Since we’ve stayed at the sister motel, we were sent an email special for the Ocean Breeze and made it our last hurrah for summer. This is a no frills kind of place (small room, few amenities, 2 blocks back from the boardwalk and beach), but like the title, if you’re simply looking for a place to sleep and clean up, it does the job. We’re getting older and are not always up to the super simple beach room arrangement anymore, but that’s on us not the motel. The price is tough to beat for a last-minute, 3 night beach stay.
It was in a good location, close to the beach. The pool was nice also. However, there was no “continental breakfast” as indicated, only coffee. This hotel seems to be run by college students who don’t seem to care. To get the deposit back on our beach tags, we had to wait well over 30 minutes in the lobby. Throughout our staff, we also saw people waiting for an attendant at the front desk. Again, good location, just poorly run staff. Shame.
The hotel was nice but not recommended for older people as the stairs are just too much, especially with luggage and coolers, we stayed in a junior suite deluxe, all on the 3rd floor and it was rough for the two over 60 to do the stairs. For the price, it was very clean and plenty of room for our family. We enjoyed the porch, but were disappointed in the fact that there was no breakfast any of the days we were there and no one had told us at check in there wouldn’t be any due to the virus . The pool was very small but very clean and it was refreshing to go in. Thankfully it wasn’t ever really crowded and when others did go in they kept their distance. No one came in to clean any of the days we were there. It was nice for the weekend but would not recommend for any longer.
We try to stay at the Ocean Breeze each summer for our beach trip. The facility is older, and you have to carry your suitcases up one or two flights of stairs, but we have found the rooms to be clean and the staff to be friendly and helpful. They provide complimentary beach tags with a deposit, allow you to use their shower and changing room if you arrive early or stay late, and offer a complimentary light breakfast in the morning. It is within 2 1/2 blocks of the boardwalk. The value we get for our money makes this our first choice each time we stay in Ocean City.
This was such a great place for just showering and sleeping for a night. Also, right between walkable restaurants and the boardwalk/beach. Had typical complimentary breakfast with cereal, bagels and coffee, however it was free. It was nice that each floor, (no elevator) had its own pool shower in the hallway. The room was small with it's own bathroom, however the outlet in the bathroom did not work and only the top outlet worked in the room. Overall, I would come back here.
