This was our 3rd visit. This hotel takes you back in time with the antique furnishings and oceanfront porch, including rocking chairs. The location is on the boardwalk which is perfect for people watching! The rooms are small and dated but always clean and comfortable. The staff is vey accommodating.

This is a wonderful place to stay while in OC. The staff was so friendly and nice, giving us information and drawing us a map of where we wanted to visit. The rooms were small but very clean and breakfast was simple but a nice added touch. I will be staying here again as it was a great value as...

As a child, my husband's family would spend time at the Lankford. Since his mother loves OC and has not spent time there in a while, we decided we would take her there overnight for Mother's Day. She was flabbergasted when she found out where we were going. My husband called a few days prior to be sure we could...

I attend a stitchers retreat every May. I've prolonged the three day retreat to a whole week because I love the atmosphere so much! The people who work there, and the adjoining Salty Yarns shop are friendly, happy, eager to please, and offer excellent customer service. You can't beat the view.

Mary, her sister, and their families keep a very clean and charming hotel. I would not consider another in Ocean City. Always a great stay - Thank you and see you with family for Memorial Day Weekend 2017!

We stayed about 11 years ago and now we are going back this August! Loved the rocking chairs on the front porch and having coffee every morning with the sunrise over the ocean! Love the vintageness of the property and the location also! We stayed in the TERN and now we are staying in the WREN. Can't wait!

Located in downtown OC on the Boards. One of the few Older Hotels in Ocean City that haven't sold out to national chains and been demolished. I love the Lankford, have been going for years and find the quaint family style atmosphere very very refreshing. No sacrifice of modern necessities however as wifi is standard.

We have been staying here with family every year for 10+ years. The staff make you feel like family. The hotel and some of its buildings are located directly on the boardwalk. Many of the rooms have recently been updated. This place is a GREAT place for families with children. We can't say enough great things about this place. Don't...
