    Staff, especially front desk, was very friendly and helpful.

    Lobby needs to be lighter, reworked.

  • Older travelers

    Being right on the boardwalk

    The "low flow" shower head was horrible! We are trying to wash sand off ourselves. I spent twice as much time in the shower as I would have trying to get sand off and shampoo completely out of my hair

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Great location! Clean and comfortable room designs.

    Bathrooms are a bit small. Its a "green" eco-friendly hotel so the shower pressure is limited as well to conserve water. Great for the environment, no so great for rinsing conditioner out of long hair. In-house restaurant food quality is average at best.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The location and the view was amazing. Megan at the front desk was wonderful as well. A very well run establishment.

    The balconies weren't totally private as stated. Half walls.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The location was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They always had coffee available. Having a parking area was a huge plus.

    No shower curtain in the bathroom, not sure if that was a mistake or intentional but water would get all over the floor after a shower. The bartenders in the restaurant were slow which maybe was attributed to it being the beginning of the summer and not knowing the routine yet.

    Price and over all customer service.

    Check in was rediculous--only experience in all my years where it took an hour.

    It was very clean, staff was friendly and their prices were excellent.

    nothing everything was good

  • Family with children

    Super important: the hotel was clean. Rooms and public areas are nicely appointed with unique furnishings, giving it the feel of a luxury hotel at an affordable price. Location is great, too - right in the middle of Ocean City's Boardwalk, so it's easy to access shops, restaurants, and activities without having to get in the car. Plenty of parking in the hotel garage, which was well-lit at night. And best of all, every member of the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. My new favorite hotel!

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The view was awrsome.' The room was very nice and bathroom design was like a dream come true to me.. The staff was friendly and right on time when needed any assistance. Did not want to leave.

    The pool was cold.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Resturant & Bar only open on weekends

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The hotel staff is very pleasant very helpful. Our room was very clean, comfortable, with a great ocean view.

    Only thing was that when booking hotel on Booked.net there was no information that the hotel restraurant and bar was closed. This info should be added to hotel information.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The hotel is located right on the beach.. If you have an Ocean Front room as we did, it is perfect. The room was clean and comfortable. The day staff were friendly and helpful.

    The restaurant was barely adequate. The atmosphere was not what we expected and the food was not up to par. The night staff did not seem to be as well trained or responsive.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    I was given the wrong beds in our room and the staff responded fast and gave us another room with the right ones in it and we didn't lose anytime of our day at the beach. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

    The view from the room, the location to the board walk.

  • Couple
    9.6

    The staff was so nice! I accidentally booked my trip for a day earlier than expected, therefore I would be leaving a day before me friends. The lady at the desk was so understanding, helped me add on another day for a lower price, so I ended up paying about the same amount. She even let me choose whether I wanted the 7th or 3rd floor. The eco-friendly rooms were nice: a gallon/2.5 Min shower heads still had good pressure, towels in the bathroom when we arrived and florescent lights. The decor we nice, not too much or too bland. Such a good price, beautiful view.

    There was no hand soap in the bathroom, which was weird. I think they should switch out the facial wash for hand soap. Also housekeeping didn't come by to pick up our wet towels until the 3rd day of our stay. We kept having to go ask for some.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    The staff was very friendly, rooms were cleaned decently. We had water seeping in under the rug, our room was changed with no trouble at all.

    Some difficulty communicating with the maid, she did not understand English.
