This hotel is NOT located directly on the beach unless you specifically request it.
There are 2 separate buildings and they are not attached.We traveled as a large family and requested the suite with ocean view.But be careful,there are 2 different suites with the same number of beds.The difference is the suite that offers a little privacy,with a wall separting it from the rest of the room, is NOT ocean front.You barely can see the ocean between the buildings.So if you want ocean view suite then you have to get the room where are the beds are in the same room with no privacy.Because we had a large party, we had to drive 2 cars,only to find out upon check in that the hotel provided parking for only 1 car.They said park on the street a block away or more if you want free.If you want to pay you could park right beside the hotel.Good luck finding a space if you go in the summer time. As far as the room goes,there is no carpet.
Let me repeat,not a misprint or exaggeration.No carpet,it's tiled.Which makes for a few unexpected problems.If the room is not kept clean and tidy various bad odors exist.
My guess is because if there was carpet,it would absorb some of the smells from dirty clothes,wet bathing suits and so forth.The other problem is all the sand from the beach will be everywhere over a period of time so bring a broom.Maids did a good job of cleaning the room,when they actually cleaned it.They did not clean the room for the first 48 hours we were there.For the price we paid which was $300 per night,it should have been a lot better.I would recommend in the off season when the price isn't so high. Otherwise it's a decent hotel but not a that price.However that's about an average price for all the hotels in Ocean City ON THE BEACHFRONT in the summer time
