We have spent four lovely days at the Beach Walk Hotel. This is a small family-owned and -operated hotel. The rooms are eclectic and not a full-service hotel but has everything we needed to have a great vacation with extended family. We rented 5 rooms for a family get-together. We chose Ocean City because it is between Virginia and Pennsylvania where much of the family lives, and we chose Beach Walk Hotel because of the reviews on TripAdvisor.com that the rooms are clean and a good value. This is definitely true.
The hotel is on a side street, one building off of the boardwalk. We all agreed that the location is perfect because we were away from the heat and hubub of the boardwalk, but still had a very good view of the beach. We spent many hours on the porch visiting with each other between trips to the beach or boardwalk. The position of the porch is perfect to catch breezes from the ocean or bay. The rooms with 2 beds are by far more comfortable. There is plenty of space in the 2-bed rooms, with a small kitchen sink and refrigerator and small dining table with folding chairs. One of the 2-bed rooms had the beds in 2 separate rooms with a door between them. The 1-bed rooms are small but perfect for single guests or kids (we placed an air matress on the floor).
Negatives are that there is no elevator, and all rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd foors (the owner lives on the 1st floor). You have to carry everything up the exterior stairs. We have a couple of people with knee problems, and they struggled with negotiating the stairs. Also, the beds could be a little more comfortable. I am accustomed to Comfort Inn or Hampton Inn beds, and these beds are firm but cheaply made, probably comparable to a Motel 6. Also, parking can be a problem. As the owner explains when you book the room, there are only a few free spots on the street in front of the hotel. Otherwise, the owner provides free parking passes for a lot 3 blocks away. Parking is at a premium everywhere around the beach (and expensive), but you can keep your car in the free parking and take the bus which is only $2 to ride all day.
Beach Walk Hotel is very clean and well maintained. The cost made the trip affordable for all extended family members to participate, especially since we could bring our own food and drinks.
In summary, the Beach Walk Hotel is a great value for a small family or extended family, with easy access to the beach and boardwalk to keep everyone entertained.
