Before the starting gun

A travel blog entry by forwardandback

10'x15'... the past 5 years, 2 bedrooms and 4 floors of our home is now crammed into a one cinder-block cell, the mail has been stopped (doubt I'll miss it) and tenants who will be kindly paying our mortgage for the next 12months are now moved in and we're officially "homeless".
Bethany Beach is where we'll be calling home for the next few weeks, until we jump out on the road at the end of July.

I could think of worse places to lay-low for awhile.

Staying Warm on a Rainy Winter Day

It's a rainy, cold winter day. We decide to chill out at brother Mark’s house. Satiated with lots of cold beer, Mark provides me with his favorite "Kenny Chesney" hat and guitar. I entertain... mostly myself. ...

Life's a Beach - Especially in Winter

The next day, we take Woody on a field trip to the Dogfish Head Brewery located in Milton, DE where my brother lives. Heading into Rehoboth, we find our favorite "Happy Hour" restaurant “Claws” is closed for the season. So we head over to its sister restaurant “Fins”. We dive into a bountiful selection of fresh Oysters on the half shell. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Princess Bayside Beach Hotel Ocean City

    Unhappy with this hotel


    The Princess Bayside is known is Ocean City as being one of the higher end hotels in the beach town. However, after my stay in August I realized that this hotel can no longer be recognized as a high-end hotel, as it is advertised. Firstly, there was no sheet on the beds that covered the mattress. Therefore,when I was sleeping during the night and I would roll over, the sheet that was supposed to be fitting the mattress was just a plain sheet so when I moved around when I awoke in the morning, half of my body was laying ontop of a dirty mattress. That is gross! A high end hotel should have sheets that fit the mattress. When I spoke to the management about this problem, one particular manager laughed at me telling me that my complaint was absurd! Another issue with the hotel was all of the vending machines were broken. Not only could I not find a cold drink anywhere in the hotel but it took my money as well. Another problem with this hotel was a shortage of towels. The maid only left me and my roomate with two shower towels and two hand towels. When I called to request more, the towels never arrived at my room and I had to walk all the way down to the front desk, which happened to be in the other building, just to get my towels. I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone looking for a high-end hotel.

    *Overpriced*Don't Stay Here You Will Not Believe


    Where do I start! I always thought the Princess Royale hotels were nice. I was very wrong. My husband and I took our 2 sons there for the weekend. We made our reservations on the phone for what we thought was a 1 bedroom (not) It was nothing more than a standard room with 2 double beds. The room was dirty. There was mold in the bathroom, sheets were dirty they were brown looking, the patio door was broke it would not lock. There was no clock in the room. No ice in the vending machines, and the soda machines were out of order. This is not a family place. The rooftop pool is X-rated not fit for kids. To many young drunk people pulling fire alarms having to leave your room in the middle of the night. Staff needs to be better trained. Be more honest about the rooms. Think twice before you stay here

    Stay Away!!!!


    PLEASE read this and PLEASE save yourselves! Stay away from this insult to the hospitality industry.

    Princess staff invade guest privacy


    The Princess Bayside Resort Hotel takes advantage of it's young guests. Myself, being seventeen, was staying with two other eighteen year old girls and two other seventeen year old girls. All we wanted was to relax on the beach for a few days after graduation. Well, on the second to last day of our stay we were woken up at ten in the morning by the Head of House keeping, insisting that she be let in the room. /since we did not get there fast enough for her taste she opened the door herself. Some of us were not decent yet, but that did not seem to matter. She demanded to know if we had any alcohol. When we said we did not, she searched the room!!!!! Then she told us to clean up our room because our mess was "not acceptable." (Well, yeah if you refuse to take out trash or vacuum the sandy carpet!!!) Then to my horror, she brought us trash bags and told us to empty out own trash cans!!!!

    Nice Hotel But Construction Very NOISY


    Had a very nice stay at the Princess Bayside. The only problem was the construction thats going on next door to the hotel was VERY noisy and annoying. The hotel didn't notify guests about the construction upon checking in and didnt make it easy for me to switch rooms. We had to move our room when we arrived because of the noise. Please be mindful of that when selecting a room. My group size was 2 adults and 3 kids so it was a nice size room. The kitchen was wonderful and the view of the bay from the balcony was great.

    Great place to stay


    My daughter and I stayed here last summer for a week - everything was awsome. It was in a perfect location (one block from ocean) and great restaurants located very close. The pool was very nice (roof top). Staff was great, friendly, helpful and polite. A very clean and fun place to stay!!

    I will defiently be back this year!!

    Depressing and expensive stay


    My room was cheaply furnished--bedspreads seemingly made of plastic, sheets that, while clean, had an odd odor--and every other aspect of this hotel was similarly tawdry. (Towels were wired?? in case they were stolen, toilet paper was thin, etc.). Moreover, I was either hot or cold all night. The heating system seemed primitive. The hotel pool was laughably small. Finally, the front-desk staff was all but abrupt with me. I'd hoped for a "getaway" escape weekend--comfortable, but not fancy. This was far worse than the cheapest "budget" hotel I've visited; depressing and unpleasant. Strongly recommend that you look elsewhere.
