The Lankford may be the oldest hotel in Ocean City Md. but it is well taken care of. The owners and staff are friendly and accommodating. We have stayed here quite a few times and never had any issues. Mary and her husband are very attentive to your needs. They have a very well stocked Continental breakfast. There's no elevators just stairs which is no problem for us. If you're looking for a nice place to stay in Ocean City I recommend The Lankford.

We LOVED our stay at the Langford. The staff was incredibly friendly, morning coffe was delicious. Our side view one double bedroom was small but cute, the bathroom was clean. Plenty of towels were provided. It’s a quirky hotel with a ton of charm. The view of the beach from the porch was perfect and we enjoyed being on the boardwalk. We will be back!

This was our third trip and will sadly be our last. We stayed in a room with twin beds, next to a wonderful second floor shared balcony. Used to be a favorite place to relax, read and people watch. It has pretty much become a smokers paradise. Understand, we knew going in that people smoke out there, we’ve been here before. But this time it was constant. So disappointing. The lower level porch was the same. Also, the linens on our beds were threadbare. On the plus side, we feel so safe as they lock the doors late night. They serve a super continental breakfast. And the owner/operator could NOT be nicer. They recently repaved the parking lot. Looks great! But the smoking is a deal breaker for my husband☹️

We stayed in the Martin for 5 nights. There was plenty of room for 5 adults and the kitchen/living room situation was very spacious and comfortable. Having two bathrooms was a wonderful bonus. The place is older but our room was very clean, the beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed for our stay. The stairs are a challenge but helped us work off the Thrashers fries that we were eating everyday! The only issue was that the showers tended to change water temperature, but it was a minor inconvenience. We are already planning our trip for next summer and will probably stay in the same apartment. You just can't beat the location, the friendly owners, large comfortable rooms and the beautiful, spacious front porch. Although the hotel is located directly on the boardwalk, we had no issues with noise, lights or unruly crowds. The Lankford is a gem and I'm so glad we found out about it.

While outside appearances made my wife and I to pause, looking from their parking lot, inside quickly changed our mind. The lobby is beautifully done with period pieces of the hotel's history. While the stairs can be annoying after a long day spent along the boardwalk, the comfortable atmosphere of the room is quickly relaxing, especially with an open window and the sound of seagulls and surf floating into the room. I really can't think of anything negative to say about the place and plan on visiting again in the future, and with a few larger suite rooms available it could be a fun family adventure as well. The Lankford Hotel is well worth the stay.

Beautiful hotel, full of character, friendly staff, and clean. For almost 100 years old, it is well maintained. Right on the boardwalk and very family friendly. We stayed ocean front with a balcony but many other options for all budgets. Avoid the big corporations and stay here! Highly recommend!

I loved this family-run hotel, a bit older but perfect location and everything I needed. I stayed in the "Snipe" room with a full kitchenette and small balcony. The hotel is right on the boardwalk with direct beach access. They have a beautiful porch with rocking chairs for boardwalk people-watching or viewing the sunrise over the ocean. Even though the week was crowded with kids partying, the hotel was quiet and filled with families. The staff is very friendly and this will be my go-to hotel for Ocean City!

Our family has stayed at the Lankford for longer that I can remember. The family friendly atmosphere is what keeps us coming back. The hotel is always clean and it's location is prime! The hotel has that old Ocean City vibe which makes you want to kick back and relax. As long as this hotel is up and running, we will be coming back. Highly recommend.

We booked this spot last minute for a holiday weekend not expecting much since it was one of the last places left with any rooms. We were pleasantly surprised and how nice it was for an older place. Check in was a breeze and everyone was vice nice. The room was very clean and quite, it over looked the ocean and in the morning they had a continental breakfast downstairs. The rockling chairs on the porch were nice at night to just sit and relax. Over all a great spot.

We stayed at the Lankford at a whim after other hotel plans fell through. We were greeted with spectacular service which continued throughout our stay. They even let us take a shower in the hotel after check-out so we could extend our time on the beach. We also loved the location right on the beach and the easy access to all the fun on the boardwalk. The rooms were clean, cool, and cozy with amazing views to the water. We also loved the breakfast and wonderful staff. This hotel made our stay at Ocean City a truly memorable one. Love this place and HIGHLY Recommend!
