“clean and acceptable”
Reviewed 30 August 2012

we needed a last minute place to stay for a night at the beach, the Atlantic Coast was an acceptable beach motel. Nothing fancy, short walk across the highway to the beach. AC worked good shower pressure, mini fridge was cold enough to freeze my water (i made it too cold) bed was springy for my taste, but not horrible. Most importantly it was clean!

We have stayed at more expensive hotels in Ocean city located on the boardwalk w/ocean views. They were not as clean as clean as the Atlantic Coast Inn. The front desk people are friendly and very helpful if you have questions. This was our second summer staying here,we like being on Fenwick away from the all night partying and car noise of Ocean City. Check out Fenwick Island state park seashore, for small fee you can park and they have a bath house and Consession stand.The price is much more reasonable than other less clean motels in the area.

Room Tip: We prefer the back building facing the bay on the second floor.

This hotel is a great hotel for the price. I read the reviews on Tripadvisor and most said that it was a clean hotel and a good deal for the money. I agree. The hotel was clean, the pool was basic but clean and nice. We rented two rooms and we were all happy with the hotel. Lots of nice families staying there. It was close to Fisher's Popcorn, several nice miniature golf courses, Nick's Rib's and several candy and ice cream stores. The beaches across the highway were nice. We would definitely stay there again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here thinking it would be a decent place to stay for the price. It is pretty obvious that the owners of this place do not put any money back into it. We checked in before dinner time and noticed that the room was very warm so I turned on the AC unit to full blast expecting to come back to a nice cool room. After a night out on the town and looking forward to a good night's sleep we came back to a hot humid room. The AC was obviously very old and out dated as was the rest of the room. I can deal with a tacky interior for a decent price but a hot humid room with no AC in August is not cool. The manager did nothing but argue with me the next during checkout, as if he had no responsibilty for his AC units! I would totally spend an extra $20 to stay at a place that was a lot cooler and had a friendly understanding manager.

reid c, Owner at Atlantic Coast Inn, responded to this review, 19 August 2012
We are very sorry that this guest was unhappy with his stay. Although we try and keep our property is the best possible condition, things do go wrong. Unfortunately, the guest did not inform us that his a/c unit was not working until the morning of his check-out at 11:00 am. We could have easily rectified the a/c problem had he only picked up the phone and informed our 24 hour desk staff. We have spare units at the ready for just this type of situation. We also had several other empty rooms we could have upgraded him to if he had only spoken up. We also credited his girlfriend's credit card for $50.00 in order to try and make it up to her.

The rooms are very barebones. They rooms are clean which is great, but the rooms are very dated; many coats of paint; old bedspreads, thin, well-worn towels. The rooms with 2 beds have double beds, not queen beds, which surprised me. If you're using your room mostly for sleeping and can do without frills, it's fine. I like a bit of pampering on vacation personally. The pool is lovely though and the walk to the beach is short. Surrounded by many amenities as well.

Great location and very clean! Price was very right. Our room size was good but the beds were a little small. The pool was nice but longer hours would have been better. Staff was very nice and very helpful. We would stay there again for a weekend "getaway".

Located in Fenwick Island, DE, just steps over the boarder from Ocean City, MD. The motel itself was nothing special, but it was clean and considerably cheaper than anything else in the area. We had a room with two twin beds for a family of four. The room was dated but relatively clean for a beach motel. They had an outdoor pool, which is great for cooling off after returning from the beach. The location was great, just a few minute walk to the beach. We booked this room at the last minute for one night (July 5th) and got a great rate. We were very pleased with the value.
