“GHS Class of 1957 55 Year Reunion Review of The Flanders. Ocean City, NJ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Everyone who attended our 55 year high school reunion on Oct. 10, 11 and 12 has done nothing but rave about The Flanders Hotel...the suites, the staff. the food, everything. The rooms were quite spacious; the staff friendly and helpful, especially Karen Bergman; the Garden Room and the Ballroom were beautifully decorated; the food was superb! We HIGHLY recommend The Flanders to anyone who is planning a special event or is traveling to Ocean City, NJ.

Room Tip: All of The Flanders suites were great!

I've been visiting The Flanders for the past 10 years....and it's always wonderful!!! We love hearing, seeing and exploring the amusement park, shops, the beach and the boardwalk!!! The charm and elegance of this Historic Hotel is fantastic! We always request room 817, it's a one bedroom and extremely comfortable and it is decorated with historic photos! Love the room service too!!!!

Room Tip: Room 817 is Ocean View instead of Ocean Front, but it is less expensive!!! you still have the view o...

As the title indicates, the biggest selling point is its location on the Boardwalk right in the middle of all of the "action" (sorry, Ocean City is a "dry" town).
Pros: parking is included in the room cost, as is a number of beach tags (this practice may be unique to NJ - you have to pay for access to the beach in most locations). You are steps from the shops, rides and restaurants and of course the beach itself. The rooms are reasonably sized and the "ocean-front Kings" have a separate bedroom with king bed, TV, large closets. Rooms have a small kitchenette with a table that seats 6 (or more if you are friendly), with a queen sleeper sofa and chair that folds out into a kid-sized bed. On-premises coffee shop and restaurant. Outdoor pool.
Cons: Rooms are not cheap during the season. Lots of competition for the elevators especially on weekends when guests are checking in and out. The hotel is also a popular venue for weddings, reunions and similar parties, so can get a little noisy on Friday and Saturday nights. The seating area for the pool can fill up quickly - many guests "claim" a chairlounge with a towel and then depart for a few hours.
Bottom line - if you place a premium on convenience, this is the place to stay in OC. If you don't mind walking a few blocks (laden with beach gear, or with a cranky child after a long day at the beach or night on the rides), you can get a lot more for your money.

Room Tip: Ocean Front kings are the largest (and the priciest of the regular rooms) but the view itself is not...

Just last week I attended a business function at The Flanders, an elegant older hotel on the Ocean City boardwalk. The food was extremely good, the conference room was comfortable, and the staff was efficient & pleasant. It would be a wonderful place for a wedding, with a large parking lot and lots of rooms for guests to stay. Ocean City is a dry town but alcohol is allowed for private parties.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view if possible.

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.

Room Tip: The Lanai Suites are very, very noisy.

My family and I recently stayed in the Penthouse of the Flanders hotel and I can't begin to scratch the service at how amazingly, wonderful it was for our entire family! From the ease of parking, to service with your luggage, to the accomodations of having our room cleaned when it was convenient for US, to the views, etc. etc. etc. Every staff member we encountered was extremely courteous and always had smiles on their faces. Our beds were comfortable and the rooms were spacious. My children had lots of room to play and enjoy themselves too! The location is SOOOO conveniently located right on the beach and boardwalk-we never had to move our car! All around a wonderful time-thumbs up to the Flanders Hotel!

Room Tip: Penthouse...ALL THE WAY!!!! It's huge, comfortable, the decor is out of this world! Couldn't...

My husband and I stayed here with my Aunt and Uncle for the weekend. We stayed in a small suite, with a bedroom and a pull out sofa. The pull out sofa was more comfortable than I was expecting, or maybe it also had to do with the fact that we were so exhausted each night and had no trouble falling asleep! The rooms are decorated beautifully, with a small kitchen, nice sized bathroom, living room and even a dining room area. Nicer than my own apartment! It was nice and different to be able to sit around the "living room" at night and watch TV before bed, instead of usually sitting on beds. The hotel has a side entrance that leads right to the board walk. You are just steps away from the beach!
