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.

Thank you! We are very proud of our co-workers and we do pride ourselves on giving great service! We are surrounded by great restaurants and shopping and the shuttle takes you the 1.5 miles to the beach and boardwalk! Hope to see you all again soon! Sincerely Annemarie Dickerson Owner More

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

Thank you! We would love your family to spend the last big weekend with us as you were with us at the beginning Memorial Day weekend...did the summer really fly by so quickly? The indoor and our door pools have been very busy this summer with the extreme heat and hopefully we will end the summer with another beautiful weekend... More

My family has been making Ocean City our small vacation spot for 5 years now. We usually stay in another hotel but decided to give FSK a try. It got of to a bad start when I tried to initially book the room. The website was advertising one price however each time I went to check out it changes to... More

Thank you for your honest comments. I am wondering if the rate issue you had was the Budget Special rate as you indicated you received a $10 gift card. On this rate you stay for 4 weekdays and get the 5th free. It shows up as showing the 20% off per night so the guest can see the discount (Example... More

This was a great resort to stay at. The rooms were very clean, the amenities for our children were wonderful! We also really enjoyed the shuttle that would take you to and from the beach / boardwalk! We would definitely stay here again. The only complaint we would have is that the noise from the other guests in their rooms... More

Had a good time. Place is awesome for kids. Rooms were a little dated but cleaner then most hotels. Would never have to leave the resort if the food was better. That was the only downfall for our stay. Visited the diner for lunch on our first day and was very disappointed. The service was slow, the food was not... More

Thank you for you honest comments! We do believe in giving great service, product and value in all areas of our resort and it is disappointing when we do not hit the mark.

Great resort for children our kids loved the spray park and the indoor pool. We went once and never returned to the outdoor pool. It was really hot when we went maybe the lack of shade kept us away. The sun was brutal. Miniature golf course is great for 6 year olds. We stayed in the Ohio building second floor.... More

Thank you for taking the time to write! What a heat wave. In the twenty five years that my husband and I have been operating the Francis Scott Key Family Resort I can't remember a time when the heat was this extreme and continuous.

Our family traveled to FSK 8/7/16-8/12/16. We have three girls (5, 3 and 3). We stayed in a ranch style room which was perfect for the 5 of us. We absolutely loved our stay. There was so much to do.

Had a great time with family at the FSK. Great location in OC MD. Great venue, has nice clean rooms, great staff, outdoor and indoor swimming pools and hot tubs, a children's splash pool, basketball, mini golf, fishing hole, free shuttle to OC boardwalk and much more. A very pleasant experience from check in to check out.

We were worried about staying in west ocean city, but it was so close to the bridge that the location ended up being great. We drove to the beach and boardwalk but there is a shuttle to take you there as well. The pools-both indoor and outdoor were awesome. The room is a little dated but overall we were happy.... More
