We recently stayed in Ocean City Md, at Park Place Hotel, primarily due to the reviews here on Trip Advisor. We took other traveler's advice and asked for Ocean View room on a higher up floor. We stayed on the 5th floor. What a wonderful view. We were in OC, off season, which made it much quieter but a lot of attractions were closed. We stayed from Wed Oct 19 to Sat Oct 22. Wed, Thu nights were very quiet and peaceful. Friday night we could hear the movement, voices, tv etc from the room next door, but luckily the people quieted down as it got later so there were no issues for us.
Our biggest complaint was the room smelled musty when we walked in. We opened the slider to the balcony and the musty smell quickly left. It's possible, the smell was from the A/C since it was turned on when we arrived. We turned it off and left it off for the duration of our stay because it was in the 60's everyday and we didn't notice the musty smell again.
Another issue is we were getting dived bombed by seagulls when we went out on the balcony. This happened twice and both times were due to the guest, on the balcony below us, feeding them. When he was not out there, the birds left us alone.
The bed was comfortable. The towels plentiful. The kitchenette was great because we could store beverages in there, we made popcorn one night. The TV had plenty of channels. The Wi-Fi was great and we were happy that was available. The room was clean. The staff was very helpful when we asked about local restaurants and gave us their recommendations.
