Good hotel and location for the price, right next door to secrets

Great view from our room. Exceptional front desk staff

Hotel staff stalked everyone in there rooms on their balconies like we were doing something wrong?? Like what? No room service as advertised. Breakfast was mediocre and we were over charged for it. I would not recommend this location unless you want no privacy, no service and like being stalked even in the parking lot.

It was terrible I don't recommend this place the only thing that was good was it was next to secrets. The water pressure sucked. No room service. Elevators were so old they wouldn't stop shaking. Did not care for the rude attitude at check in.The cleaning people didn't come clean our room until the second night so we had to use napkins for toilet paper and had no towels no mirrors besides the bathroom one.THIS WAS THE WORST HOTEL EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD! Aside from the rooms being ridiculously overpriced for a small dirty space. dont trash your money

Stayed here over the weekend and we did not have hot water both mornings along with others that stayed in other rooms. Managment has yet to get back to me on the problem. Rooms are outdated and feel old.

I was not a lucky one who received an updated remodeled room. The TV was back from the 1990's, only 1 mirror - a bathroom mirror (which made you dizzy when trying to put make-up on), lighting was soooooo bad - I think that was so you could not see how gross the carpet was. Great location - therefore, I only slept a few hours and showered and got out of the hotel quickly each day. It is all in what you are looking for. A little pricey for what I received. I will definitely look at other hotels in the area for my next stay. Don't stay in the building where you check in ... not the nicest room. Others told me their room was great and they were in different buildings. Also .... no clean washcloths - what is up with that????

It was a nice Hotel, However the beds were falling apart and being help up by wood blocks and the liner on the bottom of the beds was hanging and not very appealing. The bed we were in actually fell off of the wooden blocks while we were in it. Scared the crap out of me!!!! We could not use the Dresser because the drawers were falling apart and on 1/2 of them they would not even open. Had to keep my clothes in the suit cases.

The staff at the hotel is not professional and not friendly. I stay at 12-15 hotels a year for work and play. This one by far is the worse front desk staffed one! I wouldn't stay here for free even!

It was good clean close to beach next to seacrets which was fun like bau area too I soukdnt have to write more and will not rate you again because of this Stop Stop Stop This is ridiculous

We had a great experience! We booked a room with 2 queen beds which were comfortable and the room was spacious! The room included a refrigerator and a microwave. Tidy bathroom. The hotel is on the bayside which means no beach access in the back of the hotel but you can easily cross the street to access the beach! Friendly staff! It's nice to have a bar right in the hotel!

Nice clean close to seacrest would stay again. Walking distance to many places.

ok so this is a pretty dated hotel. it is bayside. it really doesn't have much of a beach. the staff was wonderful. my husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. it was a nice trip. the location was good..... coastal highway. price? well, let's be honest.....it's a beach hotel....depending on the time you go dictates how much you pay.....July top dollar......October, very affordable. if I would have been on a family vacation with young kids we would have selected another hotel....only because the beach offers so many choices.

We just took a mostly unplanned, impulse trip to OC the two days before my school semester started, and this place was available and within my budget. Access to the beach was convenient and far enough from the boardwalk to not be obnoxious. I was hoping for a window overlooking the bay but no such luck. The hotel itself felt like something out of the 60s, which we rather liked. And it wasn't a far walk to Fager's Island which was a fun place for dinner.

We were in town for a wedding that toke place on the beach & saw that the Princess Bayside was close by. We were only staying for 1 night & this place did the job we needed it to. We had to wait a bit to get checked in due the desk people being a little slow. We got the room as described & had a good view of the bay/ocean. The room itself was clean & ready to be used. The beds were comfy & the A/C blasted nice crisp cold air. The room did have WiFi internet which ran pretty fast but the work table was small. There are lots of TV channels available to watch. There is an Outdoor pool on the roof of the other part of the hotel which was cool to see. The building looks a little dated but not that bad. It's a nice hotel to stay at if you are in the area.

Stayed at this Hotel for the first time. Location wise was excellent and their rooftop pool was awesome for the view. Their restaurant is convenient but needs better choice as to their breakfast buffet. Other than that they need to update their furniture in the rooms as well. Bay view rooms are much better than the standard rooms.

Room was average, but comfy. Expensive for the lack of amenities offered, but right next door to Seacrets. Just a 1 minute walk to Seacrets, no bus, taxi or driving needed. Located on Bayside, 2 minute walk to beach. Would stay again for the great location.

There was no hot water Overall, it was an average hotel. Great location from Secrets!

We took our annual trip to Ocean City to spend time with friends and opted for Princess Bayside because of its location on the strip and its low cost. We paid about $100/night. The rooms could certainly use updating and the hotel staff could be a little nicer.

staff was friendly .room was clean and central location was good to enjoy ball of ocean city

This is your typical beach hotel. It has a great location, close to the night life and it offers a great view. The rooms come with a refrigerator and a microwave, which came in handy. We wound up spending some time in their roof-top pool, which was amazing!
