The Dunes Manor Hotel is a 170-room property with a refined, distinctive look, complete with Victorian-style details in the public spaces. The guest rooms are not so unique however, as they have fairly generic, unremarkable decor. Each room does have a private balcony overlooking the beach. The hotel is located right on the ocean, with lovely views of sand and sea. It is situated in an ideal spot that is near the boardwalk, but far enough off the main drag for peace and quiet.
Princess Royale Resort is a three-pearl property with a nice public beachfront and loads of features, but it's beginning to show its age in terms of decor and cleanliness. Most of the guests are families and couples who want to enjoy the indoor swimming pool, restaurants, on-site spa, and video game arcade while taking advantage of spacious suites and condos with full kitchens; some have ocean views. The condos are privately owned, so decor and maintenance varies from unit to unit. The location is about 10 minutes from the boardwalk, making this a slightly out of the way but quieter hotel option.
This 251-room, mid-range hotel is located next to the beach and the boardwalk in the midst of all the action Ocean City has to offer. The Grand Hotel has a spa and sauna, indoor and outdoor pools, conference rooms, a restaurant, pool bar, and 24-hour coffee shop. Rooms are big but bland, with unattractive furnishings. All have free Wi-Fi and some have ocean views and private balconies. This hotel is a solid choice for budget travelers looking for direct access to the beach in the heart of Ocean City.
