We wanted to have a brief getaway, and we have had several trips to Ocean City, and love the area. It was short notice, and almost every accomodation that I read on trip advisor, that sounded nice, was booked, because of BIKE WEEK, and the Dover races. However, I did look at all of the reviews, and finally came up with this one. We were a little leary of going because of all the traffic and noise from the bikers, but, it was not that bad. The rooms faced the ocean and you could not hear the street traffic.
The room was small with 2 double beds, but very clean, the bathroom was spotless and there were plenty of clean white fresh towels. The sliding door opened up to a nice little balcony which provided a southern view of the ocean which was just as nice as the folks who were facing the ocean and paying more! It even had a decorative fireplace! Also when you left your room ,the inside corridor had huge windows which gave you a beautiful northern view of the ocean, the city ,and the bay! I would wake up and open the door and see the sunrise as I walked down the back stairs to an easy beach access, and pool access. There was a lovely tropical landscaped pool area, with a wade up bar, a sunning area w/sand and chairs and several hammocks to use.
The staff was very helpful, and quick to resolve any problems or questions you had. The maid service was excellent.
The area was on 66th street away from the congested activity at the end of the boardwalk. You could take the bus down to the boardwalk if you wanted to spend some time there without having to worry where to park (advice from the front desk). The Ocean City beaches are wonderful, they are very wide and have lovely soft sand.
We were very pleased with our stay, and wished we could've stayed longer.
No offense to the bikers, but if you are looking for a peaceful visit, and cannot tolerate a lot of noise-don't plan to come during Bike Week!
