“old, outdated, smelly hotel”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Staff was friendly during check-in and check-out. For the price, the hotel is horrible. Needs renovation very badly. Mattresses are old. Because of the Atrium (indoor pools), even your room smells of chlorine. Outdoor pool seriously needed some cleaning. Indoor pool had chunks of hair floating around. The bird in the Atrium kept crying all day and all night long. I couldn't wait to get out of there. I do not recommend anyone with little kids to stay here.

Stayed here for 3 days 2 nights to attend a car show. Prime location as everything is fairly close. Most within walking distance. Right on the beach with an outdoor pool and an indoor pool in the Atrium. My kids loved the Atrium with the koi fish and turtles and the tropical birds. The room had a nice kitchenette, which allowed us to prepare most meals and save money.

This hotel is nice, but I guess for the price I was expecting a little more. The location is wonderful, you can't get any closer to the beach than this! And the animals in the atrium are a nice touch, especially if you are traveling with kids. However, the rooms themselves left something to be desired. They seemed to be very old and tired. Our mattresses seemed old and had a dip in the middle and were not very comfortable. We had a couple of maintenance issues with our room but the staff was prompt to fix them. There is no continental breakfast, but the restaurant is good. In all, I enjoyed my stay here, but will probably be checking out some of the other nearby hotels next time.

A wonderful weekend get away! Great Venue on the beach,with a tropical bird atrium. Nice cafe as well. Warm indoor pool and 2 hot tubs. (One is usually hotter than the other). Staff always friendly and helpful! Fast check In/Out.

Planning another visit soon!

Room Tip: 2/3rd floor rooms,facing the Bay/Highway only have outside entrance. These are the least expensive.

Hotel is great for the price, but be aware, this is not a 4 star hotel! The staff and location are great, but the hotel itself needs a little TLC. Beds and linens were good, but the bathroom could use an update.
The exercise room is a joke with broken equipment, plan on walking on the beach for exercise.
The Atrium was wonderful with the Parrots and Koi pond, just wish that care was throughout the whole hotel.

Have stayed here before and enjoyed my previous stays. I paid in advance and asked to be moved to a ocean room if one became available. On checking in there was a woman who walked in ahead of me and was able to get an ocean room. When I went to my room it was under a stairway and my "balcony" was the 3'x3' area in front of my door. The room itself was also a disappointment because the Atrium terrace view was of a gas tank. I've never contributed here but feel that I was given this room because I am a single traveller. Room 236- it should not cost what other rooms charge because it doesn't have the same amenities.

Room Tip: ask for ocean side

Our family of four enjoyed this beachfront Ocean City hotel. Our room had a kitchenette and couch which made it much more pleasant for our family. There's both an indoor pool and outdoor pool, so in addition to the beach this hotel works well for off-season or even a rainy vacation. The rooms were a little dated, but clean. We appreciated the new white linens / duvets and that there weren't gross bedspreads. My only complaint was that there seemed to be a bit of sand in the room when we arrived - but I guess it might be next to impossible to get all the sand up off the floor at a beachfront hotel.

Room Tip: Get a first floor room if you want access right to the sand, get a higher floor if you want a better...
