The hotel is a close walk to the boardwalk and beach. The room was clean big enough for a family of four to not feel cramped. But two big issues with the room/hotel: First, the pool is only open until 7pm. 7pm! The hotel's biggest amenity can only be used for part of the day. Evening swimming is fun for...

The room we stayed in was recently renovated and although it was small, it was very nice. The only issue I had was that our room did not get cleaned by the maid due to an oversight. However, we were given fresh towels by the front desk staff. I certainly would stay there again. They need to continue the renovations...

Husband and I wanted a hotel for one night. I called around and was surprised to find 4 hotels had a Friday night available in July. All were around the same price. My family stayed at Impala many times over the years so decided to stay here as it is the nicest and closest to the beach. So glad we...

This motel is centrally located for the main attractions and rides. It is also one of the closest to the beach. However, it behind one of the ride piers, so can be noisey. The northside, though older, is quieter and the pool isn't so crowded. The rooms are very clean, but the bedspreads are the old flower patterned type from...

Hotel was clean and nice. They are updating rooms, one section at a time. We had an older room but it was still clean and nice. They should update those old bedspreads and it would seem like a partial reno for cheap. They must be from the 70s. I understand new furniture, fixtures and carpet must be budgeted and done...

Thank you for visiting the Impala Island Inn while in Ocean City. It is true that we are a tourist destination throughout the summer. Our proximity to the attractions can be an asset for families. However, you may want to join us for a fall-mid week package when the kids are back in school, the weather is still great and...

“We like rooms on the north side across from the main hotel. Quieter and you have your own (much smaller) pool. Great for smaller kids.”
