The Rivera Motel is located in Ocean City MD near the Boardwalk. Upon checking into my room I noticed there was a strong smoke smell. The room was very dirty and out of date; there was a baggie with the corner ripped out of it lying in a drawer. The door did not have a second lock on it and... More

Stayed over Labor day weekend, place was 100% full, lots of kids. Price avg $89/night + tax for standard 2-bed room is a bargain in O.C. It is a very old Motel, looks like it's not been updated since the 70's, but is kept relatively clean. Has free Wi-Fi. Rooms are spartan: with old, dark wall paneling like your Dad's... More

We stayed here with friends and had a great time. Our rooms were right next to each other. Granted, I've never stayed in OC MD at a 4 or 5 star place (unless it was an expensive privately owned condo), most are just mediocre establishments. That being said, the place was clean, service was friendly and room was adequate.

Bathroom was clean, but the toilet seat was years old and badly stained, carpet needs to be replaced, wall air... More

I was at first I ignored the bad reviews and aimed at the good ones. That was a horrible choice. I was very unsatisfied. Let's start with the room. Most of the drawers fell out when you pull them, the beds had alot of weird stains, and the bathroom had dirty black specks in it. The pool was okay, the... More

I stayed here for a week with a few friends. Not the classiest hotel, but it was a cool place to sleep. I will say the rooms are bigger than most hotels. We had an efficiency with 2 full beds and a pull-out couch. The air conditioner keeps the room cold. I wouldn't recommend it to families, but if you... More
