We recently spent a weekend at the Impala Island Inn as part of a metal detecting event at the Music Pier. Many of the people attending this event stayed at the Impala as part of the weekend. The weekend started off on the wrong foot, when we discovered that parking was impossible to find. Several reviews of the Impala have...

We stayed here on the off-season for Doo Dah weekend. The room was clean and had a nice sized TV. Rooms are outdated but it is a beach town motel so that is to be expected. The location is awesome! Only a block to the boardwalk and beach. The rides at Castaway Cove are literally in the back yard! We...

Our family has stayed here every summer for the past 16 years. It's perfectly located right off the beach and is clean and convenient to everything in OC. A bit noisy sometimes since it's right next to an amusement park, but we wouldn't stay anyplace else. Of course you pay dearly for the experience of being that close to the...

The location and access to beach and showers is great. Decor is a little outdated and could stand to be updated. We come every year with friends and the kids love the pool and adults love that there are showers for after the beach and after we've checked out of the room.

Less than a block away from the busy part of the boardwalk. Bright, clean rooms. Courteous and helpful staff. Reasonable prices, even during the crowded summer season. Off-street parking. When you are in Ocean City, STAY HERE!

This is a great place to stay never short of fantastic, Its a block from the beach and the cleaning staff is very courteous. The beach is close enough that if you have bad knees or just want to be able to run the boards in the morning its near enough that you can get there without worrying about crossing...

We love the Impala Island Inn, as is evidenced by our 25 year run! My kids, ages 26 and 29 now, have 'grown up' with annual June trips to the Impala. The convenience of being on the beach block was a 'plus' when the kids were young and we had all of their goodies to drag to the beach. Rooms...

I have been staying at the Impala since 1974. It has always been kept very clean and neat. Grounds are meticulously groomed. It is very family friendly. The staff is friendly and quick to respond to any requests. Smoking is only allowed in a couple outdoor spots, which is a plus for me. The beds are comfortable. I especially like...

We have been going to the Impala Inn for over 7 years for a week at the Jersey Shore. Location is excellent as it is just blocks away from some very good breakfast locations and 1 block from the boardwalk. The hotel is what you would expect from most shore hotels, dated but kept clean. This plus the location allows...

We have stayed in OC for many years. Finding the Impala Island Inn made our stays much more enjoyable. During the summer we like the south side rooms. This past March we had events in Wildwood and took 4 other couples with us, but chose to stay here and travel the 25 miles south, this place IS worth the trip....
