We came after the season, but it was warm enough for the beach. The rates were great and the room/suite was really spacious and clean. We had two queen beds with kitchen and living/dining room. The living room looked out onto the beach with a picture window and balcony. Plenty of comfortable seating for six (the number the room sleeps)...

We stayed here for a big event that was hosted right outside the hotel. We arrived really late and it was a short stay but I wished we would have been able to make one more day out of it! Because we got there so late, we were tired and couldn't really get a sense of the hotel. Our group...

This establishment is a party spot. Loud and not very clean...in fact I would classify it as dirty. Our first room smelled of marijuana. So bad so that it caused a respiratory reaction. Second room was ok. Very basic accommodations, especially the basic bathroom. One elevator was out of service for the entire weekend. Hallways and stairwells dirty and closer...

We stayed in the Waverly Castle. Our room was very spacious and well stocked. We had a beautiful ocean view. Check-in and out was simple, staff was nice, and our room was clean. Coconuts was a great spot to grab a drink and something to eat. (Although they're now closed for the off-season.)

Attentive life guards. Private beach with food and beverage service on the beach and around the pool. Attached to Coconuts beach bar with lite fare and live music. Kids club activities...

We have been going to this particular facility for many years. Why? Because this is one of, if not THE best place in Ocean City, MD. Here are the particulars: STAFF: Beyond excellent. Great people. Exceptionally helpful. The Best. Expense: Not exceptionally expensive in my opinion. Easy to find: Excellent (Right off of the main highway headed north of OCMD)...

We booked (with a 14 day cancellation policy) for a room in the Waverly...don't do it.

OK - this isn't really a review of the hotel. I'm sure it's nice, BUT the real reason I go here is for the courtyard beach bar called Coconuts. Ever since I tried my first Tipsy Turtle (their signature drink), I was hooked. This is only a seasonal establishment, but I would try to go everyday between 5-6 PM for...

This hotel was very nice.Check-in was smooth. Everyone we encountered was very nice, especially our waitress at the restaurant. Our room was very clean and very accommodating. The view was unbeatable. We stayed in the Waverly building. Will definitely return.

I have stayed at the "Castle" a few times, and never had a bad stay....only great ones ! I have never had a hotel staff as friendly as this one. They treat you like family. I was on the 4th floor oceanside North Penthouse. Great view indeed ! I will be planning on coming down early May before Memorial Day....
