HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 October 2016

After our reservation was cancelled for another hotel in Ocean City we were fortunate enough to get a room here for the same price. We were expecting to be in a suite overlooking the outdoor pool but were pleasantly surprised to see we received a suite facing the ocean and we could quite literally walk out our back door onto...

The Commander Hotel location and accommodations were excellent. The hotel amenities met all of my family's needs. Exceptional front desk staff (especially Debbie). We will definitely stay here again. I recommend this hotel if you want to stay at the center of OC.

Not your usual boardwalk hotel. Very clean. Very friendly staff quick to answer Qatar. Hotel has been updated with hardwood floors. Close to several locations. Indoor and outdoor pool. Didn't rate 5 stars because parking is very limited.

This is by far the best hotel in Ocean City. The rooms are newly re-modeled and immaculate! Mike and his staff treated us like Kings and Queens the minute we walked in the door and this was special for us. My 82 year-old pastor and his wife spent time in this area and for his retirement wanted to come back...

We went for our 5th anniversary, for the weekend. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were very nice, spacious and clean. The only thing we would change is next time we will request being put in a room, higher up than the 1st floor. We would definately stat here again and would recommend this hotel to others.

We had a great time at your hotel. The room and view were fantastic! We did not want for anything! We also enjoyed your indoor pool. My son enjoyed the Grotto pizza. We look forward to our next time at your hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Commander unveils a $5 million dollar renovation which features 3 different types of accommodations: Our Oceanfront Suites Our Oceanview Studios Our Cabana Suites overlooking the pool yet are still only steps from the beach. As you set sail for one of Ocean City’s finest oceanfront hotels, the vacation you deserve awaits you!

Rediscover the hotel where fun and relaxation have been the standard for generations. Here you can look forward to days spent on the guarded beach. At lunch enjoy a cold drink and bar fare at our pool side bar while soaking up the sun rays, or simply relax in the cool atmosphere of our indoor pool. In the late afternoon, you might find yourself on the private balcony of your oceanfront suite, watching the fishing yachts returning home after a day of fighting the white or blue marlin. This is a great time to plan your evening dining menu with the great variety of culinary delights Ocean City has to offer. If time or weather are an issue, simply make your way to the family friendly onsite Grottos Pizza and see for yourself why they are the first name in pizza here on the shore.
