Princess Royale has beautiful spacious rooms that allow a visitor to prepare meals without leaving the hotel. The pool is large and has a relaxing atmosphere. The hotel has a restaurant and bar which offers a convenience to visitors who do not want to leave the complex.

Room Tip: Oceanfront is the best view

First time staying at this hotel and it was an excellent experience from check-in to check-out. I was allowed early check -in which I absolutely love. The room was immaculate, the hotel clean, the staff, bell hops, and houseskeeping staff all were friendly. The kids loved the pool area and so did I. Since it is enclosed and my room overlooked the pool, I could constantly keep my eye on them and watch them enjoy the arcade, go swimming, play pool,or ping pong. Easy access to beach with a great view from the atrium as well. Great place to stay, would recommend to friends with kids.

Room Tip: recommend if you have small children to call and request pool level room so no worries with balconie...

We stayed at the Princess Royale for a weekend getaway during the off season in late February. The hotel staff allowed us to check-in early which was a plus. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant throughout our entire stay. After check in my child immediately went for the pool. He loved it! I had to drag him out of the water after 4 hours. The room was very clean and had been recently upgraded (new bed, countertops, etc.). We had a room that was at pool walk out level which was wonderful as the whole family likes to swim. The pool area did get extremely crowded on Saturday evening as there was a sports tournament in town. I did not get to use the indoor hot tub or sauna due to the fact that kids were utilizing it, which was frustrating. Not the hotels fault - just bad parenting. We walked out to the beach several times a day which made it convenient. The refrigerators in the suites were a welcome plus. We were able to store beverages and snacks so we didn't have to eat out every meal. We will definately be back again!

Room Tip: Poolside room for a family. Oceanfront for those who would like it quieter.

This is my 2nd time staying at this hotel. Both experiences have been wonderful. The hotel and staff are wonderful. The rooms are very clean and spacious. It is a wonderful place to stay especially if you have kids. The Indoor pool is clean and great for the kids to have fun in. We are a family of 5 and would stay there again.

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions. Fabulous place, especially if you have kids. Pool Level rooms are great, however if you want something a little more quiet try the ocean front. Lisa, group sales is great to work with for a large group. Will continue to stay at this hotel.

There are cheaper places in Ocean City, but this is my go to location for hotels whether it be a family trip or a couples get-away. Note, there are 2 hotels, One is ocean side. One is bayside. I've stayed in the suites with jacuzzi , and the regular suites. The regular suites were nicer, bigger, more spacious... if you aren't into the jacuzzi thing, go for the suite!

The jacuzzi room I had at Oceanside resort was rather sad, the handle to the jacuzzi fell off, and the jacuzzi needed to be upgraded The jacuzzi room at the Bayside resort was cleaner and in better shape, however our overall room location left a lot to be desired for a romantic getaway. The balcony view was a dirty rooftop. But hey, a bottle of wine, darkness, love, and we didn't really care if the rooftop view was dismal. Walking distance to various eating places.

Oceanside resort has an indoor pool with noisy children. You will want to make sure you don't get a room that fronts the pool area, or has your balcony near the pool, unless you have kids and want to keep an eye on them! Ask for rooms higher up in the hotel floor level if you want some privacy away from kids. One thing I LOVED about this location was the midmorning and afternoon outdoor grassy area.... great drinks and live entertainment, while sitting in the ocean breezes and hearing the crash of the surf. You can't see the ocean while in teh lounge chairs due to the dune, but the sky, palm trees and breeze were all lovely.

The bayside resort is nice too. Check out the rooftop pool at sundown, and if you are nice to the staff, they will let you stay up there with a bottle of wine after the pool is closed!

Beds are great. Very comfortable mattresses, bleach fresh clean sheets/pillow cases. Plenty of towels provided, and extras given without a blink. Rooms were clean and spacious enough.

Room Tip: Get the rooms on the higher level if you want privacy if you staying Oceanside! Avoid the rooms...
