“One of the better Courtyard's”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

I was surprised at how big the room was. I booked a king with sofabed with city view. The sofa with a chair had it's own little area with a large flatscreen tv on the wall. The sleeping area had a king bed, another tv and chair, desk and a small counter with small fridge and micorwave underneath it. The bathroom had a deep whirlpool tub, plenty of counter space on vanity. There was also a separate vanity right outside the bathroom. The room was like a mini suite which was nice. The quality of the bed, sheets and shower is what you would expect from a Courtyard. It's not the best but what expected. The season hasn't kicked-off yet so it was very quiet at the hotel - not many people working. Check-in staff were ok - not very talkative but not unfriendly. The seafood at the restaurant were very fresh. Portions were huge so we were happy that there was a fridge and microwave in the room. The waiter (sorry, I'm so bad with names) was very friendly and attentive so at least he made us feel welcome. The hotel was pretty much what I would expect from a Courtyard - actually a little better because of the size of the room.

Room Tip: City view rooms are very noisy as you hear traffic as soon as the sun rises.

This hotel was right on the boardwalk but since it wasn't the "season" not too busy. The rooms are funky and very clean, the restaurant had amazing food (order the crab cakes broiled so you can taste the crab). Our server was wonderful. Although the room was great, the balcony on floor 2 overlooking an empty pool was not. Iasked about a higher up roomand they said they were all booked. We are gold members of Marriott and when we booked our room they said we were getting an upgrade, Marriott obviously does not know this hotel does not "upgrade" and all points members get the same room for 35k points. There are two chairs on the deck, and you can't fit anything else. We were just staying one night so it was okay but in summer, pay to be higher up.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor.

I have stayed at this hotel at least six times and have always been able to use reward points for at least part of my stay. As a Gold member, all of the documentation that I receive from Marriott says not black out periods. Someone needs to remind the hotel of this policy. When I wanted to use points for two of the four nights I had reserved I was told that there were no more reward rooms available. What????? the reservation was booked months in advance and there are no black out dates. I was told that the hotel restricted the number of reward rooms because of the events for the weekend. When I pushed on no black out dates, they came back and said that I could use points, but would need to move in the middle of my stay because the reward room could not be an ocean facing room. What????? I continued to push the issue and Amber in Member Services was able to convince the hotel to allow me to use points for the first two nights and pay for the weekend nights (higher rate) and to have an ocean facing room for the entire stay. This was very disappointing as I have never had any push back using points at any Marriott property. It looks like I may start staying more at Hilton.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view of the ocean.

We are Marriott gold reward members and have stayed at this hotel numerous times. This last time will be our last. When we arrived, we noticed (you can't miss it) the boardwalk construction and asked at the front desk for another room. We were told they were sold out but that construction didn't start until late morning. We took our bottom floor room for $200/night. On Monday morning, the construction started at 7AM. It was literally less than 50 yards from our window. The noise was horrible! We were out by 8, of course. Marriott should NOT have anyone stay in the rooms so close to the construction site. We won't ever return.

Thank you for your response regarding your recent stay at the Courtyard by Marriott-Ocean City. We do apologize for the construction that the Town of Ocean City was doing on the Boardwalk to renovate the boardwalk. All the renovations have been completed on the Boardwalk in front of our hotel and we hope that you will make a trip back to Ocean City to enjoy our beautiful hotel.
Our staff would love another opportunity to "WOW" you without the construciton on the Boardwalk.
Thank you,

Was a little disappointed about the rooms VIEW OF THE OCEAN. Most rooms are on the side and only SMALL VIEW OF THE OCEAN. The balcony is EXTREMELY SMALL only 2 chairs barely fit on. The indoor pool is like an OVERSIZED TUB!! Can't imagine being there in the summer when it is full!!
. Overall the room was nice A TYPICAL MARRIOTT. Would definitely NOT STAY THERE DURING PEAK SUMMER TIME. For the money stay in one of the condos a full kitchen and nice size pool. OVERPRICED FOR WHAT YOU GET.

We were not able to apply our AAA rating for the room as we were told that because we booked online we booked an upgraded room. There was not any mention of the booked room being an "upgrade". However, when we arrived, we were generously given a corner room, oceanfront upgrade. We were shocked when we opened the drapes to discover that there was no boardwalk frontage as it was totally under construction! It obstructed what otherwise would have been a lovely view from the second floor- a bit close to the mess. You had to walk a block in either direction to get to the boardwalk! We knew this was not the fault of the Marriott, as it was a city repair, but we were surprised that there was no mention of this on the website and we were still charged the same! This is an interesting property.....the layout to access the rooms is strange and there is no pay per view in the room or any DVD players. Complimentary coffee was available in the room and downstairs in the lobby in the morning. Internet was free in the room. Our breakfast in the conveniently located restaurant was satisfying and the pricing was reasonable. Service was good. Bar staff was terrific. Pool area seemed small and was crowded. The room could have been a bit cleaner-the wrapped glasses were really dirty. Cleaning staff were very polite and friendly. Ashley at the front desk was as helpful as possible, but her response to our concerns was practiced. When we finally spoke with the manager, Spencer, he gave us a $50 discount on the total price of our stay, which we appreciated, since we were awakened by the construction crew first thing Monday morning! Overall, I don't think we would stay at this property again since it is not far from an all oceanfront suites Holiday Inn on the boardwalk with more amenities for a lower price.

Room Tip: I would definitely request a higher floor than the second. It's too close to the boardwalk (onc...

Thank you for your response TerrapinTravelers. The Town of Ocean City had been working on a renovation project of the Boardwalk, but the construction has been completed. We take great pride in our hotel and want all our guest to enjoy their stay with us. Our rooms do not have pay per view movies; however, we do have limited amount of DVD players that we can put into a guest room to view a movie. We hope that you give us another opportunity to "WOW" you and your family on your next visit to Ocean City.

This hotel is located right on the beach and boardwalk (currently being rebuilt), a great location allowing you to walk to all of the boardwalk area. The site appears new (told it was a rebuilt from another facility), rooms are spacious and have a fridge and microwave which is handy. We asked locals for good places to eat, and they, not knowing where we were staying, gave us the name of the restaurant at the hotel. It is owned separately and has been a local favorite for years - we ate there one night and it was exceptional. Staff were helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: pick a room in the front, on the 3rd or 4th floor- these rooms have balconies which are nice
