It was a great update to the commander this past Spring. Our room was clean and newly furnished with a beachy theme. We loved the decor and views from the family friendly hotel! We will definitely be back to visit soon!

I enjoyed my stay.The room was nice and clean.I love the outside pool area they had a drink and food bar there.The staff was nice.The only come I have would be that the cost for one night was costly and the indoor pool was small and appeared to be unclean.Other wise we enjoyed our stay.

Hotel was nice. Not a luxury hotel but the remodel is nice. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are average size, one person at a time. Wifi was fine for us. Location is good for beach and restaurants. Hotel was clean but not spotless which is really hard with all the sandy people running in and out. Pool was ok. You definitely...

Reviewed 16 August 2016

The hotel was updated with a modern flair. Rooms were spacious and had tremendous counter space in the front rooms. Only two draw backs were the parking and no seating available iinside the King size bedrooms. If you wanted to sit, you either had to sit on the bed or go out onto the balcony.

As you set sail for one of Ocean City’s finest oceanfront hotels, the vacation you deserve awaits you!

Rediscover the hotel where fun and relaxation have been the standard for generations. Here you can look forward to days spent on the guarded beach. 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.

“The rooms before the renovation were much nicer and larger. I miss the removed large refrigerators. The mini fridge is tacky for such a large hotel since there's plenty of kitchen space. Poor decisions were made with the 2016 fall renovation.”
