    excellent service

    Our stay was very pleasant. Staff very friendly, prompt service when our fire alarm was low on battery and started beeping. Trash cans had plastic bags. Very clean rooms and bathrooms.

    Great pool and price!

    Love this hotel. A great pool and right on the beach for a decent price. The coconuts bar is a little overpriced, but isn’t that everywhere in ocean city? I keep coming back to this hotel every year.

    Nice stay

    Nice place to stay although a bit dated. AC could have been a bit better but also dated. Rooms need a fresh look.

    just ok

    The location of this hotel was great, and the bar and restaurant was so convenient. The hotel definitely needs updating and a deep clean! The room and the entire hallway stunk of marijuana and there was mold on the walls.

    Good stay for a couple of days!

    My daughter and I stayed for a couple of days. Good location. The beach was great! The pool was great! The room was ample in size and amenities but dated.

    Good location as it’s on the beach with and exclusive feel. The property has several building, some with ocean views and balconies. I really like that the location is away from The boardwalk (a little more than a mile) as it has a more relaxing feel. The vibe is great as well with a restaurant Coconuts on the premises with outdoor dining. It has good food and for those who drink, has beach service. Very cool. If up for other dining experiences, a series of restaurants are nearby. Live music is an added plus for me. The staff was great all around. From the front desk to the housekeeping to the dining servers, thumbs up. The rooms were clean and had many towels. The pool area was large enough to accommodate the guest. The one elevator in our building can be a bit slow. Many people chose to just take the stairs. The hitel should consider having a microwaves, we did have a fridge though. The rooms we not very modern, but was good enough. The wifi on our 5th floor was weak at best. Perhaps a wireless hotspot will be needed on this trip. Or maybe just cell service for phones. In short, it’s a great place for a getaway. I would definitely return for another visit. And I will remember to bring my hotspot.

    Hotel very outdated. They don’t give you towels for the pool. Most staff not very friendly. Pool was nice and great location on the beach.

    Definitely not a 5 star hotel. More like a college student hotel. Wasn’t horrible but definitely not what we are used to.
