We stayed at Princess Royale in November for Thanksgiving and received a coupon at that time for a free Thursday night when booking Friday night, so we took advantage of that in April. The price we paid for an oceanfront suite (living room, kitchenette, bedroom) was only slightly higher than what we would have paid for two nights bayside in a regular room, so it made sense to treat ourselves to the oceanfront suite.

Check in went smoothly, the gal at the desk is just perfect for her job. Our room was all that we expected it to be except for a little evidence of wear and tear and age on some of the furnishings. Our room had an ocean front view with a side balcony, which actually turned out to be a blessing. Sitting on the side of the building protected us from the strong breeze coming from the southeast.

We slept very well in our bed -- terrific mattress and pretty good pillows. (I have to say that on our last visit, we had one pillow that was outstanding.) Linens were clean as were the bath towels. The shower had a good flow to it. (Be warned that there is an awkwardly-located soap dish right at elbow height. After you hit it once, you learn your lesson!) Coffee was supplied but we never used it. Refrigerator worked well. All the expected kitchen supplies (plates, cups, cutlery, etc) were in order. Both televisions worked perfectly.

We found that all the staff we chatted with were very professional. This goes beyond just those behind the desks. We talked to some young men in the elevator who were very informative about the local foxes. (I saw a red fox from our balcony in the morning.) Another fellow was quick to respond when we let him know that we didn't think the elevator in the parking garage was working. There were also some young men doing some general sprucing up who gave friendly greetings. And the gal the runs the snack / sundries shop off the lobby just has a wonderful enthusiasm about her. (If you don't want to make the coffee in the room, coffee is available after 7:00 a.m here and on some mornings, Krispy Kreme doughnuts are available.)

Princess Royale is one of our favorite hotels and I'm always glad when we are able to get a great promotional rate here and able to book a few nights within our budget.

Dear CJAJSMOM,

Thank you for being our guest and for your comments, I'm very glad you enjoyed Thanksgiving with us and were able to take advantage of our Welcome Back weekend special deals in one of our OceanFront suites.

I've shared your comments with our staff who are looking forward to a fantastic Warm and Sunny spring and an even better summer. Thanks again for staying with us and I hope you are able to visit again this summer - we have some great new packages and deals.

Sincerely,
Michael Foelber

We were supposed to be in South Beach for the long weekend but couldn't get confirmed seats for our flights. Not wanting to cancel our weekend we looked for someplace driveable yet on the ocean. We were able to check this place out online and none of us had been to Ocean City, Md. before. Since it is pre-season we were able to find what we thought were reasonable rates. Our room offered 2 comfortable queen beds and a sleeper sofa. The décor is outdated but some updates have been done. Everything seems freshly painted and the pool area in good condition. There are not enough lounge chairs in the pool area but plenty of tables & chairs outside of the pool area for snacking. There is a flat screen in the bedroom but an old tube TV in the LR. There is a refrigerator, microwave and 2 burner cooktop for those not wanting to eat all meals out.

The resort has become our favorite vacation site in Ocean City.The staff is very accommodating and the pool and gym are first rate. We were also fortunate to be upgraded to a Condo at no additional cost. We hope to visit the Royale many more times in the future.

We frequently stay at this hotel in Ocean City. Always clean and the staff is always accommodating. Beds are comfortable. Nice having a suite for every stay. Room service is reasonable and fast. Have stayed at many hotels in OC MD, but always come back to the Princess Royale, our favorite.

Room Tip: Have not been assigned a bad room yet. If walking is a problem, ask for a room close to elevators.

Cindy, I'm so glad you enjoyed your well deserved weekend getaway at our resort. In addition to our clean and comfortable accomodations, I'm especially proud of the exemplary service delivered by our staff. Thank you for being our guest and we look forward to hosting you again soon. PS We just installed the largest hand blown glass chandelier on the eastern shore - it's located just off the lobby.

Sincerely,
