“Very accommodating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012

Booked the hotel just a few days before our stay as a last minute vacation because of the great reviews. Unfortunately had a family emergency (7week old baby got sick) and the hotel was totally accommodating. We really appreciate their help. Thank you JD and owner. Can't wait to come back next year when the kids are a bit older.

Just my husband and I for a 2 night getaway to OCMD. Found this place on here called to get a rate. When they quoted me 2 nights at $155 per night I immediately booked it. Everything online was well over $200 per night for a weekend. Arrived and check in was smooth- ladies behind the counter were funny. Had to pay up front- didn't require a credit card which was nice.
Room was decent & clean. Floors were scary- but it's the beach. Air conditioner wasn't cold. We called the front desk and they came to check it out right away- we were headig out for the night and they said they had a call in to maintenance. When we came back it was either replaced or fixed- it was nice and cold- made us happy. Pool looked decent although we didn't use it. There was a vending machine for soda/water and snacks. Beds were pretty hard- and each room has 2 double beds. Not sure if we would stay here again- depends on our budget- this was definitely a budget friendly motel - no frills. Flat screen TV very small fridge &
Microwave- again good for 2 nights max in my book.

Small, clean, quiet motel. Staff is very friendly, helpful and always available.
Great location, only a half a block from the busy boardwalk but so quiet you wouldn't even realize all that action is so close. Pool, room and grounds are clean and well maintained and you always have a parking space.
Thanks to the other reviewers on TripAdvisor for helping me find this motel.

This was an amazing motel. My husband, myself and our two boys stayed here. It was the best family vacation ever. Very clean and the staff was so nice. The beach and boardwalk are only steps away. Everything was pretty much within walking distance. We loved the ocean and beach. The motel has a pool which is cleaned and serviced daily. Only wish they had a coffe maker in the room. That would be my only complaint. Otherwise it was the best stay ever.

I am hoping this review will be as helpful as others were to me. The Empress Motel is very convenient to the Boardwalk and the beach. It may be an older place but it is very clean and quiet. The room rates were very reasonable. The pool was always clean and very refreshing. I would recommend the Empress Motel to everyone.

Very clean,convenient to Boardwalk and beach, great price . Save your money. This place is friendly and a great location. Enjoyed our visit (my wife and I). Staying during the week Sunday - Thursday is a great way to do OC and see it all and avoid the weekend crowds. Have done it this way for several years. You could pay $100 more easily and not have as nice of an experience. Rooms easily accommodate up to a family of four.

Room Tip: Have stayed at Spinnaker and spent $100 more per night and $125 more on weekend. Give this place a...

We have been staying at this motel for the last two years and every time we have stay here always very clean, and nice staff. Looking forward to staying here again this weekend for soccer and the air show.

Room Tip: Any room on any floor is good. "Quiet location"
