My husband and I just wanted a quick, spontaneous overnight stay. There are no elevators and the steps are steep and narrow. My husband slipped and almost fell carrying our bags. The room was extemely tiny and was told the bed was queen-sized. The bed was only a full-size and was only a few inches from the floor. Felt like...

My friend and I stayed in one of the apts on the ground floor near an alley way. That alone should have been a clue but it had space and was cheap and they would allow my Chihuahua to come and stay there. I did not see it prior to coming dow, trusted my friend to handle it and after...

We spent Sept. 9th - 11th here. Somewhat quirky hotel, but it is 120 years old. Our room (11) was clean with a medium size refrigerator and a full bathroom. We were very pleasantly surprised to find our rate included the continental breakfast. I thought that was only available June through August. It was very nice with fresh fruit, muffins,...

Functional air conditioning, no bedbugs. Here end the commendations. And now for the rest. No I was not expecting the Waldorf Astoria, but I was certainly expecting more than what awaited me at the Blue Water Inn in Ocean City, NJ upon my arrival yesterday. DO NOT be taken in by the photographs (I was), which give the impression of...

My boyfriend and I were very excited to go to Ocean City. While the hotel is important, we were looking forward to the beach, boardwalk, and minigolf. What we needed was an affordable place to sleep, a shower with hot water, a toilet, and air conditioning, all hopefully within walking distance of the beach. This hotel met and even exceeded...

We took our kids for a week, best decision ever. The kids loved the pool, there is even a grill by the pool that guests can use to cook their food which was amazing when you have kids who get hungry often. The hotel was nice and quiet at night, clean, and super close to the boardwalk (2-3 blocks?). There...

This is a nice place to stay just for a day or 2. Right down the street is the boardwalk and there are also a lot of cool places to eat near it. The beds are comfortable and the workers are really nice. So, this is a nice place to stay for 1 or 2 nights if you don't have...

This is by far the absolute worst place my family and I have ever stayed. The Manager "Tom" was very rude. I was burned by the water in the shower because they fail to inform you that the water system is set up like an old house, if you are showering and someone in ANY OF THE OTHER ROOMS flushes...

The good: Close to the beach and the boardwalk Close to several restaurants Quiet Outside porch is fine for hanging out. Front desk folks were friendly. The bad: Very old and pretty dirty. They could really use a vacuum a little more. Bring a sleep mask. Only small blinds on the window so it was perfectly light in the room...

“If you are a couple with younger kids, room #33 has two full beds in two adjoining rooms. Only one room has the tv but both have ac. Our kids didnt mind because they had tablets to keep them busy for the short time before going to bed.”
