Great for a family getaway
Went to Ocean City for a long weekend with 2 other families. The hotel is located less than a block from the beach and boardwalk which was awesome. This is an older hotel and not a 4 star place, but we were not in the room that much so it was fine. The mattresses were pretty uncomfortable which was my biggest complaint. The restaurant attached to the hotel was wonderful!! We met and spoke with a local who goes there every morning for breakfast. Highly recommend it! No frills but adequate for our needs and location was perfect. Would definitely stay there again.

Very happy with our stay!
Ladies at the desk were super friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable. Beds were just fine and pillows were extra nice but I always bring my own. It was pretty clean but could use more cleaning in the bathroom corners and baseboards. Kitchen floor is nasty looking. I thought it was chunks of dirt but seemed be gouges in the flooring. Needs to be replaced. All in all great location and worked out perfectly for my daughter and I for a short stay. I’d stay again.

Nice spot
Perfect location near boardwalk, beach. Close to several good places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Room had nice size fridge, microwave and small stove. Property needs an ice machine. Sun deck by pool had lots of seating and umbrellas. Pool could have been cleaner, very murky.

Great location with a side view of the beach and boardwalk. Rooms were clean and the beds were firm. Area around the complex was clean and well lit.
