This was our second time staying at this hotel. We stayed here 3 years ago when it first opened and were pleasantly surprised at the hotel considering that the vast majority of the hotels in Ocean City are run down. Not much has changed with the hotel in that 3 years and it appears that the management has been keeping up with the property quite well. We had an ocean front room that overlooked the beach and boardwalk. It had a small but adequate balcony to enjoy the view from. The rooms were clean and the beds are still super comfortable. The staff are friendly and the location is nice since it's on the quiet end of the boardwalk.
In terms of pricing, this hotel is going to run you a lot more money as compared to other hotels along the boardwalk. Even with our AAA discount, the hotel still was an average of $30-$50 more a night than some other hotels in the general vicinity. But again, you are getting a much nicer and much cleaner hotel than the cheaper ones. The pool area as mentioned is quite small and the parking garage is laid out quite awkwardly. I can see how large vehicles would have difficulty moving around.
I would have no regrets recommending this hotel to any friends or family. In fact, I think even though it is more expensive it is probably one of the better options in Ocean City. The only hotels that may top this are the Holiday Inn Suites (17th St/Boardwalk) or the Hilton Oceanfront Suties (21st St). Holiday Inn would be more for families and the Hilton would be for those with a lot more extra money. We normally do not stay at a hotel twice unless we really like it so I think that maybe keeping that in mind shoudl help.
