“Locks, chains, and curfews”
Reviewed 10 July 2010

Me and 7 of my friends went here for our senior trip in June of 2009 expecting a nice apartment that we all could fit in comfortably and have some of our other friends over to hang out, we expected wrong. Upon walking into our room at check in we noticed the screen door was broken and looked like it had been kicked a couple times. The chairs all had slices in the seats. The fold out couch in the living room was broken and crooked when folded out causing both people to end up practically rolling off while sleeping. The kitchen pots and pans had spider webs and bugs in them. The kitchen floor had glass on it. The fridge as well looked like it had been kicked in and punched. There were bugs in the bedrooms on the floors crawling around. In the bath tub when we arrived there was clumps of hair in the bottom of the tub and on the walls and the water was rarely hot and around the bath tub on the floor was cracks and the tub was starting to unseal from the floor. And we got a laugh out of the decorative snow scene picture in the living room when it was summer time outside. We went to the owner Angelo to report everything about the room and he insisted his wife had cleaned the room from top to bottom before we had got there and his wife and him both seemed very rude and aggravated that we would complain about the rooms. We were all teens so I guess they didn't take us serious so we were told they wouldn't do anything about it. So we returned to our room angry and decided to tough it out since we was there mainly for the ocean and not to sit in the room. We all then got showered and dressed and went out to dinner. Upon our arrival back to the room the gate opening closest to our room was locked with a serious lock and chain on it. Confused, we walked around to the other gate opening and was met by Angelo and 2 of his friends sitting in lawn chairs guarding the opening and made sure that we all was paying to stay there since we was not allowed to have guests after a certain time. We are 18 and 19 right? We don't need baby sat when were on vacation. If we wanted baby sat we would have invited our parents along. The next night we had a couple of our friends over who were staying at a different motel, not thinking it was that big of a deal since we were paying for the place and they was just visiting not sleeping there. Upon walking past Angelo and his group of 'guards' they stopped them and asked if they was staying in the place and they said no and after yelling at them for visiting past our 'curfew' Angelo even went as far as trying to make them pay for being in the room. They did not stay but made sure they did not come back. Angelo's friends constantly made trips all around the building and kept a watch on everyone. When we checked out they would not give us our security deposit and told us they would mail it to us if we deserved it back and the room was in good shape. When it was not even close to okay shape when we showed up. 4 months went by and we still did not receive a check so I had my father call and they sent us 245 out of our 280 deposit and said the money they kept was for the maid. What maid? What a rip off this place was. They at times made us feel very uncomfortable. I would never go back to this place or tell anybody teenagers or family member to go back. This place could use all new owners to fix everything up and not run it so terribly.

I took my extended family on a week getaway to Ocean City. This is our third year in a row staying at Nocks apartments**not expensive compared to other properties we checked in the area**family oriented**friendly staff**clean rooms** closed to everything** cozy**what else can you ask for**kids had fun, we had fun. It's worth it. Just booked one week for this summer.

When I was a kid our family would vacation at Nock Apartments every year. I now go with my wife and kids for our annual summer vacation. We absoutely love the place and the customer service. It's a great, private location right at the heart of the boardwalk. Having a kitchen saves a ton of time & money. And the owners are pleasant, hardworking, and professional - they really go the extra mile. Very family friendly.

The best thing about this place is the location. It is just a few steps from the boardwalk and the beach. The apartment where I stayed with my family was a cozy, clean, and comfortable apartment. The place had a new carpet and it was freshly painted. You feel at home because you have kitchen, living room, bathroom and private bedrooms. How can you compare this with those overpriced hotel rooms or an uncomfortable condo that costs 4 to 5 times more than Nock Apartments. Nock Apartments has an affordable, reasonable price for the location. All the apartments have a complete kitchen. The kitchen saved our family a lot of money, so we didn’t have to go to an overpriced restaurant to eat. Saving money, feeling at home and enjoying the beach only a few feet away is a perfect way to have a memorable vacation. I recommend you and your family to go to Nock apartments.

i vacation every year in oc. in hopes of saving a few hundred dollars i decided to try the nock apartments thinking how bad can it be, we spend most of the time outside at the beach or boardwalk. how wrong could i be. the kitchen had a large, old gas stove that made the room about a hundred degrees at all times. the rest of the 2 story apartment was cooled by a window a/c unit that hardly worked. upstairs there was another window unit that did not cool, just a fan. tv had only 5 stations, no remote. big issue for 3 females-no place to plug in blow dryers and curling irons. you literally had to unplug something to use a plug, generally located behind something. absolute worst was the filthy bathroom. i kid you not-there was a mushroom growing in the grout. no one had ever seen such a thing. i am used to dampness and rust in bathrooms in oc, this was simply filth!!! we stayed one night after trying to blow dry hair and blowing a fuse...i went to the office and asked for money returned due to all these problems and the seemingly nice couple turned into belligerant bullies. we repacked, left, paid for a unit in a nearby complex that i had stayed at many time before. we do not frequent high end, fancy condos....nor do we pay to stay in filth. never, ever again.

Looking for somewhere to stay in OC? Nock Appartments are the place. The spacious rooms are very quiet and are only a walking distance from the beach. The owners are amazing and they make you feel at home. Next time I visit OC, I know where I'm staying!
