I was traveling with my elderly mother, and the staff was friendly, helpful and attentive. They sent a rubber tub mat to our room for the bathtub so my mother wouldn't slip in the shower. The people at the front desk were great about recommending places to eat and shop. They recommended a small jewelry shop on the boardwalk called... More

We've stayed here for our family summer vacation the past several years and have always had a good experience. The hotel is in northern Ocean City, just a few blocks south of the MD-DE line which means you're far away from the boardwalk and bars but just across the street from the ocean. There are lots of close restaurants and... More

We stayed at the hotel in the first week of September. It was very busy and still the whole 'hotel machine' ran very smoothly. Especially the breakfast area was a pleasant surprise: very clean buffet, clean tables, always a very nice lady filling empty trays and coffee cans. Also the pool area was always tidy and clean. I would definitely... More

We stayed here on a very busy summer weekend. We had to do some juggling around with our reservations and SHAWN at the front desk was so helpful to us. He answered our questions on the phone, and said he would work on our reservation issues (merging two separate reservations) and sure enough when we arrived, he had it taken... More

We stayed here for about a week during the end of August and were very impressed by this hotel. We booked on very short notice and still got the exact type of room and floor we requested. The park and bay view from our room was beautiful. The king suite was spacious and included a small kitchen area, refrigerator, microwave... More

Although I've never been to Ocean City, MD, I knew that this hotel would be good because I always stay at them being I'm a Priority Club Member. First, I don't know where reviewer, Tonyal506 stayed, but it couldn't have been here because the location is 1.5 blocks from the beach! Even better, you leave your car at hotel for... More

I stayed here last week and can honestly say I have nothing negative to say about the hotel. Only positive thoughts. Checked in a little early and this wasn;t a problem as I had requested it and my room was ready so this was a plus. Staff were all very nice and very accomodating. The pool was on the small... More

My 13 year old daughter and I spent 4 nights (Sunday 8/24 to Thursday 8/28) in Ocean City, MD. Our first time in Ocean City. There are only two negative things I have to say about our stay. First, is the free breakfast and it has nothing to do with the overall quality of food. It's free, why blast it?... More

We pick hotel cause their reviews were good. We got there around the check in time on Friday-August 29, 2014. The staff were NOT friendly at all. They gave us a room that did not accommodate my family. I asked them for a different room and they would not give me another room. They gave us a conjoining room. You... More
