2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Came to OC with wife and two "tweens" for a vacation. We paid $190 a night, but I'm thinking we should have shelled out a little more for a nicer hotel. Pros: Clean, laid-back pool Beachfront location on the boards No bugs Cons: Very dodgy Wi-Fi Damp room feel with musty odor Nasty, stained carpet--absolutely unacceptable Rusty shower curtain pole...

Had a room with view and that was nice but make sure you reserve a oceanfront room or you will get the side view of the water. The side view is called ocean view room. This seemed to confuse people. There was one elevator which was hot and sooo crowded all the time. Took forever to get to our room.... More

Two nights/days stay with our two older teens. Professional welcoming friendly staff, who took care of any requests promptly, and we had one emergency during that they responded in a reasonable time, they were on it. First-timers in Ocean City, so that meant a lot to us. Free coffee always brewing by front desk, good eats at their restaurant, nice... More

Room was only half cleaned. Coffee supplies not re-stocked. No changing rooms like advertised - other than single stall bathroom. Restaurant food was poor, no bags for carry out & cash only. Single elevator took a long time to get to 5 floors. Front desk didn't know companies to call for food delivery.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It is our number one goal here to make sure all of our guest needs are being met. It seems we have falling short during your stay with us. I am very sorry that our front desk staff was not able to give you any information on food delivery places... More

I've stayed here many times over the years and love the convenience of being on the boardwalk but not in the crowds near the piers. They've painted the outside and remodeled the bathroom in the room we had. Other than that the place is starting to look a little tired. Will stay here again.

Good place to stay for a weekend with Kids. Great view of both the bay and the beach. It's a little small for a family of 5 to stay for a week and the wifi was non-existent. Other then that the staff was very nice and room was clean, beds we comfy.
