“Our family vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012

Our family stays at FSK every year and we love it!! The staff and front desk accomidated our every need while there and its the best value for your money so close to Ocean City. Our whole family is in a pic on your website (the one in the quad pool the day they built the cardboard boats) and my 9yr. old now thinks he is famous. LOL. We will continue to stay with FSK every summer, its our home away from home.

Can't wait for number 6! We are blessed that we have so many return guests. As we are getting ready to celebrate our 40th year it has been a great reflection on how many memories I have been able to create here at the Francis Scott Key with so many special families! Thank You!

I've stayed here multiple times with my family and have always had a great stay. The kids love the pirate ship and always seem to make friends! The main lobby has a great appearance to it and gives off a wonderful first impression. The beds are now temperpedic which is ok but makes me wonder how clean they are stay after stay. Also because it isn't as close to the beach as some hotels there is a shuttle that runs basically all day which is very convenient. All around great price for a family orientates hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do have Tempurpedic mattresses and they are protected the same way standard mattresses are with a cover which we clean on a cyclical basis. The shuttle has become one of out top amenities and is a convenient and free way to access the beach! We look forward to seeing your family again soon!

Our first stay was in June 2007, two of my children are featured on your website in the Sprayground banner picture on the Pirate Ship slides under amenities :). The kids had a blast and I enjoyed my stay as well. We always stay in one of the rooms with a full kitchen, which saves on the cost of going out to eat for all meals and located across from a shopping plaza with a decently priced grocery store. We returned in June 2009 and had a great experience as well. Now that the kids are older, we are coming back this July 2012. I'm looking forward to seeing all the upgrades and improvements as well as the new 50's diner and the kids are looking forward to the fun. The location is very convenient and the kids love both pools, playground, mini-golf and easy access to the beach and boardwalk. Can't wait to arrive in 4 weeks!

This was my first stay at FSK, and overall it was a very nice experience. The rooms were clean, the staff was very pleasant, the amenities were amazing! As for the management, Anne Marie... was a life saver! I had left a very important UPS package (payroll) at the front desk. The FSK staff made a mistake and the package was not picked-up. I called Anne Marie as soon as I realized that it had not been delivered and she personally took the package to UPS for me.
Thank you Anne Marie! I was able to make payroll on time!

Thanks for taking the time to write! I always believe people don't expect perfection as it is not possible but it is what you do when you make a mistake that leaves the biggest impression! So relieved that payroll checks made it on time! Hope that when you return to Ocean City you will stop in and ask for me!
