Positive Reviews

Great Ocean City location

Nearly every previous guest that has stayed at the Admiral Hotel considered the central location to be a high point of the accommodation. As well as being right next to the boardwalk and beach, the hotel is also in close proximity to a variety of restaurants, shops and attractions such as Ripley's Believe It or Not and Trimper's Rides.

Pleasant staff

The majority of former visitors to the hotel had complimentary things to say about the staff. The customer service is often described as being friendly and helpful.

Free parking is a plus

Although the parking at the Admiral Hotel is supposedly limited in terms of spaces available, this aspect of the accommodation is generally seen as a positive.

Negative Reviews

Dated and worn down rooms

The rooms at the Admiral Hotel have received poor reviews from most former visitors. This is partly down to the reportedly outdated and rundown state of the rooms, with the décor and amenities apparently showing serious signs of wear and tear.

Hygiene issues

A large amount of issues with hygiene have been mentioned by those that have previously stayed at the hotel. Worryingly regular complaints include bedbugs, mold in the bathrooms, stained carpets and general dirt. The swimming pool area has also received complaints in terms of substandard cleanliness.

No elevator a problem

A number of past guests have had grievances about the Admiral Hotel and its lack of certain facilities. In particular, the fact the hotel does not have an elevator has caused obvious problems for many of those staying on the higher floors of the accommodation.
