They upgraded me to a suite at no charge...what a blessing. The parking was a little tightly packed. I have a minivan and I had trouble getting out of the parking space and needed to be guided as not to hit anyone else's car. Pool was nice size. Breakfast was not free but the cafe had good breakfast downstairs.

Great place to stay Ocean View Preferred. Would’ve been better if the pool was heated (for cool nights). Second floor cleaning staff is Awesome. In a great location for everything. Will be returning!!

There was sand under the blankets when we went to sleep from the previous guests and I took all the bedding off so the cleaning lady would put a new set on and she just put the same ones on! I called the desk and they said someone would come change them and they never did. Never refilled anything, I had to go get it myself. The bathroom was too small to change your clothes in. The cafe wasn’t open on the hours posted. To get your coupons you had to go to the website and the internet wasn’t working the entire stay.

Close to the beach, very dirty.

Family of 4 Staid one night, very dirty the floor was not washed or vacuumed. Dirty bathroom but they did have clean sheets. We arrived late, if we came earlier I would make them clean or give us a different room.

Nice hotel on the beach and boardwalk.

We wanted to be close to the beach and boardwalk. This hotel is both. It is on the far end of the boardwalk, so it's a bit of a hike to the end with the rides and stuff, but we didn't mind. The tram ($3.00 per person for one ride) passes right by the hotel, so that's an option if you choose. The hotel is clean, the staff was friendly and the pool is open until 10pm. The room was a little small but it was fine for 2 adults and a four year old. The beds were comfy and clean and we had plenty of towels. The balcony had nice chairs and a small table. Perfect for morning coffee. They offer coffee and water in the office as well a sodas and snacks to purchase. I do wish they had vending machines instead so it was a little more convenient, but overall it was fine. The parking lot filled up fast and the rows are close together, so keep that in mind if you drive a large vehicle. We were pleased with this hotel. We would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! We are so very happy to hear your stay with us was clean and comfortable and that you enjoyed your time here on the "quieter" side of the Ocean City Boardwalk! We are also certainly glad that our wonderful staff was friendly and accommodating! New for this year we have added a secondary, overflow parking lot across the street to accommodate all of our guests- please keep that in mind if you return to stay with us again! We hope to see you soon! Thank You, Dan C.
