Flanders is a beautiful hotel in THE prime location - right at the best part of the boardwalk, and I love being literally steps away from all of the action. Staff is friendly, helpful and responsive. Pool is lovely and a nice, warm temperature. The rooms are elegant and functional - the kitchen is small but has a big fridge to fit all the food you bring from home, a stove top for cooking up eggs in the morning, and even a little dishwasher. There are laundry facilities on every floor making it a breeze to throw in a load during your vacation when needed. We booked a two bedroom suite for the seven of us - four adults, two elementary school kids and one baby. The room was plenty big for us all, with a nice pull out couch for the kiddos and the good quality crib for the baby that easily fit in the large bedroom with mom and dad. Plenty of storage space for clothes with several closets and dressers. We had great views of the ocean and the amusement park rides. I've been coming to OCNJ for many decades and always stayed in a rented house, until a few years ago, when we began booking hotels. Once we experienced Flanders for the first time in 2016, we've booked it every year. It's pricier than other places, but it's always felt worth it. Until this year. Honestly one of the biggest draws of staying in a hotel over a rented condo or house is the luxury of having housekeeping services every day - to sweep up the sand, freshen the towels and take out the trash. On our second day at Flanders, we left a nice tip on the table for housekeeping and left the room for the day, only to come back later that afternoon to find that nothing had been done. The trash was still overflowing from the tiny wastebasket. Our used towels still on the floor. The beds unmade. The front desk staff informed us that housekeeping services were now only every four days. During our entire stay - Tuesday through Saturday - we never had our room cleaned once. The first day we requested our trash to be taken out, and someone did respond immediately, but we ended up going to the store to buy trash bags and took out our own trash a couple of times each day. We did think, if the hotel isn't going to offer daily housekeeping, at least they should stock the room with extra trash bags, extra coffee, extra dish washing detergent and soaps. But there was none of that, so we went out and bought it all. Flanders claims that this policy is for our health and safety, in light of COVID, and I really hope it isn't a permanent policy. On our first day, we were so excited to be there, and we all agreed that we would book 2022's stay at the Flanders before we left this year. By the time we finished our vacation, we decided against it. Perhaps we became too spoiled over our previous years' stays where we felt like we were in the absolute lap of luxury at the Flanders. To come back from a night on the boardwalk to a clean, sparkling room and fresh towels every day was absolutely glorious. We are working parents; our whole lives are about cleaning up messes and it feels so good once a year to get a break from that! We didn't this year. In 2021, Flanders is still a great hotel and a good experience. But if daily housekeeping isn't a part of the experience anymore, then we're going to look at condos and houses again where we can get get more room or a lower price. Flanders - we'll be back next year if daily housekeeping service is restored. Please consider it!

Looking forward to family time for my husband’s birthday. Family flew in from Chicago, grandbabies too. Check-in was no problem. Room beautiful. Not sure when it was used last, but very dusty. After a long day, fill the jacuzzi in the master bath…NOTHING. Sink drain? Slower than molasses! Bath fixtures could be replaced as all were loose. Manager Tiffany apologizes, sends a repairman next day (mind you it’s Summer so $900/night 2 night minimum, we have one night left). Repairman in n out, Tiffany apologizes, offers a small deduction on my bill. Had reservations for 10 INSIDE (humidity crazy); not only did Flanders call me to see if I wanted indoor or outdoor seating. INDOOR thx. We were seated outside, then moved to a tent. I asked restaurant manager to kindly look at my reservation for 6:30 INSIDE. She shrugs, “it’s all you can eat crab night” it’ll be a few minutes!! Okay… there’s two empty tables INSIDE, but they’re reserved. Okay… back after another hit beach day. Fill the tub, jacuzzi DOES NOT WORK! Call desk at midnight asking what the secret is to turn on, “no clue” is all I got. Tiffany calls 9:30 am, wants to send a repair man…I checkout at 11:00 am… We can stay till noon! WOW, we had asked for extended checkout at checkin..NO CAN DO. I requested she adjust my bill. She has to check with Flanders President. She never got back to me. All I can say is what a TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT. So not worth $900.00 a night, it does have nice visuals. Customer service of their hotel and restaurant so unprofessional. Big bucks and no bang (or jacuzzi either)! Lol . Have a call into upper administration. If you decide to try it, hope you enjoy your suite, don’t get 201 Promenade. I gave it a 2 for visuals.

My wife and I stayed ocean front for 3 nights - super nice room. When we got there I inquired about any discounts and was told during peak season there were none. My step mother asked me to pick up a brochure which I did and right before I was putting it in the mail, I noticed a pamphlet inside stated a military discount all year round. Well I was outraged and ready to blast someone! No need! When I called, the woman I talked to immediately agreed and later that day my credit card was refunded! Totally unheard of in today's economy!

My husband and I decided to take an overnight getaway, we discovered a hidden gem right in Ocean City. We have walked by the place many times and said many times, that we wanted to visit, and we finally did. The staff was amazing, the room was clean and cozy!!! I was wonderful. There is so much history. The onsight restaurant "Emily's" was fantastic. Even if you don't stay at the hotel, this place had fabulous food and ambience! The restaurant is named after a ghost that haunts the hotel, although we did not get to see her.

The Flanders did not disappoint. After having been curious about this iconic hotel for many years we finally got to experience its historic architecture, charm and perfect location. The rooms were more than spacious. It was well appointed and breakfast was excellent. Walking the boardwalk to enjoy the beautiful weather during the last week of October and watching the full moon rise over the ocean was memorable. Can’t wait to come back.
