“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

My family & I had a great time, desk staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were clean (we booked two) the pool sparkling clear and clean. We ate at the restaurant that was part of the hotel, the food was delicious. The hotel is perfectly located for just about all Ocean City attractions.
Will be going back next year!

Took advantage of one of their internet specials - one weekend night for an excellent price for beach block in peak season. The hotel was family-oriented. The room was surprisingly quiet at night. The desk staff was attentive and accommodating. I mentioned a needed repair at checkout and they were quick to jot it down. They went out of their way to voluntarily offer helpful little extras, like how to use their outside shower and stay in their lot after checkout, helping to make it a hassle-free weekend get-away. The attention to detail in cleanliness of the room was notable even though the room had older fixtures. The beds were comfortable. The pool was very clean and clear, with a 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 foot deep area roped off - the perfect depth for a young child. The negatives were a stained, worn rug (with a tape repair), and a slight room odor. Replace that rug and it would be a 5-star experience all around. Still, it is everything you want in a classic, beach block hotel and it is very convenient. We did not move the car all weekend, which is one of my definitions of a relaxing time. I want to come back again next summer!

Room Tip: Personally I do not like the fountain view side of the hotel as much since it is away from the main...

My husband and I wanted to take the kids for one last summer get-away. We heard wonderful things about Ocean City and wanted to check it out. The rates anywhere in the area are pricey but Pavillion was the least expensive I could find for an excellent location. Our room was a nice size and clean. We had views of the pool which I liked and both staff and other guests were very friendly. We never had to move the car once we parked because everything was walking distance ..boardwalk, beach, food store, shops, restaurants, etc. The restaurant on the premesis was good - would def go back. All in all we loved it so the following day we toured apartments and booked one for a week next summer. I cannot wait to go back! I definitely recommend the Pavillion and Ocean City -- perfect for families!!

This was our first trip to Ocean City and we were very pleased. The motel was typical of a seasonal shore motel..but the location was great with no streets to cross to get to the beach and boardwalk. Ocean City is a great town and our stay was great! Thanks

Room Tip: Pool view is the way to go

Stayed for two days with my girlfriend. Close to beach and other restaurants etc... Room needs to be updated and the walls are thin. Beach tags provided. Asked a female employee if there was an outdoor shower and she replied with a "no" but found out there was one. When arriving we barely could squeeze into our room because the cleaning maids wouldn't move their cart out of the way. The bed had a weird smell but was comfortable. Wi-fi worked well. Frig was nice and cold.

I just want to say our stay at the Pavilion was great. The room was clean, it had a nice carpet that was clean even with considering it is a beach town. Everything in the bathroom was white! The tile on the floor and wall was white and clean, even in the grout. The room was quiet all night, we didn't hear any outside noise. We stayed in the fountain room and enjoyed it. We had plenty of towels for baths/showers, but you will need to bring plenty of towels for the beach/pool because the humid air makes it hard for drying towels overnight. We will also pack a towel hanging rack with us for next year because we could've used one outside our door on the patio area for drying our clothes. The hotel does have a clothes line for use at the pool. And the outside shower and changing room was a nice touch to keep us from tracking sand everywhere. The internet was slower than we are used to, and we weren't able to stream videos, but overall we are really happy with our stay. We loved the pool, it was a great temperature and easy to swim with our 2 kids, not overly crowded. We noticed some sand at night, but the next morning it was clean... wonderful. We were about 1/2 block from the beach/boardwalk and we felt it was a great spot right at 8th st. We found parking to be easy and while we had to walk a little bit to the room, it wasn't bad. The air conditioner worked great, it was cool and dry inside. We enjoyed the breakfast at the restaurant, early bird special from 7-8 am is $1.99 for 2 eggs, 2 pieces of toast, and hashbrowns- great deal. We thought the staff at sign in and check out was friendly and helpful- we would stay here again!

let me start out by saying this hotel is QUIET at night! oh my goodness, i couldn't believe it was nearly sold out and i didn't hear a thing all night. a testament to the structure! and it was clean inside and out, very clean. new carpet in our room, it really is in a great location too, you are close to everything, and we really did not move the car once. a great location to bike or walk from for shopping or the beach or the boardwalk (all of which were also very nice). the staff was very friendly and helpful (and large in numbers! i couldnt believe how many people they have on staff to make things run smoothly!) i will say that they need some umbrellas for around the pool. there is zero shade and no relief for parents or grandparents who want to sit and watch the kids. there is a nice garden area with tables and umbrellas but not in safe "babysitting zone". nice shallow area for kids.
our room had a unpleasant odor near the door (think; diaper) but we only really noticed it when it POURED that night -could have been from rain soaking the floor, there was a sizable rot hole in the bottom of the door, attempting to hide behind trim. FAIL
as for the towel comment from someone above; we had more towels then we could shake a stick at, no one cut us off, they just asked for our room number and that was that. i could understand them noting which room had more towels - there IS a beach up the road and they probably lose more towels then they'd like to deal with..... like the keys and beach badges, makes you accountable. if your not stealing, who cares!
you should note, this is sort of a bare bones hotel; no shampoo or lotion here. and no tissues either. but there is free wi-fi!
i would stay here again, and more impressively my picky husband says he will too.
