We stayed for five nights.
As others have stated if your looking for the Hilton this is not it.
We stayed in a poolside room in the building where the office is.
Best part of this motel is the location. Your on the boardwalk.
It's far enough away from the noisey part of the boardwalk but a short tram ride right to all the action.
We had no complaints about the cleanliness of our room.
We had the beds made,fresh towels, and vacuumed each day.
Bathroom was small but clean.
Pool was clean and it was very quiet at night.
Fridge and microwave in every room was great.
We really didn't spend much time in our room.
The beach is right there to enjoy.
The cafe attached across the street has great breakfast and an early bird special.
If your looking for an affordable motel right on the beach this is a great pick.

This is our second stay at the Sahara and it was great. It's definitely not one of the higher end hotels but definitely one of the best "budget" motels we've stayed in Ocean City. We've actually stayed at quite a few in the very close vicinity which were very close in price. The Price + Location = very enjoyable stay. The price is one of the lowest and you can pretty much walk to everything, the beach, boardwalk, lots of restaurants, etc... We got clean towels and garbage removal daily but didn't ask for anything else. We stayed in the tower building (we stayed in the West bldg last time) and even got a small glimpse of the ocean from the balcony in between buildings. We were in the pool alot which was for the most part clean. No problem finding parking. I also loved that you could open the windows in the bathroom and near the sink, which alot of motels you can't do. The beds were pretty comfortable, not hard like some hotels we've been to. I gave it a four because of cleanliness, the bathroom could have been a little cleaner when we got there and the pool could have been cleaner. Also the people upstairs sounded like a heard of elephants walking back and forth and slamming doors. Between the ending of senior week and the dew tour there were lots of rowdy teens. But we didn't stay in the room much and the kids didn't care about the pool so all had a great time. We come to OC at least once, if not twice every year and are always on a budget. We will definitely stay here again.

We were able to book last minute in high season for only $99/night. We had a sparkling poolside room only a few steps to the beach, complete with microwave , fridge and two double beds. The entire staff was friendly, the pool area was immaculate and we had a great time. Thanks to everyone, especially Bonnie who booked us in.

Room was ok regarding cleanliness. Awful during our stay which I believe was because of the A/C filter needing to be changed or cleaned. Informed the front desk and they had the cleaning woman come to the room and she proceeded to argue about doing a good job cleaning the room. Told her the room was fine but the filter needed to be changed. By that time we were leaving anyway. Room was about as close as you could get to the beach without actually sleeping on the beach. I would definitely stay again because once I parked I could walk back an d forth to the beach or the my favorite restaurant-Phillip's Seafood Restaurant.

Room Tip: If you have the opportunity, check out the room before you pay just to make sure everything is as it should be.

New bathrooms and carpet since last time. Beachfront. Pool very clean. The Cafe has amazing breakfast!! Walking distance to Phillips. Only ding is .25 for ice. Boardwalk action not real close, but nice to get to a little quieter area after a busy night on the boardwalk.1
