Was very pleased with our stay at the Courtyard at Marriott in Ocean City Md. This was our first trip to Ocean City MD and I wanted to stay at a hotel on the boardwalk. I picked the Courtyard primarily because of its location on the boardwalk. the boardwalk runs from about 27th st down to a few blocks below 1st street. since the hotel is on 15th street I thought that would be perfect and it was. The hotel was clean, modern and the staff was very pleasant. We had a Ocean front room with a small balcony. If I ever decide to return to Oceans City MD I would not hesitate to book a room at the Courtyard on the boardwalk

Thank you DPWZ9/9 for taking the time to write a review on our hotel. Our location is one of our best features, and it's great to hear that we fit your needs perfectly. Being in the middle of the boardwalk is hard to beat! Our staff looks forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Ocean City.

We stayed here while we passed through on our way back from VA. I love Marriotts and struggled to find one with a vacancy. After checking for three days, a room came available on the Marriott site. I booked it, even though it said city view since other reviewers had said these rooms had a partial view of the ocean. Ours did not, my mistake. Stay away from rooms 228, 229 and 230. They are on the street with a view of the parking lot and a Buffett. They also share the hall with two loud mechanical rooms. And the street is noisy. clearly these are the worst rooms and should be discounted. This room was $259 and not worth it. No balcony either. That being said, the hotel had a lovely lobby and great restaurant and nice bar. Indoor pool was very small but we don't use it anyway. Rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable. It is a better choice than those old musty properties. Very strict parking policy, only one car allowed. Get there early so you don't have to park across the street in the overflow lot. Andrea at the front desk was excellent and very helpful. Location is good, beach and boardwalk not far away. Early check ins seem difficult.

Thank you for review, RedheadMA. We, as many hotels in the area, stay very busy through the summer months and into September. I'm glad to hear that a room opened up for you! When booking our rooms online, we have two "city view" rooms. The city view room with a balcony actually do have a partial view of the ocean, whereas the city view rooms that do not have a balcony in the description are strictly city facing. We may not have had any of the balcony rooms available during your stay, hopefully the next time you're in town we will have more availability and we can get you in a room with a better view. We are proud of all our staff, and I'm happy that Andrea exceeded your expectations! I will pass on your kind words to her and share with our staff. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Ocean City!

I would really recommend this hotel, it’s right on the boardwalk, the staff is very nice, room was very clean, and hence I am an owner of a cleaning business in NJ.
Minutes from all the good restraints…. I have staid at other hotels and this one is far my favorite in Ocean City MD

Location -- The hotel is right on the beach and conveniently located adjacent to the Boardwalk. The location is the best thing about the Marriott Ocean City.

Room -- Our room was clean, comfortable, and as advertised. The room appeared to have been renovated sometime recently. The wireless internet connection was reliable and reasonably fast.

Layout -- This hotel seems to have been designed in the surreal stage of the '70s and never re-thought. Getting in and out is difficult. The lobby is on the third level. You can take an elevator or climb two flights of stairs. If your room is on the second floor (and perhaps other floors, although I didn't check), you need to take a different elevator to that level. That elevator is the only means of accessing the second floor -- there are no stairs. The elevator is slow and used by too many people. Prepare to wait.

Parking -- Don't make the mistake of bringing more than one car. Parking is in short supply, and you are only entitled to one spot in the two Marriott parking lots, one of which is located across a busy street. (The hotel does not tell you in advance that there are limits on parking. We learned the hard way and had to park an extra car elsewhere.)

Food -- The hotel restaurant is good for breakfast. The waiters are friendly and the service and breakfast menu is respectable. Lunch was not good. White bread on a sandwich means the equivalent of Wonder Bread. The fries had no taste. I tried to order room service for dinner one night, but the restaurant did not answer the phone. The front desk told me the restaurant was busy and could not take my order for an hour. I got take-out for dinner instead.

Gym -- There is a spacious room with a cross-trainer and a couple of treadmills, along with some dumbells and other odds and ends. It's not a great gym, but you can do a basic workout.

Have stayed here twice in the last two years and will be staying again in September. This facility has been clean and comfortable each time. Staying several days at a time for business, I've enjoyed its location on the Ocean City Boardwalk, the early morning sunrises, and proximity to restaurants and the OC Convention Center.

Layout is a bit confusing. Lobby and pool are on the 3rd floor. Various stair and elevator combinations. Well maintained, updated and attractive décor. Limited and tight parking underneath. More exposed parking in the lot across the street. All included. My bed was too soft for my liking. Room was reasonably quiet. Only one sink in the bathroom. Breakfast was OK.

Room Tip: The higher the better for less outside sound and views

We went to Ocean City for a couple of nights and really enjoyed the hotel and the facilities. We had the king suite with jetted tub. We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Great location being right on the Boardwalk and the beach. Tons of restaurants and shopping venues with in minutes. The Captain's Table restaurant in the hotel was very good and consistent the several meals that we ate there. Really enjoyed our stay here.
