We used to make the trek from No. VA to the Outer Banks every summer, then we discovered Fenwick Island. It is the next "town" north of Ocean City on the DelMarVa peninsula. Fenwick is a "family" town, and that is one of things we love about it. Atlantic Coast Inn is a little hotel on "the bay side of... More

After reading mainly positive reviews, I decided this may be the right motel choice for my family. Was I ever wrong. I understand that hotels/motel rates would be a tad higher when they are situated close to the beach. But, this motel was more like a Days Inn, Family Inn type of joint, that should have been priced accordingly. (like... More

I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. However, this is the first complaint we've had about the rooms being weathered so, I'm sorry that the room was not up to your expectations. The bed coverings and towels are replaced every year, and the rooms were recently painted, so I don't understand how those were outdated for... More

This was our first time staying at the Atlantic Coast Inn. Check-in was simple and quick. The staff was very friendly. We stayed in the back facing the lighthouse.

This is a simple, clean place with great people. Check-in was fast/Check-out faster. All the staff are nice and helpful. If you have kids, it is close to most things that you will go and do. Walking to the beach is easy and just across the road. The water park is walking distance along with Go-Carts and three Mini-Golf Courses.... More

I had been looking for a good deal in any of the Delaware beaches for a long weekend. I searched for 3 weeks on various booking sites and came across the Atlantic Coast Inn.

This is our 2nd stay at the Atlantic Coast Inn - and we are already planning next year. We were greeted warmly and Sandy remembered us from last year. Our room was ready early and we were allowed to check in right away. This isn't a fancy place but it is clean and comfortable. You can't go wrong.

The AC Inn is one block from the beach and close to restaurants, amusements and to Ocean City. I only stayed one night, but the room was very clean and did not smell like the ocean. The property is well kept and the staff was very friendly.

The Atlantic Coast Inn is in a perfect location - 2 minutes from the beach, 3 mini-golf courses around, and not in the everlasting Spring Break party of Ocean City.
