Hi there. I've only been to OC for evening visits when we've stayed in Rehoboth. That's our usual weekend shore location. This year I'm looking at staying in OC for Labor Day, which I know is booking up quickly. It's been several years since I've even been to OC, so I'm pretty clueless as to where to stay. We're a family of four, kids are 9 and 11. I'd like to be close to the boardwalk, possibly on it. I've had recommendations for the Princess Royale, however that just seems so far away from the boardwalk for a weekend.
Other places that have availibilty as of now that seem to fit the bill are the Grand Hotel, Park Place and Quality Inn Boardwalk. All are on the Boardwalk, just at different locations. What are the pros and cons? At the Quality and Grand we can get ocean view or ocean front, but at Park Place only Bay View, which seems to be street view to me. However Park Place gets consistently the best views on here. All are priced pretty much the same. I'd like to have an outdoor pool.
Does anyone have any opinions as to which may be the best choice for us? Or any suggestions as to someplace I've overlooked? Which location may be the best? We really would like the convenience of beachfront, near the boardwalk but not a lot of crowds or noise if possible which is why I was thinking the Grand might be better since it's at the end of the boardwalk.
Thanks for the help!
