Very helpful staff and very clean rooms. Beds were comfortable and since we were there after Labor Day for 2 nights the pool was not crowded and it was heated which was a special plus. We forgot an item when we left and the staff found it immediately and we were able to get it back the following week. If...

Me and my boyfriend stayed 2 nights, just for a Minnie get away from Baltimore. And I loved it. It was clean, the staff was nice, and the price was reasonable. The only thing I didn't like was, we had to walk a long way on the board walk to get to the main attractions on the beach. I also...

The hotel was a great place to stay at for a short vacation. Restaurants are close by, easy access to the beach which was right behind the hotel. Boardwalk is a close walk. Nothing really to do there though. There's an amusement park across the street.

My friend and I stayed here in August of 2012 and were happy with our stay. Even though the motel dates from the `60's, the rooms were clean, comfortable, and had decent amenities. My friend and I were actually impressed that the the room had a new flat scree LCD TV. The staff at the Thunderbird Motel were VERY nice...

Great location, prices are decent comparing others. My only gripe is you get soap but no shampoo. Just remember to bring your own. You can really expect a lot from a place like this. Bathrooms are a little cramped. Overall for the value and location I would come back.

We stayed here with friends and the kids and it was a clean facility. The parking was a little bit of a challenge but the location is great and the prices are reasonable. It's close to the beach and isn't far from other attractions. It's a good room for the short amount of time we stayed in it while we...

This is a very suspicious review! There has NOT been any issue whatsoever, with the accusation of bugs. No incidents before the weekend that you supposedly stayed, nor after the weekend you supposedly stayed. If there was such issues, those issues have to be taken care of professionally. This means that there would have been many more complaints. As can...

Let me preface this by saying I do not like OCMD and was only there because I had to be. I prefer a smaller beach town with less rowdy teens and twenty somethings with absolutely no manners or regard for anyone around them. I had to be in OCMD for one night in high season. There is no way I...

We have stayed here in the past with our kids. This year it was just the two of us. We arrived and they had no parking. Luckily we found a spot right in front, and our room was on the second floor. What we like about this place is the convenience. It is a 1/2 block from the beach, not...

Thank you for your comments and review. I am very sorry to hear that you did not sleep well. We do have someone at the desk 24 hours per day. Our 12am to 8am clerk does very well at trying to keep the peace. It helps if things are brought to our attention. We certainly want everyone to be comfortable...

We were in town for a long weekend, and this place worked well. Room was clean, the motel was a block from the beach, and about 4 blocks from the boardwalk. Bar across the street served breakfast and drinks. We will be going back next year.

“If you have issues with stairs, call the hotel directly and ask for a room on the first floor. If you don't want to drive a lot, or are planning on spending a lot of time on the boardwalk, this may not be the right choice for you.”
