The Commander is a non-smoking hotel on 14th street in a great location about midway on the Ocean City boardwalk. All suites have a view of the ocean. We found the staff to be very efficient, friendly and helpful. We stayed in the 7th floor Captain’s Suite two years in a row and are booking again for next year.
Our suite had a huge jacuzzi tub, with a double head shower. There was a small kitchen area with a full size refrigerator, microwave, sink, and cupboards. Dishes are provided as well as dish cloths, dish towels and dish soap. The maid changes the towel and dish cloth every day, but you are responsible for washing your own dishes.
This was a very comfortable place to stay. It was very roomy with a king size bed and a sleeper sofa… and the balcony is very big. We comfortably accomodated at least 15 people spread between the room and the balcony for a birthday open house. Although it sleeps 4 people, there is not enough storage for clothes for that many people. We found the storage for clothes lacking a little, but was okay for just the 2 of us.
There is a restaurant on site with a breakfast buffet. The food was okay, but I wouldn’t rate it the best, however, I thought the price was good.
The Commander does not have a big indoor pool, but it does have a very nice, small indoor pool (3 1/2 feet). They have an outdoor pool with a fountain in the middle and a poolside bar. We have never found parking to be a problem when we go here (usually in the middle of June.
We would definitly reccomend staying at The Commander.
