The room looked as though it was re-done recently new carpeting etc. Had to checkout because of evacuation due to "Irene"....

If you want a fairlycheap place to stay,i suggest you try the Sahara motel.We've stayed there twice so far.Both times the rooms were clean,and we had no problems.The pools were adequate,the only drawback was the distance to the heart of the boardwalk.We had a great time,i'm already planning our next vacation in 2012.

The beds were really soft and we definetly will ask for queens next time. They could use a little updating but we didn't spend a whole lot...

We stayed at the Sahara's Tower Building, which has a pool and Cafe on site. The room was very clean, the maid came every day and even though we were one block back from the beach, we had an awesome view from our balcony (we were 4th floor, all the way at the end). Our girls, ages 11 and 8,...

We just came back from a long weekend. This was the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in in Ocean City. I was totally impressed. The pools were great and the Cafe had great breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice motel. Didn't want for anything (except maybe coffeepot in room). Rooms looked to be recently done over in some areas and the grounds are very nice and well kept. Cafe is a real plus. Will probably stay again and again.

Great location and price! My family and I stayed for the Ocean City Air Show this year. This is a prime spot to watch the air show from your balcony. You do have a private balcony which is nice. The room was spotless and the housekeeping staff was very friendly and attentive. We stayed for 3 nights and found it...
