If you are used to paying $50 for a hotel stay when you travel then this will be the best hotel you ever stayed at. If you are used to staying at Marriott then keep looking.

The room had no hair dryer, the shampoo bottle had been refilled so many times the label wore off and you didn’t know what it was, there were two soap boxes, one didn't have any soap in it.

The room was small and the bed was about 10 years old. The covers were old as well.

They are very hard to find. They don't have an address. Travel down South Philadelphia St. Turn left onto Wicomico St. Make next left and immediately pull into parking lot on right. Don't think, don't look, just park. You'll notice their small sign that blends into the hotel once you park.

Only expect to use the elevator for when you check in. They have to bring you up and down and it's a waste of time to grab someone.

Our bathroom did not have a sink. The sink was in the bedroom. Literally, there was a sink with no counter in the bedroom. That's a new one for me.

The TV was old and had no remote control.

Expect to be woken up at all hours because the class of people that stays there. Imagine drunk bums yelling and screaming while they walk to their room.

Great locaton on the boardwalk.

Internet access is $4.99 an hour.

Our second stay at the Atlantic was just as nice as the first time. The family owned hotel is so accomamodating and welcoming. The staff is great and very helpful. The hotel is kept very clean and is so charming. We will be back next year!

I found this hotel by chance surfing the internet looking for reasonble beachfront place to stay in OC. This hotel is family owned and operated and the owners pride is evident by the cleanliness of the hotel property. This hotel built in the early 20's is by far better kept than most newer properties that I have stayed in. My teenagers loved the old time elevator and the excellent location right on the famous boardwalk and beach. Being a seasoned traveler I'll give up bells and whistles any day to get charm, history and clean comfortable rooms.

Stayed here with my 2 teenagers for a few days while visiting my parents in Ocean Pines, Could not have been happier. Cheapest rate of anywhere right on the boardwalk, great location while still being very quiet at night. More noise from hallway chatter than boardwalk. Elevator needs to be operated by hotel staff, so mostly use steps, but that is fine considering all the boardwalk food you consume while there. Outside shower to use after checkout, friendly staff, would definitely go there again. Clean rooms and all shampoo and lotions replenished.

My family and I just stayed at the Atlantic Hotel in Ocean City, Maryland and loved it. The staff was very nice and accomidating. The Hotel itself was very clean and convienent to everything that the boardwalk had to offer. The inside of the hotel reminded me of one of those little hotels in the French Quarter in New Orleans. I would definately stay there again. I don't think there is another hotel on the boardwalk where you get so much for so little. I was reading a review about parking at the Atlantic hotel. We had no problem. We moved our vehicle several times during our stay and never had a problem getting a parking spot.

Pictures speak a thousand words. This hotel was a great find thanks to a Trip Adviser review. The hotel is located on the boardwalk behind a row of stores including MR DUCKS which makes it a little difficult to see, unless you are looking for it. The location is great, nice pool, clean rooms and VERY reasonable nightly rate. The oceanfront/boardwalk porch with rocking chairs is the roof of the stores as you can see from the pictures. Great for a weekend stay!

Seventh stay,,nice, warm and clean pool,,parking at the door,,nice staff especially the cleaning crew,,they take time and great care to "de-beach" your room. Make sure to request a room w/ micro-fridge if you want one,,if you need a larger room,,ask for 7 or 11 in the courtyard. My Beach Hotel!
