Just a Good experience.....
I went to Ocean City with my 2 kids. The hotel is okay needs remodeling..... old buildings. The location is excellent! Right in front of the beach! Love the outside bar with live music. Breakfast and dinner is self serving I didn’t like that fact so I didn’t eat there. The first day I got wings and fries for lunch it was okay... my biggest complaint was the pool area.... so dirty!! Nobody clean that area for the 3 days we were there... I know because the same trash were there for the 3 times we went to the pool. Also there was no social distancing at the pool seating area. The room was very spacious with kitchen and utensils I liked that part!

Place was nice. They allowed me to check in a little early. It was on the beach and they had a pool. Private gate parking. The bar area had live music, but no dancing signs were up! Happy hour drinks buy one get one for $8.50 were untasteful. Breakfast was take out only.

Went with my husband and my 6 year old son. We had a wonderful time. The distance from the hotel to beach is really close. The pool was fantastic. We had a great mini vacay. Will go again. The picture is the night view from our room.
