“Only ok, better places in town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

My family and I stayed in the Beach Club Hotel for a long weekend in September, after Labor Day. My father liked the motel, better than other places we'd stayed in Ocean City. The benefits of this motel include balconies for the hotel rooms, enclosed hallways, plenty of drink and snack vending machines, a nice location right on the boardwalk, and a secure entry to the hotel from the boardwalk.

I found the motel to be dark and dreary. As one of the more expensive motels on the beach, I feel like the decor and amenities should be much better. It's location alone doesn't give enough reason to be more expensive than other places near the beach, like its sister motel the Impala Island Inn. Its restaurant was nothing special, nor was its pool. Although the Impala Island Inn doesn't have balconies or enclosed hall, I much preferred that motel. It seemed lighter and a tad more up to date.

The family has been going to Ocean City Beach for over 14 years. Stayed at a few places early on but for the last 12 years have been at the Beach Hotel. Nice rooms, clean pool and restaurant right on the boardwalk. Close to all attractions, church right up the street, bicycle rentals across the street, and great staff. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Book early for the summer months.

The reviews were very good for this resort so my husband and I decided to spend a weekend here. What a disappointment. Originally I was going to book two rooms for next summer for a week but decided I better look at the property before booking it. This place was a real dump and I could not wait to check out. The parking lot had a horrible odor - it smelt like trash. Check In was fine - our room was ready at 1:00PM and we did not have to wait until 2:30 to check in. The room also had a very bad smell. The room was so small and definitely needs to be updated. Do not get a City View Room if you choose to go here. You will look out to a smelly parking lot.
We tried the Restaurant attached for breakfast and the food and service was very good.
The location however is great - right on the boardwalk and steps away from the beach.
This is one hotel I will never stay at again but it could have been worse if we booked it without seeing it for next summer. This hotel is also very very expensive. Beware if you book this hotel.

We have discovered the cause of the odor in the parking lot and we have resolved this problem. We are very sorry that it was you, a valued guest, who had to bring it to our attention.

Been staying here for about 10yrs. I would not stay anywhere else in OC. The location cant be beat. The cafe has delicious food....especially the breakfast!! Constant cleaning from the staff. The pool size is perfect. I always book an ocean front room, but this time I booked Ocean Front and Boardwalk Front. Wonderful, as usual!

First let me say the price complainers below, you are ON THE BOARDWALK and at the best beach 12th st. The place is crazy clean, i saw workers constantly cleaning the pool, windows, out door shower etc. But a little money upgrading the rooms and the AC oh went it was dead sun on the south side our room fried. The AC needing complete removal. But overall maid service excellent and the pool was awesome! The Elevator is very very scary...

We rode bikes for 1 hr. & when we returned, the room was already made. Housekeeping was superb. Restaurant excellent for breakfast. However, for the $256 nt. rate we expected thicker than paper thin walls. Can't afford the inner sections. The "balcony" & the street with noisy trucks were separated by a small patch of grass on ground level.
