This is our second stay at the Sahara and it was great. It's definitely not one of the higher end hotels but definitely one of the best "budget" motels we've stayed in Ocean City. We've actually stayed at quite a few in the very close vicinity which were very close in price. The Price + Location = very enjoyable stay. The price is one of the lowest and you can pretty much walk to everything, the beach, boardwalk, lots of restaurants, etc... We got clean towels and garbage removal daily but didn't ask for anything else. We stayed in the tower building (we stayed in the West bldg last time) and even got a small glimpse of the ocean from the balcony in between buildings. We were in the pool alot which was for the most part clean. No problem finding parking. I also loved that you could open the windows in the bathroom and near the sink, which alot of motels you can't do. The beds were pretty comfortable, not hard like some hotels we've been to. I gave it a four because of cleanliness, the bathroom could have been a little cleaner when we got there and the pool could have been cleaner. Also the people upstairs sounded like a heard of elephants walking back and forth and slamming doors. Between the ending of senior week and the dew tour there were lots of rowdy teens. But we didn't stay in the room much and the kids didn't care about the pool so all had a great time. We come to OC at least once, if not twice every year and are always on a budget. We will definitely stay here again.
