My daughter and I stayed for one night for a quick getaway. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable! We loved the location on the boardwalk and the view of the sunrise was outstanding!

The room was recently remodeled. Housekeeping was spot on. I have been staying here for about 10 years and has always been the best value on the boardwalk. The manager, Mart Susan and the front desk staff are always very nice and helpful. I have never regretted staying here.

Went for a winter overnight with the family. Got to swim in the pool which apparently just had a new floor covering installed. The hotel was not very busy so we pretty much had the pool to ourselves. Right on the boardwalk. The staff were very nice and helpful. The room was clean and just fine for an overnight.

I came for a little getaway with my kids. The hotel location was positioned close to the boardwalk.

WE love staying here when we visit ocmd! It's nice to walk into a hotel and for them to know your name without telling them! The manager Mary Jane and the other lady who works during the day are awesome. They make you feel very welcomed!!

“Ask for a high floor, with a room facing south for better views. Rooms toward the back/parking lot end may elevator noise.”
