Not worth the cost.. wait until construction done
The hotel is under construction which we knew but didn't realize how much it affected the stay. Their restaurant was closed for construction so no room service of any kind. The room itself was spacious but dirty. Sand on the floor, dead bugs squashed on the floor and ceiling, and needed to wipe down the bathtub before use. The service was also not great. The people at the front desk were not very nice and didn't give us any good useful info. There was no welcome packet or info so we had no idea what was closed or open or what was close by or any events happening. There was a lot of private property around that area so you couldn't go to a lot of areas. Also the boardwalk area with little beach, you had to pay to sit on the beach, which we did not do. Overall the service wasn't great but we made due on our own. Just not what we were expecting for paying this amount at a resort. There should have at least been ample information and the service people should have been more considerate. Will definitely not be staying here again.

A Chesapeake Beach Vacation!!
The Rod & Reel Hotel provides a calming resort experience. It's located on the Weather Shore of the Chesapeake Bay in a calming environment that is free of the hustle & bustle of the city. The Rod & Reel Hotel has an atmosphere that is Adult, Senior Citizen and Family friendly.There is adequate parking in the garage with handicap and valet parking. The Rod & Reel Resort provides well prepared food options in the Rod & Reel Restaurant.There are Gaming Rooms with many exciting games, Bingo in a room that I overlooks the Chesapeake Bay, Fishing Boats to practice the use of the rod & reel in the Chesapeake Bay. The atmosphere around the hotel is a pleasant place to walk and a Water Park for the young is nearby for warm Summer Days. During the Summer there is outdoor entertainment in a Concert Series.The Rod & Reel Hotel & Resort provides banquet services for special occasions for large & small groups. I give Rod & Reel Resort and Hotel a Thumbs Up!

Beautiful Setting and Pleasant Stay
The resort is situated on the Chesapeake Bay and offers incredible water views. The staff was very friendly and check-in was super easy. The mattresses need to be replaced. They were way too soft. Housekeeping is offered daily which is a nice feature since most hotels no longer offer daily service. The hotel was fully booked and it was not loud in the hallways or in the room. I visited 2 restaurants on the property. They both offer a very good selection of reasonably priced delicious foods. The parking is free and the garage has ample spaces available. There is a little bit of a walk from the garage to the hotel; however, I believe the hotel offers shuttle service. The game room is open 24/7 and on Friday and Saturday nights there is a DJ that plays a good variety of music. Overall my stay was very enjoyable. I hope the mattresses are updated very soon.
