This will probably be deleted by the hotel so read quickly. I've stayed almost everywhere in ocean city over fifty years this was, by far, my worst experience. I was told on the phone i was being given a first floor room poolside. When i got there they showed me to a dingy, tiny room up the stairs. The room... More

The front desk was very nice and accommodating. I came with my boyfriend for fourth of July weekend and it was honestly just a place to stay. I wasn't too pleased with the bedding because there was a sh** stain on it so thankfully we brought all of our own blankets and sheets. the location was awesome however wasn't pleased... More

Spartan. That's a good word to describe this motel. The very basics. Nice tv. Tiny bathroom. No breakfast. Decent beds. Decent pillows. Decently clean. An ok place to stay if you're spending all your time at the beach. If you love the nicer amenities, stay somewhere else. The front desk folks range from super helpful and friendly to being bored...

Pictures shown when booking were very misleading. Put on level 4, no elevator on property. 1 key we were given didnt even work, so got locked out and had to wait to be left in. Pictures will show the rest, not to mention water leaked all over the floor from the shower. I will never stay there again.

We stayed here in May and it was terrible. The room rate was raised after we arrived, even though we had a confirmation. There was no heat in the room. Towels were ridiculously small, no hangers available, no guaranteed parking, no ice or ice buckets on premises, no tissues, no hook or towel rack, no working air conditioning, front door... More

It was a nightmare. At first everything seemed alright but after the first night I woke with several bites (NOT mosquito bites). The second night was even worse and woke up with more bites. Front desk did NOTHING offered NO help at all. Awful.

This is a hotel/motel that definitely caters to young party people. The rooms were filthy and filled with ants, another guests CEILING FELL, and the guests are ridiculously loud. Good for if you're into that sort of thing, but adults and families should stay elsewhere.

We havr stayed here many years and will continue to do so in the future. Highly recommended if you want to spend the majority of your money on your family and not... More
