Short Stay

We traveled to Ocean City primarily to visit with friends from Albany NY. Our room was clean and ready upon our arrival. The morning breakfast was a fine selection of hot & cold foods. The staff was always friendly and ready to help if needed. I would suggest that the management evaluate the bathtub as it was slippery. I would be surprised if prior visitors didn't mention this aspect of the facility.

Harpoon Hannah's is just a few minutes away by car. We found it a pleasant way to enjoy a meal with a water view.

Great Location!

This was a weekend getaway for my family. Very nice and clean hotel. The kids loved the pools and hot tub. I was really surprised how quiet our room was considering a traveling soccer team stayed on the same floor. Breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly. The beach was right across the street and the main strip is right there full of places to eat. I would definitely recommend and stay again.

Totally Inappropriate Actions by Staff

We chose this hotel originally because of the great reviews it received here and elsewhere. We reserved a double, non-smoking room via an online travel. Upon arrival on the afternoon of August 5, we were assigned to a smoking room. We knew immediately that we could not stay in the room because of the pervasive smoke odor, which not only was unpleasant but also was likely to exacerbate health issues for our 6 year old child. No other rooms were available. The front desk staff gave me a partial copy of a printout on which they noted that the “preferences” for reservations made through the website upon which this review is posted(we did not go through that route, but they kept claiming that we did) are not guaranteed, and whatever is available at the time of arrival is given to the customer. We went outside and discussed our options. It was clear we needed to cancel and find other accommodations. We called our online travel service, who to their credit called the hotel and attempted to negotiate on our behalf. The hotel would not budge on the requirement that a one night penalty be paid for cancellation, even though we were given something we did not request and could not use. We were not happy with this outcome, as it meant that we were paying over $260 for something we could not use. However, we did not dispute it. We returned the keys to the front desk and asked for a receipt or other documentation of the cancellation. After much back and forth, the front desk personal told us it was not possible to get a receipt for the paid cancellation fee, and even refused to give us a copy of the registration that I had signed. The front desk clerk called her manager, who apparently said she was not permitted to give me a copy. I grew very concerned by the way this was being handled, fearing that I would be charged for the entire stay. So I took a picture of the front desk personnel in order to have some kind of documentation. One of them, a very large guy, immediately attempted to physically intimidate me and my family. He drew close to me and threatened to smash my phone. Then he said he would call the police. I stated that it would be assault and that I would welcome police intervention. He withdrew to a corner and bluffed phoning someone. After waiting for several minutes, we left the premises. I called our online travel service to verify cancellation and proper crediting of my account. We also found more friendly, courteous, professional, and cleaner accommodations further up the coast.

Very Good Value for Familes or Couples

This was a very good experience at a reasonable rate. The location is excellent, if you don't want to be on the O.C. boardwalk every day (and we sure don't#. If you don't mind being a block from the beach #and we also don't#, this place is located close enough to the beach, restaurants, Dumser's, mini-golf and has two pools and a free breakfast too! There's a nice park behind the place #too walk-off the food) and the best burgers at the O.C. Abbey. I shouldn't be writing such a positive review because the rates will go up!

It was decent

Breakfast was decent. Friendly Staff. Room was clean. A block from the beach. About four miles from the boardwalk. Great if you have a family and you want to avoid the crazy crowd around the boardwalk
