I love bringing my Daughter(s) and Grandkids here! FSK is a very welcoming place to visit. The staff are super friendly! Everyone takes care of you on your stay. The Resort is perfect for all kids. It is tucked away off Rt 50 safe and quiet and plenty to do. I highly recommend FSK. We will be coming back again:). Happy Summer!

This is our 6th year at FSK and we won't stop any time soon. Great facilities, staff and prices. New renovations done as well. Went for a weekend getaway and indoor pool was great as well as mini golf. One happy family!

We have been going to FSK for over 5 years and plan to continue for years to come. The resort is very clean, thoughtfully maintained, and well-staffed. It's very clear that they invest a lot of the profits back into the property instead of just resting on their laurels like some other hotels in the area. It's a bit away from the beach but I actually prefer this location and find for our family it's more convenient and centrally located than being on the ocean. We have a lot of food allergies and the kitchen rooms are a godsend, the only way we can travel. There's also a supermarket around the corner. We usually visit in the summer and it's fantastic, we were unable to visit in 2020 due to COVID restrictions and took our first off-season trip this March. So glad we did the kids had a blast! My children range in age from 5 to 14 and they all love it there, so those with mixed ages, rest assured your teens will like it here too!

Excellent family vacation resort. The indoor and outdoor pools are great. The staff is awesome. The vacation homes are the way to go if you plan on staying for a week. We been vacationing here since 2007. Our kids love it.

We were very nervous getting back to traveling, I booked the vacation to celebrate my son's and my birthday. Even driving I thought about all the things that could happen. We have visited many times before, this time it was like we never left. We were greeted as always like family and when we had a small issue it was fixed very quickly (completely my fault). Everything was clean and sanitized, everyone was masked, the quality and friendliness never wavered even with this pandemic. I look forward to our next trip and will 1000000 times over recommend this place for a family trip. Thank you for all you do at Francis Scott Key to make us feel welcome and at home with each and every visit.
