10th Anniversary Weekend
This was our 10th anniversary. We love it here. The balcony with ocean view is breathtaking! What a wonderful gesture by the staff as they treated us with a complimentary bottle of wine placed in the bucket of sand (how appropriate!) with fresh flowers to celebrate our 10th year. We love the atmosphere and, of course, Coconuts bar and grill….we couldn’t ask for a better place to stay at OCMD!!
Natural Beauty
I had a Suite, it was huge ! Great living room with a balcony overlooking the dunes and Atlantic, sunrise was epic! Definitely going back here to soak up some sun and water.
Would never stay anywhere else!
My family has been staying here for 30+ years. The beach cottages have been recently renovated, very nice for families–full kitchen and porch. Olympic swimming pool with diving board. Attentive life guards. Private beach with food and beverage service on the beach and around the pool. Attached to Coconuts beach bar with lite fare and live music. Kids club activities in-season.
Never had a bad stay, always a great one!
I have stayed at the “Castle” a few times, and never had a bad stay….only great ones ! I have never had a hotel staff as friendly as this one. They treat you like family. This place is a true gem in Ocean City!

We had an awesome time, again!
Fun atmosphere. Quick response from front desk with any issues. Love, love, love the pool. Live music daily with BOGO Happy Hour. This is probably our 10th stay here and we will be back for number 11!
End of summer getaway
We stayed her Labor Day weekend and were once again very satisfied with our stay!!! My Husband and I always choose to stay here as a first choice because the room(Waverly Oceanfront) is perfect. It has a small kitchenette with pots/pans/plates etc for when you wanna fix a meal in the room. Coconuts Bar and Grill is excellent for lunch out, its located on the property. Coconut crushes are my fave! We cant say enough about this place, ALWAYS a great time! We love it. Great for families!!
Very nice
Very nice. Booked ocean view with balcony and kitchenette. The view was beautiful and relaxing. Included WiFi. Had iron and ironing board, hangers. Rented umbrella and beach chairs. Would definitely stay here again.
Everything you might want in a vacation is right here!
Rooms were very clean. The staff very friendly and helpful. All you can eat breakfast offers everything you want for breakfast. They also offer food/beverage service on the beach and at the pool. Activities are planned for children as well. Thank you for a wonderful vacation, Castle.
Great Hotel, Incredible Staff”
Check-in was very easy and fast. The gentleman that checked us in was very pleasant. Our room was spacious and the layout was perfect, we could sit and listen to the nightly entertainment. The staff did a fantastic job of keeping our room clean. The location of the hotel was by far the best on the island. Everything was with-in walking distance from the hotel. The staff was always pleasant and a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely return to this hotel next summer. Don’t hesitate to book a vacation here!!!
Wonderful Vacation
Stayed at the Waverly Castle efficiency in August. Beautiful, clean room with very comfortable beds. Maid service was excellent. Beautiful pool and grounds and staff very friendly. I loved the waitress service on the beach and had a Rum Runner every day I was on the beach. I figured it’s vacation…why not? I will definitely be back. WE all had a wonderful time.
Super clean, great location, unbelievable activities for ALL ages!!!!! Im booking already for next year!!!!! Great friendly staff! Close to the boardwalk! We had our own entrance to the beach and rentals were cheap and convenient
Best Staff and Service Ever!
This was our second summer there and we were overwhelmed again by how great it is — the staff, the location, the great family friendly movie nights and the scene Oceanside or poolside is very chill. Such warmth is hard to find at hotels these days. Keep up the great work.
