“GOOD STAY BAD CHECK IN”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Wife and I stayed from Sunday September 22 through Wednesday September 25 2013. Was told we could check in at 2pm when we arrived was told very rudely by female employee no check in before 4pm and said we could wait. We stayed in snack room waiting in mean time they checked in 5 other couples after we were told no check in before 4pm.At 330pm male employee came on took my name paid are room balance and informed us our room wouldnt be ready till 4pm. Meanwhile other guest checked in after us.Finally at 415pm found out our room wasnt even serviced yet and we requested a ocean view room which male employee told us the room we are in was best view and did offer other rooms but we wanted the best view room they had. So 5pm came still no room I finally lost it asked for a couple pillows and comforters we were going to sleep in snack room since we paid for our room but didnt have one. Finally at 535pm we got our room was clean and great view. Called front desk and I applogised for my behavior but never got one back.The general manager did contact me today we discussed the situation and was very good with his customer service and I thank Greg Fleming for responding back. If it was not for the discourteous front desk staff I would have rated them higher.

Room Tip: This hotel is up ay 138th ST ask for a top floor left corner for view of ocean best view from hotel...

My now wife and I were there for our wedding and we want to thank the great staff for accommodating us and our wedding party. They were very friendly and helpful for us, and our family enjoyed their stay as well. I have stayed in this hotel for 20+ years and have never been disappointed. The rooms were clean and neat just as expected. The staff at the restaurant were first rate and the food was excellent. I look forward to staying here many more times .
Thanks Again Fenwick Inn!!!

The hotel's location was great but it has seen better days. We were fortunate enough to get a good deal on a weekend stay that included a full breakfast and a $50 coupon toward a dinner for two at their restaurant. The stay for the entire weekend cost me and my husband $259 + tax.

Our room was huge, by far one of the biggest we've stayed in. But it was in need of renovation. Wallpaper was peeling in spots and it looked like it had a ceiling leak at one time. You could tell that the hotel was built in the late 60's- early 70's because the old tile floor was peaking out between the bathtub and the ceramic tile floor. Overall, it was clean and well-maintained, though.

The staff was the MOST accommodating I've ever met! We were there for a small family wedding and they went out of their way to accommodate the bride and groom.

The after-wedding dinner was at Peaky's, which is their rooftop restaurant. Again, great staff! Food was OK. Nothing on the menu really stood out but it was well made.

We checked in on Saturday Sept 7th for one night, the lobby was dirty and smelled, the check in was okay the staff were not real friendly and the room smelled like smoke ( the hotel is non smoking) and was not the cleansest. We paid $265 for one night. Next time we will stay in west ocean city or berlin then go to the beach in the morning

Room Tip: the parking lot side wasn't noisy,

Stayed here for the Labor day holiday for 4 nights and it was just ok. Upon arrival check in was easy our room was clean and no real issues. The rooms are average size with the basics. The beds were comfortable with fluffy pillows. Biggest complaint was the bathroom it was a sauna the fan did little to nothing and its clear its been that way for a while since the paint is stripping from the door. Also bring a hairdryer as there are none in the room. There are really no outlets to charge a phone so be prepared to unplug the lights. Location was good with bus stop out front and the beach was just across the street. Didn't check out the pool area. Ate at the rooftop restaurant the first night and it wasn't bad but definitely overpriced. Did enjoy the complimentary coffee every morning. The staff was very courteous and should we come back to OC I would stay here again as this is the quieter part of OC.

And some of the staff not so friendly they don't say hello,good morning..there is a inside pool which is ok but I think they need a good makeover like maybe getting rid of that mold in the bathroom

We pulled in on our 1st vacation in 5 years. Staff would not let us check in early or even want to hear about it. Even though they were not busy, and they had rooms. When we finally got our room we requested a cot. Then again requested a cot 4 hours later. And charged us $10.00 per night extra!! Then went down to desk to request it again at 11pm. They said they spoke with us and we said we did not want it???? We asked them to have the inside of the window washed. They said it may be on the outside. I took my finger and showed them it was on the inside. They said they would have it done. The next day we asked again to have it cleaned... The next day we again asked to have it cleaned..... We added an extra day to our stay and they told us it would be $20 more than the other nights... It was a Thursday and they had an half empty parking lot. Then when we checked out and left we had to turn around as they charged us $40.00 more than quoted.

A few of the staff was caring. Many were tired of being there and not happy. Not really where you want to spend time off and have some comfort.
