Stayed here with a friend at the start of our road trip. Turned up without booking. The reception staff wore slow and dull. After what felt like it took forever we finally got to our room. The outside was tidy akd clean. Once in our room it stank a mix of stale curry and damp!!! but for the purpose of...

Got there and it didn't even take me two minutes to hate the staff. The "hallways" getting to the rooms were horrible and covered with cigarette buds and rust from the rusty leaking Air Conditioners. Got into the room and it smelled like vomit and there were holes everywhere in the room (ceiling, floor, walls, etc). The beds were disguising...

After last minute booking, we looked at photos and comments made on here about the admiral and we're very leary of what we did and what to expect. We showed up earlier than our check in time and received our parking pass with no problems. The staff was very nice. When we seen our room we were very satisfied. Not...

Stayed here for 2 days. Smallest bathroom I've ever seen. Moldy shower and tub, no counter. Bed springs sticking out, flat pillows. No WiFi. Water in sink wasn't hot. Dishes had lime and mold. Stove was FILTHY. Housekeeping entered without permission twice, were rude and got in my face. $300 was way too much for this terrible experience. Would have...

We stayed 2 nights and had no issues. Staff at front desk were always nice and friendly. Will defiantly stay again. Perfect location to the board walk and stores. The front porch is great for evening to relax.

Stayed here for 3 nights. It wasn't great and it wasn't awful. You can't beat the price as far as location and the fact that they have a pool. The cleanliness of the place was however much poorer then I expected.

We spent 10 days at the Admiral in Ocean City. Our first two days were in a small one bedroom which worked for us but was very small and did not cool well. The next seven days we spent in a two bedroom apartment which was very nice and everything was great!

I was reluctant to stay after reading other reviews, but have been vacationing in Ocean City, MD for over 30 years. I've stayed at some of the best places when I used to have a ton of "disposable" money, but also stayed in some rather questionable establishments, where they stole my clothes, jewelry, towels, camera, etc. Let me start by...
