If you absolutely need an elevator this isn't the place for you. There is only one elevator and it was having enough issues that many guest chose to take the stairs even when it was working.

There is NO WAY they didn't know the toilet in room 503 was a problem. That handle did not work from the moment we got there. I extended them some grace & requested a repair Tuesday morning. They did a bandaid fix where surgery was needed and it was back to broken in short order. Everywhere we went, we had to remember to get everyone to use the toilet wherever we went. NOT GOOD. I was there recovering from extensive eye surgeries so it was a HUGE issue for me to have to find another bathroom to use. They don't even have any in the lobby. After getting a toxic call from me to the front desk, they sent up someone on Wednesday eve to replace the broken toilet handle. I tried to enjoy my day on Thursday but the issue of not having a functioning toilet ruined my mood that whole trip and I was unable to enjoy it at all by Thursday. We checked out after dinner on Thursday night because there was no way to restore what we had lost on that trip.

I read the reviews AFTER I booked, which made me fearful of what we were walking into since they were mostly bad. I travel for work often so I’ve seen some pretty crappy places as well as some really high scale ones. However, we were so pleasantly surprised when we showed up! The staff were so nice. They let us into our room an hour early without hesitation. The place was conveniently located and the rooms were great! It’s the beach so I expected sand to be everywhere, it’s unavoidable. The rooms were clean and well maintained throughout our stay. We had clean towels daily. The two pools were wonderful since we have a little one and the one even has a bar/grille which was even better for us! Honestly, I’ll stay here every year we come to OCMD!

The main buildings ice machines were not working. 1 elevator (which is extremely slow) in the main building. Got called 2 times after midnight to check if we were smoking in our room, told front desk that was sleeping the first time and the proceeded to call second (when stated must be a faulty sensor).
