Sea Bay Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The lobby seems almost presentable but as soon as you walk into the hallways of the hotel, you see just how old and badly maintained it is. The walls and carpets are dirty. The room had such a stench of mold that I wondered whether I and my two kids would get sick from a one nights' stay. All the other hotel rooms were sold out in the area and the hotel did not have any other rooms so I did not complain about the smell and decided to stay the night. However, later that night, I found bottles, skittles, chapsticks under the bed and beer cans on the balcony. It was already midnight and my kids were asleep so I decided that I would not go to complain about the room and leave them unattended. We were only staying for one night. In the morning, though, I found a pubic hair in the bed and I decided that $250, although cheaper than other hotels that weekend, was simply unreasonable considering the discomfort caused by the dirt, the stench, and the disgust I felt. I complained to the staff upon check out who was very gracious and apologetic about the situation. I told them that I do not want a refund but simply a discount on the room. They offered to refund $50. I am glad that they were able to do something. Considering that I did not complain as soon as I noticed the problem, the solution was acceptable.

West building of the hotel was old. Rooms were not very clean. Sheets on the bed were dirty with stains on the bottom of it. Only stayed two nights so we did not complain but would definitely not stay there again.

Decent and cheap, worth the stay on a budget. Would recommend

Hotel was nice, inside was clean and staff very welcoming. Would stay here again.

We enjoyed our stayed. The hotel is really closed to the beach and our room was over looking the bay. Very pretty.

It was comfortable. Check in and check out process was hassle free.

Always great the Staff is always very helpfull never a problem at the SeaBay. This was our fifth time their

The location of the SeaBay is perfect! It is within walking distance to anything you could possible want. Shelly and her staff are awesome! There is always hot coffee brewing in the lobby. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This was our third summer staying at the Sea Bay and we were having so much fun that we extended our trip by 2days.

We had a great stay at the Sea Bay Hotel, walking distance to beach and beach bars......two pools and an excellent café on the premises.....room was clean and had a nice balcony.....an older hotel that has been kept up with a great staff.....overall a very good experience....planning to return next year!

Was a very good hotel at a decent price. Rooms were a bit dated (which truly isn't that important). Most important was that the rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, staff is very friendly and we had no problem finding a parking space (which can be a nightmare at times!). Would stay here again.

Getting the right room (bay view) in the right building (smaller one) was key for us. The first room had unpleasant odor, but housekeeping and desk staff cheerfully helped us -- ultimately with different room. Being right in the middle of OC (60th St) was big help, as we visited all of it, from inlet to Delaware line. Sea Bay Cafe was definite plus -- for breakfast, food was tasty, staff very friendly and efficient (afterthought side order was produced in about 2 minutes), and very reasonably priced. Mattresses were a bit soft, blankets and towels kind of thin, and soap of the cheapest variety. Letter from newish owner (2 years) says that they are slowly updating things.

well worth the money ,very clean . staff was excellent and very helpful and friendly . The restaurant was very good, very reasonable prices ,staff there was excellent .Plenty of parking at this hotel . Great view on bay side in west building . Only downside was the small full size beds and not comfortable if you are on the heavy side .Would go back.

The hotel was mediocre as far as bed comfort and decor but the staff was great with cleaning. Location is close to the bars but we drove to the boardwalk in the morning and parking was very easy to find!

Our stay was a pleasant one. Location of hotel is nice and price is good.

The location was great and the rooms were huge. It was well worth the off-season cost and would go back to this location.

I booked this hotel for quick birthday get away and was very pleased with location. The room were dated but perfect for price and one night stay. Worth it!

Closeby all the attractions. Good place to stay. Highly recommended.

We have girls weekend every year and typically stay at this hotel due to the close proximity to both Fager's Island and Seacrets. The hotel is nice, but nothing fancy. The rooms are spacious and all come with a mini fridge, microwave, and balcony.

Sea Bay Hotel was affordable and convenient. My friends and I booked Sea Bay for H2Oi 2014 in Ocean City, MD and were fully able to enjoy the event because of Sea Bay Hotel's close proximity to the action. The balconies for the rooms were an appreciated addition for relaxing after a long day and to enjoy the H2Oi night life.

Normal sized room with good amenities. Air conditioning worked well. Bathroom was not cleaned everyday and toiletries were not replaced daily. Towels were not bath sized so we had to request extras every day.
