Came down to Ocean City for the cheerleading competition. Even though the hotel was full there was plenty to eat and the staff was very friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. Would recommend and stay the next time we are here.

My family and I stayed here for a mini weekend. We had not been to OC for approximately 2years and was looking forward to it. We checked in late the night of Easter and it was an ok property from what we could see. The room appeared small or smaller than usual. It appeared that some renevation has taken place.... More

I have stayed her 2 times. I tried the holiday Inn on the beach at 6600 coastal highway and we did not like it as much. Our room was dated and drafty. Seemed like it might have been the older part of the hotel though (was an Ocean front room). Much nicer room at the Holiday inn express.

We went last minute down the Ocean for an over night stay. While I wanted to get an Ocean Front room someplace I found that most of the hotels were closed and the ones open were booked up with a Convention in town. We were able to find a room here facing the bay and it was nice. Staff were... More

Our family stayed for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The free breakfast was delicious with lots of choices! Ann Marie was very attentive in the breakfast area. The front desk staff was very helpful and smiled all the time! They greeted us each time we came and went. Tara, Jamie... More

Second year in Ocean City over the holiday break, tried HIE on a whim and now looking into booking for the Easter break. Beautiful views, clean rooms, nice suite-set ups, and wonderful and helpful staff.

Horribly disappointed! My family has stayed here each December for the last 5+ years, but this will most certainly be our last stay at this hotel. We checked in around 9 pm Friday night. At 11pm, my son discovered bed bugs on the beds. Upsetting, but I understand it happens in the hospitality industry occasionally. We then changed rooms/floors, nothing... More

We used IHG points for a quick getaway at the end of the summer. We like the north end of Ocean City so this hotel is in a perfect location for us and we enjoyed using the park immediately behind the hotel for morning walks. There are several good food options in walking distance as well. Our room was fine,... More
