“A perfect family vacation.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

I was impressed.
We visited OC for Memorial Day weekend because I am a veteran and I hav lost friends in the service. I booked this hotel because of the great location right on boardwalk. After checking prices of many other hotels this was a great value. We stayed in RM 418 with an ocean block view. This was prime location, during the day I could watch the sun come and go over the ocean, and at night I got to watch the night life come alive with beautiful lights and youth looking for a good time. The room was emacculet. When we got off the elevator on the 4th FL we could smell the fresh paint. The walls a gorgeous red tan color and what appeared to be new carpets. Paint was so fresh that my door actually stuck a little bit when I tried to open it the first time. The room was very clean and spacious, one of the biggest rooms i have had the pleasure of staying in. The beds are brand new, comfy and still had the tags on them! I especially liked the hooters next door and my wife loved the dunkin donuts just down stairs on the boardwalk. Great place great value. Thanks.

This hotel may look nice on the outside and pictures online however that is far from the truth. This hotel I would not even let my child sleep under the covers. They were all different shades of white and had no type of clean smell to them. Are water pressure was low the whole stay. We were advised to let it run a little while. Which this never helped at times we completely lost water. With having three adults and one child taking baths and showers were almost impossible. This place also had mold in the corners of the room along with the walls having "stuff" falling out of them. Thankfully we were only here one night, this was the worst experience I have ever had in the ten plus years I have been traveling to ocean city. As soon as I get home I plan to contact the proper people to have this hotel checked out. If you care about cleanliness do not stay here!

My husband and I just celebrated our 39th anniversary in April and we stayed two nights at the end of April during the Kite Festival which was right in front of our room. We slept with the sliding door open and the sound of the ocean soothing us all night long. The full moon and the sunrises across the ocean were spectacular. Great location on the beach and boardwalk made for a great visit! The staff was very accommodating and helpful and made our stay extremely nice. The room had a new bed which was very comfortable and the room was clean and pleasant. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Oceanfront on 3rd floor or higher is the best option depending on your preferences and number of gue...

Right on the boardwalk, the room was clean, staff were helpful.
The only problem we had was parking, we came back to the room late and we couldn't find a spot under the building or across the street, so we had to park at the sister hotel in another block.
Overall everything was great, and we will come back.

Not bad for just an overnight stay but I wouldnt want to spend my vacation there. I was glad to see the bedding being replaced in the rooms and it was nice sleeping on a new bed. The room had a real bad musty smell when we got there and I purchased some air treshener and fixed that. Assumed the room had been vacant over most of the winter months. And the room could have been a little cleaner. All in all it wasnt that bad. Real close to everything on the boardwalk but once again it was ok for the night but I wouldnt want to spend my vacation there........

I traveled here for a guys weekend in April. I found the hotel rooms spacious, generally clean and freshly painted. Although it was offseason, I found the price to be reasonable. The hotel is very close to the boardwalk as well as numerous attractions and restaurants. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating.

Room Tip: Try to get a corner room with a wrap around balcony facing the pool (if not staying ocean front).
