What can I say about this motel? The rooms are damp and smelly...a mix of stale cigarette smoke and mildew. We had to move rooms because of the smell. There were no duvets, only weird velour blankets with crusty and threadbare spots on them, no drinking glasses, no telephones (weird), and the tiniest bathroom ever (the sink was a huge...

Its an ok old place to stay. I think the rates should have been cheaper. Rooms are pretty nice. Great outdoor pool. Outside room doors need to be replaced. We had to move to another room because there was a big gap in the door so others could see inside the room. Upgrades very much needed at this place. Staff...

Actually I would give it 2 1/2 stars for the half job they did to update the rooms. The walls are painted, beds were comfortable and thank God no bedspreads, but the bathrooms were not good, toilet stained and didn't flush, bathtub/shower needs replaced as well as tile. We travel budget motels alot but as long as the older rooms...

I have to admit I was scared to give the motel a try. This was going to be my sons first trip to the beach and I wanted to make it special. We picked Beach Bum because it stated it was just a short walk to the beach. It really was!! Just cross 1 main road and you are at...

DO NOT STAY HERE, IT'S AWFUL! The bed was duct taped together, there were holes in the walls, tar like substance on the room fixtures, the ceiling was atrocious, and the bathroom was moldy. It was misrepresented on booking.com as being on the boardwalk it is not. I took pictures of the room it's that bad! Staff were liars as...

If you like flies then you'll love this hotel!!!! Over 50 flies in the 1st room they gave us. They did move us to the room right next door that had about 5 flies, which you could say is better, NOT!!!! The room was dirty and the toilet didn't flush. We checked out without spending 1 hour in the room....

If you are looking for something close to the beach, nothing fancy, this is the place. No clock or phone in the rooms. Decor retro 70's Beach Bum. Location to the beach, boardwalk, etc. within a short walk. Staff is friendly and helpful in recommending places to eat or see to make the Ocean City experience memorable. We enjoyed our...
