“We will be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2010

This was my first time staying at the Sea Bay Hotel and we couldn't have had a better experience. We had four adults and 3 small children with us - the hotel was able to give us two adjoining rooms with two double beds in each room. After long days on the beach and swimming in the two pools at this hotel we were able to put the kids down in one room while the adults sat on the balcony enjoying the beautiful view of the bay! The hotel staff was EXTREMELY friendly, the rooms were clean and the cafe in the main building of the hotel serves a great breakfast. ...and best of all was the affordable price!
It's only block away from the beach and located in the middle of Ocean City so you can get to the North or South streets relatively easy. (and if you’re traveling without children there’s a great nightclub/bar located less than a block away – Fager’s Island)
There is no doubt in my mind that my family and I will stay here again - and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I spent three days in Ocean City and we booked into the Sea Bay. The Sea Bay is actually two seperate buildings. The main building and a back building facing the bay. I was in room 432 which had a bay view. The room had a microwave, coffee maker and nice sized fridge with no freezer compartment. The bed was ok but a little on the soft side as were the pillows.
The room was sufficient for my wife and myself. The only problem I had with the back building was that there was only one elevator which is used by guests and staff. The pool was small and triangular in shape but seemed to be able to accomodate those that wanted to use it. The pool in the main building was larger and nicer, The balconey was nice but had cigarette butts from a previous guest soaking in the water run off from the A/C. The view of the bay was nice.
The staff were always polite and courteous. There is a restaurant in the main building to get breakfast or lunch. The food, service and prices were decent.
This is a nice place run by nice people. Remember the boardwalk in OC ends at 38th street. This hotel is on 60th street. You would need to drive or take the bus to get to the boardwalk attractions.
For the price and service I would stay here again.

I wanted a spacious room for my family. The Sea Bay delivered with a large room with two beds and a pull-out sofa. The room was clean, fridge & micro in room. Excellent choice.

We went on july 9th and stayed till july 12th. The room was super clean and staff was super nice. The second day of our trip it rained really bad and our belt came off of our mini van. That night two guys who worked for the hotel helped my boyfriend for an hour (with their own tools) to put our belt back on. We were so glad they were there to help or we might not have been able to get home. If we needed anything and called the hotel they were up in minutes. They had 2 pools which were very clean and the kids loved them. We ate at the cafe, the prices were cheap and the food was great. This will be the place we stay at from now on!

very convenient location , first hotel when entering Ocean City from route 90 bridge - short walk to the beach. Ate breakfast and lunch at the cafe on the first floor - very good food at reasonable prices. Room was clean and LARGE - had granite countertops - nicely updated. The balcony was large as well . Staff very friendly and helpful. This will definitely be my first chioice when returning to Ocean City.

I spent a night in OC on business and stayed at Sea Bay for the first time. The staff were wonderful and treated me like an old friend. The room was huge, clean, quiet and the bed was comfortable. With the pull out sleep sofa, the room could have slept a family of four easily. There was plenty of onsite parking and the onsite Cafe was great. Really good food and fast, friendly service. The price was very reasonable and I wll be staying there again when I am in OC.

I have nothing really bad to say about the Sea Bay Hotel. It exceeded our expectations in every which way. PLENTY of parking, friendly staff, clean rooms and beds (not to mention comfortable) and only a block away from the beach. Pool was nice and clean. You definitely get your money's worth! Quiet hotel as well, no noise to be concerned about which is nice when you want to relax. The only downside is that it's a little bit of a distance to the boardwalk, but it's not bad. We really enjoyed our stay at Sea Bay and will definitely be back later this year! I will certainly recommend to friends and family!
