From the indoor Caribbean themed pool to the spray ground and outdoor pool to the mini golf and free shuttle and activities there's so much to do. My 6 and 4.5 year old love it. The resort is...

This place is great if you have a family with young kids. There was plenty to keep them busy and when it rained that enjoyed the indoor water park. We love the family movie and popcorn they do every night as well. The rooms are very clean an comfortable. The shuttle service is an easy way to get to the...

We really enjoyed FSK hotel on our recent trip with three kids 5 and younger. This is definitely not a luxury place, the buildings are old. But it was clean, spacious enough, and the beds were comfortable. It is a huge bummer that there are not separate bedrooms in the room so when the little ones go to sleep everyone...

Thank you for your honest comments. We are an older property but we are and continue to invest and grow. We just completed a major upgrade with our WIFI and we have had very little notifications of issues. We have noticed that you may need to agree each time after the splash page or you may loose the connection. We...

My grandson had a baseball tournament at Ocean City and almost all of the team stayed at the Francis Scott Key Family Resort. It was fantastic! When not at the tournament, there were several activities for the kids. Plus there are multiple picnic tables where we could all gather and eat. We took the shuttle to the boardwalk/beach area. It...

This was our second year staying at The Francis Scott Key Family Resort. My family and I couldn't be happier with the place. There is so much for everyone to do there.

This was our first time to Ocean City and we had a great time! We went with a group of friends who chose this hotel! We could not be any more thrilled with the cleanliness of the rooms to the grounds. The indoor pool was wonderful for kids from 3-12! The outdoor pool area was a little small but the...
