“First Stay at Princess Royale”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This was our first visit at the Princess Royale. We always stayed at Q.I on 33rd street for the last 15 plus years..but that property is not being maintained so I started searching for another hotel and came across Princess Royale. This place is wonderful and we had an awesome time here. I would have to say the best part is this place is "Super Clean" and that is a must for me. The rooms are nice and spacious with a nice kitchenette. No sqeaky beds here...they were the Tempur-pedic beds..which was very nice. All employees that we met were nice and polite. Indoor pool was great and the kids loved it. Might want to turn the heat up a little bit in the pool. Seemed a little chilly for a heated pool. Hotel has three hot tubs which were great. I must add this..My little granddaughter got sick all over the bed sheets, pajamas and stuffed animals. I went to wash the items but found no detergent available. I went down to the front desk and asked if they had detergent and she said no that the convenience store (that is in the lobby) had some. Well at 3:00 A.M. that was not going to help me. I had to get this mess cleaned up. It ended up that the lady at the front desk asked one of the other employees to take these items down to laundry and wash them for me and then deliver them back to my room. Which he did!. Now they did not have to do any of this for me. This just goes to show how they can go out of there way for the guests! Now that is excellent guest service which I will not forget. We are so looking forward to coming back next year. Thanks Princess Royale for a very nice stay!

This was our first time staying at Princess Royale and we loved it! We went for our honeymoon and the room was beautiful. The staff was very nice. Our side view of the ocean was breath taking. I would recommend Princess Royale to anyone. The pool inside was nice and they have hot tubs inside and outside which was cool.

This year was our second stay at Princess Royale. This hotel has a warm atmosphere and a great place to stay even with young children. My kids loved the indoor pool and the entire family loved being able to walk outside of the hotel and right onto the beach. We stayed in a sideoceanview king suite. The room has a seperate bedroom with a lockable door so that the parents can still have privacy. The hotel also has portable cribs (pack n plays) for a small $15 fee. There is also a grocery store within 5 minutes driving time so that you can save some money by cooking in the kitchenette (has a stove but no oven). Overall our stay was great and we look forward to going back in 2013.

I stayed here for a weekend in September of 2012 for work/pleasure, and this property definitely has some things going for it such as the nice indoor pool area with big glass surroundings, the free garage parking, and the large rooms with the amazing Tempur-pedic beds.

The property does a good job doing its best to maintain its facilities, and it's nice that it's one of the few properties in Ocean City that is smoke-free. The room we had overlooked the pool area, and was a nice-sized room with plenty of space.

I was very put-off by the lack of attention to cleanliness and detail, however, in our suite's bathroom. The drop-ceiling was sagging and stained, and there were many hairs on the floor and in the shower when we arrived, plus a few long hairs tangled into the bath towels (not a fun surprise when drying off after a shower). The shower head had a painfully "prickly" spray, and the curtain liner had seen better days.

I see this property is rated highly out of other hotels in Ocean City, so I imagine it's great for families and does have that appeal of being non-smoking and on the strip, yet away from the louder sections. The front desk does run a tight ship and does try to maintain good customer service, from what I could tell.

My entire family booked several rooms at The Princess Royale in Ocean City, MD for the Mid-Atlantic Wine Festival Weekend. This hotel is top-notch! The rooms are very clean, the service (from the bell hops to the front desk, to the cleaning staff) were all incredibly friendly, courteous, and promptly responsive. Our rooms overlooked the pool and the pool was equally as nice. We didn't have time to check out the jacuzzis but they looked inviting, as well. We will DEFINITELY be staying here again and are hoping to take advantage of the many other amenties offerred when we have more time next trip. Highly recommended - great resort for couples & families.

My immediate family and inlaws vacationed at the Princess Royale Resort for a family getaway. We stayed in the condos and they were excellent. While some of the rooms have an older look, our condo was very updated and perfect for us. The full kitchen was a plus as well as the comfortable bedding. I will most certainly travel back again. The indoor pool is also a plus.

I loved the room and the ocean view! It was very nice,clean and well located hotel. My only problem was there was supposed to be free wifi, which they did not have and no one that worked at the hotel really seemed to want to be very helpful in this matter or some room service. We had requested something the first night and was told it would be brought right up, but never was. Since it was not a big deal, we did not press the matter for either the wifi or the service. But i would go back as the hotel is very nice in all other respects! Just think i would be a little less patience where the customer service is a little lacking.
