We stayed here 3 nights during Labor Day Weekend and honestly had a great time. The Bay view was great to wake up to and I loved that 48th St. Watersports was just downstairs, so traveling to do some activities wasn't necessary. The less than handful of issues was our coffee maker was broken and the screen from our sliding door wouldn't lock but we worked around that. It is one of the older Hotels in OCMD but in all it was a great time!

Hotel was loud; there were guests up until all hours of the night playing loud music and being disrespectful. The hotel tried to have their security handle one night and the guests were horrible toward him and then he disappeared. We did not see him again. I thought it would be quiet being on the bay and away from the boardwalk- complete opposite. There was one woman who was sweet and helpful and that is it. If the could get more people like her- it would make the stay better-- she was actually concerned about handling the disturbances and how we felt while we were there.

Overall good stay..TV didn't work upon check in..Issue was fixed promptly..Housekeeping didn't come after first night..Had to call lobby to have towels brought to room..Daily housekeeping is not provided I guess

The view of the water was great i didnt like the shower

They did not clean rooms. Long check in time due to no cleaning staff. Terrible experience. Will never go there again.

Stains on bedding. X drawn on wall, wallpaper peeling under curtains. Under beds not vacuumed. They gave us early check in but there were only two thin towels in room no washcloth or hand towels. Ate at the hotel restaurant that os a pub and they were out of reuben then still attempted to charge me for ordering them. There chocken wings looks like pigeon wings. To top it off the receipt they gave me showed I paid $431 and I was billed $491 by Orbitz.

Roof top pool cool No roof top bar though, must be a weekend gig.

Lobby smells like alcohol. Room wasn’t cleaned first day. I called to get service to the room and was told okay. Then after waiting a while I was told this couldn’t be done till tomorrow. My room wasn’t cleaned the second day either but luckily after I found a housekeeper in the hall they got around to cleaning my room.

This property is overpriced. We found dirt , mold, and ceiling tiles falling down. Had to call security twice during the night for fights and drinks in the hall outside our room.

While the location is great, there really is nothing else good I can say about this place. I looked at the reviews beforehand and tried to give this place the benefit of the doubt but it’s exactly what the reviews say. We traveled over 3 hours and get to a long check in line at around 4:45 and are told our room isn’t ready yet and to come back. Nobody gave me a time or estimate. We figured we’d wait somewhere and call in a bit to check the status even though we had nowhere to go. We go find a nearby parking lot and hang around in the car for an hour. I call the hotel and spoke with a woman named Barbara who was very nice and told me to come back in a half hour. So it’s now almost 6pm and we’re waiting in another long line and finally check in around 6:15. I guess I should’ve expected the place to be busy on July 4th weekend but I spent almost $400 on one room for ONE night. You would think they would treat us a little better. I felt bad for the front desk staff as there were so many people in line complaining and customers coming down to complain about room issues. The girls in the front were friendly and did the best they could - I think management needs to do a better job with ensuring that customers can indeed check in At 4pm. If not, then I think you ought to change the check in time or give customers a heads up/courtesy call. Unless you are paying less than $100 a night, I wouldn’t recommend staying here. This is truly a 2 star hotel.

No wi-fi in room, only in lobby, my room was divided with next room with connected locked door only with totally stranger people, no privacy, hear them like they are my room actually there my room because there wasn’t wall between to rooms only door... curtain was smell of dust also broke ... air conditioning side has a space between to wall, cold ocean breeze blowing through my room from outside , when i open heater bad burn smell full the room in a just 10 second and didn’t go away hours i get sick after that... the room was totally junk, like homeless home not hotel... the old lady in the lobby wasn’t nice to us, she was like strict teacher rebuke her student with her harsh tone, the other two young employees and cleaning employees was very nice and friendly...

The staff was rude, my check in was around 6 PM and the room smell bad.

Great location, so many options to go around the area.

Nice place to stay. Quiet . It would be nice if they have exercise room.

Conviently located. Hotel is clean the staff was fine. The price was very good.

beer cans and cups left from previous occupant. Window leaked when it rained.

Princess is an amazing hotel..... for it's location directly next to Seacrets resort. As for as being modern, well upkept, or comfortable this rates very poorly. The hotel style is old, the flooring and paint is old, the bathroom was small and didn't have a fan. The water pressure was bad as well. For 300 a night the rooms were more on the scale of an econolodge than a resort hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us regarding your stay. We apologize to hear that there were noise issues from unruly guests on property. It is certainly a disappointment to us on property when there are guests who ruin a stay for others at the property due to noise. I apologize to hear that our onsite security team were not able to property address this issue with the guests. We will definitely review with our onsite security director.
