“Third Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Like this basic beach hotel for the location a block from the beach. The room is a typical room and is just fine. Can walk or drive to Jimmy's for breakfast and right across the street is a great restaurant, Just Hooked. Go there after a hot day on the beach. Everything you need is near this motel. New owners are interested to make this motel a nice place to stay. I like staying here

Room Tip: Can actually see a partial view of the ocean on the third floor ocean side. Motel is in a great loc...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We love the fact that it is only 1/2 block to the quiet ocean beach. It's a great place to swim, walk, and enjoy the beach. The Fenwick Island community is for those looking for a quiet beach with lifeguards. You can drive to the boardwalks and other attractions when you wish. We have stayed here three times over the past several years.

As a young couple, we enjoy staying at the Seaside Inn. It is clean and the owners are very kind. The rooms are comfortable and we love the balconies! Great for drying towels used at the beach that is only a half block away! As it is one of the few hotels in the area, the beach has few people and is very clean. Also, there is some great restaurants across the road (Just Hooked & Warren's Station) and shopping (Seaside Country Store). We've now stayed here twice and will be back again in September! Thanks, Seaside Inn!

The owner was always around, and making sure things are getting done, very nice guy. The price was great, and it was clean and comfortable. On the ocean side, very short walk to the beach. I would stay here again.

We came down last weekend to watch the car show. This is great location; outside of all the noisy area but close enough to all the attractions and boardwalk. The price is very reasonable and the hotel rooms are very comfortable. The pool is a good attraction for families with kids. The beach is only a short walk away. There's plenty of restaurants around. I would definitely stay at Seaside Inn again.

The hotel is definitely a work in progress. Lots of construction going on. The king room was adequate but there was lots of street noise from the beach highway. For a budget hotel, it is okay, but I would not stay there again.

My daughter and I just stayed at this cute hotel with our dog. The owner was very friendly and personable, had coffee ready no matter what time of day for you and when we left he shared homemade baklava! Hotel is being renovated. Very quiet neighborhood with beautiful homes and conveniently located just a block from the beach and walking distance to Ocean City. Highly recommend this hotel.
