I stayed here with two small children around Labor Day. The front desk staff was very nice and you can't beat the proximity to the beach...but DIRTY!! our room was full of mold! Mold on the drapes,in the shower,on the mini fridge...everywhere. I even found half eaten crackers on the floor(that didnt belong to us)- if things like this matter...

The location was perfect and the cost affordable even on a busy Labor Day weekend. Beds ok. Inexpensive looking toiletries but they worked. Parking was difficult when we got home around 11 pm so I would suggest you either keep your car parked or be sure to come back early if you want to have a parking place at the...

My boys and I stayed here for the night this past August. The motel was very clean and the staff was friendly. We ordered some pizzas from a local pizza place and sat by the pool at the nice tables they have set up and enjoyed dinner outside. The motel is close to everything. Will stay again!

I booked 2 nights midweek. I've been going to Ocean City for over 50 years, and this is the second time I've stayed on Fenwick Island. I love the atmosphere; very quiet and friendly for all ages as opposed to the frenetic atmosphere of OC. I would definately chose Fenwick Islander over the other bay-side hotel I stayed in last...

We didn't expect to stay the night in Fenwick Island, but were tired of driving and thought the town looked cute... we saw a vacancy sign and a pool with a family laughing and enjoying themselves- it looked quant and friendly. We were pulling a trailer behind our car, so ease of getting in and out, and the security of...

The service was good: for the most part the staff was great. Location: right across the highway from the beach, therefore good. Rooms were somewhat clean, and kind of small. A little mold in the bathroom. But the smell of the room was horrible- musty and moldy. The majority of our family slept alright. For us it was not a...

Nothing fancy but very clean. Friendly staff, and very convenient location. Just a minute walk from the beach. I would recommend it to the families who would like to stay away from wild party atmosphere of ocean city. We never had to complain about noise or anything. No elevator though, but talking to one of the staffs I found out...

We recently stayed at the Fenwick Islander Motel and read the previous reviews on TripAdvisor before booking. This was a last-minute trip, so our options were somewhat limited, especially since we weren't booking an entire week. We were grateful to find a few nights available near the beach here. Overall, the Islander is a basic motel - no extras, no...

After booking and checking into an Econo that was so nasty that we were afraid to sleep there, we decided to find another motel. The Fenwick was awesome! The front desk clerk was so friendly and we booked the room for 3 nights. It was walking distance to the beach and shops and of course mini golf. The pool was...

My wife and I just spent another week at the Fenwick Islander for our 1st anniversary! We decided to stay at the Islander again, as we have stayed there quite a few times over the last few years. We were in a canal view king room on the 2nd floor. The hotel is still a great deal, and overall very...
