We stayed at Coconut Malorie several times during the 90s and thought of it as the best of the best in Ocean City. Big rooms, great service, and we could walk to Fagers Island, where we enjoyed the nightlife.
Fast forward to 2014, on our annual January trip to Ocean City, we thought we'd spend a bit more than usual and go back there. Unfortunately, it did not pan out well. The rooms, while still large, had not been updated at all since our last visit, save for the TV which probably dated back to 2002 and didn't work. The fixtures in the bathroom were rusty and dated and the toilet barely flushed. The mattress was uncomfortably firm as well. The sliding door to the balcony wasn't very tight and we could hear the wind quite loudly. It was pretty disappointing.
However, things got worse when the hotel lost power (seemed to be confined to two blocks of OC) during some rain. Then it started raining in our hotel room around the sliding door/window I mentioned above. To top it off, we heard LOUD banging and voices down the hallway, which we thought was maintenance working on something, but when I went into the hallway, I learned it was a domestic situation where a guy was busting up the room and the police came to haul him away.
The weather, power outage, and police acticity was NOT the hotel's fault, of course, although it made our choice clear that we needed to go somewhere with power, working tv, that was quiet and not raining in the room. The front desk clerk was understanding and agreed the reverse the charge, although I will be very relieved once I see the transaction clear. We went back to Holiday Inn Express, which is very nice, accomodating, and less expensive with breakfast included.
