The staff were friendly & helpful. It was what it was, an older legacy hotel from the 50s or' 60's that...

The room was big enough for the 3 of us to sleep and shower. Everything was fairly updated and kept clean. What will keep us coming back is the staff. From the time we checked in until we left everyone was so polite and helpful when we had questionsfor food or fun. Miranda, Tushar ,and Shelby, you guys ROCK!

The room was tiny, but sufficient to sleep in. The shower was nice and hot, the window jammed, so they moved me downstairs. I am not sure, but I packed my Thyroid and ADHD medicines, and they were missing. Not sure if the cleaning crew thought that they were drugs. My friend said that the Wi-Fi went out, even with...

Room size acceptable for 2 people. Bathroom very updated and clean, (would suggest to manager to install towel racks, exhaust fan). Air conditioner worked very well, made awful noise, but room was sooooo cool. Just a few suggestions to manager, would be to tile entire hotel, especially stairs, and hallway (too hard for housekeeping to clean all that sand from...

The place was as described in the trip advisor reviews we read. Clean and the people nice and a block off the. The price was the lowest we could find after eliminating the real dumps. We also stayed at a hotel nearby and right on the beach. It was much more expensive and the room was mall and very dank....

This stay was a last minute "day before our planned travel day" reservation due to the hurricane causing us to have to cancel our planned trip to the Outer Banks. The reviews were good and although the I wasn't familiar with the exact location I booked. Although this hotel shows 2stars on most sites, don't be fooled! We were in...

My college friends and I had a wonderful time in Ocean City, when we stayed at the Buckingham Hotel. The front desk receptionist Shelby was wonderful, she gave us lots of awesome information about where to go to eat, especially to find an awesome crab cake and crab dip!!! It is really close to the beach, and you can go...

This was my second visit to Buckingham, and will remain my go-to place. The staff is extraordinarily friendly, and knowledgeable. I ask for a recommendation of where to go, where to eat, etc., and their suggestions are always spot on. They greet you with a smile every time. The rooms are clean, corner to corner. This place seems to attract...
