We were looking for an inexpensive quick getaway to Ocean City. This location was the most reasonable. Yes, some of the reviews scared me. However, it is a "beach motel". The location was very good, close to the boardwalk, steps from beach. Is the motel older and run-down? Yes, but the beds and bathroom were exceptionally clean. The staff was... More

For almost $300 a night (yes, it is peak season), this place is a joke and a half. My first experience with Ocean City, and walking into this room, if I had the money and could have found a vacancy, I would run - not walk away from this place. Met some locals and they said the rooms go for... More

The initial room they tried to rent us had water damage which stained the walls, a chair and carpet. The smell was awful. They mixed some type of lemon scented clearer to cover it up but it just made it worse. They did upgrade us to an ocean front room which at least was not nauseating. A mirror was missing... More

Since this was a last-minute book. We really weren't sure what to expect from this little Motel. We were pleasantly surprised. Yes it's older, yes it's outdated , yes it needs some paint, it's not a 5 star hotel. But the room was clean presentable we had a great view right on the beach last minute. For the price you...

Stayed here for the holiday weekend. When I first stumbled across this motel, I was a little leary to book after reading some older reviews. Decided to give it a go. We stayed in a side view room, second floor, having view of the ocean. The room was very basic, but I must say clean. There were no stains on... More

I've stayed at Seabonay at least 10x in the last 10 years. I go to the beach to be at the beach, not to sit in the room and scrutinize every fault.

Location is fantastic. Great boardwalk and beach access. Front office had a horrible smell. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help us with our bags.

If you are looking for 5 stars you should stay at another property. This is a bare, and I mean bare minimum property. All the negative reviews are true! With that said, if you are looking for something close to the beach (yards from the water) and if you are looking for something close to the boardwalk - look the... More
