Darlene at the inlet near the Oceanic Motel

When planning your trip to Ocean City, MD it seems that everyone and their brother has an opinion about which event is best to check out, what hotel you should rest your head in, or where you should grab your Happy Hour drink. However, one thing many of you may not have heard about is an amazing group of individuals who can say without a doubt that they are the experts on Ocean City, MD. Who is this group you may ask?! None other than our own OC Insiders!

Last year a friendly face checked into my hotel, The Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites, her name was Darlene (aka Momoo on TripAdvisor and Z06RL on the oceancity.com forums). I knew I recognized her name, but it was not until she told me she was an OC Insider that all the bells and whistles went off in my head. Oh MAN! I better mind my p's and q's and get this lady a chocolate strawberry tray immediately, this is exactly who we need to write about OUR hotel. Everyone will listen!

Darlene is probably laughing right now and wondering where in the World that strawberry tray disappeared to. In reality, she has become a sweet friend and I truly enjoy her following on the Holiday Inn Suite's Facebook page. She was my inspiration for writing about the OC Insiders, in the first place.

Dogtel Hotel

Attention dog and cat lovers! As you may already know, most Ocean City hotels do not allow pets. Rather than leaving your pet at home consider bringing them along and making accommodations for your furry friends at the Dogtel Hotel.

Located on route 50 just 2 miles west of Ocean City the Dogtel Hotel is an easy place to stop on your way to your Ocean City hotel. I recently met with Dan, the owner of the Dogtel Hotel, along with longtime employees/dog whispers ...read more

Ocean City Golf Course

How does Ocean City Golf Club stand out from the others? For starters, not only is it a yacht club but it also has TWO golf courses. Secondly, other courses don’t have Buddy Sass. It is not every day you meet a man like Sass; he has been head of the pro shop for Ocean City Golf Club for nearly 14 years. His air of confidence on the sport convinced me he was capable of answering all of the amateur-ish questions I could muster up.

As I sat and spoke with Sass ...read more

Golfers riding down the cart path at Eagles Landing
Watering the greens at Eagles Landing

Being an amateur to everything golf I am excited to embark on an adventure where I learn from the best about the sport. For ten weeks I will be sitting down with head professionals at golf courses surrounding the Ocean City area.

This week I had the opportunity of speaking with Bob Croll at Eagles Landing Golf Course. It was a great relief to have sat with a man who was so optimistic about sharing information about a course he’s so familiar with.

Like many ...read more

Henrys Hotel in Ocean City Md

Tucked away next to the bus station on the corner of South Division and Baltimore Ave, Henry’s Hotel was built in 1895 in a time when Ocean City was deeply segregated.

It’s astounding to think there was a time when music legends like Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Count Basie and Louis Armstrong came to Ocean City, performed in major hotel ballrooms yet were not permitted to sleep in the same hotels where they performed. Instead they stayed at Henry's Hotel. ...read more

New Boardwalk in Ocean City

There's nothing like the smell of fresh salt air. But mix in the scents of some newly laid boards and it only gets better.

The Ocean City boardwalk project is a 2 year project but the south end is already looking great. The North end is getting there too, but they still have a few streets to go.

Check out some more Ocean City boardwalk construction pics on flickr.

Sunset Park

On the corner of S Division and Philadelphia Ave (a stone's throw from the Oceanic) there's a sweet little spot where you can enjoy the bay and take in an amazing Ocean City sunset.

Check out Sunset Park on any Thursday this July and August for some live music.
