My stay at the Clarion Resort Fontainebleau Hotel was pleasant, but we were very disappointed with our view. We paid for an Ocean Front King Suite which was over $300 per night, and we sadly only received a view from the right side of our very tiny balcony. The balcony was standing only and could not fit more than 2 adults. We enjoyed the other amenities, but this is not an ocean front property. The proximity to the beach is amazing, but the rooms face the adjacent properties, not the ocean.

We arrived a hour after check in but the front desk said the system was down and they had to call us back to let us know when the room would be ready. Room was good. Swimming pools were murky!

Everything was right there. We could walk to the beach. There was a reatraunt there that we could get carry out and go to the beach. There was a bar at the pool. And the hotel store had everything you need/want except fruit and was opened late.

Location was nice, view was stretching it to be ocean view but I won’t ding them for it. Elevators...Elevators...Elevators...for such a busy hotel they have put zero investment in updating or improving their Elevators. Frequently we had a 10-15 minute wait for 1 of the 3 Elevators. Sometimes longer because they were just full from everyone else waiting. I know Elevators (it’s something I do for a living) and the speed at which these travel and the programming logic of the controllers is completely off. Who ever is maintaining them should hang up their hat and go into summertime snow removal, they may have more success than what they are at Elevator maintenance.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our online survey regarding your recent stay at our hotel. Your feedback is very important to us and we can assure you that we will use this information to do everything possible to create an enjoyable experience for each of our guests. Our elevators went through a complete modification this past winter. The home bases are set for lobby, terrace level and the 7th floor. During high occupancy we understand it can be challenging to obtain an elevator, speed would not help do to the amount of stops the elevators make on a busy day. Unfortunately adding additional elevators would solve this issue but not an option for us. Thank you again for your feedback.

While everyone was pleasant and helpful and the room was comfortable, the "balcony" left much to be desired. It was only big enough for one person to stand on and not enough room for even one chair. I would have liked to sit on the balcony to watch the ocean.

We're sorry you were disappointed in the balcony. All of them throughout the hotel are the same. We refer to them as standing balconies in all descriptions online and hard copy to avoid confusion. We do offer oceanfront suites in our sister property next door. They are directly oceanfront and have large balconies. We hope to see you at one of our properties again soon. Thank you for your business and feedback.

The hotel was well kept. The all you can eat seafood buffet was amazing.

Nice hotel, kid-friendly

Location: onsite playground, indoor pool, private beach, gym, pet area
We weren't too sure about this hotel when we first booked it. There was only 2 other ones available for the weekend we were going and this was the best option. It looked dated from the pictures, but decided to give it a try. Our stay was great! All the hotel staff from the front desk, to the bellman, to housekeeping, to restaurant staff were so delightful! Everyone had a smile, had a nice and friendly remark to say and were very hospitable. It was great for our kids with the playground, indoor pool, and nice private beach. They had a game room, but we didn't get a chance to go there. It may have been that we went off-season, but considering when we reserved our room in this hotel all the other beachfront hotels in Ocean City were booked, it was pretty quiet. Wish the little store in the hotel had more of convenience items like asprin, toothbrush/toothpaste, soap, etc. The rooms were a little dated and definitely the bathrooms, but that's in a lot of hotels in Ocean City. This hotel also is pet-friendly. We couldn't bring our fur baby this time because of such a short stay, but it's good to know for next time. They even had a nice area by the beach for pets to do their business. Another plus if you have children was the restaurant's all-you-can-eat buffet free for kids 3 and under. It was very convenient to not have to drive or walk too far to go eat. Will definitely come back!
