“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

This was a nice place to stay. It is situated right on the boardwalk and within walking distance to almost anything you need i.e., restaurants, the pier (although a bit of a walk), a CVS (right around the corner), and shopping (primarily beach items). There is a fitness center and a pool on the 3rd floor. Our room had an ocean view and was on the lower level and, while this might be convenient for those who want easy access to the boardwalk, I found the amount of activity outside was a bit distracting (we came down during senior week) and the view of the ocean was not that great. If you want a bit more privacy and a better view, I would suggest asking for a room that is on one of the higher floors. In addition, as other reviewers pointed out, the parking in the garage is a bit tight; however, we were able to fit our Ford explorer in with minimal difficulty. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the Captains Table (the restaurant in this hotel) is excellent, although a bit expensive. The other hotel, that was in the same price range as the Marriott, was the Hilton; however, that was further down the road and definitely not in the "center" of the action.

Our son and his wife hosted our three days at Ocean City for our anniversary, along with our other son. We enjoyed the board walk, ocean, and nice restaurants. We had ground floor rooms which gave us a patio right by the boardwalk! My ONLY complaint was the doorway from the patio into the room had a raised area, which we had to be careful stepping over, so we wouldn't trip. On the plus side, I was sick one night and had to call housekeeping and they sent someone very quickly .
All in all, a great experience and great choice of rooms!

My husband and I have stayed at this Courtyard at least 6 times in the last 2 years. We like the hotel and it is right on the boardwalk (albeit the far end). The rooms are very nice and well kept and we have often been able to upgrade to ocean front. There are a lot of hotels on the strip however we are Marriott die hards and this Courtyard does not disappoint. Visiting Ocean City off season and getting ocean front is a real treat as it is peaceful and quiet so you get to enjoy the sound of the surf.

I stayed in this hotel for one night last week and was really impressed. The location is perfect, on the beach and boardwalk. Check-in was pleasant and professional. When I asked for restaurant recommendations, the on-site restaurant was recommended. I am sometimes wary of those, but Captain's Table was really good. I ordered room service for dinner and brunch the next morning.

I was given a corner room facing the ocean. It was still cool, so I was able to sleep with the door open and hear the crashing waves all night. Front facing rooms are the best and have sheltered balconies. However, the way the hotel is situated allows for ocean views from most rooms. The interior furniture and carpet were a tad worn, but everything was clean and cared for.

Highly recommended. I am in the general area frequently and will plan to stay here when feasible.

It's always great when you can go to sleep and wake up to the waves crashing in the background. The review that you posted frweaver, highlight the great aspects of our oceanfront rooms. Our onsite restaurant has great food and is convient for our guest if they would like to stay in their room and enjoy room service. Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Ocean City!

Last weekend was my third time at this hotel ~ and possibly my last. On every other occasion, we were greeted at the front desk like we were family, The rooms were beautiful and clean and room service was top notch. This time, the people at the front desk never cracked a smile, there was sand in our beds, and room service was pathetic. I had told my family how wonderful the staff, the room and the service was and I was totally embarrassed by the whole experience. My brother commented that it seemed like the hotel was cutting corners to save money and there were a lot of unhappy employees. I don't know what happened since last fall, but from my experience I have to agree.

We appreciate your comments regarding your stay with us Bonnie W. Our staff is very personable and enjoys dealing with our guest; however, I do apologize if the staff member that you came across did not come across in a friendly manner. We would have been more than happy to fix any issue that you had during your stay with us. I have passed on your comments regarding the room service to the owners of the Captains Table. The hotel has actually added new bedding to our guest rooms and replaced the carpet in our lobby/guest corridors since your last stay. Our staff looks forward to giving you the "WOW" factor on your visit to Ocean City.

Second time here and it was perfect again! We were in a city view balcony and you can still see the ocean. The hotel is kept impeccable! Room had a microwave and a mini fridge. We will probably be back! Location is perfect because its in the middle of boardwalk. Also if you decide to skip room service they leave you a care bag on your door. So thoughtful!

This is a very new hotel in an excellent location. No is not equipped with a kitchen etc as many of the other Ocean City hotels are but in every other way this is by FAR the best hotel in Ocean City --- I looked at rooms in the Hilton and two Holiday Inns and they do not come close.
The rooms are standard Courtyard but in very good condition and they do have a micro fridge and coffee maker. The facilities of the hotel are lovely --- super little gym -- very spacious actually --a lovely pool/hot tub. A very attractive large lobby with free coffee in the mornings (unlike most Courtyards which have done away with this to their detriment).
The staff were all very good.
There is a third party restaurant in the hotel in which I dined and was very impressed.
Than and well one CY Ocean City from a Marriott Elite traveler.
