I didn't have high expectations for this hotel because I knew it was an older property. It does not have some of the modern conveniences but makes up for it in charm. I had a fairly small room with a queen size bed. While the room was small it was clean and freshly painted. I had no issues with AC... More

We prefer family run classic hotels very much over "big box" ones, and we are so very happy that we got to stay in this landmark. After season, the pricing was quite reasonable, especially considering we had an ocean front room. Everything about this place is so comfortable. The balcony overlooking the boardwalk, the sitting area in the lobby, the... More

We stayed this past week in the Lodge building and overall it was a really great trip! The parking lot wasn't extremely tight like most, the lodge is right off the boardwalk. We stayed on the top floor and you could see the beach from our window. The room was really clean, we always had plenty of towels and I... More

I have stayed at the Lankford many times. This is a family owned and run business. It is right on Ocean City's boardwalk and for families or for anyone wanting a safe, clean, convenient, reasonable, and friendly location, this is it! When my kids were little, we rented various of their apartments. I could relax on the beach, knowing my... More

this hotel is a family owned budget hotel, it's more like a bed and breakfast. room is not big, but nobody stays in the room. warm environment, old but clean, right adjacent to the board walk! at the end of 8th street, very convenient to anywhere.

We were two families visited during the Labor day weekend. It is a family run hotel and I think it is one of the oldest hotel on Ocean City boardwalk. The staff is really supportive and helpful. Initially we were given two separate rooms. But on request, they gave us one big two bedroom/ 2 bathroom without charging anything. I... More

My wife and I stay here during the 'off season' for a pre-Christmas get away. Though the hotel is closed and has no full time staff, Mary and Brian and more than accommodating and provide that little personal touch of service that make for a more than perfect extended week end.
