  • Breakfast not included

Bottom Line

This 200-room, mid-range Comfort Inn sits two blocks from the beach on the northern end of Ocean City, next to a mall with restaurants and a movie theater. A back patio overlooks the surrounding marsh. Rooms are spacious, and some have bay views. It’s almost a 20-minute drive to the Ocean City boardwalk, but the Comfort Inn's location might suit budget-minded travelers seeking a bit of respite. Breakfast is not included in the room rate, but the hotel is attached to a 24-hour Denny’s. There's a large, beautiful indoor pool and whirlpool surrounded by windows, a small fitness center with cardio and weight machines, and a convenience store. While the property is clean, some areas are worn, and maintenance problems are not uncommon, but guests report they're addressed quickly. Another option away from the boardwalk buzz is the Carousel Resort Hotel & Condominiums, which includes and ice-skating rink.

Scene

Dark-wood chain decor, a large indoor pool, and a lovely marsh and bay views

This Comfort Inn sits on a landscaped property, adjacent to a large parking lot. The lobby includes bright green-and-red carpeting, a cream-colored sectional sofa, and some rust-colored and brown-and-beige patterned armchairs. The large, windowed pool area, with its hot tub and ceiling draped in strips of lime, gray, and blue fabric, is a highlight and a popular spot. The patio, with white-plastic tables, chairs, and loungers, offers lovely views of the surrounding marsh and nearby bay. Though the property shows some wear, overall, it's well-maintained, and is popular with families.
