If your looking for luxury rooms and amenities you will not find that here. This is a basic no frills hotel that will suit your needs if you plan to spend most of your time outdoors. We stayed in the building in front close to coastal highway. The lobby was very inviting and beachy in its decor. The rooms are...

The Sea Bay may be the most centralized hotel in Ocean City. Located off 61st Street, It is walking distance to some of the main bars and restaurants in the city, such as Seacrets and Fagers Island. As for the room, it was a little worn but that's to be expected after the summer demand. The price was higher than...

Overall all it was a nice stay. I would definitely consider staying again; however, they should do some maintenance to their rooms. The water in the tub did not drain well when showering and the frame around the mirror was loose. The room had a slight odor when you walk in but nothing irritating. The sink and tub could use...

The front desk people are friendly. They have remembered us from year to year. Each time we visited our rooms have been extremely comfortable with two full size beds , microwave, refrigerator, table, and couch. Great value for the money. The outdoor pool is clean .

We had our annual date weekend in OC at the Sea Bay. We love this place because of its location and friendly staff. The new lobby looks GREAT! The new "text when your room is ready" service is great. The rooms in the "west building" (where we always stay) could still use a refresh. The mattress felt so mushy and...

The lobby has been remodeled. The greeter in the lobby was such a wonderful lady. This is our third time here. New owner has hired more staff. As always, housekeeping was on the ball. Front desk did a great job. I am handicapped now and we had a parking spot by the door on bay side of hotel.

The day we arrived I found that I had booked the wrong week and as we had just travelled from the United Kingdom via Philadelphia, we were a bit upset. The Manager Shelly organised the change and sorted out another problem with Booking.com without any fuss and even gave us a lagoon facing room. This was great service. The hotel...

My family, and I stayed the previous week and had stayed at this hotel the year prior. It is not oceanfront, but the West Building, the one side faces the bayside. I have no real issues with the hotel, or it's accommodations. The stay four nights, and get the fifth day free is a deal that should be utilized if...
