Good, clean place to lay your head at night, and jump in the waves in the morning.
Good sized working fridge
Good water pressure/temperature in the bathroom
Easy to use and functioning safe
Good size plasma tv
Long large mirror in the middle of room, a plus when getting ready.
Provided in room Coupon booklet, and a book on what to do and where to go for visitors.
Free wifi, which you have to get pass code from the front desk.
Friendly front desk
Attentive housekeeping (They do not touch personal items. If you want your bed made, put all personal items to the side)
AC/heating unit works really well
Windows that open up really easily if your room needs to let fresh air in to dry damp clothes.
Great location to the beach
Reasonable for last minute booking.
Heated pool (Very useful, especially if you don't feel like dealing with sand.)
Little shower to wash off the sand away on the side of the motel.
Close to shops, activities, convenience store, restaurants/bars, and fast food restaurants: McDonald's, BKing, Papa Johns
Parking in the front and back of motel.
Not a con point, just FYI, like many people have said in previous reviews, if you are looking for Luxury, modern furnishing...check out the pictures, TB is NOT the place for you. It's simple, clean, affordable and comfy.
If you have issues being around party people, I would consider checking out other accommodations. Fortunately, it seemed as though they are conscious of this fact, and placed families on one end, and party people on another end. Thank you TB! (Or we just got really lucky)
The lock to our room would only slide in the slot when we leaned against the door. Nothing major, I was happy it worked.
No channel guide in rooms, we just looked it up online.
We left damp items to dry in the room when we went out for the evening. Didn't open windows, it gets pretty damp and musty. Fortunately, the carpet floors don't get gross after walking around the room soaking wet. Note: Don't turn off the AC, this prevents the room from feeling muggy when leaving clothes in the room to dry. This is probably common sense for veteran shore visitors, just sharing knowledge to non-vets.
Overall, happy with our weekend vacation getaway. And in love with OCMD. Thank you again Thunderbird Motel!!!
