We visit OC every summer and usually stay with my parents in Hidden Harbour. This year there were too many of us and we ended up with two rooms at the Holiday Inn Express for four nights over the 4th of July weekend. First, I have to compliment the staff. The general manager, Marie, responded quickly to my emails and... More

I loved this hotel. We had a bay view and it was so amazing. Ducks were swimming in the pond & you got a great view. The pool room was cold but the pool & the hot tub were warm & clean. The bedrooms & bathrooms were very clean. They have an indoor & outdoor pool. We will come again.

We stayed in the Holiday Inn for a Sand Soccer Tournament. OC, with its noise and crowds is not really our kind of beach vacation. This Holiday Inn is a bit to the north so misses some of the crazy side of OC. The rooms are basic with no balcony but clean and pleasant. The "free" breakfast is pretty basic... More

This hotel is located on the bay side of Ocean City, so don't book expecting oceanfront views. It is located on the northern part of OC, however there are still some dining and entertainment options around. Overall, this hotel was exactly what I expected for a Holiday Inn. I was in a room with 2 queen beds and I would... More

Pew payed 200 a night and it was not worth it. In addition our room was only cleaned twice in 4 days. Internet speed was good. The location was fair . The folks working there were friendly and pleasant. If it wasn't for the cleaning I would rate it a 3

We stayed at this hotel after a horrible night at Best Western down the street. It was truly a world of difference. The hotel is very clean, the staff was friendly, and we enjoyed it very much.

I stayed here with my boyfriend for one night. I chose this hotel because it had an indoor pool because I knew the weather wasn't going to be great the entire stay.
