Ocean Mecca Motel
Ranked #82 of 104 Hotels in Ocean City
Reviewed 8 August 2011

I felt the need to write a review after reading some of these horrible comments about the ocean Mecca...first of all it's is certainly not dirty, and the staff are all wonderful! We have 2 young children of 2 and 5 and although we don't need 5 star luxury we need CLEANLINESS!! We have the ocean Mecca booked this august for 10 days and it will be our 3rd time there. I thoroughly researched hotels and motels before our first trip 3 years ago and we haven't stayed Anywhere else! You will understand what I mean after comparing it to some of the other places on the boardwalk!
The location is fantastic, at the quiet end of the boardwalk, the pool is kept spotless and there's more than enough places nearby to get a coffee/snack/groceries etc.
We can't wait for our trip this year! Feel free to get in touch with any questions!

Great beach, great vacation but this was a horrible place to stay. The rooms and extras were fine but the staff was horrible. They watched every little thing you did and yelled at our kids. Oh, FYI this is not a kid friendly place. We had family come for a day trip and they were not even allowed on the property. Yes they were actually told to leave even when we explained the situation to the owners. The room had roaches and stank. My advice is to stay at a bigger hotel so the staff isnt watching your every move.

Although we try to make everyone happy here, we have rules and policies that must be followed to keep order. This motel has had repeat customers for over 40 years that will not stay anywhere else. There has NEVER been a report of a roach as was stated and the rooms are always complimented on the cleanliness. Sorry it didn't work out for you.

This place is no frills but very clean, well-maintained, great rates for oceanfront hotel. The pool was clean and Literally right on the boardwalk so you could sit on the pool deck and look at the ocean and beach. Young dark haired gal at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful and so was the Irish student working for the summer. These kids did a great job and we appreciated their advise. I would stay here again! ( this is a two story small hotel but the location was great)

We have been to ocean city many, many times.Experienced many different types of accomodations, most from internet ads were deceiving. Even the larger hotels had dirty rooms and lots of room for improvement needed. What we hate the most is dealing with people who make you seem like a bother rather than a customer. And dealing with all foriegners that don't understand what you are asking for is very frustrating. Please hire Americans people! But when we stayed at Ocean Mecca we were treated almost like royalty. We immediately felt comfortable and welcome. The place is small but very clean. Probably the cleanest we have seen in OC. Although our trip was about a year ago, I just felt we had to write because of a couple reviews I have read here. We truly believe there is more to the stories than is being said. Don't pay attention to the sour grapes written. It was probably someone that was reprimanded for violating rules or misunderstood something. And to the person with flys, we have experienced flys at the beach at certain times of the year. And many times I wished I had a flyswatter! We do know that they have different types of rooms and we upgraded for a few dollars more and was very satisfied.We can only say that we were very pleased with the hotel and will definitely return.

A group of us girls go every year to OC. We've had some bad experiences with motels! Then we went to Ocean Mecca and have been going there every since! We love it! The lady at the front desk is great, the rooms are clean and roomy and the pool is kept up. We are right on the boardwalk and it is fantastic! This is our place to go from now on!

Once again my Husband and I and our daughter and grandchildren stayed at the Ocean Mecca Motel and we were not disappointed. It was great to see Neal again and we were warmly welcomed. This is a small family owned motel right on the boardwalk with a great view of the Ocean the pool has a great view of the boardwalk and the beach our room (room 100) was an efficieny with a fridge and stove and 2 double beds and a pull out sofa big enough for the 5 of us the room was cleaned daily and the grounds are very clean with the employees cleaning up around the motel. When our Grandaughter became ill and needed to see a doctor we asked at the front desk where we should go and were appropriatly directed to a medi merge on 10th street we were in and out within 45 minutes what great service! If you are looking for a quite place to stay this is the place to consider you will not be disappointed. We look forward to going back again next year this place is better than the large chain hotels in Ocean City.

I was very disappointed with my stay at the Mecca Hotel. From the moment my friends and I arrived at the hotel, we were being watched by the staff at the front desk. About five times throughout the entire trip, management came knocking on our door to demand that the correct number of people were in the room, and also to demand that the housekeeping cleaned the room, even when the "Privacy Please" sign was up, and the correct number was there. Also, on day three, they asked us all for our ID’s, something they should have done on the first day. They did not give us a reason. They then went in our room (after housekeeping was completed much earlier that morning) without asking us.

I found this behavior unprofessional considering we were faulty accused of wrongs from day one. Although one of our friends was over twenty three and most of us were nineteen- adult age- we were treated like we were twelve year olds. Also, keep in mind that no guests are allowed on the premises, even if they are visiting for a couple of minutes. This added an unnecessary stress to our vacation. Although the rooms were generally clean and the maids were nice, that did not compensate for the rude and unprofessional staff.

DO NOT stay at this hotel if you are with a group of friends and trying to have an enjoyable vacation. In all my vacations I have never been treated this way at a hotel; and the four hundred plus dollars spent there went to waste.
