This is a clean and affordable place with a great location in Ocean City. I had two oceanfront suites for a great price. My son and I have been coming here since he was two and he will be 15 this year and the hotel manger still remembers us. The location on the beach, near the carnival and other activities makes it the perfect location for family fun.

Room Tip: The 4th and 3rd floor have connecting suites for a great family atmosphere.

Our stay was in an ocean front room on the second floor, nice, but I'd want to go higher (There are five floors.). The room and bathroom were clean and kept that way by the hardworking staff. The sliding glass door to the balcony had no screen door, a shame because the sound of the ocean at night was preferable to the loud rumbling of the through-the-wall air conditioner. The A/C admittedly did keep the room cool. We finally cracked the door a bit to escape the artificial noise; no problem with mosquitos. The "climb-around or crawl-under" partitions on our balcony made us a little uneasy; why don't the partitions extend low enough or out enough to keep our neighbors from possibly coming over to "visit"?

Indoor heated pool was very nice as was outdoor pool. If you have a first floor room you and the outdoor pool users can get to know each other; take a first floor room only to avoid a room in the streetside annex with the parking lot view.

The "free continental breakfast" offered in the office lobby is absolutely dreadful; ghastly plastic wrapped bagels and muffins that taste like sweetened cardboard, bad coffee and so-so juice. Rodeway should abandon this "perk" or expend just a little effort to put out better food. Indeed, why not just include a free voucher, say, $3 per guest at the McDonald's across the road for breakfast items that are far more edible( We stayed at a HoJo's in St. George UT that had multiple cereal choices, oatmeal packets, fresh fruit, bread and English muffins for toasting plus decent coffee, Twinings tea and juice in a small but pleasant breakfast room, all at a most reasonable room rate.).

Room Tip: Again, get an oceanfront room as high as possible. Stay somewhere else if the first floor and annex...

We stay down in Ocean City quite a bit for nighttime entertainment, and finding a clean and affordable place is always like finding a needle in a haystack. $90 total for a one night Saturday stay at this time of year usually puts you in a roach motel. Both front desk clerks that I iteracted with were knowledgeable and friendly. The room wasn't the grandest in the land, but it had all of the usual amenities that you expect to find at this rating level. Everything was clean and in working order, the bed was comfortable, and surprisingly, the location was quiet, I thought it would be noisier. The hotel is right on the beach with beach access, and has two pools. Very impressed with the facility for the price.

Room Tip: Oceanfront on the first floor does not provide a view of the water due to dunes in the way

I picked this hotel because it was close to the beach. I stayed there over labor day weekend and we stayed in the building closer to the road (since it was more that $200 cheaper than the oceanside building.) There are bedbugs somewhere in that building. Both the matress and the boxspring were enclosed in bedbug entrapments (the heavy zippered bags your mattress in when you have an infestation) and showed the telltale brownish bloodspots of bedbug waste. The mattresses themselves however were brand new. The sheets and comforters had the spots too. I literally pulled the beds apart, pulled the pictures off the walls, took the covers off the electrical outlets and I saw no bedbugs in our room, but they are there somewhere. The room was just dirty in general and worn out. The exhaust from the air conditioning unit smelled like sour milk. I kept out bags in contractor bags and have begun the freezing/frying process of "decontaminating" all our belongings.

Save yourself the work and the restless sleep and book somewhere else.
