My husband and I just stayed here for Sunfest weekend. I definitely recommend this place!! It's nothing fancy, but it's clean, the staff is super friendly ( especially the owner/manager), it's cozy/comfortable and has basically everything you need. I don't know how well my kids would do here, since the room is on the smaller side, but for a weekend...

Stayed here with my kids for a weekend away. As previously stated the front desk staff was warm and welcoming and willing to help make your stay as pleasant as possible. Complimentary tea and coffee are available throughout your stay. Our room while slightly dated was clean and roomy. With 2 full/queen size beds, 2 tables (1 w/seating for 4...

Great hotel. Staff was friendly, location was great, hotel was clean, and the kitchen great for cooking! If you like your coffee strong, I'd recommend bringing a coffee pot and coffee. Also a tip for the wonderful Maids. I will definitely stay again!

We had everything needed to have a very low budget get away! The kitchenette provided all the necessities needed to eat breakfast and lunch in our room. We were such a short walk to the beach, we could leave the sand and surf for a quick bite to eat before heading back. The pool was clean and comfortable temperature. I...

We stayed here the Thursday night of cruisin weekend. When I booked the room, it was much cheaper than most of the other hotels in the area. Our room was tucked in a hallway and it helped buffer the noise of the hot rods. The rooms had newly tiled bathrooms, recent newer carpeting, new bedspread and curtains. The bed was...

This is a decent, no-frills place to stay at the beach. The rooms were clean and contain everything you need. The place was surprisingly quiet (I say that because it's right off Coastal Highway). Worth looking into for a place to stay in O.C.

If you're looking for a no frills place at the beach this is it. And I don't mean that in a bad way at all. There's nothing fancy about the Shangri La but it's clean, affordable and the owners/managers are incredibly nice and friendly. The rooms aren't the biggest but that's ok, you're at the beach, you're not supposed to...

This is not a fancy hotel/resort. This is not an oceanview hotel/resort. It is a perfect little motel on the main strip of Ocean City. It is a couple of miles from the Boardwalk on a quieter stretch of the strip. There are several restaurants, gas stations and other shops within an easy walk or the bus is right there...

Our family has been visiting the Shangri La Motel for the past 20+ years. Whether it's an overnight stay or a week at the beach, we love the Shangri La Motel for their family-friendly atmostphere, clean efficiency-style rooms (complete with full refrigerator, oven, stove and microwave), and friendly staff. Our beach items are always safe right outside our door at...

I would say that I was pleasantly surprised with the location and the amenities the hotel provided. From the pictures on the website I was a bit nervous and not sure what to expect. I will say that I was surprised. The hotel is small and most rooms overlook the pool which is nice. It is about a block walk...

“ask for a room that does not face coastal highway it can get a little noisy in the evenings”

“Most rooms overlook the main strip so the only difference is the floor. 3rd floor for quiet. 1st floor for convenient access to the pool.”

“Only view this hotel offers is of coastal highway”

“There are no elevators in this motel. There are only three floors. For the elderly I would suggest getting a first or second floor unit only because of carrying luggage up the stairs. There are several rooms that did not have a view, so make sure you are aware of the location of your room.”
 of 5 bubbles LBPookiegirl, Jul 2, 2014 | Read review
“Not sure which floor/room would be best particularly to alleviate noise from Coastal Hwy. Also, would not recommend more than 3 to a room as there is little counter/storage space for beach items. We noticed that families staying on the first floor left their beach buckets/shovels, towels, swimsuits, and beach chairs out front of their rooms.”
