“Great Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This was the second time we have stayed at this motel and it has been a great experience both times. Clean rooms, although small. We don't mind them being small as we are there to enjoy the beach. The location is amazing, no need to drive anywhere! The boardwalk and beach is across the street.The housekeeping staff is wonderful and they do a really good job. The front desk staff are very friendly and nice. The price is just right as well! Even though the building is old, the walls are not thin, there are no bugs whatsoever and the rooms have been updated. The bathrooms are small but no problem for us. the pool is small but just the right size to cool off after a long day at the beach before dinner. the fridge worked really well. We stayed on the second floor and it was nice to be able to hang our towels over the railing to dry overnight. Great place to stay if you are a beach bum and a no frills type of person who does however value cleanliness!

Room Tip: The main building to me is best, the "xl" rooms aren't as small as the poolside rooms...

Been staying at Madison Beach for many years. Love the location and close proximity to the boardwalk and inlet areas all within walking distance. The local 7-11 store for coffee and drinks is another plus. The staff is very friendly and courteous. The pool is really nice for the kids.

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms are advantageous to avoid stairs to the second and third floors.

First time at the Madison motel. Booked online and received confirmation email that day. Several days before arrival received another email re-confirming reservation and the email included directions and the oc weather report. Check in was smooth and easy. We were several hours early so the motel allowed us to park and called us when our room was ready. YES THE ROOM AND BATHROOM WERE SMALL but WHO CARES. The location is excellent. The room was clean. The price is reasonable. If your going to oc for the beach, boardwalk, fishers popcorn, wockenfuss fudge and a clean reasonably priced motel stay at the Madison!

Room Tip: Spend extra $20 for larger room. Ask for room 221

Good location near the beach but the smell of the room in unbareable. We paid 200 dollars total for 3 adultsm it is a rip off. I heard that low season is 39 dollats. Well, 39 is about right for this moyel but not 200

We planned a last minute trip to Ocean City and this was the only motel we could find for all 3 nights. I have to agree with other post that the pictures make it appear nicer than it is. We had a room with 2 double beds and it was very small and so was the bathroom and shower but we knew ahead of time what it was. If you are not a fussy person it will do. The carpet was dirty and my daughter had dirty feet after walking on it. The sheets on one of the beds had a hair and other pieces of something and the pillow had stains on it. I did tell someone about it and he got me another pillow and sheets. He also offered to have the carpets cleaned but I have teenagers who don't like to get up early and the carpet was going to take about 4 hours to clean. He said he is not sure how the pillow got in the room. The complimentary coffee is nice but something other than powdered creamer would be better. This is a very average hotel and I would never stay there again but I am very fussy. The location was nice for kids but very noisy from the traffic and other guests. Thank goodness the air conditioner and fan I bring help block the noise.

Room Tip: If you have more than 2 people I would advise getting a bigger room.

The Madison Beach House was perfect for our family of 5. It was very clean! One block from the boardwalk and beach. About two blocks from the bay. The staff was very friendly. Debby Wells, the manager, wasn't there when we first checked in, but she made a point to stop and introduce herself and ask if everything was alright and if we needed anything. Joe was great! He took care of us by bringing towels daily and whatever else we needed. I can't say enough about how friendly the staff was! We've stayed in OC before, but no other place beats this location or the staff.

Great location: halfway between the beach and the bay, short walk on one side to the beach, on the other to the bridge/Angler restaurant and jetski activities. Also next door to 7-11 to grab drinks, snacks, sunscreen etc.

Staff are nice, very polite and knowledgeable. No trouble at all with check-in, check-out, queries about restaurants etc.

Rooms are not bad for what you pay and the location; they're clean and decently laid out. No frills though, and not luxurious. But who goes to the beach to hang in the hotel room?

Would definitely stay here again!
