When planning a golf vacation there are several things you have to take into account and obviously lodging is one of them. We consider four main factors when recommending places to stay, Location, Price, Cleanliness and how the facilities are equipped. As we wind our way down the eastern seaboard our first stop is in Ocean City Maryland, a fine destination for late fall and early spring golf and it is only four easy hours from mid central New Jersey. We are happy to report that we found a gem in the Tidelands Caribbean Hotel.
Location – How can you beat being right on the boardwalk with an ocean view off of your balcony. Located on 5th street this hotel is extremely convenient to get to the best golf courses in the area. To get to Rum Pointe and War Admiral you simply go over the bridge and you are five minutes away. A little to the north you get to Light house point in 15 minutes. It couldn’t be easier . There are a multitude of restaurant within five minutes away. This is an A plus location.
Price – fall is offseason and this hotel for a two bedroom king sweet was $58 dollars a night. Hard to beat.
Cleanliness – the room was set up perfectly, very clean and well stocked with toiletries.
Equipped – the room came with a small kitchenette which means it has a micro way, fridge, and stove top so you can whip up some early morning oatmeal, coffee and a pasta meal if you desired. There are pots pans, glasses and flatware. All you need for a simple holiday away. The bedrooms are large. The main with balcony has an ample sized table if you happen to need to do some work, a two seat sofa, cable TV and internet which was fast enough for us to put out the news and upload large pictures files with no issue. If you were traveling with two couples, a family of four or two golfers there is ample space. The bathroom has a large soaking tub should you play 36 holes in one day and need a good soak for the back.
Overall this is a very nice facility that is perfect for the golf getaway. If you are traveling to Ocean City for a golf getaway you would be hard pressed to do better for the price. We can highly recommend.
