The only reason we ended up staying here is because when our week long reservation was up at another hotel,we weren't ready to go home, and they had no vacancies. We should've just gone home! Our room was filthy,stinky...just gross! My husband found weed in the top of the closet and some clothes that belonged to the previous people. The pull out couch was beyond disgusting! Thank goodness we had sleeping bags in the car,so my kids didnt have to sleep directly on the "bed". We had no hot water in our room...NONE!!! I had some random guy knock on our door looking to buy drugs from the previous occupant. Later that evening the cops were there bc of the same guy. The "pool" was so tiny, it's like the size of a baby pool. My kids couldn't even stay in it long bc of the rowdy heathens that were jumping, splashing,and fighting with each other all while unsupervised. One kid got out and peed right on the pool deck! Thank goodness we were only there for 2 nights! I picked this place bc it's cheap, close to the boardwalk and rides and we stayed here a few times when I was a kid. The place obviously hasn't been renovated since at least the 80's. Also, there is no elevator or luggage cart. We were on the 3rd floor and had to lug everything up and then down. The ONLY positives about this place is the front desk people were nice, our room had a balcony with chairs, which was really nice for my husband and I to sit on after the kids went to bed, the location and price. I'm sad to see a good childhood memory trashed.

When my husband and I got to the room, we found a dirty shirt on a chair. We asked to the staff to take away that shirt. They were so nice and picked it up. When we checked the room we realized that there were water stains in the ceiling, the microwave was dirty and the bath was awful. We were so excited to be there that we didn't care and we went out during the rest of the day. At night when we went to bed, I realized that the bed was wet and the sheets had stains. What a disgusting experience! Fortunately, we had our own sheets and we used it during that and the next night. If you are planning to go to Ocean City and you don't care about the room, this place is perfect for you because it's pretty close to the boardwalk. For me, the place where I stay is part of my vacation experience, so I'll never come back to this place again!

Staff was kind but the place is awe full. Rooms smell of cigarettes mold and mildew Phone isn’t even hooked up to complain. Found a weed pen and a devils symbol in the nightstand. Police were there the first day for what appeared to be some sort of stand off. Younger people at the pool blasting a radio most of the day and no one seemed to care Spend the extra money and go somewhere else. Have one night left and want to cancel and leave now.

This hotel is good for its price. Everytime there was a complaint or problem they never had a solution. Cops were there everyday, no hot water, dirty rooms, only good thing was the front desk niceness. I tried asking for the bigger boss and there was “none”.

They were very friendly and accommodating. When I asked if we could check in early, they allowed me to park my car there and walk around the boardwalk until the room was ready. The room was average, bed could have been comfier. Not bad overall.
