Very nice place to stay! The staff up front was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Captain's suite and the room setup was perfect. Hotel could use a little more parking. We would definitely stay here again!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 24 October 2016

After our reservation was cancelled for another hotel in Ocean City we were fortunate enough to get a room here for the same price. We were expecting to be in a suite overlooking the outdoor pool but were pleasantly surprised to see we received a suite facing the ocean and we could quite literally walk out our back door onto...

Weather was atrocious but still had a comfortable stay. The room was perfect with all we needed in the kitchenette. The only complaint was the sofa bed. Very uncomfortable. But the beds were wonderful. Restaurant and indoor pool was excellent.

I previously sent an email about a serious fall that I witnessed outside of the pool. You need rubber mats the entire distance from the pool door and the restroom nearby. This is a serious issue, as I saw one young boy fall and hit his head very hard, and a young woman, with a pizza in hand, almost do...

A terrific place to stay. I have found no faults with The Commander Hotel all the times I have stayed there. The re-modeled lobby is beautiful and a lot brighter. All the people working there are really friendly and willing to help with any problems. I would recommend this hotel for your stay at Ocean City.

Beautiful, sparkling clean room, friendly, helpful staff, great food in Grotto Pizza and Fractured Prune Donuts- and awesome views of this great town. Walking distance for everything from carnival foods like funnel cakes and thrashers fries to gourmet, chef prepared dinners at Adolphos on the Ocean. Recommend this Hotel for singles and families alike.

I really liked The Commander Hotel. The room was nice and clean except for the sofa bed. We opened the sofa bed to sleep on and it was full of sand. The ocean view from the room was amazing. The staff were great and accommodating. They had great recommendations of where to eat when we wanted off the Boardwalk. The...

At lunch enjoy a cold drink and bar fare at our pool side bar while soaking up the sun rays, or simply relax in the cool atmosphere of our indoor pool. In the late afternoon, you might find yourself on the private balcony of your oceanfront suite, watching the fishing yachts returning home after a day of fighting the white or blue marlin. This is a great time to plan your evening dining menu with the great variety of culinary delights Ocean City has to offer. If time or weather are an issue, simply make your way to the family friendly onsite Grottos Pizza and see for yourself why they are the first name in pizza here on the shore.
