“Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

I have stayed here twice and really enjoyed it. The rooms are very clean and spacious. I loved the private balconies. The air conditioning is perfect and its quiet. The only downfall is the location. Its at 61st right off the rt. 90 bridge far from the boardwalk and attractions. Also bayside so you must cross both sides of the coastal highway at its busiest point to get to the beach. I love the hotel but wish the location was better. And prices have gone up. I'd stay here again but don't like to be so far from the boardwalk and attractions. And don't like that they raised rates. But it is a nice clean hotel.

Thanks for staying with us again and providing us with your feedback. We go both ways with our location, some people like being away from the boardwalk and the hustle and bustle of downtown OC and prefer to be close to the bridge, just a personal preference I think. We did have a slight increase on the rates on some of our room types but we always have discounts and specials available especially to our "Repeat Guests" so be sure to ask! We do hope you will consider returning to the Sea Bay Hotel. Thanks again!

I had a great time. Everyone was very nice, the rooms were clean, and the surrounding areas as well. The place could use upgraded flat screen tv's (I was in the West Building with double beds) as well as some touch ups with paint and plasterer. Very central place in the heart of Ocean City. No complaints here, just a few upgrades would make my room rating higher. The wireless internet was fairly quick, even with 3 devices being used at the same time in the room. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the ac / heat unit worked awesome. The shower pressure and water temps were great and the bathroom overall was a decent size. Again a very nice overall place to stay. Also if the rooms had a wet bar with a sink that would of been very helpful as well. I had a double bed room but my friend brought a fill sized air mattress and that fit right next to the beds so we technically had 3 beds in the room. The room has a nice sized table and 2 comfortable chairs. The dresser has 4 large drawers and in between the 2 beds a nice sized dress area with 1 drawer and a open space underneath. The room also had nice lighting and a decent closet area when you first get in. I would stay again.

Room Tip: I believe the East building was recently more renovated, I stayed in the West Building, still a nice...

We decided at the last minute to book a trip to Ocean City to obtain a SUP Certification, hosted by Fager's Island and the WSUPA! We experienced great Customer Service and a super convenient location! Thanks for making our trip enjoyable.

A group of us stayed there on a Golf outing. The hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The rooms were equipped with Microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker. Although is was too cold the pool and outdoor patio were spotless and inviting. The bedding was good and clean but soft mattresses. Towels were plentiful but a little small and thin.
Overall a nice place to stay with plenty of restaurants within walking distance. I would not hesitate to stay their again.

We stay here every September for the last 4 years. The service is very nice. They accommodate to us very well. We come down for a vw show and they are very welcoming. The rooms are in good condition. Sure its on the bay side but its a great value.

We love our Return Guests. Thanks for staying with us once again. I do think we provide a great value to our guest and after all we are just one block from the beach. As I have mentioned before, our sunsets are great, an advantage to being bayside. We welcome all groups. I hope you enjoy our "Welcome Signs" We look forward to seeing you again.

I came to Ocean City, for the first time on a business trip from DC and a friend recommended I give this place a try. I was delightfully surprised by the wonderful experience. The rooms were very spacious and clean. I had a nice sized balcony with beautiful views of the bay. The bathrooms were also very clean. Best of all, I got wonderful customer service and they gave me excellent advice on things to do and places to eat. I am planning to return in a month and bring my family!

We spent three nights in this hotel on the top floor of the building in a room right on the side of the Coastal Highway. The size of the room was very decent, absolutely nothing to complain about there. It had a good size balcony though we didn't actually make use of that. The bathroom was again of a decent size. The bed was nice and spacious. Decent sized television in the room. Everything was in a decent state of maintenance. That about sums it up. We had a good deal on the price for the room too, perhaps because we were there before the start of the tourist season.
