“Nice place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel after a horrible night at Best Western down the street. It was truly a world of difference. The hotel is very clean, the staff was friendly, and we enjoyed it very much. The rooms were spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a tub with a shower and also a separate shower. It was very nice and clean. Although we weren't on the beach we could definitely see it from our huge windows in the room! If we ever has to go back to Ocean City we definitely would stay there and only there.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for one night. I chose this hotel because it had an indoor pool because I knew the weather wasn't going to be great the entire stay. The hotel room was very clean and the bathroom was a decent size. The front desk people were extremely nice and were happy to help us at all times. The only thing I did not like was that if you did not have the fan on at night in the bathroom, then the smoke from below us would come in through the vents. However, they did say that they will be changing it so that the rooms below cannot smoke. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights. We drove all night and arrived @ 9am - obviously well before their normal 4pm check-in time. We were in desperate need of some sleep and wanted to check-in a bit eaarly if possible. Front desk employee was very pleasant and was able to check us in @ 11:30 and even upgraded our room.

We stayed right across from an elevator and din't hear a thing - maybe it was a slow weekend or we just had respectful people staying on our floor! Liked that there were 2 different pillow options - my husband likes firm and I like soft pillows so we were both happy.

My only complaint was the TV. We only watched TV while getting ready in the AM and right before bed - other than that, we were hardly in the room. I think it was a digital subscription? Had to turn the TV off and then back on again every time we attempted to change the channel. It kept freezing up. Not sure if there was a bad cable connection.

Loved the small park and walking path behind the hotel - had a great view.

I stayed at this location only because I was playing in a football tournament across the street. It was fine...comfortable beds, good TV, free breakfast, etc. It's about a 15 minute drive down to the southern part of O.C., but in a good location if you wanted to head North (to Fenwick, Bethany, Rehoboth, Dewey) or South to where the Ocean City action is.

My husband and I stayed for two nights. Enjoyed the free breakfast and close beach access. Staff was great and provided us with dinner recommendations. Not within walking distance to boardwalk or attractions but I would definitely stay again.

Trip with kids. Hotel Staff was super. Beds were so uncomfortable that after 3 nights, I ache all over. I think the location stinks, too. I have never been to OC before and did not realize how far from the boardwalk we would be.
