When we checked, first thing keys did not open the hotel room. When the manager opened the door for us, the room was stuffy and damp. He then turned the ac on. The first thing we noticed the room had a sofa bed that had stains all over it, looked like it came from a junk yard. Both the sofa... More

That's the only thing good with this place. The staff. Everything else was TERRIBLE! Even for the cheap price I paid I still felt robbed. We were able to check in early at 9am. It was today, September 24, 2016 Saturday of the Sunfest. So far so good. Got to the room and everything fell apart. The AC was so... More

So our vacation was all planned out but then along came a tropical storm which increased to a hurricane. The weather forecasters didn't give an exact track until two days before the booking. As soon as they said the storm was going to be right on the coast, we tried to cancel our booking. The hotel would not refund our... More

This will probably be deleted by the hotel so read quickly. I've stayed almost everywhere in ocean city over fifty years this was, by far, my worst experience. I was told on the phone i was being given a first floor room poolside. When i got there they showed me to a dingy, tiny room up the stairs. The room... More

The front desk was very nice and accommodating. I came with my boyfriend for fourth of July weekend and it was honestly just a place to stay. I wasn't too pleased with the bedding because there was a sh** stain on it so thankfully we brought all of our own blankets and sheets. the location was awesome however wasn't pleased... More

Spartan. That's a good word to describe this motel. The very basics. Nice tv. Tiny bathroom. No breakfast. Decent beds. Decent pillows. Decently clean. An ok place to stay if you're spending all your time at the beach. If you love the nicer amenities, stay somewhere else. The front desk folks range from super helpful and friendly to being bored...

Pictures shown when booking were very misleading. Put on level 4, no elevator on property. 1 key we were given didnt even work, so got locked out and had to wait to be left in. Pictures will show the rest, not to mention water leaked all over the floor from the shower. I will never stay there again.

We stayed here in May and it was terrible. The room rate was raised after we arrived, even though we had a confirmation. There was no heat in the room. Towels were ridiculously small, no hangers available, no guaranteed parking, no ice or ice buckets on premises, no tissues, no hook or towel rack, no working air conditioning, front door... More
