Reviewed August 25, 2004

This place is THE WORST HOTEL I have ever stayed in. The bathroom sink was dirty and still had toothpaste crud in it from the previous guests (not to mention the fact that the bathroom looked like it was about 50 years old), the room was dirty, the refrigerator didn't work, the towels were so cheap that they left white fuzz all over your body after using them, the mattress sagged, and the lobby was depressing. About the only good thing was that it's a block from the boardwalk but so are a lot of other hotels that are probably a lot nicer that this dive.

We only ever stay here. It's great for us. I travel with my two young children, so we get one room. We make sure we can overlook that insane bungee ride. This hotel is one block from the boardwalk and the beach, and two blocks from the amusement pier (rides, etc.) It's a great historic hotel, and the most important thing is there's a KITCHENETTE.
Breakfast and dinner in the room. CHEAP AND EASY!!! Also note -- Giuseppe's on the boardwalk is a great place to eat. Kid-friendly, and I think the kid's plate of pasta is under $2!!! Staff is really nice.
Drawback -- PARKING. Used to be free at the lot next door. Now it's $15-$25 per day, depending on season and lot use (when it starts to fill up they increase the price). So factor that in to the price. Stay on floor 4 or above, ask for ocean/boardwalk view. Ocean City is WONDERFUL. It's by far the best beach town for kids. HAVE FUN!!!

my whole family rented three rooms, we enjoyed it but there is no pool and no parking, if you can put up with that it is ok, there was also nowhere to wash your feet when you come off the beach.
