Awesome hotel with a live band. Great good

Posted Jul 21, 2014
I loved this hotel I have already told my friends they must stay there. Friendly staff great food. Live band that had everyone on their feet. Oh and right at the beach. The beach was not crowded like down towards the boardwalk. Can't wait to visit again

Nice hotel - All needs available

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: The all you can eat buffet is one of the best. Outdoor Bar/grill and live entertainment.
Cons: N/a
Location: Only had time to golf and hit the beach. Two of my favorite activities. The area is just loaded with beach like acitivites. Biking, Boating, Fisihing.
Stayed for 3 nites. Check in/out was painless and quick. Room was large enough and quiet. Overall didn't have any complaints. Ended up eating at the hotel once we realized that was the best bang for the buck in the area. Although I was with a little child and couldn't take advantage of all the amenities, there is plenty to do at this hotel with the outdoor bar/grill, live music, fitness area.....etc. I would/will definitely go back to Ocean City and stay at this hotel.

Didn't have to leave the resort

Posted Jul 9, 2014
We had a very relaxing three day stay. The hotel was right on the beach, had two pools, an ok gym, several bars, live music, great three-hour-long happy hour and an "excellent seafood buffet." The few things I disliked was the lack of a coffee shop for quick coffee and light breakfast. (Breakfast buffet was not same quality as dinner.) Didn't like staff riding elevators with guests and they need to better stay on top of cleaning glass doors.

Over the 4th

Posted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: Liked the lay out of the hotel, lots of table spaces for eating outside. We were on the 8th floor, and could see both the bay and the ocean.
Stayed over the 4th of July. It was nice. Rooms were clean and smelled clean. Everyone that worked there that we encountered were pleasant. The pool is a little small for the amount of people at the hotel on a crowded weekend. Even smaller is the walk-way around it. With the lounge chairs in some places it does not give the walker much room at all to get by. Life guards seemed attentive. People seemed to be saving chairs, although there is a sign warning against it.

Nice high-end and expensive motel on the beach.

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: Very close proximity to the beach. The staff at the pool and restaurant were very friendly.
Cons: NO DOGS
Location: Far north end, so it is a drive to the boardwalk. There are plenty of restaurants, mini golf, shopping, etc nearby though.
I liked the location of this motel. It is way up north and away from the boardwalk traffic. I did not realize they allow dogs. I HATE dogs. There were a lot if dogs there. Apparently this is one of very few that do allow dogs. Do not stay here if you don't like dogs. The pool was nice. The staff was very good. The beach is right there, and it is very nice. I thought is was overpriced, but we were there July 4th week-end. We were on the top (16th) floor, and as busy as it was, it was a major process getting up and down to our room.

Overpriced and smelly

Posted Jun 23, 2014
Pros: The hotel bar and restaurant.
Cons: The smell, the staff, and the pictures online do not do this place justice in regards to the dirt. Photos should be scratch and sniff.
Location: The location is right on the beach which is nice.
Showed up at the hotel and they incorrectly gave us a two bed room- not the king I ordered. Also room smelled like cigarettes BUT the one saving grace was their offer to move us across the street to the condos which cost more. However we switched rooms twice due to the first one having no AC. We finally got settled at 1am on the first night. Beach access is great but it is packed with people. My girlfriend left her earrings behind and they claim to have never found them even though I told them she left them on the nightstand. Bad experience.

Great accommodations on the beach

Posted May 28, 2014
Pros: Location, quality of accommodations, very friendly and professional staff, plenty of on-site dining options.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Located on the beach, plenty of entertainment options available onsite. Short walk/drive to other dining options.
We arrived early, and although there weren't any rooms ready the front desk staff was extremely accommodating. They pre-registered us and even called to let us know when the rooms were ready. The breakfast buffet at the Oceanfront restaurant was excellent. The gym was well equipped and very large. I will definitely stay here again.

It was right on the beach. Nice restaurant/bar

Posted May 27, 2014
The a/c was not working. They bought in new unit. We requested another room and they accommodate us. As they removed the unit dirt and dust was dispatched in air. Glad we moved. Someone got the room 2 hrs later. Rooms were muggy smelling we bought candles.
