Stayed there in September 2015. Had stayed several other places in Ocean City, but this was our first visit here. Since we have acquired a small dog, we needed pet friendly accommodations. I found this place online. We were there for 5 days. Parking garage is tight but doable. Hotel is older but was clean and the price was affordable....

It's a very cozy hotel that allows dogs. Staff was very friendly and rooms are clean. I booked this at the last minute and still got a great rate. The dog area cold be a little larger but still extremely nice and a great value

Thank you for your review. Cleanliness is key for us and we are glad that you had such a nice time with us. Our rates throughout the year are very competitive and our renovations further set us apart from other pet friendly properties in town, we are glad you found us and our special rate! See you next time!

Stayed for their opening weekend and the staff was very helpful. This was our first time staying here because of our puppy and the rooms were very nice for both us and our puppy. We are going to go back when we visit OCMD with our puppy.

We have been staying at this motel for the past 15yrs. because you can bring a dog. We stayed in September on 2016-this is usually when we stay. There was some type of mold or dirt on the ceiling over the beds, on the extra rack to put clothes on. The vent in the bathroom was filthy, trash under the...

I have been bringing my family here for years and they treat us like family. My dog Elmer loves it here and does not like to stay anywhere else! The rates are great, the rooms clean and really close to the beach with no streets to cross. We recently stayed for 10 days (which we try to do at least...

The room was nice and seems they do a lot of renovation in the room. It just the outside look old but the room very decent and I like it. I will come back here whenever I can. It just that parking spot not very big and it's walking distance to the ocean.

I was really surprised how clean and neat the room was for being so dog-friendly . We went off season and thought we got a good value for the our money. We really appreciated that we could bring our 2 dogs and not be overcharged for them. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The beach was just a few steps...

This was our first visit to this motel. Really wanted to stay at Castle in the Sand but their room descriptions are very confusing and we didn't want to be in an annex somewhere. Our room on the 3rd floor (#311) was fresh and clean upon our arrival. We can't say enough about our housekeeper, Brenda, who worked extremely hard...

My family has been visiting here annually for 10+ years. It was one of the first dog-friendly hotels in OC, and it is still very dog friendly. The hotel has always been a bit dated. The rooms are not the best maintained. (But, there have been upgrades recently.) Neither is the hotel all that quiet. You get sounds from other...
