Positive Reviews

Excellent location

The location of this motel is  perhaps one of its most frequently noted highlights. Guests have loved being so close to the beach as well as the shops and dining spots along the boardwalk.

Clean and spacious rooms

Feedback for the rooms at this Ocean City motel is not 100% positive but the majority of past guests have felt reasonably comfortable here. Reviews suggest that you will find the accommodation is clean and fairly spacious.

Budget-friendly option

Guests note that the rates here are reasonable. Luxuries are not exactly around every corner and there are limitations such as the lack of a lifeguard. However, the cost of a stay in a clean room near plenty of amenities is budget-friendly.

Negative Reviews

Some limitations to rooms

Although the rooms are clean and spacious, guests do note some downsides to the accommodation too. The most frequent comment is that the decor and furnishings are dated but guests have also reported that the beds are fairly uncomfortable and that the power outlets are limited in number.

Surroundings can be noisy

Given its location near the boardwalk, it will probably come as little surprise to hear that guests find the surroundings noisy. Rooms facing 7th Street are said to be worst affected, so light sleepers may want to request that they are not allocated one of those particular rooms. Poolside rooms are quieter.

Infrequent issues

Beyond noise and a dated appearance in the rooms, there really aren't too many complaints about this motel. Guests have occasionally mentioned the lack of an elevator and others mention that they found the property a little crowded, but these are infrequent concerns.
