Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn & Suites Beachfront Ocean City
Enjoyed Beachfront Quality INN for the most part
We enjoyed most aspects of this Beachfront Quality Inn although some degree of sprucing it up would be in order to improve my opinion about it even more. The hotel staff were pleasant and professional as were all employees we encountered. There is construction of the new Hilton going on at this time right next door which made for some weekday noise. The restaurant was open for breakfast until 1 pm and was quite good, the view from the restaurant will be the new Hilton. The indoor pool area/hot tub area really needs to be cleaned up better as tiles are falling off the hot tub and there would be a much better impression if the entire area were scrubbed clean and repainted, the indoor pool should be drained, cleaned and refilled-the water was murky. We had an oceanfront room after realizing that the ocean view room would face the Hilton in construction and switched to avoid a poor view and noise. The oceanfront room was nice, pastel colors, efficiency, balcony and the view was really pretty. Beds were comfortable, room was clean-TV worked well, housekeeping does a great job! Outdoor pools were decent. I just think some more attention to the indoor pool area to revamp it would be needed at this time as it is a little neglected and dingy and could easily be improved.
This will be our sixth year in this hotel and as a matter of fact our sixth year in the exact same room. There are certain updates the hotel could use (ie-high speed internet) but all in all it's a great hotel and the staff is wonderdul. With all the people they see each year they recognize our face and that feels wonderful.
Great place to stay
We love this hotel and Ocean City. This will be our 4th year staying at Quality Inn. Last summer my brother's family and my wife's sister's family came with us, we all had a great time. All 15 of us are going back in July. The hotel is setup fine, the parking, pools, store, and location are great. If you have never been to Ocean City before bring your boogie boards, the waves are awsome. The boardwalk is the best in the world.
It was really nice!
Despite what some of the reviews said- this hotel is really nice! It is a little worn, but very clean and best of all-no BUGS!!!! The staff was very nice, location to the beach was great- the atrium is very nice and it is really kid friendly with the playground, pools, and all of the parrots in the cages which made it seem so islandish! The restaurant and bar are really cute with great prices and great frozen drinks!! Definately would stay here again!!! The floors in the rooms were pretty dirty, but what can you expect at a beach/sandy hotel?!?!
Very nice hotel
I stayed there with 3 friends in August 2003. The rooms are very nice and clean. They are spacious with a kitchenete, dishwasher, full size fridge, pots, pans, coffee maker, etc. The hotel was very quiet and is walking distance from the beach. I will definately stay there again.
A Total Waste !!!!
Without a doubt. the single worst hotel experience I have ever had !
After driving 8+ hrs from Ohio, we were looking forward to checking in and just releaxing. What a shock ! Upon opening the door, the first words out of my friends mouth were "did you pack any Lysol". The room smelled musty, and just looked old and worn. The screen door to the sliding glass doors was just sitting on the balcony, the shower curtain had mold on it, and the kitchen area was dirty, old and disgusting! The sleeper sofa was so badly stained, we threw a sheet over it before we were willing to sit on it! The TV made a horrible buzzing noise, like it was ready to POP at any moment ! The hotels in town were all booked due to major event, or we would have just turned and left on the spot.
For the money paid, I expected much much more ! I would NEVER stay there again !
A pleasant surprise
I was happy with my stay here. While not a resort or extraordinarily nice place, it was comparable to older 2-3 star properties I've stayed at in places like Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Last year I spent over 30 nights in hotels ranging from inexpensive roadside motels to 4 star beachfront resorts, so I have a feel for what to expect from a hotel.
At check-in I met the first of the mostly friendly staff. Staff knew who I was if not my name, I was asked if problems I had were addressed, the hostess in the restaurant even remembered I liked tea to drink on my 2nd visit. All in all very "down home" feeling.
Hotel was a typical beachfront establishment, able to get away with some things due to its location. My direct oceanfront room was spacious with 2 queen beds, a full sleeper sofa, 27" TV with VCR (but no HBO), a small but fully equipped kitchen, and a huge bathroom with a 2-person whirlpool in addition to a separate shower stall. Decor was an 80's celebration of pastel colors, a white vinyl dinette set and blond woods. While generally clean, the sheets on one bed were stained and torn, a couple of light bulbs were burnt out, but all was replaced the next day after a comment to the front desk. Other then some wear and tear to be expected in an older room, overall it was very nice more than acceptable. Peaking into a couple of other rooms on the way to the covered parking garage, it seemed that some rooms were more recently renovated than mine.
