This is the second time I've stayed at the Commander Hotel, and their remodeled rooms over last year's are nice, and we appreciated them. We got an oceanfront room on the 3rd floor. Overall the room was good - nice bathroom, and two above average (for hotels) 42 inch flat-screen TVs. The cleanliness was good, however some corners seemed as... More

Pool and outside area need to be renovated/fixed and also kept cleaner. The room was very nice and a great location on the boardwalk. Not very different from the Jersey Shore and the hotel very pricy. I didn't need to drive 4 hours to have the same experience as NJ shore. People in Maryland in general were not friendly.

I thought the service and cleanliness were excellent. I liked having an outdoor and indoor pool. The staff was very friendly and professional. The room layout was nice giving privacy between the bedroom part and the living area. The balcony was a nice size too.

We liked our ocean front view, the decor was on point and the staff was very nice. Directly on the boards, this place is fantastic. The pool was great, I wish it opened earlier for those without kids. It would be nice to enjoy a quiet morning swim. The water pressure in the room could be better and parking can... More

Our overall stay was really good. The staff was nice, the rooms were generally clean, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The rooms were a little pricey. We didn't use the pools or laundry facilities.
