My son and his wife rented a 3 bedroom Lanai Suite at the Flanders in August. They were there for a week, we went for 5 days. The suite was 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. The layout was odd because for 2 of the bedrooms, you had to walk down a few steps so beware what you rent if you have kids who may fall down the steps or elderly who have problems with steps. The place appeared to be well outfitted and clean. Beds were comfortable. The sliding patio door led to a huge outside area all fenced in with tables and chairs and chaises so you could sit outside - but you couldn't really spend time out there because the noise from the amusement park on the other side of the fence was astounding. And it went on until 11 or 12 midnight. The lights shown in through the drapes which you had to pull to help with the noise and light abatement. The kitchen was really tiny with very little storage. For the price they paid, I'd say it was pretty much a ripoff. Yes, I know folks go for the boardwalk, the beach, etc. but this was even a bit much for them, I think. Son complained that they should have gone elsewhere but DIL wanted to be near the beach (which we only went to once in the 5 days I was there). The hotel pool was part of the deal and it was great. We took everyone (10 people) for dinner at Emilys Ocean Restaurant for their Prime Rib night on Tuesday and it was great! The Prime Rib was huge and cooked perfectly and the Marscapone Cheesecake was heavenly. I think I'd like the hotel much more than the Lanai Suites but I did like the fact that they were on the ground floor and easy in and out. Parking was horrendously priced - $15 per day at the lot across the street. Probably won't be back to Ocean City anytime soon. We live in Florida and our beaches are much nicer and for the price, I think you could go to Florida and have money left over! I'm including the use of the hotel pool and the restaurant experience in my rating (restaurant will be reviewed separately). If you are thinking of going to Ocean City, look around - surely you can find something less expensive with less noise - maybe a block or two away - better than this noisy place.
