“One of the best of MB's Slim Pickins'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I've been to MB 5 times this year while planning a family wedding and have previously stayed at the Marriott, Mariott Oceanwatch Villas and Sheraton Convention Center. It amazes me that there are no 5-star hotels or condos in MB. Personally I think MB could really improve its image if they would offer more luxurious accommodations. This time we stayed at AOC and I rented three rooms: a 2-bedroom OF corner unit, a 1-bedroom OF King and a 1-bedroom OF Double. All of the rooms were nice and all offered exceptional views. Our rooms were between floors 9 and 17. My 2-BR was rented thru VRBO and was much cheaper than the price paid for the 1-BR's thru Oceana Resorts (which is the hotel directly). We loved the corner unit and had views from every room. The 1-BR Double offered lots of sleeping alternatives for larger groups, since it has a sleeper sofa and murphy bed. The girls said the murphy bed was very comfortable and much easier to handle than having to pull out the sofa bed. As many other reviewers have mentioned, the parking situation is a big drawback. I have no problem walking the short distance from the garage to the hotel, but there were 2 things that drove me nuts. One is that you have to park on the 3rd floor or above of the garage because valet gets floors 1 & 2. This doesn't sound like that big of a deal until you realize that there are '1/2' floors, so you go up and up and up until you reach the 3rd floor. The turns are narrow and an accident just waiting to happen. Secondly, there is no covered walkway from the garage to the hotel, so in the pouring rain we were making trips back and forth. Valet parking is offered at $12/night, but it was always so crowded in that area that we just didn't want to deal with it.

I was concerned about the rumors of bumper to bumper traffic this time of year, but it really wasn't an issue. Also, the beaches had lots of people, but not enough to spoil my enjoyment of them. AOC pools were nice and offered variety for the adults and children as well. The location of AOC was convenient to everything, and you could walk to Starbucks, Ben & Jerrys, a southern cooking restaurant , a seafood restaurant, etc. There is a Starbucks inside of AOC, but every day they seemed to be out of something and on one day they offered you the choice of buying or not buying the bakery items in the case since it had fruit flies in it. Surprisingly, everyone in front of me went ahead and purchased the food. More daring than I would have been.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay at AOC if I ever return to MB. But our wedding event is over, and I can't really see myself returning. There are lots of beach locations in much prettier settings. This was a great place for a destination wedding though, and the guests all had a great time.

Room Tip: Get a corner oceanfront unit if available. The views that surround you are beautiful.

We just returned from a five night stay at Anderson Ocean Club. My husband , myself, twenty yr old daughter and her best friend. We had a corner unit with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two balconies.One of the balconies was huge and wrapped around the corner to give ocean front and side view and the other was off their bedroom with a side view. Two queen beds in their room and a king in ours all three very comfortable. Can't say enough good things about this room. Clean, very spacious, comfortable beds, and very beautifully done. We had everything we needed plus more! Staff was very friendly and helpful. We knew before going that you had to walk a block to get to parking garage which was not a bad walk at all. The free putt putt during the day was nice but we didn't get much use of that since during the day its hot and that's when we were on the beach. The only negative is the pool area is not as impressive as the hotel is. Other than that we had a wonderful stay! I would recommend this place for a nice stay at the beach!!!

Room Tip: We loved the corner unit because it gave us a bigger balcony, actually one huge balcony and a smalle...

The AOC is a very nice hotel and we had a great room overlooking the ocean. Clean rooms and very comfortable beds. My daughters played in the pools and on the beach everyday and loved it. The pools are rather small, but clean and warm. Fireworks on Wed. from the beach were an added bonus.

We had a very small studio, clean and neat but no extra space. Just enough room for bed, small table, and 1 chair. Very small balcony, barely held 2 people sitting down. Loading/unloading area very congested, had to park a block away and carry luggage back and forth. Facility was well maintained, staff was helpful and friendly. Larger rooms (2-3 bedrooms) were much larger and better. Location right on the beach and good.

A very unhappy experience that I don't want to happen again. The alley rooms are not of good value for a Hilton Property. You can't make or receive cell phone calls fro your room. No restaurant or food served on property and pool bar not of good quality. recommend you stay elsewhere on your vacation with HGVC.

Our room had an old bed that the hotel tried to improve by throwing an egg create cushion on top. Had a sore back for days after weekend. Parking can be a challenge. You either have to use the valet or walk a block to the parking deck. Overall the hotel and room was very clean. Our problem was all in the bad mattress.

Overall the Anderson is a very nice place. The place is very clean. The rooms are nicely decorated. The views from our balcony were wonderful. Everything in the room worked. The only major complaint we had was the beds are badly in need of replacement. We both would wake up several times a night in the middle of our king size bed due to the sagging mattress. We lodged our complaint only to be told maintenance would check it out. They never got back to us. The next day we were told that many guests had the same complaint and nothing was done. Parking to load/unload was inadequate. Valet parking was $12 a day. Parking garage was a street over from the hotel but not too far to park yourself. Had problems getting the tickets we ordered through the hotel. They did not have them on the property and kept telling us they would get them. In the end we had to order them directly from vendor and request a credit from the hotel.
