Two weeks prior to booking a night at Ocean Pines, I stayed at a big hotel on the beach a little farther north. Though that hotel was nice, the rooms were too noisy for me.
I booked a night at Ocean Pines so I could visit a friend who was in town from Alaska. I knew I wanted something quiet and cottage like, not another big hotel. I found this place because most of the other motels in the area required a three night minimum, this place did not. I chose Ocean Pines because it was under $100 (before taxes) and it was on the beach side.
My room (#6) had a high ceiling with wood beams exposed, windows on three sides, a full kitchen, a bathroom and a table-for-two outside the front door. It wasn't as pristine as the expensive hotels, but it was clean. The sheets smelled good, not like bleach, but clean.
When I checked-in, I mentioned to Sandy that I needed to buy coffee for a morning cup on the beach. She gave me coffee, filters and bottled water.
I would recommend Ocean Pines for the friendly staff, the clean room, the proximity to the beach and for the chance to be lulled to sleep by the waves crashing on the shore.
