We booked at the Atlantic because we wanted a hotel on the boardwalk that was reasonably priced. Since the Atlantic got pretty good reviews on Tripadvisor we decided to give it a try. The best thing about this hotel is its location. It's right at the beginning of the boardwalk. The hotel has a WONDERFUL deck overlooking the boardwalk and, obviously, facing the beach and ocean. My husband and I enjoyed sitting on the deck to people watch in the evenings and we even watched the sunrise one morning. The hotel itself is very, very quaint. The Atlantic was one of the first, if not the first, hotel on the boardwalk. The hotel managers have maintained the hotel in such a way that it is easy to imagine what it was like in the days when it was first built -- but in a good way!! (Please be warned, if you are looking for a fancy, modern, luxury hotel, do not stay here. You will be disappointed!!) I have the pros and cons of this hotel listed below but I did want to commment on some of the comments others have made about this hotel. Some people have complained about having to use the stairs. Unless you have some physical limitation or health condition that prevents you from doing it, who really can complain about having to climb stairs. The hotel is only three stories, for Pete's sake! All the food that you eat on the boardwalk needs to be burned off somehow!! There is an elevator at this hotel but it is an old-fashioned one that requires the staff there to operate it. We only used it to take our luggage in and out of the hotel. Also, people have complained about not being able to find the hotel. We had no problems finding it when we entered, " 1 Wicomico Street, Ocean City, Maryland" into our GPS system. It took us right there. As for the sink in the room -- definitely weird, but not a deal breaker.
Location, location, location!!!!
Sundeck was awesome
Hotel and our room were clean -- but I did find little bit of mildew on grout between a few of the shower tiles -- not a huge deal but I noticed it.
Staff was friendly and helpful
Quiet, family hotel
A/C -- pretty noisy but didn't keep us awake at night.
Wifi is not free.
Rooms are on the small side and don't have a lot of seating other than the bed
