This hotel is a block or two from the end of the boardwalk, so we had to ride the bus or tram each day. But very close proximity to Embers seafood, miniature golf,and happy Jack's pancake house, some of our ocean city favorite spots. The hotel was not the cleanest,there were tags from clothing under the sofa, which gave me the impression that housekeeping never checked underneath of it when cleaning prior to our arrival.The toilet had what appeared to be black spots on it maybe cigarette burns of some sort. However ,we booked a pool view and upon arrival requested Oceanview, we were going to pay for the upgrade, the staff gave us the upgrade free of charge because of availability. Another plus, we requested so many towels because of our in and out beach activities and so many showers, each time we called to request them within 5 minutes of our call the towels were at the door. Cons; too far away from boardwalk & rooms could be cleaner. Pros; friendly staff, direct beach access, unlimited towels, close to activities our family loves. I would definitely stay again.
