oh and they need new chairs for the table side... one in our room was about to fall apart and someone could get hurt.. the other chair well some day soon it too will be shaky and unsturdy.. hope no one falls out of it and gets hurt.

Thanks for staying with us! We're glad your stay was enjoyable and we appreciate your feedback. The "West" building has rooms with direct bay views and is open on weeknds starting in mid March until mid April when it is open full time until October. Be sure to ask for a water view during your next stay! We did replace a lot of chairs, I will be sure that all of them are tested for their sturdiness, thanks for the heads up. We do have an outdoor pool at each of our buildings. I wish they were indoor, have not figured out logistically how to make that happen yet!

This place is fine for a budget traveler. It is clean but dated. I was happy there and It was inexpensive for off season but I think many reviews sell it to be more than it is. Rooms are big. Beds are pretty bad. TV is awful. Fridge works great. Plenty of space on the balcony. For a basic budget hotel it is fine, nothing more. I would stay there again under the same scenario but would not stay there for a beach vacation. If you need cheap place for a night or 2 and dont spend a lot of time in the hotel anyway it will serve a purpose. Staff was very kind.

We always take our yearly summer trip to Ocean City and have every year said we would look at other places. About all we do is look because we always come back to Sea Bay. We have always had a good time and find everyone quite nice. Looking forward to returning this year for another fun filled vacation.

Room Tip: Beautiful view on Bay Side.

This is my 3rd stay in this hotel and each time it gets better and better. Twice now, we've stayed under their "Romance Package" close to Valentine's Day and have enjoyed ourselves so much, that this will certainly be a yearly event for us. The staff is so friendly and helpful and each seems to enjoy their jobs. They offered great tips for places to eat and things to do. If you haven't stayed here, book today. It will be worth it and you'll make a great memory.

Room Tip: All the rooms I've stayed in are HUGE. Love it.

We were booked in a condo for a week and decided to try to find a place in OC for the night before our week started. We decided this LESS than a week before our arrival date! I was very doubtful that I'd find a place in the middle of July that would allow just a single Friday night stay. The Sea Bay Hotel welcomed us with a rate that didn't break the bank! It had 2 king size beds and a sofabed. The room was clean and comfortable. Plenty of hot water and towels. Nice balcony. The staff was great. Much better than I was expecting!

We stayed the last week in August 2012 which is the week that all 3 of my children are out of camp, before school starts. The room was clean the staff was very friendly. They were so friendly that when I came back from the beach i asked to borrow the vacuum to sweep up the sand from the children and the desk person brought up the vacum and vacumed the floor. There was a small game room and a laundry which was a huge help. My children enjoyed the pool and the beach which was just across the street. We also enjoyed the Sea Bay Cafe in the hotel for breakfast and lunch. It was really the best family vacation and I can assure that we will be back. My children cannot stop asking when we will go back. Thank you Sea Bay see you next summer.

I had the opportunity to spend three nights here and found the room basic but comfortable enough. The room was clean and well maintained but a bit dated. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. This would be a great hotel for a family with children on a budget.

Room Tip: The view to the bay is excellent.
