“Nice and simple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2007

This motel isn't that much to look at... just a simple motel. But the amenities and cleanliness make up for the simple motel feel. It's a 2 story, double strip, old fashioned motel. There's a nice sized parking lot in front of the motel units, AND there's a very HUGE additional lot just across the street.

Checking in was a breeze. I haven't stayed at a hotel/motel in quite a long times, where I had to fill out a registration card. It was kind of quaint. <lol>

We stepped into our room to be pleasantly surprised with the amenities. We were expecting a bed, tv and bathroom. What we found was the bed, tv, bathroom, a mini-fridge, microwave, small table w/chairs to eat at, and plenty of room to move around. And the best thing that we found... NO mildew smell!!! The room was clean, clean, clean, and had no residual odors of any kind. This is extremely rare at OC-MD.

The motel is located on the Boardwalk, around 4 blocks from the end. The tram-car runs past every 10 minutes or so, but the city bus is cheaper. The beach is lifeguarded, but weather conditions were just too chilly to enjoy it. There is a small swimming pool right on the Boardwalk, but again, the weather was not permitting. We did take a look at the pool, very clean and well maintained.

Overall, an extremely pleasant stay. We'll go back in the future!

This motel was clean, however, they allow smoking. The rooms really smelled, especially when we turned on the a/c. Otherwise, it was clean.

Our stay at the Ocean Mecca Motel was very pleasing. The location is the best for all reasons. Plenty of parking, right on the boardwalk, great pool on boardwalk, walking distance to anything. I will definitely go back when I can. The rooms are clean and reasonable. I only wish they had coffee in the rooms or in the office. But I guess I can use the exercise.

If you are looking for a clean well-maintained place to stay look no further than the Ocean Mecca. It is located on the boardwalk. They have ample parking. They're swimming pool is located right next to the boardwalk so you can sit and relax, swim, or walk right across the boardwalk and down to the ocean. The rooms are thouroughly cleaned everyday. Believe it or not after you check out they even strip the comforters on the bed and their washed.(I do a lot of travelling and have never seen this done) The owners are on seen at all times. They have zero tolerance for any mischief on their property. (If you can't respect their property you will be asked to leave.) I witnessed it and thought it was outstanding. They are to be commended.
It had been 13 years since my last trip to Ocean City mainly because of disgusting hotels and motels and it was so nice to go back after all these years and find this place.

Our 6th year at Ocean City we found ourselves at a great little Motel called The Ocean Mecca. We stayed in one of the efficiencies because we always look for a room where we can cook our meals. This place was clean, the staff was super friendly and my daughter loved the pool. We are definately going to try and stay there again next year.

  • Liked — The Pool
  • Disliked — We would have liked to be near the boardwalk
  • Tips/Secrets — Book very early - they fill up fast

I took more time than folks probably normally find necessary to search the Internet for the "perfect" motel in Ocean City, MD, but in the end it paid off!!! I was scared off from many chain motels by the reviews that described dirt, noise and bad service, so I went on a search for a smaller motel and I was very specific in my search. 1.) It had to have a pool with a view of the ocean. 2.) It had to be on the board walk, but not in the congested area ... the street had to be in the teens or twenties. 3.) It had to be clean! After searching for days and many headaches later I decided on the Ocean Mecca and in spreading the good word I have actually found many other people that already knew about it and also have agreed that it's the best place to stay in Ocean City. I would also like to compliment the cleaning staff there ... keep up the great work! They were soooo friendly, too!
