“Clean & Quaint”
Reviewed 17 May 2011

I just returned from a weekend stay and must say it was quite enjoyable. This is more a romantic retreat than somewhere to go with friends or children. It is set back off Coastal Highway (about a 10 minute drive ~ without traffic ~ to the Ocean City Boardwalk; about 35 -45 mins to get to the Rehobeth Beach outlets for shopping) and has very quiet surroundings sitting right on the water. The reception/check-in area was on the ground floor and our room was on the 1st floor. There are 2 floors of rooms at this hotel, which really has more of a bed and breakfast feel based on how it is laid out.


To keep it short and sweet, I would not have an issue staying at this hotel again and here are my thoughts on the pros and cons:

Pros
-Greeted with mimosas and with help getting bags to the room

-Pleasant receptionist

-Nice lounge area, both indoors and outdoors

-Large, spacious, and generally clean room (some spotting on carpets, but definitely not a deal breaker for me)

-DVD Player

-Wet bar

-Mini-refrigerator ~ it's actually a bit larger than a standard mini-refrigerator (see picture) with freezer and was stocked with a couple bottles of water and canned sodas (not sure if these were free or not since I did not drink any of those items)

-Comfortable bed

-Whirlpool tub and very clean bathroom

-Deck off of bedroom (did not use though)

-Free parking

-Room service (within certain hours)

Cons
-Based on the open layout of the hotel, noise from the reception/check-in area may travel to your room. Our room was basically right above the reception area, so at times we would hear folks conversing, checking in, etc. I would suggest trying to get a room on the second floor if you really want to try and avoid this, but it still may be an issue just based on the layout of the hotel, which frankly is quite unique and is one of the reasons I was interested in staying here.

-Slightly dated furniture and fixtures (again, not a deal breaker for me)

-Noise from neighbors running whirlpool (whirlpool jets are loud). Of course you cannot control when folks would like to make use of their whirlpool, but this is just something to take note of, as I was awakened early one morning by this and unfortunately because I am a very light sleeper, was unable to get back to sleep

-Noise from upstairs neighbors walking around (not sure if they were just hard walkers or if the space between the upper and lower level of rooms is just that thin). Whatever the case, to avoid this if you might find this bothersome, you may want to consider a room on the top floor, which I would do if I visited this establishment again.

Room Tip: If room available, stay on the top floor.

We went to OC for our 15th anniversary. We picked the perfect place! So many great features: amazing view, super comfortable bed, great pillows, jacuzzi, fireplace, mimosa at check-in, turn down service (with lighting candles, chocolate, and breakfast for the morning), coffee and cookies in lounge room, golf cart to take us to Fagers for dinner, bath robes, hair dryer, make-up mirror, shampoo/soap/makeup remover, wine/beer that you can charge to room in lounge, rockers on the bottom deck, short walk to beach. Worth the price, we would stay again!

While expensive, this hotel offered a wonderful room overlooking the bay. The service was excellent and I would certainly stay here again.

This is not a hotel for children or kids. It much more a couple's retreat than anything else.

We absolutely loved the views from the balcony. I don't think we had neighbors but if we did it wouldn't have provided much privacy on the balcony. It was a treat that they provided muffins and chocolate and orange juice.

Whenever we plan to ride the Seagull Century in Maryland, we stay at the Lighthouse Club hotel. We usually get a lightkeeper's suite, but booked late and stayed in a regular room this time. The room was still plenty spacious, comfortable, clean & with a nice view of the bay. Comparing with previous stays, we thought it's about time for some refurbishment - just getting abit worn and alittle musty. We enjoy the easy access to Fager's Island restaurant and had two excellent dinners. Staff is friendly and had no problem with us storing our bikes in the room. We'll be back next year, but plan to try out the Edge next door.
