“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The Princess Royale is one of the best hotels in Ocean City, if not the best, and is made even more special by the fact that they are not part of a huge chain (at least I don't think so) and thus it has its own unique personality. I stay there once a month on personal business and my young kids and I enjoy the friendly and helpful staff, the conveniences (store, gift shop, pool, games, etc.) and of course the beach right out the door. Highly recommend!!

Room Tip: Ask for oceanfront, or pool view is a good second choice.

Every part of the experience was great. From reservations all the way to checkout. Very friendly staff. Clean. Tempur Pedic beds. My room was on pool level, 2nd floor. Was much quieter than I expected, which was great!! Pool and arcade games are closed after 11. Wish I was there longer! Will definitely stay again!!!

Room Tip: "Inside" rooms overlook the indoor pool area, which also has pool table and arcade games...

What a fun time for the family on a cold November weekend. Enjoyed the indoor pool, arcade area and hot tubs.
Very clean hotel and extremely friendly staff.
The atrium room we had was perfect and convenient for everyone to relax poolside
Can't wait to do this again real soon

Just returned from a another weekend and excellent customer service from Ms. Martesha Spencer and her staff at the Princess Royale Hotel/Conference Center in Ocean City Maryland. Martesha left no stone undone for the Masons and their guest during there four day annual conference. Starting with the bell men, staff at the front desk and servers in the restaurant they rolled out the red carpet and more. Martesha stayed late in the night greeting the large delegation of Masons from around the east coast of the U.S., Italy, Germany, Nova Scotia and Korea and personally checking the conference area to ensure that all conference needs were met over the five day period. I might add this was the off-season in Ocean City and I've never had a more relaxing weekend, this was my second visit to her hotel, and I'm planning to arrange an off-season 3 or 4 day stay in the coming months. I will definitely recommend Martesha's hotel to friends here in the Washington metropolitan area.

Room Tip: Ocean view from all rooms and easy access to Dover, casinos and other tourists resorts. Even when i...

This hotel has undergone remodeling in the recent past. From my perspective they paid attention to some of the most important items and so are a good vacation value. The entire property is non-smoking, a feature we really appreciate. There is a hint of cigarette smoke still lingering here and there, but it was very rare and so we could breathe easily here. The carpeting has been updated and so has a clean appearance. We were able to stay in an ocean view suite that was terrific, away from the craziness of the Boardwalk, overlooking the ocean, we enjoyed two nights of deep sleep on a very comfortable Tempurpedic mattress listening to the waves crash on the world-class sand of coastal Maryland. A terrific getaway for us, at a competitive price.

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms and suites are worth the extra - you feel like the ocean is all yours.

We stayed here in September. We had a great time! We had the cabana on the bottom floor. Outside our door was a tiki bar and live music!! Behind that was the ocean!!! What could be better? The only reason they did not get 5 star rating is the staff at the check in counter. I almost cancelled our stay because of this very rude young lady, but happily changed my mind. Comfortable and was affordable too.
