Everyone is super friendly and helpful. Great location. Convenient to both the hustle of Ocean City and the peacefulness of Assateague. FSK is sadly...

First time staying somewhere other then right on the boardwalk and will most definitely stay here again. We got here before check in time and our room was not ready yet. But the front desk staff gave us a key to the indoor pool and locker room while we waited for our room. This worked out wonderful for the kids!...

Thank your for writing such a nice review. The shuttle is a great option for our guests for the quick 1 mile trip to the beach and boardwalk. We are dedicated to updating our property including our guest rooms. It is a work in progress and always will be! The cottages are rented weekly and sell out fast for the...

This place was GREAT. ...Although the weather was not the best, my daughter had a BLAST using the indoor swimming pool. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We will surely be back to the resort before the summer is over!

I stayed in the New York building. The room was very clean, the sheets still crisp not worn, the housekeeping staff very friendly and the room safe used a 4 didgit code that you picked. The RT50 diner was very good and reasonably priced. The security was excellent. I had no problem letting my 6 year old out tf the...

Every time I've visited Ocean City I stayed at the Francis Scott Key family resort. It's a great hotel with a free shuttle to the beach, an outdoor pool, indoor pool, free mini golf, and comfortable tempurpedic (sp?) mattresses! There's an outlet mall right across the street and mini golf and go carts down the road. It's such a convenient...

Looking for a place where the kids will be entertained & you can relax? This is it! ids loved both pools. We liked the complimentary shuttle to the beach. Kids loved the towel animals left on the bed after maid service. They also liked the miniature golf next to the outdoor pool. My kudos are 10, 9, & 9.
