We come to Ocean City once or twice a year to visit family and have stayed at several hotels both on the island and in Somers Point. Watson's was our favorite spot so far (I won't mention the other places we have stayed, although you can see most of them in my previous Ocean City reviews).
Here is what we liked about it:
-Reasonable off-season rates (unfortunately for us, their summer rates are more than what we try to pay when we visit)
-HUGE suite. We walked into our room and my mouth dropped open in surprise. The kitchen area was a little tight but still bigger than what you get in most hotels. There was a dining area with a table that could easily have sat 8 people, plus a living room, bedroom, and balcony that in our case overlooked the indoor pool
-Two fold-out couches in the living area (one twin, one double). We're a family of four so each kid got their own sofa bed, and my husband and I had privacy in our bedroom. It was great! The room could comfortably sleep a family of five, or potentially more if some of the people were sleeping in pack-n-plays, sleeping bags, etc.
-Small but nice indoor pool and hot tub
-Great location, just a block off the boardwalk and a very easy walk to many shops and restaurants
-Housekeeping service included (something you don't always get in these condo rental situations)
-Clean, comfortable bed, decent sheets/towels
There were a few things that were less than ideal:
-Furniture/decor was outdated. It felt like it was designed in the 90s and hasn't really been updated since then
-Room had some wear and tear: a ripped banner decorating the balcony, a couple of slats falling off the venetian blinds, a spot of mildew near the shower curtain rod
All in all, though, the issues were minor. It would be a problem at a 5 star resort, but at this price point I'll accept the few flaws. We will definitely consider Watson's again the next time we return in the off-season.
