We went for our 5th anniversary, for the weekend. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were very nice, spacious and clean. The only thing we would change is next time we will request being put in a room, higher up than the 1st floor. We would definately stat here again and would recommend this hotel to others.

We had a great time at your hotel. The room and view were fantastic! We did not want for anything! We also enjoyed your indoor pool. My son enjoyed the Grotto pizza. We look forward to our next time at your hotel.

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.”
