“Just OK!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2008

While trying not to sound too snooty, this establishment did not meet my expectations. It was clean, but worn. It was just at walking distance to beach (2 1/2 blocks). Not BAD but also NOT easy with beach stuff and two kids in tow. Pool was far smaller than photo, but not at all important to me, may be to some. The pool was however, clean and heated. The A/C, as some have reviewed, was loud but not overbearing and it kept the room at arctic like conditions. The staff was OK! No real issues there. They where just......there. Neither helpful nor harmful.
I can appreciate the day to day use of these bigger places will tend to wear them out over time and I did say it was clean. The few cons I had were:
1) Maids never changed the sheets in our 6 day stay.
2) Toilette paper must be in high demand because we only had one roll per day.
3) Could not get internet to work on laptop (sons PSP had no problem)
4) Parking is not guaranteed, first come first serve. (small Too)
5) Walking distance is not across the street...you will walk.

So, while I am accustomed to more 5star type hotels, the Biscayne Suites filled our needs and with some more attention from staff it could be an average place to stay. Nothing too serious to complain about...just trying to add honesty to review.
I would most likley return to Ocean City, but at a closer more upscale place near the beach. If that in fact does excist, everything there seems run down and very casual.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2008

We recently stayed at the Biscaynes Suites with our family of 6 (4 young children 6 and under) and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The hotel was within a short walk (about 5 minutes) from the boardwalk and the beach. The location was great and fortunately for the kids, it was located right next to the Hobby Horse Ice Cream Shop! The hotel property was very neat and clean and the hotel staff was excellent and accomodating to our needs. The rooms are well insulated and we never even heard anyone during our stay. We stayed in one of the biggest suites (Room 315) and there was plenty of room for all of us. The only drawback of the whole stay was that the air conditioner was extremely loud and sounded like it was going to blast off into space! That's because it's located in the room with only a closet door to muffle the sounds.

  • Liked — Value and closeness to the beach

Wow! I stayed at Biscayne about 4 years ago and it was disappointing. But, we figured we'd try again since we heard they had turned to condos and went under new ownership. EVERYTHING WAS GREAT!!!
I especially love the new railings on the balconies... before it was a low "wall." The pool looks awesome! The rooms are spacious and very clean. They are only 2 short blocks in from the beach which is now being made wider! Great location, between the 2 amusement parks and close to the shops on Asbury Ave, too!

I was under the impression that this was a high end property. I wanted to pamper the family on a much needed vacation. We just didnt get it this time. I knew from the first minute, it wasnt going to be pleasurable. The staff was very rude. Not sure of her name, but she said she was the manager(blonde hair). We werent allowed to check in at the normal checkin time. We were told the room wasnt ready. When we finally checked in, the room was far from clean. Its like they just freshened up a dirty room with new sheets and towels. Cant they atleast vacuum??? The pool was cold. The mattress was lumpy. The dishes had food particles on them not from us. At the prices they have, I honestly felt robbed. It is just unacceptable to offer what they offer at the high rates.

We have stayed at the Biscayne Suites for a pretty long time. We don't go every year, but when we do we have a great time. We love the location since it is only a few blocks from beach. It is very clean and housekeeping comes every day. You park on their property under a cover, so you car stays out of the hot sun. The pool on roof is great, and yes the scenery is great. Even though the pool is closed at night, you can still go up there, since they have table and chairs. Love the ice cream shop next door as well. Nothing bad to say, you will enjoy your stay.

  • Liked — Spotless rooms
  • Disliked — Can't think of any

While the room was large and spacious, a few things were unacceptable. For one, they used a flat sheet (size for a standard double bed) instead of a king-size fitted sheet. It was just placed over the mattress protector, which is ridiculous. By the morning, the sheet was just a 'lump' between us. Don't understand why they can't put a king-size fitted sheet on a king-size mattress. Second, the bathroom was filthy. The towels were dirty and gray, and the bathtub needed a good cleaning. I wiped it down BEFORE I got a shower.

Stayed October 2007
