“Family Friendly Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Our family of four enjoyed this beachfront Ocean City hotel. Our room had a kitchenette and couch which made it much more pleasant for our family. There's both an indoor pool and outdoor pool, so in addition to the beach this hotel works well for off-season or even a rainy vacation. The rooms were a little dated, but clean. We appreciated the new white linens / duvets and that there weren't gross bedspreads. My only complaint was that there seemed to be a bit of sand in the room when we arrived - but I guess it might be next to impossible to get all the sand up off the floor at a beachfront hotel.

Room Tip: Get a first floor room if you want access right to the sand, get a higher floor if you want a better...

Just returned from a 2 night, Friday and Saturday night stay. We stayed in room 301, which is an Oceanfront, end unit. Very quiet, with an amazing oceanfront view. Like others have mentioned, it is an older hotel, with average amenities. Outdoor pool was very nice, did not use the indoor pool. Great beach access!
Pros: Great staff. very friendly and helpful. Location that is convenient to everything
Cons: Entire place needs a major renovation. New mattresses for the beds, new flooring! get rid of the carpeting
The room appeared to be clean, but the old and tired decor, gives the illusion that is is not clean.
Would I come back? yes!! The front desk staff are great, and special thanks to the Housekeeping staff who went out of their way to locate an article of clothing I left behind, and sent back to me!!

The room layout was great and the mattress seemed newer, but the comforter and sheet both has what looked like a blood stain The bathroom was DISGUSTING! The exhaust fan didn't work and the vent was covered in mold (clearly visible to housekeeping), the toilet bolts were also not secure so when you sat on the toilet it slammed against the wall when you got up. Behind the toilet was a very noticeable compact of blush that must have been dropped by the previous occupant and makeup went everywhere (again very obvious to me but housekeeping missed it). The bathtub also had sand in it as if it was never cleaned; there was no wash cloths upon my arrival and some toiletries were missing lending that my room was only have clean. When I told the front desk she simply said said "oh." In case a manager reads this it's room 409 - clean it!

My family and I just returned from our second trip to OC and our second stay at the Quality Inn Ocean Front. This is a small beach front property and as such has some issues, ie. Carpet, curtains, furniture could use some updating, no lifeguard, abundance of fake plants etc. However, for the price and the location, I consider the place a gem. The staff is friendly and were ready to accommodate us at every turn. The kids love the pools and the beach and I love the hot tub and the location. A couple of tips:
1. Try to book directly through hotel(use discount codes or AAA when booking), it will save you some headaches.
2. Ocean front rooms start with 01-16..example 101=first floor ocean view. The first floor efficiency units lead straight to the beach. End of the hallway rooms are quieter, close to the parking lots and again easier to access the beach. Atrium view is exactly that...however, the rooms at each end of the atrium do have a partial view of the ocean. Atrium rooms can be very noisy because they face the pool, the birds and there is constant guest traffic.
3. Bring heavy duty deep woods bug spray; the horse flies are merciless.
4. Like bbqing? There are grills right behind the outside pool!
5. There is a reading/playroom for those of you traveling with babies and the playground, although better suited for toddler is cute.
6. Hotel provides free laundry services(self service), just bring a small bottle of detergent.
7. Save yourself some $$$ stay in and cook breakfast or lunch. There is free coffee, herbal tea and fruit every day.
8. Want to spend $$$, try these fun-waterfront restaurants: BJs on the water, Seacrets, Fishtales and Dead Freddies...all good for adults and families.
Lastly...relax and don't get too frazzled about the little things.

Room Tip: See my review.

Recently stayed for 2 nights. There was a room ready when we arrived early so we checked in to find a clean room with a view of the atrium. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to have the mini kitchen at our disposal. The beach access was great and very convenient. We enjoyed the friendly staff. The exotic birds were a huge hit with our kids. Tina was very knowledgeable and willing to share the birds. At night, we were able to relax at the bar while the kids used the indoor pool. The Quality Inn made our mini stay very enjoyable and would definitely consider staying here on a return trip as the value for your money was worth it.

Room Tip: We stayed on the atrium side which is only accessible with outside stairs. Not a problem for us but...

We just got back from an adult get away. We spent most of the time at the bar and around the bar. The food and drinks at the bar where great. Melissa really loved the breakfast that the bartender Kate made for her this morning and the other bartender Kevin is one of the best bar tenders around. The front desk staff was great, Enjoyed the comic endeavors of the Jim he makes check in fun. The manager Tonya was very professional at all time and lara and kristy took of all our needs and took time out of the busy day to talk with us an make us feel welcome. We got room 136 was was an atrium view at the end of the hall. This room was very comfortable and quiet even thought it was right beside the bar. The hotel may not be a 5 star hotel but it is great family fun or an adult get away. The staff is what really makes this hotel truly shine

Room Tip: the ocean front side has a good view of the ocean the atrium view over looks the inside of the hotel...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Quality Inn Oceanfront. Right on the beach it was great for family while I attended an event at the convention center. The staff checked us in a few minutes early so there was time for an afternoon at the beach. The enclosed atrium area was really pleasant and I imagine a great retreat on a lousy beach day with an indoor pool and cafe/bar. The room was immaculate. Conveniently located for business and pleasure. Will stay again.
