First the Pros: 1.Great location! Quick & easy to get to after a long drive. 2. Great location! I know, but I am saying it again, right on the beach! 3. Great ocean views! Stayed in room 720, overlooked the tennis courts & pool area and beyond that, the beautiful ocean view! The grounds of the hotel are pretty & well kept. 4.Great pool & pool bar & bartenders were great! 5.Great food at the pool bar restaurant, perfect burgers, chicken fingers, sandwiches all at a pretty reasonable price. 6. Nice that every room has a mini kitchen, even though we didn't really use it much. Was terrific to have a full size fridge! 7. Balcony was a nice size, again great view! When we first arrived, I have to say I wasn't thrilled with my reception, but everyone we encountered during our time was friendly and helpful. ESPECIALLY the 2 men that were at the desk when we checked out and then found our car battery dead! These two men were EXCEPTIONAL!! I am sorry I did not get their names! They wound up finding us jumper cables and jumped the car!!! Shortly we were on our way!! THANKS SO MUCH!!
Honestly have to say the only major con was the beds. Could definitely use some new mattresses. The room we had was clean & smelled clean, the hallway could use some air fresheners though. The room, for the most part it was updated enough, maybe some new carpeting or just tile in my opinion. This is a older hotel with updates, it is not a high end resort hotel. However, they do offer activities and some entertainment, like a resort would. A magician, kids cooking classes, a juggler, tennis lessons. Was more than I expected.
All in all, If I come back to Ocean City, I would stay here again.
