“Beach Wedding at the Courtyard Marriott”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We had an amazing beach wedding in front of the Courtyard Marriott in Ocean City, MD last month. We booked an Ocean front suite about a month in advance and our party of ten stayed on the third floor. Cassandra Rox planned the ceremony for us and Rebecca helped us with an intimate reception afterwards and Sunday Brunch the next morning. We couldn't imagine a better place to get married and look forward to bringing our children here one day!

My daughter turned 16 and we let her choose what she wanted to do, and she chose, go to Ocean City. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly and courteous. We surprised our daughter with an extra room for her and her friends to stay in 2 of the nights. When the front desk learned of this, they surprised us all. When we returned from our activities, there was a birthday card and goodie bag for our daughter. A very nice touch! Thanks. Room was great, pool sufficient, and restaurant has a very good breakfast. Just wished that the summer rates were cheaper.

Stayed there from April 18th to the 21st. Asked for and received an Ocean Front room. Room was very clean and well kept up. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Not all of the rooms here are Ocean Front, so make sure you specify that, if that is what you want. The room had a number of outlets which is important with all the gadgets we bring. There is no kitchen here, just a very small microwave and a very small fridge. No stove, dishes or dishwasher. TV was nice and they actually had HD service for their HDTV.. Most of the balconies are very small holding only 2 regular non reclining chairs with no room for a table. However we had a corner unit which had a wrap around balcony and 2 extra chairs. Still there were no tables outside. There is also not privacy on the deck as you can see all of the other balconies. Also, the balcony lights stay on all night with no way I could see to turn them off.

They did have an indoor pool, (but no outdoor pool), which I thought was a little small considering the size of the place with a conversation pool. It looks like a hot tub, but without the whirlpool effect and the heat. The pool chairs where nice and there was a table with 4 chairs. The glass doors were closed as it was quite cool outside but they could open up into a nice nice outside deck. There was also a fitness center just off the pool area. What I didn't like about the whole setup was that the bar was not connected to the pool area. You could order things, but there were no hotel phones to do so. Also, I do not believe the bar was open for parts of the day during the week during off season.

The Captains Table restaurant is a great place to get breakfast. We ate there twice. While it may cost a little more than the other breakfast places nearby, the quality of the breakfast was much better.

I question whether the parking they have is sufficient during the summer. During out stay, we did not have trouble finding a spot. The parking spots are very narrow and there were a few spots I simply could not get my SUV into, opting instead to park on the street. There is also overflow parking across the street.

If you are considering this place in the next few weeks, please check with the front desk about the status of the boardwalk replacement. They have been working their way up from south and had just finished up to 15th street on Friday. Got to hear a lot of hammering and sawing on Friday, but Saturday and Sunday were fine.

All in all it was a nice place, but not quite as nice (nor as expensive) as the Hilton down the road where we stayed last year.

Room Tip: Not all rooms are ocean front, so please make sure you request an ocean front room.

I went with a big group of friends to Ocean City to take part in the Race for the Cure. We selected the Courtyard on the boardwalk, which was a good choice on our part. We had a room on the ground floor right on the boardwalk. Had it not been so cold and windy, it would have been great to keep the sliding door open.

The hotel is very strangely designed. You come in on the first floor and take the elevator to the third floor, where you check in. Since we were on the first floor, we had to walk around the pool and fitness center to get to the elevator that took us back down to our rooms. Odd. We also could not stay only one weekend night (the race was Sunday morning, so we had to stay Friday night as well).

Great location. Nice clean room right on the boardwalk.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ground floor right on the boardwalk would be very noisy during the summer.

Perfect hotel with a beachy yet modern feel. Clean rooms, great ocean views, excellent customer service, easy access to boardwalk and restaurants! There is also a great indoor pool on the same floor as the lobby. Also just to mention little amenities: mini fridge in room, free Internet in room, shower/tub, and flat screen TV. One of the days we left a privacy please sign on the door while we went to the boardwalk and when we got back the cleaning service left us a bag on our door handle with extra soaps and towels so we wouldn't have to call for more. That was so great!! Excellent hotel! Will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to OC!

What a great time everything was great from the time we arrived . The front desk clerk was very nice seemed caring not the usual bs script they give you. the room was very nice and roomy with a balcony and 2 chairs the weather was very nice down there to 70 at 10 oclock at night not to bad. The rate was good 153.00 that includes tax. Wish it could be this price in july but thats a dream lol. The pool and weight room where very nice also.bathroom was a bit small but it has a seat in the shower most marriotts dont have that in the shower only there gaylord locations and upper hotels.bed was nice and soft relaxing . Be sure to stay here if you can afford to during the peak months a very nice place and you will have a great time . The Ocean view was amazing a must if you are able to get theses rooms.

Room Tip: Get a ocean view the sunrise view is worth the price.

I was looking forward to visiting Ocean City MD and I had read good reviews about this property.. boy what a disappointment. It started off with the front desk person who sounded very rehearsed in her customer service delivery in a sing-songy voice. While she was checking me in there was no pleasantries or smiles she just went through the motions. She then put a clipboard in front of me and said sign this. I asked what it was she said it was an agreement you have to sign to check in to the hotel. The "agreement" was that you keep quiet and not disturb others and also that you only drink alcohol from the restaurant downstairs in the hotel. This is fine with me .. I dont drink, but it led me to ask her if they have problems with people having parties in the hotel, she said no its just a precaution.. not sure about that. I got up to my room it seemed ok on first notice, but later on I discovered stains on the sheets and covers. The housekeeping changed them for me and later I noticed stains on the towels and rips in the towels. (ugh). The best part of the room was the balcony with ocean view. The worst part about that is they are doing construction outside on the boardwalk and we couldnt keep the doors open. I wish I would have known this. Room service was ok typical hotel service. I ordered a light meal with a soft drink the soda tasted like water (they put it in a plastic cup filled with ice) so I called back down and asked them for a canned container or cancel the soda off of my bill, she acted as though I had asked her how high was the moon like she didnt know how to take the soda off the bill.. she never did by the way. I went down to the front desk the evening before check out and asked the woman to email my bill and not put it under the door in the morning, she said she would take care of it. Lo and behold I got up this morning greeted by a bill stuck up under my door. The customer service, housekeeping and room service should polish up on dealing with the guest. We are here off season there is no reason not to be able to give the best service to your guest. I would also suggest,Marriott that you order more TV stations or offer a way to purchase movies in room like some of the other reviewers suggested it would be better than watching the few stations you have. I would like the opportunity to watch something other than CNN and basic local channels.
Bottom line for me to many little things added up and I will likely choose another hotel if I return to this area.

Room Tip: Ask before you book if there is any construction going on.
