Reviewed 3 July 2013 via mobile

The only positive side of ocean lodge is the location and a nice welcome. The room is so small, there are no amenities whatsoever not even cheap shampoo or conditioner, the mattresses are so uncomfortable that we woke up sore and could not sleep properly. The pillow case was stained. The room is worth $39 and we paid $150.

My family and I visited Ocean City Maryland for the first time this past June. We booked a room in the Ocean Lodge because of the location and slightly lower rates than hotels in the area. Although we were nervous about staying in a smaller hotel with our two year old, as soon as we stepped into the building we felt immediately at home, as though we had been coming here for years. The hotel is owned by a very nice local family who were very helpful in telling us the best places to bring our daughter (Try out the Duccaneer at M.R. Ducks!). The rooms felt as though they were all recently redone and were very clean. My wife and I agreed that we had found a diamond in the rough, and are even planning another vacation to OCMD because of the lack of stress we experienced in staying with Ocean Lodge and will definitely stay with them again.

My boyfriend and I rolled into Ocean City on a Friday night looking for a place to stay. Ocean Lodge Hotel had an open room in the area we wanted to stay for a decent price. The hotel itself is just OK. Not super nice, or new or particularly clean, but we were not planning on spending much time in the hotel anyway so it didn't bother us. The parking lot is tiny and cramped, but luckily we drive a small car and were able to find a spot. The TV service is spotty at best, but, again, we didn't go to Ocean City to watch TV.

When we went to check out, we informed the person at the front desk that a little bit of water had spilled out of our cooler when we were leaving and that there was a small spot of water on the floor. They assured us that was ok and we proceeded to check out. However, after we got home, we saw a $50 charge on our credit card from the hotel. Apparently it is their policy to charge customers a fee if there is a little sand or water on the floor, even though they are a beach hotel. When we called the hotel to ask about the charge, they were extremely rude and said that the WATER on the floor had left a stain. Needless to say we are in the process of fighting these charges on our credit card.

I would rather sleep on the beach than have to stay at this hotel again. There are so many other choices in Ocean City, don't go here. That is, of course, unless you want these criminals to have access to your credit card information.

My wife, Nancy, and I stayed at the Ocean Lodge Hotel in Ocean City, MD and were absolutely amazed at the high level of customer service we enjoyed. Owners Renato and Eva were wonderful hosts and made sure we were 100% satisfied with our stay. Our room was clean, comfortable, and perfect for our weekend getaway (and the rates were very reasonable). My wife and I look forward to many return visits and we highly recommend Ocean Lodge Hotel to everyone!

I was there with my wife last week to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Very nice and clean room. Service was excellent. Very great location and close to boardwalk. We definitely are coming back in July for a family vacation. We highly recommend it.
