Impala Island Inn
Ranked #12 of 32 Hotels in Ocean City
Reviewed 1 August 2013

We stayed for one night July 27th. I called 12 motels in OC and this was one of only 2 motels that would give me a one night stay reservation. THANKS! Very clean and comfortable beds . Close to boardwalk, food and rides. Perfect location. People in the office were very friendly. I would recommend this place to others. Good pools and you get beach tags for the length of your stay. Got there at 11am and was allowed to park in their lot so we could spend time on beach before check-in at 2:30

We've been to OC many, many times in the past but this is the first time we stayed at the Impala and we're glad we did. It's just across the street from the boardwalk, beach, and the Pirate Cove amusement center which is about at the middle of the whole length of the boardwalk. The building where we stayed at has 2 floors and our room is right in front of the pool. I believed the Impala also has another building on the opposite side of the street as well. Being close to the amusement center and right in front of the pool, we were surprise how quiet it was, even at night. The pool is closed at 9pm I believed. The impala also has plenty of parking (open and covered) spaces although it's a little tight. Unless you want to use the parking meters on the street or paid parking lots, most motel parking spaces in OC is small. It is fair to say the Impala is no different. We have a Camry and it fits just fine. Just don't drive a Humvee or something that size or larger. If you have lots of things to unload, just do so before parking into the space. As far as the room is concerned, it's like the one in the photos, nice and clean. Our room has a sofa, A/C and heater unit, LCD TV, phone, radio alarm clock, hair dryer, a small combo fridge/freezer, and plenty of dresser drawers and storage area for our suitcases. The only thing we wanted which our room didn't have is a microwave. We really want a microwave! The rooms also have connecting doors that can be a plus if you have a large family or group and want everyone to be together. There's also vending machines and ice machine on the premises. The other nice thing about the Impala is the pool. There's a big pool (4-8' deep) and a separate baby pool for toddlers. There is also a lifeguard on duty and a pool lift for people with disability to get into the pool. There are also 2 shower stalls for use after coming back from the ocean. They were nice but I couldn't find any knob to adjust the water temp which was hot. I didn't bother to ask because our room was only a few doors down. Our room also comes with 2 beach tags. Hope this review is useful for you. Enjoy

Close to the beach, boardwalk, Beach House Grill, amusement rides, and only 1 block off the main drag (9th street). It has 2 really nice pools that is really convenient and even a shower to wash off the sand from your feet after you get back from the beach. Parking can be a little tough some times but there is ample space for all in the overflow lot on Ocean Avenue. THe rooms are always clean and the front desk staff ids helpful. Take advantage of the coupn books in the fromt lobby to save money on most things.

Room Tip: First floor rooms made it easy to unload and load but there is an elevator in the rear to access the...

We enjoyed our 2 night stay in July. I chose a poolside room with a king bed and pullout sofa. The room was spacious and very clean. The pool was nice and the location is perfect!! I'd definitely stay here again!!

We stayed at the Impala Island Inn from July 14th-19th for the first time. The hotel is kept very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Both pools had ample seating areas and were kept very clean. Our room was plenty big for us and the beds were comfortable. We stayed in the North side on the second floor, which has a nice size deck. Location is great as it's only a block away from the boardwalk/beach and is centrally located so you're "mid boardwalk". Once you're parked you have everything you want/need within walking distance so there's no reason to get into your vehicle until it's time to check out. We will definitely be returning and have already recommended it to others. Thank you to the staff for a great stay.

This hotel is in a great spot only a few side streets up to the boadwalk. When checking in our bathroom sink drain was really really slow and backing up called them to come up and left for boardwalk when we got back all done and worked so much better. Friendly staff, nice pool area nice clean and good size rooms maid also very nice and friendly.

We spent five days at the Impala at the end of June. We rented three rooms for our family and had absolutely no complaints. The rooms were clean and the staff was cooperative. Our grandchildren really enjoyed the pools. The proximity to the boardwalk made it easy for us to go to the beach and boardwalk several times a day. This was our second year and we most certainly will go again next year. For those people worried about storm damage, there was none evident. Ocean City did a great job preparing for the summer trade. Thanks also to the Impala for returning to me a picture I inadvertently left in our room.
