Our first impression of our room was to giggle at the wood paneling and the 80s looking bedspreads. That aside, as we stayed the week we really enjoyed the people and the property at Lankford. It's the oldest hotel in OCMD and it's got some really unique and beautiful features attributing to that. It's got an amazing location - right... More

We have been going to the Lankford for over 40 years. We have always loved it because it is right on the boardwalk and beach. The Lankford was featured on the tv show Hotel Impossible a few years ago. The family that owns it were looking for guidance on how to update and upgrade the hotel so it could compete... More

We stayed on the 3rd floor with a double bed (which is small for us). We spent most nights on the balcony... More

The rooms were very clean and... More

The hotel is right on the boardwalk. Most rooms have views of the beach. The price was good for what we got. There is a lounge area, which is very clean, nicely decorated and family friendly. Complimentary breakfast consisting of bagels, bread, pastries, coffee, and tea was served daily in the lounge from 7-10 am. The staff was friendly. The... More

If you're looking for a party atmosphere, keep looking. However, if you're looking for a nice, quiet place to call home for a few days, the Lankford may just be your place. We stayed in the "Wren" unit, where furnishings were simple but tasteful. Our unit was located toward the rear of the main building, but just a short 1... More

My group of old car buddies and I visited the Lankford in May 2016 for the Cruisin Ocean City event. We've been staying at the Lankford for this event for probably 7-8 years. It is an absolutlely great place to stay. It's the oldest hotel in Ocean City having opened about 1924 and has recently been updated but it still... More
