The property was clean and in a great location. Had many new renovations. Only suggestion would be to switch up the doors on the balconies since you had to keep it propped open or you would get locked out. Would definitely stay again.

This motel is two blocks from the boardwalk and beach and surrounded by shops and restaurants. The staff is extremely friendly and the rooms seem newly renovated. There is a pool area and decks for relaxing as well. The entire Ocean city area is family friendly clean with plenty of activities. We’d come again for sure.

Poor remodeling job. See attached photos
Rooms were redone poorly. The curtains did not cover the window fully. All night we had very bright lights while sleeping. Day people could see our room. Little privacy. I asked to change room they said no. Then told us maintenance has gone for day and can’t help. They I asked for a late checkout they said no. Lots needs to be worked on there. I even asked for a refund and they laughed.

Nice hotel
Clean. Friendly staff. Bike rentals convenient, though I didn’t get the discount claimed. Wish the towels were bigger and the pool was open later. Live music by the pool is nice. Close to a lot. I’d stay again
