“vacation/wedding at the princess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

I had my wedding at the princess on May 18th 2013. From the time I checked in to the time I left I felt like a princess. We rented 3-3bedroom condos a meet and greet room by the pool and then had a 2 bedroom condo for the wedding night. Each room was amazing and the view of the ocean were wonderful. The staff was amazing especially Carrie Baker the banquet manager. She saw that my every wish and need was accomplished. It did rain on the wedding day so the staff transformed one of their other reception rooms in 20 min to accomadate my now indoor wedding. The food was out of this world! people are still complimenting me on it. This hotel has it all and i recommend it to everyone and it is very kid friendly also. Very clean also!
Can't wait to go back!!!!

had a wonderful weekend stay at this gem of a hotel...beautiful spacious room overlooking the ocean...staff were so friendly and we just had a really great time staying here...indoor pool was clean and resteraunt served a nice breakfast. location is away from the boardwalk but the bus service stops right in front of hotel so getting up and down the strip is easy.Book this..you wont regret it.

Room Tip: try and get an oceanview..you get a balcony...other rooms you will be staring at other buildings

Our room was a suite, complete with a king bed, small fully equipped kitchen with another room having a couch that contained another bed. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the pool and there was a limited view of the ocean. It was pretty far from the boardwalk but it had its own beach access. The weather was cool so the beach was nearly empty May 13-16, 2013. There is a nice restaurant and we had a sit down breakfast one morning and a breakfast buffet the next. I would recommend the Eggs Benedict and the omelets were also very good. The hotel has free parking in a garage across the street and there were plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The hotel is located in north Ocean City, not too far from Delaware and Rehobath Beach. We tried to find several highly rated restaurants listed on Trip Advisor but the first was closed and the second we never found using our GPS.

I can't say enough about the staff...friendly, kind, courteous and everyone was very accommodating with some special needs that I had. The food was good. The view was spectacular and the bed was so comfortable!! The hotel is away from the boardwalk with it's own private beach so you have the beauty and tranquility that I seek when going on vacation, but it's still close to all the action so you can have the best of two worlds!

We arrived right before the Memorial Day weekend, and while we were impressed with the customer service and friendliness of the front desk staff, we were not that pleased with the room. For example, the remote control to one of the TVs was missing and the bathtub would fill up with water to the halfway mark (and higher) only after a short 5-10 mins shower. Fortunately, the cleaning staff was very prompt and were were pleasantly surprised to see everything clean and bed made after leaving for less than 1 hour for breakfast downstairs.

Also, the view from the room was amazing, as it overlooked the atrium with the indoor pool, and then right beyond the enclosed glass was the beautiful sand and ocean.

On a final note, the restaurant inside (Schooner's) was okay, but I enjoyed the breakfast buffet much more than I enjoyed my dinner there.

All being said, the hotel is centrally located and I would stay there again.

Overall~Mediocre at best...not necessarily a "resort" per say.
Building/Property~Decent...some attemtps at renovations and upgrades are noted along with the outdated look of the hotel. Makes it look mix matched, lobby and public hallways look like a 1980s cruise ship. Location and accesibility to the beach was great however.
Rooms~Dated and tired. Get rid of the ugly bed spreads; no one uses spreads anymore. The bed made up for it though, its the posturepedic memory foam beds. No housekeeping until late in the evening, no biggie though but could be an inconvenience to some.
Food & Beverage~Mediocre...low quality food products used. Breakfast buffet was only $10, so you could only imagine what you get for that. Using left over food items from banquet events to supply the primerib buffet in the restaurant was "tacky". The use of contract labor is acceptable in this industry and for the most part they are decent people from eastern europe but they are not trained or supervised. No F&B management visible so service standards were heavily compromised.
Amenities~Gift shop and convenience store closes early, people use these services more in the evening hours when they return from their activities. No towel service on the beach and you are not allowed to take the pool towels to the beach. The pool attendant Kenny was great in trying to assist everyone with this dilemma.
Front Desk & Bell Services~The bell staff are the ambassadors of this hotel. Very professional, cordial and polite despite the heavy occupancy. The front desk were accomodating and patient. Once again no management presence anywhere on the property.
