Perfect location in between Ocean City, MD and Bethany Beach, DE. Quiet at night. We had a nice view of the bay. Karen at the front desk is absolutely lovely! Hotel is only open six months in the year - during summer season. It is only two floors with no elevator.

Pool and overall property cleaniness/maintenance was great. Few random spots of minor disrepair but given that it's so close the the beach that's pretty understandable (and still cleaner/nicer than home). My only real complaint is with some of the amenities. Ice machine was free, but they had a single unit that was almost always out of ice, and some of the refrigerators didn't have a freezer compartment (we had 2 reservations so did a room swap). Made it difficult to keep things cold for the beach... and the tvs worked great for our switch but the cable tv was fuzzy. Most of the 3 rooms were 2 double beds which is hard to actually sleep 2 to a bed. Still, price was pretty good, and considering some of the other motels we were looking at, I'd recommend checking this place out. End of story it was CLEAN and all staff involved were very friendly, even with our fairly obnoxious room swap.

Last time we came in May, we had a wonderful experience. This time around we had one room that has a smell of throw up and it was very unpleasant. I did talk to the front desk on friday and when we returned after being out for the day the smell was still there. We did try and find where the smell was coming from by cleaning around the area, and it was filthy (the kitchen area - crumbs, sticky, the floor, we passed a wipe to see if it was something there and it came up black/filthy. The floors were not clean at all.) but we were still unable to determine exactly where it was from. Our other room was fine and my family had a pleasant experience in there.
