Our visit was preseason so staffing was light however when available Jennifer and Sid and owners were very eager to make our stay a pleasing experience. Location and pricing could NOT be beat. parking during the high season may be a minor issue however John the owner tells me they do have an overflow lot not far away. Recently updated...

My husband and I stayed here for a few days and enjoyed our stay. We found this place by going over reviews on Tripadvisor so we thought we would give it a whirl due to the hotels we normally stay at were completely booked. The room was clean and the location was pretty good although walking the back to the...

Booked this place 6 weeks prior to traveling to OC. I frequent OC twice a year and have stayed numerous places. Considering we only use our rooms for sleep and a shower I look for 3 things...cleanliness, ac, and on site parking. We tend to go all over OC so having easy access to our vehicle is a must. We...

Booked this place for one night for a quick getaway to OC. This is a place to sleep at night, store your stuff, and not much else. But that is exactly what I expected. It's a basic little motel, but the room was immensely clean. Starbucks is right across the street and the beach and boardwalk is less than a...

We had planned an impromptu July 4 weekend at OCMD. It was tricky finding a place that would take our reservation without staying for the entire long weekend. The crystal sands worked with us and cut us a pretty good detail. Our room was very clean and the on site parking was fabulous. It was a short walk to the...

I wasn't expecting anything amazing when I booked here because I was just looking for a semi-inexpensive room for one night, but it was honestly very nice! When we first checked in, the girls were super nice and the office looked and smelled clean, which you don't always find at some places. The room was very spacious and very clean....

My family has been staying at Crystal Sands for over 10 years. It is one of the cleanest hotels in Ocean City, and less than a block to the boardwalk and beach. Bike rentals nearby as well as a number of restaurants. All of the staff is very friendly, and special requests are no problem. The rooms are clean, with...
