All FSK had to offer was great! Location and the staff was wonderful working with us with reservations, preparing the hospitality room and keeping a check on the grounds. The porches provided those extra "at home" and "neighborhood" feelings, whether standing, leaning on the railings or sitting on chairs in a group."
Home away from home; home by the ocean. Morning staff with coffee and Grab N Go breakfast provided service with a smile. Whole staff was friendly, helpful and professional. They were very knowledgeable about their property and boardwalk events. It was superb. Keep up the fine work. Will see you next year."

We have 2 little children, so it's tough to find a vacation that will work for them w/o getting stir crazy in the room. This was the best experience. Since this was our first trip, we had to go off of the experience from a co-worker. The website was very informative, but we were a bit skeptical as to the various pools, etc. Your resort was above and beyond our expectations. we used a fair amount of our package deals, and would have used more if our kids were a little older. Hopefully next year! Even though we were at the beach, vacationing, we never made it to the sand... that sums up how much we enjoyed the resort. HIGHLIGHT: All 4 of us enjoyed the sprayground! That was the favorite place to be since it's all fenced in, and we didn't have to hold our 1 year old boy. The indoor pool was awesome too. Our kids loved Trimpers Rides...
I absolutely loved staying at FSK! My children were also very happy with it. It rained for us a little each day we were there, and they were still able to swim and do other things instead of being cooped up in a hotel room. We were very impressed with the attention that was given to our room when cleaned. Some added touches with wash cloths and a few other things really made my kids get excited when they seen things. My husband, and I will be sure to be returning this year, and also next year we will be returning again as a family. We have all decided that this is where we want to stay every year. The shuttle bus was very helpful to us also!! We were just in general very pleased with everything.
What a wonderful place to stay, I would recommend it to everyone. The FSK is very much a Family Resort, we have stayed there 2 times and will stay there again next year. I have stayed at many places in Ocean City but the FSK is by far the best. I loved the quiet times at night, no noise which was wonderful, and also the no smoking rooms what a blessing walking into a room that doesn't stink of cigarettes. I think the indoor pool was great the kids loved it. Also what a great idea the shuttle, you never waited more then 10 - 15 minutes for a ride. The rooms were very well kept during our stay, and if you ever needed anything the staff was right on it. Free movie rental's who would have thought, no place I ever stayed did that. Finally I give the Staff a big thumbs up they were WONDERFUL!
We have been staying at FSK since the late 70's. I have so many great memories. My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon in 1981 and we have never be happy anyplace else. I will tell my favorite memory that touched our hearts. We were at FSK and all of a sudden the ice cream man pulled up. Kids ran from all over yelling at their parents for money. We then saw a man walk up to the truck and said give them whatever they want. My hubby and I were at the back of a long line. Then the man said you two get what you want to . We were shocked. We told him thanks and then an hour long conversation took place. He then told us I am Mr. Kenny Baker and I am the owner. He said he wanted to keep his guests happy. I was glad to see a man who really cared about everyones happiness. He also said he wanted to keep the FSK for famlies to come and enjoy and to not go broke. We were saddened by his death but at this time we are so full of joy when we come to the ocean and remember the man who cared about his guests. Thanks go out to Annemarie and Jim as well for trying to keep his dream alive... Best Luck to the FSK...

The Francis Scott Key Family Resort , the long-time running family spot in West Ocean City, keeps updating, and has added an indoor water park for guests, geared to the younger set with slides, waterfalls, and fun water toys. It may not be Jungle Jim's, but you'll thank your forward-thinking spouse on the third rainy day

One of the three pools at the West Ocean City resort, the new 6,000 square-foot indoor pool - the only one is West Ocean City - is a wonderful, sight yet to be seen by most of the local public

Eureka! I found my little bit of winter paradise. Oh, it's so much fun! Grimacing, life-size pirates greet you at the door, and a 5 foot serpent undulates in the water at the Caribbean Key
