Overall a great place to stay. Only negative remark was the shower had absolutely no water pressure and the shower head sprayed in 900 different directions. But other than that great place with friendly staff

Loved our stay here. Only few things were some old broken chairs, no blackout curtains, no conditioner or lotion, no tv in bedroom, and trash truck both mornings at 5 am. These were very minor issues and suggestions. Hotel was wonderful and under beautiful modifications. Very convenient and walkable to everything around. Enjoyed our stay and will stay here again.

We made a last-minute, one-night reservation. The hotel is, simply put, old and tired. They are doing some renovations - adding a breakfast area and a huge deck out front, but that does not help with the 1960's-style rooms with ancient bathrooms. Be prepared that there is NO soundproofing, so everything on the main street and in adjacent rooms will be perfectly audible. But the place was clean and beds (2 twins) were comfy. The location was very good - 15 minute walk to Jolly Roger area and had lots of good shopping and food choices nearby. Parking was free (big deal in OC) and right outside the back door. Only 1 person was working the desk at any time, so they were hard to find. But the check-in and check-out processes were good. Given the very good price, we were OK with this one-night stay. We are world travelers and have certainly stayed in much worse places, but we would not likely stay again.

The Lankford Hotel will be 100 years old next year! Staying there is like staying at your great-grandmother's home. It is not a modern hotel. Sitting on the Atlantic Ocean for 100 years, it has character and ambience that modern hotels do not have. It is exactly 200 steps from the front desk to toes in the Atlantic Ocean. It sits on the boardwalk with a beautiful upper porch deck from which to watch the sunrise. The rooms are small and there is no elevator. However, the location on the boardwalk at 8th Street couldn't be much better. The hotel is undergoing some renovations and will include a coffee snack shop once completed. Another thing to know is that the doors to the hotel are locked between 2:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m., so if you are a late night partier either be back in before 2:30 or don't bother to come back until after sunrise! The hotel recently changed hands. For those who have stayed before, the wonderful John is still there, and Cheyenne and front desk staff are just lovely people. Everything about being at the Lankford was homey and comfortable and the people staying there we're very very nice! I would stay there again, however because I am older I wouldn't stay there in the middle of August because of the issues I would have walking up and down the steps in the heat. Again, you can't beat the location at 8th Street, 200 steps from the Atlantic Ocean. I plan on returning and staying at the Lankford for future trips to Ocean City, making it an annual trip.
