Thumbs Down

The curtain was down when we walked in, had to call maintenance. One of our keys did not work. A smelly microwave with a burned substance had to be removed from the room. The elevator was filthy, all the outside glass needs to be cleaned. The coffee shop has great breakfasts, but the service is terrible. We kept losing Internet service; had to keep entering ID and password. There are much better values on the boardwalk for the same price.

Average

Nothing special, nothing to really complain about. Room is OK, bathroom is small, everything is mostly out dated.

Ocean City

The staff was fairly friendly. The room we received wasn't what I expected, and the staff didn't even try to go out of their way to accommodate me. Basically, sorry that's too bad, nothing we can do. The room was ok. Smelled kinda dingy,the carpet felt sticky, sheets were clean. Bathroom was tiny but the shower was brand new and clean. Overall the walls and paint needed to be updated and cleaned. The place looked a bit outdated and old. Room service was ok, but we decided to skip on the daily room cleaning. Just personal preference. The pool out side looked clean, we didn't partake though. Hotel location was right on the boardwalk which is always nice. Elevator was very dirty and very slow moving. Overall a two out of five stars. Definitely needs some TLC on multiple levels.

Very Nice place to stay

Upon arrival the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The friendliness was a good change from other places in the past. The room was quite nice and clean. The bathroom sparkled and we felt quite comfortable there. We enjoyed walking the 27+- blocks on the boardwalk . We will return to this hotel again.

Never Again

I travel alot and this time is the first I ever complained about a room. First I want to say the maintenance on the outside of the building is very maintained. Got to give credit were it is do. But housekeeping is very bad. The sheets were musty, one day are beds were made and garbage taken out but no towels left. The next day no housekeeping at all. Beds not made, garbage not taken out, no clean towels again. The coffee pot had an old filter in it and mold was in the pot. The surge protector at one time was white but was totally black. Was afraid to plug anything in. My sock were black from the carpet not being clean. Old sea shells and sand under the microwave. Stains on the celling from a water leak. Air conditioner very loud. Kept me up. Elevator very very slow. The avertise a heated pool. It was ice water. Everyone was complaining. Was shown as having a complimentary breakfast. There was none. Attendee checking us in was not friendly at all. Checking out attendee was very nice. Our toilet broke and maintenance did come right away. I go to Ocean City alot. Would never stay here again. Same complaints from others staying here. Great location thous. If they got better housekeeping it would be a good hotel.
