The front desk was amazing! We were hesitant about booking a list minute stay at Ocean City and Shay was the first person I felt comfortable talking to about booking a room. She along with her coworkers were very friendly, hospitable and professional. The space was also affordable and clean, which is significantly important considering we’re still going through a pandemic. We had an amazing view of the bay, and all of our needs were met during the entire stay. Thanks so much and we will be back!

My wife and just returned from a 4 night stay here. Check in took place at near by Best Western due to Sea Bay having no front desk staff. First off the bay view was fantastic and we spent much time sitting on our balcony enjoying it. The room itself was tiny, one of the smallest I have ever stayed at. The coffee maker was one of those single cup models using pods the hotel had to provide, the coffee we brought was useless. The room itself was tolerably clean. However on our last day there housekeeping was a total no show. We were in and out so much that day it didn't sink in until late in the day they had never come. So on our last morning we had no clean towels or coffee. The hallway especially near the elevator always had strange odor. The doors are heavy and slam unless you are careful when you close them, meaning we were woke up at least a few times per night by the sound of slamming doors on our floor. Also, Sea Bay only technically has a pool and deck. Both are very small with only about half a dozen chairs on the deck and pool that is more the size of a wading pool. Put a few kids in it and you might as well forget about even going down there. The bed was king sized but curiously low to the floor and moderately comfy.
So if a inadequate coffee maker, tiny rooms, tiny pool and a little bit of noise is not an issue for you Sea Bay might be a good option for you.

Thank you for your candid feedback. We want to continually improve so your review is very important to us. It is true that we are short staffed across the board. Thank you for your understanding from a front desk and housekeeping standpoint. I am so sorry to hear you didn't receive service the last day/night of your stay. We would have been happy to deliver fresh linens and coffee if you had made us aware of this. Also, we try to let our guests know that they are more than welcome to use either pool. I'm sorry you were not told this at check-in. I'm happy to hear you were able to enjoy your balcony and the beautiful views the bay has to offer!

I had to book a hotel last min for a family trip when our original booking was lost. Not an easy task when you’re on a budget, 3 weeks out... I call Shay at the Sea Breeze early on a Monday morning and she was just as pleasant and accommodating as you can be. She worked with me on availability, moving the dates around, finding an affordable option for me and my family. I would book all of my vacations through her if I could. The Sea Bay is now on my constant radar for family getaways purely off of her good vibes and amazing demeanor. Thanks Shay!

I don't usually write reviews but felt I needed to with this one. My husband and I took a last minute trip due to our schedules and timing to Ocean City but because we were last minute, most rooms at other locations were booked or way out of our price range. Do yourself a favor and find another hotel. The ONE AND ONLY positive about this is the location. We had a bayside room which was nice to be able to see the sunset over the bay and to see the water. And we were within walking distance of restaurants and the gas station for snacks and drinks. The negatives made the hotel horrible though. As others have mentioned, the entrance constantly smelled of weed and smoke. The bed was AWFUL!!!! There is no better way to put that. So, don't expect a good nights sleep. We tossed and turned all night long. There were stains on the sheets and the cover for the boxspring. We found medicine of some sort on the floor that wasn't ours. We were woke up at 430 the first night because of a couple yelling at each other coming off the elevator and were still able to hear them when they went into their own room then again as they came back out into the hall way back to the elevator. So, needless to say the walls aren't noise proof. Also, if you are one of the rooms closer to the elevator, you will be able to hear every single time someone pushed the button for the elevator. The towels had all kinds of hair in them which is really gross. The shower wasn't the cleanest and the water never really got hot. It wasn't a cold shower but not hot either. There is no front desk staff at the Sea Bay. You have to go to their sister hotel Best Western Plus to check in/out or for anything else needed. Overall, this was probably one of the worst hotel experiences we've ever had. Luckily, we stayed pretty busy and weren't in the room much. I gave a 3 start for the service itself because the staff at the check-in counter was about your average hotel staff but nothing spectacular. We will not be back to this hotel and I am more than happy that we didn't have our family with us. There is no way that I would want to bring my kids here to this hotel. So, take with this review what you will but I strongly suggest trying to find a different hotel to stay in.

A friend and I came to OC for a quick trip for some sun in the day & fun at night. We chose the Sea Bay and are very happy that we did! The hotel itself was very clean and has a pool & gym & cute little cafe/bar within. The staff were also very nice and helpful - Shae at the front desk was lovely and made check-in and out pleasant & efficient. Even better, it is along the bay but only a block from the beach for some good times in the sun. For those of you into the OC nightlife, we were able to easily walk to Fager's Island and Seacrets, which saved a lot of $ on Uber. We had a fantastic time on our quick overnight trip and will definitely stay here again!

Rooms are dirty. Bathroom has mold on the ceiling tiles. Mattresses are horrific! Sleeping on a bed of nails would have been more comfortable. Beds were not made, nor room vacuumed the whole 5 days we were there. Only got new towels and garbage emptied. Hair dryer didn't work, had to ask for a new one. You can see dried drips of something down the walls. The front desk is in the other building (Best Western) up front so if you need anything (washer/dryer or your room key reprogrammed) you have to walk up there. Hallways are dark, elevator is slow, pool is TINY, and there are no towels by the pool. This hotel needs to be completely refurbished and brought up to some standards, at the very least new mattresses and paint! I would not recommend to anyone!!

Front desk service is great. The hallway carpet to our room was stained and dirty. The room, the decor is dated, comforter stained. There was leftover chips under the bed and dust and sand in the bathroom. We are not clean freaks but I do expect a clean room. The entrance to the bay view rooms smelled of weed.

The highlight of our trip was waking up and finding the upstairs neighbor had used our balcony as an ashtray. Charming.

This building is the back end of a two building property, for some reason now identified as two separate resorts but you’ll have to use the Best Western Plus (the larger building in the front) for any amenities or guest service. The pool is small, the elevator is arthritic, the balcony layout is awkward. The room was nice enough and spacious.

Room was nice but the bed spreads were stained and dirty. Everything else was good. Nice TV and Balcony. The bed was not very comfortable and the bed sheets were too rough. They need to purchase better bed sheets. Overall the stay was okay.

It's truly a great hotel for the price. They have bayfront rooms overlooking the Assawoman Bay and rooms overlooking Coastal highway. I "think" the room you are interested in might be in one of the "East" buildings. I'd call them and find out to be sure! Hope you enjoy your stay with your husband. What a good wife! :-) 1-800-888-2229
