The Lankford Hotel's claim to fame is that it is the oldest hotel in OC. It is on the boardwalk near 8th Street. We stayed in The Lodge, which is one of two other properties that fall under the Lankford umbrella. The Lodge is a separate structure, also very old, and located about 50 yards away, and one building back-... More

Very nice hotel. The staff is exceptionally kind and accommodating. Good location on the boardwalk. The hotel is very clean and quiet. It has two oceanfront porches that have beautiful ocean views. I would highly recommend staying at the Lankford!

Stayed here for two nights with my wife. Had a wonderful time!! Place was super clean and quite. We kinda like to keep to ourselves and had no problems with other guests or the staff. Staff was very pleasant and kind. Would definitely recommend staying here and we definitely will be next time!!

Probably one of the best experiences at a hotel in OC. We booked a standard room with a king bed and we were upgraded to a Ocean Front room upon arrival. The room was a bit smaller then we are used to but it was perfect. The view was great but didn't have a balcony but that's fine. The bathroom... More

We just stayed here for a quick overnight, but it was lovely! The porches with rocking chairs are great, the young man who checked us in was so sweet! The location is awesome if you want to be on the boardwalk. We just had a double room, which only had a bed and one chair, so you wouldn't want to... More

This is a very nice older hotel. It is really three (or more?) properties that close to each other. I stayed in The Lodge with my wife and daughter. The room was clean and nice but a bit on the smallish side. The room had a big closet that was useful for storing suitcases, Boogie boards, etc.. It was an... More

We had original reservations at a nearby hotel but due to a mix up we had to get a room for the night here. And I'm so glad we did!! Very beautiful and homey feel about this place. It is well kept and the rooms are decently spacious. Very quiet and peaceful stay. It offers breakfast which is nice because... More

Recently stayed in this Historic Hotel on a short visit to Ocean City. The Location couldn't be better. You walk out the front door and off the porch and you are on the boardwalk! Across the boardwalk and you are on the Beach! It is an Historic Hotel, so you should expect as much in your room and the decor!... More

We have stayed here for years in the Sea Robin II which is a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath apartment in a cottage. It has front and back porches with great ocean and beach views. This is a wonderful old fashioned family hotel and apartment property. Washer and dryer are in the unit and bath towels are available everyday if needed.... More

Why do I Love the Lankford? As a kid my family had a beach house, old, antiques, small rooms, small bathroom. What it did have was family. The Lankford Hotel is like that. You feel like it is your beach house where you and family can come together, spend evenings on the porch or living room (lobby), kids can come... More
