“Loved the beach club!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Started going here eleven years ago and every year we always went back and stayed at the Beach Club. It was a family tradition. Yes it's pricey but you stay at a cheaper place you get what you pay for. The location is unbeatable, of course, and love the fact that there is a nice, clean pool. The food is great at the restaurant, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The entire hotel is a nice little place. Haven't been able to get to Ocean City in over six years and will be going back for the first time this year so I am looking forward to staying at the Beach Club again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

After cancelling a reservation at the Ocean Front Motel, we decided to check availability for the Beach Club Hotel. Fortuantely it was available and we checked in. The rooms were very attractive and clean. They look like the photos posted on the website. The staff was very accomodating. Ample parking and great location - right off the boardwalk. We did not use the heated pool but several families did and were having a great time. The location is such that if you need to return to your room, it is a short walk from the 13th Street beach.. Like the fact that only hotel guests can access the property - you need to swipe your room key to get into the hotel after dusk. (I know this is not fail proof) There were two bike racks for us to lock up the rented bikes as well as a bicycle storage room. The hotel has a restaurant with moderate prices for breakfast and lunch. It was a great getaway weekend - it had a rocky start after dealing with the clerk at the Ocean Front and his scamming us out of our deposit (the Ocean Front photo on their website of the room is not what the room looks like- We were treated much better at the Beach Club - another plus was there were no bugs in the bed like we experienced at the Ocean Front. We will definitely return to this hotel.

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!
