Tv was updated but furniture not. Room smelled like mildew, no amount of lysol helped. I Got a great rate, for the location.... More

The Fenwick Islander was exactly what my family was looking for! Clean room, comfy beds/bedding, small kitchenette (fridge, microwave, sink), and a balcony where we could hang beach towels to dry! Additionally, the staff was very accommodating with allowing us a parking pass and the use of the pool/showers when we arrived before check in time. It was just a... More

Great location & clean. Enjoyed the fun, simple pool with outdoor shower to clean off the beach sand & loved having a balcony. Less than 5 min walk to beach. Walked across & set up tent & in the ocean in less than 10 minutes.

We stayed here and loved the location,couple of blocks from a very nice beach and convenient to restaurants, groceries and retail shops. The pool was delightful and the owner and staff are very helpful. The rooms are very clean and we had a balcony looking out on a bay canal and the lighthouse in the distance, very pretty. My only...

From the dingy lobby, to the very questionable cleanliness issues, dated TV's, lights that don't work, I could go on and on. But that frankly would be giving them more PR than they deserve. No reason to book the place; I surely will never do so again! Erratic wi-fi to boot!

I could not book a hotel online within my budget, but still wanted to go to the ocean for AWD weekend. After driving up coastal highway, calling all of the hotels with vacancies (for up to $500 a night) I came across this hotel and it was fairly inexpensive. For a last minute walk in I was able to get... More

We have been staying at the Fenwick Islander for many years. It's the only place we even think about when vacationing on the eastern shore. They treat you like family and go above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay. We call ahead and make sure we always have the right room on the backside of the... More

Clean and well located but overpriced for what this motel is. I have stayed here twice. The first time we paid for a balcony bay view room but we're not given one. Instead of refunding us the difference the management gave us vouchers for a future stay. Hence my second visit. The second time we come to find out in... More
