The view from the room was great; overlooking the boardwalk and ocean. The hotel restaurant was amazing, we enjoyed getting breakfast/lunch there. Relevant location. I went for my senior trip and we had a lot of fun. Our room was cleaned every day. If I had to pick somewhere to stay in OC this would be 1st choice.

It is always a pleasure to be here. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and they are always updating something new each year. The staff are so welcoming and efficient.

This was a beautiful hotel with direct boardwalk and beach access! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The food in the attached Italian restaurant was excellent and not too pricey.

Our daughter has made the honor roll two quarters in a row and we wanted to give her a special treat. She loves to stay in hotels so I decided to take her to OC Maryland for the weekend. Wanted a hotel that had ocean view rooms, indoor pool, free parking and breakfast. 3 out of 4 wasn't bad. We...

Stayed 2 nights here in an oceanfront room while attending the Delmarva Wool and Fiber Expo at the Ocean City Convention Center. Price was very reasonable and room was great. Enjoyed great view and walks on the beach and boardwalk. Staff was very nice and helpful.

I did not like our stay in the room. We were near the stairs and the pool so there were noises all the time. The room needs renovation but I do appreciate the location even though the room is not ocean front for us. There is no breakfast included with the room charges.

“Ask for a high floor, with a room facing south for better views. Rooms toward the back/parking lot end may elevator noise.”