The indoor pool area was a little cool during my stay, but the pool was warm and clean, towels were readily available, a tanning bed was available for free, the sauna and waterfall hot-tub where both quite nice. The gym consisted of 2 lifesteps, a reclined bike and a treadmill; there was no resistance/weight equipment. The two outdoor pools were closed for the season but looked a little on the small side.
Thankfully the oceanfront pool was off to the side of the hotel so the oceanfront rooms would be spared much of the early morning noise of kids playing.
I had breakfast in the restaurant twice; I was the only one in the room so service was great. The side view of the ocean was wonderful; the food was diner quality, servings huge and the prices reasonable particularly for a hotel restaurant.
Other than the stained sheets and one less than pleasant staff member, my experience was completely consistent with that of a 2-1/2 to 3 star experience, although it is certainly not typical of say a suburban Hilton or Marriott sharing the same star rating.
Ocean City has always worried me as I've seen a number of truly horrible hotels I would never stay at on day trips to the beach. The quality inn beachfront was a nice surprise, although I doubt I would pay the peak season rates during the summer. Frankly, I can fly to Florida in the summer and stay in a nice town like Fort Lauderdale for about the same amount of money. However, for this off peak stay I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this place to friends (with some qualifiers) Do be cautious when booking, the quality inn OCEANFRONT looked truly nightmarish with it's overgrown and completely unkempt "Tropical Atrium" with a moldy ceiling tiles looking like they were about to plunge into the pool below. Also, having looked at the public areas of the 2 comfort inns on the boardwalk I could not seem myself booking either.
We loved this hotel!!!!
I brought my teenage daughter and a friend of hers here last summer for a week. We loved this hotel. We had a 1 br suite on the 6th floor. It was very clean when we arrived and it was cleaned everyday. The location was great. It was quiet, but a nice walk to the boardwalk, and then we took the trolley from there. The beach was clean, and we enjoyed the pools and whirlpool. The sofa bed was comfortable and the view was fantastic! Hotel staff was friendly. The parking was fine. The room was a bit pricey, but it was well worth it. I hope this review helps some people. I am looking into Myrtle Beach this year, and I am very confused. I don't think you will be disappointed in this hotel. I hope to go back again.
We will not be returning to Ocean City
We made reservations at the Quality Inn Beachfront for 3 nights- it was pretty expensive, but decided to splurge. We were so disappointed with the hotel and Ocean City in general. Very crowded and over priced. After a 4 hour drive we had to stay Sunday night, but refused to stay the next two nights. We left and went back to NJ. The hotel is outdated and our room was dirty and very smelly. The prices they charge are ridiculous. I have spent much less in Florida! That was our first and our last trip to Ocean City.
Absolute best in Ocean City !
Love this place!!! Stayed for my honeymoon and returned there 4 times after. Very clean hotel inside and out!!! great staff, great variety of rooms. Right across the street from Jolly rogers amusment park. Indoor pool and two outdoor. And a deli/Liquor store right next door. If you want your vacation to be a great one book this hotel the prices are reasonable.

... Paraguayan Palo Santo wood, was particularly fascinating. We didn't try this one at the pub but are bringing a few back because after reading that story, we just had to.
Then we enjoyed a nice stroll around town, snapping a few pics, and caught the bus back to the campground.
See you all soon!
... Seashore State Park grounds at the marina, Hammerheads. We've never heard of a state park that had it's own dockside cafe and tiki bar. It was wonderful! We felt like we were in Key West. Enjoyed some crab balls (looked like hush puppies with crab meat inside) and blackened mahi-mahi tacos, all washed down with delish margaritas. Yummm!
... extend our stay here one more day. Maggie booked it and then we took the puppy over the bridge to the north beach for a nice walk (well, Braddock actually ran and ran and ran). We learned that dogs can only be on beaches that are unguarded (no lifeguards). We're at the south beach campground, which has lifeguards, and the north beach doesn't so that's Braddock's beach!
... nuclear station and the historic town of Barnegat. About 19 miles in all. Here are some links to historic signs along the path (Aren't you glad you have us to keep you historically informed?)
Today we packed up, said our good-byes to camping neighbors and headed for Maryland. We headed north on I-85 with Kitty and Bobby. We parted ways when we turned east on route 58. Kitty and Bobby continued north on I-85 until they merged on I-95 north and then home to ...
