    The bed had crumbs in it and the couch bed had hairs and sand all in it.

    I've been a long time customer of the Commander Hotel and Suites. Never had any issues, until this stay. Check in time was supposed to be at 4:00PM. Our room wasn't ready until after 6:00PM. After asking for some kind of compensation, we were given the Manager's business card because we booked through a third party. Why bother calling? We booked at the pool view building. The room's carpet and drapes had stains covering them. The "Covid" protectant plastic bag that is meant to be changed between customers. Not changed. The dirty laundry and trash carts never left the hallway. While walking between the two buildings to head to the boardwalk, you pass the employee picnic table. The cleaning staff was out there rolling/smoking weed. I guess this was the delay in customer service. Grotto's a pizza place on site, the air conditioning isn't working. I have another tripped booked to Ocean City, MD and the Commander. And I'm really not looking forward to going back.

    Awesome view, not so awesome room
    Great location; staff were nice and tried to be as helpful as they could; our room was not cleaned good, there were stains and burn marks on the sofa and hair in the bathtub

    Hotel nice...but needs better housekeeping.
    Our room was not very clean, bathroom was gross-looked as if it had not been cleaned at all yet new towels placed there. Shower curtain riped and filthy. Kitchen sink full of sand. Couch old with stains and a hole in the arm of it. Duvet cover on bed stained as well. .

    Poor 2.0
    So disappointed
    We stayed there about a month ago and it wasn’t so great but I chalked it up to it being a new situation with Covid. We stayed this week for a quick getaway. While I know it was the first day after a holiday weekend, this is unacceptable. First, our room was not ready until nearly 7 PM. I had two small children. They did not offer to compensate or accommodate the many many people that were in the same boat as me. Once we got in the room, the air was not working, the floor still had sand in it, the phone did not work. I couldn’t even call out to the front desk to tell them about this because my room phone was broken. The maintenance man was sent up and couldn’t fix it. The next morning we were at the pool and went up to use the restroom and our door was left wide open. There was no reason for anybody to be in there, we had not checked out. When I told the front desk they said that they would address it with housekeeping. That’s it. Our key was shut off before we checked out, the vending machine did not have the items that were associated with the buttons (if you pressed Sprite, you got a cherry Coke). when I asked to speak with the manager I was told she wasn’t there and the best they could offer me was a late check out and maybe some of my money back but the manager wouldn’t be there before I head to check out. I felt bad because the staff were super friendly and doing the best that they could but management obviously needs to be on site more because there are many problems.

    Exceptional 10.0
    excellent stay
    Check in was easy and the room was very clean and comfortable. View and location couldn’t have been better. We were very happy with our stay. I would however suggest placing a clean sheet over the couch, it seemed to need a deep cleaning.
