Positive Reviews

Fantastic central Ocean City location

Thanks to its position in the heart of Ocean City, the location of the motel was a highpoint for essentially every past guest. Along with the beach and boardwalk being a short five-minute stroll away, the property is also within comfortable walking distance of an array of restaurants, stores and attractions.

Excellent service from friendly staff

Nearly all previous visitors have posted rave reviews in relation to the staff members of the accommodation. It has been claimed that the service provided was exceptionally friendly and warm, and that the personnel would go out of their way to help.

In-room kitchenettes a bonus

Whilst the motel's rooms were not observed as perfect overall, former guests were usually pleasantly surprised by the included kitchenettes. With kitchenware, microwaves and refrigerators, the kitchenettes were thought of as well-equipped and convenient.

Negative Reviews

Air conditioning issues

A sizeable amount of past visitors have been critical about the in-room air conditioning units at the accommodation. Problems that have arisen from the air conditioning include bothersome noise, inefficient coverage and not even working at all.

Limited and tight on-site parking

Although there is reportedly one space allocated to each room, the motel's free on-site parking was still a source of negative feedback from previous guests. It has been noted that the parking lot is limited in terms of its size, with the spaces labelled as especially tight.

Weak Wi-Fi quality

The standard of the Wi-Fi was routinely lambasted by former visitors that used the amenity during their time at the accommodation. Along with the download speeds being regarded as slow, the range of the wireless Internet has been seen as severely lacking.
