Great location and excellent view! Nice pool area and friendly Front Desk staff.
location was good for what we wanted
maid did very little cleaning
The location is good, and the beds appeared to be clean. I expected a better update, especially in the bathroom.
The floors were not clean, and the carpet had not been vacuumed. There was cereal on the carpet that had not been cleaned up before or during our stay. The floors were sandy upon arrival. It was not worth the money we paid.
easy and close to the beach
rooms to small
We traveled down to OC early for an extra day on the beach for little mini vacay. Even though we were unable to check-in until 4, we asked about bathroom access for use until check-in. The staff was kind enough to show us one we would be able to use even though we were not yet "official" guests. After check-in, we discovered our room/bathroom was not only very clean but comfortable and everything as promised online. The pool area and all hallways were also very clean. No unpleasant surprises. Also, upon check-out, we were allowed to keep our vehicle in the parking lot with our permit until about 2 pm so that we had some extra time on the beach before heading home.
There was not one thing we didn't like. We will definitely be going back for another stay!
Location Friendly staff Pool
Strong ammonia smell in bathroom.
Location was good.
Tiny gross bathroom with mold. Cleaned the rooms at 4 pm when we were back from the beach already. Didn't vaccum. Will not go back there.
That it had a pool & was on the boardwalk.
Parking was tight, room was small..and smelled moldy & musty.. Had to buy air freshener & keep a.c. Off- no cont. breakfast- the maintenance was poor.. You could see thru door,when it was shut
Location, location, location
Getting old, not too clean, 11 am checkout. Price. Don't expect any service for $340 per night, just place to sleep and great location.
Great location and view. Staff was good and the room was a great value for the price. Definitely will stay there again.
We love it
Wifi wasn't that good
place was clean, of course the view spectacular. The balcony was private, there was a stone wall between you and the neighbors. We were able to walk out of the hotel and onto the boardwalk and beach. The kitchen had a fridge, coffee maker, little toaster oven and micro-wave so we practically were able to live in if we wanted. It’s on the quite side of the boardwalk, which was awesome as there were tons of people watching but you could leave the doors open and listen to the ocean.
Parking was tight and it was hard to get an elevator, we usually were able to walk the stairs, so it was ok.
Location was awesome, right on the boardwalk.
The room was disgusting, literally old food in the carpets and under the beds. Staff want necessarily rude, but not nice either. When compared to the cost of other hotels near by this place was no where near as nice.
breakfast , ocean view
Main door had a 1 1/2 inch gap at bottom of door so even runing air condition non stop did not cool room. Called desk to report and maint put a towel on floor to block. Whole door seemed not secure. Very poor drainage in shower, left standing in 4 inches of water after taking shower. Reported..nothing done for next night.
Very clean. Staff was nice and quick to fix problems.
Everyone was very friendly and really helpful.
Location, nice wide beach, quiet hotel, nice pool. Cool glass elevator.
Door locks were weird, had to get help from staff several times. Also, the glass elevator is really cool but the glass needs to be cleaned. It's really dirty and cloudy.
The size of the room
Staff was helpful when they had trouble with our room. Upgraded us for the same price
Parking is real tight when the hotel is full. Elevator was a bit warm.
Close to beach
Shower in room was terrible water was warm. Never got hot. Water pressure was poor We were on 3rd floor elevator was slow at times Pool looked dirty
This was a last minute get away. Was able to find a great room, with a great view. Very clean, wifi was horrible but that's the only thing I would have them improve
The wifi was very bad
We loved the view. Check in was so smooth.
The stream of the shower wasn't very strong.
Great hotel for the price!!! I came for just one night with my parents who live overseas. The staff at the front desk was so nice that when I asked for an upgrade because I wanted my parents to have a wonderful stay & it was their first time in Ocean City - they upgraded our room to direct Ocean View for free!!! There is also complimentary coffee & water at the reception & a nice pool with Sun beds. Overall - I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends.
It was just a little far from the main Boardwalk happenings but at the same time - that's a good thing if you want to get a good night sleep.
