We stayed at FSK Resort for the second time, September 2018. Our first visit was in December of 2017. We had chosen to go because of the indoor pool - since our kids birthdays are at Christmas time and doing parties are impossible, we opt for weekend family getaways instead. FSK exceeded our expectations. Even though it was the dead of winter and snowing, they treated us like it was prime season, welcome guests, and didn’t skimp on amentities like almost every other beach destination does in the off-season. That stood out to us right away, and made us see what a wonderful, family owned and family oriented place this is.

That made us want to come back and check it out during prime season when the outdoor pool, Sprayground, mini golf, etc is all up and running. Again, we were impressed! The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. You can mix with other families and enjoy movies together in their movie theater, or just stay privately with your own family and “do your thing” if you prefer. The shuttle to the beach was convenient and runs continuously both to and from, we never waited more than 5 minutes or so for a shuttle.

My kids favorite place was the sprayground. The food and drinks were delicious at every bar and food venue, and we enjoyed our breakfast at the 50’s diner. Highly recommend for families!

Thank you Marsha S for the review. We are happy we met and even exceeded your expectations for a second time. We hope this tradition will continue for many more years to come. The off-season is still a great time to visit us, the indoor pool is still open and the family movies in our lounge are always a hit and now even better with the reclining chairs. We look forward to your next visit.
Thank you,
Heather Brunning

We have been coning to Francis Scott Key in the late summer and fall for many years. We spend our time at Assateague Seashore Park and this resort is a short easy drive to the park as well to Ocean City. We choose a room in the Ohio Building. We like to get the room with the full kitchen. We arrived early and were delighted to be checked in and able to go to the room before normal check-in. We had a nice breakfast at the 50's Restaurant. Why do I like these rooms? Let me start with the pro's: The beds are very comfortable. They have Tempue-Pedic mattresses. The WiFi signal is very good. I was able to stream movies and programs from Netflix with no problems. Towels- they are everywhere. We stayed two days and didn't use all of the towels for one day. Super hot water. If you like a hot shower you will get it here. The room had a nice kitchen table with four chairs. The AC worked well. The staff is great. After we were there for a few hours we received a call from house keeping asking if everything was ok. If you have children this is the resort for you. There's plenty to do on site and it's all included in your room price. Now the cons.... That's right, I don't have any. This is our go to place in Ocean City for almost 10 years.

Room Tip: Pick the room with the fully equipped kitchen.

Francis Scott key is a great resort. Soo much for the kids to do. Pool, mini golf,spray ground, indoor pool, movie theater, play ground (all on premise). There is a shuttle that runs continuously to the beach area which is only about 5 minutes away. This was our first time & will definitely be returning

Had another great stay at Francis Scott Key Family Resort ! We moved back to Maryland after being away for 11 months and were looking forward to returning to our "Favorite" place in Ocean City. Our last stay was 3 years ago. We've been coming to FSK Fam Res since 2005 and always stay there.

If you stay anywhere else in OC Maryland you pay more and get less. True Story !
It's called a Resort for a reason.. indoor aquatic center for anytime ANY weather .. putt putt golf .. outdoor pool .. pirate splash .. Huge pirate ship deck for parties .. volleyball.. basketball court.. pavilion/ grill.. movie theater.. restaurant.. hotel shuttle to board walk
Need I say more ...?

Very pleased with our recent stay. The amenities are amazing for families. These are Disney quality pools. The outdoor pool was always a nice temperature and offered a splash pad with LED lights at night. There is an outdoor hot tub for ages 14+. The outdoor pool has a lot of seating, a pool bar and a food area with a decent menu. More options that expected. There is free mini golf here as well. There is another outdoor pool area for younger children that is a pirate ship with multiple slides, tunnels and four splash pad areas. It is fenced in with an ice cream/ snow cone cart there. Lots of seating as well. The indoor pool has a volleyball net, slide, drink area and a 18+ hot tub. It was actually quite large.

Our room was a bit dated but still nice. The staff keep the area quite clean. Our room was a bit noisy but it was not the fault of the hotel, it was the noisy people letting their kids jump around until after 1am (who does that?).

There is a mailbox at the main building for outgoing mail. That was very handy.

The diner on site exceeded our expectations and was actually quite nice for breakfast.

Easy to get in and out of for travel. They offer shuttle busses to the OC boardwalk so you don’t have to worry about parking.

Easy to get around with traffic. Nice and easy drive to Assateague too. Best of both worlds with experiencing OC and Assateague.

Staff were all extremely nice. I feel bad that they cleaned our room one day when we rolled in at 1am and were gone again by 630, it was a mess from being on Assateague all day. They even made an elephant and crab out of towels for the kids. It blew our toddlers mind. Thank you for that. He really loved it.

Super nice stay. We will be back for sure. Honestly this was the best stay for our family outside of a Disney hotel due to the amenities here.
