“your relaxing home away from home”
The Lankford Hotel was built by the Mary B. Quillen in 1924 and has remained in the family since that time. Mary ran the hotel solely until 1962 when her niece Betty Frame and her husband Warren purchased the hotel four days before the famous hurricane of 1962. This proved to be an omen of things to come. However, after several hurricanes which rearranged the basement of the hotel, the Lankford is still standing and has improved with age. As Ocean City grew so did the Lankford. Betty and Warren remodeled the hotel, turning some of the rooms into apartments and added more buildings as they went along. Today the Lankford Property consists of the main hotel, located at 801-805 boardwalk, the Ayresbilt, which holds 9 apartments, the Sea Robin which is a three floor, two apartment building and the Lankford Lodge which has two apartments and 11 rooms. The one thing that has remained solid about the hotel property and has become one of our main attractions, is the fact that we have always remained a family establishment. We love the family atmosphere and hold on to that image. We do not rent to groups of people in order to maintain a quiet atmosphere. While we want everyone to have fun, we maintain quiet so that the babies and children can sleep at anytime in the rooms, no radios allowed on the outside porches and we ask that all guests vacate our guests rooms by 11:00 p.m. so that no doors will be banging late at night. In fact, in the main building we still lock our front doors at 2:30 in the morning. Should tenants be out after that time, they will remain out until we unlock the doors at 6:30am. All of this is to instill safety and security for the tenants. We want no one walking the halls and knocking on doors and disturbing the vacations of those visiting our properties.
