Let's start with the good points...beachfront, great view of the ocean. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay due to last minute change in our plans. The direct oceanfront room had a completely unobstructed view of the ocean. The eastern oceanfront room also had a great view of the ocean, but it overlooked the pool and tennis courts.... More

This is one of my favorite vacation spots. Hotel can use a little updating but the amenities are unbelievable. Your away from the boardwalk so the beach is not crowded for day and your only a 5 minute drive from the boardwalk for night. You have an indoor and outdoor pool with a poolside bar and grill. Your also right... More

We stayed there a few days last week. The staff is wonderful and ready and willing to help with any problem which we had one big problem. But, the hotel is smelly and very outdated. I think that many beachfront hotels have the same type of problems. You pay sooo much money for hotels up there until you expect sometimes... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. I thought the service, amenities, and price where all above acceptable. The room was a little run-down, but about what I expect for such a busy vacation spot. The restaurant was very reasonable (they had a kids-eat-free offer though we didn't take advantage). The pool, game room, and gym are open late. I... More

This hotel is pretty god for ocean city. We enjoy coming for long weekends as its not a bad drive. The holiday inn is a great value. There are really 3 nice hotels in ocean city. The Hilton, the Marriott, and the new holiday inn. These three hotels are usually booked and cost much more than this holiday inn. The... More

Our first night, the bed was way too soft. If I sat on the edge, it sank down alarmingly. The next day, I just casually asked the front desk "when are the mattresses due to be changed out, I think ours is shot" and they replied they replace them every year. I was not actively complaining or looking for a... More

We just came back from Ocean City last night. This was our 3rd year in a row vacationing there. I was hoping the hotel would be just as nice as the pictures on their website, and luckily it was!!!! The hotel was well kept, although it can use some updating. Their staff was so friendly and helpful. The hotel itself... More

The location was good if you want to be on the beach. However it was too far to walk to the boardwalk. The hotel needs a lot of TLC. The carpets are spotted and the rooms need some updating. The shower curtain had mold stains and there were cracks in the shower tiles. The hotel entrance is hidden to the... More

We were able to use priority club points to rent two rooms which was great! The view from the south side 5th floor of pool, ocean and tennis courts was very nice. The place was always bustling with life and music. It's also very pretty with palm trees, hammocks, a tiki hut and swim up bar. They also have a... More

i am writing this on our first day at this hotel but already i am very impressed. My wife is extremely demanding and so far the staff has catered to her every whim. She called the front desk at 10pm for extra pillows and they were brought within minutes. I was concerned that the staff may not be so friendly... More
