        Great location! Just about the only thing going for the hotel, but it's about half a block from Seacrets, a block from the beach and a short bus ride or walk to the boardwalk. Finnagan's, the bar on the first floor is fun too.

        Walls were very thin- we could hear the people in the room next door talking and we could hear their tv Toilet was broken- it leaked water all over the bathroom floor- when we arrived, the water to the toilet was shut off, so clearly someone knew about it Front desk staff was rude- the lady at the front desk had a horrible attitude. Everything was 'yelled' at us. Total price was a lot more than the quote on Per our booking confirmation, the total was $188. After taxes and 'additional fees' that were not mentioned on booking, the total was $266. $78 in taxes and fees- just be aware.

        The hotel staff was rude and inconsiderate. Not only were we charged multiple fees that either were not made privy to us prior to booking our rooms or had no basis to be charged, but the attitude of the staff when we asked about these fees was curt and abrasive, particularly at the front desk. They are severely lacking in customer service, and we will never even consider using this hotel again for our multiple trips to Ocean City.

        It was close to several attractions.

        We stayed in the old hotel which needs major upgrades. The bathrooms do not have a fan, the lights were burned out, the air conditioner was broken and the Finnegans rest, listed breakfast buffet but when we sat down to eat there was only half the food they advertised.

        Nothing. Horrible stay.

        I was over charged and our room had mold in the bathroom. The mold made a friend of mine sick and I personally got sick on the day of my stay. I would never recommend your hotel to anyone.

        The room was very clean.

        The elevators were very slow. Not enough handicapped parking for front of building. Some employee's were not very friendly did not make eye contact or greet you. Housekeeper did not understand english. Do not disturb sign went missing from door took 5 minutes to explain what I needed from houskeeping

        The rooms could use a updating and the housekeeping staff could be a little more attentive

      • Older travelers

        The staff seemed friendly and helpful. Easy access to the beach.

        We were disappointed as the information and pictures on the booking site did not mention that there were two separate buildings one right on the coastal highway and one set further back and to the left. It felt disceptive. The room was okay, the wallpaper under the window was peeling off and you could see the black mold. The website also booked up for 4 when we had indicated 2 adults so there was a price difference that we had to work out with the hotel.

        I was not impressed with the room. Definitely needs updating. The shower in the bathroom had mold. Beds were not comfortable. We did not have a balcony or full size refrigerator. I will not be staying here again.

        Proximity to beach, laundry access available. CLean, well kept and comfortable beds. I would stay there again.

        Location of beach

        Stayed in the older part of hotel. Not enough room in the room. Water pressure was bad - water temperature want from hot then cold, then - not one temperature.

      • Family with children

        Shower pressure was poor. You either got a freezing shower or scalding hot shower. At one point we lost hot water all together. Air conditioning only worked when it wanted to. Had to drive around for at least 20 minutes to find a parking spot. The outside pool was in a whole other building. When we had to check out a evening early due to a family emergency only thing the staff was worried about was there money and they were very rude then and the whole stay and to top it off we had to pay for a safe we didn't even use. Oh and the bay was nothing of what they advertised

      • Older travelers

        We stayed here only because it was all we could find on short notice. Given more time I would have stayed else where.

        The maid service was not that great and the boiler broke so there was not hot water for showers. Also no balcony. We knew this when we booked but what is ocean city without a balcony?.
