FSK: Family Resort in Ocean City

Everything you need to know about the Francis Scott Key Family Resort in Ocean City, Maryland is in its name. A cozy feeling motel with several large buildings as well as cottages which offers the perfect environment for a family vacation in a resort town.  The hotel was built by the Hastings family in 1953.  In 1972 Kenny Baker bought the property with a partner and then he purchased his partner’s share to become the sole owner in 1978.  Now run by his daughter, Anne Marie Dickerson, and her family, the Francis Scott Key harkens back to an older era of resort experiences and good, old-fashioned customer service.
