We couldn't believe what outstanding amenities this place has and for such a great price! We took advantage of the shuttle at night to go to the boardwalk. The shuttle runs frequently and it was easy to use. During the day we went to all 3 pools. The outdoor pool was my favorite and my son loved the splashpad. Its... More

Three pools, arcade, lovely place for children. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast on site a plus. Had an efficiency which was nice for meals. Bus to boardwalk was great. Nothing else to say but required to have 200 characters. Lol.

We just returned from our stay on 7/24. Where do I begin? We arrived early on 7/21. The lady at the front desk explained that our room was not ready but she will text me when it becomes available. We received a text within 1hr. We stayed in room 1516. It was big enough for my family of 4. It... More

We go every year, same time, same cabin. Love the amenities like: Shuttle Service, Pools (3), Café, Poolside Bar to name a few Have never stayed in one of the many different rooms (different layouts) but they look pretty nice. Housekeeping has always been very flexible with the hours to work around our erratic schedule. Super close to shopping, restaurants... More

I was pleasantly surprised to see the upgrades made at my favorite family resort. There are more chairs/tables available at the pools (indoor & out) the food menu has more options & their welcome guide provides great information about events going on during my stay. The pools & grounds are kept immaculate, the rooms are always spotless when we return... More

What a pleasurable stay! Clean rooms and sparkling pools. Helpful, pleasant staff. It's very family friendly, but if you'd like to have an adult beverage at the pool it's available. The location is away from the hustle and bustle of the boardwalk, but it's only a convenient shuttle ride away. The only disappointment was the Route 50 dinner located in... More

We have stayed at the Francis Scott Key many times and will again in the future. The staff is wonderful and there is a lot to do on site and it is a great location to explore the many things to do in and around Ocean City.

Made a reservation to stay here the weekend after Memorial Day weekend. The resort was not packed, which allowed us to take advantage of all the amenities without issue or waiting. Great service at the diner in the lodge. Loved the indoor pool. And the shuttle to the board walk was great for our daytime adventure! If we go back... More
