We stayed here for a weekend getaway. It was a really nice, clean hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised. They have a great location, view and even an indoor pool. Everything was clean and had been renovated over the years.

Room Tip: Loved the oceanfront room

My husband and I stayed in the hotel bldg for Springfest. Our usual spot was booked. The staff was very nice and helpful. It was clean and nice. However the bed was extremely uncomfortable. Has a cute little indoor pool, and a nice resturaunt. The breakfast buffet was great, well worth it. Great location on the boardwalk.

The Lynch family have owner the Commander since the 30's. Their standards of hospitality, cleanliness and customer care are second to none. Highly recommend the Commander in OC! The lcation is right in the middle of the famous Boardwalk and most attractions are within walking distance.

Stayed Jeep week 2012 Cabana suites. This hotel and many others in OC need a serious overhaul. The location is great but the room and bathroom were so dated and just plain old which made me see how dirty it really was. I was also disappointed with the parking situation, once you left the hotel you had to jockey for a new spot or park in their over flow lot which was a couple blocks away. But my biggest issue was the dried blood on my pillow this wasn't a small spot, someone had a serious nose bleed, of course they exchanged them but the image was burnt into my memory so I sent my husband out to buy pillows and cases and sheets, I always travel with my own towels and bath cloths. I'm sure they can afford to update the rooms and maybe hire a better cleaning staff. A fresh coat of paint, removing that ugly wallpaper in the bathroom, new linens (sheets, blankets, towels and pillows)replacing the carpet and a thorough cleaning would do wonders. A positive was the location and balcony. And just a fyi, we have been coming to OC for over 23 years and have stayed at several hotels over the years and this was the worst.

We have been traveling to ocean city, MD for the past 18 years for our annual golf outing. We have stayed at the Commander Hotel for the past 16 years. Why? Because they do it all... the service is terrific, the breakfast buffet is excellent. the rooms are clean and neat the the view of the boardwalk and the ocean is fantastic. They book all details of our trip besides the rooms. They set up our golf course tee times and they work extremely hard at making your trip perfect.

We had such a nice stay here. The hotel is a great mix of old Ocean City charm and modern convenience. The room had very comfortable beds, a full size refrigerator and mini kitchen. Most importantly, it was spotless, and the cleaning staff was friendly and fabulous!! The view and location can't be beat. Staff was welcoming and accommodating. We'll definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Oceanfront is awesome!
