Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with my family and had a horrible experience. The hotel is so close to the rides that all you hear from early in the afternoon until 1130 pm is loud music. For a family with a 2 year old it was the worst. It is a constant barrage of thump thump thump. Secondly, the staff is not very courteous or attentive. I would never stay here again.

We will always return to the Flanders. Our room was very clean and the friendly staff always makes the vacation fun! We enjoy staying at the Flanders because they are located at the heart of the Ocean City Boardwalk.

I just had a conference for several days here. The location is great, right in the heart of the boardwalk. The facility is fine. But the meals were very uneven, some great and some not so good. The cost is not cheap for what you get either.

We stayed at The Flanders a few weeks before the official tourist season began, so Ocean City was not overly crowded. Nice time to go!
The front desk staff could not be more helpful, friendly and resourceful! The first room we were given had been freshly painted, and the smell was not good so we requested another room which were were given immediately with no problem. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. One of the unique features of the Flanders is that the rooms are owned by individuals (a condo hotel), so the rooms are not cookie-cutter.
We loved the ambiance of the place: they play music from the 30's and 40''s in the common areas and restaurant, and the decor reflects that time as well.
We had breakfast two times in the restaurant and found the food good and and not over-priced as some hotels do. Very courteous and responsive wait staff as well.
The hotel is a short walk to the board walk.
All in all, a lovely place. We plan to be back!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the ocean.

Being Ocean City veterans, we wanted to spend the our Easter Weekend at the beach. Last minute we settled on the Flanders. We had never stayed there before. We loved every minute of it. The room (suite) was spacious for the 5 of us (2 adults and 3 kids). The staff was very accommodating. Also enjoyed a wonderful Sunday Brunch. Definitely plan to visit again.

Room Tip: Higher beach front rooms give a good view of the boardwalk

The hotel staff was warm and inviting. We booked a 1 bed 1 bath room, but upon arrival they upgraded us for free since something was wrong with the room we were intended to stay in. The room was beautiful! With 2 bedrooms and a huge bathroom. Not to mention the kitchen and washer and dryer! Since we visited in the "off season", the shops on the boardwalk were closed, but it was so quiet and relaxing. The hotel itself was gorgeous and we spent some time walking around and admiring it all. I will definitely be staying here anytime I come back to New Jersey!

We recently stayed on the 6th floor with our three kids. I think even the very most demanding guest could not have found any problems with our suite. I saw that a few people complained about their beds at the Flanders. Our mattresses were absolutely, completely perfect. The mattress on the sofa-bed was the most comfortable one I have ever laid on and I have become a kind of connoisseur of sofa-bed mattresses, since we travel a lot with our three kids. Our suite had a dishwasher and everything in the suite looked and operated as if it was new. Everyone working there was very friendly and we love the restaurant. It is our favorite restaurant in Ocean City and my kids are 5th generation Ocean City visitors. It has very good food but, at the same time, is very kid-friendly.
