“Many Happy Returns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We began staying at the Sea Bay about three years ago for business and were pleasantly surprised at how welcome we felt and the cleanliness of the facility. (We stay about 6-8 times a month during the summer season and 4 to 6 a month during the winter) With two buildings (We have stayed in both) you can either get a nice ocean view for sunrise or a beautiful view of the sunset over the bay. We have business in Ocean City and regularly stay at the Sea Bay because of it's central location that allows us to go north or south in OC, with easy access from Rt. 90. The staff are exemplary and cater to all of our needs including holding reservations when we were running late, providing us preferred rooms when available, and making sure our stay is as pleasant as possible. Showers in all rooms are high pressure and feel great after a day at the beach which is less than a block away. We always feel safe, secure and welcome at the Sea Bay!

Room Tip: Rooms in Building 2 face the bay, beautiful sunsets,

This was our first trip ocean city Maryland and we didn't know anything about the area..booked our trip from reservations.com...it was an older hotel but it was clean and the staff was very nice...observed the staff always being busy cleaning or checking the pool...the pools were very nice but not overly big so was very nice for my son...wish it have been closer to the ocean but was within walking distance and our room had a really nice view of the bay...very centrally located...

Room Tip: bay view rooms are quieter....

My husband and I discovered this place 3 years ago. We now come and stay about three times a year. The entire staff is very friendly and helpful. So helpful in fact last summer they helped us in the process of buying our home! The value is amazing and location is about as central as it gets. This year we brought friends with and they will be back! They loved the crew and the place itself. Sea bay feels like our home away from home at the shore.

Thank you for your recent reply on Tripadvisor. We appreciate your continued patronage, and while every Sea Bay guest is important, our Repeat Stay Guests, like yourself, tell the real story. You would not come back unless you had a good experience, and it appears that we have done a good job. Thank you for giving us this opportunity. I look forward to meeting you on one of your future trips.

I stay at sea bay 10 - 15 nights a year. In the winter, for business. In the summer for vacation. This hotel is clean, well maintained, safe, comfortable, with all the usual amenities, and it is fairly priced. But the best thing about it is the management and staff. These people will bend over backwards to help you whatever you need. They make you feel like family. I would never stay anywhere else in ocean city.

Great staff! Great room, the showers are awesome!! The cost vs. other hotels, I have been thru many a hotel over the years, business wise, this place has it. The SeaBay's location in OC is perfect, middle of town, easy access and parking for guests was close and well lit. The place was clean and the pool was crystal clear!

Great little café downstairs, prices very reasonable and the food was good!! The Hotel Manager even went out of her way to make sure my accommodations were all in order. The place was busy, but the staff was on it!! Nice folks. The coffee makers are easy to use and mine was clean! That's a biggie for me! I see film or other garbage in the coffee maker...I take it to the desk...not this time!!

It was an exceptional experience!!

You can bet SeaBay my new and only stop when in OC!! It just makes sense!

Room Tip: The main building is good for business or families, bay side is best for couples, smaller rooms and...

Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your great comments. Thank you also for recognizing our fine staff of employees. They work hard this time of year, so it's "nice" to get a little pat on the back! Our employees do a great job and I will pass along your comments to them.

My softball team of 12 players stayed in the Sea Bay Hotel fathers day weekend for a tournament. While it was centrally located and reasonably priced, it was also: dirty, dingy, old, smelly, lacking service. Specifically, the room smelled as it were treated with too much pesticide, the inside of the building had the feel of a dungeon, halls and common place needed cleaning. Thankfully, we only stayed 2 nights. My 11 year old daughter said "this hotel is a 10 on the creepy scale". No maid service, when I mentioned this to the front desk the response was "did you have a DND sign out?" I gave them every opportunity to rectify the situation but the employee just said "sorry". No offer of we will send some one up, I am very sorry for that inconvenience, how can we make it up to you, just a shrugging of the shoulders. Better choices exist. This was by far the worst hotel in OCMD I have stayed at.
