This affordable motel is nice. Rooms are good sized and it is nice being so close to the beach. The rooms were clean. We would stay again and the price was just right. The cafe downstairs is great bonus too!

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in Room 510. Entry door area and kitchen are narrow. No divider in room. It's great for 2 people, not a family. It needs a smaller frying pan that fits stove coil.

The service was fast and everyone was very nice...the pool was super clean and had a separate area to socialize...the room was large and had a divider for privacy which came in handy with three children. Everyone loved the balcony... and we... More

Spend the extra $11+ and ask for the plus room. Currently they are on 4th & 5th floors and have been renovated. Clean beds, rugs, kitchen & bathrooms. Excellent location. Friendly staff. Pleasantly surprised that it wasn't too expensive. Awesome free vouchers when you book room through OCHotels! Would definitely stay here again.

Arrived 8/19-8/25 stayed in room 104, family of 5. Great room, the best part about an efficiency is you can bring your own coffee, store your beer or sangria in the frig. Cook and reheat food, buy cold cuts and break or whatever at the Food lion on rt.50, make sandwiches before hitting the beaches. Saves the parents money, no... More

I would give it 5 stars if it was cleaner. There is sand and hair left in every corner. Stains on chairs, couch, and bed sheets. Shower was clean though I think it was brand new.

This was our first stay in Ocean City, MD and stayed at this hotel because it was a referral from a friend. My family arrived 2hrs early for check in and was allowed to park on the property and given access to the pool and changing rooms until the room was ready. Which they nicely called my cell at 3pm...
