Atlantic Coast Inn
Reviewed June 10, 2014

This was our second stay at the Atlantic Coast Inn and it won't be our last. We stayed in a king room facing the back parking lot. In addition to the bed and bathroom, there was a nice couch and base cabinets with a small sink, next to the microwave and hotel sized frig. There was also a table with two chairs. Plenty of room for 2 people.

The hotel is next to a busy highway, but we slept well and didn't hear any noise from other guests. Although this is an older property, it is very clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful!

The only drawback is waiting to cross 2 highways to get to the beach. Once you get across the street, the beach is only a short block away. Many restaurants within walking distance, so you really don't need to use your car.

I stayed here for the 1st time and we enjoyed it very much. I had kids ages 11, 14 & 15 and the location is great. Just a walk outside and you have the pool at the hotel which is a nice size and very clean. You also have within a minutes walk, 2 miniature golf courses, go carts, water park, arcade, fishers popcorn, dunkin donuts, 2 ice cream shops, movie theater, shopping village and the beach across the street. All this can pretty much be seen from the hotel. It's around 140th street but I like being away from all the noise around the boardwalk. I would go back again to stay.

For the price, this is a good motel to stay at. The room is a decent size and not overly crowded, even with five people occupying it. The beds were very comfortable and I almost always slept well, not counting the nights I had to deal with an awful sunburn on my back! Most importantly, the room was clean, and the housekeeping staff was efficient and timely. The pool was also well maintained and nice for a swim, though it was pretty darn warm every time I went in it (like a bath). All in all, this motel is more than adequate for a few nights stay, though I wouldn't recommend staying for more than a week as it can get rather cramped after awhile. Can't beat the location though. It's about a block away from the beach!

Stayed at Atlantic Coast Inn for a one night stay 7/19/13. It was wonderful to find a hotel in the Ocean City area that will allow a one night stay with a very reasonable rate. The room is a nice size and very clean. It has a refrigerator and microwave although not needed for our one night stay. It also has a very clean and spacious pool that is also unusual for the Ocean City area. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The property is also in walking distance to restaurants, minigolf, go-carts and a small water park.

We have stayed here before and will definitely stay again. It is a lovely little beach motel.

I went last summer for a weekend with my sister, her son and our dad. The hotel itself was nothing fancy, but the room was clean, AC worked and beds were comfy. The location was perfect for a quick family getaway. We were 1 block walk to the beach, had the choice of a mini golf course on either side of us, Candy Kitchen, Fisher Popcorn and Ice Cream across the street, walking distance to a cute little shopping area and walking distance to a couple of nice bars to sit and enjoy a drink after a busy beach day. I will 100% return because you can't beat the price, availability and location!

Part of my hotel experience is always enjoying huge beds, huge tv's, big showers and a comfortable room day and night so unfortunately this does not qualify. However we stayed one night and it was okay, the air conditioners were really loud though and the bed was old. Good points - it was inexpensive, clean, and in a great location. We felt safe and other than the A/C it was quiet outside. However, if part of your vacation involved bad weather/staying indoors you may feel cramped here. The water was cloudy so we did not make the in-room coffee, not sure if that is an OC thing or not. We did have a convenient drink machine outside so we bought water $1.

We went to the beach for the 4th - had made reservations at one hotel, which was horrible. We found Atlantic Coast Inn while looking for somewhere else to stay. We went in to inquire about a room and Sandy was absolutely wonderful, she checked us in earley and gave us a beatiful room with a view of the beach and the pool. I cannot say enough about the value of this place, the pool was wonderful, clean and well kept. The rooms were spotless, not the newest of TV's but you are at the beach for the beach not the TV. The mattress' had zipper covers over them and were ok for comfort. The staff was extremly helpful and friendly. This will not be our last trip to the Altlantic Coast Inn. We already have it marked in our calendars for next year! You will not be disappointed.
