“Dirty, poorly managed, smelled terrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2011

Only good thing about this place was it was a block from the Beach. It was rundown, smelled awful, the bathroom was full of mildew and ants. We were told it was remodeled. They put in a new sink, over chipped and broken tile, dented walls. It was a real pit. Cannot believe people would actually take people over like this. They should be ashamed. Pool was NOTtaken care of at all. Place was left in the 60's.

This review is for the 1100 block ocean manor hotel. (They have a few buildings).. This one seemed to be the most up to date from the outside.. however once you get inside you think different!..On the plus side, they do have an elevator, as well as stair access.. a fridge and microwave and direct tv in every room (although most channels were not available).. our room also had a private access deck and a table with 2 chairs on the deck.. inside the room, their was a little tiny bistro type table.. Now for the negatives, the room was dark and dingy... it looked like they had painted on top of paint on top of paint, you get the idea? the blinds were broken in some spots, the windows of our rooms couldnt be open because the screens had holes in them, so if we would have opened them, flies could have gotten in.. and bathroom was tiny and had ants in it on numerous occasions.. also the first night I found an ant on the night stand right next to my head! TV was small and was hard to see from the bed.. as far as the bed goes, it was comfy.. the blankets looked a little scary, but i checked them thoroughly for any types of bugs, and didn't find any.. actually slept good once i got to sleep.. they provide towels, but bring your own because they were so rough it hurt my face! I was glad we had packed our own.. Our room also had a closet and dresser, so plenty of space (we didn't use them) They were supposed to have an ice machine, but it was broken when we went.. also we had a wall unit air conditioner in the room that we stayed in.. it was noisy and looked like it had dirt in it, or maybe it was mold? SCARY! Overall, we had a feeling of what we were getting ourselves in to because we went in the beginning of the season (First week of June 2011) and it was very cheap 89/night plus taxes.. very close to boardwalk, which is what we wanted.. they offer one free parking spot per room... We didn't go in the pool, but it looked very very tiny! We probably wouldn't stay here again, unless it was our last resort.

While this is an older motel, you feel like you are staying in the home of a southern plantation owner. The wide expansive porches with rocking chairs have a view of the beach. It is less than a block to the boardwalk and also has many stores to the right or the left.
We especially loved Michelle, the part owner/ desk clerk. She was so gracious and friendly as we talked with her. She tried to help us with anything we needed. The rooms were very clean and ours was spacious. We had a fridge and a kitchen sink in our room. The only reason I would not reccommend this to a friend is because I want to be able to stay there next year and don't want it filled up when I call!!

If you want a fancy place ocean manor is not for you. If you want a good value with friendly service and a clean room with a nice style Ocean Manor is for you! We have not stayed here for a few years and found the room very nicely renovated. New beds, new carpet, new a/c and heat units, and a private balcony. The main hotel is currently being renovated and the other buildings have been completed. Stay in the old flanders girls dorm--it has an elevator and private porches for 98% of the rooms in the building. We loved this place before and we have fallen in love again. This is our place for weekend getaways!

Our family just returned from a 2 night stay at the 1100 Ocean building and I had no complaints. Check in was easy and the ladies were pleasant. Our room was average and the bathroom fixtured appeared to be recently updated. It was an easy walk to the beach and right across from the Playland pier. The pool behind the main building was small but well maintained.
Overall, it is not a bad place if you want a clean place to sleep and shower. We tend not to spend too much time in a room since we are there for the beach and amusements. If I wanted to sit inside and cook my own meals I would have stayed home. I have stayed at many other places in OC including the Biscayne and for the money, this place isn't that bad.

I have stayed in many hotels and houses in Ocean City since the 1970's. This was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. We decided to take a very last minute trip to the beach and this place had the only vacancy we could find to fit our schedule. We knew it wouldn't be fancy, but hoped it would at least be clean.. The price was comparable to many of the other small hotels in the area. We had a room on the bottom floor, really the basement. The smell of mold and mildew was so strong and just unbearable. Even with the two windows open it was sickening. The room was dirty and dusty and water leaked nonstop from the bathroom faucet. Eventually we had to turn the hot water valve off at the sink because the faucet would not turn off at all. When you showered, the shower head leaked and sprayed water onto the ceiling, and the water went from hot to cold to scalding hot the whole time. In the room, you could see on the ceiling water stains and moldy spots that had been painted over. There were hardly any lights in the room, and it was dusty and dirty. There was only one outlet, in the bathroom. The mini fridge had so much ice in it , you could hardly fit anything in it. The only time I could even locate a staff person was when I checked in, after that there was never anyone to be found in the main office. We spent as little time as possible in the room during our stay. But just sleeping in there was gross and probably unhealthy. This place is a dump!

Everywhere in area was booked so got stuck staying here for two nights. We stayed in a one bedroom with pull out sofa. The room was outdated and looked like noone had put any money into the place in years. The shower was awful with little to no water pressure and the shower head was stuck in one position so the water shot directly to the corner leaving little water actually falling to use to shower. There was a roach and ant killer behinde toilet-total turnoff! The bed was very tiny for two adults. The room had a mis match of random pieces of furniture that looked banged up and not usable. The tv had about three working channels if that. Lots of flaking paint and you could tell it had been painted over and over from the caked outlets. Good thing we really only had to sleep there since we were at beach or atlantic city during day. Was close to the beach and boardwalk but not worth my money. I would rather stay a few blocks away than at a dump like this.
