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.

Thank you for your awesome review. We are so lucky to have such incredible families that visit with us and for many the FSK has become their home away from home.

We really enjoy staying at the Frances Scott Key! Wish we had tried to stay here when my kids were small. Even as adults they enjoy all the amenities--golf, pool (indoor and out), sprayground, shuttle... We especially like the quiet hours after 11pm. It's so nice to have a great laundry facility on site, and there are always plenty of...

The stay was great. The indoor pool is very great, but the hot air inside needs to be vented outdoors. The green on the put golf needs to be replaced. All the help working here is very nice and friendly.

We are so happy the kids loved the pirate spray ground. We are replacing not only the mini golf but the entire outdoor pool and bar area for 2015. The indoor pool has an open roof and sliding door for the summer time. Thank you for your nice comments! Hope to see you all again soon! Sincerely Annemarie Dickerson Owner
