The south end of the building is extremely loud at night due to a bar on the first floor on the boardwalk. The whole motel is in need of renovations. The hall ways are dark, dingy, and extremely hot. There is no elevator, so if you're on the 3rd floor, you have to carry luggage up and down 3 floors...

The rooms look like a total dive!!! Everything smells, the hallway, the rooms. Shower like a sprinkler. No iron. Ice cost 25 cents. No closets. Need to close it down and rebuild. The only thing decent is the pool!!!

Stayed at the Rideau Motor Inn for 3 nights - June 11-14. The place is very run down and out-dated. For the money you can stay at a much nicer place in OC. Management never bothered to tell me when I made the reservation that the pool wasn't open and I never would have booked this place is I knew...

Checking in, the main lobby smelled stale. Okay, no problem. We get to our room on the second floor, and WOW. The room smelled terrible, hair on the pillow, leftover water in the fridge, gunk all in the air vents, TV from the late 80's, dirty carpet, rust and mold in the bathroom, mirror falling off the wall, dirty microwave;...

This hotel didn't stand out as anything super special but it wasn't terrible either. I guess I'll start with the PROS: The location is just amazing and the price wasn't bad. The beach front porches were so much fun and the pool was a decent size. The rooms weren't dirty but my husband wasn't very happy with the bathroom we...

Stayed there last Memorial Day weekend it was a great location and the rooms were very roomy! Its not a five star but everything was clean and staff was quick to help with any needs you had. I would definately recommend this place if you dont expect a red carpet and dont want to pay a fortune!

We went to ocean city on memorial day weekend last minute. Found this place reasonably priced. But DIRTY rooms our feet were black within 5steps into the room. Shower had very little water pressure.But location was nice right on the boardwalk and the ladies at the desk were very nice.

The room was clean and the staff was friendly, and we would definitely stay here again. It all boils down to what you want out of your hotel room. The room was not "hear a pin drop quiet" at night, but none of the hotels on the Inlet end of Boardwalk are, but it's quiet enough to sleep. The hotel...

Our annual mini break to Ocean City, MD took us to Rideau Motor Inn for three nights. It was reasonably priced and at a prime location. Let me start with the Pros: - As mentioned, the location can’t be beat. We were located in the midst of all the action at the boardwalk. Also had an ocean front room. Loved...
