This hotel is close to the action...too close. Bus runs all night, kids party in the street, fire/police screem by. Yes it's close to downtown, about one and half blocks off the boardwalk. So price alone, this is a pretty good value. The rooms are clean and neat. The free breakfast isnt anything to write about (cold ceral, fruit bagels, yogurt). The desk service was friendly but distant. The pool is just larger than a postal stamp, but not to be out done the parking lot is so tight, you almost need some one on every corner of your car to watch for you. The house keeping staff is equally distant, mainly because they see like they are from Russia, or like points. In room internet is also a myth. WiFi is available in the lobby (1 computer) and you need a desk cable for the room, if available. We couldnt get it to connect. There is also a lack of quality restaurants in walking distance of the hotel. Would I recommend it, no I dont think I can.

This Hotel is only one year old and it is great. The room was clean, the bed was great, the guy at the desk helped out in any way possible. I am glad we found a place that was clean for once.

We stayed here one night prior to moving to a bigger hotel. We were arriving very late (after midnight) and I wanted someplace not too expensive for just the one night. The late night check-in was friendly and efficient, and the room was pretty much as expected - clean and sufficient. No complaints at all. Perfect if you are looking for a no-frills, good value, clean hotel in a good location. We did not take advantage of the free breakfast, but it was offered.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Sleep Inn and Suites in Ocean City, Maryland and we were quite satisfied with our stay. First, the location of the hotel is great. It is across the street from the boardwalk and the beach. By being across the street from and not on the boardwalk, you are not impacted by the noise at night. The room was extremely clean and came with a refrigerator, which was very helpful. Our bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious, and the hotel's condition was impeccable.
There is only one thing this new hotel needs to improve upon: breakfast- they cannot keep up with the demand for the complementary breakfast. At this point, if you aren't going to go down at 7:00 am- don't bother. They run out of almost everything and the service is understaffed. I am willing to give them a pass on this because they have just entered their first busy season.
Parking is a concern at the hotel. There is one space per room and you will always find a space; however, the spaces are SMALL. Large SUVs do not fit. It was a challenge at times to fit our compact car in spaces.
Overall, for the price, this is a great hotel in Ocean City.

Let me just note that by no means is this a 5* hotel but I gave it 5* because it is exactly as described and so much better than expected. The hotel is immaculate. Rooms were large and clean. We did not have a bathtub in our room, not sure if this is the same for all rooms. Beds were comfy. We had a fridge, microwave, iron/ironing board, soaps and shampoos but no safe. We had a decent size balcony with a small table. We were able to see the beach from our balcony. There is also a laundry room if you need. No WiFi in rooms as others have stated as well.

Free breakfast in the morning was nice (7am-10am). They had juices, coffee, toast, bagels, cereals, and some fruits. Not tons of food but can't complain, it was free! Seating was hit or miss though. One day we couldn't find a table, the next day it was completely empty (at about the same time 9am).

Rates were very affordable for the location. We were only a block to the beach and extremely close to the amusement rides on the pier and Trimpers. Baltimore Ave is a little tough to cross with all the traffic. We found it a little easier to walk a block to the left or right to cross at the lights.

Parking was tight (short, tight spaces - good luck parking an SUV) but ample. There were even a few covered spots under the hotel.

We didn't use the pool so can't comment on that.

This is such a pleasant addition to Ocean City where even the most run-down dumps are $300 a night. We will definitely stay here again when in the area and would without a doubt recommend to family and friends. Hope they maintain the hotel because it really is excellent!

Pros: First of all great location, we could walk right out cross the street and be at the activities end of the boardwalk. All new and very clean. Contrary to previous posts, our staff was wonderful....although we could not check-in early, which is fine, he allowed us a parking pass and showed us where the changing rooms were so that we could hit the beach until it was time.
Cons: I wish I would have looked at the photos closer, because the suites are really jr. suites....there is no seperate bedroom, which we paid extra for to have a little privacy from the kids. No wireless internet that they advertise and have instructions for in their room booklet. =/
All in all great place!!!!! Those complaining about parking sizes, they are small but that is the norm at the beach, and I was glad to have parking that I didn't have to pay extra.
