Probably one of the best experiences at a hotel in OC. We booked a standard room with a king bed and we were upgraded to a Ocean Front room upon arrival. The room was a bit smaller then we are used to but it was perfect. The view was great but didn't have a balcony but that's fine. The bathroom...

We just stayed here for a quick overnight, but it was lovely! The porches with rocking chairs are great, the young man who checked us in was so sweet! The location is awesome if you want to be on the boardwalk. We just had a double room, which only had a bed and one chair, so you wouldn't want to...

This is a very nice older hotel. It is really three (or more?) properties that close to each other. I stayed in The Lodge with my wife and daughter. The room was clean and nice but a bit on the smallish side. The room had a big closet that was useful for storing suitcases, Boogie boards, etc.. It was an...

We had original reservations at a nearby hotel but due to a mix up we had to get a room for the night here. And I'm so glad we did!! Very beautiful and homey feel about this place. It is well kept and the rooms are decently spacious. Very quiet and peaceful stay. It offers breakfast which is nice because...

Recently stayed in this Historic Hotel on a short visit to Ocean City. The Location couldn't be better. You walk out the front door and off the porch and you are on the boardwalk! Across the boardwalk and you are on the Beach! It is an Historic Hotel, so you should expect as much in your room and the decor!...

We have stayed here for years in the Sea Robin II which is a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath apartment in a cottage. It has front and back porches with great ocean and beach views. This is a wonderful old fashioned family hotel and apartment property. Washer and dryer are in the unit and bath towels are available everyday if needed....

Why do I Love the Lankford? As a kid my family had a beach house, old, antiques, small rooms, small bathroom. What it did have was family. The Lankford Hotel is like that. You feel like it is your beach house where you and family can come together, spend evenings on the porch or living room (lobby), kids can come...

No complaints! Check in staff was friendly and through about my stay and their policies. The rooms are small but I didn't really mind. They had all the essentials I needed for my stay and made feel at home. This was my first time at a family run hotel and it was great. I work for a hotel and this...

We come to Ocean City in June, July, and August every year for a few days and we always stay here. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The beds are dreamy, the hotel is super clean, and the location can't be beat. The owners go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant and relaxing. It is so...

My family has been staying at The Lankford for several generations. I grew up going there as a kid during family vacations to Ocean City. I always remembered it as being fairly old but reliable - nothing exactly special. After not visiting for there for almost ten years, I'm pleased to say that The Lankford has maintained its historic charm,...
